White Restorations

White restorations can protect damaged teeth and improve the appearance of a person’s smile at the same time. When it comes to cosmetic treatments, sometimes restorations are used to improve the appearance of teeth by concealing imperfections and damage along with providing a durable alternative to old metal dental work. White fillings, inlays, and dental crowns can blend in seamlessly with adjacent teeth to produce a natural look. If various teeth are noticeably flawed, multiple restorations can be used to provide a uniform and healthy appearance.


Bonding Treatments

Cosmetic bonding is a treatment that conceals dental imperfections with composite resin. Composite resin is a tooth-colored compound. This compound can be used to fill a small cavity or it can be used to conceal stains, gaps, and chips on teeth. Bonding treatments typically do not last as long as other treatment options such as white restorations and porcelain veneers because the composite resin is not as durable as other materials.


Porcelain Veneers

For those desiring a smile makeover that can last for years to come, porcelain veneers are a great option. A veneer is a wafer-thin, tooth-shaped cosmetic enhancement. It is placed over a tooth to conceal its imperfections. Porcelain is the ideal material for veneers because it comes in a variety of white shades and reflects light like biologic teeth do.

Common Cosmetic Dentistry Questions

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry refers to treatments used to improve the appearance of teeth. These type of treatments normally do not improve the functionality of teeth but instead focus more on aesthetics. Issues like staining, tooth placement, and chips or cracks can be concealed with cosmetic restorations and enhancements like dental crowns, white restorations, porcelain veneers, and teeth whitening treatments in. Timely treatment is normally far less expensive and time-consuming than treating more advanced and complex issues.

What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a restoration that can be used to improve the appearance of damaged teeth. When used solely as a restoration, a dental crown helps protect the outsides of teeth from developing decay or damage. A dental crown is made to fit over a tooth like a cap. A crown will cover the biting surfaces and sides of all a tooth’s structure above the gum line.

What is a veneer?

A veneer is a cosmetic enhancement that is permanently bonded to the front surface of a tooth. Crafted from porcelain, veneers are used to conceal noticeable imperfections that affect the appearance of teeth. Bonding veneers over teeth will hide cosmetic issues such as permanent tooth stains, chips, and placement issues.

A veneer is tooth-shaped and wafer thin. It is custom made so that it will fit properly over the tooth to which it will be bonded. Veneers must conform to very specific dimensions so that they fit appropriately over teeth and look natural. When multiple teeth receive veneers, it can produce the appearance of a flawless, straight smile. Porcelain veneers are an excellent treatment option for those who have dental imperfections of various natures.

I have sensitive teeth; can I still whiten my teeth?

Chronic tooth sensitivity will make one pause before considering a special dental treatment or over the counter whitening product. One reason many people with tooth sensitivity fear teeth whitening treatments is that store bought products have been known to contribute to or even increase tooth sensitivity. This occurs because over the counter whitening formulas can contain harsh abrasives, which can damage tooth enamel and exacerbate sensitivity. Moreover, some patients might misuse whitening strips or rinses by using them too much or for too long.

Fortunately, a professional whitening treatment is safe for those with sensitive teeth. The whitening solutions utilize prescription-grade ingredients and proprietary formulas. Professional teeth whitening is potent enough to lift deep stains without contributing to permanent tooth sensitivity. Additionally, patients will be under the care of our dentist so that they can enjoy the beautiful results of teeth whitening without unwanted side effects.
