Cosmetic Dentistry ProceduresWhen you have dental imperfections, there are a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures that can help. Don't remain unhappy with your smile when we can answer your questions and provide you with the cosmetic dentistry care you need.

What are the best cosmetic dentistry procedures for fixing a cracked tooth?

The answer to this question depends on how badly your tooth is cracked. If the crack is surface level only, this is very common and likely won't progress to anything worse. If the appearance bothers you, we can cover the front of your tooth with a thin bonding material to improve the appearance. This bonding will also slightly strengthen your tooth and can be used to fill in chipped teeth.

If we deem that the cracked tooth is an issue, we will most likely provide you with a strong, natural-colored crown. Our dental crowns are customized for each patient's teeth and will provide ultimate protection, so your tooth will not crack any further or be at risk for decay and bacterial infection.

Our crowns are also commonly used to cover discolored, misshapen, and chipped teeth.

If my teeth are crooked, but I don't want braces, is there anything else that will improve their appearance?

In situations like this, we often suggest dental veneers. Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain material bonded to the fronts of your teeth, covering any visible dental imperfections. Our dental veneers will offer you a straight, properly shaped, and tooth-colored improvement. This process is much simpler than having to wear braces for several months and provides immediate results.

If you only have one or two teeth that are poorly shaped, we may be able to employ our detailed contouring techniques to reshape each one. During this process, we use specialized dental tools to gently buff and contour small amounts of dental enamel.

If you still want your teeth aligned, but want to avoid braces, clear aligners are a popular option that will provide quick results when worn as directed. When you visit our office, we will determine what cosmetic straightening improvement is right for your wants and needs.

If I tried store-bought whitening before and it didn't work, will a professional whitening treatment be any better?

Yes. Professional whitening uses different combinations of bleaching agents that will provide quicker and longer-lasting results. We will help you use your whitening treatment properly by going over in detail whichever method we determine is best for you. We offer various types of dental whitening, so we can discuss your individual desires when you visit for one of our cosmetic dentistry procedures.

We hope these answers addressed your cosmetic dentistry procedures questions. If you would like to learn more, visit our office. We can provide you with all of the information you need about our various quality cosmetic dentistry procedures.
