Dr. Wildern provides cosmetic dentistry patients many options for improving the look and feel of their teeth to accomplish a better and healthier smile.
Nothing is more frustrating than hiding your teeth when you are trying to smile because you don’t want others to see your stained or discolored teeth.
Teeth whitening remains one of the most popular cosmetic procedures used to make teeth whiter, brighter and more attractive. Bleaching can also be used to whiten stained and discolored teeth, or simply to enhance a dull smile. Either way, teeth whitening is a safe and relatively painless procedure that is ideal for most patients.
Tooth colored fillings are made of a blend, or “composite,” of plastic resins and silica fillers. These substances mimic many of the qualities of natural tooth structure, such as wear-resistance and translucency
Patients who do not want fillings in any of their teeth may opt for dental crowns to protect teeth from further decay. Depending on where decay exists on a tooth, applying bonding material and molding the material to cover the decay may also work just as well as using white filling.
Veneers are a widely used cosmetic dental procedure in which we place a covering over the outside, visible area of the tooth. Porcelain veneers are usually only applied to teeth that will be visible when a patient is talking or smiling.
