Have you thought about upgrading your smile? Cosmetic dentistry offers many exciting possibilities.
The quickest and least invasive procedure is light teeth whitening. The results are dramatic and the side effects are minimal.
If your teeth are slightly crooked, but require no orthodontic work, porcelain veneers could be the answer. Porcelain teeth veneers are translucent, wafer-thin covers that are permanently attached to the front of teeth, correcting chips and stains. Prepless veneers do not require the removal of tooth structure.
If your teeth are more than slightly crooked, it’s not too late for braces. Patients of all ages are undergoing orthodontic treatment and achieving fantastic results. The newest clear braces are less noticeable, more comfortable and bring teeth into alignment much faster than old-school metal braces.
Has gum recession caused the metal base of an old crown to be visible? Soft tissue grafts and crown replacement can correct this problem.
Are you missing one or more teeth? One of the best tooth replacement options is a dental implant. A dental implant consists of a titanium post surgically inserted into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. The post integrates with the bone to provide a stable foundation for the replacement tooth.
