High Tech Dentistry Can Give You The Smile You’ve Always Wanted

by | Aug 3, 2017 | Dentist

Have you looked at your smile in pictures or the mirror recently and noticed it’s not exactly the way you’d like it to be? High Tech Dentistry can give you the smile that may have disappeared over the years due to illness, injury, medication, age, tobacco use, coffee, tea, or gum disease. Do the silver fillings or missing teeth make you feel self-conscious about your appearance? Silver fillings can be safely removed and replaced with composite fillings that will be the same color as the surrounding teeth. Missing teeth can be replaced with dental implants.

Teeth Whitening

This type of procedure can be performed in a dental office in approximately an hour. A highly-concentrated solution will be used in a tray and placed over the teeth. The lips, tongue, and gums will be protected with a gel to prevent burning or irritation. Teeth whitening in a dental office doesn’t take weeks or months like home kits can, and a patient never has to worry about inadvertently swallowing the solution or whitening strip.

Dental Implants

Missing teeth can cause a variety of problems, including shifting of the remaining teeth, difficulty properly chewing food, headaches, and jaw pain. A dental implant is a permanent solution to missing teeth. After an individual has been cleared by a dentist as a candidate for this type of dental procedure, a dentist will make a tiny incision in the gums and create a small hole in the bone. A titanium post will be inserted and, after several weeks of healing, a patient will return to have their permanent crown attached.

Crowns And Veneers

A crown can fix a tooth that had a large filling or that’s been damaged in an accident. Crowns can usually be completed in one dental appointment and will identical to the other teeth in the mouth. High tech dentistry also offers veneers that can fix the size, shape, discoloration and other flaws on the front of a tooth. These thin layers of porcelain can be attached to the front of a tooth and are minimally invasive.
