One of the first ways our cosmetic dentist can help enhance your smile is by helping you hide any stains or discoloration. Stains and discoloration are a common side effect of eating or drinking foods that stains as well as smoking cigarettes or chewing tobacco. Certain medications can also cause severe tooth staining. Fortunately, B & D Dental Excellence offers a few different options that can help you whiten your teeth.
Your first option is professional teeth whitening. Professional teeth whitening can remove years of stains in just one treatment or a take-home treatment. The only downside of professional whitening is that you will have to continue to get additional treatments about every year to maintain your teeth’s new hue.
Porcelain veneers are another amazing option to whiten your smile. This involves placing thin porcelain shells to cover the front of your teeth. We can color the porcelain to your desired shade. The best benefit of porcelain veneers is that they do not stain. When you opt for veneers, you will never have to worry about whitening your teeth or avoiding foods and drinks that stain. As a bonus, porcelain veneers can also address other aesthetic concerns of your teeth like cracks, chips, crookedness, gaps, and even the shape or size of your teeth.
Regardless of which treatment you choose, whitening your teeth can help your teeth look healthier, make you look younger, and overall help you feel your best!
Hide Cracks and Chips
Another dental concern we can assist with cosmetic dentistry is hiding cracks or chips in your teeth. Cracks or chips can draw unwanted attention, make you feel self-conscious, and even lead to serious dental problems. Our West Nyack cosmetic dentist can use porcelain veneers or dental crowns to hide cracks or chips in your teeth. These methods can also help restore strength to your teeth and protect them from further damage.
This will help you enjoy a healthier and better-looking smile!
Reshape and Resize Your Teeth
One of the keys to making your smile more attractive is by altering the shape and size of your teeth so they look more symmetrical and that their size and shape complements the rest of your face. We can use dental bonding or porcelain veneers to reshape or resize your teeth.
If your teeth have significant damage or are severely worn, we will likely recommend dental crowns to restore their complete shape.
Straighten Your Teeth
Another way we can help you look and feel your best is by straightening your teeth. Straighter teeth look more attractive and if they’re straightened with orthodontics, it can lead to a healthier smile! There are two routes we can take to straighten your teeth. The first one is Invisalign. Invisalign will gradually move your teeth into their ideal position over the course of six months to two years. The aligners are fully removable so you can eat and brush your teeth without any difficulty. They’re also nearly invisible so you don’t have to worry about feeling embarrassed about wearing braces.
The other route we can take is porcelain veneers. This option is only ideal for patients who don’t suffer from any bite problems and only have minor aesthetic issues with their teeth. We can shape the veneers to cover gaps or minor crookedness on your teeth. Although this doesn’t straighten your teeth, it will make them appear straighter in only two appointments!
Reshape Your Gum Line
We can also beautify your smile by reshaping the gum line. When it’s uneven or too gummy, it can affect the appearance of your smile. With gum recontouring, we can help your gum line look symmetrical and more attractive.
We recommend this treatment for gummy smiles!
Replace Missing Teeth
If you have missing teeth it’s not only impacting the appearance of your smile, but also the functionality. With tooth replacement options like dental implants, dental bridges, dentures, and dental crowns, we can replace your missing teeth. We can even design your replacement teeth to look similar to the teeth of your youth.
Replacing your missing teeth is essential for helping you look and feel your best.
Make Your Teeth Look More Natural
The last way we can help you look and feel your best with help from our West Nyack cosmetic dentist is by replacing your metal fillings or dental crowns and replacing them with white fillings and porcelain dental crowns. This will help your smile look more natural and is also more beneficial for your teeth.
In addition, it can prevent you from potential exposure to mercury in the amalgam fillings.
