Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry
Question: What treatment is available for a cavity?
Answer: To repair a tooth afflicted with tooth decay, your Burlington MA dentist may recommend a filling. Our fillings are made using a composite resin, for a natural looking restoration.
Question: What are porcelain veneers?
Answer: Veneers are composed of thin shells of dental porcelain. This material is durable and mimics the appearance of natural tooth enamel. Veneers are placed over the front of a tooth, masking permanent stains, repairing damage, and correcting minor misalignment.
Question: Does my Burlington MA dentist offer teeth whitening?
Answer: Yes. Dr. Wong offers an at-home whitening technique that employs a set of custom-made whitening trays. The patient wears the gel-filled trays either overnight or twice a day for 30-minutes. In about two weeks, you can potentially obtain a significantly whiter smile.
Question: When does a patient need a porcelain crown?
Answer: A crown is a cap that fits over the visible portion of the tooth, preserving the remaining tooth structure and prevent further damage or decay. Our crowns are made using porcelain for a natural-looking restoration. Crowns repair chipped or cracked teeth and restore teeth with cavities. Cavities also strengthen teeth following root canal procedures. Finally, a tooth helps replace a missing tooth by anchoring dental bridges into place or topping single tooth dental implants.
