Minor physical and cosmetic imperfections on the teeth in your smile can certainly be unnerving and can impact your self-confidence. Rather than live with these unsightly characteristics, many people in the St. Petersburg, Florida, area will reach out to Dr. Roberto Macedo to explore their options for improving their smile’s appearance.

This typically starts with a consultation appointment where Dr. Roberto Macedo will examine your teeth and present you with cosmetic dental options. The specific imperfections that need to be addressed, the severity of the imperfections, and your personal preference will determine which option is best.

If your teeth are healthy and free of physical imperfections, Dr. Roberto Macedo might suggest a dental bleaching treatment. This will remove any traces of dental stains from the teeth in your smile. Then he will help you identify foods and lifestyle choices to limit stains in the future to ensure your smile remains bright white.

If you have multiple teeth suffering from minor physical imperfections, such as mismatched fillings and minor chips, Dr. Roberto Macedo might recommend dental veneers. The dental-grade porcelain used in the veneers can be shaded to appear just like brilliant, white, natural tooth enamel, only it will do a much better job at resisting future dental stains.

Should one of your teeth suffer from a cavity or a large chip, Dr. Roberto Macedo might suggest restoring that tooth with a porcelain dental crown. This essentially replicates the tooth enamel layer with a special dental-grade porcelain material that can be shaded to match the surrounding teeth.

If you live in the St. Petersburg, Florida, area and your smile is suffering from visual imperfections, you should call 727-202-4459 to explore the cosmetic dental options offered at RM Advanced Center for Cosmetic Dentistry.
