Your health is your dentist’s number one priority; however, your dental team also wants you to feel that your smile looks its best.
If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, you should know that modern cosmetic dentistry offers help. Discuss your cosmetic goals with us so that we can design a comprehensive treatment plan for you!
Whitening your teeth is one of the simplest and most cost effective improvements you can make.
A veneer is a thin piece of porcelain or composite resin that is bonded to the front of your tooth. Veneers can be used to correct cosmetic problems by improving the color, shape, length, or size of a tooth. You can get one veneer or multiple, depending on your cosmetic goals.
If you need a filling, there are two main materials that can be used to do the job – amalgam or composite resin. Both are safe to use and effective.
The difference is the cosmetic result.
Amalgam is a traditional metal filling that appears silver or gray against the white of your tooth. Composite resin fillings, in comparison, can be created to match the shade of your natural tooth.
Composite resin can also be used in a process called bonding. Your dentist will apply the material in a putty-like state to the surface of your tooth to give it the perfect shape. The material hardens, and then your dentist trims and polishes it further to blend it in well.
Your first step toward a nicer looking smile is contacting our office to schedule a consultation. Your dentist will listen to your concerns and design a personal treatment plan!
