Are you happy with your smile? If you're like most people, there's probably at least one thing you'd like to change if you could. Thanks to power bleaching, veneers, same-day crowns and other cosmetic dental procedures, improving your smile has never been easier. Our Hollywood, FL, cosmetic dentists, Drs. Stephen and Blake Parker of Parker Dentistry, can discuss several smile-changing treatments with you.
Teeth whitening eliminates stains that dull your tooth enamel. Whitening is accomplished by applying hydrogen peroxide, a natural whitener to your teeth. The whitener breaks apart dark pigments left behind by coffee, soft drinks, and other beverages and foods, eliminating stains. Our patients can choose from Zoom Whitening or Nite White and Day bleaching systems. At-home whitening kits are also available.
CEREC same-day crowns
Crowns slip over teeth, effectively concealing a range of imperfections, such as crooked or oddly shaped teeth, cracks, and discolorations. The restorations also add a little length to teeth that are too short. Although receiving a crown once required two appointments and the use of a temporary crown for a few weeks, CEREC same-day crowns offer a more convenient option. In just one visit, your tooth will be prepared and you'll receive your new permanent crown. We design your new crown from a digital impression of your mouth, then immediately fabricate it using our in-office milling machine.
If a flaw only affects the front surface of a tooth, a veneer may be a better choice than a crown. Thin porcelain veneers are attached to the fronts of teeth with dental cement. They're often used to hide discolorations, chips, cracks, and bumpy surfaces, but also offer an effective way to lengthen short teeth or close gaps between teeth. Because stain-resistant veneers are available in many shades of white, they provide a longer-lasting alternative to bleaching.
Wearing wire braces isn't the only way to straighten your teeth. The Invisalign system uses clear, removable aligner trays that gently realign teeth. Invisalign can improve your appearance if you have crooked teeth, spacing issues, or bite problems. You'll wear the trays for 20-22 hours per day and take them out when you eat or brush your teeth.
