One thing practically all celebrities can be seen sporting on the red carpet? Gleaming, white smiles. While celebrities may have seemingly endless funds at their disposal, the good news is that for celebrities and non-celebrities alike, picture-perfect teeth are not out of reach.
Of course, the first step to achieving beautiful teeth is to maintain a healthy and preventative cleaning regimen. But over time, your teeth may become stained or darken in color due to tobacco use, pigmented drinks like coffee and wine, and many other factors. Teeth may also chip, crack or decay, keeping you from having the dazzling smile you’ve always wanted. At Robbie Smith DDS, we offer several cosmetic dental procedures that can undo wear and tear damage to give you a grin that has that Hollywood Wow-factor. Those include:
- Professional Teeth Whitening: Unlike tricky DIY whitening kits, professional whitening services can bring your pearly whites to gleaming levels of brightness – and can keep them there longer. Using safe, professional-grade bleach, your skilled dentist can virtually erase stains and discoloration from the outer layers of your teeth, restoring the natural vibrancy of your smile. Depending on the level of stain you’re dealing with, you can have a megawatt grin after just 2 or 3 visits.
- Porcelain Veneers: For a straighter smile, or for a more permanent whitening solution, porcelain veneers can be applied to either one tooth or multiple teeth. As part of this procedure, thin shells of porcelain are bonded overtop and wrapped around your natural teeth, hiding imperfections and providing a more uniform appearance. If you’re interested in possibly enhancing your smile with veneers, speak with your dentist about how they can work for you.
- Cerec Crowns: Though more complex than stained teeth, cracked or decayed teeth don’t have to stand in the way of a star-worthy smile, either. Dental crowns can be used to repair and restore more seriously damaged teeth, both in functionality and appearance. Crowns are made from porcelain and metal alloys, and are customized and crafted to replicate a healthy tooth for a beautiful smile free of disruptions. (Crowns can also be made from strictly porcelain for cosmetic reasons, though those are recommended only for front teeth, since they’re more delicate.) At Robbie Smith DDS, we specialize in Cerec technology, which allows our expert dentists to use computer technology to design your natural-looking crown on the spot, so yours can be placed in a single visit.
