Cosmetic dentistry has been called an art and a science, and it is easy to see why. There can be a fine line between improving imperfections to the teeth to make a smile look as good as possible, without fundamentally changing the characteristics that make each person's smile unique. Dr. Terry Fayad, a cosmetic dentist in Danvers, MA, provides cosmetic and restorative dentistry treatments designed to give patients the smile they've always wanted, while also addressing periodontal and oral health needs.
Perfect Your Smile with Dental Veneers in Danvers, MA
Even with good oral hygiene habits, our diet and lifestyle will take a toll on the cosmetic appearance and overall health of our teeth and gums over time. The most common cosmetic dental problem, staining and discoloration, can often be solved with professional teeth whitening treatments by a dentist, if the stains are caused by irritants like tobacco, coffee, tea, red wine, dark berries and soy or tomato sauce. Because they affect the enamel (the top layer of the teeth), surface treatments can be used to remove them.
Other types of stains, such as those caused by trauma or medication, result from damage to the dentin, the layer of the tooth below the enamel. Because this type of stain develops from inside of the tooth, surface treatments like bleaching or gels won't work. Dental veneers are the best option to correct this type of dental stain.
In addition to whitening, veneers also reshape and resize the teeth to close minor gaps, repair chips and cracks, and to improve the shape and overall symmetry of the smile, without drastically altering what makes a patient's smile unique.
