Are You a Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry treatments are elective procedures designed to mask blemishes and redesign your smile. If you are embarrassed by any of the following problems, one of our cosmetic treatments may be the solution:
- External stains
- Tetracycline stains or other internal discoloration
- Unusually shaped or sized teeth
- Minor misalignment or slight gaps between teeth
- Dental erosion
- Small chips or cracks
Porcelain veneers are thin layers of porcelain that are laboratory fabricated and permanently bonded to the front of teeth. Once in place, veneers can improve the appearance of broken, crooked, misshapen, or discolored teeth. In most cases, minimal tooth preparation is necessary to give you the smile of your dreams. At the same time, modern porcelain will provide a remarkably realistic color and a slight twinkle under light, just like tooth enamel. With veneers, your smile could look shades brighter and years younger.
Bonding and Contouring
Bonding is a great way to fix teeth that are cracked, chipped, misshapen, or unusually short. It is also an effective option to close small spaces between the teeth. In this procedure, naturally colored composite is applied to the tooth’s surface. Unlike crowns and veneers, this procedure is done directly in the mouth, giving you instant results and a beautiful smile. Alternatively, Dr. Nack may recommend contouring, during which he will reshape your teeth, removing a minor amount of tissue, if necessary. He may also perform gum contouring, typically using the Picasso® laser to trim and reshape your gum line. With the use of advanced technology, tooth and gum contouring involves virtually no discomfort or side effects.
KöR® Deep BleachingTM
We are proud to offer KöR Deep BleachingTM, the most advanced method of teeth whitening on the market today. This treatment combines in-office and take-home techniques. Thanks to this comprehensive approach, it typically reduces dental stains by 6 to 10 shades. In some cases, patients enjoy smiles that are more than 10 shades lighter. Remarkably, this advanced treatment can even reduce internal tetracycline stains, which no other whitening method can remove. With regular touch-ups, KöR results are permanent, even when you enjoy things like red wine or coffee on a regular basis. This treatment is suitable for most patients, including teens as young as 14 and those who ordinarily suffer from dental sensitivity.
Crowns are laboratory fabricated restorations used to fix teeth that no longer can be restored with a simple filling. In many cases, teeth with old fillings become weak and susceptible to recurring decay or fracture. A crown can restore these teeth to a normal, healthy appearance. In order to place the restoration, Dr. Nack will prepare the tooth just enough to provide room for the crown. Then he will take impressions and produce a model for the lab. With his skill, your crown should feel natural and blend in beautifully with your other teeth. Crowns come in various types: full zirconia, zirconia with porcelain, and all-ceramic. All of these options are metal free and have a beautiful appearance. Depending on the crown’s location in your mouth, along with you, Dr. Nack will choose the most appropriate option for the most long-lasting and beautiful result.
The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic dentistry can greatly improve the look of your smile. You may not be aware, however, of how far-reaching its effects truly are. In fact, changes to your smile can boost your overall appearance. You could even seem more approachable and friendly. Furthermore, you will enjoy a boost of self-confidence, making it easier to meet new people, speak in public, and share your smile with those you love.
