Top 4 Cosmetic Dental Procedures
Cosmetic dental procedure. As a top respected dentist in Texas, Dr. Randy Parham has performed cosmetic dental procedures on thousands of patients throughout his 35 years of practice. He stays current on dental-related research and only uses proven present day cosmetic materials. History of services at the Fort Worth Dentist’s practice has proven that the following are the top most inquired and requested cosmetic dental procedures in his practice.
Teeth Whitening or Bleaching
There are several different delivery systems for whitening teeth. One way is in the dental office, in as little as 15 minutes; this procedure whitens the teeth up to four shades lighter in one sitting. There are also several take home systems that will work equally well but results will take a little longer. The results allow the patient to enjoy whiter teeth for a long time. However Dr. Parham has found that most patients like to do a boost occasionally to maintain their desired result.
This type of procedure has become routine in treatment presented to patients who have one or more missing teeth or patients who wear dentures but do not have enough ridge support to stabilize their denture. Dental Implants are very successful and should be considered for this type of treatment. Implants provide complete stability for denture patients and allow Dr. Parham to replace a missing a tooth or teeth without compromising the adjoining teeth. Many insurance companies now provide coverage for dental implants.
Veneers are the perfect treatment for patients who have tooth discoloration or intrinsic stains on which bleaching has little effect. They are also perfect for the patient who wants straight white anterior teeth or want to change the shape and size of their teeth. Effectively changing the way the teeth look and create a positive effect on the patient’s appearance. Veneers should be made of porcelain only in Dr. Parham’s opinion. Porcelain does not stain like other materials thus the veneers will not change shades. Porcelain veneers mimic the translucency of natural teeth thus making the veneers look flawless and reflect the desired natural looking teeth.
Dental Bonding/ White Fillings
Dental bonding also known as composite resin material, which is tooth colored, is what is currently used to fill decayed teeth. This long lasting material has replaced the old silver alloy amalgam that contained mercury. The beauty of this material is that it can be manipulated to correct teeth that are chipped, broken or crooked resulting in an instanceous natural looking outcome. For many patients these results can be life changing in one appointment.
If you have a need for any of these cosmetic dental procedures, Dr. Randy Parham and his staff can provide a great resource of knowledge for you.
