Cosmetic dentistry doesn’t just refer to a superficial look, making the term “cosmetic” when used in dentistry to be a bit misleading. At our practice, cosmetic dentistry is seen through the lens of health, symmetry, function and biology. As these finest details are taken into account, we thrive on working with you to achieve the esthetics you desire. As we consider cosmetic restorative options, we make sure we consider the long-term stability of your mouth. For instance, we may recommend dental crowns which help keep damaged teeth from further deteriorating by giving the tooth a protective surface. We might consider dental implants which help prevent further bone loss and keep the bone structure stable to support the teeth. Along with proper hygiene, cosmetic dentistry can help improve oral health overall.
At Downtown Dental, we are a general dentistry practice that focuses on maintaining and protecting the health of our patients. All of our treatment options, listed below, will give you an insight into how we perform our procedures and what we offer for our patients to help them achieve better oral health and get a beautiful smile in the process!
Dental crowns, a highly popular treatment among cosmetic dentists, help protect damaged teeth by adding a protective cover over the tooth. Porcelain crowns are an ideal choice for patients due to their translucency, which gives them a natural appearance. Porcelain crowns can be used for patients who have large gaps in their teeth, have a discolored tooth that needs to be replaced and is best suitable for those allergic to metals. We order our porcelain crowns from our most trusted dental labs, and properly fit them onto the tooth so you can receive normal tooth function again.
Aesthetic Bonding with Composite Resin
For patients with chipped, discolored, and cracked teeth, we also offer aesthetic bonding treatments with composite resin to repair and mold the teeth back to perfection. Tooth bonding requires only minimal removal of tooth enamel, meaning it helps retain the structure of your natural tooth. Our composite resins come with a variety of tooth shades to match the color of your teeth, and the resin used can help repair any damage done to the teeth, restoring its health back to normal.
Veneers offer similar benefits to porcelain crowns, but instead of covering the entire tooth with an all-encompassing case, they cover the tooth with a thin shell of porcelain. Porcelain veneers can be used to fix tooth problems such as worn-out enamel, uneven teeth spacing, overcrowding, and tooth discoloration. At our practice, veneers can be customized to fit your facial symmetry and style, and have a high resistance to wear.
Teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to conservatively improve your smile. Whitening teeth also has psychological effects and can boost confidence and self-esteem. Our teeth whitening procedures work to remove discoloration from your teeth, and the added strength of our products will produce quicker, more effective results than over-the-counter options.
