If you want to upgrade your smile, consider cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dental procedures help patients who have stained, chipped, misaligned, or misshapen teeth to restore their smile’s appearance.
There is a cosmetic dental procedure to enhance your smile, from veneers to teeth whitening and full mouth reconstruction.
Teeth Whitening Stained or Discolored Teeth
Teeth whitening can brighten the appearance of discolored teeth. Our dentists offer safe, effective high-concentration whitening products with same-day whitening results.
We apply a bleaching agent to your teeth and use laser or UV light exposure to speed up the procedure. The in-chair whitening procedure takes about an hour so that you can achieve a brighter smile on your lunch break.
Ask your dentist about take-home whitening options. They include strong whitening agents and customized whitening trays for you to use in the comfort of your own home.
Dental Veneers for Discolored Teeth
Injuries, certain antibiotics and medicines, and teeth grinding can lead to intrinsically discolored teeth. If you have intrinsic staining and professional whitening won’t brighten your teeth, veneers can disguise dental flaws to give you a brilliant smile.
Veneers are tooth-colored shells applied to the front of your teeth. Your veneers are crafted to fit the contours of your teeth and gums, and they are color-matched to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.
Dental Bonding and Crowns for Chipped Teeth
Chipped teeth create an asymmetry in your smile that we can fix with either dental bonding or a dental crown. Dental bonding is a tooth-colored resin that your dentist adheres to the natural tooth and hardens using UV light exposure. Your dentist then shapes it to create a natural appearance and ensure proper bite alignment.
If the chip is severe, your dentist prescribes a dental crown to cap your tooth. Your injured tooth is shaped to accommodate the dental crown. After taking an impression of your tooth, a mold is made and sent to an off-site lab where your permanent crown is fabricated. You may be fitted for a temporary crown while you wait. Once the crown is ready, it is cemented in place. Dental crowns are customized to match your natural tooth color and shape for a realistic appearance.
Cosmetic Mouth Reconstruction
If you have multiple cosmetic issues from a traumatic injury or genetic disease, you may need a mouth reconstruction. The procedures included in a mouth reconstruction depend on your specific needs. We consider every patient on a case-by-case basis and use the latest diagnostic technologies to create a comprehensive reconstructive treatment plan.
Dental implants, bridges, crowns, and veneers are often necessary for mouth reconstruction. All the elements of your reconstruction are customized to match your natural tooth color, shape, and alignment.
