Whiten Your Teeth
Are you embarrassed or tired of looking at in the mirror? Certain foods and beverages can make our smiles less than pearly white, such as coffee or red wine. While it can be hard to kick the caffeine addiction, you should know that these types of beverages create tooth enamel stains. Other habits, such as smoking, can discolor natural tooth enamel and damage gums.
If you haven’t achieved the results you want with over-the-counter toothpastes, gels, and light applicators, you may want to consult with our experienced cosmetic dentist.
A professional teeth whitening treatment can help you see an immediate improvement in the whiteness of your teeth. Dentists use thicker peroxide gels, potassium nitrate, and fluoride desensitizers to help control gum and tooth sensitivity.
If your teeth are naturally discolored, you may want to consider bonding resins and porcelain veneers. In addition to correcting a variety of dental conditions, they can also be matched to the color of your surrounding teeth for a whiter smile.
A More Natural Look
If you need a cavity filled your two options are metal and white fillings. Metal fillings are safe but they’re far more noticeable than white fillings. Fortunately, white fillings can help maintain a more natural color on your teeth so no one has to know you had cavities filled.
Many of our patients appreciate having the option for white fillings for permanent adult teeth, especially when they have multiple cavities filled at once. This allows them to avoid having a mouth full of metal. Our dentists generally recommend white fillings for these reasons.
Fill in Your Smile
If you are missing teeth, don’t feel bad about it. It’s not uncommon for patients to be missing teeth from playing contact sports or from not being able to pay for dental treatment. You may benefit from a dental bridge or dental implant procedure.
Dental bridges allow you to anchor a false tooth between two healthy strong teeth. A dental implant screws into your jaw and is capped with a dental crown for the appearance and function of a natural tooth.
We recommend you speak with one of our dentists to go over your options if you would like to pursue dental treatment for missing teeth, filling a cavity(s), whitening your teeth, or another cosmetic dental option.
