Braces are intended to improve the alignment of your teeth to give you an even smile. At the same time, many adults suffer other cosmetic imperfections on the teeth in their smile. This might come in the form of chips, stains or mismatched fillings. Fortunately, your dentist, Dr. Groover, is well versed in a wide range of cosmetic dentistry treatments to give you the winning smile you deserve.
The specific imperfections impairing your smile will influence the treatment strategy Dr. Groover advocates.
If your teeth suffer from staining issues, we can professionally bleach your teeth. Once your teeth have been completely whitened, we will then help you identify how your teeth were initially stained so you can make alternative choices. This might also include using whitening toothpaste or whitening strips to maintain your smile’s bright, white luster.
Dental veneers can be used to remedy teeth with chips and deep stains. The porcelain veneers are custom crafted in a dental lab out of a porcelain material that will fit over the faces of the teeth in your smile. Once they are installed, they will look exactly like natural tooth enamel.
At the same time, the porcelain material is not as receptive to stains as natural tooth enamel. This will make it easy for you to maintain your new, white smile.
If it is only a matter of one or two teeth being marred by chips or visible old fillings, Dr. Nathan Owens might recommend completely restoring the tooth enamel with porcelain dental crowns.
