Teeth Whitening and Veneers
Teeth whitening is a dental procedure we perform several times a week at Ganger Family Dentistry. It relies on the use of bleaching products to whiten teeth and remove stains. Teeth whitening can be done in a single in-office sitting, multiple in-office visits, or over weeks at home.
Veneers are thin coverings that are attached to the front surfaces of teeth. We use them to cover teeth that can’t be whitened or ones that are broken, chipped, or crooked. Veneers have helped dentists make a lot of progress in smile makeovers. You don’t need to worry about them as they should last about 10 years after they’re applied before they need replacement.
Implants and Bonding
When a tooth is broken or chipped, we can use composite resin to replace the missing parts. This is called bonding. The resin we use is carefully matched to the color of the rest of your teeth so no one can tell the difference. Like we said, if bonding can’t be done, we can use veneers.
Implants are the most popular way of replacing missing teeth. A titanium screw is attached to the jawbone, and then on a subsequent visit, the artificial tooth is placed on the titanium screw. Implants are effective, durable, and look great.
If you take care of your implants and dental health properly, your implant(s) can last a lifetime. Just make sure to brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss at least once.
