If you’re looking for a way to hide multiple imperfections in your teeth at a time, you’ll find porcelain veneers to be incredibly effective. These ultra-thin sheaths of ceramic are designed to mimic natural tooth enamel. Not only can they be customized to fit over your teeth exactly, but their smooth properties make them less susceptible to staining than natural enamel. This treatment is ideal for those looking to transform their smile with a single procedure in just two appointments.
In order to ensure that your smile actually looks natural by the end of treatment, Dr. Tolliver makes sure to use dental materials that match tooth enamel in every way possible. That’s why we use tooth-colored, metal-free restorations, whether you’re getting porcelain veneers or dental crowns placed. Silver can easily reflect light, making your restorations stand out in your smile. True cosmetic dentistry blends in so well that no one around you can tell the difference.
Many cosmetic imperfections can be very minor in nature. However, that doesn’t stop them from sticking out in your smile. In the event that you only have minor imperfections, such as cracks, chips, gaps, or stains that are not treatable with whitening, direct bonding offers an effective solution. By mixing composite resin into a shade that matches your existing teeth, we can easily hide imperfections in an incredibly affordable way.
Teeth can become yellow over time, even if you practice daily oral care. This is because diet can also have a major influence on the appearance of your teeth. With Zoom! Whitening’s own take-home tray system, you can easily whiten teeth on the go using professional-grade bleaching ingredients. These trays are only available from a dentist and ideal if you want to make your smile multiple shades brighter in less time overall.
If the issue you’re having is in fact not with your teeth but with your gums, gum recontouring is perfect for making your teeth more visible. Many people note that they have a “gummy” smile, which really means that excessive gum tissue is covering their tooth enamel. Our dental office utilizes a soft tissue laser to comfortably and carefully remove this tissue with ease. The technology ensures that your next cosmetic treatment is a virtually painless experience.
With so many treatments to choose from, it can be tough to know which one is right for you. If cosmetic dentistry is giving you decision paralysis, you’ll want to try our digital imaging virtual smile design software! This treatment is designed to simulate what your smile will look like following a specific treatment. All we need from you is a photo and a few minutes of your time, and we can help you set expectations for your upcoming cosmetic treatment.
There are many ways to effectively address imperfections in your smile. Whether you need to remove stains from the surface of your teeth, modify your gum tissue, or place multiple crowns and porcelain veneers, the best way to determine all of your needs is to pursue a smile makeover. During your complimentary consultation, Dr. Tolliver will walk you through all of your treatment options and help you plan the ones that would work best for you.
