There are many reasons to smile in life, but for some people, showing their smile is wrought with embarrassment because they don’t care for the appearance of their teeth.
The good news is that if you don’t like your smile, there are cosmetic dental services available that can make your teeth so beautiful, you can’t wait to show them off.
At Lake Erie Dental, Dr. Kevin Sambuchino can give patients the smile of their dreams with cosmetic dental treatments such as teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, tooth-colored fillings, dental implants, dental bonding, and invisible braces. Whether your smile is discolored or misshapen or you are missing teeth, you can have the smile you have always dreamed of. And with digital photographic software, Dr. Sambuchino can show you what you will look after treatment—before you even get started!
As we get older, our teeth often lose the whiteness we had when we were younger. Sometimes lifestyle choices, such as smoking or drinking coffee, can dull the color of our teeth. Professional teeth whitening can make your teeth many shades lighter—in just one trip to the dentist!
This popular cosmetic dentistry procedure is an affordable way to dramatically change your smile. At Lake Erie Dental, Dr. Sambuchino uses the Zoom Teeth Whitening System for excellent results.
If your teeth are uneven, chipped, or discolored, you might benefit from porcelain veneers. These wafer-thin shells of porcelain have a similar translucency to your natural teeth. When they are bonded to the front of your teeth, they look completely natural—only better! Veneers are a great way to camouflage dental problems, giving you a straight, white, even smile. Veneers are resistant to staining, so your smile will stay beautiful for years to come.
Porcelain crowns have several uses, including strengthening a damaged tooth, protecting a tooth that has had a root canal, and topping off a dental implant. They are also used cosmetically because they can improve the appearance of a damaged tooth.
Unlike the crowns of the past that used metal, giving the bottom of the crown a dark outline, all-porcelain crowns look much more natural. Crowns can be shaped and colored to blend in perfectly with your natural teeth.
If you have an old filling, you are well aware of the dark color of the traditional amalgam fillings. While these were effective in preventing the spread of decay, they did not provide a very esthetic result. Today’s tooth-colored fillings are made of a composite resin material that is not only durable but contains no metal.
The composite fillings are made to blend in with your teeth, so you can’t even see them. This makes composite ideal for filling cavities at the front of the mouth.
When patients come in needing a combination of cosmetic and restorative dental procedures, this is referred to as a smile makeover.
Erie dentist Dr. Kevin Sambuchino can replace missing teeth, repair chipped or broken teeth, or straighten crooked teeth—depending on what the patient needs. The processes will vary from patient to patient, but the result will be the same: a beautiful smile that is even and straight.
