Most people who are considering cosmetic dentistry are aware of the procedures available to them at Freedom Village Dental in Jacksonville NC.
There are porcelain veneers: a custom made wafer-thin covering permanently attached to the front of a tooth to make it stain-free and perfectly shaped. Veneers can repair small chips and crack in teeth that are free of decay. Many of our patients get minimally invasive veneers on their top six teeth for a dramatic improvement.
Orthodontia has received a lot of attention in the past twenty years with the introduction of invisible and short-term braces. And braces are not only for ‘tweens and teenagers. At Freedom Village Dental, we have seen more adults straighten their teeth to achieve beautiful smiles with discrete orthodontic treatment.
Porcelain crowns have been around for generations but continue to restore decayed or damaged teeth while providing beauty, strength and natural function. Porcelain crowns are also used with revolutionary dental implants to restore missing teeth.
A procedure that is lesser known is crown lengthening. If you feel that your teeth appear too short or that your smile exposes more gum than you would like (a ‘gummy smile’), you may be interested in crown lengthening.
Crown lengthening surgery is a safe and effective procedure that exposes more of the visible part of the tooth while minimizing the vertical length of exposed gum tissue.
Sometimes, crown lengthening is used when a tooth is fractured at the gumline. The surgery makes tooth structure accessible for the needed restoration.
If you would like to find out if crown lengthening is right for you, call us at Freedom Village Dental in Jacksonville NC. We offer general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next checkup today.
