Start the fall season off on the right foot with a beautiful smile! With all your summer plans wrapping up soon, we encourage you to make a little time for some smile TLC! In just one or two visits, our Bordentown, NJ cosmetic dentist, Dr. Gopal, can take your smile from drab to fab! It’s possible you could even see your smile change before the leaves start changing.
To learn more about cosmetic dental treatments, call Premier Dental at 609-949-5115. Go ahead and take a few minutes to read about a few treatments that can make a big difference fast.
Get Rid of Stains
A dingy, yellow smile is the top contributor to an unattractive smile. Professional tooth whitening is one of the simplest, most straightforward ways to get brighter teeth. When we say brighter, we mean up to 16 shades brighter or more! If that seems impossible, it’s not, thanks to KöR whitening. Dr. Gopal hand-selected this type of whitening because it fights through the surface to whiten teeth beyond what almost any other brand can do.
If you want to see a quick change – perhaps before school starts up for your kids, before your final big summer event, or before a Labor Day get-together – we recommend the in-house whitening treatment. Although you’ll do a few treatments at home after the initial appointment in our office, you’ll see a major difference as soon as you leave our office.
If you choose to whiten at home, you can choose day or night whitening. A bright smile will be yours in about two weeks. Touch-ups can make and keep your teeth even whiter.
Either way, we’ll save you time by taking digital impressions to create your custom whitening trays. You can keep these trays for touch-ups down the road, although KöR will keep your smile bright for a long time.
Cosmetic bonding uses the same material as our composite fillings. Dr. Gopal meticulously applies the material to your imperfect tooth, smooths it out, and then hardens and shines it – all in one visit. Even though KöR is one of the only whitening treatments that can hide heavy stains from tetracycline, this can completely cover surface stains and intrinsic stains (those inside your tooth).
If you want a whole mouth of evenly white teeth, consider veneers. These shells fit over your tooth to actually cover the stains. Whitening may need to be repeated, and even bonding can wear out and stain over the years. You can pretty much forget about touch-ups with porcelain veneers. They are stain-resistant and last up to two decades or longer, if you take good care of them.
The best part is that you’ll just trade a couple of visits to our office for decades of a beautiful, strong smile.
Change the Size, Shape, & Alignment of Your Teeth
Bonding can do more to cover stains and discoloration. Dr. Gopal knows the right techniques to use it to change the shape, size, and alignment of your teeth.
- Slightly crooked teeth can look straighter.
- That gap between your teeth can be closed more.
- The pits and unevenness on your teeth can be smoothed over.
- Worn-down teeth can be made longer.
Just like whitening with veneers vs. bonding, our high-quality veneers can pretty much do it all when it comes to concealing the appearance of teeth. We’ve even used them as instant orthodontics to fix slightly crooked teeth and misshapen teeth.
Fix Cracks, Breaks, & Other Minor Dental Damage
Because this resin material bonds to teeth, Dr. Gopal can smooth it over cracks and chips to fill them in. Your tooth will look whole again in one visit.
Veneers can do the same, but rather than filling in these problems, they actually bond to the entire surface of your tooth. That means they cover the problem spot and the entire area around it with a strong porcelain. This will last years beyond bonding. Ask which one is right for you at your visit.
If you have a tooth that’s too pointy, uneven on the edges, or has a chip on the edge, teeth contouring can work wonders! Dr. Gopal very carefully smoothes out the edge with a special tool until your tooth looks even.
Improve Your Gumline
Gum Reshaping/Crown Lengthening
Many people don’t consider their gums when they think about getting a better smile. Or maybe you don’t care for your gums but didn’t realize there was a quick, easy way to make them better.
In many cases, Dr. Gopal can use a gentle laser to perform minor gum resculpting. If your gums are a little uneven, or if they cover a little too much of a tooth, ask her if this could bring out the best in your smile.
Laser treatment can take one visit, and it is often quicker than traditional gum treatment. And there’s no pain – all gain!
