4 Smile Boosters

Plant City cosmetic dental and tooth implants

Hi, my name is Dr. Jeff Bynum. My dental practice, Five Star Dental Care – Jeff Bynum, DDS, has been serving the Valrico, Florida area since 1996. Today in my Tampa dental blog, I would like to highlight four ways you can improve your smile.

1. Teeth Whitening is quick and non-invasive. External tooth whitening occurs when teeth whitening agents bleach the teeth directly. This can be done in your home or in the office of your dentist.

2. Dental Implants are another common procedure that many Valrico residents seek. A dental implant is secured into the jawbone to replace the roots of a lost tooth. A dental crown is then attached to the implant to replace the missing tooth. Along with improving the appearance and restoring tooth function, the dental implant does double-duty by helping to maintain bone support.

3. Dental Bonding can be done with various materials such as porcelain and composite resins. With recent advances in cosmetic dental services, these materials can more precisely replicate natural tooth structure and natural appearance. This procedure is commonly used to correct chipped or cracked teeth.

4. Periodontal Plastic Surgery is an extraordinary solution for gum recession and cosmetic irregularities. You can remove a “gummy smile” or remedy an uneven gum line.

I hope this post has helped you to get better acquainted with some highly effective cosmetic dentistry treatments. A combination of procedures can be used to give Valrico dental patients a complete smile redesign.

Let’s Work Together To Keep Your Smile Healthy And Beautiful

low cost tooth bleaching Tampa

Here at Five Star Dental Care – Jeff Bynum, DDS we approach all your oral health needs from two separate angles—what we can do in our dental practice and what you can do at home.

For example, tooth whitening and correcting discoloration can be treated in our office or at home. Here in the office, there are safe and effective methods for bleaching yellowed or stained tooth enamel. At-home whitening methods are also safe and effective and sometimes less expensive.

Additionally, we guide you regarding food and drink choices that can impact your whitened smile. Be aware of staining agents such as coffee, tea, tobacco, and soda. We understand that abstaining from these items altogether is not an easy lifestyle change. Nor do we expect it.

Awareness and precaution can make a big difference. Rinsing your mouth out with water after drinking a dark or sugary beverage can cut down on the contact your teeth have with it and help neutralize the acids. Prolonged exposure to sugar can lead to a buildup of plaque and tartar and prolonged exposure to staining substances can negate the results of teeth whitening.

If you are interested in making improvements to your smile and creating a more confident appearance for your professional career or personal relationships, please pick up the phone and contact the incredible staff at Five Star Dental Care – Jeff Bynum, DDS today 813-653-2273. Dr. Jeff Bynum, DDS, takes pride in providing knowledgeable care and expertise when treating patients.

Come discover the personal attention with dental crowns, the patient and steady hand with teeth whitening, the wise and thorough instruction relating to Invisalign. Once you’ve scheduled a consultation, expect expert guidance that will make your daily oral care and lifestyle choices productive and meaningful.

When it comes to hygiene and healthy teeth we are a practice that wants to see you as little as possible. (It’s not that we don’t love you—we just want you to have a healthy smile!) If we only see you twice a year for regular checkups then we’ve done our job. Check out our website at http://www.fivestardentalcare.com/ or come in for an evaluation and recommendations.

Dr. Bynum provides the full spectrum of dental services from cosmetic dentistry to restorative dentistry to dental implants.

Bridging The Gap

cosmetic dental Valrico

Hello, Valrico smiles! Do you have a missing tooth that is detracting from your otherwise attractive teeth? Let Five Star Dental Care – Jeff Bynum, DDS fill the gap for you and help you get your stunning smile back! A dental bridge could be the perfect solution for your missing tooth and help you chew and speak properly.

A bridge consists of two or more crowns on either side of the gap created by your missing tooth. These two anchoring teeth allow a false tooth to be held in the place where the missing tooth should be. The false tooth that is placed in the gap is called a pontic. Bridges can contain one or more pontics. A pontic can be matched to the surrounding teeth if you decide on a porcelain material. If you’d like, a pontic can also be constructed using gold or an alloy.

Dr. Bynum will work closely with you to make certain that your bridge has a precise fit. Then one of our experienced hygienists will show you how to clean under and around the bridge to ensure that no cavities develop in the nooks and crannies.

