Mansfield, TX Cosmetic Dentistry Quiz

2. True or False: Teeth whitening can remove discoloration.

3. True or False: Dental bonding repairs teeth in one visit.

4. True or False: Porcelain veneers can correct multiple smile imperfections.

Answer Key

1. True. Amalgam fillings are made of metal, which means they stand out when placed onto a tooth. As part of our approach to cosmetic treatment we offer tooth-colored fillings. Made from composite, they are metal-free and can be shaded to blend seamlessly with the tooth.

2. True. We actually offer two different types of teeth whitening. First, we have a home-based kit you can use that involves wearing gel-filled trays for a certain amount of time daily. This removes discoloration and reduces the sensitivity that often accompanies store bought options. Our second system is Zoom! Whitening, an in-office technique that employs a bleaching gel and curing light to erase stains in under an hour.

3. True. If a tooth becomes chipped we can restore the lost structure with dental bonding. Using a composite material, we build up the missing structure and reshape the tooth as the material cures. The entire procedures takes a single visit and can transform the appearance of your tooth.

4. True. Veneers are simply a thin wafer of porcelain placed onto the teeth. Lifelike and stain resistant, placing them instantly rejuvenates the tooth’s appearance. We can use the to mask stains or misalignment and reshape a damaged or malformed tooth.
