Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment Options
Invisalign corrects cases of minor tooth misalignment or poor spacing, where the problem is mostly cosmetic. Invisalign was created for the patient that wants straighter teeth without wearing visible, uncomfortable metal braces.
Porcelain crowns or “caps” are small tooth restorations that look, feel and function similar to a natural tooth. They are placed on teeth that are cracked, broken or otherwise structurally compromised and need support and strength. Crowns blend in seamlessly with the surrounding teeth and last for many years.
Dental bridges are used to close gaps left by missing or extracted teeth. A traditional dental bridge is usually composed of an artificial tooth attached to a crown on either side.
Dental bonding involves using a clear resin material to sculpt or shape a tooth and improve its appearance. Bonding is a quick and easy way to repair small chips or cracks, close small gaps between the teeth, cover stains and make the teeth look longer.
Porcelain veneers are small pieces of ceramic that slip over the surface of the teeth to mask imperfections. Veneers can be used to conceal small chips, cracks, stains, discoloration or spaces; they can also improve uniformity in tooth shape and size.
The Snap-on-Smile is a non-invasive, removable arch used for cosmetic purposes. Thin yet strong, it fits over the teeth and gives you a beautiful smile immediately.
Professional teeth whitening treatment can lighten teeth up to eight shades in an hour. Powerful bleaching agents are applied to the teeth to lift stains and discoloration for a gorgeous white smile.
Nowadays many dentists are replacing old metal fillings with tooth-colored fillings. The composite resin material used in the fillings is similar in color and texture to natural teeth, so they blend in flawlessly and are inconspicuous.
Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
Q: If I want a “Hollywood Smile,” does it cost movie star prices?
A: Depending on what you want done, it can be as little as bleaching for under $200, or a full mouth transformation. Often, we can do this in stages, allowing you flexibility to complete your treatment at a pace that works for you.
Q: Are caps or crowns the only way to get a perfect smile?
A: Actually, there are many ways to get a perfect smile. Cosmetic Dentistry can be compared to art. There can be a number of different choices to obtain the result you are looking for. That is why we have free consultations, so that you and the doctor can decide on an option right for you.
Q: Why should I consider Cosmetic Dentistry?
A: Enhancing your smile can bring many rewards. Recent studies show that a smile that you can be proud of boosts self-confidence and can actually help you with job searches and promotions. Cosmetic Dentistry not only enhances your smile, it helps create a “new you.”
Q: How much do braces cost?
A: The cost of braces varies based on the specific needs of the patient and the kind of braces chosen. The dentists at Dental Health Associates will work with you to determine the best course of treatment and provide you with a complete estimate for the cost of your care.
