When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, veneers are often recommended for enhancing various aspects of the teeth all at once. Thin ceramic coverings are attached to the teeth, completely hiding flaws like cracks, stains, and even small gaps. In most circumstances, you will only need to make two appointments to have veneers placed. We will take the time to customize them so that they’re both comfortable and natural-looking once they have been cemented in place.
Like veneers, cosmetic bonding is a versatile procedure that can be used to make many different kinds of corrections to your grin. But while veneers are better suited for full smile transformations, cosmetic bonding is typically a good choice for smaller issues, such as one tooth that has been chipped slightly. A thin layer of composite resin can be used to cover the flaws in question. The process is quick and can normally be completed over the course of a single visit.
Good oral hygiene often isn’t enough to prevent the teeth from becoming discolored. If you want to get rid of tooth stains and discoloration, you’re most likely interested in a professional whitening procedure. We do provide at-home whitening kits, but we also realize that some people are looking for faster results. For that reason, we offer ZOOM in-practice whitening. With this procedure, one appointment can be all it takes to brighten your smile by several shades.
Gum Recontouring / Crown Lengthening
When smiling, you shouldn’t be showing more than two or three millimeters of gum tissue. Any more than that can throw off the balance of your grin and make it look too “gummy.” For this type of cosmetic issue, we may suggest gum recontouring. We’ll use a dental laser to remove some of your gum tissue, thus reshaping your gumline. Less gum tissue helps ensure that your teeth are what stand out the most when you show off your smile.
Digital Smile Design
Is whitening really the best choice for your grin? How will your teeth look after having veneers placed? It’s normal to be hesitant about committing to cosmetic dentistry when you’re not sure what the results will be. Modern technology lets us capture pictures of your teeth and digitally alter them to show you what you can expect your smile to look like at the end of the process. You can wait to commit until you’re sure that you have a good idea of what the results will be.
A smile makeover is a more extensive cosmetic dentistry process that can be used to enhance the appearance of all of your teeth. What exactly does it involve? That can vary based on your situation. Whitening, veneers, cosmetic bonding, and other procedures can all be part of the smile makeover process. We’ll be able to figure out which treatments are necessary after taking a closer look at your teeth and asking about the improvements that you have in mind.
