When people think of cosmetic dentistry, they will likely think of teeth whitening, but there are several other popular cosmetic treatments. Your teeth are a focal point of your complexion; you deserve to have a smile you’re proud of! At LeDown’s Dentistry, our cosmetic dentist wants to give you the best possible experience with our comprehensive dental care.
Here are five of the most common services that we offer to patients looking for cosmetic solutions:
1. Teeth Aligners
We offer two different types of teeth-aligning options.
Invisalign: This teeth aligning treatment is a great alternative to metal braces. Invisalign can correct minor and major teeth alignment and bite issues. The treatment involves using a series of clear plastic aligners that have been molded to fit your teeth. Once you begin using your first set, every few weeks you will be sent a new one. After some time, your teeth will move into place. Adults and teenagers often use this method because it is harder to notice than metal braces.
Traditional and Fast Braces: There are some alignment and bite issues that cannot be corrected by Invisalign. This is why we offer fast and traditional braces. Fast braces are a newer type of brace that moves the top and root of the teeth at the same time. This gives a faster result than traditional braces.
We believe that traditional braces are the perfect solution for the majority of adolescents and children. Traditional braces are used for an average of two years but may take longer depending on the severity of the issues. When you come into our facility we will give you all the information you need so you can choose which braces are best for you.
Veneers are a type of dental crown. They are a thin covering that is placed on the surface of your teeth, generally placed on the front area. Veneers can cover discolored teeth, fill in gaps, and even correct your bite. Although many people think that veneers are specifically for cosmetic reasons, that is a misconception. Veneers can assist in fixing the functionality of your teeth as well. This treatment can help adjust your bite, rebuild worn-down enamel, and strengthen your teeth.
If you are considering veneers you will first need to come in for a consultation. We will determine whether veneers are the best option for meeting your teeth goals. Once we have made that decision, we will make models of your teeth and send them to our lab. We then send you the wax model to get your approval on how they may look. You will first use temporary veneers then you will get your veneers placed permanently.
Implants are specific to those who lose a permanent tooth as an adult. This can become a cosmetic and a functional issue. Our dental implants are made of three different components: the titanium screw or the implant, a crown, and an abutment.
If you are considering dental implants we first need to get proper 3D imaging. Dental implants are not for everyone with lost permanent teeth. The less at-risk patients will have dense bone tissue to make sure that the implant has the best stability it can. Our implants can help those who have one or more missing teeth.
4. Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Full mouth rehabilitation is for those patients who have severe oral pain or have worn down their teeth into nubs. This service rebuilds your smile, teeth, jaw mechanics, and gumline entirely. We set the goal to alleviate pain, restore your bite, repair damage, and give you the smile you want and deserve.
5. Teeth Whitening
Last but not least, the most popular, accessible form of cosmetic dentistry is teeth whitening. At our facilities, we use the Kor Whitening system. This system gives you deep whitening as it is one of the most effective bleaching systems available. This service is a very common practice for cosmetic dentists and it is completely safe. Follow the recommended procedures for oral care both before and after the whitening treatment to get the best results.
If you have yellowing teeth or would simply like to refresh your look, this cosmetic dental treatment will be perfect. Many people want to enjoy flashing a pearly white smile, and we’re happy to help you do just that!
