Teeth Whitening and Porcelain Veneers
One of the most common goals our patients have when seeking cosmetic improvement is a whiter smile. Professional grade teeth whitening gels assist in this endeavor by lifting external stains, restoring them to their previous bright shade.
Some teeth cannot be treated by whitening alone. In some cases, they have to have their structures changed for a more uniform smile appearance after whitening treatment; in others, the stain originates from inside the tooth, which whitening gels cannot treat. In these cases, the tooth can have its shape and coloration improved with a porcelain veneer.
Fillings, Crowns, and Bridges
Traditionally, any treatment designed to restore the structural health of a tooth, as well as those meant to replace, were made of metals that detracted from the treated area’s aesthetic qualities. Our Bellingham dental practice would argue that metal-free restorations are important dental treatments because they give patients healthy smiles without negatively impacting their appearance. Additionally, Dr. Chester’s training allows him to provide a natural-looking prosthetic of exquisite quality that best supports your bite.
Composite fillings replace the structure of a tooth lost to decay. The resin used to make these blends in with the white coloration of the treated enamel. Porcelain crowns completely cover a tooth to rebuild it after significant decay, all while maintaining the natural shade of the original tooth. If a tooth is lost, a porcelain bridge replaces it and maintains an ordinary appearance.
Traditionally, if you lost a significant amount of teeth, your only option was to wear a loose-fitting full denture or a partial that used metal clasps around your natural teeth. The advancement of implants has given our patients another option.
If you need to recover from tooth loss and want something more secure than dentures, Dr. Chester can help you receive dental implants. Implants are one of the most effective restorative treatments available in dentistry, and they are the most natural-looking teeth replacements. The materials used to make the new teeth, as well as the discreet positioning of the implant itself, make these restorations indistinguishable from the natural teeth.
