You can look good and have a healthy smile! Most people who are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth do not realize the numerous ways that cosmetic dentistry can heal a smile. Cosmetic dentistry can correct crooked teeth; spaces between your teeth; stained or discolored teeth; chipped, broken, or missing teeth; and, “gummy” smiles. Horseshoe Dental creates a customized treatment plan just for you, based on your age, your goals, and your financial comfort level.
Imagine a whiter, more brilliant smile! Porcelain veneers are a conservative, cosmetic dentistry approach that makes a dramatic difference in the appearance of your teeth. If you have chipped teeth, crooked teeth, gaps in teeth, or dull, stained teeth, veneers may be the perfect solution for you. Horseshoe Dental will skillfully bond and shape thin strips of porcelain to your teeth, creating a straight, brilliant smile that enhances both your appearance and your self-esteem.
Tooth Whitening — At-Home & Zoom!®
Imagine removing surface stains and having the white smile you had when you were a teenager! Anyone can have the confidence that comes from having a bright, white smile. Tooth whitening with Zoom!™ is safe, effective and long lasting.
The Zoom!™ tooth whitening system is a powerful, in-office procedure that produces fast, dramatic results. Horseshoe Dental will apply a specialized gel to your teeth using a customized tray similar to a mouthpiece. The customized tray is comfortable, allowing you to hold it in place for about an hour. During that time, a specialized light source interacts with the gel to break up even the strongest stains and discoloration. By the end of your appointment, you will have a smile that looks like it did years ago!
There is also a Zoom!™ take-home whitening kit available. This do-it-yourself process can be completed in a weekend, and while the results are not as dramatic as the in-office procedure, you will still see noticeable, fantastic results. Talk with Horseshoe Dental for help in deciding what whitening procedure is right for you.
When teeth are missing, your smile undergoes significant changes. Missing teeth can cause you to chew differently and may also cause mouth pain. And, as your remaining teeth work to compensate for the loss, gaps and spaces form that only make the situation worse. A porcelain bridge, custom designed by Horseshoe Dental, keeps your smile aligned and your bite functional. Bridges are anchored to existing teeth on either side of the missing tooth. They are semi-permanent (meaning they can only be affixed or removed by a dentist) and are a long-term restorative solution to your damaged smile.
You can erase years of wear and tear with porcelain crowns. Horseshoe Dental uses a tooth-like crown made of porcelain to restore your tooth after the decay has been removed. Crowns are also used to restore chipped teeth, broken teeth, gaps in teeth, and other damage. Also called “caps,” porcelain crowns mimic natural-looking teeth in both shape and color.
Are you embarrassed about your smile because of decayed, disfigured, or discolored teeth? If so, you may be a good candidate for composite resins, also known as tooth-colored fillings or restorations. When the decay has been removed from the tooth, it is replaced with “filling” material. The new tooth-colored material is bonded to the teeth for a stronger restoration. In the past, amalgam (silver) fillings were placed into the cleaned out portion of the tooth. However, with new advancements in dentistry, you can now have tooth-colored fillings instead of silver fillings, resulting in a longer-lasting, brighter, whiter smile.
Bonding refers to the placement of tooth-colored resin to correct chipped and broken teeth, discolored teeth and in some cases, space between teeth. Bonding is generally considered more conservative than veneers or other cosmetic dentistry. The benefits of bonding include the ability to maintain the natural structure of the tooth and the ability to color and sculpt the resin to create natural looking teeth. Like a natural tooth, the resin may stain with the use of coffee or other staining foods.
