More on Veneers:
Veneers resurface an individual's damaged teeth. The dentist removes some enamel, an irreversible process, and places the veneers, made out of thin porcelain, on the surface of your teeth.
Veneers help with stained, or discolored teeth, and mishappened teeth (crooked or chipped teeth).
More on Dental Implants:
Dental implants consist of a titanium post surgically inserted into your jaws to replace missing tooth root. It creates stability, strength and prevents the weakening and shrinkage of your jawbone. The dentist then seals your gums and allows 3 to 6 months for osseointegration to occur. Your Cary dentist then re-opens the area above the titanium post, inserts a screw, places an abutment above the screw and secures a crown on top that matches the rest of your teeth.
Some advantages of dental implants include:
- Restoring one tooth, a few teeth or all of your teeth.
- The dental implants can last a lifetime.
- Restoring your bite and chewing function.
- Unlike dentures, dental implants are fixed in place and don't fall out of place.
More on Tooth Contouring and Reshaping:
Contouring and reshaping your teeth are simple, cosmetic procedures that will save you plenty of time and money, and give you a more confident smile.
They help with a variety of problems:
- pits and/or grooves in enamel
- cracked or fractured
- overlapping or crowded teeth
More on Crowns:
Crowns look like caps and are made of porcelain. Your dentist takes an impression of your teeth and sends them to a lab where custom crowns are made just for you. In the meantime though, you're given a temporary crown. The dental crown reinforces the tooth and allows it to withstand various degrees of pressure, meaning you can enjoy eating without the worry of ruining your tooth. Crowns are used for several procedures, like attaching bridges, covering dental implants and covering stained, or discolored teeth.
