Helping people achieve a smile they want to share is an important part of what we do here at Norco Family Dental. We want each of our patients to look in the mirror and be proud and confident with what they see. If you have questions about how to make your teeth look better, we have answers.
And while there are many options available to cosmetically improve your teeth, our doctors know that understanding your expectations and communicating effectively is the most important part of the process. We strive to learn what you want, and then we work together to create that vision.
Some of the options available include:
- Porcelain veneers
- Esthetic dental crowns
- Teeth whitening
- White tooth-colored fillings
Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to your teeth to change the shape and color to a more desirable appearance. Small amounts of enamel are removed to allow space for these shells.
Dr. BJ Stewart and Dr. Shawn Buffington will work with you to custom create a smile that looks and feels great. In fact, using state-of-the-art technology, they can show you what the final result will look like before they even begin.
A crown is a type of cap that fits over your tooth to either restore the previous look or customize a new one. Crowns are similar to veneers except they encase the whole tooth while veneers only cover the front. While veneers are more conservative, crowns are more stable.
Professional Teeth Whitening
If you already like the size and shape of your teeth but want them a little whiter, teeth whitening is an excellent option. Custom trays are made for your teeth and small amounts of a whitening solution are placed in each tray to gently remove stains that make your teeth appear dark. And because you take these home, you are able to whiten on your own schedule!
If you have a chipped tooth, don’t despair! Drs. Stewart and Buffington can often replace the missing portion of a tooth with a simple tooth-colored (white) filling. A white filling is a composite material made of plastic and ceramic that mimics the look of tooth enamel. If the chip is cosmetic in nature, the repair can usually take place in less than an hour! Tooth-colored fillings are a great option that restores your teeth to their previous shape and function.
