Looking for a Cosmetic Dentist in Flowood MS?
Beautiful teeth can be right around the corner with cosmetic dentistry from Lakeland Family Dentistry. Dr. Henry and Dr. Greer are all cosmetic dentists in Flowood, MS, that can help you achieve your dream smile. At Lakeland Family Dentistry, we offer various cosmetic dentistry services, including dentures, teeth whitening, and dental crowns. 

Dentures in Flowood, MS

Dentures may help you achieve your dream smile if you are missing multiple teeth. There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. If you miss almost all teeth on the top or bottom set of teeth, you may be a good candidate for complete dentures. However, if you are only missing some teeth, you could qualify for partial dentures. Dentures are made of a soft resin gum appearing material with porcelain teeth attached to them. The teeth are designed to match the size and shape of your natural teeth.

We can place dentures in a few appointments. You will have a consultation appointment with your dentist during your first visit. In this visit, you will discuss your dental goals. Next, your dentist and his team of experts will take an impression of your teeth and gums. We send this impression to a lab where they will design your denture. Once it arrives, you will be invited back to the office for a fitting. You will leave the office that day with a beautiful new set of teeth. 

Teeth Whitening in Flowood, MS

Patients with tooth discoloration can benefit from professional teeth whitening from Lakeland Family Dentistry. We do not recommend that patients use over-the-counter products to whiten their teeth because they are not as accurate and can cause tooth sensitivity if not used correctly. At Lakeland Family Dentistry, our dentists produce accurate and consistent teeth whitening results. 

We offer two types of teeth whitening solutions in our office, at-home and in-office whitening. For at-home whitening, your dentist will take an impression of your teeth to have a custom-made whitening tray designed for you. This tray will ensure the professional strength whitening gel will reach all the crevices of your smile. With at-home whitening, your dentist will ask you to wear the whitening tray with the gel for a certain amount of time each day. The amount of time can range from 30 minutes to overnight. 

For in-office teeth whitening, your dentist will put a strong whitening gel on the outside of your teeth. Then, they will let the gel sit on your teeth for 15 – 30 minutes and then remove it. Your dentist may use a blue light over the teeth to speed up the process. Depending on how many shades you want to whiten your teeth, your dentist may repeat this process multiple times. The benefit of in-office teeth whitening is that you will leave the office with noticeably whiter teeth. 

Dental Crowns in Flowood, MS

You may have heard dental crowns restore dental concerns such as a broken tooth or tooth decay. Dental crowns can also be used in cosmetic dentistry to improve the appearance of your smile. If you have a tooth that is misshapen or has discoloration, you may benefit from a dental crown. 

To prepare for a dental crown placement, your dentist will take an impression of your tooth. We send this impression to a lab where the porcelain crown is made. Once it arrives in the office, we will invite you back to place the crown. Before your dentist places the crown, they will buff the tooth. Biffing means they will etch off part of the outer layer of the tooth {the enamel) so that the crown will adhere better to the tooth. Next, they will place a bonding material on the tooth and slip it on the crown. Once the procedure is over, you will leave the office with an enhanced smile. 

Cosmetic dentistry can improve the appearance of your smile and enhance your self-confidence. The dentists at Lakeland Family Dentistry offer several cosmetic dentistry procedures, from dentures to teeth whitening to dental crowns.
