Everyone should be happy to smile. But if your teeth are discolored, chipped, or otherwise damaged, you are probably self-conscious about smiling. You may cover your mouth so people don’t see the imperfections you’ve grown to hate and fear, or just avoid smiling altogether. No one should have to deal with the embarrassment and loss of confidence caused by an unsightly smile. Here at Thomas R. Lambert DMD, we are dedicated to providing the services you need to look and feel your best.
If you are looking for a simple way to improve your smile, veneers may be for you. These ultra-thin shells of porcelain are bonded to the surface of your teeth. Customized for your specific needs, veneers will return your teeth to a natural look and healthy appearance. Since they cover your tooth, they not only hide any cracks or imperfections; they also work to protect your teeth in the future. They will even fill in gaps between teeth, making your smile look its best.
Over time, your teeth can become stained by food, drink, smoke, and plaque. No one wants to see a yellowed smile, which is why teeth whitening is such a popular and effective choice for making over your smile. We use KöR Whitening, widely recognized as the most effective teeth whitening system, to safely remove both surface and deep stains. This system offers in office power whitening sessions to ensure a dazzling white smile for difficult or resistant whitening cases.
Many years ago, metal was the standard option for filling a cavity caused by tooth decay. These amalgam fillings actually weaken or fracture the tooth causing irreversible damage or even loss of the tooth. Plus, they look really out of place in your smile. Who wants to see dull silvery metal in their teeth? Modern dentistry now uses resins and ceramics to restore a tooth to its healthy, natural-looking state. Here at Thomas R. Lambert DMD, we also offer zirconia restorations for an incredibly strong solution. What if your problem is a little bigger? An onlay or crown can replace or restore missing or cracked tooth structure. These are custom-made to fit your teeth and last much longer than any large plastic resin or amalgam restoration. They can be made from plastic/resin or ceramics matched to your natural color that will also strengthen the restored tooth.
Nothing looks quite as out of place as a space between your teeth. Even the whitest smile can look bad when you are missing a tooth. To fill in that gap, we offer both bridges and dental implants to provide a safe, natural-looking replacement. A good smile can do wonders. It increases your confidence and even improves how other people view you. Instead of living with a dull, unseemly smile, you deserve a smile that lights up the room.
