Cosmetic Dentistry Services
This is one of the great buzzwords in dentistry today. In our office we are capable of doing most of the cosmetic procedures involving the teeth. Periodontal Plastic Surgery to graft missing soft tissue is referred to one of the very fine periodontal surgeons in the area. We do not, however, put cosmetic desires over health requirements. The teeth, gums and supporting bone must be in a maintainable, sustainable healthy condition for ideal esthetic results.
Teeth Whitening, Veneers, Cosmetic Procedures
- Teeth Whitening
- The best way to bleach teeth is with a custom fit tray made by the dentist on models of the patient's teeth. The tray is worn for one to two hours a day and most bleaching is accomplished within two weeks. Touch-ups are required every few months. We do not do the one hour bleaching as it adds considerably to the cost, still requires wearing the trays to complete the process and usually causes much more sensitivity than using the trays alone. The sensitivity that may arise with bleaching will subside.
- Veneers allow partial coverage of a tooth to allow changing the shape or color of tooth without having to aggressively reduce the tooth. Minor orthodontic esthetic problems can be corrected with veneers depending on a number of factors such as tooth size, tooth position, lip and gum line positions, and existing restorations and decay. These are determined in the comprehensive exam.
