Exciting new advances have been made in cosmetic dentistry that can whiten teeth, close gaps and improve the appearance of your smile. If you have always wanted to improve on nature, talk to us. We look forward to answering your questions about this exciting aspect of dental care.
Teeth sometimes yellow with age. Tobacco, foods, and beverages (such as coffee, tea and berries) and tarter deposits can stain tooth enamel. If your teeth are yellow or discolored, you may wish to ask us about whitening- a simple at-home treatment accomplished by wearing custom trays and a bleaching gel. It is normally recommended that you use the trays each day for two weeks. Other ways to whiten teeth include crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers. The doctors at Ingleside Dental can help you decide which treatment is best for you.
Bonding and White Fillings
Cosmetic dentistry is no longer just for the front teeth. Those old silver fillings that have made your back teeth dark and unattractive can now be replaced with state-of-the-art materials that will make your teeth stronger, healthier and much more attractive. At Ingleside Dental Associates, we can use a tooth colored filling material to restore teeth when necessary. These posterior resin composites are bonded to the tooth to last much longer than silver mercury fillings. They are also much more esthetic.
With dentistry's many advances, you no longer have to put up with teeth that are discolored, crooked, or have spaces! Veneers are tiny, custom-made shells, crafted of tooth colored materials designed to cover the front side of teeth. This type of procedure will ultimately give you that perfect smile you have always dreamed of having. Veneers may be just what you need for that whiter, straighter smile that you have always wanted.
