More than ever, a beautiful smile opens doors. Many choices are available to resolve crooked, stained, or misshapen teeth. From tooth-colored fillings to nonmetal crowns and bridges; bonding to whitening and veneers, Dr. Skrobanek can give you options to maximize your potential for a gorgeous, door-opening smile.
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front side of teeth. They are an option for correcting stained, chipped, decayed or crooked teeth. A small amount of your existing tooth structure is removed to accommodate for the very thin, yet strong porcelain veneer. For many people with cosmetic issues only, veneers are an appealing option with minimal maintenance required.
Enamel Shaping (Contouring) One of the few instant cosmetic dentistry treatments is tooth reshaping, or contouring. A procedure to correct chipped or cracked teeth, crooked teeth, even overlapping teeth during one appointment.
Under certain circumstances, dental contouring can be a substitute for braces and is used to slightly alter the shape, length or position of your teeth. Dr. Skrobanek can create a beautiful for you, with virtually no discomfort.
Cosmetic Bonding is a process where Dr. Skrobanek attaches or “bonds” materials directly to your tooth in order to change the color and shape. The natural tooth enamel is then fused together with bonding materials such as porcelain and resins to create a strong structure that still feels like your original tooth.
While it can be used for different purposes, according to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, tooth bonding is most useful for repairing chipped teeth. That’s because the bonding materials and porcelain used are natural in color, and allows for a finished product that closely matches your surrounding teeth.
Teeth Whitening Brushing and flossing are everyday ways to keep your teeth bright, white and healthy. If you still feel like your smile is lacking some sparkle or is more yellow than it used to be, you’re not alone. When the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry asked people what they’d most like to improve about their smile, the most common response was whiter teeth. The American Association of Orthodontists also found that nearly 90% of patients requested tooth whitening. Ask Dr. Skrobanek or one of our trained staff about the best whitening option for you.
