Veneers cover the entire front surface of your teeth, effectively changing their shape, size, and color. This gives them the unique ability to make multiple corrections all at once, which is good news for anyone who was worried about having to schedule a number of different cosmetic procedures. Many celebrities use dental veneers to create their camera-ready smiles, and now you can get the same kind of results in just two appointments at a reasonable price.
While you might already know somebody who needed a crown to fix a broken tooth, you may not have realized that it’s possible to get a crown for purely cosmetic reasons. Because modern crowns are made out of porcelain, they can be shaded and shaped to resemble a real tooth as closely as possible. They might be recommended to hide an irregularly shaped tooth or enamel discoloration that doesn’t respond to traditional whitening treatments.
Veneers and crowns both take at least two appointments to place; if you’re looking to make a minor change, cosmetic bonding will get you faster results. Composite resin that has been shaded according to the color of your tooth will be applied to the enamel and carefully sculpted over dark spots, chips, and other problem areas. This is often an ideal way to address smaller cosmetic flaws since the procedure is painless, can be completed in an hour, and is highly cost-effective compared to other treatments.
Even brushing regularly isn’t always enough to maintain a bright, white smile. To get rid of tooth stains, you’ll need professional whitening gel that can penetrate the enamel and break up the particles at the source. Our practice uses Pola Gel, which contains ingredients stronger than what you could find at the drug store. In just one treatment, you can dramatically transform your smile and bring back much of the whiteness that has been lost over the years.
What impact are your gums having on your smile? An uneven gum line or an excessive amount of tissue could end up making your teeth look smaller than they should. Gum recontouring treatment can restore balance to your grin by getting rid of the unneeded, overgrown tissue. A similar procedure called crown lengthening is sometimes used to expose more of the natural tooth so that a crown or another type of restoration can be placed.
