Your smile’s appearance can have a bearing on your self-confidence in many of life’s social arenas. Stained teeth, noticeable old dental fillings, discolored tooth enamel, and physical defects on your teeth can cause you to guard some of your important facial expressions.

In a situation like this, you might want to schedule a consultation appointment at Black Lake Dental to explore the cosmetic dentistry treatments offered by Dr. Eric Thiede. The specific imperfections you need addressing will help determine the methods he recommends.

If you are struggling with a case of chronic dental staining, Dr. Eric Thiede can administer a dental bleaching treatment. This single outpatient treatment can safely remove unsightly shades from deep within your tooth enamel. Then Dr. Eric Thiede can then help you understand simple things you can do to maintain your smile’s appearance.

This might include making alternative food, and beverage choices, drinking dark beverages through a straw or abstaining from tobacco use. You might also find it helpful to occasionally brush your teeth with a whitening toothpaste that has been approved by the American Dental Association.

Porcelain dental veneers are also a highly-effective way to improve the appearance of teeth suffering from multiple cosmetic imperfections. Each one will be created in a dental lab to fit over the face of the teeth in your smile. Once they are cemented in place the dental veneers will provide you with a bright smile that is easy to maintain.

If one of your teeth has an existing dental filling or insufficient tooth enamel to secure a dental veneer, Dr. Eric Thiede might recommend a porcelain crown restoration. This will completely replace the entire tooth enamel layer with durable, dental-grade porcelain.

If you live in the Olympia, Washington, area and you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, you should call 360-915-7353 to schedule a consultation at Black Lake Dental.
