If you’re hoping to correct several dental flaws at once, porcelain veneers are an excellent cosmetic option. These restorations are crafted from similar materials as metal-free dental crowns, but they’re designed to be extremely thin in nature – thin enough that they can cover just the front surfaces of teeth in a natural fashion instead of the entire tooth. Once the veneer is secured in place, it projects an imperfection-free appearance while still feeling and functioning like your true smile.
So you’ve learned that you need a new dental crown to repair a damaged tooth, but you’re worried about the cosmetic ramifications of having a noticeably unnatural addition to your smile. Thankfully, metal-free restorative work from Windermere Center for Dentistry provides the best of both worlds to patients in need: lasting health benefits and seamless aesthetic quality. The tooth-colored materials we use for your new crown, inlay, onlay, or bridge are so lifelike that they have the same translucent, reflective qualities as natural enamel – and they’re just as durable, too!
When you have a small dental flaw that weighs heavy on your self-confidence, direct bonding is a fast and cost-effective treatment option that may be able to correct the problem. The procedure only takes a single appointment in most cases; Dr. Rapport will apply tooth-colored composite resin to the affected tooth and sculpt it carefully into a shape that covers the problem and blends in beautifully with the rest of your smile.
Many patients dream of a straighter smile, but they understandably balk at the idea of wearing juvenile metal braces. At our practice, there’s an alternative that’s sure to bring a smile to your face – Invisalign. Instead of traditional wires and brackets, the Invisalign system consists of clear aligners, each one representing a different stage of your smile’s improvement. The patient simply wears each aligner and switches them out for the next one as directed. While worn, the aligners are barely noticeable, which means you can continue to enjoy life to the fullest throughout treatment.
Are your confident teeth plagued by discoloration and staining? These cosmetic issues can happen for a number of reasons over time, from a diet filled with coffee and wine to simple old age. Whatever the reasons are, Dr. Rapport is here to help. Our team offers in-practice whitening, which can lighten your smile by several shades over the course of a single appointment – no tedious waiting required!
If you’d prefer to whiten your teeth at a more gradual pace, at-home whitening kits are also available here in for patients in need. Our staff will provide you with the high-grade whitening gel and customized oral trays you need; your job is then to wear the two components together for a recommended amount of time each day – whenever your personal schedule allows. After a few weeks of diligent use, you should notice beautiful improvements.
Sometimes, your teeth aren’t actually what is holding you back from having a smile you can feel proud of – it’s the gum tissue underneath them! If the gum line is noticeably uneven or covering too much healthy tooth structure, aesthetic gum recontouring could be the answer to the more beautiful appearance you’ve been dreaming of. We’ll use our state-of-the-art soft tissue laser to sculpt the gum line into a more precise and pleasing shape, removing any excess material safely and comfortably.
