What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry enhances the appearance of your teeth using a variety of techniques including restoration, placement, straightening, crowning, bonding or whitening.
Should I Get Cosmetic Dentistry?
If you are considering cosmetic dentistry, here are some questions you should ask yourself. The answers to these questions will help you and your dentist identify the elements of your smile that we can treat. They will also help clarify what you would like to see at the completion of your treatment:
- When you look in the mirror, do you like the way your teeth look?
- Do you dislike the color of your teeth?
- Are there spaces between your teeth?
- Do you have any cracks or chips on your teeth or are you missing any teeth?
- Do you have crooked teeth?
- Do you feel your teeth are too long or too short?
- Are you pleased with the shape and position of your teeth?
Professional teeth whitening can boost your confidence by giving you a brighter smile that can revitalize your entire face. We have two whitening options that are sure to produce a brighter smile!
Take-home whitening: Our Campbell Dental professionals will take an impression of your teeth to design custom-fit trays that fit securely around each tooth. A whitening gel is added to the trays and they are placed in your mouth. About two weeks after the procedure, you should notice a visibly whiter smile.
In-office whitening (Zoom): This system is a great alternative to the tray whitening system and utilizes a bleaching process that lightens discolored teeth. It is performed in the dental office by a dental professional. The procedure will take about two hours. A special gel is applied to the teeth and a special light works with the gel to break up stains and discoloration. Talk to our dentist to find out if it’s right for you.
Veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that are custom designed and permanently bonds to your tooth. The purpose is to protect the surface of damaged teeth. Veneers have other benefits including durability, improved smile, and little to no removal of existing tooth structure.
Veneers protect the surface of damaged teeth and may eliminate the need for more extensive treatment. Made from state-of-the-art porcelain, veneers mimic the properties of enamel, creating a beautiful, natural-looking smile.
A crown is a cover or “cap” can be placed over a tooth or implant. The crown restores the tooth to its normal shape, size, and function. A crown can make the tooth stronger or improve the way it looks.
You may need a crown if:
- You have a cavity that is too large for a filling
- You have a tooth that is cracked, worn down, or otherwise weakened
- You have had root canal treatment — the crown will protect the restored tooth
- You want to cover a discolored or badly shaped tooth and improve your smile
A cosmetic procedure can improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, broken, cracked, stained, or have spaces between them. With bonding, tooth-colored materials are attached, or bonded to the tooth’s surface. This process can improve unsightly stains from coffee, tea, tobacco or certain childhood medications, front tooth spaces, and accident-induced cracks or chips.
