As we go through life, dental issues often arise and take away our confidence to smile. In order to give your best smile, you have to be confident with the appearance of your teeth. Our cosmetic dentist Dr. Kevin Lee can improve the appearance of your teeth to bring confidence back to your smile. Cosmetic dentistry can correct issues such as cracks, stains, chips, gaps, as well as, crooked, misshaped, or broken teeth.
Our teeth are easily stained by dark food and drinks, such as eggplant and coffee. Teeth stains usually appear on the enamel layer of your teeth which cause a less than white appearance. You can regain your dental whiteness with an easy cosmetic dentistry procedure of teeth whitening. This issue is quickly corrected during one office visit but may require a follow-up home treatment. The home treatment will ensure that your teeth stay whiter for longer. Teeth whitening is the easiest cosmetic dentistry procedure that can be offered.
Cosmetic dental bonding is another example of a simple cosmetic dentistry procedure. This procedure can usually be done in one visit and corrects chipped, decayed, broken, or uneven teeth. Dental bonding uses resin material that is used for white fillings to restore chips, cracks, and gaps. Your tooth is kept completely dry during the treatment and the surface is roughened to bond it and the resin. Your dentist then molds the resin with specialized tools to give it the most beautiful appearance. The resin then dries under a special light after a few minutes and then you’re free to share your new beautiful smile.
Porcelain veneers can solve smile imperfections that cannot be correct with dental bonding or teeth whitening. The veneers can correct a crooked smile and provide long lasting teeth whiteness. Before the procedure, your dentist will go over your oral health history and determine if your teeth are healthy enough for veneers. Then your teeth will be prepared by removing small parts of enamel on your teeth to make room for the porcelain veneers. You dentist will then take impressions of your prepared teeth so that porcelain veneers can be made for you. While the veneers are being created, you will have to wear temporary veneers. The porcelain veneers may take a couple of weeks to be completed, but when they are you’ll be excited to spread your smile.
Cosmetic dentistry procedures can give you the confidence back in your smile and allow you to share it with the world.
You deserve to have a smile that you are happy to share.
