Many of us feel that our smiles are most striking when our teeth look especially white, but unfortunately, soft drinks, coffee, tea, and tobacco can leave behind ugly stains. To help you restore your gleaming, bright white smile and to give you an added boost of confidence, we offer many options, such as custom teeth whitening kits.
Dental crowns, or dental caps, are used for both restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Crowns can help enhance the visual appearance of discolored, chipped or otherwise traumatized teeth, and can also be used to rebuild teeth that have suffered decay, breaks, or other issues that have caused them to lose strength. Dental crowns can be a great solution to long-term wear on a tooth that has a heavy chewing-load.
Root Canal Therapy
Inside every tooth there is a core of tissue, blood vessels and nerves that extends to the tooth's roots in the jaw called the dental pulp. Sometimes, due to a range of different causes, this pulp may suffer damage. It may be because of neglect, decay or accidental injury. Should this damage or decay advance far enough, the pulp and tooth itself will die and require a tooth extraction or root canal therapy.
Tooth extractions can sometimes become necessary despite good oral health. It may be needed because of decay, fracture, bone loss or infection. This can of course be avoided with regular checkups and examinations. Yet an extraction can also become necessary when a tooth is severely damaged or chipped due to accident or injury. It may also be the case that, after a careful examination, your needs are best met with an implant or partial denture device.
One of the most versatile options in cosmetic dentistry is porcelain veneers. They are thin shells used to cover the tooth, which can be optimal for many cosmetic and restorative needs. At Dr. Louis Diamandakos & Associates, we can help you improve your smile from stained, chipped or crooked teeth to a beautiful, straight, gleaming smile.
