Imperfections in your smile such as stained teeth, chipped or cracked teeth, gaps, or severe discoloration from tetracycline can all be fixed by the expert hands of a Cosmetic Dentist. Good dental health is vital to keep your body healthy. Untreated gum disease can cause significant chronic health problems including diabetes, strokes, and heart disease. A beautiful smile can be achieved through cosmetic dentistry, but to keep it that way takes good hygiene and regular visits to your dentist.
Cosmetic Dentistry Incorporates A Variety Of Techniques
If you have chipped or stained teeth, unsightly gaps or discolorations, cosmetic dentistry has the protocols you need to turn your smile into one that dazzles. Porcelain veneers, bonding, and teeth whitening procedures are just a few of the techniques that dentists employ to make your smile one to be proud of. Most cosmetic dental procedures cause little, if any discomfort however if you are one of the many that experience anxiety at the thought of a visit to the dentist, ask about Sedation Dentistry. This field has benefitted strongly from the advent of new anesthesia over the last several years and today patients can simply take a pill to stave off fear and anxiety.
Porcelain veneers are ideal for improving the color, size or shape of teeth. They easily mask stubborn and unsightly tetracycline stains, fill gaps between teeth, and brighten your smile. These stain resistant shells of porcelain are durable and can last for years with the proper care. Unlike crowns or caps, veneers do not require anesthesia in most cases. In preparation to adhere the veneer to your teeth, your dentist will remove a thin layer (often less than 0.5 millimeter) from your teeth. Next an impression will be made of your tooth to guarantee proper fit. Your veneer will be hand crafted in a dental laboratory and when it is ready, it will be bonded in place. From the initial appointment through final bonding, the process will take 1-2 weeks depending on the length of time it takes the laboratory to get your custom veneer to your Hawthorne dental services center.
There are many over-the-counter teeth whitening kits available on the market. Every drug store, big box store, and grocery store has them on their shelves. Unfortunately these expensive over-the-counter products don’t live up to expectation. For the best and most dramatic results, professional teeth whitening done by a dentist is the best solution. ZOOM is known to be one of the most effective whitening procedures available; it combines the application of a whitening gel that is then activated by a laser. In just one office visit, patients see dramatic results often times experiencing shades 6-10 lighter than when they arrived.
The perfect dazzling smile takes a combination of cosmetic and general dentistry. For individuals that experience anxiety at the thought of visiting a dentist, oral sedations are available to help ease you. Good oral hygiene practices, the latest in technology, regular exams and a Hawthorne dental services clinic will give you the smile you have always longed for.
