Metal-Free Dental Restorations

Creating restorations that blend in with your smile means we cannot resort to the traditional materials used to restore teeth afflicted with cosmetic chips and stains. Regardless of how we build your treatment plan, you can rest knowing that our dental office makes use of materials that are free of unnatural-looking metals, including silver amalgam, which is typically used in dental fillings. We carefully craft and design your restorations so that they blend in with your smile, not stick out like a sore thumb.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

When you have minor imperfections in your smile and want to fix them in the most affordable way possible, cosmetic bonding offers a quick and effective solution. Through the use of composite resin, which is the same material used to create tooth-colored fillings, our dental office can mold, shape and bond this material directly to your tooth. In a single appointment, we can hide chips, cracks, permanent discoloration and even gaps in your smile.

Teeth Whitening

Making your smile whiter can make a huge difference, which is why teeth whitening is one of the most popular treatments available in cosmetic dentistry. With the help of powerful solutions like Crest White Stripes, you can whiten teeth either in the dental office or while you’re on the go! You can easily whiten teeth throughout the year, keep your smile looking photo-ready, and boost your confidence when spending time with friends, family, or that special someone!

Gum Recontouring

In some cases, it may not be your teeth that need adjustments, but your gum tissue instead. When too much gum tissue covers your teeth, making them appear smaller than they actually are, we can perform gum recontouring to remove excess gum tissue. This treatment is minimally invasive and effective at removing excess tissue as well as making your gum line appear even. We’ll take every step to maintain as much of your natural gum tissue while still improving your smile’s appearance.

Invisalign

If your teeth are tilted out of alignment, there are noticeable gaps in your smile, or your bite isn’t properly aligned, you’ll be happy to hear that metal braces aren’t the only solution. In fact, Invisalign has helped millions of patients with orthodontic problems like these over the last two decades! This discreet teeth-straightening solution continues to be popular because the aligners are completely clear, there aren’t any dietary restrictions, and the average treatment timeline is significantly shorter than traditional orthodontics. If you want to learn more on the topic, including how Invisalign works, read on.

There are quite a few factors that go into determining which cosmetic dental service is right for you. Perhaps the most important one is what imperfections you’re looking to address. For example, stubborn stains can be fixed with teeth whitening and cosmetic dental bonding as well as veneers. Similarly, misshapen teeth can be fixed with cosmetic dental bonding, veneers, and metal-free restorations. During your consultation, we will review the perks of each in addition to other important information, like the cost, so you can determine which smile-enhancing service (or services) is ideal for you.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making

Remember, cosmetic dentistry is about so much more than improving the look of your smile. First, many treatments that fall under the “cosmetic” umbrella have the potential to improve your oral health as well. There are a few reasons for this, including that having a smile you love will motivate you to brush and floss consistently. Naturally, there are other benefits as well, including that patients with beautiful smiles are more likely to have success in both personal and professional settings. So, there’s really no limit to how investing in cosmetic dentistry can benefit you!

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

Simply put, there are multiple ways you can save, so give us a call if you want to learn more about how to make your treatment more affordable.
