There are several cosmetic dentistry procedures that can give you the smile you have always wanted. There are procedures for reshaping teeth, fixing chips/cracks, brightening your smile, and much more. A cosmetic dentist can help you select the right cosmetic dentistry procedures for you. Dr. R. Scott Langdon is your cosmetic dentist in Mooresville, NC.
Cosmetic contouring is a procedure for reshaping teeth that are oddly shaped. The teeth are contoured and reshaped by removing small portions of enamel. The dentist continues removing enamel a little at a time until the misshapen tooth has been corrected. During a consultation, your Mooresville cosmetic dentist can determine whether cosmetic contouring would be the right procedure for improving the appearance of a problem tooth.
Cosmetic fillings are an aesthetically pleasing alternative to metal fillings. Just like any other type of filling, cosmetic fillings help strengthen and restore areas of teeth that have been affected by decay. Cosmetic fillings are made from a composite resin material that can be closely matched to the natural tooth color. Since cosmetic fillings match the color of teeth, the fillings blend right in and are not easily noticed by others.
Veneers can give teeth with certain types of cosmetic imperfections a whole new look. A veneer is a thin cover, usually made from porcelain or plastic, that is placed on the front surface of a problem tooth to conceal any marred areas. Veneers help transform the look of teeth that are stained, discolored, chipped, cracked, oddly shaped, or have uneven surfaces. Veneers can also be used to conceal gaps between teeth. The size, shape, and color of veneers are customized to each patient for the best fit and most natural look possible.
Teeth whitening treatments can whiten your teeth by several shades in a single one-hour in-office treatment session. Professional in-office whitening treatments deliver the fastest and longest lasting whitening results of any type of teeth whitening treatment. Further, in-office teeth whitening treatments are the safest way to achieve significantly whiter and brighter teeth, for special precautions are taken to protect the gums.
