A beautiful smile can brighten your life every day – both professionally and socially. And unlike plastic surgery, cosmetic dentistry at Gastonia Family Dentistry isn’t a major operation. Imagine coming in for a single appointment or two with our doctors, and emerging with the smile you’ve always wanted. No pain, no strain, no time taken away from your busy life. The results are immediate and dramatic.
We offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry services to brighten, whiten, repair and restore your teeth:
Professional Teeth Whitening
Even the most dazzling smiles can gradually fade over time. Smoking or drinking coffee, soda, tea or red wine can also darken or discolor your teeth. Fortunately, Gastonia Family Dentistry offers a number of in-office and at-home whitening treatments to give you a noticeably whiter, brighter smile.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
A simple procedure that can be completed in a single visit, dental bonding involves applying a strong, tooth-colored material to the surface of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or have gaps between them. Dental bonding can also be used to fill in gaps between teeth.
Like dental bonding, dental veneers are used to improve the appearance of teeth that are crooked, chipped, broken, misshapen, discolored or unevenly spaced. Less prone to staining from tea, coffee or smoking, they provide a natural look that lasts for a long time.
Dental veneers don’t cover the entire tooth the way a crown does. A custom-made porcelain shell that is very thin but extremely durable, it’s cemented to the front of the tooth.
Porcelain Crowns and Inlays
Even the strongest teeth can sometimes break under pressure. By covering the severely damaged, discolored, chipped or cracked tooth, dental crowns can restore their shape, size, strength and appearance. Dental crowns can also do everything from keeping teeth weakened by decay from coming apart to holding bridges in place. Unlike many dentists, we give you several options to choose from, including all ceramic dental crowns.
Bridges for Missing Teeth
Dental bridges span the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap, and a connector in between. These false teeth are called pontics, and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.
