If you’re dissatisfied with your smile’s appearance, you’re not alone. Countless patients want to improve the shade or shape of their teeth or enhance the contours of the teeth or gums. Fortunately, a number of cosmetic dentistry interventions can help patients achieve these goals.
Cosmetic dentistry treatments address a range of aesthetic flaws in the smile. Here is an overview of some of the most popular treatments:
- ZOOM! Teeth Whitening – Teeth whitening treatments that you get from your dentist tend to produce more consistent, visible results than over-the-counter products, and this particular method gives you the most noticeable results in the shortest amount of time. The bleaching gel is applied to the patient’s teeth and then activated using lasers to help it achieve the desired effects in a little over an hour. Patients can walk away with their teeth up to 10 shades whiter.
- Porcelain veneers – These versatile tools can help your dentist to correct or conceal a number of relatively minor flaws in the teeth. The thin tooth-shaped shells are bonded atop the biological teeth to hide defects like chips, cracks and deep stains that don’t respond to other whitening treatments. Additionally, a porcelain veneer can cover up an unsightly undersized tooth or create the appearance of proper alignment in slightly crooked teeth.
- When the gums are problematic, aesthetic contouring can help. Your dentist can use lasers to re-shape the gum tissue and remove excess tissue that gives the patient an unattractive, gummy smile. Similarly, the teeth can be contoured as desired using ultra-fine diamond impregnated burs and discs. This procedure can be completed on a single tooth or multiple teeth, as needed.
All of these treatments can be provided in our dental office with state-of-the-art technology. They’re convenient for patients and they require minimal recovery time and therefore minimal disruption to the patient’s routine.
