Cosmetic Dentistry Expertise
Have you lived for years with relatively minor defects in your smile? Many common cosmetic dental problems are also accompanied by pain, discomfort and perhaps anxiety. You may be surprised at how easily the defects can be corrected using modern cosmetic dentistry technology and techniques.
The cosmetic dentistry procedures that are right for you can be determined by discussion between you and a skilled and experienced dentist such as Philadelphia cosmetic dentist Dr. Lindsey F. Marshall. At her practice, you can take part in an initial consultation where you and Dr. Marshall will look at any dental problems you might have and consider possible solutions.
Cosmetic dentistry deals with the aesthetics of a person’s smile and requires specific skills and an artistic eye. It requires post-graduate dental training, which Dr. Marshall has attained at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI).
Some of the most common cosmetic dental problems are:
- Missing teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Mis-matched sizes
- Gaps between teeth
- Gummy smiles
Treatment for Common Cosmetic Dental Problems
The advanced technology and techniques of today’s cosmetic dentistry allow Dr. Marshall to customize each procedure to your needs. You can have a cluster of treatments organized as a smile makeover, or just undergo one or two well-chosen procedures.
Sometimes teeth whitening is all a person needs. When staining is too deep to remove, porcelain veneers can be a good solution, especially since they can also correct any small defects like slight crookedness or a small gap.
Perhaps you would like to have all of your old metal fillings replaced with safer and more pleasing white fillings. If you have a gummy smile, it can be easily corrected with laser gum recontouring.
During your consultation, Dr. Marshall will take all the time necessary to identify problems and explain the best options for correcting them. If left untreated, many dental problems can worsen and become more painful, so it is best to address them promptly.
