Cosmetic Dentistry in Crowley
Today, cosmetic dentistry isn’t just for the wealthy and the famous – there’s a wide array of options at affordable price ranges that help improve the look of smile for millions of people.
Whether it’s subtle changes or major oral surgery, there are a host of cosmetic dentistry techniques, from teeth whitening or replacement, or shaping to close spaces – all designed for the treatment of teeth that are discolored, missing or chipped. The improvements are not just cosmetic, but many of the treatments play a vital role in improving oral problems, such as your bite.
Some of the common procedures include:
Typically made of porcelain, veneers are thin custom shells that are placed over the front sides of the teeth to improve the appearance and strength of chipped teeth.
Before the veneers is inserted and cemented directly onto the mouth, the tooth is lightly buffed to compensate for the added thickness of the veneer. Once the cement is between the veneer and your tooth, a beam of light is used to harden it which secures the veneer to your tooth.
Composite filling is used to provide durability and resistance to fracture that need to withstand moderate pressure that usually occurs from the constant stress of chewing. At Affordable Dentist In Crowley, we use composite fillings that appear just like your natural teeth. They are not just beautiful to look at, but are also stronger and will last for longer time.
Your teeth can become stained or discolored over time. Smoking, consuming foods and beverages such as coffee, tea, wine, and taking certain medications can cause teeth to lose their pearly whites.
Tooth whitening is a relatively inexpensive way to brighten your smile. The procedure can either be performed by us in our office or, at home under dental supervision and at your convenience. In-Office whitening may call for 45 minutes to one-hour visits, while At-home whitening can take two to four weeks or longer depending on the desired shade you wish to achieve.
Tooth Contouring and Reshaping
Tooth reshaping and contouring involves removing dental enamel to correct crooked, irregularly shaped or over lapping teeth and improve their appearance in a single session. The procedure is commonly used to layer the length, shape or position of your teeth, and can also help correct minor bite problems. The treatment is ideal for candidate with normal, healthy teeth, adequate bone between their teeth to support them.
Bonding improves the look of your teeth if they have excess gaps between them, or are chipped, cracked or broken. The procedure involves tooth-colored material that is used to fill in gaps or change the color of the teeth and protect the exposed root of a tooth. The procedure can be done in a single visit to our office.
