Procedures You May Consider:
Cosmetic Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening and teeth bleaching refer to the same thing. Teeth whitening can be used to brighten your natural teeth, making them look more white and youthful. This easy procedure can be done in the dental office or at home, depending on your provider. Consider what you have in your mouth before you try teeth bleaching since crowns, veneers, and other artificial teeth won’t whiten like your real teeth.
Cosmetic Dental Veneers
Veneers are thin discs made of porcelain that can be used to cover many dental issues. They are custom-fit to your mouth and bonded to the front edge of a tooth that is dulling or distracting from your smile. A veneer can be used to treat cosmetic issues like slightly crooked teeth, discolored teeth, or to shrink the space between two teeth.
Cosmetic Dental Crowns
Crowns are also custom-made to fit over your tooth after it has been shaved down. Unlike veneers, crowns fit over the entire tooth, but they are usually made out of acrylic or porcelain, like veneers. Crowns can be used to fix teeth that are chipped or broken. If you have had serious dental work, such as a root canal, a crown may be recommended to strengthen the weakened tooth.
Cosmetic Teeth Shaping
We can reshape a problematic tooth by removing some of the enamel through filing and buffing. If you have a tooth that sits a little higher than the others or is oddly shaped, we can easily fix it through filing.
We can help provide more information about your options after we have seen your teeth during a consultation. Give us a call at (610) 861-0190 to learn more about cosmetic dentistry today!
