Q: What type of cosmetic dentistry options are there?
A: Your smile can be the most eye-catching feature of your face – either in a good way or a bad way! Stained, chipped or misshapen teeth can now be improved in a number of ways. Some of the choices are:
- Tooth Whitening brightens teeth that are discolored or stained. There are a number of methods used for bleaching. We use trays and professional-strength bleaching gel for effectiveness both for current usage and for touch-ups in the future.
- Bonding can improve the appearance of chipped, cracked or stained teeth and can close spaces between teeth. Tooth-colored materials are applied or bonded to the tooth surface.
- Veneers are thin custom-made shells designed to cover the front surfaces of teeth. As long as the back surfaces are not cracked, decayed or have worn-out fillings, veneers are a good option.
- Crowns are tooth-colored restorations that restore the front, side and back surfaces of teeth. They can also provide protection for teeth that have become weakened due to large fillings, fractures and decay.
Ask your dentist about which option would be best for you. You can have the smile you’ve always wanted!
