Most people spend time getting their bodies in shape for the summer, but what about your smile? Your smile is the first thing people see when they meet you and a great smile conveys positive things to the world. Whether your smile has been impacted by stains or has sustained damage over the years, there are reliable treatments that will restore it to its former glory.
From a simple in-office teeth whitening procedure to porcelain veneers which act as shells attached to your teeth, it’s very likely that we offer a solution to enhance your smile at Dentistry of Nashville.
Brighten your Smile with In-Office Whitening
If you’re a fan of your morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine, then your teeth may have been affected by staining. While this doesn’t harm the teeth, it alters the color of their outer layer, darkening your smile. Fortunately, our Nashville dentists offer a whitening service that can brighten your teeth by several shades.
While over-the-counter teeth whitening kits have grown into a multi-billion-dollar industry, a more potent version is offered at our dental office. Take home trays are easy to use and thorough instructions will be given by our doctors. Proven to whiten your teeth by multiple shades throughout the day, take home whitening kits are an excellent value for those who want to enhance their smile.
Restore Your Smile with Dental Implants
Missing teeth can cause a lot of problems for your mental and physical health. Those with missing teeth don’t smile with as much confidence, and this can affect everything from dating to professional situations. In terms of overall health, missing teeth causes a negative impact to your nutrition, gums, and surrounding teeth. Filling your empty sockets with brand new dental implants will greatly enhance your smile.
While dentures and dental bridges are also designed to replace missing teeth, dental implants are the superior method because they prevent the jawbone from shrinking. Other advantages include completely restored chewing and speaking ability, plus the fact that you don’t have to remove your dental implants. Not to mention, your dental implants appear as a natural looking smile and no one will be able to tell the difference.
Repair Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers
There are a wide variety of reasons why your teeth may have sustained damage. Perhaps it was from that time you tried to carry too many boxes down the stairs on moving day, or maybe when you took an elbow during an intense game of basketball. Whatever your reasons for sustaining damage to them, chipped and cracked teeth cannot always be repaired – but your smile can be. Learn more about how porcelain veneers are used to hide your dental damage and restore a perfect smile.
One all-encompassing treatment that is used to cover up a wide range of dental ailments is the porcelain veneer. Essentially a porcelain shell that gets bonded to each tooth, veneers enable the dentist to hide a massive variety of problems. These include:
- Cracked Teeth
- Stained Teeth
- Crooked Teeth
- Decayed Teeth
- Broken Teeth
- Chipped Teeth
Regardless of the damage sustained to your teeth, a veneer can cover it up with durable, natural-looking material. The result is a realistic looking, completely restored smile that you can be proud of.
