Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments: Quick Info

Feeling unhappy with the way your smile looks is not something you need to continue experiencing. Fortunately, the moment you decide you’re ready to make a change for the better, you have our cosmetic dentistry treatments within reach to improve the beauty of your smile. Feeling excited about altering imperfections but you aren’t even sure where to begin? Before you feel pressure to identify and choose a treatment, we encourage you to keep in mind that we will consult with you first to help guide you toward a treatment plan tailored to your needs. In the meantime, for an introduction to your cosmetic options, we have gathered the following quick info – take a look:

Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments

  • Teeth Whitening: This treatment will address the discoloration of your teeth. Whether you’re suffering from yellowing, darkening, or a general lackluster look, we offer in-office or at-home whitening systems, so you can enjoy a whiter, brighter smile.
  • Teeth Bonding: Bonding is an additive cosmetic treatment. We will “build up,” replace, or fill in missing tooth tissue with the help of a material called “composite.” Color-customizable and easy to manipulate, composite is something we may sculpt to address problems like stains, chips, cracks, or short teeth.
  • Teeth Contouring: You may want to think of contouring as the opposite cosmetic dentistry treatment as bonding. You see, bonding adds tissue, while contouring takes away a tiny amount. This is best suited to needs such as a tooth that’s too long, mildly overlapping teeth, a pointed or rough-edged tooth, and more.
  • Gum Contouring: With the use of a laser for comfortable treatment and efficient healing, we can improve the appearance of your gumline. This is especially well suited to patients suffering from a “gummy smile” or asymmetrical gumline.
  • Invisalign: Rather than rely on brackets and wires, you will wear clear aligner trays to shift your teeth into proper alignment over the course of treatment.
  • Porcelain Veneers: Veneers are extremely thin ceramic shells customized to your preferences. Each veneer will be bonded over a single tooth’s visible surface area to improve the overall esthetic quality of your smile.
