Porcelain veneers can provide readers with the chance to instantly enhance their smile and improve their
confidence. Also, a major benefit of porcelain veneers is that it doesn’t require multiple appointments or
visits for treatment which is convenient for the patient. The question remains why are they right for you?
The Porcelain Veneer Advantage
The major advantage of porcelain veneers is that they offer the patient a cosmetic covering for their teeth.
This covering is beneficial if the patient has teeth that can be treated with other dental options, like braces.
Porcelain Veneers can treat:
 Chipped teeth
 Malformed teeth
 Cratered teeth
 Discolored or stained teeth
Why Porcelain Veneers?
The porcelain veneers offer stain resistance which is unlike other types of veneers. When it comes to
veneers porcelain is the best choice because of its ability to keep its color and also maintain your smile.

Give Your Smile a Makeover

October 9th, 2019 Cosmetic Dentistry 0 comments on “Give Your Smile a Makeover”

Have you ever thought about enhancing your smile? If you have then we at Water Oak Dental Group suggest reviewing our cosmetic dentistry options. Cosmetic dentistry allows you to improve your oral health while allowing you to feel confident with your smile and teeth. There are three major types of cosmetic dentistry procedures: teeth whitening, dental implants, and dental veneers.

Veneers – help resolve numerous issues such as have cracked or crooked teeth, damaged enamel, and even gaps between the teeth. The veneer is applied to the front of each tooth using a dental adhesive to hold it in place. To make sure your veneers look as natural as possible they are customized to fit your individual teeth. You look realistic because they are designed to resemble your teeth.

Teeth whitening – is one of the most common procedures in cosmetic dentistry and is also known as teeth bleaching. This is mainly performed when your teeth become stained from things like foods, beverages, or even smoking. A whitening treatment can be completed in as little as one visit to our office.

Before you undergo this procedure, your teeth should be thoroughly cleaned and removed of all plaque and tartar build-up, so the treatment has a stronger effect. The longevity of the treatment’s’ effects largely depends on your personal oral hygiene, but teeth typically stay whitened for 4-12 months.

Dental implants – can be a permanent solution to replacing lost teeth. This procedure is very safe with more than a 96% success rate. The procedure consists of a titanium screw being surgically placed into your jaw where the missing tooth is. This provides the support for the crown that will then be held in place. Implants are also designed specifically for you in order to match your other teeth, giving you a natural look.

Interested in any of these cosmetic dentistry options?  Schedule an appointment with Dr. David S. Krishingner at our offices in Brevard, North Carolina to learn more and find out what method or procedure works best for you.

Cosmetic dental care offers many different procedures ranging from simple acts like teeth whitening treatments to more complex operations such as gum reshaping. With so many procedures some are more costly than others, this is dependent on your oral needs and desired outcome.

In this article we’ve outlined the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures so you can research them further and compare the differences, to best decide which option is optimal for you.

  1. Composite Resin Bonding -This cosmetic dentistry procedure is used to repair chips, cracks and small gaps within a tooth. The cracks are filled using a natural looking dental composite (a tooth-colored liquid adhesive) and bonding it to the compromised tooth. Its average cost is $350 to $1500 per tooth. The average length of time for the procedure is 45 minutes to one hour.
  2. Teeth Whitening – This is also known as teeth “bleaching”. This procedure helps patients that have stained, yellowed or discolored teeth. The average cost for this procedure is $650.00. Average length of this procedure is one hour.
  3. Veneers – Ideally for patients that cannot receive a tooth whitening procedure. A veneer is a fabricated natural tooth colored porcelain shell that is placed over the patient’s original teeth. The process for placing porcelain veneers generally takes two to three weeks. Costing roughly $925 to $2,500 per tooth
  4. Dental Implants – Typically, the placement of an implant consists of surgically inserting a titanium rod (acting as the artificial root of the tooth) into the jaw. It then fuses to the bone during the process of osseointegration. Recovery time for this procedure is six months and the average cost is $900 and $3,000 per tooth
  5. Invisible braces – These are completely translucent aligners that act as removeable braces to correct crooked teeth, overbites, and widely spaced teeth. The length of time that the braces are worn is about 15 months, sometimes up 24. Cost of these types of braces range from $2,500 to $7,000.

Those are the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures. Most cosmetic dentists tend to offer advanced care. Because of this, you should expect a very comfortable and pain free cosmetic dentistry procedure that will produce attractive and enduring results for you to enjoy and be proud of.
