There are many aspects to cosmetic dentistry. It can be as simple as sprucing up your smile with brighter, whiter teeth, all the way to changing the entire shape and look of your teeth with veneers or crowns.
Below is more information regarding the type of cosmetic procedures Serene Dental Aesthetics provides.
Over time teeth begin to discolor. This occurs naturally due to aging or environmental factors, such as staining from certain drinks, tetracycline staining or even tobacco. We offer In-Office whitening procedures and custom take-home whitening trays. The In-Office whitening will give you noticeably whiter teeth immediately. Take-home trays are custom fit to your teeth. At your convenience you will place the whitening gel into the tray and wear them everyday for a specified amount of time.
Everyone has a different smile and some find their smile not aesthetically pleasing. Veneers give you the ability to correct fractured, misaligned, or chipped teeth by correcting teeth shape. They do this with the use of very thin porcelain shells that cover imperfections such as gaps in teeth, stubborn stains, and others. These problems can be fixed with a Veneer procedure.
Composite bonding is a correctional procedure that has the ability to repair discolored, broken, decayed, or chipped teeth. This procedure is done by adding composite material into the cavity or outer surface and then sculpting it into the correct contours and shape. Once the preferred look is created the composite material is hardened. The purpose is to create a functional restoration that will blend in with surrounding teeth and appear more natural, creating a smile that looks healthy and bright.
Implants are created using artificial tooth roots that are placed into the jawbone to replace missing teeth. They have a natural aesthetic appearance and can be indistinguishable from natural teeth. Usually an implant is placed by a specialist and is restored by your general dentist.
The purpose of a smile makeover is to provide confidence for an individual. Everyone enjoys the confidence to smile and not worry about people viewing damaged or discolored teeth. These treatment plans for a “perfect” smile are started with a comprehensive assessment of the individual’s goals. The patient will work closely with their doctor to plan and ensure a positive result. The end goal is to always have a dramatic makeover smile for the patient that they enjoy for years.
