Cosmetic dentistry is no longer just for the wealthy and celebrities

Our cosmetic dentistry services include:

Composite Bonding

With composite bonding, discolored, chipped, or decayed teeth can now be fixed without a trace using a material that resembles the natural shade of your tooth enamel. Your dentist will remove the decay and apply the composite. Sculpting is very important to get the right shape before curing it using high-intensity light.

This makes the best solution for damaged teeth. Unlike silver amalgams, this restores your tooth to its original appearance, or sometimes, even better! And it’s affordable, too!

Inlays and Onlays

These indirect fillings are made in the laboratory and are perfect for teeth with mild to moderate damage or if there isn’t enough structure to support a filling.

If tooth cusps are healthy, an inlay can be placed directly on your tooth’s surface. When the cusp or a much bigger portion of your tooth is damaged, an onlay is preferred to cover your tooth’s entire surface. These composite resin materials are attached to your teeth using dental cement.

They make teeth stronger, restore their shape, and avoid further damage.

Teeth Whitening

Who doesn’t know and want this simple procedure that can help improve the appearance of your teeth? Dentists often recommend teeth whitening when your teeth become severely stained because of tobacco use, medications, and some foods and drinks.

While several products claim to help whiten teeth, nothing beats professional work. Teeth whitening or bleaching is best done in a dental office. Your dentist will first check your teeth for plaque, tartar, and other debris. Proper application of the bleach is important for safety and maximum results.

Veneers

Do you want to improve the appearance of your tooth and your smile? No worries, you can do this easily with the use of dental veneers. These are thin coverings placed over the front part of your tooth. Made from medical-grade ceramics, they look very natural!

Veneers are very helpful in correcting many dental issues including, severe discoloration, chipping, uneven spaces of large gaps between the upper front teeth, and more. They are applied using a dental adhesive.

Other Options

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns, also known as caps, fit over and replace damaged teeth above the gum line, restoring their appearance and strength. A crown can help keep a weak tooth from breaking. This can also be used to cover a severely discolored tooth that can’t be fixed by teeth whitening. You can choose to have them made using a resin, metal, ceramic, or porcelain-fused-to-metal. Depending on the materials used, dental crowns can be a little expensive.

Dental Bridge

Do you have missing teeth? The best solution to closing gaps are dental bridges. These are false teeth that are held in place by the abutment teeth on either side of the space. Though available in several materials, like gold, most dentists will recommend porcelain to aesthetically blend with your natural teeth.

Other Options

Dental braces or orthodontic treatment can also be considered as a cosmetic procedure since it helps straighten misaligned teeth. It works by applying continuous pressure over some time and moving teeth slowly into a specific position.

Dental implants are part of cosmetic dentistry, too! These titanium roots are inserted into the bone socket of a missing tooth. The jawbone will grow around this post and will serve as a foundation for a replacement tooth.
