Go Back In Time

cosmetic dental and implants Tampa

So you’ve lost some teeth and now are unwilling to smile because of the gaps. If only you could go back in time and reclaim that full-toothed smile you once had. Guess what? You can with dental implants from  Five Star Dental Care, serving the Brandon, FL area including Tampa, Valrico, Plant City, Seffner, Lithia, and Riverview FL.

For most patients, a tooth implant is the perfect replacement for both the root and crown of a tooth. They feel so real that implant recipients forget that they ever lost a tooth in the first place.

A tooth implant is anchored into the jawbone with a strong metal post. It doesn’t move around like dentures, and unlike a dental bridge, it guards healthy jawbone and prevents bone recession. After the post is completely enmeshed with the jawbone, the supporting device (called an abutment) and beautiful crown are firmly attached to the post. Some patients are able to undergo all three parts of the procedure at once.

Our team offers a variety of options when it comes to replacing missing or broken teeth. None are as effective and durable as dental implants. If you’ve lost several teeth, you may be a good candidate for implant-anchored dentures. Talk to us to learn more.

Another way to go back in time is to whiten your teeth to the bright color they were when you were a teenager. There are several different types of tooth whitening systems, from same-day procedures to at-home treatments. Again, speak with our team about your goals and budget.

Have you ever wished your smile looked like it did before you had any tooth decay? (Many of us can’t remember that far back!) Talk to us about tooth-colored fillings. White fillings match your teeth, and dramatically improve your smile without crowns.

Located in Valrico near Riverview and Brandon FL, Five Star Dental Care offers a wide variety of cosmetic and restorative dental care, including dental implants and sedation dentistry.  Talk to us about your goals for your smile. We look forward to designing a custom treatment plan to transform your smile. Call today!

The advantages to prepless veneers include that they are:

  • bonded for stability
  • durable
  • matched to be the right shade and color of your original teeth

They can brighten your smile a few shades if you cover all the teeth you can see in your smile and they don’t damage the existing teeth.

Handle With Care
While waiting for the crown to be re-cemented, abstain from eating food that is chewy, sticky, or crunchy.

Valrico Wants Beautiful Movie-Star Smiles

Tampa Wants Silver Screen Smiles

With the constant media coverage of celebrities, many Valrico dental patients are interested in having a smile like the stars. With Dr. Jeff Bynum at Five Star Dental in Brandon, anyone can have a beautiful smile they want to show off.

Many smile makeovers include teeth whitening. There are a variety of ways this can be done. Most Brandon FL drugstores sell over-the-counter whitening strips and gels. Five Star Dental can recommend a safe one, but for better results call us for in-office bleaching. This is a quick way to see whiter teeth in less than an hour.

For missing teeth, a dental implant is often the procedure done. Because a dental implant is anchored into the jawbone, it looks and feels just like a natural tooth. A dental implant prevents jawbone recession and the shifting of adjacent teeth, and improves your smile.

Veneers are especially popular. They cover the front of the teeth and are custom-made for each individual patient. These are useful for Valrico patients who have broken or chipped teeth, stained teeth, or gaps between teeth that they would like to hide.

Located in Valrico near Riverview and Brandon FL, Five Star Dental Care offers a wide variety of cosmetic and restorative dental care. If you’re looking for a perfect smile, we have the right procedure for you.

Get ready to smile like a star, and call for an appointment today.

3 Smart Smile Solutions

smile makeovers Valrico

At Five Star Dental Care we want our patients to have the best oral health possible. We also want you to have a beautiful smile. That’s why we offer a wide array of cosmetic dentistry services.

Tooth Implants
For most patients, a dental implant is the ideal solution for a missing tooth. A dental implant is a metal (usually titanium) rod implanted into the bone to replace the missing root of a tooth that has been extracted. The crown and supporting structure are securely attached to the post.

When the final crown is affixed, the dental implant is indistinguishable from a natural tooth. Dental implants have many  advantages over dental bridges or dentures.

Invisible Braces
Invisible braces allow you to straighten your teeth discreetly because it is nearly impossible to see them while they are being worn. There are a couple of different types of invisible braces including Damon Braces and Invisalign clear aligners.

White Fillings
If you had tooth decay in the past, you may have old amalgam fillings. White fillings match your surrounding teeth, significantly upgrading your smile without crowns.

Five Star Dental Care – Jeff Bynum, DDS has been providing first rate dental care since 1996. We look forward to meeting you. Call us today at 813-653-2273.

Dental Implants And Smile Makeovers

smile makeovers Valrico

Beauty, it has been said, is in the eye of the beholder. At Five Star Dental in Valrico, we use cosmetic dentistry to create beautiful smiles every single day.

But if beauty is in the eye of the beholder, what makes a beautiful smile?

White teeth? Uniformly-shaped teeth? Straight teeth?

Crooked teeth are usually considered unattractive. Yellow or gray teeth reduce the appeal of a smile—even one that is perfectly healthy and aligned.

Most people agree that missing teeth detract from a smile. When smiling, talking, laughing, or eating, the gap from a missing tooth is on display. Even if the existing teeth are white, straight, and pleasingly shaped, the eyes fixate on the gap that should hold a tooth.

The good news is that all of these issues – dull or crooked teeth, and even missing teeth – can be addressed by modern cosmetic dentistry.

Professional teeth whitening surpasses any whitening product you’ll find at the store. We offer in-office whitening that can brighten your smile in as little as one hour. We’ve also got take-home kits that deliver spectacular results, done at your convenience.

Crooked teeth can be straightened with clear braces from Invisalign. They are so subtle that people just a few feet away might not realize you’re wearing them. Even better, they can be removed at mealtime and when you brush your teeth.

And if you’re missing a tooth, you can restore it with a dental implant. Dental implants consist of a titanium post inserted into the jaw, where it fuses with the bone. This provides solid support for an artificial tooth that looks and functions like a natural tooth.

To find how these procedures can deliver a beautiful smile, call us at Five Star Dental in Valrico.
