RestorationDrs. Virtue and Mary Katherine Taylor understand that there are times in which patients are unable to control what happens to their smiles. Patients may have had trauma that resulted in the loss of natural teeth or may lose their teeth due to disease. There are also times in which patients may have stained or discolored teeth, which can be caused by genetics or even medications. Situations like these are what lead patients to Drs. Virtue and Mary Katherine Taylor, of Virtue Dental Care. They will find ways in which patients can restore their smiles back to their original beauty.
Restorative services are imperative for patients who want to improve their smiles after tooth loss or dental concerns have developed. Many patients benefit from seeing a general dentist or cosmetic dentist who is trained and experienced in providing esthetic restorations. Here are just a few of the restorations that are offered by Drs. Virtue and Mary Katherine Taylor, of Virtue Dental Care, in Yadkinville, North Carolina:
Porcelain VeneersVeneers are a versatile restoration often used in both cosmetic and general dentistry to cover teeth with imperfections. Teeth that are chipped, cracked, or broken can be disguised with a porcelain veneer, as well as teeth that are misaligned or discolored.
DenturesWhen an entire arch of teeth is missing, patients can benefit from cosmetic dentures. Additionally, patients who are missing teeth can use partial dentures to restore their smiles.
Dental CrownsCrowns are made of porcelain and are bonded over the patient’s tooth to protect and change the appearance of a natural tooth. They can be used for teeth that are broken, teeth with large fillings, or teeth near the back of the mouth that are extremely stained or discolored.
Teeth WhiteningAging, medication, and the foods and drinks patients enjoy can drastically dull and discolor a smile. Thankfully, most patients can benefit from teeth whitening treatments, which can lighten the enamel of the teeth, safely and effectively.
