Fixing Chipped Teeth With Bonding

Mint Hill fix chipped tooth

A cosmetic dentist’s toolkit is filled with tools for fixing most dental issues, such as chipped teeth. In this post from Town Dental Group in Mint Hill, we’ll describe one that doesn’t get as much attention as other procedures, but is very versatile: dental bonding.

Dental bonding involves a resin material that is applied to teeth. It can also be used to fix cracks, to close gaps between teeth, as an alternate to conventional fillings for cavities.

The bonding material is applied to the teeth while soft and putty-like, and then hardened (or cured) with a special light. The material bonds with the tooth and can then be shaped and polished.

It takes about half an hour to complete most bonding procedures, depending on what we’re doing. When two or more teeth are involved we may want to schedule several appointments.

Dental bonding is a versatile cosmetic dentistry tool, available at Town Dental Group in Mint Hill. Our office has extended evening and Saturday hours for your busy schedule. Call for an appointment today!

Just Like Natural Teeth (Naturally Perfect Teeth, That Is!)

porcelain veneers Mint Hill

Is your smile beginning to look a little dull? Has its luster faded over the years? Maybe you’ve got a chipped tooth – or maybe even a couple. You don’t have to live with these imperfections if you don’t want to. At Town Dental Group in Mint Hill, porcelain veneers can mask these and other dental flaws, leaving you with a magnificent smile.

Porcelain veneers are custom-fitted medical-grade porcelain shells that are permanently attached to the surface of the teeth that need correcting. They look just like natural teeth – perfectly natural teeth, that is.

Veneers are one of the most popular options available from modern cosmetic dentistry. They are very strong, and can work wonders on any smile.

One thing to remember: a thin layer of enamel must be removed from the front of each tooth being covered with a veneer, in order for them to properly adhere. Once they’re cemented in place, they are permanent. But once they are in place, you’ll have the best-looking teeth of anyone you know.

To find out more about porcelain veneers, schedule an appointment with Town Dental Group in Mint Hill. They’re just one of our cosmetic dentistry services. Call our office today!

Porcelain Veneers And Instant Orthodontics

Mint Hill Porcelain Veneers and Instant Orthodontics

If you have been paying attention to orthodontics in recent years, you probably have heard about clear braces. They have been welcomed by many people, especially adults who want an alternative to traditional metal braces, and are available at Town Dental Group in Mint Hill.

There’s more good news for those who want to straighten their teeth. How about ‘instant orthodontics’?

We’re talking about porcelain veneers. Strictly speaking, they are not orthodontics; usually they are classified as cosmetic dentistry. Veneers are thin ceramic shells that are custom-made to fit over the front part of your teeth. They’re great for fixing slightly crooked teeth, which is why they’re sometimes called instant orthodontics.

Veneers are also a solution for abnormally spaced, stained or chipped teeth.

Along with Invisalign clear braces, porcelain veneers are available at Town Dental Group in Mint Hill. Call for an appointment today!

Sparkling Smiles At Town Dental Group

affordable teeth whitening Mint Hill

Sparkling smiles are more attractive than dull and yellow ones: you won’t get much disagreement there. Everybody likes to see a pleasing smile, and having beautiful teeth is also healthy for your self esteem. At Town Dental Group in Mint Hill, we create sparkling smiles every day with cosmetic dentistry.

Unfortunately, teeth lose their luster as we grow older, but we see staining on young patients, as well. To protect teeth from staining, it is vital to brush after meals to remove substances that can stain. After consuming acidic foods or drinks, however, it is better to rinse your mouth with water to dilute the acid. This will protect your enamel.

A great smile is a huge asset. It’s how we express a range of emotions without saying a word. Our goal is to draw your teeth and facial structure into harmony, so that you are able to present the world with the best possible you.

At Town Dental Group in Mint Hill, cosmetic dentistry can give you the smile you thought wasn’t possible. We have extended evening and weekend hours for your busy schedule. Call for an appointment with us today!

