Here at Chesapeake Family and Implant Dentistry in Chesapeake, VA, Dr. Paul LeTellier is your dentist for tooth colored restorations and cosmetic dentistry—read on to learn more!
Dental crowns are a tooth-colored restoration that can help your smile in several ways. Dental crowns are hollow shells or caps that fit over teeth that have become structurally damaged or aesthetically marred. Once in place, a dental crown blends right into your natural smile and helps the tooth to perform basic functions such as biting and chewing without pain, discomfort, or sensitivity.
Dental crowns can also be placed over teeth with cosmetic imperfections. A crown can be made to look like a flawless version of the tooth it covers, concealing cosmetic concerns, such as stains, discolorations, chips, and cracks. Crowns can even transform the shape of teeth that are crooked or oddly shaped.
Tooth-colored fillings are a type of dental filling used to fill and seal holes caused by cavities. Tooth-colored fillings function just like metal fillings, such as silver amalgam or gold, but they have the advantage of being more discreet. Since tooth-colored fillings closely match the color of natural teeth, they readily blend in so your fillings will not be noticeable to others. Here at our office in Chesapeake, VA, our dentist can help you decide if tooth-colored fillings are the right choice for your situation.
Porcelain veneers are thin covers or laminates placed on the front of teeth to conceal cosmetic concerns, such as discolorations or cracks. Veneers can give teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained, discolored, crooked, or oddly shaped a flawless new look.
