Cosmetic Dentistry

Thanks to advances in modern dentistry, teeth that have been affected by a range of imperfections or ones that have sustained damage from trauma or dental decay, can be restored to produce naturally beautiful and functional results. The cosmetic dental solutions available today can effectively improve and enhance the appearance of teeth that are stained, discolored, misshapen, chipped, fractured, gapped, crowded or broken down as the result of dental decay.

Prosthodontists are experts in the field of cosmetic dentistry. Their comprehensive knowledge of dental aesthetics and the complex treatment requirements of an optimally functional bite enables them to provide the highest quality of care to improve the health and cosmetic appearance of one’s smile.

Cosmetic dental solutions can range from relatively quick procedures that are non-invasive to more comprehensive treatment plans to restore incomplete smiles that have been affected by severely damaged, lost, or missing teeth.

Porcelain Veneers: If your teeth suffer from gaps, chips, stains, or discolorations you may be a candidate for porcelain veneers, a highly effective and minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that can achieve beautiful results.

Teeth Whitening: Teeth that have been stained or darkened by food, tobacco use, age, medications or injury can be lightened and brightened by means of a non-invasive process known as teeth whitening.

Dental Fillings: Dental Fillings are the most common type of dental restoration used to replace sections of teeth that missing, damaged or decayed. While traditional dental materials like gold, amalgam, porcelain, and composite successfully restore teeth; recent advances in dental technology have made a wider and improved selection of restorative choices available. Some of the newest state-of-the-art filling materials, including ceramic and the latest composite materials, are not only strong and durable, they offer the most aesthetically pleasing and natural looking results.

Dental Crowns: The terms dental crowns and caps are synonymous. When dental decay, cracked fillings, root canals or clenching and grinding of the teeth have caused extensive damage to the underlying tooth structure, a dental filling may not be a sufficient restoration. The only way to completely restore the cosmetic appearance and function of this tooth is often full coverage with a dental crown. The good news is that a completed dental crown looks and feels like a natural tooth.

Dental Implants: Losing a tooth due to injury, dental decay, or gum disease can happen. However, in order to avoid causing problems for the adjacent teeth and your overall dental health, it is important to replace the tooth that has been lost. This can be done any number of ways including fixed bridges, removable partial or full dentures as well as a more recent procedure known as dental implants.

Dental Contouring and Bonding: Dental bonding is procedure that is often used to restore teeth affected by decay as well as repair chipped or fractured teeth and mask a range of dental imperfections such as stains, discolorations, gaps, misshapen, or undersized teeth. A popular method for restoring and improving the appearance of a person’s smile, dental bonding qualifies as a cosmetic procedure by virtue of the fact that the composite resins used for the procedure are tooth-colored and come in a range of shades that blend seamlessly with natural tooth structure.

Dentures: Whether from disease, malnutrition, genetic disorders or an accident,  it is occasionally necessary for patients to have some or all their upper and lower teeth extracted. While this can be upsetting news, partial or full dentures can be fabricated to restore an attractive smile, provide needed support for normal facial contours, and reestablish a highly functional occlusion.
