When our guests receive cosmetic dental treatments, they feel like they have a new lease on life. This is because the power of improving one’s appearance – especially one’s smile – is life changing. Living with a flawed smile can be socially isolating and affect self-confidence. Enhancing the appearance of your teeth can greatly improve many facets of your life. We offer a number of non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic treatments to help you feel and look your best. Some of our most popular services include the placement of white restorations like dental crowns, cosmetic enhancements such as porcelain veneers and cosmetic bonding, and professional teeth whitening treatments.
Dental crowns have cosmetic and restorative applications in dentistry. These custom tooth-shaped restorations are used to cover an entire tooth above the gum line. Crowns made from porcelain or porcelain laid over metal look incredibly lifelike. Dental crowns can give the appearance of a properly shaped tooth that looks white and healthy while also protecting weak biological tooth structure from disease and damage.
Bonding porcelain veneers to teeth is a great way to address all types of dental imperfections. Porcelain veneers are often used to produce a complete smile makeover. These ultra-thin, tooth-shaped pieces of porcelain are cemented over the front sides of teeth to conceal damage and imperfections. After treatment, patients enjoy an improved smile that appears natural and lifelike.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Over the counter teeth whitening systems and products like toothpastes and strips often fall short because their whitening solutions do not contain high enough concentrations of bleaching agents to lift permanent stains. Fortunately, professional teeth whitening solutions are prescription strength. Moreover, advanced technology such as lasers are used to speed up and deepen the whitening process. Our practice utilizes Glo Science Whitening®, which offers both in-office treatment and convenient take home systems for achieving and maintaining a bright beautiful smile.
Cosmetic bonding is a cost-effective solution to conceal intrinsic tooth stains, gaps, chips, and cracks. Using composite resin, a tooth-colored compound, our dentists can help hide smile flaws with a natural, affordable treatment. Cosmetic bonding is minimally invasive and only requires an office visit or two.
To learn more about options available to improve your smile’s appearance, we invite you to schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation at Advanced Smile Care. Our experienced and compassionate team will help you determine the best treatment or combination of treatments to help you achieve the smile you have always wanted.
What is a dental crown?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped restoration that can protect a damaged tooth as well as improve its appearance. White crowns, made from porcelain or porcelain fused to metal, closely resemble healthy biological teeth. Dental crowns are custom fabricated to exact measurements so that they can fit over an entire tooth. Essentially, a crown will cover the visible part of a tooth above the gums. When these restorations are made from tooth-colored materials, they can lend a very aesthetically pleasing look to one’s smile. A crown or series of crowns may be used to rebuild broken and worn teeth, conceal imperfections such as intrinsic stains and cracks, and provide a uniform, proportionate appearance.
What is a veneer?
A dental veneer is a cosmetic enhancement that conceals flaws and imperfections. These enhancements are made from porcelain and are crafted to cover the front surface of teeth. When a series of veneers are bonded to teeth, they can help produce a straight, white, and proportionate smile. Patients with cracked, crooked, stained, and misshapen or worn teeth may benefit from receiving porcelain veneers.
How can cosmetic dentistry improve the appearance of my smile?
Cosmetic dentistry can literally transform the way a person looks. Even a simple, professional teeth whitening treatment can dramatically improve the appearance of a smile by lifting permanent stains on teeth. Professional whitening can make teeth appear healthier and more vibrant. Other treatments such as cosmetic bonding or porcelain veneers can address an array of imperfections such as badly worn down teeth, misaligned teeth, and chips and cracks. The materials used to conceal imperfections closely resemble biological tooth structure.
How does whitening work?
Our practice uses Glo Science Whitening®. This system is a dual whitening method that is safe for teeth and effective at lifting deep, permanent stains. Dual whitening means that patients will receive a preliminary whitening treatment at our office and then continue to whiten their smiles with a portable take-home kit. Professional whitening is ideal because it produces noticeable results that can penetrate the enamel surface of teeth without harming tooth structure.
