Evansville Cosmetic Dentistry
What would you change about your smile if you could? Are you unhappy with the color of your teeth? Do you have chips or other cosmetic damage? Are your teeth too widely spaced or too short?
If the appearance of your teeth causes you to smile with your mouth closed or cover your mouth with your hand when you laugh – or if you feel self-conscious in social settings, it might be time to consider cosmetic dentistry.
Why Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is the right option for fixing esthetic problems with your teeth. Every treatment and procedure we perform here at Reliant Family Dental is done with esthetics in mind, but cosmetic dentistry is done when your teeth are generally healthy but their appearance leaves something to be desired.
Evansville dentist Dr. Meunier is skilled in a variety of popular cosmetic procedures and will work with you to help you get the results you want. We’ll start by examining your teeth and gums and discussing your goals to determine the procedure that will best meet your needs.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are applied to the surface of the teeth to cover a range of imperfections. Veneers can whiten teeth with resistant staining, fix gaps, elongate short teeth, and cover up chips or other damage to the surface of the teeth.
Some types of veneers require that a small amount of enamel be removed while others are placed directly over the top of your teeth. We’ll discuss the advantages of both these varieties to find the one that is right for you.
You should avoid biting your fingernails, chewing on ice, or gnawing on pencils since these habits can damage veneers (as well as your natural enamel!) or even cause them to come loose.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
For smaller repairs, we can apply composite resin bonding. This putty-like material is applied directly to your tooth and then molded to the right shape to fix the problem. We can blend the shade of the bonding material to perfectly match the color of your teeth so that once the material is cured, nobody will ever know the difference.
Both porcelain veneers and bonding have their own advantages, and one of the advantages of bonding is that it can be performed in a single visit.
Our office also offers in-office teeth whitening using the KöR Deep Bleaching system. This option is excellent when staining is your concern and you don’t have any other damage that needs to be repaired.
You can read more about this system on our KöR teeth whitening page.
