Cosmetic Dentistry faqsQ: What is cosmetic dentistry?

A: Cosmetic dentists provide procedures for patients looking to improve their image by improving their smile. Porcelain veneers, cosmetic bonding, and teeth whitening are some of the procedures cosmetic dentistry offers to correct embarrassing gaps between teeth, annoying chips that cause uneven edges, and unsightly yellowing or discoloration. Not all cosmetic procedures affect just the appearance of a smile; some procedures may also give your teeth better functionality, as well.

Q: How do I choose a good cosmetic dentist?

A: Since cosmetic dentists are not required to have special certificates or training, any general dentist can perform cosmetic procedures. We want you to experience quality cosmetic dental procedures performed by experienced general dentists. On our cosmetic dentistry page we give a detailed list of how to choose a good cosmetic dentist.

Q: What can I do to whiten my teeth?

A: We will listen to your concerns about the appearance of your smile in order to help you make the right decision. If you are looking for a brighter smile quickly and effectively, Zoom! Whitening may be right for you. Zoom! Whitening is a professional grade bleaching technique that gives you results in minutes. If you are looking for a more affordable option with less risk of teeth sensitivity, at-home whitening trays are a great option. We can make impressions to create custom whitening trays that fit the unique shape of your mouth.

If necessary, porcelain veneers and cosmetic bonding will not only brighten your smile but also improve your smile’s overall shape in just a few appointments.

Q: Which whitening procedure is right for me?

A: While whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes are good tools to maintain your smile’s brightness, the whitening results may not be satisfactory. Our experienced team of doctors and hygienists can give you the pearly white smile you desire with one of our cosmetic dentistry services. To help our patients discover the perfect procedure for them, we listen closely to their concerns about their appearance, their finances, their time, and their oral health.

Q: What can I do to improve the overall shape of my smile?

A: Gaps, chipped teeth, and uneven smiles can be damaging to your self-confidence. We understand that when your smile is dissatisfying, it can hurt your social and professional life. Therefore, we offer a variety of options for improving your smile’s overall appearance. For instance, porcelain veneers are a popular service for patients who need to repair a chipped tooth, close a gap, or smooth edges of their teeth. Thin porcelain will be customized to the exact shape of your teeth according to your need, and bonded to the front of a problem tooth. The porcelain can cover any imperfections including stains on the original tooth.
