Get Porcelain Laminates for a Total Smile Makeover
Porcelain laminates are widely preferred by many of our patients in and around Fayetteville, NC because they address a great number of tooth imperfections. A laminate is actually a very thin shell made of porcelain, placed on the front side of a tooth through bonding. Before porcelain laminates are bonded, the tooth is prepared by removing a few millimeters of its enamel. This is essential so the laminates do not protrude or appear unnatural once bonded onto the teeth. Since laminates are designed to cover your teeth, they effectively mask a wide range of cosmetic flaws. Chips, cracks, discoloration, and worn-down teeth remain hidden. Laminates can also be used to fill in gaps and correct tooth misalignment. Thus, they’re known in cosmetic dentistry as your versatile, all-around dental treatment.
Teeth Whitening for Sparkling, White Teeth
Teeth whitening is a great way to brighten the shade of natural tooth enamel. It can be performed in our office or in the comfort of your own home. In-office treatment involves the application of bleaching gel to your teeth by a dental professional. What’s great about this treatment is that the results are very effective because the dentist uses high grade bleaching products. These high quality bleaching gels are exclusively available to dentists because they supervise the entire treatment. In-office bleaching provides immediate results, so you basically come out of our practice with your new, bright smile.
At-home treatment is a teeth whitening option performed independently by the patient. The dentist takes your dental impression and then sends this to the dental lab that will fabricate your custom bleaching trays. Once these trays are ready, this will be given to the patient along with a bleaching gel. The patient is instructed to apply the gel in his custom tray and then wear the tray for long hours every day.
Custom bleaching trays are made of clear, flexible plastic; hence, they are comfortable to use. Most patients prefer to use their trays during sleep. However, you can choose to wear yours during the day. You can wear your custom bleaching tray at a time that’s most convenient for you. With daily use at the prescribed number of hours, you will achieve bright, white teeth in as little as 2 weeks.
