You could be taking excellent care of your teeth, but over time, they may become dull, worn down, and/or damaged. These cosmetic flaws may not necessarily be harmful to your oral health, but they can still be embarrassing enough to prevent you from smiling openly in front of others. Our dentists at Little Rock Family Dental Care can help you feel comfortable and confident with your grin again; simply contact our office to ask about our various cosmetic treatments for correcting and enhancing your smile.
Perhaps you have a slight crack in your tooth. Or maybe there’s a stain that no amount of whitening has been able to remove. Or you might even have a tooth with a somewhat unusual shape. When you notice too many flaws to count in the mirror, you’ll most likely want a solution that takes care of all of them at once. We can cover each of these issues simultaneously with veneers – thin porcelain restorations that give the front side of your damaged teeth a dazzling, natural appearance.
Metal restorations are designed only to hold a weakened tooth together and prevent further damage; they are not made to take appearances into account. When you want to fix a tooth but aren’t comfortable with the idea of having a very noticeable piece of metal attached to your smile, get in touch with Little Rock Family Dental Care; our crowns are made out of a ceramic material that imitates many of the natural characteristics of teeth, including the way they reflect light.
A slight change to a tooth can significantly alter the impact it has on your smile. For minor chips, cracks, and flaws that don’t require the use of a veneer or crown, we can instead apply a small amount of composite resin. This material (which is also used for filling cavities) is virtually unnoticeable when shaded appropriately, and by molding it, we can slightly adjust the tooth’s shape as well as its general appearance.
Making a great first impression at a job interview or on a date is so much easier when you have a bright smile that you can be proud to show off, which is why teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments. You can use one of our custom-made take-home kits if you would rather have the process done at your own pace, but those looking for quick results should schedule a professional in-office treatment; your new grin will be six to eight shades brighter in about an hour!
Your gums frame your smile, but they might end up drawing unwanted attention if they cover more enamel than they should. With a gum recontouring procedure, we can get rid of unnecessary gum tissue, leaving the smile with a more balanced appearance. While the procedure is usually performed with metal tools, we can use a soft-tissue laser instead for a more comfortable treatment that results in less bleeding and an accelerated recovery.
