Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry
Question: How do I get started?
Answer: First, you need to schedule a visit with the dentist. The doctor will examine your smile to assess the cause and severity of your smile issues. At our office we provide a free cosmetic consultation to start you on the road to a more attractive smile.
Question: How do I erase teeth stains?
Answer: We can erase most teeth stains with KoR Whitening. The doctor performs an initial treatment before sending the patient home with a set of custom-made trays and a bleaching gel. The patient wears the gel-filled trays daily for about two weeks, returning to the office for a final treatment.
Question: What if my teeth are chipped?
Answer: If you have chipped a tooth then we may recommend a dental bonding procedure. Cosmetic bonding involves applying a composite resin to the tooth to restore the missing structure. The dentist then sculpts the tooth as the material cures under a special light. In one visit we can restore the tooth. We can also use the procedure to close gaps between teeth or mask discoloration.
Question: Can one procedure fix multiple issues?
Answer: Yes. We can place dental veneers on the front of the teeth. Doing so masks common esthetic issues and changes the shape of the tooth. We can mask stains, correct misshapen or broken teeth, close gaps between teeth, and improve the appearance of minor misalignment.
