While the health of your smile is always our top priority, its appearance is another matter altogether. Even a tooth that’s largely intact and perfectly functional could still have a severe stain or a minor crack that draws the wrong kind of attention. If there’s a dental flaw that distracts you every time you look in the mirror, Dr. Nguyen can offer a cosmetic solution that will have you grinning confidently in no time! Get in touch with us today to schedule your cosmetic consultation.
Made from stain-resistant porcelain that closely resembles natural enamel, veneers are a very thin type of restoration attached to the front of your teeth. Doing so allows them to hide discoloration, cracks, and teeth that are worn down or irregularly shaped; they can even be used to close small gaps or make minor alignment corrections. Veneers are often the treatment of choice for patients that want to make extensive changes but don’t want to undergo multiple procedures.
Like porcelain veneers, Lumineers® are also thin shells that can be used to hide multiple cosmetic flaws in the smile. The difference is that Lumineers are much thinner. This means we don’t need to remove as much healthy tooth structure to make room for them. As such, there’s no need to wear temporaries while you wait for your Lumineers to be made, and you won’t have to worry about making irreversible changes to your teeth.
Not looking forward to getting a metal crown? At Legacy Dentistry, we can make restorations out of tooth-colored materials and customize them so that they closely resemble your other teeth. A crown made from ceramic or fillings that consist of composite resin can blend in with the rest of your teeth so well that most people won’t even be able to tell the difference. You can even receive a purely cosmetic crown under the right circumstances.
Direct bonding is often the quickest fix for minor cosmetic issues. Applying composite resin directly to the surface of a tooth lets us alter its color, shape, and length. This procedure is very versatile, and unlike veneers, you won’t have to make a second appointment; it can be done in one visit over the course of 30 to 60 minutes. As long as you take good care of your teeth, you can enjoy the improvements made by direct bonding for up to 10 years!
Wish you could have a brighter smile? Our practice uses the Opalescence Boost Teeth Whitening System in order to treat severely darkened enamel. During the in-practice procedure, a special gel is applied to your teeth and left in place for about 15 minutes. After about three or four applications, the ingredients in the gel will have bleached the teeth, resulting in a dramatic improvement in their overall shade. We can also offer a take-home whitening kit if you’d rather have the changes made at home on your own time.
Virtually everyone wants a perfect row of teeth, but some smiles will require a little more attention than others. When there are just too many cosmetic problems to count, we can plan what’s known as a smile makeover. We’ll figure out what treatments would be best for making the desired corrections in your case and appropriately combine them. Rest assured that Dr. Nguyen will always look for the most conservative solutions that will leave you with the brightest smile.
