Cosmetic dentistry is the branch of the dental industry that focuses on improving the aesthetic appeal of an individual’s smile through a variety of dental treatments. Most of the time, cosmetic dentistry involves elective treatments that improve the look of the natural teeth only.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic material that are bonded to the front of the teeth to improve their color, shape, or spacing. Their versatility allows them to improve the appearance of a single tooth or all of your smile. In some cases, veneers can be placed with minimal changes being made to the teeth. In other cases, we may need to trim your teeth to allow room for the veneers. We may also need to remove a small amount of tooth enamel from the front of your teeth prior to placing the veneers. This procedure is permanent and will require your commitment to maintaining excellent oral hygiene habits at home. Once in place, porcelain veneers can last for many years or even a lifetime if they are cared for properly.
Dental Implant procedure
Dental implants are permanent replacements for your missing teeth. Dental implants are titanium screws that lock into your jawbone to form a stable base for one or more replacement teeth. Dental implants are strong and stable and look and feel natural. Because dental implants fuse to your bone, they help to prevent bone loss in the jaw that can occur after losing a tooth. Dental implants can be used to replace single or multiple missing teeth. Unlike dentures, dental implants do not slip or slide around in your mouth while you talk or chew. Your mouth will feel completely natural with implants in place!
Invisalign are clear, removable aligners that are worn over your teeth to gradually straighten them into a beautiful smile. They are comfortable and practically invisible when you wear them, so you can continue living your life normally while undergoing treatment. They are also easy to pop in and out to eat or brush and floss your teeth. This makes them a perfect option for many people!
We offer in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments at our dental office to help remove stains and make teeth brighter. At-home whitening kits use peroxide gel to whiten the teeth, while our in-office treatment uses stronger bleaching agents that penetrate the enamel for faster results. Both methods are safe and effective and can make your smile look younger and more attractive. We have helped many patients enjoy a whiter smile with our cosmetic dentistry services!
