What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry services give you a more aesthetically pleasing smile by correcting dental health and cosmetic issues like discolored teeth, crooked teeth or a misaligned bite. There are several benefits of receiving cosmetic dentistry, including:
- Improved self-esteem and confidence
- A better, more aligned bite
- Less pain from dental problems like TMJ
- New career or job opportunities
- Better relationships
- Protection from possible dental health and cosmetic damage
- Restoration of a youthful appearance
Our Cosmetic Dental Services
A dental veneer is a razor-thin shell cemented to the front surface of an impaired tooth. They can fix teeth that are severely worn down, discolored, chipped or broken, misaligned, irregularly shaped or gapped. We remove a small layer of enamel during the procedure to make room for the veneer placement. For this reason, the veneer treatment is considered irreversible.
One of the most frequent cosmetic concerns we receive involves the brightness of our patient's smiles. Hence, we offer professional teeth whitening procedures. They can effectively remove tooth stains and improve the color of your smile.
As we get older, our teeth will accumulate stains from certain foods, drinks, medications, and lifestyle habits. These extrinsic stains are easy to remove with a bleaching gel. However, many drug store bleaching products do not give the desired effects. As trained professionals, we use a bleaching gel with a much higher concentration than other alternatives. Our whitening procedures can make your teeth eight to ten shades brighter in a single office appointment.
Dental bonding is a less-invasive and cost-effective solution to address minor chips or cracks. The process involves the application of composite resin, a putty-like material, to the surface of a cosmetically impaired tooth. During the dental bonding procedure, the composite resin material will be color-shaded to the existing color of your enamel, making it practically indistinguishable from the rest of your smile.
If you want straighter teeth without wearing metal braces, consider Invisalign® technology. They straighten your teeth using clear aligners that fit snugly over your upper and lower teeth. You must switch to new aligners that shift your teeth slightly closer to the correct position every two weeks. These gradual movements are more comfortable than straightening with traditional braces. In addition, the aligners are removable and help keep your teeth clean and healthy during treatment.
