How would you feel if your smile was a bit brighter than it is right now? Whiter teeth not only look sensational, they build the kind of inner confidence that really gives a smile its electricity. And you might be surprised what cosmetic treatments can do just that.
You may have seen TV advertising for toothpastes that whiten your teeth. These products work but can take up to a year to lighten the color enough to be noticed. Professional tooth whitening in the office of Dr. Davis lightens brown and yellow enamel discoloration. We use a special gel inside a custom-made tray that covers your teeth.
Porcelain veneers are also very popular treatment option for tooth whitening. They are one of the most conservative restorations that can be done. This means that the amount of tooth structure that Dr. Davis must remove in order to do a veneer is very small. Generally, only 0.3 to 0.7 mm needs to be removed from the surface of your tooth.
The veneer is made and bonded to the tooth, incorporating the desired changes in shape and color. Once the bond is complete, the veneer is virtually as strong as a natural tooth. Since the veneer is so thin and there is no metal in it, the esthetics is beyond compare.
Dr. Davis is a Duluth dentist who puts your dental needs first. During the consultation, he will make certain he understands what kind of results you are looking for, and will design a treatment plan with your desires as the goal. A unique phase of his veneer technique is the custom fabrication of interim veneers. These can be colored and shaped to what you and he agree looks best in your mouth prior to the ceramic technician making the final veneers. The end-result is no surprises, complete satisfaction.
