Imperfections in teeth can make you feel self-conscious about your smile. A cracked tooth or ugly yellow stains on your teeth can really impact your day-to-day life and lower your confidence. Let us show you how a Fenton cosmetic dentist could transform your smile and change the way you feel about yourself.
Cosmetic dentistry treatments can totally alter the look and function of your smile, teeth, and gums, or subtly fix a minor flaw – it’s your choice. Let our dentists at Glen Lake Family Dentistry guide you in designing your dream appearance, and then help you make it a reality.
Making the decision to have a cosmetic dentistry procedure is often a personal choice. The following interactive tools will help you determine whether we are the right cosmetic dentist in Fenton for you.
Here are a few the cosmetic dentistry procedures offered at Glen Lake Family Dentistry:
Porcelain veneers are not false teeth; they are bonded to the front of your teeth, providing a bright, new, straight surface that can cover any chips, stains, breaks, or gaps you may have.
When creating your porcelain veneers, a shade of porcelain will be chosen to match your natural teeth. Dental porcelain is very natural in translucence and reflective properties compared to natural tooth enamel. Once bonded to your teeth, your smile will look flawless and completely natural.
It is important to select a cosmetic dentist who is specially trained and experienced when receiving your porcelain veneers. The right cosmetic dentist will make sure your porcelain veneers will both improve your smile to your exact specifications, and make sure your new smile looks natural. With the right porcelain veneers, the color, shape, and even translucency of the veneers will look just like naturally beautiful teeth.
Crowns cover your tooth, protecting it and keeping it strong. They can be made of gold, porcelain fused to metal, or pure white porcelain (to look just like a natural tooth). Crowns are an ideal way to repair teeth that have been broken or have been weakened by tooth decay or a very large filling. A crown could be used for a number of other reasons, for example:
- You may have a discolored filling and would like to improve the appearance of the tooth.
- You may have had a root filling and need a crown to protect what is left of the tooth.
- It may help to hold a bridge or denture firmly in place.
Contouring is when we reshape your teeth if they are crooked, chipped or overlapping. We carefully reduce your teeth and build them up with laminate material until they are the perfect shape and size.
We can improve the appearance of your teeth by closing the gaps between them – that’s called “bonding.” A resin material is applied to your teeth, and then we harden it using a special light.
CEREC is short for “Ceramic REConstruction,” and it’s a special technology used by dentists to create inlays, onlays, partial crowns, posterior crowns, anterior crowns, and veneers. At DeCo Dental Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we’re proud to have a CEREC machine in our dental office.
