Teeth whitening is always a popular option. After all, who doesn’t want a whiter smile? We can help remove stains from tobacco, red wine, coffee, and more. It can be a simple in-office technique or you can use custom-fit trays in the comfort of your own home at a recommended pace.
Many people have discolored teeth. There are a lot of reasons why this is the case, yet a person's diet is often to blame. Red wine or coffee, for example, can stain the teeth. Smoking can also cause considerable discoloration. Another contributing factor is the lack of proper and regular oral hygiene habits. No matter what applies to you, if your teeth appear stained or turned yellow, this is not something you simply have to accept. Teeth whitening can help you to restore your teeth back to a beautiful, pearly white state. In fact, teeth whitening can make your teeth look better than they ever have, which is why this procedure has become so popular.
As the demand for teeth whitening has increased, there are now a lot of teeth whitening products available in stores. These products are not as effective as the service provided by an experienced dentist. Bleaching is a straightforward whitening procedure, yet it is one that needs to be carried out by someone who has experience in the industry like Dr. Weyneth. If it is done incorrectly, it can cause damage to your gums, lips, and teeth.
When you have professional teeth whitening carried out, you can expect to see a difference in the color of your teeth in around four weeks. You will typically make a few visits to our office, whereby a gumshield will be fitted, and the right strength of the whitening agent will be applied. You will find that you usually then have to continue the treatment at home. You will be given a milder version to help you do so. This makes sure that the whitening process is continued. You will need to complete the treatment and stick to the instructions Dr. Weyneth gives you.
Another cosmetic dentistry service that we provide is lumineers. These are tooth-colored sheets that will fit entirely over the front of your teeth. These types of veneers have been made using thin porcelain, which can be matched to perfection to your surrounding teeth. Unlike traditional veneers, which can be thick and requires permanent alteration of surrounding tooth structure, these veneers have been designed digitally, so that they are ultra-thin. The difference is remarkable. To understand the thickness of lumineers, they are comparable with typical contact lenses. This is so they can blend in with your smile seamlessly by being placed precisely over your teeth.
Several different cosmetic problems can be rectified with lumineers. You can use them to cover a chipped or cracked tooth completely. They can also be used to cover even the darkest of discolorations to your teeth because they can be made from any color. Therefore, if your teeth are yellow or stained because of years drinking wine and coffee, smoking cigarettes, taking specific medications, or because of your age, you can achieve a beautiful, white smile with lumineers.
As mentioned, we also offer teeth whitening to help you achieve a pearly white smile. If you are unsure regarding what option to go for, please contact us for a consultation. We will discuss your goals and make a recommendation regarding the best service for you. If you have dark, deep stains, lumineers could be perfect because they correct internal, deep stains that teeth whitening can't. These veneers can also be used to mask dental imperfections as well. This means they can be used for correcting overlapping, chipped, gapped, or misaligned teeth.
So, how do lumineers work? When you book an appointment, we will assess your teeth and provide you with a bespoke treatment plan. We will make sure you are aware of all of the options available to you, as you may decide to opt for a different cosmetic treatment. If you do decide to go for lumineers, we will create a custom mold of your teeth so that they can be created. The veneers will then be created in a laboratory, ensuring they are perfect for your teeth.
If crooked teeth are the bane of your mouth’s existence, then you may want to consider Invisalign. These are the braces of the 21st century and are leaps and bounds ahead of the old metal tragedies. They are clear, inconspicuous, and much more comfortable than the old kind. A series of discreet trays will gradually move your teeth back in line, your bite back to its intended position, or remedy that overcrowded set of teeth. These are very simple to use and are low maintenance. When using this option, your own oral hygiene routine is very important, so be ready to commit to brushing, flossing, and wearing these 22 hours a day.
