Smile Makeovers: It’s Not Just About Your Teeth

Durham Dental Group Smile Makeovers Its Not Just About Your Teeth

At Durham Dental Group, a smile makeover is all about using cosmetic dentistry procedures to make positive changes to your teeth. It combines two or more of these procedures to upgrade your smile.

The effects of a smile makeover may be subtle, or they may be quite dramatic. With cosmetic dentistry we can make changes to the color of your teeth, close gaps, fix chips or cracks, or re-shape gum tissue. Since it addresses aspects you dislike, you can think of it as a customized smile.

The procedures include:

  • Porcelain veneers
  • Bonding
  • White fillings
  • Teeth whitening

Porcelain veneers are thin layers of medical-grade ceramic that are attached to the front of the teeth. They can be used to cover gaps, chips, and stains.

Bonding involves using a composite resin to repair decay, chips, or fractures. It can also be used to make teeth seem longer. The color of the resin matches that of your teeth.

White fillings fill cavities, and also blend seamlessly with your teeth. Instead of unsightly metal fillings, you’re left with a totally natural appearance.

Teeth whitening. Everyone wants whiter teeth, and teeth whitening is one of the most in-demand cosmetic dentistry procedures there is. Professional whitening surpasses any over-the-counter product you can find.

At Durham Dental Group, our team will work with you to customize a treatment plan that will result in the smile you’ve always wanted. Services include general and cosmetic dentistry. We also offer children’s dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today!

Do You Have The Most Common Dental Problem?

Durham Teeth WhiteningAt Durham Dental Group, we restore decayed teeth to create smiles that are both healthy and beautiful. Recent advances in techniques and materials have made the impossible not only possible, but affordable, too.

Decay is easily the most common dental problem and the second most common ailment in the nation (number one is the common cold). If you have one or more teeth with decay, it’s time to take care of them.

Fillings, inlays, onlays and crowns are used to restore teeth for our Durham cosmetic dental patients. Even the most basic procedure – filling a cavity – has evolved. There are several types of new materials available including porcelain and composite resin. Each has specific strengths and aesthetic considerations. Durham patients who replace silver amalgam with tooth-colored fillings love getting the metal out of their smile.

Inlays and onlays are more extensive restorations. There are two types: direct or indirect. Direct inlays and onlays are made on the spot and applied in one visit. Indirect inlays and onlays are fabricated in a dental lab. They usually require a second visit but the results are well worth the extra trip.

When a patient has a tooth that cannot be restored with an inlay or an onlay, a natural-looking crown is the answer. At Durham Dental Group, we create crowns that blend in perfectly with the rest of your teeth. Let us show you some photos of patients who have received smile makeovers – you will not see any “Chiclet” crowns that stick out like a sore thumb.

At Durham Dental Group we offer general and cosmetic dentistry, including crowns. Call for an appointment today.

Creating Memorable Smiles At Durham Dental Group

Creating Memorable Smiles at Durham Dental GroupA smile takes but a moment, but the memory of it lasts forever. You can make your smile memorable with a cosmetic dentistry smile makeover at Durham Dental Group in Durham.

Cosmetic dentistry is a broad term that means dentistry with an emphasis on aesthetics. But it isn’t just about appearance; it can be good for your dental health, too.

For example, straight teeth in the correct position look great, but they are easier to care for, and make for a healthier mouth. That probably explains why clear braces are among the most popular cosmetic dentistry options; they can straighten your teeth, and are almost undetectable as you wear them.

Also in demand are porcelain veneers. They can completely transform the appearance of your smile, and like other cosmetic dentistry, are minimally invasive. A thin layer of tooth enamel is removed before veneers are permanently attached to your teeth. After that, you’ve got a mega-watt smile.

These and other cosmetic dentistry procedures can be completed without any pain at all. So if you’re looking to upgrade your smile, or simply restore integrity to yellowed or damaged teeth, we have a procedure for you.

At Durham Dental Group, we want all our patients to have memorable, healthy teeth. Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry, including clear braces and porcelain veneers. Schedule an appontment with us today!

Teeth Whitening: Do It Right

Durham dentist teeth whitening

As the years go by, our teeth naturally lose their luster. Dark colored foods and drinks speed up the process, but even people who avoid coffee, wine and cola are not immune to yellow or gray teeth. Want to brighten up your smile? Have you considered cosmetic dentistry? Cosmetic teeth whitening at Durham Dental Group is one of the quickest and most affordable ways to look younger and more attractive.

Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?

Though some people experience a little short-term sensitivity, most experience no pain at all.

There are several different methods for whitening teeth but each uses a solution containing peroxide to remove the stains that have accumulated in the microscopic cracks in your tooth enamel.

DIY Whitening Products
First of all, the strips, mouthwashes and paint-on whiteners use a lower concentration of whitening agent than in-office methods. They rarely remove all of the stains on your enamel. If you have gum disease, cavities, crowns, dental bonding, or porcelain veneers, we recommend a consultation first. You are always better off having teeth whitening performed by a professional. This will protect your existing restorations and ensure the best possible results.

Don’t assume that whitening offered at mall kiosks is risk-free. The industry is largely unregulated and the staff often have little dental training. Do you really want to take chances with your smile?

At Durham Dental Group, we brighten smiles with cosmetic dentistry every day.  We’ve got extended evening and weekend hours for your convenience. Call to schedule an appointment today!
