Cosmetic Dentist Mt Airy, NC
How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Transform Your Smile
Cosmetic dentistry primarily focuses on the aesthetics of your smile rather than the health and function of your teeth and gums. It gives patients the smiles they’ve been looking for, from whitening to recontouring to replacing missing teeth. When you are looking to change the appearance of your smile, whether minor or drastic, consider cosmetic dentistry from L. Dean Simmons DDS in Mt Airy, NC!
From more conservative treatments to more aggressive procedures, cosmetic treatments can offer anyone a more attractive smile. Advancements in dental technology have also created more natural, tooth-like options and materials then ever before, so no one will ever be able to tell that you have received restorative dental work.
Brighten Your Smile With Teeth Whitening
Brushing and flossing your teeth every day, along with regular in-office cleanings, can keep your teeth clean and healthy. But if you are dealing with stubborn stains you may need teeth whitening to remove them and to make your smile brighter. Professional whitening by your dentist can make your teeth whiter faster than over-the-counter treatments.
Tooth Colored Dental Fillings
If you require dental fillings and dread how visible traditional fillings can be in their grayish silver, our dentists can help. Using a tooth-colored composite your dentist can fill in your teeth after treating them for cavities. These types of fillings will not only blend in with the rest of your smile but are also very convenient in that several can be done in one visit.
Repair and Restore With Crowns
Employing the same materials as with tooth-colored fillings, your dentist can repair minor chips and cracks on your teeth. For more severe damage, or for restoring a tooth after it has undergone a procedure such as a root canal, your dentist may then suggest a crown. Crowns can give your tooth a natural look and also protect it from further injury, as well as restore its usefulness.
Missing teeth can be replaced by your dentist using either a dental implant or a dental bridge. A number of factors will help you and your doctor determine the best course for restoring your smile.
Veneers, like crowns and bonding, can be used to repair teeth and to correct a variety of smile imperfections. But they are commonly used as a set to completely renovate your smile. Combinations of these treatments are used to give you the perfect smile you deserve.
