Give Me My Smile Back!
Have you ever wondered just what happened to your smile? Not that it’s disappeared, of course; it’s still there, just different! And an upcoming wedding, high school reunion, or perhaps an important business presentation has made you take a second look, wonder where that brilliant smile of your youth disappeared to, and what you can do bring it back.
The answer may be found in cosmetic dentistry. Procedures such as teeth whitening, composite bonding, porcelain veneers, and tooth-colored fillings preformed in our Lafayette office can do wonders to improve minor smile imperfections or provide a quick fix. And the good news is that cosmetic dentistry doesn’t necessarily have to take a toll on your wallet. Many of the procedures available today offer substantial smile improvements without substantial expense.
These are just a few of the many, many cosmetic options available today, and chances are your dentist would be happy to review them based on your dental health and cosmetic needs. Check with us to learn how we can help give you the healthy, brilliant smile you desire!
Teeth that have lost their youthful, white appearance due to smoking, age, drinking coffee or tea, or eating staining foods like blueberry or cherry pie can usually be restored to a youthful brilliance through tooth-bleaching. Dr. Moss offers professional-grade, in-office tooth whitening, with a take-home kit that allows you to do touch-ups at home.
If your teeth have turned or shifted, or you’ve noticed small, unsightly spaces or gaps in between your teeth, your dentist may suggest composite bonding or tooth alignment. Through composite bonding, tooth-colored material is used to cover spaces and gaps or address minor shifts. Brief, in-office procedures can do wonders to cover these minor cracks or chips, fill in spaces, and improve your overall smile. If your teeth are getting crowded or overlapped, minor tooth aligners can help straighten out these areas in as little as 3 to 5 months.
Substantial cases of tooth misalignment, spacing, or discoloration may require more extensive procedures, and porcelain or composite restorations can help to achieve a substantial smile makeover. Porcelain veneers can mask stains when whitening won’t do the trick, or cover teeth that have substantially shifted or turned. Composite tooth colored materials can be used to replace old metal fillings.
