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.

Don't forget--your smile is one of your most valuable personal assets. If it looks deeply stained or chipped, it detracts from how you look and from your self-confidence. Why not show off a beautiful smile with porcelain veneers from your cosmetic dentists at Parker Dentistry in Hollywood, FL? Shell-like covers of fine dental porcelain permanently bonded to the front of healthy teeth, veneers beautify smile aesthetics, giving you a look just right for you.
Why use porcelain veneers?
Drs. Stephen and Blake Parker offer porcelain veneers--also called dental laminates--for patients who have healthy teeth and gums but exhibit enamel defects such as:
- Chips, pits and cracks
- Deep stains which can't respond to professional whitening
- Gaps and mild crowding
- Uneven length and odd shape
Besides creating an bright and even look, veneers strengthen tooth enamel and last for ten years or more. Considered a permanent smile enhancement, veneers resists stains and chips, and they cannot decay. Plus, they are so popular that millions of Americans have use them to improve their smiles.
During a personal consultation with your cosmetic dentist in Hollywood, FL, you can discuss how you'd like to improve your smile. Dr. Parker will evaluate your oral health and what changes he feels could be accomplished with porcelain veneers. With an agreed upon treatment plan in place, expect to receive your veneers in just a couple of visits to Parker Dentistry.
Because you'll need a little extra space in your mouth to accommodate your veneers, Dr. Parker will resurface your teeth, removing about 1/2 millimeter of enamel. Then, he'll take oral impressions and clean your teeth. Dr. Parker also places temporary veneers to keep you comfortable and smiling as the permanent ones are crafted. The impressions go to a dental lab in the area where a skilled technician will sculpt each veneer from color-matched ceramic.
At your next appointment, the dentist removes the temporary veneers and uses a special etching liquid and bonding cement to place the permanent laminates. He'll fit them carefully against your gum tissue to avoid any irritation or sensitivity. Additionally, he colors the bonding cement for a completely natural look. After curing the cement and adjusting the bite, the veneer process is complete.
Caring for porcelain veneers
Expect your dental laminates to last about ten years or more. Just brush and floss carefully as you usually do and see your cosmetic dentist, Dr. Parker and his team every six months for your routine exams and cleanings. Avoid chewing hard foods such as taffy, ice or peanut brittle, and wear a bite guard if you grind your teeth or play sports.

Do you have minor cosmetic flaws in one or more teeth that make you feel self-conscious? Are you looking for a simple cosmetic solution to fix these issues? Our Hollywood, FL, dentist has your back (or rather, your teeth!). Dental bonding is a cosmetic technique in which a tooth-colored resin is applied over certain problem areas. Bonding is able to quickly change the color, size or shape of one or more teeth in often just one visit.
You may be wondering what kinds of issues dental bonding can treat. Since this is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment it won’t be able to fix more serious issues or flaws that affect the health or function of your smile; however, it can be great for filling small gaps between your teeth, recontouring oddly shaped teeth, and covering cracks, chips and discolorations.
It’s also important to keep in mind that dental bonding isn’t meant to revamp your whole smile. If you have multiple teeth that require cosmetic changes then you may be better off considering other options like dental veneers or teeth whitening. When you come in for a consultation we will better be able to determine whether bonding is the right option for you.
What does bonding entail?
This procedure can be performed during your next routine visit. The process is rather simple, actually. Once we choose the right shade of resin for your tooth, we will apply a liquid over the surface of the tooth that will etch and roughen it. This will help the resin stick to the tooth a bit easier.
Then the resin is applied. We will trim and sculpt and readjust the moldable resin until we get the proper shape while also making sure to fully cover your cosmetic flaws. Once we have the look you want, we will use a dental light to harden the resin in place. With the proper maintenance and good oral hygiene, this tooth-colored resin can last many years.
Are you ready to revamp and improve your smile? Then let Parker Dentistry in Hollywood, FL, find out if dental bonding is the best option for you. Schedule an appointment with us today.
