When you have issues with the appearance of your smile, then you need cosmetic treatments to provide enhancements. In fact, we can often make major transformations in as little as one appointment. In today’s blog, your Virginia Beach, VA, dentist talks about our approach to cosmetic dentistry.
Your Initial Consultation
To find out if you need cosmetic dentistry, and what treatment options will be most appropriate, you need a cosmetic consultation. During this visit, we will talk to you about what changes you’d like to see for your smile. Our team will also thoroughly exam your smile to assess the cause and severity of your esthetic concerns, so we can create a personalized treatment plan to enhance the beauty of your teeth and gums.
Our approach to cosmetic dentistry includes teeth whitening treatments to brighten the teeth and offer a shining smile, one eight shades brighter in some cases. To limit sensitivity and tackle more severe cases, we could offer an at-home treatment. In our office we will create your plastic trays and then send these home with you, along with a powerful bleaching gel. Treatment is simple. You will fill the trays with gel and wear them daily for about an hour. You do this for a week or two to obtain optimal results! You then keep the trays and any leftover gel for any touches you need in the months to come.
We also have an in-office teeth whitening procedure. This offers results fast, an excellent choice if you need results or a job interview or date. Our team will apply a bleaching gel to the teeth and then activate it with a special light. This could offer a smile several shades brighter in as little as one to two hours.
We could also make significant changes to your teeth with dental bonding. Using the same lifelike composite resin that we employ in our dental fillings, we can mask permanent teeth stains, fill the gaps between the teeth, address minor chips and cracks, and more. The placement only takes one visit, so you can leave with a more attractive smile.
In the same bonding visit, or a separate one, we can address cosmetic concerns with dental contouring. Instead of adding new structure to your teeth, we gently sand and buff away outer structure to improve the beauty of your smile. For example, we can smooth out pits, grooves, and rough patches in the surfaces, dull overly sharp, jagged, or pointed teeth, and address minor chips. We can also reshape malformed or misshapen teeth, including ones that are overly large too!
What if you have excessive gums on display in your smile, which make teeth appear small or uneven? With gum contouring, our team will use dental lasers to gently remove excess tissues and reshape the gum line. You obtain better symmetry and a more attractive smile in only one visit, and you can usually return to normal activities after only a day of rest.
To instantly change the shape and color of your teeth, we can create restorations in the form of thin porcelain shells. We place these on the teeth to offer a smile makeover in only two appointments!
What if your dental misalignment, with crooked, crowded, and overlapping teeth? Instead of relying on metal braces, we could strengthen your smile with a series of clear and custom-made Invisalign aligners. They fit comfortably, are easy to clean, and can be removed before meals or before you brush and floss. They stay nearly invisible, and don’t complicate your daily life like metal orthodontics too. In as little as one year, you or a member of your family could enjoy an even and healthy smile, one they can’t wait to show off to the world.
