What is the purpose of a composite filling?
A composite filling is a tooth-colored dental material to restore decayed teeth. Composite fillings are used commonly to change the color of the teeth or reshape disfigured teeth.
What are the benefits of composite fillings?
Aesthetics and increased strength from bonding are the main advantages of composite fillings. Composite fillings are bonded to the tooth thus supporting the remaining tooth structure, preventing breakage and insulating the tooth from excessive temperature changes. If severe tooth conditions exists, a cosmetic dentist may recommend porcelain crowns or fixed dental bridges. Carlsbad dentist Dr. William Neff will provide appropriate recommendations after a comprehensive dental exam.
Can porcelain veneers mimic real teeth? Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel. The veneer is attached to the front of the affected tooth and unlike dental crowns, the procedure involves subtle preparation to the existing tooth to accommodate the porcelain veneer.
Are porcelain veneers appropriate for my dental issue? Veneers may be recommended to cosmetically enhance tooth color, size or shape due to superficial stains, gaps between teeth, and fractured teeth. Porcelain veneers make even the darkest teeth appear whiter.
Cosmetic dentist, Dr. William Neff, will individually sculpt porcelain veneers making it nearly indistinguishable from a natural tooth. The advantages to custom made porcelain veneers, unlike natural teeth, are that they are resistant to coffee stains, wine stains, and cigarette smoke because they are very hard, non-porous and comprised of high tech materials. There may be alternate solutions available. Communicating with your cosmetic dentist and clearly identifying what cosmetic improvements you desire is critical for a successful result. Dr. William Neff can help you achieve your smile makeover and through cosmetic imaging technology present a digital photo of your ideal beautiful smile!

The most popular and affordable cosmetic dental procedure is teeth whitening. With millions of over-the-counter teeth whitening products and at-home teeth whitening online video tutorials, it’s easy to get confused.
Among these options, teeth whitening under dentist supervision remains the most safe and most effective method for brightening your teeth. Over-the-counter whitening products are not customized to fit your dental layout; often the teeth whitening trays improperly fits in the mouth or the gel may leak from ill-fitting trays resulting in gum irritation and ineffective whitening treatment. When it comes to whitening, a cosmetic dentist is your most reliable resource. Dr. William Neff discusses how the teeth whitening process works in your individual case, closely tracks your progression, and treats any issues can arise such as gum sensitivity. Consult with a cosmetic dentist at Los Coches Dentistry to ensure you are a good candidate for teeth whitening and learn which whitening treatment is appropriate.
