Possible Smile Makeover Procedures
Among other treatment possibilities, Dr. Haney offers dental veneers, bonding, gum contouring, and teeth whitening as options for the ultimate smile makeover. At your appointment with Dr. Haney, discuss any flaws you have noticed in the appearance of your smile. He will use his extensive knowledge and experience to recommend the perfect cosmetic treatments for your unique needs.
Dental veneers can be applied within two dental visits and can completely change the appearance of your smile. Veneers are composed of thin porcelain and are bonded to the front surface of your teeth, also known as your smile zone. These wafer-thin shells can alter the shape, size, texture, and color of your flawed teeth, and even make crooked teeth appear straighter.
A simple solution to make your smile brighter is teeth whitening. Dr. Haney offers multiple teeth whitening procedures at his Knoxville, TN office, as well as take-home whitening options. Zoom and Opalescence are whitening procedures performed in the dental office by Dr. Haney, while NightWhite and DayWhite are take-home whitening kits that he prescribes for patients. If you choose to use a take-home whitening kit, Dr. Haney will instruct you on how to properly use the treatment so that you feel confident and receive the full benefits of the kit. All of these options work better than store-bought whitening products, and provide dramatic whitening results that will leave you feeling like you have a brand-new smile!
Inlays and Onlays
Dental inlays and onlays are an alternative option for metal fillings. They strengthen teeth, while restoring the appearance of your smile. This dental procedure maintains your healthy tooth structure and helps prevent tooth decay from advancing and spreading to other teeth. Inlays and onlays are more esthetically pleasing than metal fillings, but provide the same restorative benefits. If you have old metal fillings that show when you smile or laugh, inlays or onlays can replace those fillings for a more consistent appearance.
Cosmetic dentistry provides patients with more appealing smiles, however it can also provide orthodontic benefits. If you don’t have the time, patience, or money for braces, Dr. Haney can offer cosmetic procedures to straighten your teeth. Veneers and bonding can cover unattractive gaps, leaving you with straighter looking teeth. If you’re unhappy with the gummy appearance of your smile, Dr. Haney can use gum contouring to remove excess gum tissue. Call our office for more information on how cosmetic dentistry provides orthodontic benefits.
The last thing you want after undergoing cosmetic procedures is to remain unhappy with your smile. Dr. Haney reduces this risk by providing smile-design consultations before beginning any smile makeover. After taking your unique skin color, gum color and shape, facial shape, and lip line into consideration, Dr. Haney provides you with prospective images of how your smile will look after undergoing treatment. This allows you the freedom to change your mind about smile makeover treatments before committing yourself to a cosmetic treatment.
