Some patients have more than one issue that they need to address if they want to achieve the smile of their dreams. In many cases, though, instead of undergoing multiple treatments to take care of these problems, they can just have porcelain veneers placed on the fronts of their teeth. Veneers can hide discoloration, broken teeth, gaps, and other flaws, leaving only a flawless, natural looking smile in their place. Each veneer will be customized to fit perfectly in your mouth and blend in with your smile.
Whether you already have a metal restoration or have recently suffered from dental damage that needs to be repaired as soon as possible, we can offer a beautiful solution for tooth repair. Metal-free dental crowns are made out of porcelain, which closely matches the color and light-reflecting properties of real, healthy teeth. Our restorations can be incorporated into the smile so flawlessly that most people won’t even have a clue that you had dental work done at some point.
If you’re looking to a quick alternative to porcelain veneers, you might consider cost-effective direct bonding. By simply taking some composite resin that matches your tooth enamel, we can re-sculpt a chipped tooth or hide minor stains. This procedure can be completed over the course of a single appointment; in comparison, veneers normally take at least two visits to design and place. The results of direct bonding can last for over a decade.
The number one change that many people say they’d like to make to their smiles is whiter teeth. Your grin may have lost a lot of its luster over the years due to simple aging as well as staining from dark-colored beverages such as coffee. However, we can help brighten your teeth again in as little as one hour with an in-office whitening procedure! If you’d rather improve your smile on your own time, we can also provide a professional-grade take-home whitening kit.
Have you ever been told that you have a gummy smile? Only a certain percentage of gum tissue should be visible whenever you pull back your lips to grin. Otherwise, your teeth might look small in comparison. Gum recontouring allows us to restore balance to your smile by reshaping the gum line and getting rid of tissue that is no longer needed. We can perform this procedure with a soft-tissue laser, keeping discomfort and bleeding to a minimum.
If you want a truly dazzling smile, then you have to pay attention to the rest of your face as well. Cosmetic injections of Botox and Juvederm can rejuvenate your skin and eliminate all kinds of wrinkles. Botox works by relaxing the wrinkles that cause muscles while Juvederm provides a hydrating substance to the skin in order to smooth it out. The effects will generally kick in within a few days and can be sustained with the help of follow-up treatments.
Our team is eager to help you achieve the smile you have always wanted. Before you partner with us to transform your teeth, however, you may want to know more about the road ahead. That is why we have put together the following brief list of frequently asked questions about cosmetic dentistry, along with succinct answers. If you do not see the information you were hoping for, feel free to give us a call — we look forward to speaking with you!
There are a few cosmetic treatments that can be completed in just a single appointment in our office. For example, a teeth whitening treatment may take only one hour, and it can brighten your teeth by several shades. Dental bonding is also quite fast. It can repair chips, cracks, and other imperfections without taking a lot of time out of your day. Other cosmetic treatments, such as veneers and metal-free restorations, require multiple trips to our office. However, we work as efficiently as possible with the goal of respecting your time.
Some cosmetic treatments have inherent oral health benefits. For example, metal-free restorations repair damaged teeth and protect them from further harm. They are also made out of more biocompatible materials than metal-based restorations. Other treatments, like veneers and bonding, can prevent the jagged edges of a damaged tooth from irritating the soft tissues in your mouth. Any cosmetic treatment is likely to motivate you to take excellent care of your teeth so you can maintain your stunning results for as long as possible.
Dental insurance focuses on services that are primarily geared toward protecting or improving oral health. Hence, it almost never covers purely elective services performed by a cosmetic dentist, such as teeth whitening and veneers. However, if there is a medical necessity for a service, it is more likely to be covered. For example, you might need gum recontouring before a crown can be placed. Crowns are also usually covered. If our practice accepts your type of insurance, we will do all we can to help you get as much as possible out of your benefits.
Anyone you see on a regular basis is likely to notice how good you look. Whether you get your teeth whitened, make over your smile with veneers, or undergo a cosmetic service, you can expect lots of compliments on your enhanced smile. However, we take great pride in making the results of our cosmetic services look as natural as possible. That means people should be looking at your radiant beauty, not focusing on the fact that “you’ve had some work done.” Strangers who have never met you before are unlikely to have any idea that your genes and good habits are not solely responsible for your gorgeous grin.
