Cosmetic Dentistry is where the Reardon Dental’s major theme of “We Make Smiles”, really comes together! It is also where having so many dental specialties “Under One Roof” including our own dental lab makes so much sense.
Sometimes the challenge of making self confident smiles is as simple as cleaning or whitening but it may require more structural work like cosmetic bonding, crowns, porcelain veneers, or even orthodontic procedures, implants, bridges or dentures.
At Reardon Dental we have all these services and more!
By having specialists in all the major dental procedures we can much more easily consult in-house to give any special need or circumstance the very best recommendations and treatment plans.
All of this expertise accrues to the benefit of our patients, giving them the very best in modern, specialized, dental care with the most caring and friendly dental team in Chester County.
Dental Crowns: Teeth are often restored using silver or composite plastic fillings. However, when too much of a tooth’s structure is removed to support fillings, dental crowns or “caps” may be needed. Dental crowns may be needed to:
- Restore a tooth when it is unable to support a large filling
- Attach bridges
- Protect a weak tooth from fracturing or restore fractured teeth
- Cover badly shaped or discolored teeth
- Cover dental implants
A crown essentially covers a tooth to restore it to its natural shape and size. This permanent covering fits over your original tooth to strengthen or improve the appearance of the tooth. Fitting a crown generally requires at least two visits to the dentist’s office.
If you have teeth that have stains that cannot be removed by bleaching, and veneers or crowns are not necessary, then cosmetic bonding might be a good option for you. Cosmetic bonding is an affordable, quick and painless way to repair many cosmetic flaws or injuries, including:
- Gaps in teeth
- Spots or stains
- Chipped teeth
Dental bonding sculpts individual teeth without requiring removal of any tooth structure. This technique bonds a composite material that looks, acts and feels like the real thing, to an existing tooth. This procedure usually doesn’t require the use of an anesthetic; is relatively quick to apply; gives an immediate result and is less expensive than veneers.
Do you have discolored or crooked teeth, teeth with spaces between them or teeth stained by fillings? You can change the shape, color and length of your teeth using porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin, durable shells designed to cover the front of the tooth. They are typically made of porcelain and are extremely durable, stain resistant, natural-looking and easy to maintain.
Porcelain veneers are custom-fitted to your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel and bonding the veneer to your teeth using a safe, high tech polymer resin. You can expect veneers to stay bright and strong for many years by performing good oral hygiene.
