The appearance of your teeth can play just as important of a role as their overall function for biting, chewing, and breaking down food. This is especially true for your front teeth, as they appear in your smile and many of your important facial expressions.
If you have teeth that are misshapen, have discolored tooth enamel, or developed other cosmetic defects, you should consider setting up a consultation with a dentist like Dr. Parker Long. After assessing the nature of the dental imperfections you’d like addressed, he can present you with an effective treatment plan.
In many cases, our dentist might recommend installing dental veneers onto the front surfaces of your teeth. This type of cosmetic dental restoration will clad the facial surface of each tooth with a shell made from either dental grade porcelain or composite resin. These materials can be shaded to appear just like natural, gleaming, and white tooth enamel.
A misshapen tooth, or one that suffers from a chip, fracture, or active area of tooth decay, might need to be restored with a porcelain dental crown. This could also be used to address a tooth with an existing or visible dental filling.
Your dental veneers and any necessary dental crowns will need to be produced at a professional dental lab. When they are ready, Dr. Parker Long and his staff will install the dental work with very strong dental cement.
