Teeth whitening treatments have quickly become the most popular cosmetic dental treatment performed by cosmetic dentists all across the U.S. One look at the whiter, brighter smiles offered by teeth whitening treatments, and it’s easy to understand why.
A lifetime of eating enamel-staining foods and drinks like tomatoes, blackberries, red and white wine, tea, soy sauce, BBQ sauce and coffee can cause even the healthiest smile to lose a little of its luster. The simple, safe and effective teeth whitening treatments offered by Nocona cosmetic dentist Dr. Benjamin Anderson can make your smile several shades lighter after just one week! Depending on your preference, Dr. Anderson can lighten only your lower or upper teeth or both.
Dr. Anderson will provide you with a special bleaching agent that you place in the clear whitening trays you wear over the surface of your teeth. The highly effective compound will strip stains from the surface of your teeth enamel. Once your teeth reach the brightness you prefer, you only need occasional treatments to maintain your brilliant new smile.
Dental bonding places a highly durable resin on the front or back of a patient’s teeth to close any minor gaps, restore decayed teeth to health, correct slightly crooked teeth or lighten any discolorations or stains. Once Dr. Anderson has prepped a tooth for treatment, he will place a bonding resin onto the surface of the tooth. Dr. Anderson will then shape and color the tooth as needed for it to blend seamlessly into your smile.
Dental bonding generally lasts from three to five years before repair become necessary. At Nocona Dental, it typically only takes one dental visit to complete the bonding treatment so your smile regains its form and function.
Porcelain veneers help to repair the appearance of crooked, stained, chipped and uneven teeth using thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front of a patient’s teeth. Due to their ultra-thin nature, dental veneers blend seamlessly into your natural smile, and are highly resistant to the effects of tooth-staining foods and drinks like coffee, tea, tomatoes and wine.
It typically takes three visits for Dr. Anderson to complete the placement of dental veneers. The first visit involves a consultation with Dr. Anderson where an impression of your teeth will be custom-crafted at a lab. The veneers will then be place and bonded to your teeth during the third visit. Dr. Anderson will ensure that your veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains and are bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available.
Brushing and flossing daily will help to protect your dental veneers from breaking down. Patients also need to schedule regular dental checkups and cleanings with your Nocona cosmetic dentist to ensure a bright, healthy smile for years to come.
