Your Smile Makeover Procedure
Our dental staff cares about your smile holistically. That’s why we dedicate the time to look at each of your teeth and figure out the best solution. Therefore, we can’t recommend just one treatment for everyone. In fact, we often use different solutions for every individual smile. Generally, Dr. Crosby often recommends implant dentures, veneers, dental crowns, tooth whitening, and gum recontouring to meet your needs.
We understand the disappointing feeling that comes when you lose a tooth. You may feel like there aren’t any good solutions. However, dental implants provide prosthetic tooth replacements that both look and feel like your natural teeth. In fact, some of our patients report that implant dentures function better than their original teeth.
If you have severe damage to your teeth but don’t need an extraction, dental crowns could be your solution. We use dental crowns for teeth with severe infections. Generally, when you have a root canal or a large cavity, you will need a crown for your tooth to function normally again. With the advanced technology and commitment at Dr. Richard Crosby General & Cosmetic Dentistry, your crown will be beautiful and functional. First, we will match your crown to your tooth’s natural shade. Then, we will fit the crown perfectly to align with your other teeth by using advanced computer-imaging technology. In the end, you’ll have a gorgeous, functional new tooth.
If you don’t like the appearance of your teeth, then we can help you enhance your smile. With porcelain veneers, you can elongate, straighten, and whiten your teeth while filling in gaps or chips. Additionally, veneers allow you to correct your smile without changing the function of your natural teeth at all. When we place porcelain veneers, they simply sit on top of your enamel. Therefore, you’re only enhancing the appearance of your smile without changing the functionality.
Many of our patients use porcelain veneers and gum recontouring hand in hand. This is because we often have to reduce extra gums to fit your veneers properly. By recontouring your gums and placing porcelain veneers on your teeth, your smile will radiate. Not only that, but you will also gain confidence by showing off your new smile.
Some of our patients need functional fixes and general tooth whitening instead of larger cosmetic changes. For that, we offer Zoom! Tooth Whitening. Zoom! is a professional whitening service that can help your teeth get eight shades whiter in just 45 minutes. Due to its efficiency and effectiveness, our professional tooth whitening is a favorite among our patients.
