Dental crowns can modify your smile by repairing or fortifying discolored or damaged teeth. They can encase the existing tooth structure and help to restore the natural appearance of the tooth along with the functionality. Dental crowns may become a necessity after root canal treatment or for supporting a dental bridge.
Porcelain or ceramic that’s tooth-colored to match the rest of your teeth is used to fabricate dental crowns. Metal alloys can also be used to make them with an outer layer of porcelain. Generally, it requires two visits to the dentists’ office to have a crown placed. This does not consider other treatments that may be required like a root canal. You can also have access to CEREC crowns that are offered by this dental facility. The crowns will be fabricated at the dental office and the placements finished on the same day.
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular services sought-after by many despite not having the same health or functional benefits as other treatments. Bleaching gels are used during teeth whitening treatments to remove discoloration from the surfaces of the teeth. You can receive the treatment in-office at the dental facility or take-home kits can also be prepared by the dentist for use over a period.
Take-home kits will be provided with bleaching gels and a tray that must be placed over your teeth for about 30 to 60 minutes. You will be able to witness results after a couple of weeks depending on the kind of whitening you want.
Your mouth will be examined by the dentist during your appointment to determine whether whitening is a suitable option for you. Teeth whitening is unsuitable for some types of discoloration and in such cases, the underlying issue of the problem must be treated initially. It is the reason why talking to a dentist becomes important rather than preferring over-the-counter treatments that are available in abundance.
A dental bridge can be a suitable solution to replace missing teeth. These are false teeth attached between two crowns. The teeth on both sides of the gap must be prepared for the crowns with the bridge bonded in place between them.
Dental bridges are not similar or permanent as dental implants but they can be an appropriate solution if the teeth close to the gaps have fillings that will necessitate the need for crowns. If you want to change your smile by replacing your missing teeth you will receive help from the dentist to understand whether you should prefer bridges, implants, or any other option.
Thin restorations that are placed on the surfaces of the front teeth are known as dental veneers. They may be recommended by your dentist if you have tiny gaps, chips or cracks, slightly crooked teeth or discoloration. Custom-made porcelain veneers can fit over the teeth as an alternative for teeth whitening. The dentist will select the material for the veneer in a shade matching your natural teeth. While veneers are suitable to treat minor issues the dentist may recommend orthodontic treatments if you have complicated issues with alignment in your mouth.
If you are uncertain about what you need or where to begin it is suggested that you discuss your concerns with the dentist at Cupertino Family Dental. You will receive proper advice on how the same-day smile service will help you to correct different types of dental issues.
