Help For Tetracycline And Fluoride Stains At Durham Dental Group

Here at Durham Dental Group, our mission is making the smiles of all North Carolina dental patients white and bright. In this post, we are going to talk about ways to enhance your beautiful smile with cosmetic dentistry.

Maybe as a teen you were prescribed tetracycline to combat acne, but have now been left with discolored teeth. Or maybe the municipal North Carolina water you drank growing up had excessive fluoride, another cause of tarnished teeth.

If you are like many Durham adults, you have sipped thousands of dark beverages such as coffee, soda, and wine over the years – and your teeth are showing the effects. Call us today to talk about our extensive treatment plans.

One of the options we recommend at Durham Dental Group for treating discolored teeth are beautiful dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain laminates). The reason we recommend veneers is that they not only restore discolored teeth, but they can cover worn, chipped, and cracked teeth.

This is done by placing a thin composite of porcelain over the damaged tooth or teeth leaving a gorgeous, white, flawless smile. At Durham Dental Group we feel that porcelain veneers are the least invasive form of cosmetic dentistry, yet the results are stunning. The smiles of our happy Durham veneer patients are dazzling.

Dental Veneers: 7 Fast Fixes

Durham Affordable Dentistry

This post from Durham Dental Group focuses on porcelain veneers, which are used extensively in cosmetic dentistry.

Porcelain veneers (also called laminates) are custom made to permanently cover the front part of one or more teeth. Wafer-thin, super-strong veneers can correct a variety of problems including:

1. Chips
2. Cracks
3. Stains
4. Teeth that are misshapen
5. Teeth that are too short
6. Teeth that are misaligned
7. Gaps between teeth

To create perfect-fitting veneers, we first create a model of your teeth. Following this, an experienced dental technician will use the model to make the veneers. In some veneer procedures, a small amount of the enamel from the face of the tooth has to be removed. Today’s veneer process leaves most of your healthy tooth structure.

A well-designed porcelain veneer from Durham Dental Group does not make your tooth look larger – unless you want it to.

A veneer can correct many cosmetic dental problems and is a minimally invasive restoration. During the placement of some porcelain veneers, an extremely thin layer of enamel is removed from the tooth.

If you have teeth with damage, discoloration, an irregular shape or minimal to moderate misalignment, you have several dental remedies to choose from. Don’t worry if you feel that veneers seem to have more cons than pros for you. You have options. We can analyze your smile, your needs, and your goals to develop a perfect plan.

The idea of cosmetic dentistry is to use dental techniques and procedures to create a positive change to your smile. Even a few small changes can dramatically improve your overall appearance. Putting several procedures together can do wonders for your self-esteem.

Some of the changes available with cosmetic dentistry are subtle, like dental crowns to restore a tooth to its normal shape and appearance. Others are more dramatic, like replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant.

A Facelift For Your Teeth?

Today’s message focuses on an effective and versatile cosmetic dental procedure available at Durham Dental Group, porcelain veneers.

Veneers are individual covers for the front part of teeth. They are a fantastic way to fix a range of imperfections, such as chips, stains, yellowing, an unattractive shape, or minimal misalignment.

Have you ever sought a minimally-invasive facelift for a tooth without getting an entire crown? Veneers are your solution! Strong, tooth-colored porcelain laminate is shaped into thin shells and custom-fitted for each patient’s unique set of teeth.

How many veneers should you get? This depends on how many teeth you want to beautify and the overall condition of your teeth. We can advise you on the most effective strategy.

The thickness, enamel color, alignment, and shape of your teeth influence the outcome as well as whether you have any gum recession. Veneers are matched to your existing teeth so they will blend seamlessly, but if you are planning to treat several teeth, you definitely want to have them constructed in the same “batch” at the lab.

The first step in the veneer process is to make a model of your teeth to work from. After that, a dental technician will use the model to fabricate the veneers to the specific size, shape, color, and degree of translucency.

Many patients wonder if veneers are as durable as their natural teeth. Though the veneer tooth-prep process weakens the tooth slightly, with proper care, veneers can last up to 15 years. We’ll advise you in detail on proper care of porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are an excellent option if you want to quickly improve the appearance of your smile. The Durham Dental Group provides general and cosmetic dentistry, and procedures like dental implants. Schedule an appointment with us today.
