What is Cosmetic Dentistry & What Can It Fix?
Cosmetic dentistry is performed to improve the functionality and appearance of your teeth, from correcting an overbite to brightening your teeth to a healthy shade of white. Many aspects of dentistry can fall under cosmetic, including teeth straightening and closing gaps.
Invisalign is a type of clear aligner therapy used to straighten teeth without needing metal brackets and wires. The clear trays are molded to fit your mouth and will be replaced every two weeks in order to encourage your teeth to continue moving, with each tooth altered slightly to adjust for straightening. We also offer two options for Accelerated Invisalign. Performed in-office during your regular checkups, Propel Accelerated Orthodontics stimulates the bones around your teeth, encouraging movement. It is painless and not invasive, taking just minutes during your appointment. OrthoPulse is an at-home procedure, taking 10 minutes each day. A mouthpiece device is used to stimulate your bones with ultra-high frequency light, reducing treatment time by half. You’ll even be able to monitor your progress through the OrthoPulse app, available right on your smartphone.
If you are looking for fast results, teeth whitening can be completed in as little as one two-hour long session without any downtime. Your technician will work with you to pick a shade that appears like the most natural transition from the current appearance of your teeth before applying a special gel. Using a light designed for the process, your technician will go over each tooth to break down surface stains and reach the enamel underneath. There is no downtime, but you will be provided with a list of food and beverages to avoid in the first days after the procedure as to not affect the results.
Veneers, Crowns & Implants
Do you have crooked or broken teeth that affect your smile? Porcelain veneers and crowns can cover damaged teeth, correct gaps, and even out your teeth without affecting your ability to talk or chew. Veneers are a covering, going over front of the natural tooth while mimicking its appearance, blending into your smile. Crowns are a full tooth covering that goes completely over your existing tooth. If a tooth is missing, leaving a larger gap, you can have implants installed. Your dentist will create a natural-appearing prosthetic out of composite materials, anchoring it into your gumline. Implants will maintain proper spacing in your teeth, preventing further issues from forming.
