Without a doubt, our smile is important. It’s what we notice when we look in the mirror and it’s the first thing people see when they look at us. However, if we don’t like what we see when we look in the mirror, we can often become quite critical of our teeth and think that the flaws can’t be fixed without invasive, expensive, or multiple treatments.
While sometimes a full smile makeover is necessary, often one or two treatments can make a difference. Dr. Don Mungcal of Downtown Dental has been helping patients achieve their best smile using the least invasive and most impactful cosmetic dental treatments.
Teeth whitening is one of the most requested cosmetic dental treatments with good reason. Teeth whitening is fast, effective, and it is a great way to remove years of stains and discoloration, leaving you with a brighter and happier smile. At Downtown Dental, you can choose from several teeth whitening options. For those patients who want a whiter smile immediately, Dr. Mungcal offers in-office Zoom and KöR whitening treatments. Zoom is a one-hour office session in which professional whitening gel is applied to the teeth and it is activated using a special light. Patients can achieve results that are six shades lighter than when they started. KöR is a popular in-office treatment for patients who have deep or set in shades. For patients who wish to whiten their teeth gradually, in the comfort of their own home, Dr. Mungcal offers at-home whitening trays. Regardless of which option you choose, brighter, whiter teeth can be a great improvement in your smile.
Another non-invasive dental treatment that can have great cosmetic results is dental veneers. This treatment uses very thin strips of porcelain on natural teeth. This can help patients address one or several cosmetic flaws with one simple procedure. To apply veneers, Dr. Mungcal must first remove a small amount of the enamel. This makes room for the veneers to be applied and ensures that they look natural. On certain cases, removal of enamel is not necessary. Next, the veneers are created. Each set of veneers is developed uniquely for the individual patient, giving you a smile that is truly your own. Once the veneers are ready, they will be cemented to the teeth. They are strong, secure, and functional the same as before the treatment.
