Do your gums bleed when you brush or floss your teeth? Do they appear puffy and red, or are they white and receding? These are the visible signs of gingivitis (early-stage gum disease). In its early phase, gum disease can usually be treated with a visit to Robert A. Lowe, DDS in Charlotte, more consistent brushing and flossing, and regular mouth rinses. If gingivitis goes untreated, however, it can develop into full-blown periodontal disease (or periodontitis). At this point, the gums will not only recede away from the teeth, but they will shrink and open up pockets of air under the gum line. These pockets become hotbeds for bacteria to grow and thrive. Without gum disease treatment, your teeth will become loose in their sockets, and tooth loss will be imminent.

Porcelain Veneers

In addition to addressing chipped teeth and cracked teeth, the team at our Charlotte practice can also use porcelain veneers to deal with major stains that teeth whitening cannot effectively treat and minor misalignments or unevenness off the teeth.

Whether you choose in-office or at-home treatments, we will create custom dental trays to fit your teeth and prevent any whitening gel from coming into contact with your gums. In just a single visit with us, you can see an improvement of up to 10 shades. With further whitening appointments or at-home whitening using professional-grade whitening gel and your custom trays, we can help you achieve the brightest white smile you’ve had in your entire life.
