Dental imperfections can ruin your appearance. Your cosmetic dentist can provide you with a treatment plan that will fit your timeline and budget and with today’s materials and dental procedures, you can enjoy a smile makeover that will rival the most perfect natural smile.
Drab, discolored teeth; misshapen or crooked teeth; stained or decayed teeth; unwanted gaps between teeth; or to replace missing teeth … cosmetic dentistry has become mainstream and affordable for most patients allowing individuals of all ages to redo their smile.
Teeth Whitening: As we age, the shade of teeth are impacted by foods, beverages, tobacco use, lackadaisical hygiene habits, some medications, or illness. Removing stains and lightening teeth multiple shades can provide a magnificent smile improvement. In-office whitening can be accomplished in one brief visit or take-home kits are available for patients who wish to whiten at their own pace in the comfort and privacy of their own home. Either method allows the patient to obtain the maximum benefit under the care of their cosmetic dentist.
Dental decay and exposed dentin: Composite resin or teeth colored fillings are used to repair dental decay especially when cavities appear in the smile line. Dental bonding can be used to cover specific stained areas, and when gum erosion leads to exposed dentin, composite resin can be placed to protect these areas.
Missing teeth: For patients wishing to replace teeth that have been lost due to trauma, decay, or disease, dental implants are natural in appearance while restoring total functionality. Missing teeth can impact speech, restrict what you eat, and discourage smiling and interacting due to being self-conscious or embarrassed by your appearance.
Dental implants are placed in gum tissue where teeth are missing; bone in gum tissue will fuse to the implant making the implant a permanent part of your dental anatomy performing much like the root of a natural tooth. The final restoration that covers the implant will match neighboring teeth making your implants indiscernible while returning total functionality.
Dental veneers: Most of these are made from porcelain, a stain resistant material fabricated to match surrounding, untreated teeth. The wafer thin covers are permanently cemented to the front of teeth to hide a variety of dental maladies from deep stains; crooked, uneven teeth; unwanted gaps … this least invasive procedure allows your cosmetic dentist to permanently remake your smile.
