Is your tooth cracked or simply misshapen? Has it become discolored from age or a stain? Downtown Family Dentistry of Leesburg offers multiple cosmetic treatments to enhance your smile. For example, we can use professional teeth whitening to make your teeth several shades brighter; this can be done in a single hour-long appointment or over the course of two weeks with the help of a take-home kit. Metal-free crowns can restore a tooth’s shape and appearance, and porcelain veneers can be used to address multiple cosmetic flaws. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Pham today to learn more about the cosmetic options available at our practice.
If you’ve ever seen a famous actor and envied their perfect smile, you likely have seen porcelain veneers in action. These ceramic coverings can resolve nearly any aesthetic flaw to give you a smile that would be worthy of the red carpet. And what’s more, porcelain veneers can address multiple imperfections at the same time. If you have chips, cracks, gaps, or discoloration, this effective treatment can dramatically improve the look of your teeth and give you confidence in any situation.
Lumineers are very similar to porcelain veneers, except they are even thinner! As a result, we do not need to remove any enamel from the front surfaces of your teeth to make space for the ceramic shells. With this innovative treatment, we can achieve the perfect smile you want without making a permanent change to your natural teeth. Our team can help you determine whether you’re a good candidate for Lumineers.
After you’ve experienced damage to your teeth from decay or an injury, the last thing you want is a metallic restoration to show everyone exactly where you’ve had dental work. That’s why our team offers metal-free restorations made from high-quality materials. From ceramic crowns to our tooth-colored fillings, we can provide restorations that blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile to create a natural, aesthetically pleasing look.
If you’re considering porcelain veneers or Lumineers, you should also think about direct bonding. Instead of hiding your teeth’s flaws with ceramic, direct bonding uses composite resin—just like tooth-colored fillings—to create the look you want for your problematic teeth. This flexible material can be sculpted into any shape and shaded as desired. Direct bonding is more cost effective than porcelain veneers and Lumineers and can be completed in just one appointment.
If you’re looking for a dramatic change in a short period of time, our in-practice whitening may be the right treatment for you. We use powerful solutions that contain high concentrations of peroxide, the bleaching agent, to remove deep-set stains. In about an hour, we can brighten your smile by as much as eight shades. You certainly won’t get these kinds of results from over-the-counter whitening solutions. So, if you have an important event coming up, contact our team for an appointment!
At Downtown Family Dental of Leesburg, we provide more than one way to get the amazingly white teeth that you want. With custom whitening trays and our professional-grade whitening solution, you can brighten your smile from the comfort and convenience of your own home over the course of about two weeks. Unlike store-bought whitening methods, you should begin to notice results after a couple of days, but continue the treatment for the full two weeks to achieve your ideal shade.
Sometimes, an aesthetic problem doesn’t have anything to do with the teeth themselves but rather with the gums. Some patients have excess gum tissue, otherwise known as a “gummy smile,” which makes their teeth look small and out of proportion. If this is the case for you, your dentist can recontour your gums to show more of your teeth’s enamel and elongate their appearance to create a more balanced and pleasing look.
When you’re accustomed to seeing your smile a certain way for so long, envisioning the changes you want to make can be challenging. Our dentists and our team can use digital imaging technology and our Virtual Smile Design software to manipulate a picture of your teeth into what they will look like after a particular treatment. That way, you can have a more precise end goal in mind and know what you can expect from your procedure(s).
Does your smile need a complete makeover? Do you think it would take several complex procedures to get you your perfect look? Our dentists can create a personalized treatment plan just for you and give you a set of teeth that you’ll be proud to show off in any situation, no matter the condition of your smile currently.
