Unfortunately, even healthy smiles can fall victim to aesthetic flaws over time, such as stains, chip, gaps, and more. Thankfully, an experienced dentist like Dr. Edward Carter can help you overcome these frustrations with a personalized smile makeover. Patients will be able to choose from our variety of available cosmetic services in order to achieve the dazzling, confident results they’ve been dreaming of. To get started, contact our Topton practice today!
Porcelain veneers are an excellent cosmetic solution for patients who would like to correct several dental flaws at once, such as discoloration, cracks, gaps, and even misshapen teeth. They’re crafted from high-quality dental ceramic and designed to be extremely thin in nature – thin enough that they can fit over the front surface of your smile and appear beautifully natural.
Many patients become nervous when Dr. Carter informs them that they’ll need restorative work because they don’t want to lose their natural, beautiful smile. Thankfully, our practice is home to cosmetic-friendly dental inlays, and onlays for those who are image-conscious. These metal-free materials are high in quality, very durable, and lifelike enough that they’ll blend right in alongside your natural teeth. Better yet, they’re 100% biocompatible, which means they’re perfectly safe even for patients with proven sensitivities and allergies to older dental restorations.
Direct bonding is a fast and affordable cosmetic solution that can be used to help patients overcome relatively minor dental flaws, such as stubborn staining, noticeable chips in the enamel, and minor gaps between teeth. The procedure only takes a single appointment here in Topton.
Dr. Carter will begin by selecting the shade of tooth-colored composite resin that most closely matches your natural enamel. Then, he will carefully sculpt it into place over the affected tooth so that it fully covers the offending area in a lifelike fashion. Then, all that’s left to do is harden the addition in place and polish it. The results may not be as permanent as other cosmetic and restorative solutions, but they can serve patients well for several years as long as they’re cared for with personal oral hygiene and professional maintenance.
Smiles can become dull and discolored over time for a wide variety of reasons, from certain food choices to simple old age. What’s most important is that you’re able to regain the bright, confident look you want most, and that can be accomplished here in Topton with the help of a powerful at-home whitening kit. All you’ll have to do is wear the whitening gel and custom-made oral tray together each day, and you should see beautiful improvements in a matter of weeks.
If your teeth appear overly short or your smile seems excessively “gummy,” state-of-the-art laser gum recontouring from Dr. Carter can help patients achieve the beautiful improvements they’re looking for at last. This modern technique is designed to create a much more balanced and harmonious gum line that flatters your smile and reveals beautiful, healthy tooth structure that was unnecessarily hidden away.
During the procedure, Dr. Carter will precisely eliminate excess tissue from certain areas of the mouth. By using the laser, we can minimize patient discomfort and help you recover in a much faster timeframe than with traditional tools. Before you know it, you’ll be back to enjoying a smile that finally compliments your self-confidence!
