Are you unhappy about your teeth because of their flaws? Do you often hesitate to smile wide before others or while taking a photo? If your teeth are discolored, stained, crooked, chipped, cracked, crowded, or spaced too far apart and you are looking for the best solutions to fix them, cosmetic dentistry can help.
Cosmetic dentistry is the branch of dentistry that focuses on improving the appearance of a person’s smile.
Cosmetic dentistry strives to give patients a smile that is healthy and beautiful. Many procedures fall under cosmetic dentistry, including teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and dental bonding. Your dentist may recommend one or more of these types of procedures to help you achieve the smile of your dreams.
You can get a noticeably whiter smile with professional teeth whitening. The treatment involves placing a dental-grade whitening solution on your teeth and then activating the solution with a special light. The gel and light work together to whiten your teeth in several shades.
If your smile is dark because of surface stains, teeth whitening may be the most effective cosmetic dentistry treatment for you.
Direct veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the fronts of teeth. These shells are fitted over the front of teeth to conceal imperfections and give patients the appearance of a naturally beautiful smile. Direct veneers are customized to the contours of each tooth and are color-matched to the surrounding teeth.
Cosmetic dentistry procedures such as dental bonding can rejuvenate your smile. Dental bonding is the application of a tooth-colored composite resin material. The resin is bonded directly to the tooth, typically to fix a chipped or cracked tooth, fill a gap between teeth, or conceal discoloration.
Dental implants are a popular tooth replacement option because they offer an effective, lasting solution. Dental implants are designed to mimic the look, feel, and function of a natural tooth.
Dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone, where they will eventually fuse with the bone. Once the implant has bonded with the jawbone, small posts are attached to the implant. These posts protrude from the gums and provide a strong, durable anchor for replacement teeth.
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that specializes in the alignment of teeth. The benefits include a straighter, healthier smile that is also more aesthetically pleasing. Major orthodontic treatments include braces and Invisalign aligners.
Dental crowns are a common cosmetic dentistry procedure to restore teeth damaged by decay, infection, or injury. A crown sometimes called a cap, is placed over a tooth to restore its shape and size, strengthen it, and improve its appearance. Crowns can also be used to improve the appearance of teeth with cosmetic flaws, such as cracks.
Snap-on-Smile is an affordable, non-invasive solution for patients who want to enhance their smiles. This treatment option is ideal for patients who want to hide their smile imperfections but do not want to undergo traditional cosmetic treatments.
Snap-on-Smile is a restoration that is worn over your teeth. The restoration is made up of a gum-colored base and tooth-colored resin. Patients can remove the restoration whenever they want.
If your gums are uneven, gummy, or jut out too far, we can reshape your gums to improve the aesthetics of your smile.
