What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is the practice of improving the appearance of the teeth, mouth, and smile. Through various procedures, cosmetic dentists, such as Dr. Neeley and Dr. Litchfield, can repair, whiten, reshape, and straighten teeth and replace missing teeth. Cosmetic dentistry can significantly impact your overall appearance and self-confidence. It can help people feel more attractive and confident in their smiles and can even improve the health of the teeth and gums. Some of our services include:
Dental crowns are custom-made caps that fit over the visible portion of a tooth. They restore a tooth to its original shape, size, and strength while improving its appearance. Crowns provide a strong, natural-looking solution for tooth damage or decay. They are typically made from Zirconia or Lithium Disilicate. They are often used to protect a damaged tooth from further harm, improve its look, or hold a dental bridge in place. We can also use crowns to cover discolored or misshapen teeth, restore a broken tooth, or cover a dental implant. The crown procedure involves removing a portion of the tooth structure, placing the crown, and cementation the crown in place.
Dental bridges are a type of dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Bridges are typically made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap and a false tooth, or a pontic, in between. The false tooth is held in place by the crowns attached to the adjacent teeth. The pontic is often made from zirconia, or lithium disilicate, and is designed to match the surrounding teeth’ shape, size, and color. In addition to restoring the smile’s appearance, dental bridges help restore the patient’s ability to chew and speak properly. Bridges can also help maintain the face’s shape and the position of the teeth and jaw. A dental bridge may last between five and fifteen years and may require periodic adjustments due to normal wear and tear.
Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure involving applying a tooth-colored composite resin to the surface of a tooth to improve its appearance. The resin is applied to the tooth, sculpted into shape, and then hardened with a special light. The bonding process usually only takes around 30 minutes to complete and can help repair chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth and reshape and lengthen teeth. It can also close the gaps between teeth or make them look more even and symmetrical. Bonding can last up to 10 years but may need to be repaired or redone if the resin becomes stained or wears down.
Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite material, custom-made to fit over the front surfaces of your teeth. This cosmetic dentistry procedure is ideal for people who want to transform their smiles by improving their teeth’ color, shape, size, and overall appearance. Veneers can be used to cover teeth that are discolored, chipped, slightly misaligned, or have gaps between them. The procedure is minimally invasive and generally requires only two visits to the dentist. During the first visit, our team will take an impression of your teeth and shape the veneers to fit them. The veneers will be placed and bonded to the teeth at the second visit. Veneers are very durable and can last for many years with proper care. Most people are thrilled with the results of their veneers and appreciate the dramatic improvement in their smiles.
Dental implants are a modern solution for replacing missing teeth. They are titanium posts surgically implanted into the jawbone to act as artificial tooth roots. Dental implants provide an attractive, natural-looking replacement for missing teeth, restoring your ability to eat and speak properly. The implant is then topped with a porcelain crown that looks and functions like a natural tooth. A qualified dentist, like Dr. Neeley or Dr. Litchfield, performs the procedure and usually requires several visits. It starts with a thorough examination to determine if the patient is a good candidate for the procedure. Once approved, the implant is surgically inserted and allowed to heal and integrate with the surrounding jawbone before the crown is placed. The process usually takes several months, and the results are long-lasting, with proper care and maintenance.
Teeth whitening is a process used to lighten and brighten the appearance of teeth by removing surface stains and discoloration. The process usually involves the application of a bleaching agent containing hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide that helps to break down stains and discolorations on the surface of the teeth. You can do it in our dental office with a professional-grade bleaching agent or at home with custom-made trays. It is important to note that teeth whitening is not a permanent solution, and regular follow-up treatments may be necessary to maintain the desired results. Additionally, some people may experience sensitivity or discomfort during or after the treatment. Therefore, it is essential to consult with Dr. Litchfield or Dr. Neeley before attempting teeth whitening to ensure it is the right option for you.
