Cosmetic dentistry is an umbrella term for a number of dental treatments that are performed to improve the appearance of your smile. Our dentist will determine the right treatment option for you when you visit us for the consultation.
The quickest and easiest way to whiten your teeth is with in-office whitening. During your appointment, a dentist applies a whitening gel to your teeth and uses a special light to activate the gel. In as little as an hour, your smile will be several shades whiter. While in-office whitening is the quickest way to whiten your teeth, take-home whitening is more affordable.
In-home whitening kits are filled with a whitening gel. The trays are custom-made to fit comfortably around your teeth, and they are filled with gel. You’ll wear the trays for the recommended time a day or overnight. In as little as two weeks, your teeth will be several shades whiter.
While take-home whitening is more affordable, the results won’t be as dramatic as in-office whitening. Also, the trays can irritate the soft tissue of your mouth.
Porcelain veneers are one of the best cosmetic dentistry procedures available. They are permanently bonded to your teeth so they won’t fall out, chip, or wear down. They are custom-made to fit over your teeth and hide any imperfections. Veneers can give your teeth a straighter, whiter, and more youthful appearance.
Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure used to fix small imperfections in your teeth. Often called a tooth bonding procedure, dental bonding is a quick and affordable way to enhance the look of your smile.
Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth. The implant post is surgically placed into the jawbone, and a crown is then affixed to the top of the implant post. Once the post has fused with the jawbone, the implant is strong enough to support a crown, bridge, or denture.
A smile makeover is a collection of cosmetic dentistry procedures that restore health and beauty to a smile that has been affected by multiple oral health issues.
