To improve appearance and build self-esteem, teeth whitening is one of the most common and popular cosmetic dentistry services available today. Whether your teeth have become stained from drinking coffee and soda, smoking cigarettes or regular enamel wear, a whitening solution can remove the stains and help you achieve the bright, white smile you have been yearning for. We’ll find the whitening plan that works best with your goals and schedule, whether in-office or at home.
Dental bonding solves a variety of cosmetic and structural issues. From closing gaps between teeth and reducing tooth sensitivity to lengthening short teeth and restoring cracked or chipped teeth, dental bonding is a remarkable and simple process to help improve a patient’s smile. When the appropriate tooth-colored resin is bonded to your mouth, it will stay in place for many years and will look and act like natural teeth. The process is generally completed in a single visit.
Composite Fillings & Tooth-Colored Restorations
Unlike the metal fillings of yesteryear, today’s composite fillings can be matched to the precise tooth shade of the mouth in which it will be placed. The result is a natural looking filling that is virtually imperceptible. For those with pre-existing metal fillings, our dentists can replace them with composite fillings or other tooth-colored restorations to help give you a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
Dental veneers are one of the least invasive dental procedures available to help our patients change their smile for the better. Crafted from porcelain for the most natural look, veneers are a new tooth surface that is fitted over your existing teeth. They can be colored to match your existing teeth or your ideal shade before being bonded to your teeth. Whether looking to lengthen your front teeth, permanently whiten teeth, reduce tooth sensitivity, repair worn teeth or fill gaps between teeth, expertly placed veneers can last for up to 10 years. As a bonus, with the thinness of porcelain veneers, tooth reduction is significantly diminished in order to preserve the existing teeth.
Your smile isn’t limited to your teeth alone. Smile lines often appear as fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth and forehead – deepening with age. Though many deem them a sign of character, if your confidence has taken a hit from those lines and wrinkles, there is something our dentists can do to help you. Drs. Harry and Darby Gentry are pleased to offer Botox treatments to help relax your facial muscles and minimize the appearance of your existing wrinkles. Treatments are a breeze and only take a few minutes to complete. You should start noticing results in 3-5 days after your treatment, which will generally last for 4-6 months. When the results start to wear off, you can return to our office for another treatment.
Gravity can take a toll on our smiles, as well. An option or enhancement to Botox Treatments, dermal fillers are also used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and add a youthful fullness to certain areas of the face – like your lips or cheeks – by injecting the skin with hydrating substances. In addition to returning roundness to your cheeks while decreasing wrinkles and fine lines, we’ve found that dermal fillers are highly effective for minimizing laugh lines around the mouth and nose area. Our dentists are certified in cosmetic injections and are experts in facial structure. Treatments are fast, easy and the results will last for months.
