Today, cosmetic dentistry is more popular than ever, from whitening and shaping to closing spaces and replacing teeth. And there are a wide array of tools and techniques that we can use to improve the look of your smile.
If you have a chipped tooth, gaps, discolorations, worn-out teeth, or are in need of provisional restoration prior to more permanent and lasting veneers, then you are probably a candidate for dental bonding. Tooth bonding is a one-appointment cosmetic dentistry procedure that uses composite resins to close gaps between teeth, eliminate minor discolored spots and repair chips. It can also be used to repair certain types of front teeth fractures.
Using a high-strength, custom color-matched resin, we at gums n braces can conceal the damaged area and reinforce the tooth, thereby creating a picture-perfect smile that looks entirely natural.
Improving your smile can increase your self-confidence! Whether you want to look extra special for an upcoming wedding or an event or simply want your teeth to sparkle, a teeth whitening treatment at gums n braces can help you achieve a bright white smile. Over time, teeth can become stained or discolored, especially after smoking, taking certain medications, or consuming foods and beverages such as coffee and tea. We can whiten your teeth in one of two ways. Either an in-office procedure, or with a system to use at home.
Keep in mind, your teeth can become stained again if you continue exposing them to the same substances that originally stained them. Because whitening products are not meant to clean teeth, it is still important to get a professional cleaning done and continue practicing daily oral hygiene by brushing and flossing.
Are you troubled by chips, cracks or stains on your teeth? Would you prefer to have straighter, more even teeth, but can’t stand the idea of going through a long orthodontic process? Porcelain veneers can correct a wide variety of common aesthetic problems and can be used alone or with other cosmetic or restorative-dentistry procedures. If your teeth are discolored, chipped or misaligned, they can be transformed into a whiter, brighter, beautifully designed smile with porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are bonded to your teeth and used to correct imperfections and rebuild strength and durability. They are custom-made with premium porcelain that looks natural, blends beautifully with the surrounding teeth, and is resistant to staining or discoloration.
Gingival / Gum plastic surgery
If you show too much gums when you smile and you are unhappy with your smile, you may be a candidate for gum contouring surgery. Also called gum reshaping or tissue sculpting, this cosmetic dental procedure can even out an uneven gum line.
On the other hand if you have receding gums leading to exposure of the roots of the teeth we can cover the recession with a soft tissue graft and give you a smile you can be proud of.
