How Can I Straighten My Teeth?

Panama City Smiles offers several orthodontic options to straighten your teeth. Along with a variety of braces, we also offer ClearCorrect short-term orthodontics, which use a series of invisible aligners to straighten teeth in a shorter amount of time.

How Can I Close The Gaps Between My Teeth?

Depending on how much your teeth need to be adjusted, we offer several options. Traditional braces are a good solution for teeth that have severe gaps. ClearCorrect works great to minimize gaps between the teeth that show when you smile. For small gaps or alignment issues, dental veneers work beautifully to hide the gaps without using orthodontics.

What Is Considered A Dental Emergency?

A knocked-out tooth, or any injury to your teeth or soft tissues in your mouth, is a dental emergency. Tooth pain and abscesses can worsen quickly and spread, so they also require immediate care. If you lose a restoration like a filling or a dental crown, your tooth is vulnerable to infection and needs to be repaired right away.

We see emergencies immediately during business hours, and our phone is answered 24 hours a day. Come to Panama City Smiles, and we will take care of you right away!

How Can I Improve The Look Of My Dull Smile?

The easiest and most affordable way to brighten a dull smile is professional teeth whitening. We offer KӧR deep bleaching, which delivers stunning results – even for darkly stained teeth. To cover a tooth that is stained or otherwise unattractive, we can either place dental veneers on the front of teeth or cover them completely with porcelain dental crowns.

How Can I Fix My Chipped Tooth?

We can fix a chipped tooth with tooth bonding, using a composite resin material to repair the tooth and make it look better. We can also use a dental veneer to hide imperfections or chips. Depending on where the tooth is, a dental crown may be a better option to cover the tooth completely, making it stronger and more secure for chewing.

If you have any specific questions about dental care, Dr. Anish Patel, Dr. Trae Pappas, or Panama City Smiles, do not hesitate to contact us. You can use our online form or call us at 850-588-0185.

I have never really worried about my smile until I started taking pictures in my new role. There was a lot of awards that I would have to give out, and I would always catch myself not smiling. That's really when I noticed that I was subconsciously worried about my smile. It definitely boosts my ...
