COSMETIC DENTISTRY

COSMETIC DENTISTRY
This can be anything done to correct imperfections in the appearance of the mouth. Anyone who is unhappy with their smile can have it fixed. The upper teeth show, usually, only when smiling, while the lower teeth remain hidden. This is reversed when talking, with the upper teeth remaining hidden while the lower teeth show. The color, alignment, spacing as well as regularity of the teeth are the characteristics that give the overall appearance. Any of these can be repaired to give a stunning look to the mouth.


We offer a wide variety of cosmetic options. Some of these options are whitening, veneers, bonding, and all ceramic/porcelain crowns.

WHITENING - INCLUDING Ultradent  Boost!
This is the procedure of making teeth whiter, and therefore more attractive. Our office uses several methods: in office Boost!, and professional strength Tres White at home whitening.

Boost! is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. It's safe effective and fast, very fast. In just over an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. The convenience of Boost! in comparison to days of using strips or wearing trays makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual. The Boost! Whitening procedure is simple. It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. The clinician then applies the proprietary Boost! whitening gel . Teeth typically become at least six to ten shades whiter, sometimes more. A fluoride treatment  can complete the procedure. You'll be amazed with the results. . Tres White recommended afterward for maximum whitening and maintenance. Log on to Ultradent's website, www.ultradent.com, for more information about their outstanding products.  

The end results whether using trays at home or doing Boost! is not the same.However,the cost of the tray method is about 1/3 to half compared to Boost!, and there is usually less post-treatment sensitivity.

VENEERS
Veneers are a dental procedure in which a covering is placed over the outside (visible area) of the tooth. Veneers are usually only done to the part of the teeth that are visible when talking or smiling. The procedure can be direct or indirect.

The direct technique usually involves placing composite resin on the outside of the tooth using bonding. This method is usually referred to as bonding.

The indirect technique usually involves two appointments because the veneers will be fabricated at a dental laboratory. At the first appointment the teeth are prepared, impressions taken, and the teeth are given a temporary covering. In two to three weeks the veneers are back from the laboratory, the temporaries are removed and the veneers are bonded to the teeth. The laboratory fabricated veneers are usually made using porcelain or pressed ceramic, and are very aesthetic.

The advantage of veneers versus crowns is that much less tooth material is removed, and the procedure is generally less uncomfortable. Veneers are recommended for teeth that have large fillings or little tooth structure.