A lot of people want to have straighter teeth. However, they think that their only option is to have ugly metal braces, which are uncomfortable and conspicuous. Nevertheless, dentistry work has advanced significantly over the years, and there are now plenty of other options available to you. One of the best options is Invisalign. For those who are unaware, Invisalign aligners are pretty much invisible. They are custom made to suit your teeth, and they do not include any metal. They come in several trays that will shift your teeth into place gradually. Each tray will be created so that the teeth are a little bit straighter than the past tray. With every tray, your teeth are going to move up to 0.25 mm. They will move your teeth into their ideal positions slowly but effectively. All you need to do is pop the trays in, and you are ready to go. There will be no unsightly brackets, and you will feel completely comfortable too.
Aside from helping you to achieve beautifully straight teeth, many benefits are associated with Invisalign. Firstly, they do not detract from your smile or face, as they are entirely transparent. They are also a lot more comfortable, as they are made from smooth plastic. In addition to this, Invisalign is a lot more hygienic, as you can remove the trays whenever you want to brush your teeth. You also won't need to see Dr. Weyneth as often as you would with traditional braces. You will only need to maintain your Invisalign every six weeks on average. You also won't have any restrictions when it comes to eating whatever food you'd like to enjoy.
For bigger fixes, there are dental implants. Our office is on the cutting edge of dental implants that can replace entire teeth permanently! Be sure to ask about getting a preview of your future smile with dental implants using our smile technology.
Another dental treatment that we can provide is dental implants. Dental implants are designed to replace one of your teeth or several of them. You should think of dental implants like artificial roots, which support a crown. They are similar in shape to screws. The procedure involves placing the dental implants into your jawbone, which will bond the implant with your natural bone. They become a stable base so that you have the support needed for crowns, otherwise known as artificial teeth.
Some different benefits are associated with this treatment, including the fact that your gum and bone will be preserved. No other treatment will maintain gum and bone tissue. Your healthy teeth are also going to be protected through the distribution of biting forces. You will also benefit from a beautiful smile, as you will not experience bite collapse, nor will your teeth shift into gaps. If you would like to find out more about dental implants or you are ready to book an appointment, all you need to do is give us a call today for more information.
Previously, receiving a crown meant multiple visits to your dental office and wearing a temporary crown for weeks until your permanent crown was made. However, 3D imaging technology and the invention of CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) have changed all of that!
When it comes to repairing heavily filled, decayed, broken, or cracked teeth, all-white porcelain crowns can be the best option. A crown will fully cover the tooth or teeth that are damaged above the gum line, meaning they are protected too. The color will be matched to your own teeth, ensuring you end up with a beautiful smile that also looks natural as well. Not only do they look like natural teeth, but they feel like natural teeth as well.
There are some different reasons why you may need to see us for this sort of treatment. For instance, if you have experienced significant decay on one of your teeth. There may not be enough tooth structure left to inlay the tooth or support a filling and maintain functionality. This treatment is right when a large portion of a tooth is broken away, and traditional composite bonding techniques cannot be used to build it up.
Of course, one of the main reasons to get this treatment is for cosmetic purposes. You can enhance the aesthetics of your smile if you decide to go for porcelain cosmetic crowns. If your diet includes a lot of sugary and carbonated drinks, acid erosion can reduce your teeth, whereby having a crown fitted is the only option. A crown is also often used after a root canal treatment in order to strengthen the tooth. These are just some of the scenarios that may mean that getting a crown fitted is the best option for you. If you have any questions or you would like to book an appointment, please give us a call for more information.
Unattractive silver fillings can now be replaced by tooth colored fillings designed to match the color of your teeth! Be proud of your smile and show of those beautiful teeth without the embarassing old fillings that make you feel uncomfortable to smile.
If you were able to have fillings that were the same color as the natural color of your teeth, so nobody could notice them, you would go down this route, right? Exceptionally few people choose to have metal fillings for cosmetic reasons. They would rather have a filling that didn't even look like a filling! That is precisely what you can expect when you book an appointment at our dental clinic for this service. We have many years of experience when it comes to providing tooth-colored restorations, which are long-lasting, reliable, and safe.
