Your smile is one of the first things others notice about you and smiling is an integral part of non-verbal communication. Smiling can put others at ease, make them feel welcome, and convey your appreciation. Because smiling is essential to our daily lives, cosmetic dental procedures can drastically enhance your appearance with natural-looking results. Our cosmetic dentist offers a variety of procedures that improve patients’ appearance including teeth whitening, white restorations, dental implants, and porcelain veneers.
Receiving cosmetic dentistry of any kind, including restorations such as tooth-colored fillings and white crowns, is a highly personalized endeavor. Virtually any imperfection can be improved with cosmetic procedures including cracked and damaged teeth, stained teeth, and missing teeth. Each cosmetic procedure is tailored to a patient’s specific needs and goals. For example, porcelain veneers and crowns are placed based upon exact measurements that complement the size and shape of individual teeth. Because of the personalized nature of cosmetic dental procedures, patients enjoy a natural looking appearance.
Materials used to improve smiles very closely mimic the appearance and texture of natural teeth. Porcelain for example, which is used to create veneers and crowns, is slightly translucent so that it reflects light much like a real tooth does. Furthermore, porcelain is available in a variety of white shades so that restorations and veneers can blend with the color of surrounding teeth.
In addition to improving the appearance of cracked, crooked, and chipped teeth with veneers, bonding, and crowns, our cosmetic dentist can substantially whiten smiles with Zoom! in-office whitening. This teeth whitening system utilizes powerful bleaching ingredients activated by a concentrated laser beam to lift permanent stains and brighten teeth up to ten shades. Convenient, the Zoom! whitening procedure takes just a little over an hour to complete.
