Carefully Changing A Tooth’s Shape

Why does that one tooth seem to stand out when you smile? Sometimes, the problem with a person’s appearance is that a tooth is not the right shape or size; this can be a naturally occurring issue, but it can also stem from issues with damage or gradual wear and tear. At our Santa Monica, CA dentist’s office, we can provide different cosmetic dental services that are capable of improving how you look by targeting and treating these issues. The right care can make meaningful changes while still preserving your smile’s natural look. We should note that in cases where a misshapen tooth affects your health or bite function, we can offer a custom crown that improves how you look and also provides useful protection.

Does A Certain Tooth Stand Out And Draw Unwanted Attention?

It only takes one misshapen, damaged, or otherwise flawed tooth to interfere with your smile quality and take away your confidence in the way you look. Whether the problem is a recent one thanks to a physical injury or something that has long left you doubting your looks, there are services that can help. At our practice, we can provide help with a custom porcelain veneer, or we can offer a slimmer Lumineer to correct the problem while requiring less preparatory work. We can also provide positive results when we cap the tooth with a custom crown.

Placing A Custom Veneer Or Lumineer To Improve Your Smile

Both traditional porcelain veneers and slimmer Lumineers are capable of making meaningful changes to your appearance. By placing this type of restoration on the front of a tooth, we can improve its shape and size, hide problems with damage, and improve its color. These slender shells are strong enough to maintain their position, shape, and general appearance for many years, making them effective at providing lasting solutions for your smile concerns.

Capping A Tooth With A Dental Crown

It may be necessary to do more than just improve the way your tooth looks by capping it with a veneer. When there are concerns about bite support or the health of the tooth in question, we can recommend that you have a dental crown put in place. Doing so provides important functional protection, and it will allow you to bite and chew in a way that feels more natural and comfortable.
