Common Cosmetic Dental Problems
Serving Northern Virginia including Oakton, Fairfax, Reston, Alexandria, Arlington and Washington D.C.
If you are self-conscious about some aspect of your smile, it does not have to negatively impact your life. Modern cosmetic dentistry allows northern Virginia cosmetic dentist Dr. Chung to fix any quirk of your smile that may be restricting your daily interactions.
Trained at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI), Dr. Chung has the skills necessary to enhance your smile and restore your self-esteem and overall well-being.
Here are just a few common cosmetic dentistry problems that our talented dental team can fix:
Persistent stains from drinking coffee, tea and red wine develop over years and often leave your smile looking dull and discolored. Tobacco use can also make your teeth turn dark and yellow. Tooth whitening treatments can brighten your smile and remove years of stains, providing you with a younger, rejuvenated smile.
If your teeth are uneven, overcrowded, too short, or too long, these problems can be corrected with porcelain veneers, which are thin shells placed over your natural teeth to make your smile appear straight, white and aesthetically pleasing.
Tooth decay affects patients young and old. If tooth decay is present in your mouth, the dental professionals at Softouch Dental Care will remove the decay and fill it with a tooth-colored material such as a composite resin or stronger porcelain material.
Chips, Gaps, Uneven Spaces
If your teeth are jagged, chipped or unevenly spaced, these common problems can be corrected with dental bonding. With this procedure, a tooth-colored bonding material is applied to your tooth and hardened with a special curing light. Bonding is ideal for minor flaws, while porcelain veneers are used for cosmetic problems that cannot be fixed with bonding.
Cracked, Fractured or Missing Teeth
If you have a tooth that is so badly damaged that it will not hold a filling, a dental crown can be used to reinforce your tooth and protect its surface. If you are missing a tooth or had to have a tooth pulled, it is important that you replace that tooth, as your other teeth will shift toward the empty space. A missing tooth can be replaced with a false tooth, held in place with a dental bridge or dental implant.
If you have an unappealing smile, cosmetic dentistry can give you a rejuvenated, aesthetically enhanced smile that can boost your self-esteem and your overall well-being. To schedule a personal consultation at Softouch Dental Care in northern Virginia, please contact our office today.
