One simple strategy can help maintain white teeth: brush at least twice daily. Even better, brush after every meal and snack. Brushing helps prevent stains and yellow teeth, especially at the gum line. Both electric and sonic toothbrushes may be superior to traditional toothbrushes in removing plaque and surface stains on teeth. Don’t forget to floss and use an antiseptic mouthwash daily.
A dental veneer is a thin, porcelain molding customized to cover the front of a tooth. They are specially made for you and are bonded onto your teeth to create an aesthetically pleasing smile. They can cover gaps between teeth, mask stains and discoloration, or even correct teeth that are misshapen or crooked. Our cosmetic veneer service brings back your youthful, beautiful smile in just a few short visits!
Dentists use crowns to replace teeth that may be broken, severely worn down, or missing. These crowns are custom-made to fit over the entire tooth all the way from the gum. A crown may benefit your smile if a tooth is damaged or decayed beyond repair. We produce custom-milled crowns on-site so your new smile can be ready the same day.
Want Brighter, Whiter Teeth?
You may be able to get rid of superficial stains by yourself.
Teeth stains develop slowly and become more noticeable as we age. Our at-home tooth-whitening system can remove deep and surface stains and change your natural tooth color.
A natural-looking and feeling dental procedure, dental implants can replace missing teeth for improved chewing and speaking – and the best part is, it’s permanent. Dental implants can replace what you have lost with incredible functionality and results that both look and feel like natural teeth.
A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. Dentistry at Carolina Forest performs a full range of anterior and bicuspid (premolar) root canals in our Carolina Forest office. (Patients needing molar root canals are referred to an Endodontist.)
Fixed bridges are a great way to restore your dental health and appearance. If you have one or more missing teeth, a dental bridge can fill the gap with one or more artificial (false) teeth. A bridge is typically made of crowns on either side of the missing tooth or teeth supporting the pontic (false tooth) and is cemented in place. To get a dental bridge, you need healthy teeth on either side of the missing ones.
Dentures are artificial teeth and gums that are formed to your mouth and created to replace lost or removed natural teeth. Dentures can either be full or partial, meaning they can either replace all teeth or just a few that are missing. We can help you with custom-designed dentures made to fit your mouth and visually matched to your existing teeth.
