Designing Your Perfect Smile | Palm Harbor Dentist

If you have some flaws to your smile that make you feel self-conscious, it may be time for a smile makeover. These days, there are lots of ways to improve it.

Both bonding and porcelain veneers have similarities. They cover dental imperfections, but the procedures are quite different. Dental bonding uses a smooth tooth-colored solution that is applied to the flawed teeth, dried and cured to create a more natural look. This procedure is used on patients who need one or two teeth corrected.

When it comes to veneers, they are created differently. Your new teeth will be fabricated from a solid piece of porcelain. While bonding is applied to your actual teeth, veneers fit over the front and underside of your tooth, covering it completely. They are used for multiple reasons, especially when it comes to lengthening or widening teeth to close gaps or fill in chips. While bonding is best for simple small fixes, porcelain veneers are generally used for patients who have several cosmetic problems or want their entire set of front-facing teeth made over.

A crown is a functional covering that dentists put over a damaged or decayed tooth or teeth to improve appearance and can be placed on top of a dental implant. With advancements in dental technology like the CEREC system, you can get all of this done in one day. The scanner takes 3D images of your jawline and the computer the dentist takes excellent images of the crown’s area. Unlike a porcelain veneer, these one-day crowns are made with an enamel-like material.

A dental consultation is necessary to find out more about your smile makeover options and to coordinate a dental treatment plan. Ask about your options.

Start Off the New Year with a Great Smile | Palm Harbor Dentist

Now that we have begun the new year and our healthy resolution changes are in full swing. Did you consider the health of your smile while making these changes? We consider our smile to be the first thing one sees upon meeting, so if our smile is flawed, it is cause for feeling self-conscious. If a crown is the solution to your flawed smile, you can have it fixed with plenty of time to hit the gym and it won’t disrupt your healthy diet either. CEREC is a CAD/CAM technology, computer-assisted design and computer-assisted manufacture system and allows your dentist to make you a customized crown in just one visit.

A crown is a functional covering that dentists put over a damaged or decayed tooth or teeth after the dentist has removed the defective area to strengthen a tooth and improve appearance.

Before CEREC, making crowns consisted of multiple visits – the consultation, creating dental impressions of your tooth then sent to the lab to make your crown. After a few weeks, you come back to have it placed. Another advantage of CEREC technology is precision. The scanner the dentist uses takes 3D images of your jawline which takes excellent images of the area for the crown. Instead of porcelain, these one-day crowns are made with an enamel-like material. Since no metal is used, the detection of cavities becomes easier.  And because we know that how your teeth look is important to you, they can color your crown in a day to match your existing teeth.

A crown is a functional covering that dentists put over a damaged or decayed tooth or teeth after the dentist has removed the defective area to strengthen a tooth and improve appearance.

Before, making crowns consisted of multiple visits. First, is the consultation. They take a dental impression to make a mold of your tooth, then send it to the lab to make your crown. After a few weeks your crown is ready, so you would come back to have it placed. But with advancements in dental technology like the CEREC system, you can get all of this done in one day, saving you lots of time.
