When you think of a makeover, images of weight loss, a new haircut, or having a makeup consultation may come to mind. But what about your smile? Advanced Dentistry of Scarsdale offers several cosmetic dentistry options. A smile makeover involves enhancing the appearance of your smile using one or more of our cosmetic services.
Teeth whitening is the simplest and most basic smile makeover option available. A variety of whitening (or bleaching) options can meet every budget and schedule. From whitening kits to a quick bleaching treatment at your Westchester dentist, there is something for everyone.
Most people are born with white enamel. As we age, tooth enamel diminishes to expose the yellow dentin beneath. Extrinsic and intrinsic stains may be evident. Extrinsic stains appear on the surface of teeth due to consuming dark colored drinks, smoking, tobacco use, eating certain foods and basic wear and tear. You can remove most of these stains by brushing and flossing daily. Deeper stains may need teeth bleaching.
Intrinsic stains form on the inner layer of teeth. They can be due to trauma, aging, exposure to certain minerals, or significant fluoride intake. If teeth whitening and regular bleaching maintenance don’t work, veneers provide another route.
Veneers are a great option if you aren’t able to further whiten or straighten your natural teeth. Veneers can create a white smile with shapely and bright teeth. They may also help protect teeth from further damage. Compared to crowns, veneers do not need extensive removal of tooth structure. You may want to consider veneers if your teeth aren’t quite as bright or straight as you’d like them to look.
Dental implants are both a prosthetic and cosmetic dentistry service. For those with missing teeth, an implant can halt or inhibit bone loss while providing a full smile. A missing tooth can be the result of gum disease, trauma on the mouth, a dental procedure failure, extreme wear and tear, or tooth decay. A consultation with your dentist, the procedure, and finally recovery are all a part of the dental implant process. Schedule a consultation with Advanced Dentistry of Scarsdale today to see if an implant is the best smile makeover option for you.
Dental bonding is a common procedure that attaches a dental material to your teeth using a curing light and adhesive. Bonding happens in procedures like installing a crown, bridge, or porcelain veneer.
