Cosmetic dentistry is the area of dentistry that is focused on improving the appearance of your smile, but the benefits go beyond just appearance. Your newly enhanced smile can help you feel more confident in your everyday life, improving your overall quality of life! Improved confidence can also lead to better success, both personally and professionally.
Additionally, your renewed oral health can protect you from various complications that can damage the health of your smile. From chipped teeth to tooth loss, many severe threats to your oral health can negatively impact your life. However, with cosmetic dentistry treatments, your teeth can be restored to full function and health, helping to protect your smile and saving you from further harm.
At Smile Now Dental Studio, we perform cosmetic dentistry procedures like teeth whitening, dental bonding, dental crowns, and porcelain veneers. These and other cosmetic dental treatments can dramatically transform your smile's health and appearance, helping you achieve the healthy and attractive smile you deserve!
We’ll discuss some of them below:
Dental bonding treatments address minor cosmetic concerns such as cracks or chips in the teeth. These treatments are quick and painless, making them one of the most popular services offered by dentists today.
A tooth-colored resin is bonded to the tooth using a special light during the procedure. Our dentist will then carefully shape and polish the resin to blend with the rest of the smile. In addition to cosmetic benefits, dental bonding can also help strengthen weakened teeth and repair minor fractures and cavities.
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain attached to the front of teeth to improve their appearance. They are typically used to fix tooth stains, gaps, chips, minor misalignment, and even slightly crooked teeth. Many patients choose to get porcelain veneers for cosmetic reasons, but they can also help some patients avoid orthodontic treatment in the future. This is because they can provide the look of proper alignment and spacing between teeth and address any bite problems contributing to jaw joint issues. This can help prevent further complications down the road.
A smile makeover is a treatment plan that can transform your smile through a customized combination of cosmetic procedures, which could include teeth whitening, dental crowns, bridges, porcelain veneers, or orthodontic services such as Invisalign® clear aligners. A smile makeover combines several cosmetic dentistry treatments to revamp the appearance of your teeth so you can have a beautiful, healthy smile.
A smile makeover is recommended when you have noticeable flaws in your teeth and gums that you want to be addressed for aesthetic reasons. For example, if you have teeth that are chipped, stained, cracked, misaligned, worn, or have large spaces between them, you may be a candidate for a smile makeover. Additionally, if you are unhappy with the overall appearance of your smile due to various dental issues, you could benefit from one or more cosmetic dentistry treatments.
Teeth Whitening Treatments
Tooth whitening is quick and effective, making it a popular solution for patients looking to enhance and brighten their smiles. In-office whitening is the fastest way to achieve significantly whiter teeth. We begin by protecting your gums and lips before applying a coat of special whitening gel to the outside of your teeth. We will then expose your treated teeth to a special light for a specified period, activating the whitening gel. Finally, we’ll remove the gel and apply another coat to give your smile added shine.
