25 Sep The New Era of Cosmetic Dentistry
Until recently, a visit with a cosmetic dentist was limited to patients with a lot of money and/or prestige. Today many dental procedures that provide a smile makeover have become more mainstream in this new era of cosmetic dentistry.
One of the most economical dental enhancements is teeth whitening. Zoom! teeth whitening can lighten teeth up to eight shades, which can provide a dramatic improvement in your smile in one brief dental appointment.
For patients who wish to whiten at home, Zoom! offers a take home kit. Acquiring whitening from your dentist allows the patient to experience a safe, tested, and proven teeth whitening program that is rendered by dental professionals who will be there to address your questions or concerns before, during, and after your whitening procedure.
For deep dental stain or spots on teeth, your cosmetic dentist can blend them away using a tooth colored bonding material. This product also works on chipped dental enamel allowing your dental provider to rebuild your tooth to match surrounding dentition.
Porcelain veneers are wafer thin, tooth colored shells that are cemented to the front of teeth that may be misshapen, uneven, contain unwanted gaps, are discolored, or to eliminate gum recession. They are made to match untreated teeth making this minimally invasive procedure a permanent way to resolve many dental imperfections.
Teens and young adults that never had their teeth straightened as children may think the time has passed for them to enjoy a beautiful smile. But with Invisalign clear aligners, teens and adults can undergo teeth straightening without the embarrassment of metal bands and brackets.
In addition to being clear, Invisalign aligners are comfortable (no metal or wires to cut oral tissue); convenient (no need to see the dentist to have wires adjusted to keep straightening on track); and they’re removable (you can eat all the foods you love).
Dental crowns have been around for a long time, but with this new era in cosmetic dentistry, you can receive a ceramic, tooth colored crown in one appointment when you visit your CEREC dentist. No more temporaries or two week waiting periods while a lab fabricates your restoration.
There are so many enhancements that are affordable, accessible, and have the ability to drastically improve your appearance … a consultation with your cosmetic dentist will demonstrate how you can improve your smile. Contact our team today!
