Does Whitening Toothpaste Work?

porcelain veneers cost Gastonia

Are yellowing teeth getting you down? If so, you are not alone! Some of the most common concerns of our patients at Gastonia Dental Group pertain to getting whiter teeth.

Because many dental products such as toothpastes and mouthwashes say they can beautify your teeth, it’s natural to consider changing your brand of toothpaste.

Whitening toothpastes work by adding chemical agents that can gently polish and whiten teeth. However, these substances can only remove stains that are on the surface of the teeth. This frequently results in whitening by roughly one shade.

On the other hand, in-office teeth whitening procedures that can usually lighten the color of your teeth anywhere from three to eight shades. That is quite a difference!

Once you see the dramatic changes that can happen with in-office whitening, why not go for the whole smile makeover? Using cutting-edge cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers, crowns, inlays, braces, dental implants, bonding, gum contouring, Gastonia dentists are helping patients get the remarkable look they desire.

At Gastonia Dental Group we use cosmetic dentistry to brighten smiles every day. We also offer children’s dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today!

Gastonia Dental Group For A Smile Impossible To Ignore

A lot of people think about the different options they have to slow down the aging process. Whether it is a surgical procedure, botox, hair implants, or a chemical peel, there are lots of choices to help you look more youthful. One excellent choice is porcelain veneers, a cosmetic dentistry procedure from Gastonia Dental Group.

Porcelain veneers will produce a smile that will have people asking you if you have lost weight or started going to the gym because the effect is stunning.

Haven’t you noticed that when you talk with someone who has sparkling, straight white teeth, their smile catches your eye? An engaging smile draws attention away from wrinkles or a flabby belly because a dazzling smile is the first impression others have of you – and it is impossible to ignore!

Our porcelain veneers will improve the color of your teeth, cover chips, cracks, or misshapen teeth. Veneers can lengthen teeth that look too short, fill in gaps between teeth and cover any irregularity your teeth may have. Porcelain veneers reflect light the same way natural teeth do making them a great choice for a smile makeover.

Porcelain veneers are just one of the cosmetic dentistry options available at Gastonia Dental Group. Call our office to schedule a consultation today!

Do You Love Your Smile?

Gastonia Cosmetic DentistryThe people who are the happiest with their smiles have healthy, straight teeth that sparkle when they laugh. But if nature didn’t bless you with attractive teeth, you are not alone. Most perfect smiles you come across are the result of cosmetic dentistry, like what you’ll find at Gastonia Dental Group.

We provide state-of-the-art procedures that deliver dazzling, flawless teeth. You are never too young or too old to improve your smile; but it will definitely make you feel younger!

Two common smile problems are yellow enamel and chipped teeth.

Discolored Teeth

Few Gastonia people have pearly white smiles that stay that way forever. Even with consistent brushing, flossing and regular dental cleanings, our teeth darken as we age. Fortunately, the most affordable procedure is teeth whitening. Picture yourself with a celebrity-caliber smile.

Damaged Teeth

Our teeth work hard for us day after day, year after year. Sometimes they get chipped or cracked in the process. We use porcelain veneers every day to remedy tooth trauma. Cosmetic bonding has been used with fabulous results for many years and bonding is usually a fraction of the price of a crown.

If you have never been eager to show your teeth when you smile or laugh, now is the time to change that with cosmetic dentistry. Call Gastonia Dental Group to schedule a smile design consultation, or a cleaning and checkup.

Improving Smiles with Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is really coming into its own. Trend-watchers say that more and more people are choosing it every day to improve their smiles, with the procedures that are available at Gastonia Dental Group.

We all want to look our best. But cosmetic dentistry isn’t just about vanity; it is good for your dental health. For example, straight teeth in the correct position are easier to care for, and make for a healthier mouth. That probably explains why clear braces are among the most popular cosmetic dentistry options; they can straighten your teeth, and are almost undetectable as you wear them.

Clear braces are not, of course, the only cosmetic dentistry option. Teeth whitening is one of the most popular procedures out there. A lot of people try to get whiter teeth at home, and there is a bewildering selection of over-the-counter whitening products on the market. But none of them – not toothpastes, strips, or gels – can match the power of professional-grade teeth whitening.

Also in demand are porcelain veneers. They can completely transform the appearance of your smile, and like other cosmetic dentistry, are minimally invasive. A thin layer of tooth enamel is removed before veneers are permanently attached to your teeth. After that, you’ve got a mega-watt smile.

These and other cosmetic dentistry procedures can be completed without any pain at all. So if you’re looking to upgrade your smile, or simply restore integrity to yellowed or damaged teeth, we have a procedure for you at Gastonia Dental Group. We also offer children’s dentistry. Schedule an appointment today.

What Is Crown Lengthening?

gummy smile surgeryThe perfect smiles created with cosmetic dentistry at Gastonia Dental Group often require crown lengthening.

Crown lengthening surgery is a safe and effective procedure that exposes more of the visible part of the tooth. Some patients undergo crown lengthening surgery to alter their gummy smile.

A gummy smile refers to upper teeth that appear too short because excess bone and soft tissue covers part of the teeth. When a gummy smile is eliminated, our patients can’t believe how it changes their whole face. They love their new smile which reveals pleasing, symmetrical portions of their upper teeth.

Sometimes, a patient needs crown lengthening because of tooth fracture. When a tooth breaks at the gumline or a crown is fractured, crown lengthening makes tooth structure accessible for the necessary restoration.

If you are seeking a dental smile makeover and live in the Gastonia area, schedule a smile consultation by calling Gastonia Dental Group. We offer general and cosmetic dentistry and extended and weekend hours for your busy schedule. Make an appointment today.
