Drs. Brev & Donald Bedford COSMETIC CONCERNS
It hardly comes as a surprise that cosmetic, or aesthetic, dentistry has grown to be so popular among patients. After all, straight, white teeth are as essential to appearance as nice skin and coiffed hair. The most sought-after procedure is tooth-whitening, which can be performed in-office, at home, or a combination. The most aggressive yet painless tooth-whitening techniques result in smiles several shades whiter in one office sitting. Next on the list of patient popularity are veneers used to correct cracked, chipped, discolored, and worn teeth. These ultra-thin tooth coverings made of porcelain or composite materials look like natural teeth, only they are perfect. If a less-expensi 'e option is desired, resin bonding provides a simple, effective method of tooth supplementation.
The development of advanced techniques has enabled us to change your smile overnight. Nothing conveys good health and enhances your smile more than clean, white teeth! If you have questions about cosmetic dentistry, please call BEDFORD FAMILY DENTISTRY. We provide the best care possible by evaluating your needs individually.
