Aesthetic Dental Transformations
A cosmetic dentist can work wonders on even the most flawed of smiles, so regardless of your issue; the smile that you desire may be within your reach.
Cosmetic dentistry involves a number of interventions that can transform the appearance of a single tooth or the entire smile. These treatments can correct a wide range of problems, from chips and cracks to stains and misshapen teeth.
In planning your treatment course, your cosmetic dentist will meet with you for an initial consultation to assess your case and determine your smile goals. The information gathered at that first appointment will help to determine your treatment plan.
Cosmetic dentistry involves a number of interventions that can transform the appearance of a single tooth or the entire smile.
The cosmetic dentist may use any number of treatments in enhancing your smile. These interventions can be used individually for minor adjustments or in combination for a major upgrade.
Veneers are particularly popular tool for cosmetic dentists. These versatile tooth-shaped slivers of porcelain can be used to correct aesthetic problems like damaged, undersized or crooked teeth or deep stains that don’t respond to bleaching gels.
For patients who want to see results quickly, veneers are a good choice. They can be designed, crafted and placed within a matter of weeks.
For less intense stains or even just the yellowing associated with aging, teeth whitening can do the trick. A gel containing a bleaching agent is applied to the teeth, and it can achieve the desired effect in anywhere from an hour to a few days. Patients may choose in-office whitening systems like ZOOM!, which get teeth up to eight shades whiter in less than an hour. Alternatively, patients can opt to use the bleaching gels in custom-designed trays that they wear overnight at home.
Dental implants are beneficial to patients looking to improve a smile’s appearance after the loss of one or more teeth. These titanium cylinders replace the missing tooth’s root and anchor a prosthetic crown in place. Patients who have lost all of their teeth may turn to dentures. Today’s appliances are remarkably lifelike and comfortable, and they can be supported by dental implants for an extra measure of stability.
