Few things are more upsetting than damaged teeth. While there are plenty of preventative maintenance habits that are instrumental in protecting and keeping teeth healthy, the truth is it’s not uncommon for injury or decay to impact your perfect smile. Fortunately, in Dr. Cesare’s office, you can find the type of restorative dentistry you need for ideal dental health and to restore your great smile.
Today's teeth whitening treatments are so easy, convenient and affordable that they've become a regular part of everyone's beauty routine. If you haven't tried one yet, you'll be happy to know that you have plenty of choices. For the fastest, most dramatic results, consider laser teeth whitening. Laser teeth whitening treatments take just an hour and can whiten teeth up to 10 shades. If you're the do-it-yourself type, an at-home teeth whitening kit might be right for you. These professional grade teeth whitening kits produce excellent results over a longer period of time. They can be purchased from your dentist or over-the-counter, but for best results, it's recommended that you always consult with a dentist before trying any over-the-counter teeth whitening system.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Accident or injury is a common cause of chipped or cracked teeth. Depending on the extent of the damage, dental bonding is an ideal solution. Not only does dental bonding repair the crack or chip, it also serves to enhance the appearance of the previously damaged tooth.
Implant Supported Crowns and Bridges
What is a dental implant? A natural tooth consists of a crown, and a root. The crown is that part of the tooth which can be seen above the gum tissue. The root is hidden under the gum tissue, and within the bone. It is the root which secures the natural tooth to the jawbone.
In order to replace a missing tooth, your doctor must re-create the crown portion, and choose the best method for affixing it within the mouth. Dental implants were developed for this purpose. Dental Implants are artificial devices used by dentists to replace missing teeth.
"White" or "tooth colored fillings" are also considered a general dental service. Click here to learn more.
Porcelain veneers are another option for correcting damaged teeth and brightening your smile. Extremely thin wafers are placed over the teeth. While veneers are expensive, they correct the damage, brighten your smile, and can be used to completely change the shape of the teeth if such cosmetic measures are necessary.
