Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry can give you an attractive smile and show you at your very best! Beautiful teeth create much more than just a pretty smile, they promote positive dental hygiene habits, improve dental health in general, and help to develop an overall increase in self esteem.  Patients who have completed restorative and cosmetic dental treatment routinely report a dramatic improvement in their overall self-image.

Through recent products and advanced technical procedures, today’s dentists can  provide the services of contouring, brightening, fill-ins, aligning and veneering giving patients a greatly enhanced smile.There are four fundamental cosmetic dental procedures that exist in order to enhance the appearance of your smile. These procedures are: bleaching/whitening, contouring, bonding, veneers and dental bridges. Not only are all of these procedures immediate, dramatic and long lasting they are also simple and now inexpensive so that more people can afford them than ever before.

* Bleaching/Whitening – whitening, or bleaching, is the most common cosmetic dental procedure. While many whitening options are now available, including over the counter products, dentist-supervised treatments remain the recommended procedures for lightening discolored teeth.
* Contouring – also known as tooth reshaping, is one of few instant treatments now available in cosmetic dentistry. Dental reshaping and contouring is a procedure to correct crooked, chipped, cracked or even overlapping teeth in just one session. The dental contouring procedure can even be a substitute for braces under certain circumstances. It is also a procedure of subtle changes. A few millimeters of reduction and a few millimeters of tooth-colored laminate is involved. Tooth reshaping, or dental contouring, is commonly used to alter the length, shape or position of teeth.
* Bonding – is a process in which an enamel-like dental composite material is applied to a tooth’s surface, sculpted into shape, hardened and then polished.
* Veneers – are ultra-thin, custom-made porcelain laminates that are bonded directly to the teeth. They are an option for closing gaps or disguising discolored teeth that do not respond well to whitening procedures. Depending on the procedure, tooth reduction may be necessary
* Dental Bridges – are false teeth, known as a pontics, which are fused between two porcelain crowns to fill in the area left by a missing tooth. The two crowns holding it in place that are attached onto your teeth on each side of the false tooth. This is known as a fixed bridge. This procedure is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Fixed bridges cannot be taken out of your mouth as you might do with removable partial dentures. In areas of your mouth that are under less stress, such as your front teeth, a cantilever bridge may be used. Cantilever bridges are used when there are teeth on only one side of the open space. Bridges can reduce your risk of gum disease, help correct some bite issues and even improve your speech. Bridges require your commitment to serious oral hygiene, but will last as many as ten years or more.

It certainly is true that when you see a truly spectacular smile, you will not soon forget the person wearing it. So, if you feel that your smile is not white enough, bright enough, straight enough or just not what it should be, cosmetic dentistry can help. It can change your teeth, your smile, your face, yourself image, and ultimately your life.
