A bright, beautiful smile can bring confidence and satisfaction. This means a smile that is not only appealing in looks but is also healthy and functional. For any cosmetic changes that you would like to make to your smile, come to the dental office of Dr. Beverly Thurmond.
Most people want an attractive white smile. A teeth whitening session can quickly and effectively brighten up a smile that has become dull due to either diet, health habits such as smoking, or simply natural aging. Over-the-counter treatments such as toothpaste, gels, and strips can help, but a treatment provided by a dentist (either in-office or take-home) contains a higher concentration of the whitening solution, making it the most effective option.
For issues such as chips, gaps, misshapenness, cracks, misalignment, and stains, veneers can be a good option. They are thin, custom-made shells made of porcelain that are attached to the front of the teeth. Because of the materials they’re made from, they are stain-resistant and can very closely match the color of the natural teeth.
A straight smile is not only attractive but allows more complete functionality of the teeth. Issues such as underbite, overbite, open bite, gapped teeth, or overly crowded teeth can be fixed using orthodontics. Traditional braces remain a popular and effective option for straightening teeth, but clear or tooth-colored braces are also good alternatives. Dr. Thurmond’s office is Invisalign-certified and can help you with that treatment.
If you are considering changing any aspect of your smile, be sure to talk to your dentist to find the best treatment option for you. Book an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Thurmond today.
