Your smile is often one of the first things people notice about you when first meeting – but what if that isn’t exactly good news to hear? Over time, teeth can suffer from a wide variety of appearance-based flaws, from minor cracks to noticeable gaps to unpleasant discoloration. Thankfully, Miller & Wolf Family Dentistry can offer a helping hand in the form of a personalized smile makeover! Our cosmetic services are more than capable of creating dazzling transformations, and we hope to leave you grinning proudly by the end. Please contact our Hurt practice today to schedule your first appointment with our team.
So you’ve hurt your tooth, and you need a restoration to rebuild its former look and strength. Getting your new dental crown, inlay, or onlay should be a relief, but many patients understandably worry about how their smile will look once the procedure’s complete. After all, noticeably silver and gold materials are still the norm in many dental practices, robbing you of your natural appearance. Thankfully, Dr. Miller and Dr. Wolf offer an aesthetic-friendly alternative in the form of metal-free restorations! Metal-free restorations are crafted from all-ceramic materials that can be precisely matched to your existing tooth enamel, helping patients maintain the high level of confidence they deserve. In addition to being attractive, they’re also 100% biocompatible and less sensitive to temperature changes than their metal-based counterparts.
Direct bonding is the perfect cosmetic solution for patients who need to correct minor smile problems in a fast and effective fashion. Our doctors will apply the perfect shade of tooth-colored composite resin directly to the tooth and sculpt it into a pleasing, natural-looking shape that covers the imperfection you’re wanting to treat (such as a small gap between teeth, chipped enamel, or a stubborn stain). Then, it’s hardened in place with a special curing light, and you’re done! The entire process only takes one appointment, and the improvements can serve you well for multiple years.
Teeth can become discolored and stained over time for a number of different reasons, some of which are completely out of a person’s control. If you’re ready to brighten your look, talk to our team here in Hurt about the possibility of getting an at-home whitening kit. These kits aren’t like the ones you’ll find at the local pharmacy – they’re much stronger, with professional strength bleaching gel and oral trays that are precisely customized for your unique smile! All the patient has to do is wear them consistently each day as instructed, and they can look forward to beautifully noticeable improvements in no time.
