“A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.” – William Arthur Ward
Are your lips closed when you smile for a photograph? Do you cover your mouth when you let out a laugh?
What language does your smile speak?
If your smile is saying things you don’t want to hear, affecting your confidence and your self-esteem, you should know that simple, affordable cosmetic solutions are available. At Summit Dental Group, we speak the language of smiles, and we can help you choose treatments using the latest advances in cosmetic dentistry that will help you look and feel better.
Some of the cosmetic procedures we offer include bonding, porcelain veneers, porcelain and zirconium crowns, and teeth whitening. We'll assess your needs as well as your goals to help you choose the procedure that is right for you.
Bonding is a conservative cosmetic procedure that can cover up areas of discoloration, widen teeth to lessen the appearance of gaps, extend short teeth, and repair teeth damaged by chips or wear. The bonding process is simple and can usually be completed in just one office visit.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are bonded over your existing teeth. The secret behind the flawless smiles of many celebrities, porcelain veneers are more affordable than you might think and can completely transform the appearance of your teeth by covering discolorations and chips and even lengthening short or eroded teeth. Veneers are a permanent solution to your cosmetic concerns.
Teeth that are more severely damaged may benefit from porcelain or zirconium crowns. Sometimes referred to as “caps,” the technology used to create crowns has advanced considerably in recent years, allowing crowns to look practically indistinguishable from natural teeth. Crowns can repair damaged or worn teeth, support a tooth with weakened structure, and even replace a missing tooth as part of a dental implant system.
If you have older crowns that are made of metal or are otherwise artificial looking, talk to us about replacement with a more modern solution.
Yellowing teeth are a fact of life. As we age, the enamel on our teeth wears down naturally, which allows the yellowish dentin underneath to show through more clearly. Beverages like coffee, tea, and red wine as well as habits like smoking can accelerate the process, leaving teeth severely stained.
Luckily, we can reverse time and staining damage with the help of advanced teeth whitening treatments. At our Dillon dental office, we use Opalescence, a customized and convenient at-home professional teeth whitening program that can give you noticeable results in just two weeks.
Don’t let a flawed smile hold you back. Call Summit Dental Group today to schedule your cosmetic consultation with Dr. Bryan Hilton or Dr. Corry Marcincin to learn more about the cosmetic procedures we offer to determine which procedure can help you meet your dental needs and goals.
