What you need to know about cosmetic dentistry services from your cosmetic dentist in Winston Salem, NC.

Have you been thinking about improving your smile? If so, you need to learn more about what cosmetic dentistry can do for you. Cosmetic dentistry services can give you the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. Dr. Denise Perrotta in Winston Salem, NC, offers a wide range of general and cosmetic dentistry services to give you an outstanding smile.

These are just a few of the questions and answers you may have about cosmetic dentistry:

How can I get a whiter smile?

Professional teeth whitening can give you a bright, white smile with lasting results. In fact, you can whiten your teeth up to 8 shades, and your beautiful results can last up to 5 years! Professional teeth whitening is the safe way to a whiter, brighter smile because all materials and methods have been approved by the American Dental Association.

What can I do about my worn-down teeth?

Dental bonding is an excellent solution for tooth wear and small chips or cracks. The procedure uses composite, a material that is matched closely to your natural tooth color and sculpted to match the natural anatomy of your teeth. After a dental bonding treatment, your smile will look whole and new again, with a look that blends into your smile perfectly.

I need a filling, but is there a choice other than metal?

Tooth-colored fillings are an excellent alternative to metal and provide a strong restorative treatment because the material actually bonds with tooth structure. Tooth-colored fillings use composite, which is matched to the color of your teeth. When you choose tooth-colored fillings, you will enjoy the beauty of a completely natural-looking filling that enhances your smile.

I want my smile to be perfect, so what should I choose?

Porcelain veneers can give you the perfect smile you want, in as little as 2 to 3 appointments. They are thin laminates of dazzling porcelain which are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth. Veneers can hide a wide variety of aesthetic issues including fracture lines, cracks, areas of lost tooth structure, tooth wear, discolorations, and more. Veneers can give you the outstanding smile you deserve, just in time for you to look your best for a special event.
