Common Cosmetic Dental Problems

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, your cosmetic dental problems likely include:

  • Discolored teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Teeth with metal fillings
  • Crooked or gapped teeth
  • Short, worn, or cracked teeth
  • Missing teeth

Modern cosmetic dentistry offers us multiple solutions to all these problems.

Exceptional Cosmetic Dental Solutions

Discolored teeth can be easily corrected using tooth whitening. Tooth whitening can remove stains to your teeth, rolling back years on the appearance of your smile. If, however, the whitening you can achieve is limited by the inherent color or thickness of your dental enamel, then you may get better whitening results from porcelain veneers, especially if you have other cosmetic dental problems you want to correct.

Chipped teeth can be restored in one visit using dental bonding. Cosmetic dentist Dr. Jeff Johnston has a deft hand for modeling natural tooth shape in bonding material to give you natural-looking results. For a more permanent and even more attractive appearance, porcelain veneers may be recommended.

Teeth with metal fillings can be made more attractive when the discolored metal fillings are removed and more attractive porcelain inlays or onlays are used instead. Sometimes, your tooth may have too much filling to maintain its structural integrity, and a dental crown may be recommended instead.

Crooked or gapped teeth can be improved using Six month smiles. This cosmetic dentistry solution uses the proven technology of traditional braces in an innovative way to get faster, more reliable results than so-called invisible aligners. Porcelain veneers are another option if you want even faster treatment that also corrects discolored, chipped, or misshapen teeth. Dental bonding offers the fastest, least expensive treatment for gapped teeth, but may not be appropriate in all cases.

Short, worn, or cracked teeth can be built up using either porcelain veneers or dental crowns depending on the amount of structural damage your teeth may have sustained. Using our advanced technology CEREC machine, you can even get your crowns in a day.

Missing teeth can now be replaced with dental implants. This advanced technology replaces your teeth with artificial teeth that require no special care, allow you to eat all your favorite foods, and with proper care can be lifetime restorations, though the crowns atop the implants may need replacing. Dental bridges are another tooth replacement options, along with advanced dentures.
