Your smile is an integral part in many facial expressions. When your teeth suffer from cosmetic imperfections like chronic dental stains or physical imperfections like mismatched dental fillings or dental fractures, it can hamper your self-confidence.

In a situation like this, a consultation appointment with Dr. Larry Hoffman, Steven Flicker, & David Sher can help you understand the best method for restoring your smile’s cosmetic appeal. The specific nature and severity of the cosmetic imperfections will influence the treatment he recommends.

Problems with chronic dental stains or discolored tooth enamel might call for professional whitening with a dental bleaching treatment. After your white smile has been restored Dr. Larry Hoffman, Steven Flicker, & David Sher can help you understand your options for maintaining the appearance of your teeth.

This might include changes in your food and beverage choices or occasionally brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste that has earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance.

To address a small afflicted with minor physical imperfections, Dr. Larry Hoffman, Steven Flicker, & David Sher might recommend dental veneers. These are thin shells, made from dental porcelain that is cemented onto the face of each tooth in your smile. This can help disguise minor chips and mismatched fillings while also providing you a white smile that is easy to maintain.

If one of your teeth has been compromised by an old dental filling, shallow tooth enamel, or a newly developed cavity, Dr. Larry Hoffman, Steven Flicker, & David Sher might recommend a porcelain dental crown. This restoration will replace the entire tooth enamel layer in the same dental-grade porcelain material matched to the dental veneers.
