- Porcelain Veneers
Imagine a whiter, more brilliant smile! Porcelain veneers provide a conservative approach to cosmetic dentistry that makes a dramatic difference in the appearance of your teeth. If you have chipped teeth, crooked teeth, gaps in teeth, or dull, stained teeth, veneers may be the perfect solution for you. Dr. Brad Williams or Dr. Brad Williams II will skillfully bond and shape thin strips of porcelain to your teeth, creating a straight, brilliant smile that enhances your appearance and your self esteem.
- Tooth Whitening
You may be quite happy with the size and alignment of your teeth. However, time may have dulled or yellowed their surfaces. The doctors at Williams Dental & Orthodontics offer several tooth whitening programs, including at-home treatments and professional treatments in the office. A brilliant smile may be as close as a single treatment away and is an affordable method of enhancing your entire appearance.
- Porcelain Bridges
When teeth are missing, your smile undergoes significant changes. Missing teeth can cause you to chew differently and may cause mouth pain. Additionally, as your remaining teeth work to compensate for the loss, gaps and spaces form that only make the situation worse. A porcelain bridge, custom designed by your doctor keeps your smile aligned and your bite functional. Bridges are anchored to existing teeth on either side of the missing tooth. They are semi-permanent, meaning they can only be affixed or removed by a dentist and are a long-term restorative solution to your damaged smile.
- Porcelain Crowns
You can erase years of wear and tear with porcelain crowns. We use a tooth-like crown made of porcelain to restore your tooth after the decay has been removed. Crowns are also used to restore chipped teeth, broken teeth, gaps in teeth, and other damage. Also called “caps,” porcelain crowns mimic natural looking teeth in both shape and color.
- Tooth-Colored Fillings
Are you embarrassed about your smile because of decayed, disfigured, or discolored teeth? If so, you may be a good candidate for composite resins, also known as tooth-colored fillings or restorations. When the decay has been removed from the tooth, it is replaced with “filling” material. In the past, amalgam (silver) fillings were placed into the cleaned out portion of the tooth. However, with new advancements in dentistry, you can now have tooth-colored fillings instead of silver fillings, resulting in a longer-lasting, brighter, whiter smile. The new tooth-colored material is bonded to the teeth for a stronger restoration.
Bonding is a tooth-colored material applied and adhered to the surface of the tooth, often without reducing the structure of the tooth itself. The bonding material is sculpted by your dentist to resemble a natural tooth, correcting chipped, broken, stained, or discolored teeth, and in some cases, also correcting gaps. It is less of an investment than veneers, but like a natural tooth, the resin may stain with the use of coffee or other staining foods.
- Gum Contouring
Do you see a lot of your gum tissue when you smile? Many people with “gummy” smiles do not know that there are treatments available to cosmetically enhance the look of your gums. Either Dr. Brad Williams or Dr. Brad Williams II can re-contour the appearance of your gum tissue, and with the addition of beautiful porcelain veneers, your “gummy smile” will disappear, revealing a bright, youthful smile that looks natural and well-proportioned. The entire process takes just a few visits, and because of advancements in cosmetic techniques, your comfort is assured. Call Williams Dental, and begin transforming your smile today!
