November 24, 2015
Hard to believe, but 2015 is about to close and the New Year of 2016 is about to begin. The end of the year always brings holiday parties, office gatherings and family get togethers. So, do you have your holiday outfits picked out? Regardless, of what you wear, a beautiful smile is the accessory that complements any dress or suit—even Santa’s suit! If your smile could use a pick-me-up before the beginning of holiday season, then consider one of the cosmetic dentistry solutions from Dr. Thomas G. Peters at Farmington Valley Dental in Farmington, CT.
One of the most common, quick and convenient cosmetic services available is teeth whitening. Dr. Peters and his team whiten and brighten patients’ teeth with power whitening by Zoom! This service combines powerful at-home whitening with the speed and effectiveness of in-office whitening. The first step involves wearing bleaching trays at home for 14 consecutive nights. This treatment prepares your teeth to better absorb the oxygen of our in-office treatment. The second step is the one hour office treatment that is activated with a special light. The finished treatment leaves your smile as white as it can be!
If your smile is compromised by more than stains or discoloration—chips, cracks, misshaped teeth, slightly crooked or irregularly spaced teeth—then porcelain veneers may be the ideal solution. Normally, these various imperfections would require a number of different treatments. But with porcelain veneers, we can essentially hide each one of these flaws and give you a smile that is beautiful, natural looking and strong. Veneers are micro-thin sheaths of dental porcelain or composite resin materials that Dr. Peters individually designs for each tooth and adhesively bonds to the front of teeth that are visible when you smile.
Also called a dental crown or a cap, a porcelain crown fully encapsulates a damaged tooth to preserve and protect the tooth. Crowns are appropriate for a tooth that is chipped, cracked, broken or severely damaged by decay. A crown strengthens a tooth, protects problem areas on a tooth, and allows your tooth to function normally.
Tooth Colored Fillings
When we find evidence at one of your regularly schedule dental checkups, Dr. Peters can repair that tooth with a tooth-colored filling. Made of composite resin materials, a tooth-colored filling matches the natural color of your tooth and is also a conservative method of restoring your tooth’s health; a tooth-colored filling requires less drilling, thereby preserving more tooth structure and leaving you with a stronger and more durable tooth.
