Clear Invisalign aligners gradually straighten misaligned and crooked teeth over time. Invisalign uses a series of aligners that are switched out every few weeks. Each set is slightly different as it shifts the teeth into a straighter position. The Invisalign aligners are clear and discreet. Patients can also remove aligners to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Because of this, Invisalign is a great alternative to traditional braces. To learn more about how Invisalign clear aligners can help straighten your smile, see Invisalign.

Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers are porcelain ceramic shells that we bond to the front of teeth. With dental veneers, we can cover small gaps between the teeth, slightly crooked teeth, stained teeth, and damaged teeth. Porcelain ceramic veneers can be used on multiple teeth to create a bright, straight smile. To learn more about how veneers can benefit your smile, see Porcelain Veneers.

Teeth Bonding

Dental bonding treatment uses malleable material that is sculpted and bonded onto teeth. This tooth-colored composite resin can cover cosmetic imperfections, including chips, fractures, stains, and gaps in the teeth. When the bonding material is cured, it easily blends in with the color of the natural tooth enamel. To learn more about the bonding process, see Dental Bonding.

Teeth Whitening

We can treat years of tooth stains with in-office and take-home professional teeth whitening treatments. Zoom! and KöR are effective treatments that use high-quality active ingredients that penetrate stains in the tooth enamel. With professional teeth whitening treatment, patients can brighten their smiles by multiple shades. To learn more about the tooth whitening services we offer in our office, see Teeth Whitening.

Why Get Cosmetic Dentistry?

When people want cosmetic dentistry, it’s typically because they’re unhappy with the looks of their smile. And often, the consensus is that cosmetic dentistry is for looks alone. But it’s far from that. Underlying oral health problems cause many cosmetic dental problems. When we perform cosmetic dentistry treatments, we target the root cause, treating both oral health and cosmetic concerns.

One of the best examples of this is crooked teeth. People lose confidence in their smiles when they have crooked teeth. But they come with multiple oral health impacts. Crooked teeth are harder to clean than straight ones. They come together at odd angles and are often cramped and crowded. Sometimes, we can’t reach certain areas even with specialized dental tools. Even if you do everything right with oral healthcare, you’re still at a higher risk of tooth decay and gum disease because you can’t clean these areas.

Crooked teeth also cause uneven bites. When your bite comes together, the pressure distributes evenly throughout your teeth. But when crooked, some teeth take on more pressure than others. These teeth wear down prematurely and are more susceptible to chips, cracks, and other damage. You then need restorative dental treatments to correct the damage to your teeth.

Uneven bites are one of the leading causes of TMJ disorders. Because the bite doesn’t come together properly, the jaw joint doesn’t track properly either. It starts to break down the joint as the muscles and ligaments that help move it become strained and tense. You may experience your jaw popping and clicking, pain throughout the head and face, and issues opening and closing your mouth. It might get caught in certain positions.

Cosmetic dentistry can help prevent all of these things from happening when you straighten your crooked teeth.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Do you have more questions about our cosmetic dentistry services? Continue reading to discover more about cosmetic dental care with answers to these common questions:

What are the differences between porcelain veneers and dental bonding treatment?

Porcelain veneers are thin, porcelain ceramic shells covering the front and sides of the teeth. Dental bonding uses material that is sculpted and cured onto the tooth enamel. Veneers last longer than bonding treatment, though tooth bonding is a more economical option for smaller cosmetic needs.

Can I whiten my smile if I have sensitive teeth?

Our professional teeth whitening treatments are formulated with tooth sensitivity in mind. However, we may recommend dental bonding, porcelain veneers, or dental crowns if you have highly sensitive teeth. These cosmetic and restorative options cover areas of discoloration with tooth-colored materials.

Why should I straighten my crooked teeth?

Crooked teeth are not solely an aesthetic problem. Because it can be hard to clean between misaligned teeth, bacteria easily build up in hard-to-reach spaces. Over time, this bacteria can cause problems like cavities and periodontitis. Crooked teeth also create an uneven bite, which is a contributing factor to TMJ disorders. This is because they put more pressure on some teeth than others, which can stress the TMJ.

Are porcelain veneers or bonding treatments painful?

No, although patients may feel soreness following their treatment, they will not feel pain during the veneer or bonding process. Some patients may think preparing their teeth for bonding or veneers may be painful. However, they will not feel any pain during treatment. If pain persists for a week after your bonding treatment, contact our office.
