Do you feel uncomfortable with your smile’s appearance? We understand that problems with the shade or shape of your teeth can leave you feeling embarrassed. Fortunately, we can offer cosmetic treatments to improve the beauty of your smile. Should you schedule a free cosmetic consultation to see if you would benefit from one or more of our treatment options?
What Happens During the Consultation?
First, we will talk to you about your smile goals. Then, the doctor will carefully examine your smile, including your teeth, gums, and even your jaws. From there, the doctor can accurately assess the cause and severity of the cosmetic issues impacting your smile. We can then discuss different treatment options to improve your smile, taking your goals, budget, and the state of your oral health into account.
One of the more common requests involves brightening a patient’s smile. In most cases, this can be done with teeth whitening. We perform an in-office procedure and then send the patient home with a set of trays and a bleaching gel. After a week to ten days of wearing the gel-filled trays each day, the patient returns for a final office visit. The remaining gel can be used to touch up the smile in the future.
However, if you have permanent stains, which may not respond to teeth whitening very well, we have other options. For teeth near the back of the mouth, we can mask stains with cosmetic bonding. For teeth near the front, we can place porcelain veneers to improve the shade of the teeth.
If you have broken or malformed teeth, or gaps between your teeth, we can use porcelain veneers, dental bonding, or even a single visit crown to improve your smile’s appearance.
If you suffer from misalignment, we can use Invisalign to address the issue. Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners instead of metal braces to improve smiles.
