Cosmetic Dentistry: The Art of Beautiful Smiles
In the past few years, cosmetic dentistry has become increasingly available and affordable to people throughout the United States. In fact, someone you know has likely benefited from a cosmetic dental treatment like professional teeth whitening or white, tooth-colored restorations. Cosmetic dental procedures improve appearance by concealing and correcting imperfections such as stained, crooked, and chipped teeth. Our dentist is honored to offer smile-enhancing services that help our patients enjoy the many benefits of a beautiful smile.
Porcelain Veneers and White Restorations
For most people, dental work is inevitable. Teeth become worn down and damaged with time. In the past, metal and dark amalgam was used to restore diseased or broken teeth. Fortunately, there are more options than ever before when it comes to cosmetic and restorative materials. Porcelain, a popular material for restorations and veneers, is very natural looking. It reflects light as teeth do and comes in an array of white shades so that it blends seamlessly with natural tooth structure.
Crowns are used to restore a worn down or broken tooth while veneers are razor-thin enhancements that cover the outer surfaces of teeth. Veneers can conceal misaligned, yellowed, and chipped teeth while crowns restore a tooth to its proper shape.
For fillings or concealing minor flaws (cosmetic bonding), composite resin may be used. This compound is made from a mixture of glass and plastic and it can be tinted to match the exact color of natural tooth structure. Like porcelain, white fillings and cosmetic bonding are virtually undetectable to others.
Professional Teeth Whitening
For those who desire a noticeably brighter smile, professional whitening treatments are a great way to improve the appearance of teeth. We offer take-home whitening kits and in-office treatments that effectively lift deep, permanent stains. In-office treatment is non-invasive and takes less than an hour whereas take-home kits are used over time for convenient whitening or future touchups.
