At Myers Park Dental Partners, we specialize in several cosmetic services aimed at improving the appearance of your teeth and overall smile. From minor cosmetic changes to full-tooth restorations, we have got you covered!
One of the most common complaints we receive involves the brightness of our patients’ smiles. For this reason, we offer professional teeth whitening treatment. Teeth whitening is one of the most basic and cost-effective ways to improve your smile.
As we get older, our teeth pick up stains from certain foods, drinks, medications, and personal habits. These stains, also known as extrinsic stains, are easy to remove with a bleaching solution. However, many store-bought bleaching products leave people dissatisfied with the results. Because we are trained professionals, we use a bleaching agent with a much higher concentration than store-bought alternatives. Our whitening treatment could make your teeth up to eight shades brighter in just a single appointment!
A dental veneer is a razor-thin shell that is bonded to the front surface of a tooth. Like our dental crowns, our veneers are typically made from porcelain. Veneers can be used to fix teeth that are severely discolored, worn down, chipped or broken, misaligned, uneven, irregularly shaped, or even gapped. During the procedure, we have to remove a small amount of enamel to accommodate the thickness of the veneer. For this reason, the veneer procedure is considered irreversible.
Patients looking for a less-invasive and more cost-effective solution may benefit from dental bonding. Dental bonding involves the application of composite resin, a putty-like material, to the surface of an aesthetically displeasing tooth. For example, dental bonding is an excellent solution for minor chips or cracks. During the procedure, the composite resin will be color-matched to the existing shade of your enamel, making it virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your tooth.
Our teeth get damaged for multiple reasons, including use over time, injuries, tooth decay, and other reasons. As a result, your teeth can lose their size and shape, but fortunately, dental crowns can help resolve this issue. Dental crowns are caps that can be placed on your damaged teeth to restore their appearance, strength, size, and shape. At Myers Park Dental Partners, our dentists Dr. Allen and Dr. Crystal are experienced and skilled to customize dental crowns to match the surrounding teeth.
Dental crowns are an ideal solution to fix damaged teeth and restore their function and look without invasive dental replacement treatment. Dental crowns can also be used with dental implants to fill gaps between the missing teeth. Placing dental crowns requires the right expertise and skills. Dr. Allen and Dr. Crystal at Myers Park Dental Partners ensure that accurate alteration is done to maintain the natural look and uniformity of your teeth.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that completely covers the visible portion of a damaged or decayed tooth. In previous years, a dental crown was fabricated using a gold or silver amalgam. These days, porcelain is usually the material of choice. Porcelain is a ceramic compound that mimics the light-reflective properties of natural enamel. It can also be textured and color-matched to your existing teeth. Thanks to porcelain and other ceramics, crowns can also be used to fix the aesthetics of an unsightly tooth.
Since both crowns and veneers are restorative methods designed to treat dental issues, they are sometimes confused with one another. Crowns protect the entire tooth, while veneers only cover the visible portion of the tooth. The main distinction is in the problems they resolve. Both of them can restore the appearance and health of your teeth. The key to making the best choice is understanding how each option works.
CEREC crowns are also known as same day crowns. These crowns can be fitted into your mouth in just a single sitting. It is quick, efficient, and highly beneficial. It comes in really handy when you are in need of a quick solution and you have absolutely no time to spare.
We offer clear aligners as a discrete alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments, such as braces. Aligner treatment involves a series of trays that gradually move your teeth to a more proper position. We often recommend clear aligners for adult patients who do not want their treatment to get in the way of their personal or professional life.
