For those looking for more comprehensive solutions to hide imperfections in their smile, porcelain veneers may be the most ideal. Each veneer is customized to meet your exact preferences and fit over teeth visible in your smile. This means any stains, chips, cracks, gaps or other imperfections can be easily hidden to make your smile look brand-new. Veneers are also durable and even resist staining better than tooth enamel because of its smooth surface. With proper care, they can last between 10 and 15 years or longer.
Porcelain veneers are very effective for cosmetic purposes, but they do require removing a small amount of enamel in order to be placed. This makes their placement essentially permanent. To avoid shaving down your current tooth enamel and give yourself more freedom, Lumineers can be a great alternative! These veneers are extremely thin, typically about as thick as a contact lens, and therefore do not require extensive preparation to place and create a natural smile. Of course, some people do believe that Lumineers are not quite as lifelike as traditional veneers. Our team is more than happy to acknowledge the differences between the treatments and help you make a decision from there.
No longer do you have to resort to dark silver and gold materials just to restore your teeth. Instead, Addison Family Dentistry uses tooth-colored ceramics whenever we can to provide an absolutely stunning esthetic finish that is indistinguishable from your natural teeth. These materials even reflect light in a natural way and do not cause teeth sensitivity since they are metal-free. If you have allergies to metal materials, you’ll find that ceramics are safer and will not cause negative reactions. Whether you need a ceramic crown, inlay, onlay, bridge or other restorations, you can get them here in Addison.
If you’d rather not have a full-scale makeover, it is possible to treat minor imperfections that you simply cannot look away from. For example, if a tiny chip in your enamel or a small gap between your teeth is distracting, our team will more than likely recommend cosmetic bonding. In just one short appointment, we can apply a small amount of tooth-colored composite resin to the affected area, then sculpt it around the tooth to ensure the flaw is no longer visible. Don’t worry, the resin is color-match to blend in with your tooth exactly, making it look subtle. Cosmetic bonding is not as permanent as metal-free fillings or crowns, but it will still last many years.
Healthy teeth can still end up looking dull or yellow in color, especially as you age, taking a toll on your self-confidence. At Addison Family Dentistry, it’s easy to transform your smile’s natural glow with professional-grade whitening treatment. For fast results, in-office whitening can provide you with teeth that are several shades whiter in a single appointment. Additionally, patients can take advantage of take-home whitening kits that allow you to whiten teeth on your own time within your home. We’re happy to recommend a treatment that best fits your preferences and smile goals during your consultation.
Does your smile appear to be overly short or gummy? If so, it’s likely because you have excessive gum tissue covering your enamel. With the help of our dental office’s advanced soft tissue laser, we can remove this excess gum tissue and recontour your natural gum line into a more pleasing and balanced shape. After removing unnecessary tissue and correcting asymmetrical issues, we’ll reveal more of your beautiful smile to your friends and family in the process! Additionally, gum recontouring may be performed for restorative purposes, such as to expose more of a tooth prior to crown placement.
