If you are researching smile redesigns, you have probably heard claims that cosmetic dentistry can provide you with a ‘perfect smile’ or a ‘celebrity smile.’ Are these superlatives simply exaggerations? The team at Durham Dental Group invites you to judge for yourself.
A smile makeover involves multiple cosmetic dentistry procedures which may include the following:
A dental implant is a metal (usually titanium) rod implanted into the bone to replace the missing root of a tooth. The crown and supporting structure are securely attached to the post.
Orthodontic options include traditional metal or ceramic braces, ‘behind-the-teeth’ (lingual) braces, and clear aligners.
If you had tooth decay in the past, you may have old amalgam fillings. White fillings match your surrounding teeth, significantly improving your smile without crowns.
There are many different kinds of crowns that serve different purposes. We complete an extensive examination to ensure the crown you get is perfect for you and your smile.
Inlays/onlays are indirect fillings, which means that they are fabricated in a lab and placed whole on the tooth. A traditional direct filling is applied to the tooth while the material is malleable and then shaped by the dentist. Where possible, an inlay or an onlay can be a less-invasive alternative to a complete crown.
Veneers can repair chips, cracks, minor tooth misalignment, tooth discoloration, unattractive tooth shape, and disproportionate tooth size.
There is nothing like a terrific white smile to give you ultimate confidence.
Dentists use bonding to repair tooth problems caused by decay, chips, or cracks. Large spaces between healthy teeth can be filled with bonding material, and bonding can safeguard tooth roots if the gums have receded.
Just one slightly misshapen tooth can downgrade the features of a smile even if all the other teeth have a winning appearance.
If you have a gumline that is too low or too high and detracts from the presentation, gum contouring can reshape the gumline and transform your smile.
