If you have multiple imperfections that keep you from showing off your pearly whites, you might consider veneers. These are thin, shell coverings that fit snugly over the front surfaces of your teeth to mask any flaws. Customized to change the size, shape, and color of your teeth, they’re semi-permanent because of the tooth enamel that must be removed. With proper care, however, they can last a decade or longer, and they only require two to three dental appointments to complete.
Traditional amalgam was once the only way to address severely decayed or damaged teeth. However, now that metal-free crowns exist, we can create a more beautiful and natural look while also delivering optimal protection and stability for the vulnerable underlying structure. Using metal-free materials makes it possible for us to treat patients who may have allergies or sensitivities to metal, making it a viable option for anyone in need.
Similar to veneers is cosmetic bonding. Because it uses composite resin, it is not permanent and is a less invasive process. Instead of having customized restorations created by lab technicians, we can simply use a composite resin that is matched to your normal tooth color and apply it directly onto the tooth enamel. After sculpting it into place, a curing light will harden the resin and create a seamless appearance.
When stains become a bothersome reality, you might think turning to one of the store-bought kits will be enough to whiten your smile. While they can eliminate some minor surface stains, you run the risk of damaging your teeth. Instead, you can pursue in-office or at-home whitening kits through our dental office. No matter which option you choose, you can trust that your teeth will remain safe, and you’ll be pleased with the results you’ll see in just one hour or two weeks.
FULL MOUTH RECONSTRUCTION
Smiles that are cracked, chipped, and those without a full set of teeth can leave patients feeling vulnerable and uncertain. But our team is here to deliver trusted and timely care using full mouth reconstruction. We will formulate a personalized treatment plan that combines multiple services that address various issues within the smile, working toward a transformational aesthetic that allows you to feel more confident than ever before.
Cosmetic imperfections can be a nuisance. However, they don’t have to remain that way when Dr. Walker offers smile makeovers. Similar to full mouth reconstruction, a smile makeover is a custom treatment plan that combines several cosmetic solutions that are designed to improve and enhance your smile by eliminating flaws and restoring confidence.
