Cosmetic dentistry is an oral health subspecialty that uses whitening treatments, dental restorations, and orthodontics to improve the appearance of your teeth, gums, and smile. Most cosmetic treatments aren’t medically necessary, but they can reduce your risk of certain issues, like gum recession and tooth loss.
At Advance Dental, the team offers various cosmetic dentistry services, including:
A crown is a cap that your Advance Dental provider bonds over a damaged or severely decaying tooth. At Advance Dental, there’s a CEREC® milling machine on-site, so getting a crown only takes one appointment.
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that your Advance Dental provider bonds to the front of your permanent teeth. The team creates veneers in-house, so preparation and application are quick and easy.
If you’ve lost a single tooth to extractions or trauma, Advance Dental might recommend a bridge. A bridge has an artificial tooth that fills the gap in your smile. It restores your biting and chewing abilities and prevents your surrounding teeth from shifting.
Dentures replace your teeth and the surrounding tissues. They have artificial teeth, gums made of acrylic or plastic, and a metal base or a wireframe. The team might recommend partial dentures or complete dentures, depending on how many permanent teeth you’re missing.
Teeth whitening uses hydrogen peroxide (or other similar solutions) to remove stains from the surfaces of your teeth. Though whitening treatment isn’t permanent, the results typically last 4-6 months* and sometimes longer.
Clear aligners are a type of orthodontic treatment. At Advance Dental, the team uses SureSmile® clear aligners. The aligners fit over your teeth, and you wear them for 20-22 hours each day, only removing them to brush and floss or eat.
The type of cosmetic dentistry that will benefit you depends on various things, including your budget and treatment goals. After an oral exam and a discussion of what you like and dislike about your smile, the team at Advance Dental develops a custom care plan.
