Can you believe that spring is just around the corner? Weekends are filled with trips to the garden center, cleaning up the yard and signing the kids up for springtime sports. Well, how about taking some for yourself, too, by making sure your smile is ready for the new season? At Alamo Springs Dental, we have a variety of cosmetic dentistry treatments. Dr. Michele Moreno and Dr. Aiyana Anderson are each the cosmetic dentist San Antonio residents trust to enhance their smiles. Let’s take a look at the cosmetic procedures available from your 75824 dentists.
Just about everyone needs to have at least one cavity repaired at some point during life. It’s understandable—teeth endure an almost constant onslaught from decay-causing bacteria. When you do have a cavity, it’s nice to know that it can now be repaired with a filling that blends seamlessly with the color of your tooth. A tooth-colored filling is made of BPA-free composite resin. As such, the filling material not only matches the color of your tooth, but it also bonds with the remaining tooth structure for a much stronger restoration.
Porcelain veneers are also called instant orthodontics, because they really do transform a smile almost instantaneously. Veneers are ultra-thin coverings of medical-grade dental porcelain that are custom designed and crafted to correct a variety of smile flaws, such as chips, cracks, broken or misshaped teeth and even—speaking of instant orthodontics—teeth that are a bit crooked. Porcelain veneers are adhesively bonded to the teeth that show when you smile to cover imperfections and create a beautiful new smile.
Just like cavities, almost everyone experiences some staining and discoloring of their teeth. Some of that is due to aging; other factors include smoking and chewing tobacco, richly colored foods and beverages, certain medications and chemotherapy treatment, and genetics. Alamo Springs Dental offers in-office whitening that takes only an hour to achieve results that are several shades brighter. There is also take-home whitening if you’d prefer to whiten on your own at home.
For patients who have a damaged or missing tooth, your San Antonio family dentist offers all-ceramic crowns and bridges. A crown fully encapsulates a cracked or broken tooth, helping you avoid further damage. A dental bridge consists of two crowns affixed to healthy teeth in order to hold a false tooth in position. Both of these restorations provide the function you need and the natural appearance you want.
