A white and appealing smile bolsters your self-confidence and serves you well in business as well as social settings. Unfortunately, there are several different things that can have an adverse effect on the appearance of your smile. Here at JP Dental and Implant Center, Dr. John P. Poovey offers a wide range of cosmetic dental enhancements. The specific imperfections you need addressed will directly dictate the option he recommends.
Many people suffering from a dull, yellow smile will contact Dr. John P. Poovey to administer a dental bleaching treatment. Afterward, you can maintain your white smile by using whitening toothpaste or whitening strips. You might also want to limit your consumption of dark foods and beverages.
Dental veneers are porcelain shells that are designed to improve the appearance of teeth that are suffering from multiple cosmetic imperfections. This might be chips, stains, mismatched fillings, or other cosmetic imperfections. Dental veneers are custom made in a dental lab out of a porcelain shell that will fit over the faces of the teeth in your smile. Once they are installed, they will look exactly like natural tooth enamel. The porcelain material will not be as receptive to stains as natural tooth enamel. This helps to maintain your white smile going forward.
Should you only need to cosmetically improve the appearance of one or two teeth in your smile, Dr. John P. Poovey might recommend a porcelain dental crown restoration.
