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, and discolored, broken or missing teeth. Dr. Lawrence creates a customized treatment plan for you based on what you desire, your age, your goals and your financial comfort level.
Imagine a whiter, more brilliant smile! Porcelain veneers are a conservative cosmetic approach that makes a dramatic difference in the appearance of your teeth. If you have chipped teeth; crooked teeth; spaces between your teeth; or dull, stained teeth, veneers may be the perfect solution for you. After minimal tooth preparation, Dr. Lawrence will skillfully bond and shape thin films of porcelain to your teeth. You are only a couple of appointments away from having the straight, brilliant smile you have always wanted!
Patients rave about our tooth-whitening program. Imagine removing surface stains and having the white smile you had when you were a teenager. Lawrence Family Dentistry offers a take-home whitening program to help patients uncover a clean, renewed smile!
Porcelain Crowns and Bridges
You can erase years of wear and tear with porcelain crowns. Porcelain crowns cover broken, cracked, or discolored teeth. Crowns are a durable, strong, long-lasting method of enhancing both the look and functionality of your smile. After some preparation, Dr. Lawrence will position a custom-milled, natural looking, porcelain crown to restore and rejuvenate your oral health.
When teeth are missing, your smile undergoes significant changes. Missing teeth cause you to chew differently and may cause mouth pain. Also, 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 your doctor, keeps your smile aligned and your bite functional. Bridges are anchored to existing teeth or crowns 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.
Are you embarrassed about your smile because of decayed, disfigured, or discolored teeth? If so, you may be a good candidate for composite resins. Composite resins (also known as tooth colored fillings) offer a non-invasive way to improve your smile. A composite resin is a mixture of microscopic ceramic and glass particles dispersed in a plastic resin that can be bonded to teeth. The material comes in a wide range of shades and can be molded and sculpted to create almost any shape or contour. The fact that the resin is bonded means that a seal is formed to reduce the chance of leakage, which is common with silver fillings. For years, silver/mercury was the primary material used by dentists to fill cavities. Today, tooth-colored restorations are superior both in appearance and in durability. You deserve only the best, which is why Dr. Lawrence offers tooth-colored restorations. If you have any concerns about the appearance of your teeth, give us a call for an evaluation to see if bonding with composite resin will give you the smile you’ve always wanted, as well as the enhanced self-confidence that goes along with it.
Bonding is a tooth-colored material applied and adhered to the surface of the tooth without reducing the structure of the tooth in most cases. Then, Dr. Lawrence will sculpt the material to create a natural-looking tooth. Bonding corrects chipped and broken teeth, discolored teeth and in some cases, gaps. It is less expensive than veneers but doesn’t last as long and can stain. A benefit of bonding is that generally, the natural structure of the tooth can be maintained.
Do you see a lot of your gum tissue when you smile? Many people with “gummy” smiles do not know that there are treatments available to cosmetically enhance the look of your gums. Dr. Lawrence can re-contour the appearance of your gum tissue. With the addition of beautiful porcelain veneers, your gummy smile disappears, revealing a bright, youthful smile that looks natural and proportioned. The entire process takes just a few visits and because of advancements in cosmetic techniques, your comfort is assured. Call Dr. Lawrence and begin transforming your smile today!
