Cosmetic Dentistry

A dazzling smile can light up a room and exude an image of confidence and high self-esteem. We create captivating smiles quickly and easily through the latest cosmetic dentistry techniques, including porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, implant dentistry, and tooth-colored fillings, at our Wilmington, Delaware, office.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers at our Wilmington, Delaware, practice allow us to craft beautiful smiles for our patients. Whether teeth are spaced or crowded, there is hope for a fantastic smile with porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin wafers that are bonded onto the front surface of teeth to hide imperfections. The porcelain veneers procedure requires several visits to our Wilmington, Delaware, practice. Initially, you and your dentist will discuss your diagnosis and devise a treatment plan that is best for you. Subsequently, your teeth will be prepared for the porcelain veneers by removing a small amount of the tooth’s enamel. A mold is taken of your teeth, and the impression is sent to the dental lab so they can fabricate your custom porcelain veneers. You will then come in to our Wilmington office for a final visit, at which time the porcelain veneers are bonded to your teeth. When your final appointment is complete, you will walk out of our office with a bright, natural smile that you will be proud to show off!

Porcelain veneers not only look 100 percent natural, they also last for years and require only minimal preparation of the tooth, unlike older techniques such as caps or crowns. Porcelain veneers are also highly resistant to stains, so you can continue to enjoy coffee, tea, and soda without fading your new smile.
The dream of having a smile free of gaps, cracks, discolorations, and other imperfections can become a reality with porcelain veneers.

Teeth Whitening, Tooth Bleaching

A whiter, brighter smile can take years off of your appearance and eliminate the fear of smiling for people who live with dark, stained, or yellowing teeth. We offer Zoom!™ teeth whitening at our Wilmington, Delaware, practice as a simple, safe, and cost-effective way to improve your smile.

Whether it’s smoking, coffee drinking, or just age that has caused your teeth to lose their youthful brightness, teeth whitening can almost always help. There’s an approach to suit almost anyone, whether you want the economy and flexibility of at-home tooth whitening or the quick flash of brightening that comes with the ZOOM! in-office teeth whitening technique at our Wilmington, Delaware, office.
Our Zoom!™ teeth whitening treatment can make your smile up to 10 shades brighter in one simple treatment. During the Zoom!™ in-office tooth whitening procedure, Zoom!™ whitening gel is applied carefully to your teeth, and activated by the special Zoom!™ lamp. The professional strength whitening gel and the Zoom! Light work together to gently penetrate your teeth, breaking up stains and discoloration. After three 20-minute applications, the teeth whitening gel is wiped away and a five-minute fluoride treatment is administered. When treatment is complete, you can look in the mirror and see your radiant new smile. Our in-office teeth whitening treatment takes only an hour or so, so it can easily fit into the busiest of schedules.

For patients who prefer to undergo teeth whitening in the privacy of their own homes, we offer a take-home tooth whitening treatment that consists of custom-made trays and professional whitening gel.

No matter what the ads say, there is NO over-the-counter tooth bleaching system that is as safe and effective as the teeth whitening methods that are custom tailored to your unique needs by your dentist. If you would like to schedule an appointment for Zoom!™ teeth whitening at our Wilmington, Delaware, office, contact New Concept Dental today.

Tooth-colored fillings, Metal Free Dentistry

The days when cavities could only be filled with unattractive amalgam fillings are over. We utilize the metal free dentistry technique of tooth-colored fillings at our Wilmington, Delaware, practice to provide a healthy, functional, and natural-looking smile.

There has been a lot written and said in the past few years about amalgam fillings (also called silver or mercury fillings). While we at New Concept Dental don’t believe amalgam is unSAFE, we do believe it’s unATTRACTIVE. Many people look in the mirror and wish they didn’t see those ugly, blackened, metal fillings in their back teeth. Even though they may be in the back, they still darken an otherwise nice smile. Now, with metal free dentistry, it is so simple to return your teeth to their natural appearance in just one visit to our Wilmington, Delaware, office.

In order to prepare for the tooth-colored fillings, the decayed portions of your teeth have to be removed. Because tooth-colored fillings are bonded directly to the teeth, they allow for more of the healthy tooth structure to stay intact. Once the tooth is prepared, the tooth-colored fillings are placed onto the teeth in layers and hardened with a special light. The tooth-colored fillings are then shaped to match the contours of your teeth and polished.

Besides the obvious aesthetic advantages offered by metal free dentistry, there are also several health benefits. Tooth-colored fillings will last for years and will actually strengthen teeth when used to replace corroded metal fillings. Because tooth-colored fillings bond to the tooth, they help prevent future breaks or fractures and also help avoid decay. If your tooth-colored fillings do become damaged or your tooth requires additional work, the fillings can be easily replaced, or repaired.
Metal free dentistry, including tooth-colored fillings, provides a healthy, functional smile without compromising aesthetics. If you want to learn more about tooth-colored fillings and metal free dentistry at our Wilmington, Delaware, practice, contact New Concept Dental today.
