Nothing transforms a smile better and in less time than porcelain veneers. Whether you’re dealing with a single imperfection or multiple, these thin, tooth-shaped shells of ceramic can disguise them and make them seem like they never existed. With porcelain veneers, we can instantly whiten teeth, fix cracked and broken teeth, close noticeable gaps, and even straighten slightly misaligned teeth. They are always custom-made for every patient, and you can get them in as little as two to three visits to our office.
Tired of that one small chip or stain that has bothered you for years? We can take care of it in just an hour or less using dental bonding. Dr. Thompson will place a color-matched composite resin onto any damaged/missing enamel and use it to literally sculpt your tooth to perfection. It’s just that easy! This treatment is fast, painless, effective, and one of the most affordable ways to dramatically improve the appearance of your smile.
At Tarpon Shores Dental, we’re often tasked with repairing damaged and decayed front teeth. As you can imagine, a metal crown simply doesn’t provide the kind of solution a patient needs concerning a tooth that shows when they smile, which is why we only use all-porcelain restorations in these situations. Dental porcelain is strong, durable, and can be shaped and shaded to perfectly mimic natural enamel in almost every way, even down to how it reflects light.
Fillings give our practice the ability to repair small cavities and slightly damaged teeth in just one appointment, and now, thanks to tooth-colored fillings, we can do so without affecting the appearance of a tooth. These fillings are made of a composite resin material that can be color-matched to make it seamlessly blend in with the surrounding enamel. Even better, the resin also bonds directly to a tooth, unlike a traditional filling, meaning we’re able to preserve more of a tooth’s natural strength while restoring it.
As the name indicates, this treatment allows us to make a tooth appear longer by increasing the size of the crown, or the part of the tooth that shows above the gum line. This can help address problems associated with a “gummy” smile, and it can also prepare a tooth to hold a crown or porcelain veneer. In either case, this procedure can be done painlessly and in just one visit thanks to our high-tech soft tissue laser.
Everyone enjoys a hot cup of coffee or a nice glass of red wine now and then, but did you know that both of these drinks can discolor your enamel over time? Smoking, aging, and even unlucky genetics can noticeably dim your teeth as well. However, we can now use ZOOM! Teeth Whitening to lift your stains and your self-confidence at the same time! This in-office teeth whitening procedure normally lasts about an hour or less, and it can make your teeth up to EIGHT shades brighter in just one session.
