Cosmetic Dentistry Overview for a Bright New Smile

By SEO Admin on March 25, 2013

Having an attractive smile makes a big difference at work and in social life. Stained, missing or damaged teeth can put people off every time you smile. Fortunately, modern cosmetic dentistry can take care of these issues quickly with veneers, porcelain dental crowns and bridges and tooth-colored fillings. Below is more information about the types of cosmetic offerings available at your our local Blakeney South Charlotte dental office.

Dental Implants
These artificial teeth are anchored in the jawbone for a permanent replacement for damaged or missing teeth. Implants look and work like regular teeth and respond to a healthy dental regimen.

Dental Bonding
Bonding is akin to separately sculpting teeth with a material that perfectly imitates natural enamel. The procedure is a fast, cheap and comfortable way to fix cosmetic dental issues, such as stains, breaks and decay.

Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening performed by dentists specializing in cosmetic dentistry is faster and more effective than over-the-counter whitening products. In just a few sessions, our Charlotte cosmetic dentist can give patients the same bright white smile enjoyed by celebrities.

Porcelain Crowns
Caps and crowns are durable, long-lasting solutions to tooth decay and breakage. Nobody will notice that crowns are present thanks to porcelain's ability to match the shade of the teeth it is applied beside. Some patients opt to replace existing metal crowns with porcelain crowns for the visual improvement.

Tooth-Colored Fillings
Metal fillings are unsightly and have been linked to various health problems. With tooth-colored composite fillings, patients can count on having a natural-looking white smile. The durability of composites prevents excessive wear to the filling or other teeth.

Porcelain Veneers
Ultra-thin shells that cover the teeth, veneers can also be used to extend short teeth, conceal gaps and hide cracks, chips and other damage.
