AKRON, Ohio, Sept. 2, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Peak Dental Arts announced that the Akron and Uniontown dentistry practice is offering cosmetic dental care services to improve patients' smiles. According to dentist Dr. Craig C. Lanik, in-office services, such as teeth whitening, can deliver superior results to over-the-counter treatments. Professional teeth whitening is stronger than at-home bleaching kits, delivering a brighter smile by removing wine, coffee and tobacco stains. In addition to professional teeth whitening, Dr. Lanik also provides tooth-colored filings, veneers, implants, crowns and caps, and dental bridges.
Akron and Uniontown dental patients can receive their routine dental cleaning while also getting their teeth whitened or capped. In addition to general family dentistry, dentist Craig C. Lanik offers comprehensive cosmetic dentistry services at his practice, Peak Dental Arts.
"Over time, it's natural for our teeth to become stained or dull," said Dr. Lanik. "A chipped, cracked or stained tooth can cause individuals to feel self-conscious about their appearance and smile. Cosmetic dentistry can help boost patients' confidence by restoring their smile."
The practice offers crowns and caps, veneers, dental bridges, and implants. One of the practice's most popular offerings is professional teeth whitening. According to Dr. Lanik, in-office whitening can deliver superior results to at-home whitening kits. The dentist says that in-office treatments are also safer, protecting against over bleaching that can cause gum irritation and tooth sensitivity.
"Whitening stained or yellowed teeth is one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments," said Dr. Lanik. "However, patients should be aware that over-the-counter kits are very different from in-office treatments. At-home kits are not fitted to a patient's mouth, which can cause uneven bleaching or increased gum sensitivity."
Dr. Lanik recommends that patients consult their dentist first before trying an over-the-counter whitening kit. His practice can also create custom-fit trays that patients can use for at-home whitening. Custom sizing ensures that the tray fully covers the teeth without irritating the gums or unevenly bleaching the teeth.
As an alternative to teeth bleaching, Dr. Lanik's practice also offers veneers, crowns and caps. A veneer covers the outside of teeth, providing a whiter smile while also hiding cracks, chips or other imperfections.
"If patients have discolored and chipped teeth, a full set of veneers can hide these imperfections and create a brand-new smile," said Dr. Lanik. "Missing teeth can also be replaced with dental implants, which can be matched in color to the rest of the patient's teeth."
Peak Dental Arts uses Cerec technology to create metal-free dental restorations that look and feel like natural teeth. Cerec restorations can be created and fit in just one visit, eliminating the need for multiple appointments and fittings.
Dr. Lanik encourages all patients to practice good brushing and flossing habits. The practice recommends routine dental check-ups to keep smiles bright and healthy.
