For example, there are various reasons for discoloration. Not everyone will experience the same results with a generic approach. That’s why it’s important to go to a cosmetic dentist for any teeth whitening procedure. We know what it takes to get the best results possible with safe, effective techniques.
Veneers are about the same size and thickness as contact lenses. Custom made from thin layers of ideally shaded porcelain, veneers create an ideal shape and color when bonded onto the natural tooth. Veneers are a great option for teeth that are chipped, internally discolored, eroded, abraded, misaligned, or misshapen. They can also be used to close uneven spaces and gaps without braces.
Crowns are an invaluable way to rehabilitate and beautify teeth. They can even be used to help whole smiles that have been damaged by attrition, fracture, tooth decay, root canal procedure, failed older restorations, or an unstable bite. The advantage of using solid or layered ceramic is that the crowns can be life-like in color and translucency. The crown will mimic the natural teeth or will be transformed to achieve an enhancement beyond the prior appearance.
When a filling is called for, tooth-colored (white) fillings are a safe and attractive alternative to the blighted look of metal amalgam fillings. White fillings, made of a modern, light, composite material, are applied and bonded as soft putty that is activated by a light wand to solidify and replicate a beautiful natural tooth. The technology used to make the composite material for tooth-colored fillings means that when adhered correctly, the composite is a durable alternative to the older, unsightly choices.
Since tooth-colored fillings are made to match or improve the color of your teeth, Dr. Probst can now restore the true health and beauty of your tooth. Your inner spirit will shine forth with new found confidence.
