Cosmetic Dentistry Services
at Thomasville Dental Center
Your smile is one of the first things that other people notice about you. Whether you are looking for ways to correct a problem or change your smile appearance, cosmetic dentistry provides a number of solutions to enhance your smile comfortably and with options to fit into your budget.
Patients are often concerned about color, alignment, shape or size of teeth. Dr. Sanders may recommend teeth whitening, veneers, crowns, bridges or dental implant restorations to make cosmetic changes to your smile.
Teeth Whitening is a simple, safe and affordable way to lighten teeth by several shades. If you have grey or yellow teeth, or teeth that have become darker due to repeated exposure to medications, soft drinks, tea, coffee, wine or tobacco, you may be a candidate for teeth whitening (bleaching). At Thomasville Dental Center, we can provide in-office bleaching for quicker results or at-home bleaching for patients who prefer this approach.
Porcelain Dental Veneers
Esthetic dental veneers are a conservative treatment approach to conceal discolored, misshaped, damaged or crooked teeth. A porcelain veneer is a thin facing fabricated by a dental laboratory technician that is adhered to the front of your teeth. The procedure is very comfortable and usually involves removing a small amount of tooth enamel. With proper care, veneers can last for many years. For patients with cosmetic concerns, veneers can be shaped to compliment your smile and are available in a number of shades of "white" to design a beautiful, bright smile made just for you.
Porcelain Crowns, Bridges & Dental Implant Restorations
When a tooth has been damaged by tooth decay, trauma, or has a broken-down filling, Dr. Sanders may recommend covering and protecting the tooth with a laboratory-fabricated crown.
Did you know? Tooth loss has a "domino effect" - in addition to compromising the ability to chew, other teeth will shift into the open space and can have a negative impact on your bite. Dr. Sanders may recommend that a missing tooth be replaced with a bridge or a dental implant and crown. These replacement options allow you to eat and smile with confidence and help prevent further consequences of missing teeth.
Porcelain ceramics may also be used in custom crowns and bridges. Dr. Sanders will design the structural foundation needed to protect your teeth, and will work with you to arrive at a shade combination that compliments your smile for a natural-looking and beautiful result.
