Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry can have a positive impact in rectifying crooked teeth, chipped, unevenly spaced, and discolored. It can change a person’s smile, enhance confidence, and improve one’s wellness and overall health.

With modern advances in dentistry, cosmetic procedures can range from basic color correction to replacing missing teeth and everything in between.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening involves bleaching teeth to make them lighter. It lightens the existing color by several shades. We provide laser whitening, also known as power whitening. This is where a bleaching product is painted onto the teeth and then a light or laser is shone on them to activate the whitening.

Fillings

Dentists no longer need to rely on unsightly metals to replace tooth structures lost to decay but use high density, state-of-the-art plastic (composite resins), and porcelain materials instead. These materials more naturally mimic the look, feel, and function of natural teeth and bond directly to the remaining enamel and dentin. This means that new fillings preserve more of the natural tooth so less repair work is necessary immediately and in the future. These modern filling materials are also more natural in appearance; it’s almost impossible to tell that your tooth has a filling.

Crowns

Crowns also known as caps, cover a tooth to restore it to its normal shape and appearance. Due to their cost, they are used in cases where other procedures will not be effective. Crowns have the longest life expectancy of all cosmetic restorations but are the most time-consuming.

Which procedure is right for me?

Doctors

Your dentist can answer any questions you may have about techniques used to improve your smile. The condition of your teeth and desired result you want often dictates the best procedure. If you are considering a treatment, there are a few questions you can ask your dentist before deciding if a particular procedure is right for you.

  • What will the changes look like?
  • What should I expect through the course of treatment?
  • What type of maintenance will be required?
  • What should I look for in a cosmetic dentist?

To make sure your dentist is skilled in cosmetic dentistry, you ask your dentist for the following items before undergoing treatment: Before and after photos. These photos will allow you to examine the results of other patients being treated by the dentist to make sure his or her work fits your dental needs.

A common procedure to whiten teeth is bleaching. A second one is bonding; done to correct chipped, cracked, and irregularly spaced teeth. A third procedure involves the use of laminate veneers, which are a longer-lasting solution that meets the same purpose as bonding. These processes give a completely new look to a person’s smile.
