Have you been considering improving the look of your smile? Dr. Amanda Eschelbach, your Nicholasville, Kentucky dentist, has Teeth Whiteningseveral solutions to help your teeth look their best. Three of the most commonly requested procedures are detailed here:

Whitening

Teeth whitening, one of the most simple and cost-effective cosmetic dentistry procedures, can make a huge difference in the appearance of your teeth. By using a peroxide-based whitening gel to break up the stains on your teeth, your smile can be up to eight shades whiter in just a half-hour long appointment at Dr. Amanda Eschelbach's dental office in Nicholasville. This is a comfortable, safe procedure with immediate results.

Cosmetic fillings

When you think about a filling, you're probably picturing a dark metal coating that covers all or most of a tooth. However, if you have a cavity on a tooth that is visible when you smile, your Nicholasville dentist will likely suggest a cosmetic filling to you. These fillings are made of a glass and plastic composite material that is "tooth-colored" to blend in much better with their surroundings. Some people prefer to have cosmetic fillings on all their teeth, regardless of location; in this case, your Nicholasville dentist can replace your old amalgam, or metal, fillings with the composite material.

Bonding

Using a similar material to the cosmetic fillings, your Nicholasville dentist can reshape teeth that have sustained cracks or chips. Bonding can also fill in small gaps between the teeth. This is another painless procedure that can produce dramatic results.

Before performing any cosmetic procedure, it's best to have a thorough cleaning and checkup at your Nicholasville dentist's office to ensure your teeth are healthy.
