Nothing shows confidence better than a healthy smile. Even if you’ve been careful with your dental health, you can still wind up with stained or discolored teeth, chips or cracks, or other issues that can affect the look of your teeth. However, with processes like teeth whitening or dental implants in Trenton or Belleville from our caring team, you can see natural-looking improvements right away. Not all options work for everyone. Discuss with your dentist more to learn the best treatments for you. Some of the options include the following:
A brighter smile can make you look younger and help build confidence. There are two basic types of teeth whitening treatment available. With in-office whitening, we use a strong whitening solution and a bright light. Together, these produce immediate results, allowing you to leave our offices with a brighter smile.
Take-home whitening kits work more gradually. You’ll be given a whitening solution that you can apply daily to lighten your teeth over time. The whitening treatment is less intense than what is available in-office, for a gradual change.
Teeth whitening is not a permanent solution but can last several years. Results often do not last as long if you drink coffee, tea or wine or if you smoke. However, protecting your teeth from these common staining issues can keep your smile whiter longer.
Veneers are slim, tooth-shaped shells that are applied over your natural teeth to cover imperfections and improve the appearance of your smile. These can be used to correct issues that include:
- crooked or rotated teeth.
- gaps or spaces between your teeth.
- cracked or chipped teeth.
- teeth that are sharp or oddly shaped.
- broken teeth.
Veneers can typically be completed in as few as two visits. They are custom-matched to your natural teeth in shape and color before being bonded to your teeth. With proper care, they can last a decade or more.
Dental Implants in Trenton
Dental implants are often considered the first choice and standard of care when it comes to restoring damaged or missing teeth. They are strong and stable, and look, fit and feel like your natural teeth once installed.
They are a long-lasting solution that protects the health of your mouth. Other options can lead to bone deterioration and may get in the way of activities like eating, smiling, and speaking. Implants function just like your natural teeth.
We can often perform dental implants in Trenton or Belleville in a single visit. Talk to our dentist to see if they are a good option for you.
