Are you unhappy with the appearance of a damaged or imperfect tooth? Your dentists in Monrovia, CA, Dr. Lu, Dr. Benbassat, and Dr. D'Abilio, offer several cosmetic dentistry services that will help you makeover your smile.
Which cosmetic dentistry treatment is right for you?
It's not unusual to have at least one or two things you'd like to change about your teeth. Perhaps your tooth chipped when you bit into a hard pretzel, or maybe you're concerned about dull teeth or a tooth that's oddly shaped.
No matter what the issue, your dentist can improve the appearance of your smile with one of these treatments or services:
- Teeth Whitening: Stains from foods, beverages, and tobacco dull your smile and may make your teeth look yellow. Teeth whitening erases years of stains by breaking apart stain-causing pigments with hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. Professional whitening is quick and effective. You'll only need to spend an hour in the Monrovia dental office and may notice a three- to eight-shade improvement in the brightness of your smile.
- Crowns: These hollow restorations completely cover the tops of teeth and offer a good solution if your teeth are damaged, discolored, too short, or oddly shaped. If you've been living with a broken tooth, a crown will restore the normal appearance and function of the tooth.
- Veneers: A veneer covers the front of your tooth is a layer of porcelain or plastic. They're a good choice if you want to hide chips, cracks, or other minor flaws, or would like to keep a discolored tooth out of sight. Veneers can also close slight gaps, improve the appearance of oddly shaped teeth, lengthen teeth, and provide all-over whitening. Veneers are as thin as a fingernail yet offer excellent coverage for flaws.
- Dental Implants: Implants offer the latest way to restore missing teeth. Small titanium posts called implants to serve as artificial roots and are placed in openings in your jawbone. Implants bond to your jawbone and become securely attached to the bone just like natural roots. Once the new roots are bonded, they're attached to dental crowns. With proper care, dental implants can last your entire life.
