Today, cosmetic dentistry is more popular than ever, from whitening and shaping to closing spaces and replacing teeth. Our dentists here at Burton Dental have a wide array of tools and techniques at their disposal for improving the look of your smile. Listed below are just a few of the many exciting, smile-enhancing, dental procedures that are available to our patients right here in the Ogden Valley.
Porcelain veneers are very popular and successful way to improve the appearance of your smile. Front teeth that are cracked, stained, have gaps, are chipped, are uneven, or are slightly crooked can be permanently fixed by placing veneers. Veneers are a thin protective shell that is bonded to the front of each tooth. They are designed and made custom to create a beautiful, white, even, and aesthetic smile in a short amount of time. Porcelain veneers are a great option for smile makeovers where your teeth are essentially healthy, but you aren’t happy with the shape, color, and alignment of the teeth that are most visible when you smile. Please contact our office with any questions and to schedule a consultation to discuss if veneers are a good option for improving your smile.
Lumineers are a special type of porcelain veneers. Like regular veneers, they are thin shells that bond to the front of each tooth. Unlike regular veneers, Lumineers are so thin that often there is no need to remove any tooth structure to accommodate the new shell. The teeth are just lightly etched, and then the Lumineers are bonded in place. This often means no shots, and little to no shaving away of the natural tooth. It also means the entire process is virtually pain-free and in most cases reversible. If it is determined that Lumineers are right for you, an impression of your teeth is taken and sent to the dental lab to custom make your new Lumineers. At your next appointment, your doctor will try the Lumineers on to your teeth and then bond them in place. Lumineers are a great option for improving your smile. Please contact our office here in Eden to discuss if Lumineers are the best way to improve your smile.
White fillings are tooth-colored dental fillings made of a resin-composite material that are used to repair decayed or damaged teeth. If the damage is mild to moderate, a filling can effectively restore the health and function of the tooth. Cosmetic white fillings blend in naturally with your smile. White fillings are created using composite resin; your dentist will match the shade of the resin to your natural tooth color to ensure that your restoration aesthetically enhances your smile. To place the filling, your dentist will gently remove the decayed portion of the tooth and clean the tooth. The tooth will then be filled with composite resin and shaped to comfortably fit your bite. White fillings can be placed in just one visit in our relaxing Eden, Utah dental office.
Brushing and flossing are everyday ways to keep your teeth bright, white and healthy. Still, if you might feel like your smile is not as bright as you would like, or is more yellow than it used to be, whitening (bleaching) could be a great option you. Teeth whitening is a simple process. Whitening products contain ingredients which can safely break stains into smaller pieces, which makes the color less concentrated and your look teeth brighter. If you are looking for a simple and affordable way to enhance your smile, professional tooth whitening are a great option to discuss at your next dental appointment here in our Eden office.
