Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Consultations
Question: What happens during the initial exam?
Answer: We will first talk with you about your smile goals and results you hope to see. We then examine your smile, including the use of digital x-rays, the DIAGNOdent cavity detection system, and intraoral cameras. We can then identify the cause and assess the severity of your cosmetic issues, as well as any underlying dental health problems that require treatment. We then create a personalized treatment plan for you.
Question: What if I have stained teeth?
Answer: For most stains, we can employ professional teeth whitening, which uses a set of trays and bleaching gel to remove discoloration. For severe stains, we can mask them using porcelain veneers, dental bonding, or a combination of the two.
Question: Can you fix damaged teeth?
Answer: If a tooth is cracked or chipped, we may place a custom-made ceramic crown, which we can create and place in one visit using the CEREC system. We may also suggest the use of dental bonding and porcelain veneers.
Question: How do you correct misalignment?
Answer: If you have crooked or crowded teeth, we can use a cosmetic orthodontic solution. Instead of metal braces, Invisalign employs a series of clear plastic aligners to reposition the teeth in as little as year in some cases. The system can help patients of all ages, from children to adults.
