Cosmetic dentistry is where we focus on improvement in dental aesthetics in color, position, shape, size, alignment and overall smile appearance. Flaunting a smile you’re proud of can do wonders for you physically & mentally. In fact, smiling releases endorphins, which are hormones known to improve your mood and make you feel happier on the inside. From CEREC® & Invisalign to veneers and tooth whitening, there are a number of ways that we can help you regain your natural confidence.
This is a process commonly referred to as “invisible braces” or “clear braces”. It allows us, in relatively simple orthodontic cases, to improve smiles, correct overcrowding and close spaces between teeth for adults. Clear braces have become a very popular alternative to traditional metal braces & provide an affordable option to straighten your teeth faster in a more comfortable & flexible way. Children who are still growing should, in our opinion, see an orthodontist.
This acronym stands for “Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics”. It’s a digital process that allows us to fabricate crowns, inlays, onlays and some veneers without having to send the case to a dental laboratory. Through the use of CAD-CAM technology right in our office, we can often produce and insert the restoration on the same day. There are many cosmetic materials available that come in a wide variety of tooth colored shades, which allows us to closely match almost any tooth.
These are used primarily for cosmetic reasons, such as when a tooth is stained and cannot be whitened through bleaching. Veneers are thin coverings that replace just the front of the tooth, which makes them less invasive than crowns, and they generally look like natural teeth. Do note that they’re extremely delicate, so the decision to use veneers should be considered very carefully.
