Do you have discolored, cracked or misshapen teeth that you would like to have corrected? You can improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry. There are so many ways your dentist can help you to achieve a bright, beautiful smile!
Fillings – Did you know fillings are used for more than just filling cavities? Fillings are also used to repair cracked or damaged teeth. The filling material is made of composite resin that is tooth-colored, making the repairs look natural. Fillings are an option for your damaged teeth and can last for many years.
Crowns – When a tooth is severely damaged and cannot be fixed with fillings, a crown can be used to be placed over the tooth. This crown can save the tooth from further damage by acting as a protective barrier to keep the tooth from worsening. A crown is molded to fit over your existing tooth. While the mold is being made, you will be given a temporary crown. Once the permanent crown is placed, you will be able to have a protected tooth for years to come!
Veneers – For teeth that are discolored or misshapen, veneers are a great option for improving the overall appearance of your smile. A veneer is a thin porcelain sheet that is adhered to the front of the tooth. The color of this porcelain is made to match the surrounding teeth and will blend in well with your smile. Veneers involve a two-step process. During the first appointment, the existing tooth may need to be buffed or shaped and an impression will be taken for the veneer. The veneer will be color-matched to the rest of your teeth. At your second appointment, the veneer is attached to your existing tooth. The veneers are made to last for years and will help to improve the overall look of your teeth.
