Boosting Smile Beauty With Cosmetic Dentistry

shrewsbury cosmetic dentistry

We want to help you smile with confidence, and we can do so by correcting your cosmetic imperfections with our treatment options. From teeth stains to misshapen teeth, we can offer an attractive appearance! In today’s blog, your Shrewsbury, MA, dentist talks about our cosmetic dental treatments.

The Cosmetic Consultation

To get started, we will schedule a cosmetic consultation. During this visit, our team will carefully examine your smile to assess the cause and severity of your esthetic concerns. We will also talk to you about your smile, and your hopes for it. With this information, we can plan treatment with precision, starting you on the path to a beautiful smile. We could offer a single treatment to address a specific issue, or combine multiple procedures for a smile makeover. Your smile is never too far gone, so contact our team today to see what we can do to offer results that make you feel confident again!

Our Teeth Whitening Treatment

Teeth whitening can remove stains and our professional option can offer results far more dramatic and longer-lasting than options you find in stores, like strips and toothpastes. We start with an initial office visit, in which we conduct an in-office treatment and then take impressions to create a custom set of plastic trays. We then send these home with, along with a powerful bleaching gel in several plastic syringes. At home, you add the gel to the trays and wear it for a set amount of time, usually between 30 and 45 minutes a day. For some, teeth could be eight shades brighter! You can keep the leftover trays and any remaining gel for touch-ups in the months to come.

Porcelain Veneers

For some, porcelain veneers provide a smile makeover in just two visits. The first visit involves our team numbing the tooth and removing a thin layer of outer enamel. We then take impressions and create your custom restorations, placing them in a second visit. Veneers cover the front and sides of the tooth, so we instantly mask teeth stains, repair minor damage, address misshapen teeth and lengthen worn down teeth too. The procedure could be used to close gaps between the teeth and even correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you have an even-looking smile without braces or aligners!

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding uses the same composite resin as our tooth-colored fillings, and we can offer treatment for cosmetic issues in only one visit. Our team places the material as we would a filling, numbing the tooth, removing decay and etching the surfaces, and placing the material in multiple layers. We then mold the tooth as the bonding material cures beneath a tooth. Finally, we polish it for a brighter appearance. Bonding can mask stains, reshape malformed teeth, and repair damaged ones too.

Cosmetic Contouring

Our team can also contour your teeth as well! With contouring, we will simply sand and buff the outer structure to address minor esthetic issues in only one sitting. For example, we can smooth our grooves, pits, and rough patches in the outer surfaces, and we can dull sharp, jagged, or pointed teeth. We can also address the appearance of minor chips, and reshape overly large teeth too.

Gum Contouring

What about your gums? If you have a gummy smile, this means you display too much gum tissue when you smile, making teeth appear shorter or uneven. To improve smile beauty, we will use a dental laser to gently trim away the excess tissues and reshape the gum line in the process, so you have better symmetry and a more attractive smile. The laser technology can do this in one sitting, and destroy harmful bacteria in the process. The risk of bleeding, infection, and swelling is reduced, and there is no damage to healthy gums due to the technology’s precision. Our team can also offer care without the need for dental anesthesia in some cases too!
