If you are planning extensive cosmetic dentistry work, you may be wondering whether to do it all at once or one procedure at a time over an extended period. Here are some factors to consider:
Porcelain crowns were first used in the 1800s. With the refining of metal casting methods in the 1900s, crown dentistry advanced significantly.Today, crowns are strong, comfortable and are made to match your surrounding teeth. Dental crowns (also called caps) cover the entire visible portion of the tooth and are cemented in place. Crowns are used to strengthen teeth that have been worn down or weakened by decay or injury. Crowns are also used to restore the original shape of a tooth or solely to improve the appearance of a tooth.
Whitening your teeth is an advanced dental procedure that you won’t want to get wrong on the first try. That’s why I always recommend a visit to Stephen Ratcliff Family and Cosmetic Dentistry (our dental practice) to visit with me and talk about it. I’m Dr. Stephen Ratcliff, and as a Fort Worth cosmetic Dentist, I am not only experienced with teeth whitening procedures, but care about your teeth and your smile. I can recommend teeth whitening procedures based on your age, dental hygiene, and personal goals.
