4 Cosmetic Dentistry Options for a More Radiant Smile

4 Cosmetic Dentistry Options for a More Radiant Smile

Your teeth are naturally strong, but it’s no secret that they’re subjected to a lot of wear-and-tear during your life. Maybe your favorite foods and drinks have left your teeth looking dingy. Or maybe you’re bothered by chips, cracks, or unsightly restorations when you look in the mirror.

Don’t let cosmetic imperfections and natural deterioration take your confidence down, too. Louis A. Russell, Jr., DDS, and our team at Russell Family Dentistry specialize in the latest cosmetic dentistry techniques for radiant smiles.

 If there’s something you don’t like about the way your teeth look, you’ve come to the right place. Here are four of our most popular cosmetic procedures.

1. Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is consistently one of the most-requested cosmetic dental procedures, and it’s easy to understand why. Professional whitening can transform the look of your smile with just one visit to our office, and it’s completely noninvasive.

Many common foods, drinks, and habits can stain your teeth over time. Plenty of over-the-counter toothpaste, whitening strips, and other products promise to whiten teeth, but they’re no match for professional-grade, in-office whitening.

If you want brighter teeth, ask our team about teeth whitening. Dr. Russel works with you to select a target shade and whitening treatment to help you reach your goals.

2. Porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers are rapidly growing in popularity because they can give you a picture-perfect smile without the need for invasive restorations or orthodontic treatments. Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are custom-designed to any shape and affixed to the fronts of your natural teeth to cover a number of smile flaws.

Dr. Russell uses porcelain veneers because they mimic the look of natural enamel and they’re naturally stain-resistant. Veneers can improve cosmetic concerns such as tooth gaps, tough stains, crooked teeth, or irregularly shaped teeth.

Veneers can last eight years or longer with proper care. Talk to Dr. Russell and our team to find out if veneers could be a solution for your smile.

3. Fillings and crowns

Dental fillings are a common treatment option for cavities and decay. But if you have silver amalgam fillings, you know they can be unsightly and detract from your smile.

Dr. Russell and our team specialize in tooth-colored fillings. Whether you want old fillings replaced or you need new ones, tooth-colored fillings offer a virtually invisible solution.

Dental crowns are custom-made to cover the entire surface of a tooth. Crowns are a popular restoration procedure that have cosmetic benefits, too. They add strength to damaged teeth, and they can be used to reshape an irregular tooth or improve the look of a discolored tooth.

4. Dental implants

Missing teeth can seriously impact your confidence, your smile, and your oral health. And if you’re among the millions of Americans with a missing tooth, you could be a candidate for a dental implant.

Implants are permanent artificial teeth that match your natural teeth, down to the “root.” Dr. Russell surgically places an implant post in your jaw and tops it with a custom crown that fits seamlessly into your smile.
