CONFIDENCE

Cosmetic Dentistry

Confidence comes from feeling great and looking great, don’t you think? And when we look as good on the outside as we feel on the inside, there’s no greater source.

Is there something you’d change about your smile?

If so, you’re not alone. More than half of Americans report that they’d love to improve their smile or that they do not feel confident in their appearance because of the state of their smile.

But you don’t have to live with a smile you don’t love. Cosmetic dentistry can help you get the beautiful, brilliant and bright smile you deserve.

What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

The term “cosmetic” is used when referring to dental procedures designed to improve the aesthetic appearance of the smile. These include:

  • Whitening treatments, which lighten teeth and make them appear whiter
  • Tooth bonding, where tooth enamel is repaired using composite resin materials
  • Dental crowns, which are placed over damaged areas of the tooth
  • Teeth reshaping such as gum contouring
  • Gum grafting, where tissue from other parts of the mouth is transplanted into the area around missing teeth
  • Dental implants, which replace one or more natural teeth by placing artificial roots directly into the jawbone

How Does It Work?

When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, most people think of whitening products like bleaching gels and strips. But these aren’t actually meant for improving smiles; instead, they work on stains caused by coffee, tea, red wine, tobacco smoke and certain medications. The goal of whitening treatment is to remove surface staining without changing the color of the underlying tooth structure.

What Can Cosmetic Dentistry Treat?

There are many cosmetic dental procedures available today, and each one is designed to address different issues. Some treatment options may be used as preventative measures while others will correct problems such as:

  • Discoloration from teeth whitening
  • Tooth sensitivity due to tooth decay
  • Missing teeth
  • Crowding
  • Gum recession
  • Broken/fractured fillings
  • Cracked enamel
  • Chipped or broken crowns
  • Teeth gaps between restorations
  • Crooked teeth

How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Improve Your Smile?

A beautiful smile is one of life’s greatest pleasures, and cosmetic dental procedures are designed to enhance it. These treatments are designed to improve the appearance of your smile and include treatments such as:

Whitening. Brighten teeth by removing stains caused by coffee, tea, tobacco, red wine and more. Professional tooth-whitening systems use safe bleaching agents to remove discoloration from enamel without damaging the surface of the tooth. The result is whiter, brighter smiles!

Gingivoplasty. Enhance gum health and reduce gums receding into the mouth. This procedure tightens loose skin around the gumline and improves its contour for an attractive look. It also helps prevent future problems like periodontal disease.

Porcelain veneers. Create a new outer layer on top of existing teeth to cover chipped, cracked, stained, misshapen, unevenly spaced or misaligned teeth. Veneers provide a natural-looking solution to these common issues. They may be used to correct minor imperfections or create a completely different smile design.

Dental implants. Replace missing teeth with implants that fuse directly to surrounding bone. Dental implants offer long-term stability and support while improving chewing function and facial aesthetics and completing your smile after tooth loss.

Tooth bonding. Fill gaps between teeth using composite resin material bonded to the front surfaces of teeth. Teeth bonding provides immediate results and requires no drilling or cutting of any permanent tooth structure.

Orthodontics. Get straighter teeth through orthodontic treatment, including clear aligner therapy.

Tooth-colored fillings. Replace damaged tooth structure or outdated metal fillings with restorative materials that match your natural color.

Not Just Beautiful. Healthy, Too

While giving you the smile of your dreams is important to us, making sure that smile is healthy is also important. Why? Because a beautiful smile doesn’t matter much if you don’t have a healthy mouth or cosmetic enhancements cause you pain and jaw problems later in life. As a result, we’ll treat any existing condition first — then make cosmetic smile enhancements.

This includes addressing areas of tooth decay, gum disease, jaw problems, and other dental health and oral health issues.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Dental Services?

Anyone who wants to have a better-looking smile can benefit from cosmetic dental treatments. Here are some questions to ask yourself about your smile and how you feel about it:

  • Do I want my smile to change? If so, what do I hope to achieve?
  • Do I think this will help me get ahead at work or attract someone special?
  • Will it give me confidence when meeting people?
  • Is there anything wrong with my current smile?
  • Are there things I would like changed? What does my dentist say about my smile?
  • How does it affect my daily routine?
  • Does the appearance of my smile bother me?
  • Can I smile with confidence?
  • Am I willing to invest time and money in getting a great smile?
  • Do I smile with confidence in pictures or in the presence of others?
