A broken tooth, crooked teeth, or teeth that are stained or discolored are all conditions that diminish both your smile and your confidence. Having healthy teeth is essential, but so is enjoying a beautiful smile. Cosmetic dentistry can help you look your best.
When you smile with confidence, it enhances both your personal and professional relationships. When you’re not happy with your smile, you may tend to hide your teeth/mouth and give people the wrong impression.
At Smith Dentalworks, Dr. Atty Smith offers a variety of different cosmetic treatments that are designed to help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted, whether you’re dealing with discolored or broken teeth, or even a missing or failing tooth.
Here are some of the services we offer:
Dental bonding is a quick and effective way to make small repairs to your smile, such as:
The bonding procedure utilizes the same material that we use for dental fillings, and we can typically complete your new smile during only one appointment. Dr. Smith will customize the composite material to match your teeth, so it delivers a flawless appearance.
Dental bonding also tends to be less invasive and more affordable than other cosmetic procedures, making it an excellent option for upgrading your smile.
Porcelain veneers can help eliminate a lot of the same imperfections as bonding, with the difference being that veneers can completely redesign your smile. Think "Hollywood" smile. This is because they can change the shape, size, and shade of your teeth by covering your entire tooth structure with a very thin layer of porcelain.
Dental veneers offer many benefits. They are stain-resistant, so you won't have to worry about discoloration. In addition, veneers are very durable and capable of lasting for many years. You can also brush and floss around them like you usually would, making them easy to take care of. If you have ever dreamt of having a movie star smile, porcelain veneers can make that dream come true.
Dr. Smith loves helping patients achieve the smiles they have always wanted. Schedule a cosmetic evaluation with her to learn more about porcelain veneers.
Invisible braces with Invisalign®️ provide adult patients with an option for straightening their teeth that won't interfere with their daily lives. Aligners are clear and fit snugly, which makes them comfortable to wear as opposed to metal brackets and wires that can poke and irritate your gums and cheeks. Because Invisalign uses clear aligners instead of braces, no one will ever notice that you are straightening your teeth.
Crooked teeth are embarrassing and they can diminish your confidence. However, teeth that overlap or are unevenly spaced also impact your dental health. It is much harder to effectively brush and floss teeth that are not aligned properly, which means you have a higher chance of developing problems like tooth decay and gum disease.
Treatment with Invisalign is convenient, comfortable, and efficient. You'll wear your aligners for around 22 hours each day and change into a new set every two weeks. Dr. Smith will check in with you every few weeks to ensure that treatment is progressing as planned and you can complete most of your aligner changes at home.
Dr. Smith is a certified Invisalign provider and she is happy to share more of the benefits of the treatment during an evaluation to determine if invisible braces are right for you.
Whether it’s the final touch on your smile makeover or the single upgrade your smile needs, teeth whitening can have a significant impact on your smile. It’s a great improvement to make and is affordable. At Smith Dentalworks, we offer a few convenient options for brightening your smile. These plans are designed to fit even the most hectic schedules.
With an in-office whitening treatment, you can achieve amazing results that leave your teeth six to ten shades brighter during only one visit to our dental office. We use a protective barrier designed to prevent your gums or soft tissues from being affected by the high-strength bleaching gel. We then finish with a fluoride treatment designed to reduce or eliminate tooth sensitivity. The process is comfortable, effective, and ideal for patients with a tight schedule.
Another option is a take-home teeth whitening kit. This offers the freedom of brightening your smile based on your own schedule. Since you'll have trays and whitening gel at home you'll be able to touch up your teeth whenever that next big event comes along. Trays are also customized, so they fit your teeth correctly and provide protection against whitening gel leaking.
Having a smile you are proud of makes a big difference in your confidence. Did you know that people perceive those who smile more often as happy, friendly, and approachable? When you can smile with confidence, it helps you to reach your goals.
Cosmetic dentistry also repairs teeth, which benefits your dental health. For example, straightening your teeth makes them easier to take care of. Additionally, restoring a broken tooth with bonding or a porcelain veneer makes it stronger as well as more aesthetically appealing. Correcting bite misalignment can benefit the function of your teeth and the health of your jaw joint.
We would love the opportunity to discuss with you how cosmetic dentistry can make a difference in your smile as well as your dental health.
Before your cosmetic evaluation with Dr. Smith, we encourage you to think about the changes you'd like to make to your teeth. Are you embarrassed about crooked teeth, but you don't like the idea of wearing metal braces? Are chipped or broken teeth affecting your smile? Maybe it's just a brighter smile you'd like to see?
Dr. Smith will discuss your goals for your smile with you during your evaluation. Having a good idea of what you'd like to achieve helps her make the right recommendations for your customized cosmetic treatment. You will leave our office with a clear plan on the best way to reach your dream smile and how you can fit the treatment into your budget.
We look forward to helping you.
