The statistics prove it: we’re living longer. The numbers also show that we’re seeking out methods to maintain our health and our healthy appearance. We’re working out and paying attention to what we eat, but we’re also looking to make aesthetic improvements with the help of professionals – like our trusted dentist.
Cosmetic dentistry methods can be used as a tool to help improve a number of issues with your teeth, some cosmetic, others more structural. And the results are looking really good on you.
We’ve come a long way from the days of our grandparents, who were much more likely to have teeth pulled, even opt for dentures as the only answer for failing teeth. Now we can work to make sure our natural teeth last a lifetime by taking advantage of all the advances in home and dentist care.
What you do now
Even though the idea of flossing has been around for 200 years, lately we’re really getting the message — and getting it done. Flossing every day is proven to help us avoid gum disease and plaque build-up that can cause cavities and tooth loss.
What your dentist does now
At Dr. Barney’s, we always try to focus on restoring teeth and doing all that is possible to help you avoid losing any. We combine high tech options for conserving teeth with traditional approaches, depending on your needs.
Here are just a few of the ways we are putting cosmetic dentistry to work for you:
- Porcelain veneers
These “covers” for your teeth don’t require removing any tooth structure. Veneers cover over imperfections such as stains or chips, and your teeth can be made to appear straighter.
A modern version of dentures, these “false teeth” are made to look like your own. But unlike dentures, they are permanent, so they function and are cared for just like your natural teeth.
- Professional whitening
The most popular form of cosmetic dentistry, teeth bleaching involves a series of in-office treatments that give your teeth quicker and longer-lasting results.
