A beautiful smile says a lot about the person wearing it. If you have major or minor imperfections that you’d like to correct, Clements Dental can offer a variety of services to help improve the appearance of your smile.
The quickest way to enhance the appearance of your smile and remove stains caused by food, beverages, or medications is professional whitening. We offer in-office options that can whiten teeth up to 8 shades in 30 minutes. We also offer in-home options that whiten in either a three-day or two-week time frame, depending on the product selected. Getting a beautiful, white smile is less costly than you may think. We have a product to suit every budget.
Cosmetic bonding can correct chipped, broken, misshapen, discolored, or gapped teeth. Your dentist can apply a dental composite material that looks like enamel onto the surface of a tooth and sculpt it into shape before hardening it with a high-intensity light to bond it to your natural tooth. The result is a restoration that blends invisibly with the surrounding tooth structure to create a more attractive smile.
White/Tooth Colored Fillings
When tooth decay has led to the development of a cavity, or a small hole, in the tooth, we will remove all areas of decay and replace with a filling made of composite resin. Composite resin fillings have surged in popularity because their appearance perfectly matches the natural appearance of teeth. In cases of more extensive decay, porcelain inlays and onlays are an advisable alternative.
Inlays + Onlays
The dentists will remove the decay and take an impression of the area to be restored. The laboratory works from this impression to create a restorative inlay or onlay, usually out of porcelain, that fits perfectly on the tooth. Inlays cover one or more tooth surfaces, where onlays are used on the chewing surface of the tooth. The inlay or onlay is cemented securely into place, for an incredibly durable, stable tooth restoration.
If you have a tooth that is chipped, cracked, badly decayed, or otherwise weakened, our dentists may suggest a crown for your treatment. Crowns maintain the aesthetic appearance of teeth by covering the entire visible surface of the tooth, while adding significant reinforcement and protection to the tooth. After removing all areas of decay, we will take an impression of the tooth to be crowned and send it to the dental laboratory to create the crown. Porcelain crowns are extremely natural looking; virtually indistinguishable from other teeth, making them an ideal choice for visible teeth.
