Along with good eye contact and body language, your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you. If your smile has been afflicted with one or more visual imperfections, it might leave you wanting to explore your cosmetic dental treatments at Dakota Ridge Dental.
The specific problem you need addressed will determine the cosmetic dental methods Dr. Stephanie S. Karlin & Justin S. Petracek recommends.
For a smile suffering from significant staining problems, they can perform a dental bleaching treatment. Then they can help you identify the initial cause of the stains and give you tips for making alternative choices. You might also want to try maintaining your while smile by using whitening toothpaste or whitening strips after the treatment.
Teeth suffering from multiple cosmetic imperfections often benefit from dental veneers. The porcelain veneers are meticulously crafted at our state-of-the art dental lab to fit over the faces of the teeth in your smile. Once they are installed, they will look exactly like natural tooth enamel, only whiter.
The porcelain material the veneers are made from will not be as receptive to stains as natural tooth enamel. This will help you maintain your white smile for many years to come.
Should one of your teeth suffer from large, old fillings or a new area of tooth decay, your dentist might recommend restoring the tooth enamel with a porcelain dental crown. This is essentially a replica of the tooth enamel layer that is created from a ceramic porcelain material. It can be shaded to match the surrounding natural teeth in your smile.
