With recent advances in cosmetic dental technology, what was once considered impossible can now be performed routinely. We now have the means and the know-how to treat such conditions as discolored, crooked, and missing teeth - often in one or two visits to a cosmetic dentist, and often without discomfort.
Porcelain veneers have now become a standard part of cosmetic dentistry. These veneers are thin shells of porcelain bonded to the front teeth. Using porcelain veneers, we can change the shape, color and length of your teeth in only two visits - instant orthodontics!
Dental bonding is a widely used phrase that describes how tooth-colored fillings are placed. Using dental bonding, we can eliminate discolored areas, fill in gaps, and also build back areas of gum recession.
Composite fillings (tooth-colored fillings) can now be placed in the back molar areas when tooth decay is detected. These fillings can be used instead of amalgam (silver) fillings and are virtually invisible. Dentists have fun placing composite fillings and patients like them, too.
Teeth whitening is a great treatment for generalized yellow or stained teeth. With custom-fabricated tooth bleaching trays, the bleaching procedure can be done at home at your own convenience. The process generally takes about four to six weeks and the results are very impressive.
With the treatment options available today, it's possible to have the smile you've always wanted. Let your dentist know if you're interested in learning more about these advances in cosmetic dentistry.
Have you ever smiled in the mirror and wondered what if?
What if your teeth were less prominent, or just a bit more even, or maybe that missing tooth was back in place?
Below you'll find the "What's In A Smile" quiz. It helps you play "What if" and then focus on what the mirror tells you.
Cosmetic dentistry isn't "just for movie stars" or "just for women." Typically it's very conservative treatment that returns huge dividends in personal self-confidence.
Today there are new tooth restoration materials and cosmetic dental care techniques that can put a beautiful smile within everyone's reach. For example, porcelain onlays and inlays can return structural integrity to damaged teeth, while leaving them looking as natural as the ones you were born with.
For teeth that are intact but seem to lack youthful sparkle, there are a variety of procedures that are simple, safe, and effective. You may want to inquire about teeth bleaching treatments, dental implants, or dental veneers that enhance your tooth enamel. Even a hygiene appointment can return light and color to your smile.
Many patients, whose appearance and self-esteem have been boosted enormously, have received only the simplest of cosmetic dentistry enhancements. Their only regret was that they'd waited so long to have them done.
Your cosmetic dentist will be happy to answer your questions. Please call to schedule a consultation.
