The field of dentistry has come a long way in the past few decades. Cosmetic issues that were once something you had to deal with are now easily fixable. Things like minor chips, crooked teeth, and even tooth size can be corrected with cosmetic dentistry.
At City of Oaks Dental, cosmetic dentistry services are available to get rid of those problems that once made you self-conscious about sharing your smile with the world. Dr. Throop and staff will work with you to customize a plan that will give you a grin you want to show off!
Whether an accident or trauma has caused a chip or break in your tooth or you’ve had that same annoying problem for years, you aren’t stuck with it. City of Oaks Dental services include cosmetic procedures to get your smile camera-ready.
Dr. Throop can help you decide if any of these cosmetic procedures are right for you:
One of the most popular types of cosmetic dentistry, veneers are a technique used by dentists to cover up imperfections in a tooth. These are a simple and efficient method that takes care of a lot of flaws.
If you want to change the size of your tooth, a porcelain veneer could be the answer. For those who want to adjust the coloring or shade of a tooth or a few teeth without a whitening treatment, veneers do the job. These dental porcelain laminates can fill in gaps between teeth, too! They’re almost a magic fix for teeth concerns.
Veneers are made of porcelain or composite. They are a super-thin shell that is custom-designed for your teeth so it blends in with the rest of your smile. The shell layer is bonded to your tooth in a way that doesn’t damage the natural enamel already there.
Not everyone is a candidate for the veneer process, though. X-rays and an evaluation of the current health of your teeth will determine whether your current enamel is strong enough to withstand the bonding stage.
Your teeth may have become discolored naturally due to hereditary conditions, or they may have changed color over time because of your habits. Whatever the reason, stained and discolored teeth cause a lot of people to feel self-conscious about their smile.
Professional whitening services at City of Oaks Dental can help you get your dazzling smile back. Our treatments use the highest-grade bleaching agents for safe and effective whitening with fast results. It’s so easy, you can go straight back to your day right after your appointment!
When a tooth is damaged or weak and becomes a danger to the rest of your smile, a crown can strengthen it. Crowns, also called “caps,” are made of metal, porcelain, ceramin, or resin. They are cemented over the existing tooth once it is prepared, thus covering the weak tooth with a stronger false one.
Crowns can be slightly more invasive than the other cosmetic treatments, but they can last anywhere from five to fifteen years.
You don’t have to hide your smile or pay an arm and a leg to fix it. At City of Oaks Dental, we offer affordable, effective cosmetic dentistry treatments to give you the smile you deserve.
