Cosmetic Dentistry Can Improve Your Smile in Multiple Ways

Posted November 11, 2016.


Many people feel that a white and winning smile is the key to making a good first impression. A smile that has been marred by one or more cosmetic imperfections can have a serious impact on your self-esteem and quality of life. Fortunately, your dentist, Dr. Robert Walinchus, is well-versed and experienced in a wide range of cosmetic dentistry treatments that are needed to improve your smile.

If your teeth suffer from staining problems, Dr. Robert Walinchus can perform a teeth-bleaching treatment. Once your teeth have been whitened, he can help you identify the initial cause of the stains and give you tips for making alternative choices. You can then maintain your white smile by using whitening toothpaste or whitening strips between dental appointments.

Dental veneers are another cosmetic treatment that can be used to remedy teeth with chips and deep staining issues. The porcelain veneers are custom crafted in a dental lab out of a porcelain material that will fit over the faces of the teeth in your smile. Once they are installed, they will look exactly like natural tooth enamel.

As an added bonus, the porcelain material the veneers are made from will not be as receptive to stains as natural tooth enamel. This will help make it easier for you to maintain your white smile for a long time to come.

If it is only a matter of one or two teeth being marred by chips or visible old fillings, Dr. Robert Walinchus might recommend restoring the tooth with a porcelain dental crown.

If your smile is suffering from one or more cosmetic imperfections, you should call Robert E. Walinchus, DMD at 610-543-5673 to explore your cosmetic dentistry options in Springfield, Pennsylvania.
