How Can Porcelain Veneers Improve My Smile?
You can hit the redo button on your smile with porcelain veneers! These state-of-the-art coverings mask the appearance of chipped, cracked, stained, misshapen, and otherwise imperfect teeth. Porcelain veneers are completed in two visits to Indigo Dental and can last for decades with proper maintenance. Plus, because dental porcelain is highly resistant to stains from coffee, red wine, and other highly pigmented foods and beverages, your veneers will remain the same beautiful shade of white for years after their application.
What Are Inlays & Onlays?
Also known as indirect fillings, inlays and onlays fill larger cavities without marring the appearance of your teeth. The natural-looking porcelain blends flawlessly with the surrounding tooth enamel. Unlike traditional fillings, which are applied directly to the cavity, inlays and onlays are manufactured separately and then applied to the tooth after.
Will I Receive Silver Dental Fillings?
When cavities do occur, they are quickly treated with tooth-colored fillings, which are made out of white composite resin. Biocompatible and natural-looking, this option rebuilds teeth in a more conservative and healthy fashion than traditional silver (amalgam) fillings. Tooth-colored fillings can also improve minor flaws in the front teeth, fixing chips, cracks, discoloration, and other imperfections.
Can Composite Dental Bonding Reduce a Gap?
When minor dental improvements can make a big impact, composite bonding provides a wonderful treatment! It’s a non-invasive, painless, and fast way to improve the appearance of imperfect teeth. Using a natural-looking composite resin, your dentist can improve the size, shape, color, and overall appearance of the teeth that show when you smile. Composite bonding is completed in just one visit to Indigo Dental, and is an effective alternative for patients seeking an affordable option in cosmetic dentistry.
How Can Professional Teeth Whitening Brighten my Smile?
One of the most common treatments in cosmetic dentistry is professional teeth whitening, which erases noticeable stains and discoloration from your beautiful smile. With two whitening options available here in Daytona Beach (both in-office and at-home whitening), you can choose the speed at which you wish to reveal your brighter results. After your treatment is complete, you can maintain your brighter smile by avoiding the things that caused them to discolor in the first place. Touch-up kits also help your results last longer!
Can I Whiten My Teeth At Home?
Of course you can. In addition to our in-office whitening service, Indigo Dental also offers customized kits for patients who’d prefer to brighten their smile at their own pace and in the comfort of their own home. We’ll provide you with oral trays that are suited for your unique smile and professional-strength whitening gel; your only job is to wear the two together whenever you have the time in your schedule. After a few weeks of constant use, patients should discover noticeably beautiful improvements.
Can I Change My Gummy Smile?
Yes! All too often, your gum tissue can be the culprit behind a smile that looks overly uneven or short. At Indigo Dental, we use aesthetic gum recontouring to reshape the gum line, remove excess tissue, and reveal beautiful, healthy tooth structure that was unnecessarily hidden from view. The final result should be a symmetrical and uniformly pleasing set of teeth that you feel confident in.
Gum recontouring is also sometimes recommended for restorative treatment. For instance, if Dr. Lloyd needs to place a new dental crown but there isn’t enough healthy tooth structure situated above the gum line, recontouring this tissue can make it much easier for our team to rebuild the tooth.
Can I Preview My New Smile?
We understand – committing to a cosmetic transformation can be a big undertaking, and one that you may feel nervous about. After all, what if the results don’t actually match the beautiful image you have in your head? Thankfully, Dr. Lloyd can give you a valuable peak into the future with our digital smile simulator! All we need is a current picture of you and your smile, and our team can edit its appearance to reflect the improvements that certain treatment options will create.
If you want to straighten teeth without the hassles of traditional bracket and wire braces, our team offers a cosmetically superior alternative – ClearCorrect. Using clear, plastic alignment trays, this orthodontic system moves teeth into the ideal position over the course of just eight to eighteen months of treatment. Patients simply need to wear alignment trays for two weeks at a time. Then, exchange the current aligners for the next set in the series until they achieve their desired end results.
