Do you remember the last time you smiled in public? If you have a cosmetic dental issue, you may feel more comfortable keeping your lips sealed. No matter what your problem, your smile can be improved with a visit to your Coppell, TX, cosmetic dentist Dr. Rick Larson. Below is information on several treatments that are used to correct smile issues.
Your porous tooth enamel traps stains caused by eating and drink darkly pigmented foods and drinks or smoking. Over time, your bright smile can turn dull and yellow due to the stains. Teeth whitening bleaches stains, improving the appearance of your teeth.
Whitening your teeth at our Coppell office offers several important benefits, including:
- Speed: It only takes one hour to whiten your teeth when you choose professional whitening.
- Results: Professional whitening can lighten your teeth by three to eight shades.
- Safety: We apply a protective gel to your roots and gums before treatment to reduce sensitivity.
- Convenience: We also offer take-home whitening kits with custom-designed trays for your convenience.
Bonding offers a simple, yet effective, way to treat a variety of cosmetic dental issues. Composite resin, a flexible, tooth-colored material, is added to your teeth during the bonding process. Bonding is used to reattach small pieces of broken teeth, fill in chipped areas, cover discolorations, and other imperfections, and change the shape or length of your teeth. Hardening the bonding material with a curing light helps it adhere to your enamel.
Dental veneers cover small flaws in the fronts of your teeth. They're made of a thin layer of porcelain that conceals many types of imperfections. Once attached to your teeth, veneers look and feel completely natural. They're used to whiten teeth, close gaps, lengthen teeth and hide discolorations, chips, cracks and other imperfections.
Tooth loss doesn't have to take away your smile. Dentures offer an effective way to restore missing teeth. Depending on the number of teeth you've lost, you may benefit from full or immediate dentures or partial dentures. Implant-supported dentures, the newest option, don't rest against your gums but are attached to small titanium posts implanted in your jawbone.
