At Restoration Smiles: Adult & Pediatric Dentistry, we practice cosmetic dentistry, the area of dentistry that focuses on improving your smile's appearance. Whether you want to whiten teeth, straighten them, or lighten their color, cosmetic dentistry can make it happen. Every smile is unique, so our dentist will work with you to create a customized treatment plan to leave your teeth looking their best.
Many patients are interested in cosmetic dentistry because having a healthy and attractive smile is essential in their personal and professional lives. However, some procedures may also be medically necessary, depending on your condition. If your dentist recommends a treatment they feel is essential for your dental health, that treatment may be classified as cosmetic, even if it’s not strictly for cosmetic purposes.
When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, goals range from removing stains on the teeth to covering or replacing lost teeth with dental implants and dentures. Other patients want to straighten their teeth to improve their smile aesthetics. Regardless of your goals for cosmetic dental care, our dentist will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that suits your needs and budget.
Depending on your goals, you may need to undergo one or a combination of treatments to achieve your desired results. For example, if you are missing several teeth from your smile and want to replace your missing teeth with implants, you would need implant-supported restorations like dental crowns to be attached to the implants and replace the teeth you lost. You may also need to undergo tooth extractions before receiving dental implants. On the other hand, if you are only looking to cover imperfections on your teeth, such as gaps between teeth, you may only need bonding or porcelain veneers for a smile makeover.
Even the most subtle color change can make a dramatic difference in the appearance of your smile. Professional teeth whitening is a highly effective way to whiten teeth up to eight shades in as little as one session.
Composite bonding can restore to its natural form a tooth that has been damaged by decay, injury, or infection. The composite material will be shaped to look like your natural tooth before being bonded to the damaged area to strengthen it and prevent further damage from occurring.
If you have gaps between your teeth or teeth that are broken or chipped, veneers may be the proper treatment. These thin porcelain shells are affixed to the front of each tooth to cover any imperfections and leave your smile looking pearly white and beautiful.
A smile makeover is a series of procedures designed to correct multiple cosmetic issues. Smile makeovers combine multiple cosmetic treatments that produce dramatic results, such as dental implants, dentures, porcelain veneers, dental crowns, teeth whitening, and teeth straightening. Each treatment addresses a specific issue within the mouth. By combining different dental treatments, a smile makeover is able to completely overhaul the appearance and function of the mouth.
A smile makeover can address both functional and aesthetic issues. If the patient has missing teeth, he or she may be a candidate for a partial or complete denture. This prosthetic is custom made to fit comfortably inside the mouth and can replace all or some of the teeth on the upper or lower arch. Similarly, if the patient suffers from tooth decay or gum disease, the dentist may recommend endodontic therapy to save the tooth from extraction. While improving the state of a patient’s oral health is an integral part of a smile makeover, the aesthetic portion of the treatment is the main goal. In fact, most patients report that their new smile increases their self-confidence and improves their overall quality of life.
Regardless of the type of dental treatment you need, we can always help you achieve the healthy and beautiful smile you have always wanted.
