Building Beautiful Smiles
Cosmetic dentistry has many facets in modern dentistry. Most of them boil down to a patient’s desire to have an improved, beautiful smile. Bleaching and veneers probably have the most notoriety when it comes to cosmetic dentistry, but there are many options when restoring a smile. Many of the options above may also be incorporated.
A troubling trend in dentistry today is using veneers in inappropriate cases. Many patients believe veneers will be able to fix their smile forever; however, it is important to understand that even the best dentistry does not last forever. Often times, a more conservative approach of coordinated care between the orthodontist (braces) and the general dentist can lead to less natural tooth structure removal should veneers, or for that matter any treatment, be indicated.
Finally, it is our belief at Rayburn General Dentistry that a patient should be fully educated in their treatment options. This is especially true when it involves elective procedures. Careful treatment planning and an open dialog between the patient and the dentist will lead to a more satisfying outcome for all involved.
There are certain flaws in your smile that may not threaten your health or physical well-being. There’s no pain or discomfort when you chew or talk nor does the problem pose an immediate risk to your mouth.
That being said, the cosmetic flaws of your teeth and mouth can affect you in other ways. They may cause anxiety when you meet new people or force you to keep your lips closed when you’d instead laugh out loud. Cosmetic dentistry in Jasper TX can be the answer you’re looking for if you want to be a little more confident and a little less nervous.
Patients have plenty of options if they’re looking to improve their pearly whites! Rayburn General Dentistry is here to help:
Whitening: For those who love their morning cigarette and coffee break, professional teeth whitening can reverse the months or years of built-up staining.
Veneers or bonding: Veneers or dental bonding are coverings for the tooth to make it more resistant to stains or signs of tooth decay. Veneers can cover up small blemishes in the teeth, such as chips or cracks, while bonding can obscure more significant and more severe flaws.
Dental Crowns: A crown is a type of cap, which can replace a tooth that has rotted or sustained severe damages. Unlike implants, a crown goes above the gum line to restore the tooth’s original appearance. This can not only help your smile look better, but it can also prevent future harm to the tooth.
These are just a few of the options available for those who would like to stop avoiding mirrors. From a simple teeth-whitening to a set of implants, our team can help you improve your look while protecting your mouth from long-term damage.
