What is cosmetic dentistry?
While general dentistry focuses on ways to prevent disease and keep teeth and gums healthy, this subspecialty of dentistry is focused on ways to enhance and improve the overall appearance of your smile, whether that’s changing the shape of a single tooth, the color of your smile, or altering the full alignment of your teeth. If you have a healthy smile that doesn’t look its best, this is where cosmetic dentistry comes in.
What are the types of cosmetic dentistry?
Modern cosmetic dentistry has a lot to offer our patients. We sit down with each individual to learn more about what they dislike about their smile, what they want to change, and how they wish to do it. From there, Dr. Ostberg and his team will map out a custom treatment plan. Cosmetic dentistry can be a singular treatment, or we can provide patients with custom makeovers, which involve utilizing two or more types of treatments to help you achieve the results you never thought possible until now. Some of the most common and popular types of cosmetic dentistry include:
Our powerful whitening system, coupled with laser technology, helps to blast away deep yellow stains from teeth in under one hour. We can get teeth multiple shades lighter in often just one treatment session.
This non-invasive cosmetic technique involves bonding a tooth-colored resin (the same resin used to fill cavities) to teeth to reshape, resize, and even hide small imperfections such as small gaps between teeth and tiny discolorations.
This treatment is often used alongside dental bonding and involves reshaping and resizing teeth by shaving off small amounts of enamel. This option is great for people dealing with disproportionate or excessively pointed teeth.
Want to get that Hollywood smile? Then do what the stars do and get porcelain veneers. These ultra-thin porcelain shells are custom-made to cover the entire front surface of your teeth to give you a straighter, whiter, and more ideal smile.
