Dr. Jade Thomas and his Port St. Lucie cosmetic dentistry team at Banyan Dental provide several types of cosmetic dental procedures to clients. With years of experience, they are helping patients to smile again. Below are five of the most sought after dental procedures for cosmetic smile makeovers.
- Teeth are an unsightly color due to habits like smoking
- Shape of a tooth or teeth is not perfect
- Hairline fractures on a tooth
- Gaps Between Teeth
Of course, many people seek the help of Dr. Thomas’s team to deal with discoloration issues. Teeth whitening can help remove stains that have slightly penetrated the dentin of the teeth.
Stains can happen when teeth are exposed to smoke or strong pigmented substances like tea, wine, or even some fruits. These foods are not necessarily bad for you. However, in excess or without proper oral care the foods could stain your teeth, but a good cosmetic dentist in Port St. Lucie, Florida should be able to help you.
Crowns are used for severe tooth damage like fractures or cracks that might be causing discomfort or pain. Crowns can last a long time and blend with the natural color of your teeth.
This dental procedure can mask a root canal or tooth decay. Crowns can also help your overall dental health because untreated missing teeth can lead to gingivitis or cause misalignment. Your teeth support each other, and things can go awry when a tooth goes missing.
Of course, there are some who use crowns to reshape a tooth.
A missing tooth can wreck havoc on your health in different ways like the following:
- Speech could be impaired due to a missing tooth
- Digestive issues, because you cannot chew well
- Discomfort, due to the missing tooth
- Might develop self-esteem issues
There is no doubt that a missing tooth is detrimental to your overall health, making dental implants important. An implant does require the installation of a titanium post within your jawbone. This requires careful evaluation of the state of your jawbone, among other things. Dr. Thomas’s team is experienced and can take care of the dental implant for you.
White Composite Fillings
The idea of metal fillings may not seem attractive to some people, and that is okay. Dr. Thomas’s team wants to present you with all the options available to you, like composite white fillings.
Fillings are meant to deal with damage left behind from cavities or other issues that might have caused partial tooth loss. Fillings will cover these gaps and strengthen the over structure of your teeth.
Composite white fillings are usually complete within a few visits but could actually be complete in one day, though this does depend on your situation. The material will match the color of your teeth, which should improve your smile.
