Brighter, Whiter, and More Confident
Some cosmetic dentistry is functional, like improving the bite pattern for even wear, but most cosmetic procedures are designed to improve the appearance of your smile rather than the purely functional ability to eat and speak. Aesthetic dentistry is designed to cater to a wide variety of needs and wants as they pertain to improving your smile, including teeth whitening, for example. One of the most common cosmetic procedures, it removes stains with more effect than over-the-counter whitening options.
Other procedures improve your smile by creating a new dental “façade,” including porcelain veneers placed over teeth and dental bonding. Dental bonding is the process of using a chemical compound to fill in uneven parts of your teeth so that you have a straighter and more uniform smile. It works for patients who suffer from tooth decay due to cavities, cracked or chipped teeth, or natural malformations. With a quick buff of your existing teeth, the dental compound is applied directly to your teeth, so your dentist can mold, trim and polish it to fit in naturally with your other teeth.
Get Straighter Teeth
Orthodontic braces are the metal braces used to align the jaw and the teeth for the ideal bite pattern and straightness. They’re most often used to straighten adolescent teeth and shift them toward growing in the right direction for a more attractive and better-functioning smile. Severely crooked teeth can cause problems with eating, or even foster cavities, by making it difficult to clean all surfaces of the teeth with a toothbrush. Using braces to correct these problems can prevent painful restorative dental work caused by tooth decay or uneven wear.
Invisalign® is an alternative to braces that’s hugely popular with both teens and adults. After all, no one will even know you’re in the process of straightening your teeth! Unlike braces, Invisalign® is clear and removable, so it works behind the scenes. You can enjoy all of your favorite foods and still practice brushing and flossing normally without any metal or wires. Invisalign® patients don’t need to visit our office as often, because the progress is pre-determined by custom-fitted trays, and you won’t experience any wires or discomfort that require extra check-ups.
