We had so much fun at our On The Dunes Summer Party. This year our team from Goldstein Dental Group, Jaffe Dental Group, and Oakwood Dental Group came together for a fun and relaxing group outing. It is so enjoyable to relax, celebrate, and spend time with our co-workers. We have such an incredible team! We played Fowling, which is similar to bowling but with a football at On the Dunes Bar and Grill. What a blast! We also were able to feast on some great food. The get together was a little treat to thank our staff for the exceptional work they do each and every day at the office. It does not go unnoticed.
Cosmetic dentistry is a great way to fix teeth that are stained, crooked, gapped, or damaged. Cosmetic dentistry is any dental work that enhances the appearance of the teeth, gums or bite. Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the color, position, shape, and size of your smile.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays, also referred to as indirect fillings, are molded tooth coverings made in a dental laboratory. Indirect fillings are done when there is too much tooth decay to support a traditional filling. If there is significant damage, an onlay is used to cover the entire surface of the tooth.
Composite bonding repairs damaged, decayed, or discolored teeth using materials that resemble tooth enamel color. First, the dentist drills out the decay. He or she will then apply a composite and mold it into the shape of the tooth. The last and final step is to use a high-intensity light to cure the tooth.
Dental veneers consist of medical-grade ceramic. They are small caps that go over your teeth. They look realistic and fix everything from crooked, cracked, or damaged teeth. The veneer is applied to the front of your teeth using an adhesive.
Your smile wields more power when it is enhanced by cosmetic dentistry. You are more likely to approach a person with a big bright smile than a person with an ugly smile. Visit your local dentist to get your cosmetic work done and bring that bright smile back to its former glory.
