Do You Want a Brighter Smile?
If your smile is otherwise a healthy one but you are looking to improve its appearance then teeth whitening in your dentist's office may be just the thing for you. A procedure is especially helpful to anyone with stubborn food stains that don't respond to regular brushing or in-office cleanings.
Are Your Teeth Chipped or Cracked?
Employing dental bonding your dentist can correct small cracks and chips on your teeth, and even gaps between them. The tooth-colored resin is bonded onto the tooth in layers and is then shaped into the desired appearance.
This same resin can be used to fill cavities as an alternative to traditional amalgam fillings.
Are You Missing Teeth?
If you are missing a tooth you know just how much it can affect the way you feel about your smile. But the impact of a gap in your smile goes beyond aesthetics as it can cause the remaining teeth to shift because of the empty space. This can lead to crowding and other spacing problems. Dental implants can restore your missing tooth without the need to impact those adjacent to it. The result is a permanent tooth loss solution that acts and looks just like a natural tooth, and that with proper care can last a lifetime.
Do You Want a Full Smile Makeover?
Maybe what you are looking for is a completely new smile and dental veneers can offer just that. A significantly less invasive treatment to those offering similar results, dental veneers are thin but durable caps that are bonded onto your teeth. They don't require as much of your tooth to be reshaped, as would be the case with crowns, which translates into a faster overall treatment. Veneers are an excellent option for correcting misshapen teeth and slight gaps but are also perfect for addressing stains that teeth whitening cannot overcome.
