Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that specializes in improving the appearance of teeth and gums. We offer a wide range of procedures to help our patients achieve healthy and attractive smile.
Cosmetic dentistry typically involves procedures that improve the look of the teeth, gums and bite. Some common procedures include:
Dental crowns are often used in cases of tooth damage, which can occur as the result of decay, an injury, or biting down on hard foods. The crown will cover the tooth and restore its shape and function. It can also be used for cosmetic purposes, including improving the look of a misshapen or discolored tooth.
For patients with a missing tooth, a bridge can be used to replace the tooth. The teeth on either side of the gap are prepared for crowns, and the bridge is placed between them. The crowns are bonded to the teeth on each side of the gap, and the bridge is bonded to the crowns.
Teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dental procedures. It can help whiten and brighten your smile and can make your teeth appear less stained and discolored.
During your consultation with our dentist, you can discuss what you’d like to achieve with teeth whitening, and together you can decide whether teeth whitening is right for you. In some cases, teeth whitening won’t be enough, and other options may be better.
Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells made from a material called dental porcelain. These shells are custom-made to fit snugly over the fronts of your teeth, hiding any imperfections in your smile. Porcelain veneers are often fabricated to look completely natural and can last for many years with proper care. They can make your smile look straighter, whiter, and more attractive.
Veneers can be used to improve the appearance of worn, discolored, or chipped teeth. They can also be used to close small gaps between teeth, lengthen small or misshapen teeth, and create the appearance of longer teeth.
Dental bonding involves applying a tooth-colored resin material to the surface of teeth. The resin is molded and sculpted onto the tooth, then cured under a light, so it hardens in place. It can be an affordable and quick way to address minor cosmetic issues.
Dental implants are a great alternative to traditional bridgework and partial or full dentures. Implants function just like natural teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods without worry. They also help preserve your jawbone so that you can maintain the natural shape of your face.
Receding gums are common as gums continue to shrink over time. The appearance of receding gums can affect a patient’s smile. A cosmetic gum lift, or gum graft, is a long-lasting procedure that can restore a smile by covering exposed roots and giving teeth a brand new appearance. The gum lift procedure involves removing a small amount of tissue and grafting it to the tooth.
A smile makeover is a series of dental procedures that improve both the health and beauty of your smile. The procedures chosen depend on your goals for your smile. Your dentist will work with you to develop a plan that addresses all of your needs.
