Cosmetic dentistry can address crooked teeth, discolored teeth, and gaps between teeth. Enhancing your natural smile through cosmetic dentistry not only improves the aesthetics but the health and function of your smile. Create the smile you desire in our Leland dentist office.
Cosmetic concerns may also be related to an underlying dental problem. Chipped and cracked teeth can break down over time as well as lead to an uneven bite and even tooth loss. Crooked teeth are also more prone to tooth decay or gum disease because they are difficult to clean.
Bacteria easily builds up in areas that are not thoroughly cleaned and eat away at the gums and tooth enamel. Receiving cosmetic treatment at Waterford Family and Cosmetic Dentistry can save your smile from further oral health problems down the road.
Cosmetic Dentistry in Leland, NC
Cosmetic dentistry can make it easier to care for the teeth, improve patients’ confidence, and create a more youthful appearance. This dental service can change the shape, size, color, and alignment of teeth. Cosmetic dental treatments are often the final treatment after restorative or general dental treatments. We ensure that patients are in good health before they receive restorative care.
Tooth bonding is a more economical approach to cosmetic dentistry that can also address chipped, cracked, and discolored teeth. Dental bonding uses a biocompatible malleable material that is shaped onto tooth enamel and then cured. We also color-match the bonding material to natural teeth so they blend in with your smile. Patients with minor cosmetic problems who want quick and affordable treatment benefit from bonding.
LUMIBRITE™ is a method of professional teeth whitening we offer in our office and as a take-home treatment. Professional teeth whitening treatment offers longer-lasting and more effective results than over-the-counter teeth whitening. Over-the-counter gels, strips, and toothpaste often can’t produce the quick results that professional whitening can. With LUMIBRITE, patients can whiten their teeth with multiple shades in just one visit to our office.
Many patients may not know that their dentist can administer Botox. We offer Botox for patients who want to address facial wrinkles or symptoms of TMJ disorders. When injected into key areas of the face, Botox can minimize the appearance of wrinkles or relieve pain from headaches.
