Cosmetic dentistry is the dental specialty focused on improving the appearance of your smile. While the goal of cosmetic dentistry solutions isn’t necessarily to improve oral health, some treatments like teeth straightening or resin dental fillings improve both your smile’s aesthetics and your overall oral health.
Most people experience staining or yellowing of their teeth over time. Dark foods and beverages cause teeth staining and the natural aging process contributes to thinner enamel, which also darkens tooth color.
To improve the state of your teeth Dr. Smith offers a variety of cosmetic dentistry services, including:
Dr. Smith offers both in-office and take-home teeth whitening products from Opalescence™. The in-office treatment works faster to remove stains and brighten teeth, but both forms of teeth whitening offer visible results to make your teeth appear several shades whiter.
Teeth whitening products contain hydrogen peroxide-based gel that breaks up dark stains in your enamel to help whiten and brighten teeth. Opalescence also contains fluoride, doesn’t require a hot light to activate, and works within 2-3 treatments of 20 minutes each.
Tooth-colored resin fillings are designed to blend in with your natural tooth color. Filling cavities with tooth-colored resin composite fillings repairs damaged teeth. Fillings restore the strength and appearance of the tooth while preventing future decay.
An orthodontic treatment that relies on clear, plastic aligners, Invisalign gradually straightens your teeth. Because they’re clear, Invisalign is barely noticeable during treatment. The Invisalign system improves your smile by bringing your teeth into the proper position.
To find out if you’re a candidate for cosmetic dentistry services, Dr. Smith reviews your oral health history, conducts an oral exam, and discusses your treatment goals with you. Based on this information, he creates a custom treatment plan that includes several procedures to help you reach your goals.
