Experienced Dentist in Encinitas Has Been Improving Smiles Since 1990
We all want to face each day with a smile but when you have a dental imperfection such as a chipped tooth, a gap in your teeth, or stained teeth, smiling widely can be challenging, even embarrassing. Or, maybe you’re just looking to improve your smile and boost your confidence. If that is the case, then our dentist in Encinitas, Dr. Gregory McElroy, has decades of experience in cosmetic dentistry and can help with any dental imperfection, no matter how minor or extensive.
Dr. McElroy and McElroy Smiles by Design offer many cosmetic solutions that can help put a smile back on your face. Below are just a few.
If your teeth are stained from wine, smoking, dark sodas, coffee, tea, acidic foods or beverages, McElroy Smiles By Design offers a teeth whitening solution to help restore and improve the brightness of your smile. You will see better results when you receive dentist-supervised whitening treatment as teeth whitening products from the store are weaker and lower quality than what you are able to get from your dentist. In-office treatment also lowers the risks of adverse effects such as irritated gums or permanently sensitive teeth.
Veneers may be the right solution if you want your chipped, broken, or discolored teeth repaired. Veneers are thin, tooth-colored porcelain shells that are bonded to the front of the teeth. They are designed to improve the appearance of the size, color, or shape of your teeth, and the porcelain is matched to the natural color of your teeth to ensure the most natural look possible. You can have veneers put on all of your teeth to revitalize your smile or just repair one tooth that you’re unhappy with.
When a tooth can’t be salvaged with a filling or crown, but it is still necessary to have a fully functioning tooth, a dental bridge may be the answer. A bridge also prevents your remaining teeth from moving out of position and, If you have a missing tooth or need to have a tooth pulled, Dr. McElroy can replace the gap with a dental bridge. A bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth and “bridges” the gap where one or more teeth used to be. Bridges can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials to match your other teeth.
Teeth-In-A-Day Dental Implants
Instead of replacing each missing tooth with a dental implant, our Teeth-In-A-Day procedure uses just a few strategically placed implants to permanently secure your new artificial teeth in place. Dr. McElroy places four titanium implants into your jaw. Your bone then envelops these implants and secures them into place just as if they were natural teeth roots. Your full set of new artificial teeth are then held in place by these implants.
