Find out the many wonderful ways we can revitalize your smile through cosmetic dentistry.
When it comes to giving your smile a makeover, our Zanesville, OH, dentist Dr. Jeff Labishak is always happy to lend a helping hand. From minor alterations to full-on transformations, we can help you achieve the smile you know you deserve. Here are some of the popular cosmetic dentistry options to ponder:
Maybe the changes you want to make to your smile are pretty small, so, naturally, you don’t want to go through invasive or expensive procedures just to fix a small crack or gap between teeth. Now you don’t have to! During dental bonding, our Zanesville, OH, cosmetic dentist places a moldable tooth-colored material over these problem areas to mask them. Bonding is a simple, effective and inexpensive way to fix minor dental flaws without having to get a full-blown makeover. Plus, it can be completed in one visit and it’s completely non-invasive.
Whether you have a tooth that is severely malformed, discolored, cracked, damaged or decaying, there are many instances where a dental crown can get your tooth back to tip-top shape. If there is no longer enough viable tooth structure to support a dental filling, then a dental crown will be the next best option. Crowns are versatile restorations that can be designed to look just like a real tooth. Once a tooth is prepared, a dental crown is made specifically to fit your smile. Once the crown is cemented over the tooth, function, stability and strength are restored.
Losing a tooth can be a serious blow to your appearance, self-esteem and oral health, but if you are looking for a lifelong solution to replacing your missing tooth or teeth, then dental implants could be it. Implants are the only restoration designed to take the place of missing tooth roots. This small metal post is placed into the jawbone where, over time, it fuses together with bone and tissue. Implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth or all of your missing teeth.
Preventive dentistry is the best way to protect your smile from decay and other problems. By investing in your smile now, you can prevent issues in the future, and a dental sealant is a great way to protect your molars from decay. During this non-invasive procedure, a tooth-colored plastic is placed over the chewing surfaces of your back teeth. These chewing surfaces contain a lot of crevices where bacteria and food can hide. Since it’s more challenging to fully brush away plaque and bacteria from these nooks and crannies, a sealant literally seals the top of the tooth to prevent decay.
