Men and women often perceive a sparkling, beautiful smile as a healthy one. Those who have straighter, whiter teeth are often more confident and have higher self-esteem than those who have unhealthy teeth and gums or those struggling with imperfections such as breakage, yellowing, and misalignment. Dr. Steven Hatcher, of Triad Dentistry in Greensboro, NC, is a dentist who focuses on ensuring his patients’ smiles are both healthy and attractive. He offers a wide selection of cosmetic and general dentistry services, including:
One of the quickest paths to a dazzling smile is with cosmetic teeth whitening. While over-the-counter products have been used by patients in the past, many of these fail to give the expected results and can take several weeks for any noticeable changes. Instead, patients can visit Triad Dentistry for Zoom! power bleaching.
Made of porcelain, veneers are used to cover teeth that have imperfections such as chips, cracks, discoloration, misalignment, or even an unusual natural shape. Veneers are fast, affordable, and can greatly improve the smile in as little as two dental appointments.
Implants are used for replacing missing teeth and can be utilized in conjunction with bridges and dentures. Patients who have lost one or more teeth may speak to Dr. Steven Hatcher about the many methods of restoring their smiles and the advantages dental implants have over the alternative solutions.
Crowns and bridges are porcelain restorations that provide coverage, protection, and aesthetics. Crowns, also known as caps, are made to cover a tooth or restore dental implants, while bridges are made to restore an area where teeth are missing. These are both made in-office with CEREC technology, providing patients with same-day restorations at Triad Dentistry.
Root canal therapy may be completed for patients who are experiencing pain and discomfort caused by extensive tooth decay, abscesses, trauma, or infection of a natural tooth.
Gum disease is a severe condition that occurs over time, most often caused by poor oral health. In its earliest stages, when it is known as gingivitis, gum disease is easily reversed. Usually, all that is needed is to look at your oral hygiene habits and make improvements. As gum disease progresses and becomes periodontitis, we will look at controlling and treating both the gum disease and the damage it has caused to your teeth and soft tissues. At Triad Dentistry, we examine each of our patients for gum disease to diagnose and provide appropriate treatment for a successful intervention.
