Cosmetic dentistry includes a number of procedures that take care of the aesthetics of your teeth. It can help fix discoloration, staining or other concerns you have of your teeth to create a beautiful smile. It could also help for some dental problems as well.
Here you’ll find more information about the types of cosmetic dentistry procedures that Gallegos Family Dentistry provides. Along with healthy teeth there is nothing better than a perfect smile and that’s the best place to take care of both.
A dental crown is mostly needed to restore a broken or cracked tooth. It is a cap-like structure placed over the damaged area. They are also used to cover a dental implant or hold a dental bridge in place. Dental crowns are made of ceramic, dental porcelain, composite or porcelain fused to metal.
The average lifespan of a dental crown can be anywhere between 5 and 15 years, it depends on your eating habits, oral hygiene and where the crown is located in your mouth. A crowned tooth doesn’t need special care, the only important thing is to keep good oral hygiene. However, if anything happens to your dental crown or bridge, you should contact our office for instructions until your appointment.
Dental veneers are ultra-thin shells that cover any visible flaws of a tooth. They bond directly to the front surfaces of teeth. Veneers have become very popular due to their simplicity. They are the best choice for easily improving the appearance of your smile. They can also close gaps in your teeth and even them in length. Dental veneers are a preferred choice because they look like natural teeth but better. They can hardly be stained by coffee, tea, or even cigarettes.
Dr. Gallegos can ensure you that your dental veneers are crafted from the highest quality products and bonded with the best material available. Each case is individually designed to match the characteristics of a person’s teeth.
With the proper care, your dental veneers can last for over ten years, to give you that bright and beautiful smile.
Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedure. As the name implies, this technique corrects discoloration in teeth. It is used to thoroughly clean the teeth and eliminate any tartar or plaque. Depending on how bad the discoloration is, a bleaching agent for whitening can be used. This transforms your smile and makes you more confident to show it to the world.
