Have you ever looked into the mirror and your first regret was the appearance of your teeth? Your teeth still retain the same strength they’ve always had, but now you can see that 1 tooth may be crooked or your gums are uneven. Some unsightly stains are starting to darken – maybe it’s one too many cups of coffee, residue from when you smoked, or prolonged bad oral hygiene.
In any case, you’re starting to smile less and it’s starting to wear you down. Smiling less leaves you with a reduced self-confidence, especially in public. You’re not alone – in fact, studies have shown that almost 1/3 of adults agreed that 1 thing they would fix about themselves is their teeth and smile. Well, now there’s a solution for our Palm Beach Gardens, FL patients with Dr. Ajmo’s smile design procedures at PGA Dentistry, including porcelain veneers, gum contouring, and teeth whitening.
With smile design, the Effects are nearly instantaneous – you can restore your teeth to their once pearly likeness, helping you feel better about your smile, feel more youthful, and improve your morale. It’s also great for patients who don’t have the time or want to wear braces or other extensive dental procedures. Read along as we detail the many benefits that each smile design procedure can describe.
For patients who need to cover minor crooked teeth, stains or other cosmetic issues, porcelain veneers may be for you. Veneers are essentially pearl-white caps that are adhered to the tooth to cover these cosmetic flaws.
We also recommend applying veneers for patients who have found that tooth whitening may not be working for them. They also have a few distinct advantages – they reflect the light to give you a brighter smile, are stain-resistant, exhibit strength, and are long-lasting which can’t be found with other resin material for teeth corrections.
While porcelain veneers may cost a bit more than traditional tooth whitening procedures, our Palm Beach Gardens, FL patients have been satisfied with the cost-effectiveness of the veneers altogether. The brightness and longevity of the veneers greatly improved their smiles, allowing them to regain that social outlook on life.
Types Of Porcelain Veneers
PGA Dentistry offers a variety of porcelain veneers to fit the budget and comfort of each individual patient.
No-Prep Veneers are a non-invasive procedure, using thinner veneer casings on the front of your teeth only. E.Max® porcelain veneers are thin but durable, and still maintain an admirable level of strength and resilience. The last option is the Feldspathic Porcelain veneers, which are more translucent than the E.Max® veneers, allowing them to appear more dazzling. They are a bit more delicate with then E.Max® veneers but patients have been found to achieve a youthful, vibrant appearance. For more information about the types of porcelain veneers we offer, schedule a consultation with Dr. Ajmo today.
Here at PGA Dentistry, we pride ourselves on utilizing the latest technology for our patients, including laser dentistry procedures. For smile designing, gum contouring uses laser dentistry to reduce or reshape the appearance of your gums. For some of our patients, they’ve found their gums are uneven, sometimes even covering teeth. Having an even gum line is as aesthetically pleasing as having white teeth – symmetry is believed to be beautiful.
With laser dentistry, we can alleviate that awkward gum line, removing the excess gums from your teeth and sculpting it into the appearance that you want. This will give your bright teeth the attention they deserve, like an attractive frame around a painting.
Teeth Whitening options are very commonly heard nowadays – in commercials, on toothpaste tubes, and even in our dental office. We offer professional teeth whitening for our patients to help eliminate stains from life’s wear and tear, such as foods, beverages, certain medications, poor oral care or smoking. Brighter smiles will garner a second glance, and bring out the more attractive, youthful side to your smile.
In-office we offer Zoom! Whitening, as well as provide our patients with recommendations and take-home remedies. Zoom! Whitening is a quick, 1-hour procedure using bleaching gel and light to restore your teeth to their once bright and white state. For at-home remedies, the process involves using a whitening solution in a mouth tray and wearing it for the length of time instructed. For any at-home solutions, results may vary but will be noticeable in about a week or two.
