Cosmetic dentistry is more than just improving the aesthetics of the smile. We can address crooked, discolored, and damaged teeth with cosmetic dental care. Repairing teeth creates brighter and straighter smiles and encourages healthy habits. Patients who receive whitening treatments are more likely to reinforce their results with a good diet and oral hygiene routine. Addressing dental injuries and tooth damage can protect teeth, prevent further damage, and create a balanced, comfortable bite. At Dr. John D. Verville Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry, our cosmetic dentistry treatments in Fleming Island, FL, create beautiful smiles for patients.
Cosmetic Dentistry in Fleming Island, FL
With cosmetic dental care, we improve the look and health of the smile. Our cosmetic dental services include:
Dental veneers are thin, shell-like cosmetic restorations covering teeth front and sides. Veneers can cover a single tooth or all teeth in the smile line, addressing discolored, crooked, and injured teeth. Because veneers are made of porcelain, we color-match them to the natural shade of teeth. We can also brighten the appearance of discolored teeth with veneers that are several shades lighter than natural teeth.
Tooth bonding treatment uses a biocompatible resin to cover chipped, broken, and crooked teeth. While dental bonding is similar to treatment with veneers, we usually recommend bonding for smaller dental imperfections that affect one or several teeth. Bonding can also
We offer Zoom! teeth whitening, which provides in-office and take-home treatment for patients’ convenience. This tooth whitening treatment uses the active ingredient hydrogen peroxide to brighten patients’ smiles in one office visit. We can create custom whitening trays for patients to touch up their teeth at home.
Cosmetic Dental FAQs
Read answers to commonly asked questions about cosmetic dental care:
How long do dental veneers and bonding treatments last?
Composite dental veneers can last 5 to 8 years, while porcelain veneers last 10 to 15. Additionally, although bonding treatment is more economical than veneers, bonding can last 3 to 10 years on average.
When will I see results from teeth whitening treatment?
Patients typically see results from in-office Zoom whitening a day or two after treatment. If patients only want take-home treatments, it can take weeks to notice results because it uses a lower concentration of active ingredients.
What do I have to do after teeth whitening treatment?
After you receive whitening treatment in our office, avoid drinking coffee, wine, tea, and soda. Limit your e-cigarette use, and do not smoke cigarettes. Try to avoid foods that can stain teeth, like berries and tomatoes. Instead, eat pasta, eggs, rice, yogurt, and other light-colored foods.
Do dental veneers hurt?
You should not feel any pain during veneer treatment. We use a local anesthetic to numb the teeth and gums to prepare the treated teeth. You may feel discomfort or sensitivity after we place the final veneers. We recommend warm salt water rinses and pain medications post-treatment for a quick recovery.
How many times can you bond a tooth?
Dental bonding treatment needs replacement every 10 years. We can add color-matched bonding material if you have a chip in the bonded tooth, or we may need to replace the material fully. Our team can replace the bonding over several dental visits.
