Cosmetic Dentistry – High Point, NC
Bringing Out the Beauty of Your Smile
A smile is a beautiful thing, but cracks, stains, and other imperfections can sometimes get in the way. When you visit Dr. Bhadani for an appointment, she may ask whether you’re happy with your smile; feel free to let her know if any flaws bother you when you see it in the mirror or a family photo. She has many different treatment options for cosmetic dentistry in High Point, NC that can create a grin that fills you with pride and confidence.
A veneer is a very thin shell that completely hides the front of a tooth. Any cracks, stains, gaps, or other imperfections will be hidden away underneath a layer of lifelike porcelain that has been shaded to look like a natural part of your tooth. Veneers make dramatic changes that last a long time; the porcelain they’re made of is durable and doesn’t stain as easily as enamel does, so you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy your enhanced smile.
Metal-Free Dental Restorations
What kind of materials do you think of when you hear the phrase “dental crown”? Gold, silver, and nickel may come to mind. In modern times, porcelain and ceramic crowns are far more popular. They don’t make significant sacrifices when it comes to long-term durability, but unlike metal restorations, they can be made to look indistinguishable from a real tooth.
While a veneer is usually reserved for a tooth that needs a complete makeover, direct bonding is the better option for teeth that just need a quick touchup. We simply take a small amount of composite resin and use it to hide small cracks and other minor dental issues. Even a slight change can make a great difference in your smile, and the correction can be made in just one visit.
Zoom Teeth Whitening
ZOOM! teeth whitening goes right to the source of discoloration, penetrating the enamel and breaking up the stains that toothpaste and other commercial products simply cannot reach. The whole procedure can be completed in about an hour, meaning you can walk in with a dull smile and leave with a dramatically brighter one!
Invisalign Clear Aligners
Crooked teeth can be embarrassing, but so can wearing metal braces to work or college for months or years. Invisalign doesn’t just straighten your smile; it does so in such a discreet way that all anyone else will notice is a grin that slowly becomes straighter and more attractive. You don’t even have to give up any of your favorite foods during the treatment because the aligners can just be taken out and stored in a secure container while you eat!
How much of a difference will veneers or professional whitening really make? It is important to have realistic expectations, but you also want to be confident that you’ll be happy with the outcome. As such, Dr. Bhadani can give you a preview of your future smile using digital imaging. By adjusting photos of your teeth as they currently are, she can show you firsthand the impact that specific cosmetic procedures will have on your appearance.
Sometimes, the way the gums grow can cause them to look uneven or overdeveloped compared to the teeth, and this can detract from the appearance of the smile. A small amount of tissue can be gently removed to give the gumline a more aesthetically pleasing shape and expose hidden tooth structure so that all of the pearly whites appear to be perfectly sized.
