A cosmetic dental treatment can transform more than your smile; it can transform your emotional well being and general attitude towards life. The appearance of our smiles is important in our modern society. Straight, healthy-looking, white teeth convey youthfulness and vigor to those around us. Fortunately, those with imperfect smiles have abundant treatment options at our practice. Some of our most popular cosmetic treatments are white restorations, porcelain veneers and teeth whitening.
We tend to think of fillings or dental crowns as only having value as restorations, but they have cosmetic appeal as well. White restorations can blend in seamlessly with natural tooth structure. For small areas of damage or decay, a filling is ideal for strengthening the tooth and protecting it. In the past, fillings were made from amalgam – a silver colored restoration that looks very noticeable. Today, however, composite resin is a durable and natural looking alternative to metal fillings. Composite resin is a tooth-colored compound made from glass and plastic. This material, in addition to filling cavities, can be used in bonding treatments. Bonding can conceal chips and stains on teeth.
Dental Crowns are wonderful ways to enhance the appearance of teeth and protect their structure from future damage. These restorations can improve the appearance of teeth by rebuilding them to their rightful shape, conceal cracks and jagged edges and hide discolorations. Since dental crowns can be made from porcelain, they closely resemble healthy and vibrant biological teeth.
Porcelain veneers can transform the way a person’s smile appears. Patients in need of a total smile makeover might want to consider porcelain veneers as a treatment option. These wafer-thin cosmetic enhancements are bonded over the outside of teeth to hide imperfections like chips, cracks, stains, gaps, and misshapen edges. A series of veneers can transform a crooked, imbalanced smile into a straight, uniform one.
Professional teeth whitening treatments produce incredibly effective results that last. In fact, professional whitening can lighten your teeth up to about eight shades. When you receive whitening treatments from our team at Plantation Palms Dental, you will enjoy effective treatments that are safe for tooth structure. We only utilize quality-tested, prescription-strength whitening formulas. This cosmetic dental service can enhance a patient’s appearance by making their teeth appear healthier and look whiter.
