If your teeth suffer from gaps, chips, stains, or discolorations you may be a candidate for porcelain veneers, a highly effective and minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that can achieve beautiful results.
Porcelain veneers are thin facings custom-made of the highest quality ceramic materials that are designed to fit perfectly over the front of your teeth. One of the most conservative cosmetic treatments available, veneers can mask a host of dental imperfections to give you the smile that you have always wanted. Porcelain veneers not only enhance and improve the shape of your teeth, they are able to create an overall whiter and brighter smile.
One of the most appealing aspects of the process of fabricating porcelain veneers is that they involve minimal tooth preparation and take just a few visits. Porcelain veneers, once they are fabricated and fitted, are permanently bonded to the underlying teeth. The result is a naturally pleasing smile that is both strong and durable.
Dentists are often called upon to treat the most difficult restorative and challenging cosmetic dental cases. Sometimes these cases involve multiple procedures to address complex dental problems that are affecting an individual’s entire occlusion. The term “full mouth reconstruction” is applied to these situations.
The process of full mouth reconstruction often involves rebuilding and/or replacing many, if not all of the teeth in the mouth, and can require the coordinated approach of a number of dental specialists. Candidates for full mouth reconstruction are individuals who have been cosmetically and functionally debilitated by extensive tooth loss, dental trauma, dental decay, dental habits, TMJ jaw-joint disorders, grinding their teeth, have suffered the effects of long-term acid erosion of tooth structure, or been affected by medical conditions or therapies involving the head and neck area. Additionally, individuals with congenital disorders that have dental manifestations like missing teeth or defective tooth structure may also be candidates for full mouth reconstruction.
Thanks to advances in modern dentistry, teeth that have been affected by a range of imperfections or that have sustained damage from trauma or dental caries can be fully restored to produce a naturally beautiful looking and functional smile. With the cosmetic dental solutions available today, your dentist can effectively improve and enhance the appearance of teeth that are stained, discolored, misshapen, chipped, fractured, gapped, crowded, or broken down as the result of dental disease or trauma.
Cosmetic dental solutions range from relatively quick and minimally invasive procedures to more comprehensive treatments designed to restore smiles, which have been affected by severely damaged, lost, or missing teeth.
Partnering with your dentist to discuss your expectations and smile goals is the best way to develop the most appropriate treatment plan to achieve the cosmetically pleasing and functional smile results that you desire.
Teeth that have been stained or darkened by food, tobacco use, age, medications or injury can be lightened and brightened by means of a non-invasive process known as teeth whitening.
Teeth whitening or bleaching simply refers to any process that will make the teeth appear whiter. While there are many over the counter options for teeth whitening, the most effective and safest teeth whitening systems are the professional strength ones available at the dentist’s office. A dental professional whitening system offers a higher concentration of whitening components and delivers them to the teeth in the most efficient manner to achieve optimal results.
At our office, we offer two exceptional options for tooth whitening. You can choose either an in-office tooth whitening procedure or a professional take home system. Both of these are top-of the-line systems. However, the biggest advantage of the in-office procedure is that in as little as one hour you can achieve a smile that is several shades whiter and brighter than the original color of your teeth.
Our professional strength take home system also produces excellent results. However, this is achieved by way of a more gradual process. Our take home kit may be prescribed alone, or after an in-office treatment to perfect or maintain the in- office result.
Six Month Smiles is a non-invasive treatment to improve an individual's visible smile. Unlike orthodontists, who change the patient's bite in it's entirety, Six Month Smiles is used to improve minor crookedness of a patient's teeth or spaces in-between which may make the individual uneasy or self-conscious about their smile. It is also a positive alternative to veneers, which is a more expensive option in which your teeth must be ground down and polished in order to place the veneers over the teeth.
As part of the aging process wrinkles and furrows can develop between the brows and crow’s feet can appear around the eyes. These age-related imperfections can result in a tired and weary appearance. Fortunately, there is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure available today that can effectively address these unwanted signs of aging.
Botox® is a prescription medicine that can be injected into the affected areas to dramatically improve the look of these fine lines and furrows. Made from a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, Botox® gives the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. It works by blocking nerve impulses and temporarily paralyzing the muscles that are causing these wrinkles and furrows.
Just a single short treatment with a few minor injections of Botox® can produce a noticeable improvement that will last several months. Studies also suggest that Botox® is effective in relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.
Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). However, as you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of HA in your skin. This lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds – like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth. Using a dermal filler such as Juvederm® is a safe and effective way to replace the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds. It is a simple way to restore a more youthful and vibrant appearance.
