Everyone’s smile needs differ, so we bring you into the office for a cosmetic consultation before moving forward with treatment. We perform a thorough oral examination and discuss your budget and cosmetic goals for your smile. This lets us personalize your treatment, ensuring you get the right combination of procedures to get the smile of your dreams.
Invisalign treatment is a subtle way to straighten crooked teeth. Instead of metal brackets and wires, it uses clear plastic aligners to slowly move your teeth into the correct position. It’s an ideal solution for mild to moderate orthodontic concerns. Patients often opt for it because it’s very discreet, and they can take the aligners out to eat or perform their oral healthcare routine.
Porcelain veneers are thin dental ceramic shells covering the front and sides of your teeth. They’re a popular solution because they can treat many cosmetic concerns. Not only do they improve the appearance of your teeth, but they maintain or improve the functionality of your natural teeth.
Dental bonding treats many of the same concerns that porcelain veneers do. However, while veneers are considered a permanent treatment, bonding is temporary, lasting around 3-7 years. It’s completely removable and even eligible to treat children’s dental concerns.
Zoom! Teeth Whitening
Our office uses only the best products for professional teeth whitening. The Zoom! system can make your teeth up to eight shades whiter when you get the whitening procedure done in our office. We provide take-home whitening options, too, for a more gradual process.
Cosmetic Laser Contouring
Many patients struggle with a gummy smile. The teeth appear small and disproportionate in a gummy smile because there’s too much gum tissue. Laser gum contouring can balance your tooth and gum tissue. Dental lasers eliminate scalpels and provide incredibly precise treatment. Treatment is virtually painless, and the recovery time is shorter than traditional methods.
Why Get Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry provides many benefits to the looks of your smile. But you don’t only get benefits when it comes to looks. There are various other benefits you can expect when you get cosmetic dentistry.
Mental and Social Improvements
Your smile plays a big part in your self-esteem. It’s one of the first things people notice about you. You should be able to smile freely and confidently when you’re out in public. Instead of relaxing and talking to people, you may be anxious and trying to avoid showing your smile. A bad smile contributes to conditions like clinical anxiety and depression, seriously impacting your mental health.
When you’re happy with your smile, it shows. You radiate confidence in public. People are drawn to you, and it can improve your various social relationships. It even helps in your professional life. Employers trust people who have a good smile and a clean appearance. It shows your attention to detail and care about how a business sees you. If you’re interviewing for a new job or a chance at a promotion, you’re more likely to get it with a good smile.
Better Oral Function
Underlying oral health conditions cause many cosmetic flaws. When we correct these, we improve the root cause, improving both looks and functionality. One of the best examples of this is crooked teeth. Patients wanting to correct crooked teeth often do so because they dislike their appearance. But crooked teeth can cause a variety of possibly harmful oral health problems.
Crooked teeth often come together at strange angles. You’re also more likely to have cramped and crowded teeth. This makes them harder to clean than a straight, even smile. There are areas where you can’t thread the floss between your teeth. Even our specialized dental tools may not reach all of the needed areas. Even if you do everything right for your oral health, you’re still at risk of tooth decay and gum disease because plaque and tartar build up in those areas.
Crooked teeth also cause an uneven bite. When the upper and lower jaw come together, the pressure distributes evenly throughout your smile. When you have crooked teeth, some of the teeth experience more pressure than others. Those teeth wear down prematurely and are more likely to crack or break under extra pressure. This leads to a need for restorative dentistry to ensure you have the full function in your smile.
An uneven bite is one of the main causes of TMJ disorders. The muscles strain because they’re working to keep your bite in proper alignment. The jaw joint breaks down and becomes unable to track smoothly. You may experience popping and clicking, pain and tension throughout the face and head, and an inability to use your jaw in certain ways. The longer you have an uneven bite, the more severe the condition becomes.
