When most people hear the term cosmetic dentist, they think of dental services that are only for aesthetic purposes. While we do provide patients with strategies to get the smile they have always wanted, we also help people to restore their smile due to tooth loss or decay, traumatic injury or health issues that cause tooth problems.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, or if you have missing, chipped or cracked teeth, we can work with you to create the changes in your smile to allow you to feel positive, wonderful and confident in the way your teeth look and function.
To help you to understand the many cosmetics services we offer by our cosmetic dentists, let’s take a closer look at some of the most popular options for restoring or creating a beautiful smile.
- Veneers – veneers are very thin porcelain covers that are glued to the surface of your existing teeth. They are shaped to match your teeth, and can be used to make teeth look stronger, brighter and to fill in gaps between teeth. They are a good option to cover stained, cracked or chipped teeth.
- Crowns – crowns can be made of porcelain fused to metal or ceramic, and they cover an existing tooth to form a strong, healthy looking natural tooth. They are recommended when fillings are not possible to repair the damage to a tooth or when there is significant decay, chipping or cracking to the tooth.
- Composite fillings – unlike old silver or gold fillings, composite fillings are carefully blended to look exactly like the surrounding tooth. While often used in fillings, the composite material can also be used to fill cracks in the teeth or to rebuild areas of a tooth that may have been chipped or worn away.
These are permanent fixes to common problems that people experience. Other services that our cosmetic dentists can offer include implant restorations, root canals, teeth whitening procedures and even tooth straightening through Invisalign orthodontics.
