Get fast and instant results from a dentist. Yellow teeth or stains on the teeth is one of the top reasons why individuals seek treatment from a cosmetic dentist. These days, everyone wants a white and healthy smile. But many of the foods and drinks that are consumed daily, including alcohol, coke and red wine, can cause teeth to yellow or leave stains behind. And while there are many products you can buy from the drugstore to try to remove these stains yourself, many do not work quickly or produce the best results. If you are looking to whiten your teeth quickly, a cosmetic dentist can help you get the results you want.

The veneers can correct crooked teeth, stained teeth and close gaps. Long-lasting procedure that requires little more than routine maintenance. Porcelain veneers have long been used to alter the smiles of many of Hollywood’s top movie stars. But this procedure has trickled down to everyday people who want the perfect smile. A veneer is a thin sheet of porcelain that replicates the exterior of your tooth. It is bonded to your tooth, helping to disguise your natural appearance with a perfect one. This can help to elongate your teeth, make your teeth look whiter and brighter, help to hide flaws, such as calcium deposits, and give you a straighter or more even smile. Bone Grafting – Providing Support to Implants Bone grafting may involve tooth extraction or wisdom teeth removal. Grafting is an oral surgery that helps support implants and prevents loose teeth. Bone grafting is a dental surgery so only qualified candidates are eligible. If your jaw bone has deteriorated, bone grafting may be needed before implants can be placed. The number one reason why the jaw bone deteriorates is because you have lost your natural tooth and the empty socket has caused this deterioration. Bone grafting helps to give the bone the strength it needs to support a dental implant. This helps to ensure that your procedure is successful and the implant will hold for the rest of your life.

This allows a patient the ability to eat and drink the foods they enjoy, without worrying about their dentures slipping or falling out. Gum Lift & Gum Graft Procedures Gum graft works to fix receding gums. Gum lift solves the problem of a gummy smile. Both treatments have very fast healing times. If the gums in the mouth are receding, the teeth that the gums are holding in place can become loose. In addition to this, it may show off more of the teeth and cause them to look elongated, which some people do not like. If you have receding gums, a gum graft adds gum tissue to the area, usually from the roof of your mouth.
