In your daily life, your smile often is the first thing people notice. They notice whether you are smiling or not, and if you do choose to smile, they often closely examine your smile’s appearance. This is true whether you are greeting new people at a party, talking to a new client or leading a presentation. If you are feeling self-conscious about your smile, cosmetic dentistry is your key to having pearly whites that will stand out for all of the right reasons.
Perhaps your teeth have yellowed or fallen victim to staining over the years. This is normal, especially for those who enjoy foods such as coffee, tea, cola or candies. Through cosmetic dentistry, however, you can whiten your teeth in just an hour with the help of the Zoom! chairside whitening system. This bleaching process is effective for whitening your teeth about eight shades on average, right in your dentist office. It’s an ideal whitening solution for those who need quick results before a big event, such as a wedding or photo day.
If your teeth feature amalgam fillings—more commonly known as silver fillings—then you may elect to replace them with tooth-colored restorations as well. These restorations not only look like your natural teeth but also bond to each tooth to support the tooth structure. This keeps the tooth from breaking and guards it against major temperature changes, which can cause sensitivity and even cracks.
Porcelain crowns—or caps that are shaped like teeth—are helpful for restoring broken teeth, protecting weak teeth or covering teeth that are severely discolored. Porcelain veneers likewise help to improve the appearance of the front teeth; they are slender shells that go over irregularly shaped, broken, chipped or discolored teeth.
In addition, dental implants often are the best option for replacing missing teeth. An implant is a titanium screw that is placed in the jawbone and is capped with a dental crown.
Your smile frequently leaves either a positive or a negative impression on others. Get in touch with us today to find out how we can transform your unique smile into a captivating one that gives you self-confidence in every situation.
