Summer is really the perfect time to take advantage of the many treatments a cosmetic dentist in Reynoldsburg offers to make your smile look fabulous. The pace is a little slower, so you’re more likely to have the time for cosmetic care. Read on to learn about five of the most popular services to enhance your smile.
Dental Bonding is a simple cosmetic procedure that can usually be completed in less than an hour. You’re not likely to need any anesthesia either, which is a definite plus. For a tooth that is chipped or slightly broken, the dentist uses composite resin material to restore the tooth’s natural appearance. Once hardened, no one will be able to see the difference between your natural tooth and the repaired portion.
Whether you choose in-office teeth whitening or a take-home system, the results are bound to dazzle you and everyone looking at your smile. With in-office whitening, professional grade bleaching gel is applied to your teeth. While you relax in the chair, the solution bleaches away stains. The in-home system is equally effective, but requires nightly treatments for about two weeks.
Porcelain Veneers and Lumineers
These dental wonders are two sides of the same coin. Both effectively cover flaws such as chips, breaks, cracks and slightly crooked teeth. Both are adhesively bonded to the facial side of teeth that show when you smile. The difference is in the application. Porcelain veneers require prepping the teeth, while Lumineers can be attached without any advance preparation.
If you are missing one or more teeth, nothing is better for tooth replacement than dental implants. These closely replicate the structure of a tooth. The implant is embedded in your jawbone and given time to integrate with the surrounding bone tissue. Once this foundation is set, the appropriate tooth restoration is attached—a porcelain crown for a single tooth, a bridge for a few and dentures for a whole row.
If the problem with your smile isn’t your teeth but your gums, then there is gum contouring. With this procedure, a small amount of gum tissue is gently removed to make your teeth look longer. Patients with what is called a gummy smile can have a more balanced appearance.
No matter what your teeth or gums need, you can likely find a cosmetic procedure at a dentist in Reynoldsburg that will give you a smile that you love. Call to schedule an appointment today.
