5 Smile-Enhancing Dental Services
Do you want a dazzling smile? Today, cosmetic dentistry is very popular, from teeth whitening and bonding to closing gaps and replacing missing teeth. Dr. Ralph Mazzuca in Washington, DC offers a full range of dental services. Here are five smile-enhancing dental services you should know about.
Dental implants are the gold standard in permanent tooth replacement. Implants are small anchors made of titanium that are placed into the jawbone to take the place of your missing tooth roots. After the bone has healed to the implant, false teeth are secured to the top of the implants. Implants restore missing teeth so that they fit, look and function like natural teeth.
A denture is a removable appliance that can restore your smile. A full denture is used when all the teeth are missing. This denture is placed in your mouth after your remaining natural teeth have been removed and the tissues have healed. A partial denture is used when some teeth remain in the jaw. Partial dentures rest on a metal framework that attach to the teeth.
Smile problems? Let dental veneers cover your dental imperfections and renew your smile. Dental veneers are custom-made shells of a composite resin material or resin, which are bonded to the front of teeth. Dental veneers can be used to improve the appearance of crooked, chipped, uneven, stained, gapped or misaligned teeth.
Want to fix up your not-so-pearly whites? Professional teeth whitening removes years of dental stains and the process is safe. For in-office bleaching, your Washington DC dentist will combine a whitening solution with a light source to whiten your teeth. Take-home teeth whitening involves custom-made trays filled with a whitening solution that you can use at home.
Dental crowns are caps that are placed over teeth --to restore their size, shape and strength, and improve their appearance. The dental crown fully encases the entire visible portion of the tooth. Dental crowns are used to restore badly decayed, cracked, chipped, weakened, stained and damaged teeth.
