Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments:

Smile Makeover:

  • Smile makeovers involve a comprehensive assessment of your smile esthetics in order to improve its overall appearance. Typically one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as dental veneers, dental implants, gingival sculpting and teeth whitening, will be required for several teeth in both the upper and lower arches in order to achieve the look you want.

Teeth Whitening:

  • Teeth whitening is perhaps the most commonly recommended cosmetic dentistry procedure. Teeth are often stained from smoking, food, drink (coffee, tea or red wine) or poor oral hygiene. Bleaching the teeth can enhance the appearance of your smile.
  • SmileDesign Dentistry & Braces is proud to introduce ZOOM Whitening™ by Discus Dental - the first one day bleaching process by the developers of Nite White™ at home bleaching.

Smile recountering:

  • Also known as tooth reshaping, is one of few instant treatments now available in cosmetic dentistry. Dental reshaping and contouring is a procedure to correct crooked teeth, chipped teeth, cracked teeth or even overlapping teeth in just one session.

Porcelain Veneers:

  • Laminates that are adhesively bonded to the surface of a tooth to correct and repair chips and cracks will improve a worn appearance or severe tooth discoloration. Veneers may also be recommended if you have gaps in your teeth or if you have not had success with teeth whitening.

Porcelain Crowns:

  • Similar in composition to fake nails, but much stronger and longer lasting, porcelain veneers are permanently bonded to the tooth surface. The color, size, position, texture, and shape of teeth can be changed without causing damage to the underlying tooth.

Composite Bonding:

  • A dental composite material with the look of enamel and dentin is applied into the cavity or onto the surface of a tooth, where it is then sculpted into shape, contoured and hardened with a high-intensity light. The result is a restoration that blends invisibly with the remainder of the surrounding tooth structure and the rest of your natural teeth to create a healthy, bright smile.

Invisible Fillings:

  • Seal the gap between the dental restoration and your tooth better than the older, mercury-containing silver fillings. This means that they are not only stronger, but less likely to decay or break down.

Inlays/Onlays:

  • Also known as indirect fillings, inlays and onlays made from porcelain or composite materials are a long-lasting yet cosmetic way to provide a "filling" to teeth with tooth decay or similar structural damage. Whereas dental fillings are molded into place within the mouth during a dental visit, inlays and onlays are created in a dental laboratory before being fitted and adhesively bonded into place by your dentist.
