Your Lincoln Cosmetic Dentist Can Help You Smile More!
Welcome to another beautiful day in the Heartland! Summer weather is fine and Cornhusker football season is around the corner. Just thinking about that can bring a smile to your face. At Vacek Family Dentistry, we want you to have a smile that makes you happy and confident. That’s why our practice offers several cosmetic dentistry procedures. Whether you need only one or a combination of procedures to create the perfect smile, your Lincoln cosmetic dentist will work with you to develop a treatment plan that is tailor made for you. Read on to learn more about the cosmetic dentistry treatments that Dr. Vacek and Dr. Gufford offer.
For some people, the problem with their smile may not be their teeth, but their gums. If your teeth look short and stubby, then chances are you have excessive gum tissue that conceals natural tooth structure. With gum recontouring, your cosmetic dentist in Lincoln reshapes the gum line in order to uncover more of your natural teeth. This procedure can also be used to correct an uneven gum line.
If you have a tooth that is chipped, misshaped or a bit too small, then cosmetic bonding can fix that quickly. All your dentist needs to do is apply a little bit of composite resin—the same strong material that is used for a tooth-colored filling—to your tooth and mold a new shape. This is repeated layer by layer until the optimal shape is achieved. Then, we use a special light to harden the composite resin and you’re good to go!
Sometimes, the best way to improve a smile is to just start over. That may sound like a lot of work, however, with porcelain veneers you can have that new smile in only two appointments. Porcelain veneers are slim coverings that Dr. Vacek adhesively bonds to the facial side of teeth that show the most when you smile. Each one is custom made so your smile looks completely natural and fits your mouth and your unique facial features.
Perhaps your teeth are structurally attractive, but just need to be brighter. In that case, we offer take-home teeth whitening kits. We prefer these to in-office treatments, because the results are longer lasting and more predictable. In addition, you’ll be able to give your smile a whitening touch-up anytime you need. We’ll give you custom-fitted mouth trays and professional grade bleaching gel. Fill the trays, wear them according to your dentist’s instructions and you’ll see dramatic results in 10 to 14 days.
