Cosmetic dentistry can give you the smile of your dreams and restore your self-esteem. The power of an improved smile is unmistakable. It can revitalize your social and professional life while giving you newfound confidence. Our practice offers a number of cosmetic dentistry treatments including professional teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and white restorations.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Sometimes, all a person needs to feel more confident is whiter teeth. Our teeth are porous. Over time, they will become dull and discolored with exposure to stain-causing things like wine and coffee. Normal wear and tear can also make teeth appear dull.
Permanent tooth stains can’t be addressed with over-the-counter products like strips or toothpastes. These products may lighten surface stains, but they can’t penetrate the enamel surface of teeth where permanent stains form. This is why it’s best to receive professional teeth whitening from your dentist. A professional treatment removes deep stains without harming your teeth.
A veneer is a cosmetic enhancement that is used to hide common dental imperfections such as chips, stains, cracks, and misaligned teeth. Veneers are custom made from porcelain. This material produces a very natural and healthy-looking aesthetic.
Veneers are permanently bonded over the front-facing surfaces of teeth. When multiple veneers are placed, a person can achieve the appearance of a flaw-free smile. In fact, porcelain veneers are sometimes referred to as “instant orthodontics” because they can create the illusion of perfectly upright and properly spaced teeth.
Tooth decay and tooth wear can leave our teeth looking ragged and dull. Fortunately, today’s dental work doesn’t have to be obvious. White restorations like composite fillings and porcelain crowns can repair your teeth very discreetly. Tooth-colored restorations make your dental work undetectable.
You don’t have to live with a flawed smile. Our practice makes cosmetic dentistry more accessible to patients in our community. If you have questions about your treatment options, call Tate Family Dentistry to schedule a smile makeover consultation with our experienced dentist.
