Nothing beats a radiant smile. But, what if your smile falls a little short? The good news is you may be able to upgrade your smile with a few simple solutions.
Daniel Park, DDS, of Beaumont Cherry Valley Dental in Beaumont, California, is an expert in transforming smiles. In this blog, he discusses three dental procedures that could have you smiling in no time.
1. Teeth whitening
Nothing beats professional teeth whitening if you want dramatic results fast. Unlike over-the-counter options made for the masses, professional solutions come with stronger, safer, and more dependable results.
Dr. Park relies on Opalescence Boost™, which is a proven system that has two options. If you want fast results, Dr. Park can provide a single in-office treatment that can whiten your teeth in one hour.
If you’d prefer whitening your teeth on your own schedule, he can provide an at-home kit. The kit comes with customized trays that are made for your teeth, and he provides personalized instructions on when and how to use the whitening solution.
Either way, these whitening treatments can really give you something to smile about.
Do you have tooth discoloration that doesn’t respond to whitening? Have no fear; that’s where veneers can help!
Veneers are tooth-like shells that go on the fronts of the teeth you can see when you smile. So if you have a discolored tooth, a veneer can cover it up. Or, if you have a misshapen tooth, a veneer can go on top of it and make your tooth look uniform.
Veneers can go on one or more teeth, and they can address a host of issues, such as
- Small, crooked, or misshapen teeth
- Severely stained or bleach-resistant teeth
- Gaps or uneven spacing
- Worn or chipped teeth
In order for Dr. Park to make veneers fit, he has to shave a little of the enamel from the targeted teeth. This means that once you get veneers, you’ll always need them. But veneers are easy to replace, and they can be tinted to the desired shade.
Do you have a badly damaged tooth? If so, a crown could be just what you need. A crown is a tooth-colored cap that encases the tooth to reinforce it. Furthermore, the crown is tinted to match your existing teeth.
A crown can be placed over a tooth for a number of reasons, such as to:
- Restore a worn down or broken tooth
- Protect and strengthen a damaged or weak tooth
- Complete a root canal or cover a filling
- Complete a dental implant
- Secure a dental bridge
- Improve the color, shape, or alignment of a tooth.
This is only the beginning when it comes to cosmetic treatments that can transform your smile. No matter your issue, Dr. Park can give you a thorough evaluation and discuss your options. To learn more, call 951-845-2661 to book an appointment with Beaumont Cherry Valley Dental today.
