There’s nothing wrong with wanting to look your best, and if your smile is crooked, chipped, or discolored, you can’t show off that smile confidently. It’s March – so we’ve got St. Patrick’s Day parties, and then the beginning of Spring, and then Easter, and so many other celebrations where you should be putting your best smile forward. But can you really get a brighter, whiter, straighter smile without a huge hassle? YES! You can! Our Georgetown dental office wants to explain some of the cosmetic dentistry treatments that are available that can, literally, turn your life around in no time at all.
Bonding is when we use tooth-colored material to repair gaps, chips, and some discolorations on your teeth. We can cover just a section of a tooth to fix a small bit of decay, or we can cover the entire surface of the tooth to fix the overall shape and color.
Veneers are super-thin (as thin as a contact lens!), customized pieces of porcelain meant to fit over the front of your teeth for an immediate makeover. At our Georgetown dental office, we use veneers to cover up uneven spaces, cover chips, and also cover discolorations.
Crowns and caps are two names for the same concept. If you have a tooth that is deteriorating, we can create a new tooth that ‘caps’ over the existing one – not just for appearance but also for functionality. We create the crowns here in the office using CAD/CAM technology to mill your crown using our CEREC machine. This advanced technology means no goopy impressions, and no sending out anything to a lab.
If your smile isn’t as white as you’d like it to be, due to neglect or coffee or whatever the case may be, we’re not here to judge. We can recommend an in-office treatment or even a take-home kit to brighten your smile for all the upcoming fall events.
If your dental situation is more complicated, don’t worry. It happens! The team at our Georgetown dental office is happy to talk to you about things like Invisalign to correct a crooked smile, dental implants to replace a missing tooth, or even a full smile makeover. We use the latest technology and techniques to not only get your smile back to it’s best appearance but also to get your oral health and overall health back to the healthiest levels possible.