Dr. Bynum has been successfully restoring smiles since 1996. Thousands of patients have trusted Five Star Dental Care – Jeff Bynum, DDS with their dental health.

Come see us at Five Star Dental Care – Jeff Bynum, DDS and you can bridge the gap and love your smile again!

Children’s Dental Restorations

There is more than one way to fix a child’s tooth. Whether it’s decay or a crack, we have a restoration option.

Today’s post looks at three pediatric tooth restoration procedures we provide to repair a damaged tooth:

1. Dental Bonding

Bonding, officially called direct composite veneers, is used to repair chips, cracks, stains, and make teeth longer. It is also sometimes used to fill cavities. Your dentist applies a pliable composite resin and molds it to the specific shape required. The resin is then hardened with a special curing light.

2. A Filling (Inlay or Onlay)

A traditional filling is shaped and molded after it is applied to the tooth. Because inlays and onlays are created in a dental lab, they are usually called indirect fillings. Inlays are applied to just the center of the biting surface of a tooth (not to a cusp or point) and are frequently smaller than onlays. An onlay restores one or more cusps of a tooth.

3. A Dental Crown

A dental crown replaces the entire visible portion of the tooth, restoring appearance, strength, and function. Crowns are used for teeth that have had a root canal, teeth with severe decay, or the replacement tooth in a dental bridge. Crowns can be made of all metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, all-ceramic, or all resin.

It’s critical to restore both primary and permanent teeth. If your child has a cavity or damaged tooth, don’t delay treatment.

For more information about any of these restoration procedures, call Five Star Dental Care – Jeff Bynum, DDS at 813-653-2273.

2. Bonding is a popular treatment that uses a dental composite that resembles enamel. This material is applied to the surface of the teeth, sculpted into the desired shape, and then hardened and polished.

3. Tooth reshaping is a simple way to improve the appearance of your smile. It involves removing part of the enamel and can be used to fix small chips or to change the length or position of teeth.

4. Veneers are custom-made porcelain coverings that are very thin. They are bonded to the teeth and can be used to close gaps or cover discolored teeth.

5. For most patients, dental implants are the best way to replace a missing tooth.

6. And finally, there is the smile redesign. A smile makeover uses a combination of treatments to get dental patients the smiles they want.

Interested in a Dental Crown or Porcelain Veneer in Valrico?

cosmetic dentistry Valrico Porcelain Veneer in Valrico

Five Star Dental Care – Jeff Bynum, DDS offers multiple cosmetic dental procedures for creating remarkable smiles. Two of the most popular procedures are dental crowns and porcelain veneers in Valrico. Many patients don’t understand the difference between the two. Generally, a crown strengthens a compromised tooth while a veneer is used mainly for cosmetic improvements.

A dental crown covers the entire visible part of the tooth. A porcelain veneer in Valrico is an ultra-thin layer for the front of a tooth. A porcelain veneer in Valrico is fabricated with layers of durable ceramic laminate. Crowns can be made of all porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or gold. Both crowns and veneers are affixed to the tooth with a special adhesive. Crowns and veneers are durable and can last many years if properly cared for, though they are not stronger than natural enamel.

Both of these procedures improve the tooth aesthetically, but dental crowns are generally a better solution for a tooth that has been compromised by decay, damage, or a root canal. Veneers can correct the shape of a tooth, repair a minor crack, cover stains, or straighten the appearance of teeth that are slightly misaligned.

The success of a crown or veneer procedure depends on experienced professionals at the lab and in the dentist’s office. Your cosmetic dentist must prep the tooth, create a precision mold, and submit an accurate order to the lab. The role of the dental lab technician is equally vital.  Highly skilled lab technicians fabricate custom dental crowns and veneers to the specifications of the cosmetic dentist. They must have the expertise to meet the precise standards required for successful restorations.

A porcelain veneer in Valrico has everything a patient could want. The precise shape, the specific size, the precise color, and the proper placement in the mouth. This is a case of all or nothing—each dimension mush be exactly right or we will need to re-do it.

The team at Five Star Dental Care – Jeff Bynum, DDS and the wonderful staff at our dental lab work together to provide the highest quality dental restorations for our valued patients. If you would like more helpful details about crowns, veneers, and other cosmetic dental procedures, we invite you to reach out to us to schedule a cosmetic dental consultation. We can help you achieve a smile that is both healthy and remarkable. Call 813-653-2273 today!
