Lifetime Dental - Enhance The Aesthetics of Your Smile with Dentistry
A beautiful smile is one that is aesthetically pleasing, but also at prime oral health. While finding the time to care for your smile can be daunting. At Lifetime Dental, we provide cosmetic dental procedures that enhance the look of your smile, in tandem with necessary treatments to restore and sustain your oral health.
When Would You Need Cosmetic Dental Treatment?
If you are unhappy with the look of your smile, cosmetic dental procedures fix imperfections. Common reasons why patients look for enhancement services are staining and yellowing of teeth, as well as chipped and fractured teeth. Discoloration can be caused by common foods, such as wine, soda, and coffee, but can also occur due to deep intrinsic staining caused by a dead nerve or tetracycline staining. Chips and fractures, depending on the severity, could lead to infection within the dentition, and may cause the need for a root canal. Treatment for necessary dental concerns can be augmented by cosmetically appealing materials.
Cosmetic Dental Treatments
If you’re missing teeth due to extraction or trauma, treatment options such as bridges and dental implants replace the missing teeth in your smile. Bridges can be made out of porcelain that looks and feels like natural teeth, capping neighboring teeth to support the pontic that replaces the missing tooth.
Dental implants replace teeth entirely, without the alteration of neighboring healthy teeth to do so. Made out of biocompatible titanium, the implant post integrates with surrounding jaw bone, preventing facial collapse. Dental implants can be topped with various prosthetics, such as porcelain crowns, bridges, and dentures.
Fractured or Chipped Teeth
A fractured or chipped tooth can be unattractive and may lead to an infection. Treatment options include capping the tooth with a porcelain crown, which mimics the sheen and can be customized to match the rest of your smile.
Veneers are a cosmetic restoration for patients who find that chipped, misaligned, or worn down teeth have made their smile look less than desirable. These customized, wafer-thin shells of porcelain and are known to resist staining and are perfect for patients who have deep intrinsic staining that cannot be whitened with simple bleaching treatments. As the porcelain veneer is opaque, it covers these severe stains seamlessly.
