COSMETIC DENTISTRY

cosmeticIf there are any flaws in your smile, whether it is chipped, crooked, or stained teeth, Robinson Dental Group can help. Anything that a patient wants to correct in their smile because it is not aesthetically pleasing can be addressed with a number of cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers, crowns or a combination of various techniques.

 
 
 

WHITENING

Over time with habits such as smoking, consumption of coffee and other dark beverages, and just normal wear and tear, teeth may lose their luster and begin to appear yellowed or stained. Whitening is an inexpensive and safe option to bring back their brightness. Whitening has become a very popular procedure for enhancing smiles.

CROWNS

A crown or cap is a metal and/or porcelain covering that is placed over the tooth surface, restoring strength and appearance. Crowns are needed when a filling is not enough to give a tooth proper structure, to fix fractures or lend support for bridges. Crowns improve the appearance and structure of the tooth.

Crowns typically are completed in two appointments. Impressions are made and sent to a local laboratory to create the custom crown. A temporary crown is placed on the tooth to protect it while the new one is being made. When the new crown arrives, the patient returns for placement and fitting.


VENEERS

Porcelain veneers are a beautiful option for creating the smile you have always wanted. Veneers consist of very thin sheets of porcelain that are attached to the front of the teeth, improving shape, size and color.

On the first step of the process, the existing teeth are buffed and shaped and an impression is taken. The specific color that will be used is also chosen. On the second step, bonding adhesive will be used to attach the veneer to the teeth and a light beam will set the adhesive.

 


FILLINGS

Previously, silver or gold fillings were used, but now composite resins are used to match the color of the teeth. The fillings are used to fix teeth that have been damaged by decay and fractures. The affected portion of the tooth is removed and that portion is replaced with composite filling. White fillings are attractive since they match existing teeth and will last for years to come.

Fillings can be done during one appointment, and anesthesia is necessary to allow the dentist to remove decay and apply medication to further protect nerve endings. Each filling is shaped and smoothed to ensure the tooth looks and feels authentic.
