Cosmetic dentistry uses restorations, whitening treatments, and other procedures to improve the appearance of your teeth, gums, or bite.
Before making recommendations for treatment, your Lakeside Family Dental provider conducts an oral exam. They also take several factors into consideration, including your skin tone, hair color, and the position of your teeth.
Lakeside Family Dental offers various cosmetic dentistry services, including:
Veneers are porcelain shells bonded to the front of your teeth. They cover minor imperfections like chips, stains, or unusually shaped teeth. Veneers don’t last forever, but with good oral hygiene and routine checkups, they can last 12-15* years.
If you’re missing some or all of your permanent teeth, Lakeside Family Dental might recommend dentures. Dentures restore your biting and chewing abilities and prevent your existing teeth from shifting out of position.
A porcelain crown is a cap that your dentist bonds on top of a damaged or severely decaying tooth. The crown restores your tooth to its near-original shape and size, preventing the need for an extraction. Porcelain crowns mimic the color of your natural tooth enamel, ensuring the restoration blends in with your smile.
Invisalign is an advanced orthodontic treatment system that uses clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth and jaw. During treatment, you wear the aligners for 20-22 hours a day, only removing them to eat or brush and floss.
Zoom teeth whitening is a treatment that can make your teeth up to eight* shades brighter. Your Lakeside Family Dental provider applies a hydrogen peroxide gel to your teeth, during treatment. The gel oxidizes the molecules inside your tooth enamel, removing stains and discoloration.
If you have more than one cosmetic issue, Lakeside Family Dental might recommend full mouth reconstruction. Full mouth reconstruction combines several procedures, like teeth whitening and dentures, to enhance your smile and oral health.
To determine the type of cosmetic dentistry that will most benefit you, your Lakeside Family Dental provider reviews your dental records and asks what you dislike about your smile. Then, they conduct an oral exam and take a series of X-rays.
After gathering that information, they develop a custom treatment plan that aligns with your budget and goals.
