Cosmetic Dentistry encompasses a wide range of services and treatments designed to improve the appearance of your smile. This can be something as simple as veneers to hide dental imperfections or something as complex as orthodontic treatments to straighten your teeth.
Despite the name, cosmetic dentistry does much more than just improve your appearance. The right cosmetic treatment can also improve your overall dental health. For example, by straightening your teeth, you decrease your chances of developing gum disease or grinding your teeth at night. Teeth whitening, on the other hand, also eliminates the presence of bacteria on your teeth which improves your breath and minimizes your risk for infection.
Our team is equipped to handle a wide range of cosmetic procedures, including but not limited to:
Zoom!® is a bleaching process that lightens the dentin and enamel of the teeth. Zoom!® contains a hydrogen peroxide component (25%), which is the active ingredient in the gel. When hydrogen peroxide is applied to the teeth, the peroxide component breaks down into tiny oxygen bubbles. It is these bubbles that eliminate yellowing and staining.
Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.
A composite (tooth colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling.
A beautiful smile you can be proud of can open up possibilities you might not have even considered. You might feel more empowered in personal relationships, have more confidence in meetings or job interviews, and just feel better about yourself.
