Serving patients of Erwin, Jonesborough, and Greeneville TN
Adults often have minor or sometimes significant aspects about their smile that they wish they could change. Gapped, stained, or crooked teeth can affect various areas of your life, from finding a job, going out on dates, or joining the social scene with friends. But thankfully, cosmetic dentistry’s got you covered, or your teeth, that is! At Tusculum Dental Care, we offer treatments from a quick teeth whitening treatment to a complete smile makeover. So today on the blog, we share three examples of cosmetic dentistry in Greeneville and how they could transform your smile.
Teeth whitening is by far the most popular and affordable cosmetic dental treatment. Everyone develops stains on their teeth. Stains are just a result of what we eat and drink, and sometimes, certain lifestyle habits like smoking make teeth staining worse. Tusculum Dental Care offers professional teeth whitening that provides results far superior to what you’d get using whitening treatments you’ve purchased from a store. However, most patients want to do more than whiten their teeth. If you have other cosmetic dental issues, you may choose to pair teeth whitening with other treatments for the best results. To help decrease your risk of teeth stains or help your whitening results last longer, limit staining beverages like coffee, wine, black tea, and soda. Ideally, avoid tobacco use entirely, which benefits your oral health and overall health. Additionally, get your teeth cleaned and checked at the dentist twice a year.
Cosmetic bonding uses a pliable composite material that the dentist sculpts onto your tooth, hardening it with a special light. The material is matched to your exact tooth shade. Then, the dentist shapes, buffs, and polishes the restoration to look as good as new. Many patients choose cosmetic bonding because it’s a quick fix for a slightly broken tooth or other imperfections. The good news is that the dentist completes cosmetic bonding in a single office visit. While bonding looks natural and blends with your natural tooth structure, it may not last as long as its porcelain counterpart, veneers.
Porcelain veneers are hands down a popular cosmetic dental treatment. Veneers are what create perfect teeth and are the secret to a Hollywood smile. For patients desiring a complete smile makeover that addresses multiple smile imperfections, veneers may be the best choice. Veneers use the best quality dental porcelain durable enough to withstand normal chewing and biting and can last for more than a decade with proper care and maintenance. Since the veneers are permanently bonded directly to your teeth, they look seamless and perfect once complete. It may take two to three weeks to receive your results when getting veneers, although it’s well worth the wait! Because in the end, you’ll have a perfect smile.
