How a General Dentist Can Help With the Appearance of Your Teeth

How a General Dentist Can Help With the Appearance of Your Teeth from Dazzling Smile Dental Group in Bayside, NYYour general dentist understands the value of your teeth and their appearance. Over time, your teeth may change color, shape, or stability. Proper treatments can help you regain the optimal look of your teeth. If you want to find out how your general dentist can help, here are the details.

Veneers and dental bonding

These two treatments can correct the appearance of teeth. Porcelain veneers are quick and permanent enhancements. The general dentist will roughen the surface of the patient’s teeth and apply the luting cement to the surfaces. Then, the dentist will place the porcelain veneers on the front surfaces of the teeth. A curing light will harden the cement right away. The shells will cover any imperfection of the patient’s teeth.

Dental bonding can fill chips and cracks in teeth. This restoration can also cover dental staining and lighten teeth. The general dentist will paint the bonding solution to the patient’s teeth. Then, the dentist will place the composite resin material and shape it onto the teeth. A curing light will harden the material, allowing the dentist to shape and polish it.

Teeth whitening

Smoking, drinking staining beverages, and eating sweet foods can stain teeth. Poor oral care can make this worse over time. A general dentist can whiten and brighten teeth with an in-office teeth-whitening treatment. The general dentist will use a stronger percentage of bleach at levels not harmful to the patient. Through this cosmetic treatment, the patient can leave the clinic with whiter teeth.

Enamel shaping

Some patients have overlapping or crooked teeth. This involves shaving down the teeth covering their neighboring teeth. It can also include reshaping teeth with irregular sizes and shapes. The general dentist will use dental bonding to fill spaces and cracks. This treatment needs dental bonding. It can show quick results after one or two dental visits.

Dental implants

This permanent restoration involves screwing titanium rods into the patient’s jawbone. Then, the general dentist will take impressions of the patient’s teeth. This will allow the dental lab to create dental crowns for the patient. It takes four to six months to complete this restoration.

Dental crowns

The general dentist can also suggest a dental crown to cover severe decay or a large break. These restorations are often porcelain because this material blends with the neighboring natural teeth. Other materials are resin and acrylic. Some dental practices can provide the crown in one appointment. Most still need two appointments to complete the procedure. Proper care and maintenance will make the crowns last for up to 15 years.
