From whitening treatments to tooth-colored restorations, beautify your smile with Charleston SC dentist
A good smile is a delight to see, but the reasons behind that attractive feature are harder to pinpoint. Mouth Carolina Dentistry combines science and artistry to maintain or improve the beautiful components that make up this important facial characteristic, which makes such a difference in appearance and in others’ perceptions.
What qualities are so coveted in a smile?
It’s said the most beautiful faces are symmetrical. The same principle applies to teeth. Gaps, spacing issues, and chips are among the flaws that make a tooth on one side the face look larger or smaller than its counterpart on the other side.
Youthful features are valued across many cultures. Since children’s healthy teeth are generally white, a bright smile is associated with youth and vibrancy. Aging causes the protective enamel to thin. As the yellow dentin layer underneath is exposed, your teeth may appear stained instead of white.
Normal wear and tear, and habits such as tooth grinding, can create chips. Age-related changes and cumulative consumption of sodas and acidic foods can alter the natural, smooth and uniform texture and shape of teeth.
Are you familiar with the phrase, “Long in the tooth?” This notion refers to gum recession, which occurs due to conditions such as periodontal disease. As tissue retreats, your teeth look longer than they should. Teeth and gums that appear proportional are important to retain the overall youthful beauty of your smile.
How can you beautify your smile in Charleston, SC?
To regain a lovely smile or correct features that have been a bother for as long as you can remember, turn to a skilled professional with an artistic background, Dr. Greenberg can mold tooth-colored composite resin to correct chips, cover stains, and reshape and resurface teeth. Thin layers of porcelain may be fabricated in a lab to match the shade and overall appearance of your natural tooth structure. These porcelain veneers are then bonded to prepared enamel to close gaps, mask malocclusion, and cover up other flaws.
Some types of stains, such as those produced by coffee and tobacco use, may be safely and effectively treated from the comfort of your home with trays custom-made to fit the mouth and designed to deliver whitening gel uniformly to the teeth.
Dr. Greenberg can also determine if the effects of wear and tear merit restorative measures, such as tooth-colored fillings or crowns. Before embarking on any cosmetic procedure, the dentist will examine your teeth and gums and treat any conditions that affect oral health.
