Bedford Cosmetic Dentistry
Contrary to popular belief, a healthy smile isn’t always a beautiful smile. Even thriving teeth fall victim to aesthetic flaws that accumulate over time, such as chips, stains, gaps, and much more. In these cases, we welcome you to turn to our team at PeaksView Dental for personalized attention and comprehensive care that can restore your teeth to better, brighter levels. Patients from Bedford County and surrounding areas of Forest, Smith Mountain Lake, Goode, Moneta, and Thaxton are welcome to contact us today and schedule a cosmetic consultation! Dr. Walerko, Dr. Owen, and Dr. Wolf look forward to meeting you.
Made from quality composite resin, tooth-colored fillings are a significant step forward when compared to the noticeably unnatural appearance of traditional amalgams. Our team can provide the ideal shade that blends in seamlessly with your natural smile, repairing the area of decay and providing needed strength. Additional benefits of tooth-colored fillings from our Bedford practice include:
- Composite resin is more conservative, which allows our team to successfully treat smaller areas and preserve more of your natural tooth structure overall. In fact, we correct minor fractures that don’t contain decay!
- Amalgam materials tend to expand and contract when exposed to changes in temperature, which can damage the tooth and cause discomfort for the patient. Tooth-colored fillings don’t experience this concern.
- With the right homecare and professional maintenance, tooth-colored fillings last for 15 years or more.
Our team is always happy to provide patients with restorative options that both revitalize oral health and provide valuable cosmetic improvement. Instead of the traditional gold and silver restorations, we use all-ceramic materials that closely resemble natural tooth enamel to create custom crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, and more – in fact, they even reflect light in the same way! With our state-of-the-art E4D technology, our doctors even complete the process in just one appointment, allowing you to get back to your busy life faster than ever with a significantly improved smile.
There are several reasons why teeth become stained and/or discolored over time, including:
- A diet that contains certain foods and drinks, like coffee or wine
- Poor oral hygiene
- The use of certain medications
- Old age
If you’re struggling with a smile that appears lackluster, turn to our staff of accomplished dentists here in Bedford, VA. We offer both in-office teeth whitening for busy patients in need of fast results and take-home kits for those who would prefer to undergo treatment on their own schedule.
At PeaksView Dental, we want to help you achieve the results you’re looking for in a comfortable and convenient fashion. If you’re struggling with several cosmetic dental flaws at once, our team may recommend porcelain veneers as the ideal treatment option. Veneers are thin restorations designed to fit over the front of certain teeth hiding them behind a gorgeous, blemish-free appearance that appears natural. We often use veneers to correct orthodontic concerns at a faster rate, or even to alter the shape or length of certain teeth based on the patient’s personal preference. Our goal is to exceed your expectations!
