Cosmetic dentistry is any dental procedure that’s performed to improve the appearance of your smile. With cosmetic treatments, your dentist can enhance your teeth in several ways, like making it more white, full, or symmetrical.
Your teeth are much more than just functional tools for eating and speaking––they’re also an essential component of your look and a reflection of your personality. When you’re dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile, it can leave you self conscious and embarrassed.
Cosmetic dentistry can alleviate you from those negative feelings and give you a smile you’ve always wanted. When you’re proud of your aesthetics, you’ll feel freer to laugh, smile, and communicate with others.
At Fillmore Dental Spa, every cosmetic procedure begins with a consultation. Your dentist spends time with you to get a sense of how you envision your ideal smile and what you’re expecting from cosmetic dentistry. Then, she devises a treatment plan to get you results.
For some patients, this might mean a simple teeth whitening, while for others, it might mean combining multiple procedures for a smile makeover.
Veneers are used to correct a wide variety of unsightly dental distortions or conditions, such as: Tooth discoloration, noticeable gaps, permanent stains, broken or misshapen teeth.
There are 2 kinds of veneers, Porcelain and Resin. Porcelain Veneers are more aesthetic, natural-looking , and longer-lasting than the Resin Veneers which uses a filling-like material and is applied to your tooth chair-side, although the cost is less they do not last as long and over time tend to discolor and stain.
Teeth whitening is one of the quickest, easiest, and most effective treatments for improving the appearance of your smile. Fillmore Dental Spa provides patients with dual teeth whitening, which encompasses both in-office, chairside whitening, and take-home whitening trays. The result is a stunningly, bright smile that lasts for a very long time.
Invisalign is a revolutionary system of orthodontics that straightens your smile with a series of clear plastic aligners. If you’re self-conscious of teeth that are crooked, crowded, or too widely spaced, Invisalign can improve your appearance with a treatment that’s comfortable, convenient, and discreet.
A crown is an artificial tooth cap that your dentist permanently bonds to your tooth. In cosmetic dentistry, a crown is an excellent tool for restoring a single tooth that’s discolored, unsightly, or misshapen. Fillmore Dental Spa offers CEREC® same-day crowns that can restore your tooth in a single office visit.
A bridge replaces a missing tooth. It’s a fixed appliance that your dentist bonds to your abutment teeth, which are the teeth that are adjacent to your missing tooth. Once in place, your bridge holds a pontic (artificial tooth) in place between your abutment teeth, effectively bridging the gap.
