You’re looking down at your bounty from the Sweet Berry Farm and it reminds you of all the times you spent in your grandma’s kitchen eating blueberries. Your mother never liked you dipping them in sugar, but your grandma would always sneak it to you. You’re older now with your own small children, and you’re beginning to see what your mother was getting at as you watch your kids practically palm the sugar into their mouths. The night wraps up and go to brush your teeth. You flash yourself a quick, blue smile before you start. After you are done, you smile again, and notice your teeth still look a little discolored. They’ve been this way for a while and you really wish you could get it fixed. Your cosmetic dentist in Marble Falls has multiple ways to help improve the look of your smile.
Reasons to Get Cosmetic Dentistry
Healthy teeth do not automatically mean they are aesthetically pleasing. Consistent brushing and flossing is great for keeping your teeth and gums healthy, but they do very little to fix the color, shape, or spacing. This is where cosmetic dentistry can help. Whatever issues your teeth may have, Ritchie Dental Group knows how to fix them.
Zoom! Teeth Whitening
Years of coffee, wine, or simple ageing can leave teeth discolored. Zoom! Teeth Whitening can help remove these stains and leave your teeth 6-10 shades whiter. You can have your teeth whitened in-office, where we will apply a potent bleaching gel to your teeth and activate it using a special light to speed up the process. It typically takes under an hour to completely restore your teeth’s color. You can also whiten your teeth at home using a custom mouth tray we’ll provide you to apply the gel. You only need to use the gel and tray for 30 minutes a day for 2 weeks to get a dramatic result. This is much more effective than typical store bought whitening kits, and the results last much longer as well.
Porcelain veneers are extremely thin ceramic coverings that are bonded to the front of your teeth. In as little as two visits you can correct problems such as:
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Slightly misaligned teeth
- Obvious gaps
Porcelain veneers are one of the few procedures that can address all of these cosmetic problems. The material used will leave your teeth just as strong as before, and is stain-proof to ensure lasting whiteness.
We can help you correct crooked teeth in a variety of ways, whether that is with traditional metal braces, ceramic braces, Invisalign clear braces, or Six Month Smiles. Traditional metal and ceramic braces are some of the most reliable and durable treatments used to align teeth. Adults and older teens can benefit from the comfort and appearance Invisalign’s clear aligner tray system provides. Six Month Smiles can speed up the whole orthodontic process by only straightening the teeth that are seen when you smile.
Tooth-Colored Fillings and Restorations
When you need to get a damaged tooth restored, you want it to look just like it did originally and blend in with the rest of your teeth. Tooth-color fillings and crowns enable us to repair your tooth and make it aesthetically pleasing and functionally strong. You can even get crowns in one day thanks to our CEREC technology.
But What Should I Get?
There are so many ways to improve your smile, the only way to figure out which procedure is right for you is by visiting Dr. Greg Ritchie. That way they can examine your teeth and you both can figure out what is the path for you. No matter what your smile needs, we have it, so make an appointment with us today.
