Cosmetic dentistry procedures are dental treatments designed to give you a beautiful, healthy smile. Many procedures focus on improving the color, shape, and position of your teeth, but our dentist may also recommend procedures that enhance the health of your teeth and gums.
Here are some of the typical cosmetic dental procedures we offer:
- Teeth whitening
- Dental veneers
- Composite bonding
- Dental crowns
- Dental bridges
Teeth whitening is a common cosmetic dentistry treatment that uses a highly-concentrated solution of hydrogen peroxide to eliminate dental stains and whiten the teeth. When patients are unhappy with the color of their teeth, professional teeth whitening can help.
Veneers can dramatically improve the appearance of your teeth and completely cover any cosmetic flaws to restore your beautiful smile.
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain applied to the visible part of your natural teeth after filing down a portion of the enamel. Once the veneers are in place, they blend in with your natural smile. Veneers are durable and stain-resistant.
Composite bonding is a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure that improves the appearance of damaged or otherwise imperfect teeth using tooth-colored resin. This procedure can repair stains, close gaps, and fix small cracks and chips. Patients choose composite bonding because it is a fast, affordable way to improve the appearance of their smile.
Dental implants provide restorative and cosmetic benefits to patients. A dental implant, also called a tooth implant, consists of a titanium screw that is implanted into the jawbone, a connective piece called an abutment, and a prosthetic tooth known as a crown. Implants fuse with the jawbone and are, therefore, a permanent solution for replacing missing teeth.
Orthodontic treatments include traditional braces, clear braces, and clear aligners. Clear aligners are removable and customized to fit over your teeth. Clear braces are made from ceramic and are, therefore, less visible. Both braces and aligners work by applying constant pressure to the teeth to move them into place.
Porcelain crowns are dental restorations that can be used to strengthen damaged teeth, restore broken teeth, or complete a dental implant.
A dental bridge is a fixed dental restoration that is designed to replace one or more missing teeth. The bridge is anchored by crowns placed on the adjacent teeth. A dental bridge fills in the gap left by missing teeth and restores your bite.
