Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular dental treatments available today. These thin, ceramic pieces are bonded to the front of the teeth to create a flawless finish. Patients who wish to conceal imperfections in the smile can receive veneers in two office visits. As an experienced cosmetic dentist, Dr. Dinning has a keen aesthetic eye, helping him provide patients with attractive, natural-looking results.
Dental crowns serve both restorative and cosmetic purposes. A crown completely encases the tooth and protects it from further damage or decay, while simultaneously preserving the appearance of the smile. Crowns are an effective treatment for patients who suffer from severely damaged or decayed teeth.
Dental implants are the most effective dental treatment available for patients who have missing or severely damaged teeth. Implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed in the jawbone to serve as a root for a restoration such as a dental crown or bridge. Implants are strong and durable, and provide incomparable comfort while talking and chewing.
Dr. Dinning wants patients to know that effective dental treatment doesn’t have to detract from their smile. Composite fillings, also known as white fillings or tooth-colored fillings, are an appealing alternative to the traditional metal-based fillings that can attract unwanted attention to the teeth. Composite fillings seamlessly blend with the natural teeth while providing safer protection against tooth decay than their amalgam counterparts.
In instances where patients suffer from minor cosmetic imperfections such as stains or cracks in the teeth, dental bonding is a fast and effective treatment option. Dr. Dinning places a tooth-colored resin on the teeth to cover up these flaws and improve the appearance of the smile. The result is natural-looking and long-lasting.
