Cosmetic Dentistry: Because Aging Affects Your Smile

  • August 23, 2017

Brushing, flossing, and rinsing your mouth every day at home, combined with stopping by our Plainville, CT dentist’s office for professional cleanings and examinations every six months, will help to keep your smile healthy all through life. But that doesn’t mean your teeth will look as spectacular as they did when you were younger. Think about it: the longer we use our teeth, the more they get worn down, and chipped. Plus, the habits we develop along the way, like drinking coffee at breakfast, soda pop or iced tea at lunch, and wine at dinner, can leave our teeth badly stained or discolored. That’s where Dr. Peltzer can help you to recapture a more pristine looking smile, through the magic of cosmetic dentistry. Keep reading to hear more about some of our smile makeover solutions, and then be sure to follow up with our team to schedule your consultation at Gentle Dental Care!

Professional Teeth Whitening

Dentist-directed teeth whitening is one of the easiest and fastest ways to improve your smile. It’s also one of the most popular cosmetic services we offer at our Plainville office. Just don’t waste your time and money on those store-bought DIY kits. They won’t take your smile where it needs to go, and those one-size-fits-all trays might leave you with damaged gums. Plus, since you are left to manage the process, you’ll only have yourself to blame for the failure. Always trust your whitening needs to the professionals, if you want safe, and noticeable results. That’s why we are here!

Dental Veneers

If the years have been unkind to your smile, this is a great catchall solution. Veneers are a kind of shell that we can bond to the front of your teeth (they are kind of like the false fingernails of dentistry). They can be used to correct any number of issues, including worn down teeth, to transform our smiles into something better than they’ve ever been or to restore our smiles to what they once were before the years took their toll.

Cosmetic Tooth Bonding

If you only have a few minor blemishes, or if you prefer to ease into the world of cosmetic dentistry, bonding is a great starting point. This procedure involves applying a tooth-colored resin to a chipped tooth or area that needs to be refurbished. This resin can be used to rebuild your tooth to its original shape. The bonding material will be sculpted, hardened, smoothed, and polished so it will look like the rest of your natural teeth. And your smile will look amazing again.
