Everyone wants a beautiful, white smile. You may be unhappy with your smile for any number of reasons. Teeth can chip or crack. The gaps between your teeth may be wider than you’d like. Gums that are too long or have receded may take away from your smile’s impact. Or your teeth may just not be as white as you’d like.
Whatever you don’t like about your smile, the office of Dr. K.C. Sykora, D.D.S., offers a number of options to help you realize the smile of your dreams.
Chipped or Cracked Teeth
Dental bonding has revolutionized the treatment of chipped or cracked teeth. Using a composite resin material that is carefully matched to the color of your teeth, Dr. Sykora can invisibly repair chips, fix cracks, and even hide discoloration. The entire process is painless and, depending on what needs to be done, can often be completed in a single convenient session.
Gaps Between Teeth and More
Dr. Sykora offers a number of options to remove unsightly gaps. The composite resin used in dental bonding can shaped to slightly widen one or more teeth. The result is a perfectly natural appearance and a smile you’ll be proud to show.
Dental veneers are an excellent way to hide gaps between teeth, and offer a number of other advantages. Veneers are very thin pieces of ceramic that are permanently affixed to the front of your teeth. Since the veneers can be shaped, they can cover a number of issues:
- Discolored teeth
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Teeth that are misaligned or misshapen
And, veneers won’t interfere with your ability to chew.
Veneers are a permanent procedure, so be sure to visit our Veneers page to learn what’s involved. And Dr. Sykora will be happy to discuss the procedure in detail and answer any questions you may have.
If your teeth aren’t as white as you’d like, it can make smiling an uncomfortable experience. We offer several options for whitening your teeth at home to achieve the beautifully white smile you want.
Opalescence white gel and custom-designed whitening trays provide safe, gentle teeth whitening over several weeks. Generally, you’ll wear the trays for a prescribed length of time each day until your teeth reach the desired degree of whiteness. After that, you simply wear the the trays one or two nights per month to keep your teeth looking great.
Ultradent whitening strips are another convenient home whitening option. For a very reasonable cost, you can enjoy the results you’ll get from these professional whitening strips that cover more teeth than the typical over-the-counter strips.
If you’re curious about how much whiter your smile can be, consider starting with the Ultradent whitening strips. If you like what you see, but want more, Opalescence is the next step to a gorgeous, white smile.
Our staff will be happy to discuss the right option to help you have a bright, beautiful smile.
When Your Gums “Gum Up” Your Smile
Gums that cover too much of your teeth keep your smile from achieving maximum impact. And gums that have receded, exposing the yellowish dentin layer that is normally below the gumline, can be really embarrassing.
Dr. Sykora offers pain-free, bleeding-free, and quick healing laser dentistry treatment to reshape your gums so that they enhance your smile instead of detracting from it. And for gums that have receded, he offers Gum Recession Treatment that grafts tissue to replace what has been lost due to periodontal disease.
It takes very little irregularity to make a tooth look misshapen. Dr. Sykora offers
Teeth Contouring and Crown Lengthening services to gently recontour the offending tooth. By removing a very thin layer of enamel, your teeth now balances with the rest of your smile. Since only the enamel is touched, this is a completely pain-free procedure.
You’ll love the change to your smile after a single session!
