If you aren’t 100% satisfied with the appearance of your teeth, then you’re definitely not alone! Whether due to stains, cracks, chips, or gaps, pretty much everyone has something they would like to change about their smile. Fortunately, with cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Kramer can do exactly that. Using the treatments below, he can make longstanding flaws disappear and enhance every aspect of the teeth to create a truly stunning final result. Getting the smile of your dreams is much easier (and more affordable!) than you might think, and you can learn more by contacting us today to discuss your options for cosmetic dentistry in Selbyville, DE.
With porcelain veneers, extremely thin ceramic coverings are placed on the front of the teeth, and these act like masks to give the smile a more uniform and attractive appearance. This treatment is able to correct multiple imperfections at the same time, and once in place, veneers can be trusted to look great for about 20 years! You can get just one or an entire set completely custom-made in as little as two appointments.
Lumineers are very similar to porcelain veneers, except for one thing: they are much thinner. This means they can be placed onto the teeth as is. With porcelain veneers, a small amount of enamel has to be removed in order for them to lay flat, but this step is unnecessary with Lumineers. It’s a much more conservative treatment that’s still able to deliver fantastic results, and it always leaves the option open for a patient to go back to their natural smile.
In our dental office, patients always get a little more compared to other dentists. If you come to see us with a tooth in need of repair, instead of just giving you a metal crown that will instantly stick out in your smile, Dr. Kramer will provide an all-porcelain one. These can be shaped and shaded to perfectly recreate the appearance of natural enamel down to the finest detail, so much so that only you and Dr. Kramer will be able to tell where your crown is!
Fast, easy, and effective, cosmetic bonding involves applying composite resin to a flawed tooth so Dr. Kramer can literally sculpt it to perfection. Once in place, the resin can be used to cover a small chip, gap, or stain to make it seem like it was never there. After you approve the final look, the resin is quickly hardened with a curing light, and that’s it! This procedure allows many patients to improve their smile in as little as an hour.
Has coffee, wine, tobacco, or simply aging caused your teeth to stain and discolor? If so, our teeth whitening treatments can seemingly turn back the clock and in most cases can make your smile six to ten shades lighter! We can give you a complete treatment in our dental office that only takes an hour, as well we will send you home with your own custom-kit to continue the process. The end result will be a brighter grin you can trust to shine for several months to come.
Whenever you smile, does your gum line overshadow your teeth? We can fix this with cosmetic gum recontouring, which involves removing excess tissue to reveal previously hidden enamel. This can instantly make the teeth appear longer, fuller, and in better proportion to the face, creating a much more attractive smile in a single appointment. Plus, this treatment can lower someone’s risk for gum disease as well!
Before getting a cosmetic treatment, our team can take a picture of your smile and digitally edit it to show you what you’ll look like after receiving porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, or any other procedure you’re interested in. You’ll be able to design your ideal look right alongside Dr. Kramer, and once you love what you see in the simulated “After” image, he can get to work turning it into your actual smile.
