Porcelain veneers are a kind of cover that’s placed on the front of the tooth to cover cosmetic damage. Veneers only cover the front of the tooth, but by hiding the damage underneath, veneers can help restore your smile and make your teeth look natural, straight, and healthy. Veneers are a practical solution for someone who wants to achieve a healthy, beautiful smile quickly. If you are interested in Veneers in Owensboro, KY, contact our office today.
Zoom II Whitening
Zoom II Whitening has been featured on Extreme Makeover as the revolutionary process that has allowed people suffering from tooth enamel stains to lighten their teeth and eliminate discolorations. Whether your teeth are stained from tea, cola, coffee, red wine or smoking, the Zoom process can help your teeth look whiter, younger and more attractive. Zoom uses the chairside lamp, an advanced technology that accelerates the bleaching process and improves whitening over many other procedures.
If your teeth are damaged or decayed, cracked or chipped, a bonding procedure can help improve the shape of your teeth. Bonding is a durable plastic material that is applied to the tooth, over its outer surface. Once the bonding is cured and hardened, it becomes the outer surface of the tooth. Bonding can restore the shape and appearance of your teeth to make them look natural, healthy and straight.
If you suffer from a small defect in your teeth, like a chip on the top of your tooth, recontouring can help make the shape of your teeth appear more in-line with your other teeth. Recontouring is also used to fix “pointy” teeth to make them look rounded and consistent. This procedure can restore harmony and balance to your smile if damage is done to one tooth.
Dentures or Partials
When teeth become damaged enough, dentures or partials present a practical solution for tooth replacement. Dentures are used to replace the full mouth of teeth, while partials replace only some of the teeth, while leaving other natural teeth in place. Your Owensboro dentist can help you decide whether dentures or partials are right for your needs.
Full-Mouth Total Tooth Replacement
Full-mouth total tooth replacement is a denture-alternative for those with a healthy jaw. Full-mouth total tooth replacement involves replacing the teeth with implants, which take the place of natural teeth. Implants are cared for in a manner similar to natural teeth, and unlike dentures, are never removed from the mouth.
A dental implant is a single tooth replacement. Part of the implant is surgically implanted in the jaw of the patient, then a cap that looks like a tooth is placed on top. Implants look just like natural teeth, so when you have a dental implant, it’s impossible to tell the difference.
A dental crown is a cap that is placed on a tooth that has been shaved down just enough so that a cap will fit on top. Dental crowns can help restore a tooth that has been badly damaged, so that the damage is not visible. Crowns also strengthen weakened teeth.
