Cosmetic dentistry is an oral health subspecialty focused on the appearance of your smile. It uses whitening treatments, dental restorations, and other noninvasive procedures to treat tooth stains, cavities, and/or missing teeth.
At Whole Body Dental, the team offers various cosmetic dentistry services, including:
Your provider might recommend a crown if you have a severely decaying or damaged tooth. A crown is a cap made of porcelain that your dentist bonds on top of your tooth. Once placed, the crown prevents additional damage while restoring your biting and chewing abilities.
If you’ve lost a single tooth because of extraction or trauma, the team might recommend a dental bridge. A bridge closes a gap in your smile where a tooth used to be.
Dental bridges have a false tooth and a metal framework or two dental crowns. The metal framework or the crowns hold the bridge in place and keep it from moving around.
Veneers are thin shells of composite resin or porcelain that the team at Whole Body Dental bonds to the front of your permanent teeth. Veneers make your smile more symmetrical and cover minor imperfections like pointy or smaller-than-average teeth.
Zoom! Teeth whitening is an outpatient procedure that uses hydrogen peroxide gel to whiten your teeth. Once teeth whitening treatment at Whole Body Dental can make your smile up to eight shades lighter.*
If you have crooked or crowded teeth, the team might recommend orthodontics. Orthodontics uses removable plastic aligners to place pressure on your teeth and jaw. Over time, that pressure moves your teeth into the proper position, improving the symmetry of your smile.
You’re a candidate for cosmetic dentistry if you feel self-conscious about how your teeth, gums, or smile look. After an oral exam, a discussion of your goals, and a series of digital X-rays, the Whole Body Dental team can make custom treatment recommendations. Depending on your budget and needs, that might include one (or several) treatments.
