How much can tooth contouring change my smile?What our experts say:
Dr. Ronald E. Goldstein says: Tooth contouring or ‘cosmetic contouring’ as it is know in the profession, can be a great compromise for mildly crowded, chipped or over-erupted teeth in creating an illusion of straightness. It’s best to choose a dentist who is a good artist and has experience in cosmetic dentistry so he or she can show you what your teeth can look like cosmetically contoured and then deliver the results.
Can a gum lift erase my gummy smile and how much will it hurt?What our experts say:
Dr. Maurice Salama says: Yes, gum surgery can be performed easily today utilizing lasers and ultrasonic instrumentation. This can often be performed using a minimally invasive procedure (MIP), which is not painful and heals much faster.
With a porcelain crown, does the color stay forever?What our experts say:
Dr. David Garber says: The essential color of the porcelain crown should stay forever. However, some of the added superficial stain may slowly abrade away.
What’s the best type of crown?What our experts say:
Dr. David Garber says: The best type of crown really depends upon your specific needs. Gold crowns in the back of the mouth where no one sees them require less tooth removal or preparation, keeping your tooth considerably stronger. Today the new all zirconium crowns can do very much the same and in a tooth colored material. However, if you need optimum esthetics particularly in the front of the mouth, the all-ceramic crown, such as the lithium disilicate reinforced ones, provide for a more attractive match or blended outcome. Last, porcelain fused to metal crowns are time tested so work well, but are generally not as natural looking as all-ceramic crowns.
What is the difference between a home teeth whitening kit and one provided by a dentist?What our experts say:
Dr. David Garber says: The predominant difference between the home teeth whitening kit and the one provided by the dentist is the strength of the active ingredient in the bleaching product and, most importantly, the personal monitoring of the patient for any problems that might arise in the tissue or the underlying teeth.
