Why Choose a Cosmetic Dentist?
If you have any issues with your teeth that affect how you feel about yourself, going to a cosmetic dentist like Dr. Thomas gives you the confidence and peace of mind that you are getting the best treatment. Dr. Thomas specialized in cosmetic dentistry after receiving his dental training and went on to earn accreditation in cosmetic dentistry from the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Dr. Thomas specializes in crowns, bridges, porcelain veneers, teeth whitening and smile makeovers.
Crowns are most often used to restore a damaged tooth to its original shape and size. Crowns are permanently cemented on teeth that have cracked, decayed, or been damaged and can be made of different materials including ceramics, porcelain, or resin. A damaged tooth can affect the integrity of the rest of the teeth, the roots, and open up pathways for decay.
Bridges “bridge” the gap between teeth when one or more teeth are lost due to accidents or death of the root that requires removing the tooth. A bridge is crafted that replaces the missing tooth and attached to the remaining teeth on either side. This fills the gap, improves the ability to chew, and makes cleaning easier.
These wafer-thin custom-made-shells of tooth colored materials are designed to bond to the front teeth and disguise the natural teeth that may be small, chipped, discolored, or any other issues that keep you from having a great smile. The porcelain has the look of real teeth and won’t stain.
Home teeth whitening kits are readily available, but you won’t get the same results as you’ll get with a professional teeth whitening. Dr. Thomas offers Opalescence® Boost, professional teeth whitening that is both convenient and more effective then over-the-counter whitening systems.
Dr. Thomas is dedicated to making sure you are comfortable and happy with your smile as well as assisting you to have a healthy mouth. Other services include tooth extractions, root canals, treating gum disease, and offering sedation when necessary.
