At-Home Teeth Whitening
Patients who prefer to reveal their results gradually appreciate the ability to whiten from the comfort of their homes with our take-home whitening kits. Gradual whitening is also an excellent choice for those who are especially prone to tooth sensitivity.
Don’t confuse our take-home kits with what you can buy over-the-counter. When you partner with Capron Park Dental for whitening, you will always benefit from a professional-strength solution and custom-fitted trays, which prevent saliva from entering into the solution and interfering with the effectiveness of the treatment. To whiten at home, simply fill the trays with gel and wear every night for about half an hour. You will begin to notice results immediately, but be sure to complete the treatment for maximum whitening.
Remember when having a cavity automatically meant restoring it with a noticeable silver filling? These days, there is a better alternative with tooth-colored fillings. Also known as composite or white fillings, this restorative option uses natural-looking composite resin to fill the hole left by tooth decay. Unlike the silver, or amalgam, alternative, tooth-colored fillings are metal and mercury-free, restore up to 85% of the tooth’s original chewing strength, and dry within seconds under a special light. Composite resin is also far less sensitive to heat and cold, meaning a tooth-colored filling may protect your tooth structure from future breakage.
In addition to restoring new cavities or replacing old silver dental work, the same material used for tooth-colored fillings can be used to make minor cosmetic improvements to cosmetically flawed front teeth. Chips, small gaps, slight misalignments, severe stains, and other issues can be corrected with natural-looking composite resin. The treatment, known as cosmetic bonding, is an affordable, non-invasive option by your cosmetic dentist.
Porcelain Veneers Perfect Attleboro Smiles
You can hit the reset button on your smile with beautiful porcelain veneers. These thin wafers of dental porcelain are affixed to the surface of the front teeth, and can dramatically enhance the size and shape of your less-than-perfect teeth, greatly improving the overall appearance of your smile.
Expect your porcelain veneers to be completed in two visits to Capron Park Dental. Veneers are applied in a minimally-invasive procedure in which your dentist removes a small amount of tooth enamel to make room for the new layer of porcelain that will be affixed on top. Local anesthesia is available for your complete comfort during each step of the procedure for porcelain veneers.
With proper care and maintenance, porcelain veneers can last for a decade or more. Brush and floss regularly to keep the teeth beneath and surrounding your veneers healthy. Protect your veneers with a custom-fitted sportsguard or mouthguard as needed during contact sports or for nighttime teeth grinding.
All-Ceramic Dental Restorations
Much like tooth-colored fillings, all-ceramic restorations provide restorative dental care with a focus on the aesthetics of your smile. If you have a damaged tooth, an all-ceramic crown, inlay, onlay, or bridge rescues your tooth without taking away from the beauty of your natural teeth like a gold or metal restoration inevitably would.
Ceramic blends so well with your smile because the material reflects light in the same way as your natural tooth enamel. It is also highly resistant to staining or discoloration. Additional benefits of all-ceramic restorations include…
- Often require less removal of healthy tooth structure, allowing for a more conservative treatment option.
- Provide a closer fit than other options.
- Long-lasting restorations.
- Metal-free option for patients with allergies or sensitivities.
- Sparkle just like your natural teeth.
How Do I Close a Gap Between Teeth?
Having even the slightest gap between teeth can leave you feeling self-conscious about your appearance. It can also increase your risk for tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease because of how easy it is for food and bacteria to become trapped. Fortunately, this common problem can be fixed with the help of a cosmetic dentist in Attleboro. Some of the most effective treatment options include:
- Veneers – These porcelain coverings can easily fit over the surface of your teeth and eliminate any unnecessary space between your teeth while blending in with the rest of your smile.
- All-Ceramic Dental Restorations – A customized dental crown can be created using impressions of your smile. Based on the specifications provided by your dentist, it can be made to not only blend with your natural teeth but also fill in the gap.
