If you’re mostly happy with your smile but you feel it could really use some help in the vibrancy department, we invite you to come on in. Depending on the problem at hand, we will provide you with cosmetic dentistry options or other solutions that will nudge your smile away from its dim appearance and transform it into a glowing feature. Curious about what all of these options might entail? Let’s begin breaking down possible paths with the two general approaches to improving your smile shade.
Seek Cosmetic Care
First, we might suggest cosmetic dentistry. This means we will provide you with a treatment or multiple treatments that will either remove the stains that currently exist on your teeth or that we will cover them up (while ensuring a lifelike finish). To erase stains, we typically suggest teeth whitening. For severe staining or to cover up blemishes for which whitening proves insufficient, we often turn to dental bonding or porcelain veneers. Scheduling a time to go over these details with us in person is a solid first step.
Replace Old Dental Restorations
Whether you need new restorations to address an issue like decay, if you have old metal fillings or crowns that are damaging the brilliance of your smile, or if your once white dental work has become yellowed, we are here to help. Metal can cause teeth to look gray, while old work can simply look dingy. We may skip the cosmetic dentistry and simply replace your work with lifelike options, such as tooth-colored fillings or porcelain crowns.
