Your Cosmetic Dentistry Options
posted: Jul. 24, 2018.
Is personal appearance important? Just ask people who dislike how their teeth and gums look. They cover their mouths when they laugh and smile. They feel awkward socially. Others perceive them as less attractive, smart and approachable. If you doubt these generalities, research from the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) proves them. At the office of Dr. Jennifer Robb in Lorain, OH your dentist crafts rejuvenated smiles which look stunning and present the individual's personality. Dr. Robb can help you look and feel your best, too.
What do people want to change?
Regarding their smiles, most people would like to change their tooth color, says the AACD. As such, professional teeth whitening has become very popular among American teens and adults. In addition, Dr. Robb's patients also wish to alter:
- Gaps and overcrowding
- Hairline cracks and chips
- Tooth length that is too long, too short or uneven
- Excessive amounts of gum tissue
With any makeover--whether simple or complex--Dr. Robb asks her patients to think of realistic, achievable smile goals. Through a careful examination and precise imaging techniques, she offers ways to improve smiles while still preserving individual personalities.
Cosmetic dentistry services
We've already mentioned one: professional teeth whitening. For people with healthy teeth and gums, Dr. Robb offers two kinds: a fast in-office version and a more gradual at-home version. Both safely remove deep organic stains embedded in tooth enamel. Often, patients are so thrilled with the dramatic results, they do not pursue any other kinds of treatments.
However, for individuals with more complex goals, Dr. Robb offers:
- Composite resin bonding, which uses a tooth-colored mix acrylic and glass to repair small defects
- Porcelain veneers, ultra-thin and natural-looking laminates which disguise larger dental flaws
- Cosmetic contouring, a simple resurfacing and reshaping of damaged tooth enamel
- Tooth-colored fillings, the beautiful and durable alternative to dark metal restorations
Of course, excellent oral health supports smile aesthetics. So, with your smile analysis, Dr. Robb will ensure your teeth and gums are at their healthiest before she proceeds with any cosmetic dentistry services in her Lorain office.
