Modern dentistry offers techniques, technology and materials that can create a flattering, more-youthful smile. The following descriptions explain some of the options available.
• Porcelain Veneers – Because the top, front teeth are prominent in a smile, porcelain veneers are often applied to the top ones most visible when you smile naturally. Veneers are shell-like coverings adhered to reshape teeth and blend attractively with adjacent teeth. They provide a highly-natural look and feel, even reflecting light as natural teeth.
• Bonding – Advancements in bonding materials offer an exceptional way to reshape existing teeth. Most-often applied in one appointment, this process is normally less involved than a filling. Bonding is also excellent for repairing a chipped tooth or smoothing ridges or indentions.
• Teeth Whitening – Most teeth, even those deeply stained, respond beautifully to professional versions of tooth whitening. Dental offices provide systems that are longer lasting than kits sold in stores and give dramatic results. Those with receded gums may experience some tingling, but no discomfort.
• Invisalign – Straight teeth give a proper balance to your smile. If you’ve avoided braces to correct crowded or misaligned teeth, Invisalign is your answer! This clear mold moves teeth at a faster pace than traditional braces and is removable for eating or brushing, all without uncomfortable and unsightly braces or wires!
Most procedures are performed with total patient comfort, minimal time in treatment and (other than Invisalign) in only one or two appointments. Begin the New Year with a smile that shaves years off your actual age and can be a tremendous confidence booster!
