Can Cosmetic Dentistry Help My Smile?
One of the most exciting things about cosmetic dentistry is that there are long-lasting, affordable solutions! Whether your teeth are chipped, discolored, or misaligned, there’s a cosmetic option that’s sure to help.
Our cosmetic dental services include:
Cosmetic dentistry isn’t only about the look of your smile. Many cosmetic treatments also serve an important health function, such as composite fillings and porcelain crowns. These options boost your dental health while preserving your smile’s natural aesthetic.
How Dental Health Affects Your Smile’s Aesthetic
One of the key factors for how good your smile looks is how healthy it appears. Naturally, the healthier the smile, the better it tends to look.
If you have health issues in your smile, such as tooth decay or gum disease, your cosmetic treatment would be far less effective. Not only would cosmetics only mask the symptoms of poor health, but if your health continues to worsen, the cosmetic treatment won’t last as long, resulting in the need for more treatment.
We strongly recommend treating any oral health concerns before you seek cosmetic enhancements. With a strong oral health foundation, your cosmetic dental care becomes more efficient and effective, improving your results and your smile!
It’s normal for your smile to lose its brightness over time, as years of subtle stains can build up on tooth enamel. Our office is proud to provide professional whitening treatment, which helps to restore your naturally bright, beautiful smile.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Teeth whitening uses a professional strength hydrogen peroxide gel, which penetrates below the surface of the enamel to lift stains that have set in over the years. This reveals your natural enamel color underneath, restoring your smile to its original shine.
We’ll match the shade of your enamel on a color chart before and after your treatment, allowing you to clearly see the results of the whitening. For some people, one whitening session is enough to brighten their smile by as much as seven shades!
Is Teeth Whitening Safe?
Yes! When used as directed, teeth whitening is very safe for your teeth.
Some people have experienced sensitivity in their teeth and gums after whitening. When you visit the office for professional whitening, we use special procedures to protect your gums and minimize any chance of sensitivity.
Another benefit of teeth whitening is that it also contains potassium nitrate and fluoride, which help to strengthen teeth and reduce sensitivity after treatment.
What if I Don’t Have Time to Visit the Dental Office?
We understand that our patients have busy schedules that can make it hard to fit in extra dental visits. For patients on-the-go, we provide take-home whitening kits. These kits provide a custom-fitted whitening tray that you can use to whiten your teeth when it’s most convenient for you.
Transformations with Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are one of the most versatile cosmetic solutions for enhancing your smile. These thin porcelain shells are bonded to the front of your most visible teeth, creating a healthy and uniform appearance.
The lightweight porcelain shells can conceal a variety of dental issues, enhancing the appeal of your smile. If your smile is hindered by any of these issues, veneers can help you to:
- Restore damage from decay or trauma
- Hide uneven spaces
- Cover chips and cracks
- Reshape teeth
Digital impressions are used to create your cosmetic treatment plan and design your custom veneers. Each veneer is carefully crafted to appear flattering to your unique smile and compliment your features. A fine layer of enamel is removed from your tooth to allow veneer placement, but the inner tooth remains untouched and protected. The veneers are then bonded into place, becoming a permanent part of your dentition. With proper care and regular dental checkups, your veneers will last for many years.
Complete Your Smile with Dental Implants
Few things impact your smile more than missing teeth. When teeth are lost, the jaw no longer senses chewing pressure. The body gradually stops supplying nutrients to the bone, causing it to shrink. If the bone is too thin or brittle, implants won’t have the support they need. This makes it important to pursue implant treatment quickly after losing a tooth.
With dental implants, you can restore your smile's form and function thanks to bio-compatible titanium posts surgically inserted into your jaw bone to simulate natural roots. Implants become a permanent part of your smile, restoring your ability to speak, chew, and smile with confidence.
Our dental team has the skills and knowledge to complete your entire implant treatment. Whether you are missing a single tooth, a row of teeth, or an entire dental arch, implants can be used to remedy your tooth loss. If you have experienced tooth loss, our team can make your smile whole again.
Porcelain Crowns for Protection and Appeal
A dental crown is a cap that is placed over a damaged tooth to restore its shape and strength. Crowns are created to match your surrounding teeth, providing a natural and aesthetically pleasing finish.
The placement of a crown can usually be completed in two visits to our practice. During the first, we take X-rays and determine if there is enough healthy tooth structure to support a crown. After the decay or damage has been removed a digital impression is taken to create a custom restoration. The completed crown is cemented into place on your second visit and any final adjustments are made to ensure your bite is functional and comfortable.
Ceramic dental crowns provide strength to the tooth while also maintaining an attractive smile, making them a versatile option.
Composite Fillings for Discreet Restoration
If you have an amalgam (metal) filling, you know how dramatically it can impact the aesthetic of your smile. Fortunately, patients today have an alternative with composite fillings.
Composite fillings use a special resin perfectly matched to the color of your dental enamel. The material bonds tightly to your enamel, filling the void created by bacteria and decay.
3 Reasons to Consider Composite Fillings over Amalgam Fillings
1. Appearance – A composite filling blends in seamlessly with your natural enamel, and may be difficult to see even when you know it’s there!
2. Integrity – The composite resin bonds to your enamel more strongly than amalgam, creating a tight seal and making it more difficult for new decay to form.
3. Preservation – Another benefit of composite resin’s bonding quality is that it can fit into smaller spaces so that the dentist can preserve more of your natural enamel when placing these fillings.
Invisalign® for Comfort, Privacy, and a Straighter Smile
A straighter smile comes with a wealth of benefits, from an enhanced appearance to more effective home care. If you’re tired of dealing with crooked teeth, crowding, or spacing issues, but you’ve been reluctant to get metal braces, Invisalign could be your solution!
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign uses a series of thin plastic trays carefully designed to fit snugly over your teeth. Each tray is crafted to apply gentle pressure to specific teeth. With each new tray, the pressure slightly increases, subtly moving them into better alignment over time.
Can Invisalign Help My Smile?
If you have a mild to moderate alignment problems, such as crowding, gaps, or crooked teeth, Invisalign could be for you! However, patients with more severe issues, such as jaw misalignment, may need stronger intervention with metal braces. When you visit our office, our dentist will evaluate your smile and let you know if Invisalign would be a helpful option for you.
