At our Carthage, Missouri, dental practice, our cosmetic dentist Dr. William Herrington and his team offer an array of exciting possibilities to get your smile back on track.
Looking for a brighter smile? Then consider….
In-office teeth whitening offers a smile that’s several shades whiter in only a one-hour session. When you come in for teeth whitening, we will apply a professional-strength bleaching gel to your teeth and then use a laser to activate the whitening chemicals in the gel. If you’re looking for instantly brighter, whiter teeth, then turn to our in-office whitening system.
If you’re suffering from major discolorations or internal stains that teeth whitening can’t fix, then dental veneers could hide these imperfections. Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells that go over the front of your teeth to hide any stains and discolorations you might have. Tobacco and antibiotic use can cause some unsightly stains, but veneers can hide these problems for good.
Looking to hide minor cracks or to smooth down sharp canines? Then consider….
Dental Bonding and Tooth Reshaping
This non-invasive procedure is a great option for someone looking to make minor tweaks to their smile. By shaving down small bits of enamel we can length, shorten, and change the shape of teeth. Then we can also apply a tooth-colored resin to your tooth to hide small cracks, chips, or stains.
Looking to cover more extensive esthetic flaws? Then consider….
These wafer-thin porcelain shells are great not only for hiding ugly dental stains but also for hiding more unsightly cracked, gapped, or misaligned teeth. For those who want to get a straighter smile without years of orthodontics, turn to dental veneers. Dental veneers are also a great option for someone looking to get a more dramatic cosmetic makeover.
Looking to replace your missing tooth or teeth? Then consider….
Complete or partial dentures can replace several or all of your missing teeth. This removable prosthetic is either held in place by surrounding natural teeth or through suction with the gums. Dentures can be a great option for someone who is looking for a quick and cost-effective solution for replacing multiple teeth.
For patients looking to replace a missing tooth, a dental bridge can offer a quick and easy solution. Dental bridges contain a dental crown on both ends of the appliance and an artificial tooth in the middle. The dental crowns are cemented over natural teeth that surround the gap where your missing tooth once was to hold the false tooth in place.
If you’re looking for a long-term solution for replacing a missing tooth or teeth, dental implants are small metal screws that are placed into the jawbone to firmly hold a dental crown in place. Dental implants are more expensive than other tooth loss replacement options and the procedure can take up to a year; however, implants are designed to last for a lifetime.
