Feeling confident in your smile can do wonders for your self-esteem, and it can be tough to feel your best if you aren't proud of the appearance of your teeth.
Thankfully, cosmetic dentistry procedures can help you get the smile that you're looking for. At Carolina Dental Care, Dr. Andrew Spiguzza, an expert in cosmetic, general, and preventative dentistry, leads a team of dedicated dental professionals who can improve and enhance your natural smile. Whether you're in need of a full smile restoration or you're simply looking to lighten up your teeth, we've got you covered.
Some of our cosmetic dental procedures include:
Dental Bonding: This procedure can cover gaps between the teeth, correct the appearance of chipped or misshapen teeth, and cover dental stains. Your dentist will simply apply a thin layer of bonding material that matches your tooth, then polish the layer until smooth.
Dental Bridges: If you're missing teeth and don't feel comfortable with your smile, you're not alone. Dental bridges can help restore your smile by filling in the gaps between your teeth. A dental bridge isn't just about looking great--it can also help to protect your other teeth, improve your speech, and bring back your ability to eat normally.
Dental Crowns: A dental crown is a composite material that's placed on the chewing surface of your tooth after it's been cracked or broken. A crown can also be used to cover a large filling.
Dentures: Aesthetic dentures have come a long way in recent years and are indistinguishable from natural teeth. Your tooth color, shape, and size will be customized to create a look that will help you feel confident each time you smile.
In-Office Teeth Whitening: If coffee, tea, smoking, or the aging process has taken a toll on your teeth over the years, in-office teeth whitening can help restore your smile to its original brightness. Your teeth whitening process will take place over a series of one-hour appointments. Your dentist will also talk with you about foods and drinks that you should consider avoiding in order to maintain your results for as long as possible.
An important note: let your dentist know if you've also been using whitening products at home, as they may advise you to stop until you've completed your in-office treatments to avoid unnecessary tooth sensitivity.
Veneers: These thin, tooth-colored ceramic shells are placed on top of the tooth's surface, creating a white, even smile. In addition to creating a white, uniform appearance, veneers can also cover issues, including chipped teeth, spaces between the teeth, and crooked teeth. Some veneers are removable, but most are firmly attached to the teeth. Modern veneers can last for up to two decades.
