What is cosmetic dentistry?
You want a healthy smile, but you want your teeth to look good, too. Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of oral health care focused on improving the aesthetic appearance of your smile. Cosmetic dentistry can address a number of cosmetic problems including yellow teeth, chipped or cracked teeth, and missing teeth.
What types of cosmetic dentistry do you offer?
The team at Rene Horvielleur, DDS, offers a variety of cosmetic dentistry services including:
Teeth whitening is a safe, effective cosmetic dentistry technique that can make your smile up to 8 shades whiter in just one session. The team offers both in-office and take-home whitening treatments designed to eradicate brown, yellow, and gray teeth. Just keep in mind that your individual results may vary.
Dental veneers are wafer-thin pieces of porcelain or composite resin affixed to your permanent teeth. Veneers are incredibly versatile and can correct cosmetic imperfections like gaps between teeth, misshapen teeth, and discolored teeth.
If you lose one or more permanent teeth, dental implants can restore your smile and protect the health of your jawbone. Dental implants are metal tooth roots that are implanted into your jawbone. An abutment attaches to the implant, which holds a pontic or prosthetic tooth replacement. Dental implants are incredibly sturdy and can last a lifetime with proper care.
Invisalign is an FDA-approved method of orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear aligners to address issues like crossbite, overbite, and underbite. Invisalign is discrete and fits snugly over the surface of your teeth. In addition, you can remove your aligners at any time. If you want a straighter smile, but hate the idea of traditional braces, Invisalign aligners can help.
Who is a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry?
Anyone who is unhappy with the physical appearance of their teeth or smile can benefit from cosmetic dentistry.
Following a one-on-one consultation, oral exam, and discussion of your goals for treatment, your provider develops a treatment plan that aligns with your individual goals.
