Rejuvenate your smile with cosmetic dentistry. Procedures are available for addressing a wide range of cosmetic concerns, such as repairing cracked or chipped teeth and brightening teeth that are dull or discolored. Our Long Beach cosmetic dentist Dr. Joseph DuRoss can recommend the right procedures for addressing your cosmetic concerns.
Bonding is a procedure for repairing cracked or chipped areas of teeth. It can be used to cover cracks or fill in chipped areas. A tooth-colored resin material is applied to the problem area. The resin bonds with the tooth as it dries. Once dry, the resin blends in and looks like part of the natural tooth. Bonding can also be used to cover stains and discolorations or to close small gaps between teeth.
Composite fillings can rejuvenate your smile in several ways. Composite fillings can be used as a tooth restoration if you have a cavity, and they can be color-matched to your teeth so they blend right in. Composite fillings can also be used to to improve the appearance of teeth that are discolored, badly shaped, or poorly aligned. Your dentist in Long Beach can help you decide if composite fillings are the right choice for you.
You can completely transform your smile by concealing imperfections with porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are paper-thin covers placed over the front surface of teeth to create a flawless new look. Since porcelain closely resembles tooth enamel, veneers look completely natural once they are placed on the teeth. Porcelain veneers can be used to cover chips, cracks, stains, and discolorations. They can also be used to improve the appearance of teeth that are oddly shaped, as well as to close small gaps between teeth.
