Could a cosmetic dentistry procedure offered by Dr. Selena Marchan, your dentist in Jacksonville, FL, improve your smile? Crowns, bonding, teeth whitening, and veneers all help you enhance, restore, and protect your smile.

Dental crowns

Crowns offer multiple benefits for your smile. If you've broken a tooth, adding a crown will restore the normal appearance and functionality of the tooth. When you're unhappy with the appearance of a tooth, a crown can conceal discolorations/imperfections, lengthen short teeth, or improve the appearance of crooked teeth. Crowns also prevent cracked or fragile teeth from breaking.

Hollow crowns completely cover teeth after they've been reduced in size. The restorations are created from an impression of your mouth to ensure that they look and feel completely natural.

Veneers

If minor flaws mar your teeth, veneers offer a simple way to makeover your smile. Although porcelain or plastic veneers are no thicker than a fingernail, they provide excellent coverage for imperfections. The tooth-shaped shells are cemented to the fronts of teeth and can:

  • Change the shape or length of teeth
  • Hide cracks, chips or other flaws
  • Conceal slight gaps between teeth
  • Keep discolorations out of sight
  • Whiten your entire smile

Bonding

When your tooth is discolored, chipped or worn down, bonding may offer the perfect solution. Your dentist adds composite resin, a material that looks like tooth enamel, to your tooth, shapes the resin, then hardens it with a curing light. Bonding is one of the least expensive cosmetic dentistry procedures yet offers impressive results.

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening dramatically lightens dull, stained teeth in just about an hour in our Jacksonville dental office. During the treatment, your dentist uses professional-strength hydrogen peroxide to safely bleach your teeth. Hydrogen peroxide breaks up and eliminates the dark pigments that cause stains in your tooth enamel.
