Your cosmetic dentist has many tools available to enhance your smile while improving your overall dentition allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence, function, and comfort.

A chipped tooth can ruin your smile. A tooth colored composite resin is a plastic based material that your dentist can fashion to repair that enamel chip that will be virtually impossible to detect. Dental bonding can be perfectly matched to your tooth shade, and your cosmetic dentist has spent countless hours learning all the creative techniques that will result in a natural and beautiful dental repair.

Deep dental stain can also occur that does not respond to hygienic cleaning or teeth whiteningWhen spots or streaking make you conscientious about your smile, your dentist can blend away stain with bonding. Gum recession can benefit from dental bonding as well as the part of the tooth normally covered by gum tissue that has worn away can be covered making the tooth appear whole again.

Some cosmetic dental issues are complex and require more extensive correction. One of the least invasive procedures is completed with veneers. Uneven, chipped, or poorly spaced dentition can be treated with these thin, tooth colored shells. Teeth requiring repair are prepared, models are cast, and veneers are fabricated by the dental lab.

Your cosmetic dentist will try in the veneers, and when fit and appearance are perfect, veneers will be permanently cemented in place. Veneers are an appropriate solution for one or multiple teeth.

Dental crowns are used in many dental applications. Broken teeth or teeth ravaged with dental decay can be saved through the use of crowns. They are appropriate as anchors for fixed prostheses, as the final restoration for dental implants and to seal a tooth that has undergone endodontic therapy.

Many dental repairs are completed using porcelain. It is important to note that porcelain is naturally stain resistant, but will not respond to any kind of teeth whitening. Patients considering lightening their teeth shade should do so before undergoing cosmetic repairs so that your dentist can match your porcelain repair to your newly whitened tooth shade.

Caring for veneers, bonding, or crowns does not require anything special … brush and floss every day and visit your dentist every six months for a cleaning and dental exam. You will enjoy your new smile with minimal effort for many years. Contact us at Devine Dentistry to schedule a consult!
