We can provide you with multiple cosmetic dentistry options for improving your smile. Whether you need dental implants to replace missing teeth, a teeth whitening procedure to brighten the ones you have, or dental veneers to change their shape or size – we have you covered. When you first visit our office, we will conduct a physical examination and take x-rays, so we can see the condition of your teeth and gums to determine if you have any infections, cavities, or oral health issues that need to be addressed first. Afterward, we can discuss what you do not like about your smile and create a plan for how to correct it. Since there is typically more than one way to solve any aesthetic challenges, we can present you with options and go over the various aspects of the procedure, so you can select what will work best for you.
Here are a few procedures we may suggest:
Teeth whitening. This is typically the first cosmetic procedure we suggest because it is fast, simple, and an excellent way to brighten your smile. We can remove deep stains and discoloration using our professional-grade whitening solution. Since our solution is stronger than what you can buy in the store, this is one cosmetic dentistry solution you should schedule an appointment for.
Dental veneers. If you have gaps in between your teeth, dark stains that do not come up with whitening solution, or teeth that are generally misshapen, we can use dental veneers to improve their appearance. A veneer is a thin shell bonded to the surface of the tooth. Your natural tooth remains intact, but what people see is the veneer. It is an effective solution for correcting nearly all cosmetic problems, including making your teeth appear straighter.
Dental crowns. When your tooth is severely damaged, a dental veneer may not be enough to restore it, and this is why we recommend a dental crown. A crown is a cap that surrounds your tooth entirely, so if it is cracked or chipped, you will be able to continue using it and bite down with force. We can create crowns out of ceramic or porcelain so they blend in with your surrounding teeth while still protecting your damaged one.
Dental implants. If you are missing a tooth, there is no better solution than dental implants for restoring it. This is the only tooth replacement surgically placed under your gums, and by securing it to your jawbone, a new root system is created for the tooth to be attached to. This, along with the skill of the dental lab, is what makes implanted teeth look and feel like natural ones.
If you are interested in improving your smile or just curious about our cosmetic dentistry options, we encourage you to call and schedule an appointment. We would be happy to discuss dental implants, teeth whitening, and dental veneers with you further, along with any other treatment that could improve your smile.
