Hi, my name is Dr. Geren. My dental practice, Mt. Vernon Center For Dentistry, has been serving the Alexandria, VA, area since 1983. Today in my Mt. Vernon dental blog, I would like to highlight four ways you can improve your smile.
1. Teeth Whitening is quick and non-invasive. External tooth whitening occurs when teeth whitening agents bleach the teeth directly. This can be done in your home or in the office of your dentist.
2. Dental Implants are another common procedure that many Alexandria residents seek. A dental implant is secured into the jawbone to replace the roots of a lost tooth. A crown is then attached to the implant to replace the missing tooth. Along with improving appearance and restoring tooth function, the dental implant does double-duty by helping to maintain bone support.
3. Dental Bonding can be done with various materials such as porcelains and composite resins. With recent advances in cosmetic dental procedures, these materials can more precisely replicate natural tooth structure and natural appearance. This procedure is commonly used to correct chipped or cracked teeth.
4. Periodontal Plastic Surgery is a terrific solution for gum recession and cosmetic irregularities. Gum tissue is removed or added to give the appropriate framework to the teeth.
I hope this post has helped you to get better acquainted with some highly effective cosmetic dentistry treatments. A combination of procedures can be used to give Alexandria dental patients a complete smile redesign.
