The beauty of your smile can be affected by many different factors. Injuries, genetics, dental procedures, and other issues can wreak havoc on your teeth and lead to reduced confidence and an increased risk of developing oral health problems. To restore the beauty as well as the function of your smile, contact a dentist near you at Dentist Pro.
Many patients give over-the-counter teeth whitening products a try before reaching out to our dental office and speaking with a professional. Over-the-counter products are generic, so they may not work for every individual’s teeth and could damage the enamel. Another setback is that results can take several weeks or months to become noticeable.
Teeth whitening done by professionals is an entirely different story. The results are immediate, with patients seeing a dramatic improvement in the look of their smiles in less than two hours. The bleach solution we use is formulated for your teeth and gentle on the enamel, eliminating the risk of harming your teeth. With proper maintenance, the results of whitening in our office could last for a long time.
Dental veneers are a way for patients to eliminate flaws that may be present on teeth. They’re thin shells that are bonded onto the visible front portion of the teeth. While they may not be as functional as dental crowns, they are an excellent solution for patients with cracks, chips, or gaps in their teeth.
Veneers are typically made of either porcelain or composite resin. Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant and have a pearlescent shine that blends in well with your natural teeth. Composite veneers are a more affordable option compared to porcelain veneers. While they aren’t as strong as porcelain veneers, they can be repaired easily if they become worn down or chipped. Both porcelain and composite resin veneers are great options for restoring your smile.
A crown is a cap that replaces the entire upper portion of the tooth. A crown may sometimes extend to the root surface of the tooth, which can be exposed if a gum recession occurs. Crowns are recommended when teeth have cosmetic problems, or their structure has been compromised.
Placing a dental crown is a relatively simple process. The tooth will be shaven down and prepared for the application of the crown. Once the enamel has been removed, your dentist will take an impression and use it to craft a permanent crown. When the crown is ready, it will be fitted and bonded to the tooth once the dentist ensures that it fits properly.
Dental implants are a permanent solution for tooth loss in dental patients. They’re convenient and do not require much additional care. You won’t need to remove them before sleeping or eating, enabling you to continue your life with as little changes to your routine as possible.
The implantation process can take several weeks or months to complete. First, your dentist will surgically insert a titanium post into the jawbone. Once the bone tissues have healed, and the post has fused to the jawbone, an abutment will be attached that allows your dentist to connect a crown, bridge, or dentures to the post.
Orthodontic treatment can be completed in our office to correct issues with tilted or crooked teeth. Your dentist will perform a thorough exam to determine the extent of your orthodontic problems before recommending treatment. Treatment time can vary significantly depending on the specifics of your orthodontic issues, with the average time being a year.
