Many people become interested in tooth whitening around the time of a special event, such as a wedding or a reunion. This is because whitening is one of the simplest and most dramatic things you can do to improve the appearance of your smile. Optimal natural whiteness usually occurs with the custom tray bleach system within 7 to 10 days. Let us know if you would be interested in having a brighter, whiter smile!
A lasting way to achieve aligned, beautifully shaped, and white teeth is with porcelain veneers. With this treatment, Dr. Ruff applies a thin, fingernail-like sheet of porcelain to the surface of your teeth. Porcelain veneers preserve and strengthen the natural structure of your teeth while improving their size, shape, and color.
Dr. Ruff may recommend veneers when you have moderately fractured front teeth. She can also use them to hide permanent stains as well as straighten misaligned and misshaped teeth. Porcelain veneers are a great way to achieve a dazzling smile.
Like veneers, porcelain crowns can also dramatically enhance the appearance of your teeth. A crown (also known as a cap) is a restoration that covers the top of a tooth to just below the gum line.
If your tooth is more severely fractured or has other extensive damage, Dr. Ruff may recommend crowns to mask those imperfections and protect and strengthen that tooth. She can also use crowns to correct bite problems, close gaps between teeth, or enhance the appearance of misshaped teeth. If you have older crowns with a classic black line at the gums, Dr. Ruff may suggest replacing these with newer, more natural-looking porcelain crowns. To learn if you can use crowns to enhance your smile, schedule a consultation with Dr. Ruff.
Tooth Colored Fillings
Dr. Ruff can correct your cavities with tooth-colored fillings. These are made from a composite resin which blends in with the surrounding tooth structure. With a tooth-colored filling, you can’t tell where your tooth was damaged. It is even possible to upgrade your old amalgam fillings with the more natural, aesthetic tooth colored type.
When you want to create a beautiful, new smile for yourself, you may need more than one aesthetic service to achieve the look you want. Dr. Ruff can combine our services with a cosmetic makeover. During these sessions, Dr. Ruff will examine your mouth, noting specific factors – the length of your smile, the width and height of your face – in order to create a completely beautiful and unique smile just for you.
Aesthetic Crown Lengthening
Sometimes, the problem with your smile is not your teeth, but your gums. If you flash more gum than teeth when you smile, Dr. Ruff can correct this problem with crown lengthening. With this treatment, the gum line is adjusted or raised to improve the appearance of a smile. Dr. Ruff may also suggest this procedure if your teeth look asymmetrical, too small, overly wide, or too short. If you think your smile is too ‘gummy,’ please schedule a consultation with Dr. Ruff.
