High-quality Cosmetic Dentistry in Durham
Dr. Blaylock offers a wide range of cosmetic dental treatments and procedures, including:
- Porcelain veneers: Veneers are a quick way to get a beautiful smile. They are perfect for people with teeth that are stained, chipped, or have gaps. They are wafer-thin, shells that will cover the front surface and sides of a defective tooth. Porcelain veneers are less invasive than crowns or orthodontic treatments and offer permanent results. They are custom-made to blend seamlessly with your smile.
- Dental crowns: Crowns, also called tooth caps, fit over an entire tooth for aesthetics and added strength. They are a popular and affordable treatment for many cosmetic reasons including misshaped, broken, discolored, and chipped teeth, and can even close a gap between teeth. A dental crown is basically a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over your natural tooth and cemented into place.
- Tooth bonding: Tooth bonding is a process where a tooth-colored material is bonded to the tooth to improve its appearance. It is used for many cosmetic reasons including badly stained, broken, or chipped teeth. Similar to a dental filling procedure, tooth bonding is typically an easy process completed during one visit with us. Tooth bonding involves tooth-colored resin material using adhesives and a high-intensity curing light.
- Teeth whitening: Dr. Brent Blaylock offers custom take-home teeth whitening treatment. Teeth whitening is a fast, easy way to enhance your smile. Our personalized take-home teeth whitening kit is great for patients who want the convenience of whitening their teeth at home.
