Having an ugly smile is not something you can hide forever, but your Leesburg dentist can help improve your confidence and self-esteem with dental veneers. That’s one reason why cosmetic dentistry has become so popular these days. And with the “instant orthodontic” effects of our dental veneers, you can quickly get a smile everyone will love.
Dental veneers are thin shells made from an enamel-like material, most often porcelain. They are placed on the front of your visible teeth, so whenever you smile, people will see the veneers instead. Any stains, cracks, or chips are covered by the lifelike veneers. Even if you have a tooth with an irregular edge or a small but noticeable gap between your teeth, the veneers can be made just a little bit bigger to cover both. That’s why they’re sometimes called “instant orthodontics.” They work so fast and create such a big difference, it’s like magically getting orthodontic and cosmetic work.
When you see celebrities smile on the red carpet, you can’t help but notice how great their smiles look. They undoubtedly had their teeth whitened. In the past, teeth whitening was too complicated and expensive for regular folk like you and me, but these days, our Leesburg, VA dentist office can give you a teeth whitening system sure to make your smile look amazing.
There are several products available without a prescription that claim to whiten your teeth, such as special toothpastes and gooey strips. They all work — to some degree. In order to be sold over the counter, the manufacturers have to dilute the whitening agents. That means you’ll probably end up having to buy the same product over and over again, wasting time and money just to get a few shades lighter. Professional-strength systems like the ones we offer at our Leesburg, VA dental office work much better and faster.
We offer two teeth whitening systems:
1. PureWhite is a take-home system that uses a gel in a series of mouthpiece-like trays. You fit them over your teeth and wait awhile before taking them out again.
2. KöR Whitening System can also be done at home, but we also offer an in-office KöR system that can get your teeth white again in just one visit. KöR can whiten your teeth up to 16 shades or more, tackling even deep stains from medication or tobacco.In fact, KöR Whitening is the only whitening of its kind. It not only removes your current stains, but it helps your teeth prevent future stains. Set up your appointment to get started as soon as possible!
Everyone knows that orthodontics are for teenagers, right? Think again with your Leesburg dentist. Yes, your teenage years are the perfect time for moving your teeth to where they should be, but your teeth don’t always stay put. Over time, your smile can slowly look uneven or crooked even if you had braces as a kid. That’s why many adults are joining teens in getting orthodontic treatments.
Your primary teeth serve as guides for your adult teeth to follow, and in a perfect world, those teeth would come in and look straight and evenly spaced. But how often is the world perfect? For almost everyone, at least some of the adult teeth come in crooked and uneven, leaving you with an unaligned, unattractive smile. But for some people, it’s more than just a cosmetic issue. Sometimes, your body doesn’t make all of the adult teeth you need. Your wisdom teeth could come in and push the rest of your teeth out of alignment. You could even have too many teeth, creating an overcrowded smile. Thankfully, orthodontic treatments from our Leesburg, VA dental office can help with all of that.
Tooth decay. Cavities. Just mentioning either conjures up images of something vague but painful. But the real pain comes from not doing something about it. If you try to ignore tooth decay, you’re not just going to be in a lot of pain. You could easily lose the tooth. Thankfully, the dentists at our Leesburg, VA dental office can use tooth-colored fillings to repair the damage.
The material used to fill in a cavity has changed over the years. In the past, most fillings were made of a combination of metals including silver and mercury, and that mix was called an amalgam. If you have a metal filling in a tooth, chances are it’s an amalgam filling. While effective, amalgam fillings certainly do not look nice in your mouth. At our Leesburg, VA dental office, we never use metal amalgam fillings. Instead, we use a composite resin material that matches the color of your teeth. The cavity is still taken care of, but it looks much better.
