Enjoying a beautiful smile isn’t reserved for just the rich and famous. In fact, our team at Beautiful Dentistry believes that everyone is worthy of a stunning and attractive smile. For this reason, we offer a variety of cosmetic services and treatments to help residents of our area feel and look their best. A smile says a lot about a person; and an imperfect smile can take a toll on one’s self-esteem and mood. When providing smile makeovers, Dr. Heap and our team strive to produce more than just beautiful results; we aim to change lives. Some of our most popular services include professional teeth whitening, bonding, porcelain veneers and enamel shaping.
Having white teeth can make a dramatic difference in your appearance. People tend to associate white smiles as healthy, youthful and vibrant. Beautiful Dentistry provides powerful whitening services from our practice. We utilize safe yet strong bleaching gels that penetrate the enamel surface of teeth so that deep, permanent stains can be bleached away. Most patients achieve dramatic results in just one treatment; but others may require follow up treatments or take-home kits to achieve their desired results. When performing whitening services, we use shade indicators before and after treatment to demonstrate the effectiveness to our patients.
Cosmetic Bonding and Porcelain Veneers
Cosmetic bonding and porcelain veneers are two different methods for concealing smile flaws and imperfections. Bonding involves applying composite resin – a tooth-colored compound – over the teeth to hide chips, cracks and jagged edges. Sometimes bonding might be used to cover intrinsic and extrinsic discoloration. Veneers, on the other hand, are custom cosmetic enhancements made from high-quality pieces of porcelain. These razor-thin, custom-made shells are cemented over the outside of teeth to produce a perfectly straight, white and uniform smile.
Enamel shaping is a non-invasive and non-surgical method for improving the appearance, texture and feel of teeth. This treatment is also referred to as contouring and involves smoothing out the grooves and pits of teeth to diminish noticeable jagged or rough edges, as well as to reduce the visibility of chips and cracks. Enamel shaping can also improve oral health, since bacteria tend to collect on the pits and fissures of teeth. Smooth surfaces are not only beautiful, but also easy to keep clean.
