Teeth whitening involves a bleaching method used to brighten teeth. The process targets the natural color of tooth enamel and brightens the enamel in order to produce a whiter smile. At Gettysburg Smiles, our teeth whitening procedure will produce superb results, leaving you with a bright and healthy-looking smile. The KOR whitening system – ranked as the most effective and reliable method of whitening teeth – consistently produces long lasting results for patients. Teeth whitening is becoming the preferred solution for improving the aesthetic of teeth. The need for teeth whitening comes from a number of reasons including:
- Natural wear of tooth enamel
- Staining of yellowing of teeth
- Stained teeth due to medication
- Excessive fluoride within teeth
Porcelain veneers consist of thin shields that are designed to cover the surface of weak or withering teeth. Veneers are designed to improve your appearance by creating a smile that is evenly structured. With the help of an AACD accredited master ceramist lab technician, we create custom porcelain work that patients are happy with. Patients can wear a
trial set of veneers before the final set is placed. This trial set
assures the patient is happy with the appearance, comfort and function before
the final veneers are placed.
Full Mouth Rehab
Full mouth rehabilitation refers to the entire reconstruction of teeth using various cosmetic and restorative dental procedures. Rehabilitation can involve replacing sets of teeth as well as fixing bite position. If you have severe wear on your teeth, Dr. Rita Tempel provides services that will restore the function of your teeth. Our procedures replace or correct the imperfections of teeth and can relieve jaw pain and headaches. To find out what cosmetic procedures could work for you, schedule an appointment at our Gettysburg, PA office for a consultation that will assess the extent of the mouth rehabilitation you need.
Composite fillings mend tooth cavities by filling them with a tooth-colored resin. Achieve a white and natural looking smile by eliminating metal fillings and using a solution that maintains your smile while fighting tooth decay.
Dental implants act as a replacement for missing or lost teeth and provide a secure solution for traditional dentures. Dental implants are drilled into the base of the jawbone and act as a restored root for teeth. As a more effective and durable means of obtaining false teeth, dental implants will allow you to achieve the natural appearance you are looking for.
To protect a tooth from breaking or further decay, a porcelain crown may be needed. Porcelain crowns are tooth-shaped molds or “caps” that are placed over a withering tooth. Caps help to restore your tooth’s natural size and shape and enhance the appearance of your smile.
Porcelain bridges are an option for replacing missing or lost teeth. Acting as a literal bridge between remaining teeth, porcelain bridges are false teeth that fill the space of missing teeth. If you are looking to fix an unsightly gap in your teeth, then porcelain bridges may be an option for you.
If you are looking to enhance the natural aesthetics of your teeth, then cosmetic dentistry in Gettysburg, PA may be right for you. Call Dr. Rita Tempel today to schedule a consultation!
