Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
Like many Chapel Hill cosmetic dentists, our practice offers a complete range of cosmetic services. What makes us different is the level of service we provide and the quality of the results we deliver. Dr. Furgurson and Dr. White will tailor a cosmetic dental treatment plan to meet your specific needs and goals. Our services include:
- Porcelain Veneers – Veneers are a great way to conceal blemishes on the front-facing portion of your tooth. Patients can get one veneer or several veneers to drastically alter the appearance of their smiles without the need for an invasive procedure.
- Porcelain Crowns – For patients looking to conceal major cracks or chips on their dental structures, we often recommend crowns over veneers. Unlike veneers, crowns replace the entire exterior of the affected tooth instead of just the front-facing portion. This means that you not only get a cosmetically restored tooth but a functionally restored tooth as well.
- Teeth Whitening – When your teeth become dull or yellow, we can help restore the brightness of your smile using our teeth whitening solutions. Our office offers in-office and take-home whitening kits that are customized to your smile. Unlike over-the-counter teeth whitening solutions, our professional teeth whitening services include whitening trays designed specifically for your smile using dental impressions for a more consistent and less blotchy result.
- Tooth Bonding – Teeth bonding utilizes a tooth-colored resin similar to what is used with dental fillings. The resin is applied, hardened, and shaped down to discreetly and conservatively cover up minor stains, chips, cracks, or gaps.
- Invisalign® Clear Braces – Invisalign is a clear braces alternative to traditional orthodontic solutions. Utilizing clear aligners that are removable, Invisalign allows patients to straighten their crooked or misaligned teeth without having to deal with dietary restrictions or oral hygiene obstacles.
The goal of a smile makeover is to alter your smile so that it is exactly how you want it. It can boost your confidence, having a lasting positive impact on your social and professional interactions. Additionally, patients who love their smiles are more likely to take better care of their smiles by brushing and flossing regularly as well as scheduling regular preventative care appointments at their dentist office.
A smile makeover commonly includes porcelain veneers, but your dentist may incorporate other cosmetic dentistry procedures as well. At our dental office, our smile makeovers combine cosmetic and restorative dental treatments to completely invigorate your smile. We can enhance beauty and appearance without sacrificing function.
Why do teeth grow crooked?
Crooked teeth are a common trait among members of families. This is because genetics can have a large impact on jaw size and tooth alignment. Crooked teeth are sometimes a sign of a small jaw.
