An Overview Of Cosmetic Dentistry

We offer a number of dental treatments, such as preventive care to help you maintain good general oral health. We also use restorative dentistry to improve the function of your smile. However, cosmetic dentistry help us boost the overall attractiveness of your teeth and gums. We can address a variety of problems, such as stained teeth or even misalignment.

Getting Started

First, schedule a consultation. Did you know that we offer a free cosmetic consultation? We use the visit to sit down with our patient and discuss his/her smile goals and what issues he/she hopes to address. We then examine the teeth, gums, and other parts of the smile to assess the cause and extent of the esthetic concerns. Finally, we can recommend the treatments necessary to improve the smile’s beauty.

Address Discoloration

For example, if you have teeth stains, we need to figure out what kind. For example, surface stains, also known as extrinsic discoloration, are often caused by the foods and drinks we consume, as well as tobacco use. Using our whitening system, we perform an initial treatment and send the patient home with a set of trays and a bleaching gel to continue treatment for the next week or two. However, intrinsic stains, which form underneath the enamel, may not always respond to whitening. We may instead mask them with bonding or veneers.

Correcting Problems with a Tooth’s Shape or Alignment

We can also place restorations, such as lifelike dental fillings, custom ceramic crowns, and dental bonding, to repair chipped, cracked, or misshapen teeth, often in one visit! In addition, if you have misalignment, we can correct the issue with a series of clear custom plastic aligners.

Preventive Maintenance

After treatment, we can discuss preventive options to help your smile remain bright and beautiful, such as brushing, flossing, and routine dental cleanings.
