Cosmetic Dentistry: More Than Just a Beautiful Smile

Thanks to modern advances in dental technology, cosmetic dentistry is better than ever before. Each year, millions of patients nationwide improve their smiles and their self-confidence with any number of cosmetic dentistry procedures. The numbers aren’t surprising when you realize that one study by the American Dental Association found that nearly 75 percent of survey respondents indicated that a person’s smile is their most important physical feature.

If you are suffering from stained, discolored, broken or chipped teeth, you know all too well the impact of having a less-than-attractive smile. Through his patients, Dr. Rob Harrell at Adult Dentistry of Ballantyne does too, which is why he has dedicated his professional life to helping people achieve the smiles of their dreams.

Dr. Harrell offers numerous cosmetic dentistry solutions for teeth problems. Just as important as improving aesthetics, these procedures also help promote the long-term health of the teeth and gums.

dental-porcelain-venners-ballantyne-charlotte-ncPorcelain Dental Veneers are one of the best ways to rejuvenate teeth that are stained and discolored, or even misaligned. Veneers can also help protect compromised teeth and minimize plaque and bacteria buildup within the mouth. Nowadays, dental veneers are more effective than ever, as porcelain has a very natural glow and is highly resistant to staining.

one-day-crowns-cerec-charlotteCEREC Same-Day Crowns are the latest tooth restoration solution for decayed, broken or otherwise damaged teeth. Adult Dentistry of Ballantyne offers and recommends CEREC for all types of dental restoration for patients in Charlotte, NC.

porcelain-dental-crowns-ballantyne-charlotte-nc-1Another cosmetic dentistry procedure that offers an excellent prognosis for long-term oral health is the porcelain dental crown. Dental crowns are used to repair badly damaged teeth by providing an effective cover that protects them from ongoing decay. Again, thanks to porcelain, dental crowns are nearly identical to natural teeth and every bit as strong. Countless patients have benefited from porcelain dental crowns, as they are able to chew and speak with ease and smile with pride.

dental-bridges-of-porcelain-ballantyne-charlotteSimilar to crowns, Porcelain Dental Bridges are the ideal cosmetic dentistry solution for replacing missing teeth. The gaps left in the mouth by missing teeth are highly prone to collecting harmful plaque and bacteria, which can spread to neighboring teeth and compromise their health. Adjacent teeth have a natural tendency to shift toward the gap, leaving the smile misaligned and further prone to decay. By replacing missing teeth with dental bridges, Dr. Harrell can prevent shifting and protect the entire mouth from harmful microorganisms. Plus, porcelain dental bridges are beautifully luminescent and improve the aesthetics of your smile immeasurably.

implant-dentistry-ballantyne-charlotte-nc1Dental implants are a relatively new and exciting cosmetic dentistry solution. Like bridges, dental implants are frequently used to replace missing teeth. However, dental implants are far more effective and permanent than dental bridges. Many patients find that their ability to speak and chew with implants is every bit as natural as when they had their own teeth. To the untrained eye, dental implants are identical to real teeth.

If you are unhappy with your smile for any reason, call or email Adult Dentistry of Ballantyne today to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation with Dr. Robert Harrell. He will be happy to discuss the many cosmetic dental procedures that are available and help you decide which will allow you to smile with pride. During your consultation, a complimentary digital smile preview (an $85 value) will be created to show how you will look when your treatment is complete.

Dr. Harrell and the entire staff at Adult Dentistry of Ballantyne in Charlotte, NC, believe in giving patients the utmost in comfort and relaxation during each visit.

Above all, Dr. Harrell wants his patients to have the best dental care and dental experience possible.
