Cosmetic dentistry is a great way to improve the appearance of your teeth. If you want to beautify your smile, then don't hesitate to contact your Virginia Beach, VA, dentist Dr. Jason Campbell.
There are two types of teeth whitening treatments provided: in-office teeth whitening or a take-home whitening kit.
The in-office procedure is quite simple and time-effective for the busy individual. Your Virginia Beach dentist will cover sensitive oral tissues, like your gums, and a device meant to retract your lips and cheeps will be placed in your mouth. The dentist will apply a strong whitening agent on the surface of your teeth and will allow it to sit for about an hour. When the hour is up, your dentist will remove the agent and your teeth should be whiter!
If you don't have time to visit your dentist for an hour, you can use the take-home whitening kit. A custom-made plastic mouth tray will be made for your teeth. One tray is used for the upper set of teeth and the other is used for the lower set of teeth. A whitening gel supplied by your doctor will be put in these trays, then placed over your teeth. In about an hour, your teeth should be whiter.
If cavities have deteriorated your tooth, a dental implant may help you. Dental implants consist of replacing the tooth root with a titanium post and placing an abutment and crown on top. This will strengthen your teeth and improve the appearance of your smile.
When you come into the Virginia Beach office, your doctor will examine your teeth and assess whether veneers are right for you. Then a model of your teeth will be sent to a lab where a custom set of veneers matching the color of your teeth will be made for you. Veneers deal with stained or discolored teeth, and mishappened teeth like crooked, worn or chipped teeth.
If you have any questions or concerns, then don't hesitate to call your Virginia Beach, VA dentist Dr. Jason Campbell.
