A gleaming smile full of white teeth boosts self-image and self-confidence. Stains on your teeth or other physical imperfections can take the wind out of your sails in many of life’s social settings. Fortunately, Dr. Param Gill has several different cosmetic dentistry options to restore or enhance your smile. The options he presents at his Turlock, California clinic will be based on the nature of the imperfections and your goals.
Dental stains on the teeth in your smile can vary in severity. Most penetrate so deeply into tooth enamel that they can’t easily be improved by the whitening products sold in stores. Fortunately, Dr. Param Gill can administer a dental bleaching treatment to remove even the deepest, set-in stains. The professional techniques and whitening agents he employs can remove stains that have set deep into tooth enamel.
If your smile suffers from physical imperfections like chips or pre-existing fillings, Dr. Param Gill might recommend restoring your smile’s appearance with dental veneers. These are basically thin porcelain shells that shaded to a lustrous white. Dr. Param Gill will cement these shells onto the faces of each tooth in your smile with a strong dental adhesive.
The porcelain material used in the dental veneers will not be as receptive to future staining as natural tooth enamel. This makes it easy to maintain your white smile in the future.
If you have a tooth that has been compromised by a large chip or an old filling, Dr. Param Gill might recommend restoring the tooth with a porcelain crown. This will fully replicate the entire tooth enamel layer from the same dental-grade porcelain used in dental veneers.
