Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

by Rupa Govindarajan, DMD

What Cosmetic Dental Procedures Does the Sam Bass Family Dentistry Offer?

Dr. Rupa Govindarajan offers a full set of cosmetic dental procedures. Those include professional teeth whitening and composite fillings to porcelain crowns, caps, and veneers. Also available are porcelain fixed bridges. If you have concerns about the condition of your smile and want to make improvements, the best place to start is with a consultation exam where Dr. G can examine your mouth and then discuss with you all of the options available to you. From there you can make an informed decision about what is best for you.

What Is the Difference Between a Porcelain Crown and a Veneer?

A veneer covers a single surface of a tooth; a porcelain crown covers all surfaces of a tooth. Porcelain crowns are also known as caps.

Can I Hide My Metal Fillings?

Absolutely, although "hide" is not a good word. One option for removing metal fillings from your smile is to replace them with composite fillings that are color matched to your teeth's natural color. This is a process that is done in steps. The metal fillings are removed and in their place, a new composite material is installed. You can opt to do one tooth at a time or replace your metal fillings in sections.

I Am Not Ready for Dental Implants. Is There Another Option?

Porcelain fixed bridges are an option to replace lost teeth. If you are not ready for dental implants or you cannot undergo the surgery required to place the titanium posts, then you can opt for a porcelain fixed bridge. This is an option that is different from a partial denture because the bridge is fixed whereas a denture is removable. If you are unsure which is the best option for you, talk with Dr. G. She will evaluate your mouth and give you a list of options that would work for your specific case.
