A beautiful smile can make all the difference to one’s facial appearance. Imagine getting complimented frequently for your pleasing smile! Feels great, doesn’t it? A specialized branch of dentistry that focuses primarily on improving the aesthetics of one’s smile is called cosmetic dentistry. The procedures can be customized to suit every patients’ condition so that their smile can be beautified.
Dull and discolored teeth can make your smile look quite unattractive. The major causes of teeth staining are smoking, chewing tobacco, eating colored foods that leave a residue on the teeth, frequent consumption of colored beverages, and most importantly, improper oral hygiene. At Stonewall Dental Associates, we offer in-house teeth whitening, at-home whitening using plastic whitening trays, and laser teeth whitening. Our hydrogen peroxide-rich whitening gels provide the best results that last for a long time.
The teeth may sustain external damage when you suffer a hard blow to the mouth, experience a sports-related injury, or due to accidents. Sometimes, the teeth could naturally misshapen, making your smile look nasty. In such cases, dental restorations can be bonded to the teeth to restore them to their ideal strength and contour. Some of the common restorations that we use are veneers, crowns, composite bonding, etc. All these restorations are made from tooth-colored material, which helps you keep them under disguise.
Cavities are the direct result of the microbial activity of thousands of bacteria in the mouth. They get deposited on the teeth in the form of plaque and tartar. When these microbes release acidic substances while feeding on the food debris in the mouth, it could erode the enamel and decay the underlying tissues. If cavities are not treated at the right time, they can grow deeper to infect the dental pulp in the root canal cavity. Hence, we suggest you get them treated and restored before it’s too late. We use an ultrasonic scaling device to remove the decay and a suitable tooth-colored filling to restore the tooth to its ideal contour.
Missing teeth can be restored using ceramic prosthetics that are customized to match their exact appearance. Some of the tooth restorations we offer are dentures, dental bridges, implants, implant-supported bridges, all-on-4 implants, etc. Based on the number of teeth and the various other factors that affect your candidacy, we will suggest the best option to restore it.
Apart from these commonly encountered conditions, we offer treatment for all types of oral diseases and concerns that you have.
