When teeth get fractured or severely damaged, sometimes a dental crown can be placed over them as a means of additional support and improve its appearance, alignment, or shape. Unlike dentures, crowns are permanent fixtures that are cemented onto your teeth or implants.
Unfortunately, many of our favorite indulgences such as coffee, wine, or chocolate have the ability to stain our teeth. Even with meticulous care, our teeth will overtime lose much of their original shine. To get your teeth their whitest, we use a product called ZOOM. ZOOM is a safe and effective procedure that uses a special gel which is activated by low-intensity light. The light activates the hydrogen peroxide in the gel which whitens your teeth. This combination has been shown to whiten teeth by 6-10 shades. Contact NWI Center to speak to a specialist about your teeth whitening options.
Dental bonding is a great way to repair teeth with minor chips, fractures, or stains. Bonding is a quick and inexpensive procedure in which a white, composite material is applied to a tooth thereby fixing signs of damage. It can be considered a more aesthetically pleasing alternative to silver fillings. Additionally, the composite material forming dental bonds is a better insulator than the silver used in traditional fillings, and as a consequence, your teeth will feel more comfortable. If you are looking for a reliable and affordable cosmetic solution to your damaged teeth, talk to a dentist about dental bonding.
