At Blue Ridge Dental in Mount Airy, NC, Dr. Lynette Smith and Dr. Bennett Smith offer various cosmetic services to keep smiles beautiful. Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you, and we'd all like to present our best smile to the world. But most of us have little imperfections in our smiles and that can make us self-conscious about smiling. Read about the most commonly requested cosmetic services we offer and come see us in Mount Airy, NC, if you want to improve the aesthetics of your smile.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic service requested at our Mount Airy, NC, office. Many of our patients have tried at-home whitening kits, but these are easy to misuse and can damage your gums. A typical teeth whitening appointment takes about an hour and can brighten teeth several shades. Get a professional whitening treatment and give yourself a boost of confidence with a bright white smile!

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a composite resin material that can be sculpted directly onto your tooth. This allows your dentist to change the shape of the tooth in order to fix chips and other imperfections. Dental bonding is designed to blend in perfectly with your natural teeth but it is prone to staining, so be careful with staining beverages and take great care of your teeth by brushing for two minutes twice a day and flossing at least once a day.

Veneers

Veneers are a way to completely reshape and redesign your smile. Veneers are made from a thin ceramic or porcelain shell. Each individual veneer fits snugly over a tooth to change its appearance. You can have a whole new smile without undergoing a single procedure. Your dentist may file some teeth down to make room for the veneers, but there is no surgery involved. You can have a beautiful and symmetrical smile with veneers.

Dr. Lynette Smith and Dr. Bennett Smith help patients at Blue Ridge Dental get to the smile they've always wanted. With a variety of cosmetic dentistry services available, your dentist can tweak your smile or completely redesign it. Contact us for an appointment in Mount Airy, NC, at (336) 789-5306.
