Here are some of the cosmetic dentistry services we offer
Porcelain Veneers Conceal Surface Flaws
Porcelain veneers are thin shells that cover the front of the tooth. They are stain-resistant and durable, lasting up to a decade with proper care. Veneers look, feel, and function much like natural teeth. Your veneers are custom-crafted in a lab to fit your tooth with seamless precision.
If you dream of that dazzling "Hollywood" smile, veneers are the ideal solution because we use them to redesign your smile completely. Porcelain veneers can change the shape, shade, and size of a tooth in one restoration, providing a more uniform look.
Dental Bonding Is Versatile for Cosmetic Dental Results
Bonding is a less invasive procedure where your Antelope Creek Family Dentistry professional uses composite resin to correct or diminish many tooth imperfections. We also use composite resin for tooth-colored fillings because it hardens and polishes to appear much like tooth enamel. This also allows us to match the material to your tooth's shade to nearly invisible the repair.
Like porcelain veneers, we use dental bonding to address these conditions:
- Wide gaps or uneven spacing between teeth
- Misshapen or under-sized tooth
- Chipped or cracked tooth
- Tooth discoloration
- Exposed tooth roots
- Tooth sensitivity
Unlike porcelain veneers, dental bonding is performed in-office without outside lab work. This makes bonding a more cost-effective, though less durable, option.
Tooth-colored Fillings Are Tooth Repairs Incognito
If you have a cavity, a tooth-colored filling will help fix tooth decay with a strong material that strengthens and protects from future decay. In addition, unlike unsightly amalgam fillings, tooth-colored fillings look natural and are entirely metal-free!
One of the many reasons people choose tooth-colored fillings is that amalgam fillings can be easily seen and make your smile look dull and worn. They also contribute to tooth sensitivity and expand and contract from temperature changes. Unfortunately, these characteristics can lead to further damage and space around the filling, leading to its loss.
On the other hand, tooth-colored resin composite is durable and won't change shape, so it won't make your cavity worse. For patients with a metal allergy, tooth-colored fillings are a safer option, not to mention much more attractive.
Professional Teeth Whitening in Lincoln, NE
If you have yellow or brown teeth, one quick and simple way to brighten your smile is professional teeth whitening. We offer the Boost Opalescence™ system for a safe and robust whitening treatment in both a take-home and in-office option.
Boost Opalescence is an ideal option for effective teeth whitening. The potent gel is activated immediately before application, ensuring it works at its freshest. In addition, the formula is thicker, so the gel stays put, and it's certified gluten-free and completely free of animal products.
Zirconia Crowns Are Beautiful and Durable
Dental crowns restore severely damaged teeth by capping them entirely with a durable cover. Many crowns are made from a strong porcelain material but can suffer damage. Metal crowns are more stable but are unsightly.
Our zirconia crowns are highly durable and strong so that they can withstand chewing and biting forces for several years without sacrificing looks. They are also biocompatible, meaning they're less likely to provoke a bodily reaction or cause inflammation.
