Summertime is filled with family picnics, days at the beach, graduations, and celebrations. We have you covered with a variety of cosmetic dentistry options to help you achieve the perfect smile you have dreamed of before the summer is over.
Your teeth do not require anything dramatic to become stained or slightly discolored. Consuming certain foods and dark colored beverages, including coffee, tea, wine, and soda, can exacerbate the staining of your teeth. Even the smallest discoloration can throw a perfect smile slightly off. Luckily, tooth whitening is a simple but effective cosmetic dental procedure.
Dental Bonding And Contouring
If color is not your issue, but you have a slight imperfection such as a chipped, crooked, or slightly misshapen tooth, we may recommend a dental bonding and or contouring procedure. Tooth contouring involves gently removing a small amount of tooth enamel in order to change the size and shape of an imperfect tooth.
Dental bonding involves using a tooth colored composite resin material to cover and reshape an imperfect tooth. The resin is applied to the tooth, molded into the ideal shape, and then the material is hardened under a curing light.
Porcelain veneers are ultra thin shells which are bonded to the front of teeth. This procedure is the ideal choice for improving the appearance of the front teeth. Porcelain veneers are placed to mask discolorations, to brighten teeth, and to improve a smile. Highly resistant to permanent staining from coffee, tea, or even cigarette smoking, the wafer thin porcelain veneers can achieve a tenacious bond to the tooth, resulting in an esthetically pleasing naturalness that is unsurpassed by other restorative options.
