Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

How does teeth whitening work?

If you’ve noticed your smile has lost some of its sparkle, there are many cosmetic dentistry treatments that can help. 

Food and beverages can stain your teeth, and the aging process can make teeth appear yellowed. Professional whitening can give you a bright, healthy-looking smile in a short period of time.

In-office whitening uses a professional-strength solution to blast apart stains. Some systems incorporate a special light that activates the whitening process.

At-home whitening uses custom-fitted trays to hold a special whitening gel against the surface of your teeth. This approach takes longer than in-office whitening but allows you to control your brightness and perform touch-ups at home.

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are incredibly thin “shells” made from porcelain that are secured directly over the surface of your natural tooth tissue. They can transform the look of your smile and address issues like discoloration, chips, cracks, and irregularities in shape or size of teeth. 

It takes a few visits to complete the dental veneer process, but the results are well worth the wait. You can expect to get more than 10 years from your new veneers, after which they can be replaced with a new set of custom veneers created just for you.

What are some other popular cosmetic dentistry treatment options?

Many different treatments can improve the look of your smile. Dental bonding works by covering the visible surfaces of your teeth with a special tooth-colored composite resin and can treat issues like cracked, chipped, discolored, or poorly aligned teeth.

Contouring and reshaping can smooth down chipped or rough edges, create a more uniform curve in your smile, or alter your gum tissue to make your teeth appear longer. This is a highly individualized cosmetic dentistry treatment that makes the most of your smile without removing excessive natural tissue.

If you have multiple concerns about the appearance of your smile, a full smile design might be a great fit. This approach uses a combination of individual cosmetic dentistry treatments to create a gorgeous, natural looking smile that aligns with your overall facial contouring.
