HomeTown Dental offers a wide variety of dental treatments – including teeth whitening, preventative dentistry, dental implants, hygiene services and even cosmetic dentistry. Most people have the notion that cosmetic dentistry is not a financially viable option. But at HomeTown Dental, Lake Worth, we will make sure you are informed of all our finance options . There are many different cosmetic dentistry treatments (white fillings, inlays/onlays, and veneers). All of these treatments are provided at our Lake Worth clinic.
If you choose to opt for white filings, then tooth-colored fillings would be placed within your natural set of teeth to make them appear natural – unlike amalgam or silver fillings which are distinctly visible. White filings are known to last longer in comparison to silver amalgam fillings. But given the kind of advanced materials that we use for our white filings, they can last as long as the traditional silver fillings. However, it is best to switch filings only after consulting a dentist, therefore, you should schedule a consultation with one of our professionals.
Inlays /onlays are needed to take care of larger cavities where a filling cannot serve as a solution. Therefore, an inlay or an onlay is used to repair the biting surface of the tooth. Inlay and onlays are made of porcelain (or a composite material) making them long lasting. Inlays and onlays differ from one another. Inlays are required when the section at the tip of the tooth is damaged. Onlays are used when the damage stretches beyond the tip of the teeth to the external surface of the tooth. They are used on instances when the tooth is not damaged to the extent that a crown needs to be attached to it.
Then there are veneers, which are attached to the visible part of the tooth. These are often used to treat problems such as severely cracked, chipped, unsightly or discolored teeth. They look like natural teeth and are considerably long lasting. Veneers are similar to thin shells of porcelain. There are multiple advantages to veneers. These make teeth appear healthy and natural. Porcelain veneers last for five to ten years before they need to be eventually replaced. If you wish to make your veneers last longer, then it is necessary that you visit the dentists at HomeTown Dental, Lake Worth.
