Cosmetic Dentistry Services
Whether you want a subtle change or a dramatic transformation, Dr. Furgurson can help you get the smile you’ve always wanted. We perform all cosmetic dentistry treatments in our Chapel Hill dentist office:
- Porcelain Veneers – Porcelain veneers are ceramic shells created to cosmetically replace the front-facing portion of your tooth. Because they are made from porcelain material, the veneers will reflect light similarly to your natural teeth. This option is perfect for patients looking for a complete smile makeover in Chapel Hill. Veneers can effectively conceal misshapen, strained, gapped, or slightly damaged teeth. Our goal is for your porcelain veneers to last a lifetime.
- Teeth Whitening – Common foods and beverages that we all consume on a daily basis leave behind staining agents and residues on our dental structures. While this is a common occurrence, it can cause unsightly cosmetic concerns for your smile. To combat this concern, Chapel Hill Family and Cosmetic Dentistry offer two types of professional teeth whitening: in-office and at-home whitening trays. Your dentist can help you decide if in-office bleaching, take-home trays or a combination of the two are best for you and your specific cosmetic goals.
- Tooth Bonding – Tooth bonding utilizes a tooth-colored resin to conservatively conceal minor blemishes on your dental structures. Minor stains, gaps, chips, or cracks can be concealed using the bonding material. Similar to the material used during a dental filling, the bonding material is applied over the affected portion of your tooth, hardened using an ultraviolet light, and then shaped down so that it does not interfere with your natural smile. Tooth bonding is often a convenient and economical treatment option for young patients or adults not ready for dental veneers.
- Dental Implants – Dental implants are considered the premier option when it comes to replacing a missing tooth. A dental implant is the only tooth restoration available that includes tooth-root functionality.
