Get Your Dream Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry
Alabama Family Dental dentist Dr. Whatley creates beautiful, healthy smiles that look natural. Cosmetic dentistry in Mobile, AL procedures like teeth whitening, cosmetic bonding, and veneers are more popular than ever, and it’s easy to see why. A bright, white smile is important to social and professional success.
Veneers are thin layers of resin or porcelain that are bonded to the front of the tooth. It’s like a false fingernail that effectively hides chips, cracks and stains. Veneers can also be used to close gaps, change the tooth’s shape and size, and make your teeth look more uniform. Veneers are the faster alternative to braces if you have gapped teeth but don’t want to wait.
Veneer application requires some enamel reduction to make room for the veneer. The procedure is relatively quick, but it depends on the number of teeth being treated. We avoid artificial-looking smiles through careful planning and color-matching. Dr. Whatley will select the perfect shade of white that looks healthy and blends in with your natural teeth.
If veneers are not an option, cosmetic bonding is a more affordable solution to minor imperfections like gapped, chipped, and stained teeth. Bonding material is painted on the surface of the tooth, shaped, polished, and adjusted. After a few minutes, your teeth will look brand new. Unlike veneers, bonding can be done without enamel reduction.
Teeth whitening is one of the quickest ways to improve your smile. Many patients are amazed that one trip to their dentist in Mobile can change their teeth dramatically. Dr. Whatley provides several teeth whitening options that are safe and produce guaranteed results. Our in-house bleaching is a one-time procedure that can lighten your teeth up to six shades in just one session. This method can remove even the most stubborn stains caused by smoking, antibiotics, and years of drinking coffee and red wine. If you prefer to whiten your teeth at home, Dr. Whatley also provides take-home whitening trays.
Your dentist may also recommend other preventive dentistry procedures for you to ensure an overall healthy dental hygiene.
