Candidacy for Cosmetic Dentistry
If you avoid smiling due to the shape, size, or color of your teeth, you may be a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry. Our treatments can help correct:
- Yellowed, grayed, or permanently discolored teeth
- Misshaped teeth
- Unevenly spaced teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Gummy smile or uneven gum line
Our Cosmetic Dentistry Services
We offer a full range of cosmetic dentistry treatments, including:
Porcelain veneers provide a permanent solution to covering your natural teeth and creating an attractive, balanced smile when there are stains, cracks, or uneven edges. Each veneer is created from medical grade porcelain to match the shape and size of your tooth, providing realistic results.
Before the thin shells are placed on the front surface of the tooth, a small amount of tooth enamel is removed in order to provide the most seamless fit. We also provide LUMINEERS®, also known as minimal prep veneers. These are thinner in style and require little to no enamel removal.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
For patients who are concerned with stains, chipped edges, or minor dental misalignment, and desire a more affordable solution than porcelain veneers, we also offer dental bonding. Dental bonding covers the front surface of the tooth using composite resin, a mixture of acrylic and glass. Much like porcelain veneers, the composite resin can be shade matched to provide natural-looking results. While dental bonding is more budget-friendly, the results are not as long-lasting as porcelain veneers.
Over time, tooth enamel has a natural tendency to change color. This is primarily due to age, the foods we eat, and lifestyle habits, such as smoking. When stains are minor to moderate and isolated to the outer surface of the tooth, we can brighten your smile with ZOOM!® teeth whitening.
Compared to over-the-counter whitening products, ZOOM!® laser teeth whitening can be completed in just 40 minutes and dramatically brighten your smile up to eight shades lighter. During the procedure, the dentist will thoroughly clean your teeth, apply the whitening gel, and then use a laser to active the product. ZOOM!® teeth whitening produces instant results with little to no dental sensitivity.
In years past, the only option for correcting smiles involved metal brackets and wire braces. While effective, traditional braces are noticeable and sometimes uncomfortable, and not usually a first choice for adult professionals. If you desire a straighter smile and a less-conspicuous treatment method, we are proud to provide Invisalign®, the world’s most advanced clear aligner.
Each aligner is made from clear, BPA-free plastic and designed to fit seamlessly over your teeth, virtually unnoticeable. At the beginning of your treatment, you will receive a series of aligners to wear over a nine to 12 month period. The length of your treatment will depend on the severity of your misalignment.
Cosmetic Gum Surgery
Gums are designed to frame the base of teeth to create a balanced smile. A crooked gum line can make even the straightest smile appear uneven. If you have a gummy smile or uneven gum line, we offer cosmetic laser gum surgery using WaterLase®. This state-of-the-art laser tool can trim gum tissue in a matter of minutes improving patient comfort and delivering amazing results.
For patients who have multiple cosmetic issues, our dentist can combine several cosmetic dentistry procedures into one treatment plan to deliver a complete smile makeover. By combining your procedures into one plan, it can help save time and money, and allows the same dentist to complete the work all under the same roof, providing more efficient results. Our office also offers BOTOX® Cosmetic for patients interested in eliminating fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and eyes.
