A smile can be the most eye-catching feature of a face. With dentistry's many advances, you no longer have to settle for stained, chipped, or misshapen teeth. You now have choices that can help you smile with confidence. Even the most subtle change in your smile can make a dramatic difference in the way you look and feel about yourself.
Talk to your dentist about the options most suitable for you, what your expectations are and the dental fees involved. Cosmetic dentistry treatments currently in use include
Teeth Whitening (Bleaching)
Discoloration on teeth can appear naturally or as a result of smoking, coffee or tea drinking. Some discolorations cannot be removed by simply brushing the teeth or undergoing professional cleaning. With bleaching, one can remove these discolorations without actually removing tooth substance for a whiter, brighter smile.
Power bleaching - Power bleaching is for people with time-pressed schedules. The treatment takes place in the dental office and takes approximately 1 hour.
Home bleaching - In the dental office we create a tooth tray that the patient can use on a daily basis at home. The treatment time can vary between patients, but takes normally 2 to 3 weeks.
If you've ever wondered why so many individuals in public life have such perfect smiles, you might be surprised to find out how many of them have had cosmetic dental work!
One way that we can make your smile more attractive is to place porcelain laminate veneers or jacket crowns. Porcelain veneers are translucent, thin laminates made to improve the esthetics (shape, spacing, color) of natural teeth, to correct crowding, or to replace composite bonding.
Tooth-colored Restorations (Fillings)
Tooth-colored Restorations offer the same strength as natural tooth enamel and do not stain teeth. They limit further tooth decay, as the surface of Tooth-colored Restorations is very smooth and therefore does not adhere to any food particles. Tooth-colored Restorations are not only limited to new dental repairs, older restorations may also be replaced. These aesthetic materials will help give your smile a new lease on life!
