Cosmetic Dentistry & Implants
Not everyone is born with a Hollywood-style smile, but everybody can get one through cosmetic dentistry! Our dentists can use any number of treatments to address various aesthetic flaws in a patient’s smile, including stains and other discoloration, chips or cracks, misalignments or undersized teeth. A cosmetic dentistry treatment can even be used to replace a missing tooth with a prosthetic one that has a lifelike appearance and feel.
Types of Cosmetic Dental Treatments
Specifically, treatments like teeth whitening, dental veneers, cosmetic fillings, dental bonding and crowns, tooth resurfacing and dental implants fall under the category of cosmetic dentistry. As with other dental specialties, some of these interventions can produce noticeable results in as little as an hour, while others are more involved and time-consuming.
A patient may choose to take advantage of a single cosmetic treatment for a fairly minor problem or combine them for a smile makeover when a more comprehensive overhaul is desired. If multiple interventions are anticipated, certain treatments may need to occur before or after others. Your dentist can give you more guidance about the treatment timeline in your case so that you will have a better idea of what to expect.
