If you’ve ever watched a movie or TV show, then you’ve definitely seen veneers. They are what give many actors their impossibly perfect smiles. This treatment involves placing extremely thin porcelain coverings over the front of the teeth to improve their shape, size, color, and spacing all at the same time. Now, you can get them right here in Naples, custom-made by Dr. Hoop so you can have your own red-carpet-ready smile.
Thanks to advancements in dental materials, crowns can now be made of 100% porcelain, which resembles real enamel down to the finest detail (like how the slightly translucent surface reflects light). In addition to using these restorations to repair damaged teeth, Dr. Hoop can also place these crowns to enhance the appearance of misshapen or undersized teeth, giving the smile a more uniform and attractive appearance.
With cosmetic bonding, Dr. Hoop can make a small chip, stain, or gap disappear in as little as an hour. He simply applies a color-matched composite resin to the flawed tooth, shapes it to cover the imperfection, and then hardens it with a curing light. The procedure is fast, painless, and the natural-looking results can be trusted to last for about 10 years. This is a much more affordable alternative to porcelain veneers and perfect for those who only want slight adjustments to their smile.
Everyone wants to have a pristine white smile, but maintaining one is quite difficult, and most whitening products on store shelves today are woefully underpowered. If your teeth are stained due to coffee, wine, aging, or genetics, Dr. Hoop can easily make them six to 10 shades brighter with our professional whitening treatments. Our in-office options are great for patients who want results as quickly as possible, but if you’re in less of a rush, he can give you a customized take-home kit so you can complete the process on your own schedule.
Many patients have what is commonly referred to as a “gummy” smile, in which the gum line overshadows the teeth and makes them appear short and stubby in comparison. Does this sound familiar? If so, Dr. Hoop can quickly and easily take care of this using our diode laser. He can painlessly remove unneeded gum tissue to make the teeth instantly appear longer and fuller. The entire process can be completed in one appointment, and thanks to the gentleness of the laser, most patients require practically no recovery time.
Eager to change something about your smile, but don’t know what? At a consultation with Dr. Hoop, he can discuss your smile goals with you and then put together a personalized plan designed to make them real. He can also use pictures of your teeth to digitally simulate what you’ll look like after undergoing various treatments so you can get a preview of the results and ensure the final product is exactly what you want.
