Think of your favorite movie star or musician’s smile. It is straight, bright, and healthy, isn’t it…at least in most cases. Would you be surprised to know that many Hollywood smiles are the result of makeovers with porcelain veneers and that you can receive the same, wonderful transformation? Porcelain veneers from Cardinal Dental Group are custom-milled for size, shape, and color. Your doctor will design veneers that perfectly accent your smile and facial features. After a little tooth preparation, your doctor will position these thin porcelain restorations on the visible surfaces of your teeth, bonding them into place. In just a couple of visits, you will see a new, vibrant smile in the mirror!
Your teeth may be straight, and they may feel perfectly healthy. But, do they look youthful, bright, and healthy? Sometimes staining and discoloration can steal the luster away from an otherwise healthy smile. Tooth whitening can bring back a smile that you want to show off! A customized, take-home whitening treatment from Cardinal Dental Group can give you a vibrant, confident smile in just a few weeks. We use this whitening technique because it is the most comfortable for patients, and according to university studies, the most effective.
This kit involves a comfortable, custom-fitted tray, similar to a sports mouthguard. Into this tray, you will place a special whitening gel, which the tray holds in place for a short amount of time. Your dentist will give you specific instructions as to the number and duration of your whitening treatment “sessions.” After a single session, you may begin to see improvement, and after a couple of weeks, you will see a completely white smile. Plus, you can maintain your newly white smile with occasional follow-up treatments.
A missing tooth can make you self-conscious when you speak or laugh. Also, the space in your smile can allow your other teeth to shift, which may cause future problems. A porcelain bridge completes your smile in a way that looks and feels completely natural by using the teeth on either side of the gap as the supportive structure. After tooth preparation, your Cardinal Dental Group dentist will position two customized porcelain crowns on the neighboring teeth. Between these crowns, your dentist will suspend a porcelain restoration. The three elements will work together to restore your beautifully functioning smile, and the results will be virtually undetectable from your other natural teeth.
A custom-milled porcelain crown, designed by Dr. Seaberg or Dr. Onemany, could be your solution for a broken, discolored, or misshapen tooth. Crowns are also an option when a tooth has significant decay and when a filling is no longer an option. Your crown will look and feel completely natural and will match your natural teeth perfectly. After tooth preparation, your dentist will place your crown, ensuring your bite aligns perfectly. With proper care, your crown will last for years and will continue to look amazing!
If you need a filling for a cavity or if you would like to replace your silver fillings with a more natural material, tooth-colored fillings are your treatment of choice. Thankfully, advances in dentistry have made it possible for you to have tooth-colored fillings that are virtually invisible. Tooth-colored fillings are made from a durable, porcelain-based resin that can be shaded to match your natural tooth color and sculpted to return your tooth to its natural shape. It provides a trustworthy seal, which guards the interior structure of your tooth against future decay. You can even choose to have your old silver fillings replaced with this modern alternative.
Cosmetic dental bonding is the perfect solution for you if you have chipped or misshapen teeth that need attention. This process involves a porcelain-based resin that can be artistically sculpted to give your teeth a more appealing appearance. Your dentist can also shade the bonding material to match your natural tooth color, and where applicable, to help conceal any stains or discoloration. You will love the way your smile results look!
Perhaps you have straight, white, healthy teeth, but you still feel there is something about your smile that is amiss. Do you see a lot of gum tissue when you smile? Excess gum tissue can take the attention off of your healthy, white teeth and make you feel self-conscious when you smile or laugh. However, gentle dental treatment lasers and other instruments have made it possible for you to have your gum tissue reshaped to give your entire smile a more balanced appearance. If you think a little gentle gum contouring might help your smile, ask for more details at your next visit to Cardinal Dental Group.
