A smile that has been affected by cosmetic or physical imperfections can leave you feeling self-conscious about your appearance. This is even more likely to be a problem if you have multiple cosmetic imperfections, including chips, mismatched fillings, and discolored tooth enamel.
Dental stains on the teeth in your smile can vary in severity. In many cases the stains penetrate so deeply into tooth enamel that they can’t easily be improved by the whitening products available on store shelves. In a situation like this, Dr. Aaron Wilkins can administer a dental bleaching treatment to remove the stains and restore your naturally white smile.
If some of the teeth in your smile suffers from physical imperfections like chips, or pre-existing fillings, Dr. Aaron Wilkins might recommend restoring the faces of your teeth with dental veneers. These are basically thin porcelain shells that shaded to a lustrous white. Dr. Aaron Wilkins will cement them onto the faces of each tooth in your smile with a strong dental adhesive.
The porcelain material used in the dental veneers will not be as receptive to future dental stains. This makes it easy to maintain your white smile in the future.
If you have a tooth that has been compromised by a significant dental fracture, a cavity, or an old dental filling Dr. Aaron Wilkins might recommend restoring the tooth with a porcelain dental crown. This will fully replicate the entire tooth enamel layer from the same dental porcelain used for the dental veneers.
