Cosmetic Dentistry in Carrollton
Thanks to the tremendous advances in dental technology, treatment techniques and the development of state-of-the-art materials, there truly isn’t anything that Carrollton cosmetic dentist Dr. Capua can’t fix in a smile. No matter what type of imperfection is making you unhappy about your dentition, we offer the cosmetic dentistry treatment you need to have a smile that exudes confidence and beauty.
For decades, dentists were restricted to filling cavities with an amalgam of metals. These silver fillings served their restorative purpose, but they left an unavoidable dark spot in a patient’s smile. If you have some of these unsightly fillings that you’d like to be rid of—or if one of your teeth has developed a new cavity—Dr. Capua can replace old fillings and repair decay with tooth-colored fillings. These fillings are made of composite resin materials that are blended to match the existing color of your tooth. No one but you and Dr. Capua will ever know you’ve had a filling.
Sometimes all a smile needs to look better is a bit of color—and by color, Dr. Capua means white. We know that our patients have different preferences and different schedules. That’s why we offer both in-office teeth whitening as well as a professional grade whitening kit you can use at home. Our in-office system only requires about an hour of your time to significantly brighten your smile. Once the whitening gel is applied, a special laser light speeds the whitening process. With our take-home kit, you’ll receive custom-fitted mouth trays and professional strength whitening gel. Simply fill the trays and wear them according to Dr. Capua’s instructions.
Porcelain Veneers and Crowns
Porcelain veneers may be the ideal solution for you if your smile is plagued by several different cosmetic imperfections. Chips, fractures, permanent stains and discolorations, even teeth that are slightly crooked can be corrected with porcelain veneers. These thin coverings are made of sturdy dental porcelain. Dr. Capua designs each custom crafted veneer to fit perfectly over its corresponding tooth. Once cemented to your teeth, the veneers combine to create a perfect smile.
Similarly, crowns are custom designed to fit over a tooth that has been damaged by tooth decay, gum disease or injury. Crowns not only restore the natural appearance of a tooth, but also the functionality of a tooth. With porcelain veneers and crowns, your smile can be both attractive and strong.
