Bonding is a tooth-colored material applied and adhered to the surface of the tooth, often without reducing the structure of the tooth. The bonding material is sculpted by Dr. Maddox so that it resembles a natural tooth, thus correcting chips; broken, stained, or discolored teeth; and, in some cases gaps. While it is less of an investment than porcelain veneers, bonding doesn’t last as long and can sometimes become stained from foods and beverages. We encourage you to come in and talk with the Lake Pointe team about your options.
Do you have a “gummy” smile? If so, you may be a good candidate for cosmetic gum tissue contouring. Dr. Maddox can give you a more aesthetic appearance when you smile by shaping and sculpting your gums, using a laser to minimize recovery time. This procedure can make a dramatic difference in the look of your smile, especially when combined with other cosmetic dentistry.
Imagine a whiter, more brilliant smile! Placement of porcelain veneers is a conservative cosmetic treatment that makes a dramatic difference in the appearance of your teeth. If you have crooked teeth, chipped teeth, gaps in teeth, or dull, stained teeth, veneers may be the perfect solution. Dr. Maddox will skillfully create a straight, brilliant smile that enhances both your appearance and your self-esteem.
You can have the confidence that comes from a bright, white smile. If you are happy with the alignment and spacing of your teeth, a teeth whitening procedure may be all that separates you from a dazzling smile. Teeth whitening is safe, effective, and long lasting. Your home whitening kit involves a special tray that is customized to fit over your teeth to evenly disperse prescription whitening gel, which is inserted into the tray before you wear it. You can expect the entire home whitening process to take between two and four weeks, leaving you with a whiter, brighter smile. With home whitening, you can reuse your trays to touch-up your smile whenever it needs a little boost. If you are thinking of other cosmetic improvements, such as crowns, porcelain veneers, or replacing old discolored fillings, consider whitening your teeth first. Then, any future restorations will be matched to your newly-whitened teeth, giving you fantastic results.
