Hiding Your Smile?

A Facelift For Your Teeth?

porcelain veneers price Winston-Salem

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of medical-grade porcelain or resin. At Winston-Salem Dental Group, one of their uses is to improve the appearance of a smile. They’re like getting a facelift for your teeth!

Are there aspects of your smile you don’t like? It might be a tooth damaged with a chip or crack; a tooth that is worn down, or stained; it may be a couple of teeth with an unsightly gap between them. Porcelain veneers can correct these issues.

Veneers are custom-fitted to the tooth or teeth being treated. After being created by a dental technician, the veneers are permanently bonded to the front of the tooth. A thin layer of enamel must be removed before bonding, so once they’re on, they’re on for good.

Although veneers are usually thought of as cosmetic, they can be used to repair damaged tooth enamel, too. Once a veneer is bonded to a tooth, it is a strong and durable surface.

Porcelain veneers are among the cosmetic dentistry services available at Winston-Salem Dental Group. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!

Common Myths About Cosmetic Dentistry

Common Myths about Winston-Salem Family Cosmetic Dentistry

At Winston-Salem Dental Group we improve smiles with cosmetic dentistry every day. From the questions that some patients ask, though, it seems there are some myths about what cosmetic dentistry can and cannot do. So we’re using this blog post to clear up a few of them.

Myth #1: Cosmetic Dentistry is Never Necessary for a Healthy Smile

Many “cosmetic” dental procedures are not solely cosmetic.  Procedures such as tooth replacement prevent potential issues like tooth movement, bone loss, and difficulty chewing and speaking.

Myth #2: A Dental Bridge is the Only Way to Replace a Missing Tooth

Dental bridges have been used for many years with success. However, dental implants are often a better choice for replacing one or more missing teeth. Dental implants have many advantages. They feel like natural teeth, they are stronger, and they are easier to clean than dental bridges. Implants can also be used to anchor dentures or partial dentures.

Myth #3: At-Home Teeth Whitening is as Effective as Professional Whitening

Commercially purchased whitening systems cannot compare to professional-strength teeth whitening treatments. They may remove surface stains, but do not provide the best results.

Myth #4: Dental Bonding is the Best Way to Fix a Chipped Tooth.

Dental bonding can restore the shape of a tooth, but may not be the best long-term solution. If you have a damaged tooth, you may be a good candidate for porcelain veneers.

Myth #5: Braces are the Only Way to Correct Crooked Teeth

Braces can transform a smile, even in adults. However, if your teeth are only slightly crooked, porcelain veneers can reshape your teeth and help you get a beautiful smile.

At Winston-Salem Dental Group, we want the best possible smiles for all of our patients. Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment today!

Smile Perfection

Winston-Salem low cost teeth whitening

At Winston-Salem Dental Group, we are dedicated to smile perfection. We use cosmetic dentistry to transform ordinary smiles into smile masterpieces.

Here are some of the procedures we use in smile makeovers.

Implant Dentistry
Dental implants are the ultimate tooth restoration. A dental implant is a metal post that is inserted into your jawbone. The post replaces the root of the missing tooth.

After a few months, it fuses with your jawbone to provide a solid base. One implant can support one artificial tooth, while several can support a dental bridge, or even a full denture arch.

Dental Crowns
A mainstay of dentistry, dental crowns are better than ever. New fabrication technologies and materials have improved their aesthetics and stability.

Veneers
A veneer is a more conservative treatment than a full crown. This is a good choice for people whose teeth are structurally sound but have unsightly issues such as discoloration, chips, cracks, or imperfect shape.

Inlays/Onlays
Inlays and onlays (indirect fillings) are designed and created using dental CAD/CAM software. These fillings are strong, attractive, and precisely fitted to the cavity.

Tooth Whitening
Teeth whitening is the crowning touch for a dazzling smile!

At Winston-Salem Dental Group, we improve smiles with cosmetic dentistry every day. Call us to schedule your next cleaning and checkup today!

Time To Upgrade Your Smile?

Cosmetic Dentistry OptionsHave you thought about upgrading your smile? Cosmetic dentistry at Winston-Salem Dental Group offers many remarkable possibilities for your smile.

The quickest and least invasive procedure is light teeth whitening. The results are dramatic, and teeth whitening side effects are minimal.

If your teeth are slightly crooked, but require no orthodontic work, porcelain veneers could be the answer. Porcelain  veneers are translucent, wafer-thin covers that are permanently attached to the front of teeth. They correct chips, cracks, stains, and other imperfections.

Another option is clear braces from Invisalign. Clear braces have no wires or metal; in fact, they look like an athlete’s mouthguard. A series of aligners gradually bring teeth into proper alignment. People love them, because they can be removed for meals and to brush your teeth, and are so subtle, others may not realize you’re wearing them.

To find out more about Invisalign clear braces, and how cosmetic dentistry can upgrade your smile, please call us at Winston-Salem Dental Group to schedule an appointment.

Not All Smile Makeovers Are Created Equal

Bethania cosmetic smile makeover

In this post from Winston-Salem Dental Group we’re going to talk about smile redesigns. Some people wonder if  the term is synonymous with cosmetic dentistry.

Are the placement of four veneers considered a smile makeover? Well, yes and no. If your smile is attractive and healthy except for some chips in your upper front teeth, veneer placement may remedy the few cosmetic problems and result in a stunning smile.

Generally, however, a complete smile redesign combines several carefully-chosen cosmetic dentistry procedures performed at the same time for a complete smile transformation. In other words, the sum is greater than the parts.

For example, one treatment plan could include crown restorations, veneers for teeth that are misshapen but otherwise healthy, tooth-colored filling replacement for old amalgam fillings, and teeth whitening for the crowning touch.

The effects of a smile makeover from Winston-Salem Dental Group may be subtle, or they may be quite dramatic. With cosmetic dentistry we can customize your smile however you like! We offer extended evening and weekend hours to fit any busy schedule. Call today!

Winston-Salem Wants Silver Screen Smiles

Winston-Salem Wants Silver Screen Smiles

With the constant media coverage of celebrities, many people are interested in having a smile like the stars. With cosmetic dentistry procedures from Winston-Salem Dental Group, you too can have a smile you’ll love to show off.

Many smile makeovers include teeth whitening. There are a variety of ways this can be done. Our in-office whitening procedure can brighten your smile up to ten shades in just one office visit. We’ve also got a take-home kit for those who want to proceed at their own pace.

For missing teeth, we recommend a dental implant. This is a state-of-the-art procedure in which a titanium post is anchored to the jawbone. An artificial tooth goes on top of that. It looks and functions just like a natural tooth. As a bonus, dental implants prevent jawbone recession and the shifting of adjacent teeth.

Porcelain veneers are especially popular. They cover the front of the teeth and are custom-made for each individual patient. These are useful for those with broken, chipped, or stained teeth, or gaps between teeth that they would like to hide.

Enamel shaping, bonding, braces, and gum contouring are other successful treatments that can be used to help your teeth look their best.

At Winston-Salem Dental Group, cosmetic dentistry can make all the difference in your smile. We offer extended evening and weekend hours to fit any busy schedule. Call today!
