Some of the answers to our most frequently asked questions are below:
What can be done about yellow, dull teeth?
Teeth naturally dull or stain over time. This is because common foods and drinks that we all consume on a daily basis are constantly dulling our smile. Additionally, if you have recently experienced tooth decay, your teeth can lose their bright, white color to plaque and tartar buildup. Fortunately, our doctors at Laurel Smiles Dental Care can treat yellow, dull teeth through our teeth whitening solutions. This treatment involves the use of a bleaching gel placed inside a dental tray that fits securely into your smile, to brighten and lift stains.
Can chipped teeth be repaired?
If you chip or damage your tooth, there are several options for tooth repair. As long as the tooth is not severely damaged, cosmetic restoration is an option. Otherwise, a full tooth replacement might be necessary. Minor damages can be fixed utilizing porcelain veneers, which are custom-made caps that fit over the tops of your teeth. Additionally, tooth bonding, or the use of a tooth-colored resin, can help repair minor tooth damages.
What are my options for achieving a straighter smile?
Patients have more options for straightening their smiles today than they have ever had before. Our office is pleased to provide Invisalign solutions, which provide patients with a discreet orthodontic solution that allows them to avoid metal braces. Invisalign is a process that involves clear, plastic aligners that gradually shift your teeth into a straighter position over time. Additionally, we provide traditional braces as well to meet the needs of patients who have more severe orthodontic issues. Depending on the current state of your smile, your dentist will provide you with the best treatment to meet your needs.
