There's no reason to live with a smile you dislike when a cosmetic dentistry procedure can provide an impressive transformation. Your Easton, MD, dentist Dr. Kristine Houck Morris offers several procedures that can help you feel more confident about your smile.
No matter how well you care for your smile, your teeth may become duller over the years. The problem can occur due to aging or stains caused by foods, beverages, or smoking. Teeth whitening removes stains by breaking apart the pigments that cause them with safe, effective hydrogen peroxide gel. Professional whitening only takes about an hour in your Easton dentist's office and can lighten your smile up to eight shades.
Cosmetic fillings offer a more attractive alternative to silver amalgam fillings. The fillings are made of composite resin, a substance that consists of acrylic resin strengthened with powdered glass. Cosmetic fillings are tinted to match common tooth shades and virtually disappear once they're added to your teeth. In addition to their cosmetic benefits, the fillings also reduce cracking, a problem that can eventually occur with amalgam fillings, and help keep your teeth strong.
Veneers keep minor imperfections in your tooth enamel out of sight. The thin porcelain shells are attached to the fronts of your teeth with dental cement and are available in many shades of white. Veneers not only cover cracks and chips but also conceal uneven surfaces, lengthen teeth, change their shape, hide slight gaps between your teeth and offer a stain-resistant whitening alternative.
Tooth restoration options
Replacing a missing tooth improves your appearance, keeps other teeth from shifting and makes biting and chewing much easier. Bridges are a good choice if you've lost a single tooth or even a few adjacent teeth, while dentures offer an excellent choice if you've lost all of your upper and lower teeth. Dental implants, the newest restoration method, are a good option no matter how many teeth are missing. Implants bond to your jawbone and are connected to dental crowns. In addition to single implants, you can opt for implant-supported bridges or dentures.
