Improvements to the smile, sometimes it's simply taking a tooth that might have a little jagged edge or a point, and I'll have a request: can we smooth or adjust certain teeth, whether it's worn or just appearance. The next step might even go on as further as saying, well, whitening the teeth. We know we're hearing toothpastes are out there and they're trying to do the same, but the professional whitening that we offer where we make a custom tray to fit over the teeth and we give a take-home gel, and it's about two weeks and about a half hour a day where patients will whiten and lighten their teeth. Now the next step of cosmetic may be that we have spaces, we have discolored teeth, discolored older fillings and such, and so we're able to use our high-tech plastic called composite resin, and with the ability to match shades, we have a spectrum to work with, so we can do what's called direct bonding.
Further along with more cosmetic work that somebody might want to think about more long term is instead of the direct composite is to consider porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are basically a facing that's bonded to the outer surface of the tooth. It's very strong enamel. It helps to close spaces if we need to, and lighten teeth that may be discolored deeper into the tooth structure. But we are using all-porcelain material. In the past, the crowns or caps, we've seen gold, but then there are the others that have porcelain on top, but there's some metal. The metal has always been standard of care for so many years, but with, more recently with technology, we're able to use all-ceramics now, and it's much, much stronger. We're able to fabricate those single crowns here in our office, as well as utilize our local lab to fabricate those porcelain veneers or crowns.