Mint Hill Wants Silver Screen Smiles

Mint Hill Wants Silver Screen Smiles

With the constant media coverage of celebrities, many of us are interested in having a smile like the stars! With cosmetic dentistry from Town Dental Group in Mint Hill, anyone can have a smile they want to show off.

Many smile makeovers include teeth whitening. There are a variety of ways this can be done. You can find whitening strips and gels in any drug store, and we can recommend an effective one. Even better is professional teeth whitening. This is a quick way to see whiter teeth, usually in less than an hour.

For missing teeth, a dental implant is an ideal, state-of-the-art solution. Because a dental implant is anchored into the jawbone, it looks and feels just like a natural tooth. A dental implant prevents jawbone recession and the shifting of adjacent teeth.

Porcelain veneers are especially popular. They cover the front of the teeth and are custom-made for each patient. Veneers are useful for anyone with broken or chipped teeth, stained teeth, or gaps they would like to hide.

Enamel shaping, bonding, braces, and gum contouring are other successful treatments that can be used to help your teeth look their best.

At Town Dental Group in Mint Hill, cosmetic dentistry can transform an ordinary smile into something you might see on the silver screen. We have extended evening and weekend hours that fit the busiest of schedules. Call for an appointment today!

Does Whitening Toothpaste Work?

porcelain veneers cost Mint Hill

Are yellowing teeth getting you down? If so, you are not alone! One of the most common concerns we hear about at Town Dental Group in Mint Hill have to do with dull teeth, and the best way to whiten them.

That explains why there are so many over-the-counter teeth whitening products. They include not only toothpaste, but gels and whitening strips.

Whitening toothpastes work by adding chemical agents that can gently polish and whiten teeth. However, these substances only remove stains that are on the surface of the teeth. This ordinarily results in whitening by roughly one shade.

On the other hand, professional teeth whitening can improve your teeth anywhere from three to eight shades. That is quite a difference!

Cosmetic Dentistry vs. General Dentistry

Mint Hill Cosmetic DentistryIn this post from Town Dental Group in Mint Hill, we explain the difference between general and cosmetic dentistry.

General dentistry is dedicated to preventing and treating oral diseases such as cavities and gum disease. When a problem is diagnosed, such as a cavity between two teeth, a general dentist will identify the best way to restore it.

Cosmetic dentists perform elective dental procedures that make smiles more attractive. Procedures like teeth whitening, tooth-colored fillings, dental bonding, veneers, inlays, onlays, and dental crowns transform smiles from ordinary to extraordinary.

In some cases, there is a cosmetic component to restorative procedures. For example, if a dental patient comes in after receiving an injury that chipped a front tooth, the tooth needs to be restored to prevent decay. The tooth is also less structurally sound, so it is vulnerable to further damage. In addition, the tooth affects the overall appearance of the smile. Depending on the specifics of the damage, there are several restorative options. Dental bonding, porcelain veneers, and crowns are all used to repair a damaged tooth.

At Town Dental Group in Mint Hill, we offer general and cosmetic dentistry. Call our office to schedule your next cleaning and checkup today!

Are Dental Veneers Reversible?

When people think about improving their smiles with cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers are a popular option. At Town Dental Group in Mint Hill, our veneers correct flaws and leave you with a magnificent smile.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic or composite resin. We custom fit veneers one at a time to go over the front of your teeth, giving them an attractive, completely natural appearance. You can use veneers to fix stained or chipped teeth, slightly crooked teeth, or abnormally spaced teeth.

Veneers are one of the most in-demand options available from modern cosmetic dentistry. They are very strong, and are made to match the color and shape of your teeth.

One caveat: a thin layer of enamel must be removed from the front of each tooth being covered with a veneer, in order for them to properly adhere. Once they’re cemented in place, they are permanent. But once they are in place, you’ll have the best-looking teeth of anyone you know.

Porcelain veneers are just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures available at Town Dental Group in Mint Hill. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!
