What can cosmetic dentistry do to improve my smile?
Cosmetic dentistry focuses on the appearance of your smile and teeth. While science and technology are involved, it is actually more of an art.
Dr. Karl Jobst at Grand Lake Dental has the eyes and hands of an artist. Whether you desire an entire mouth makeover or just need one tooth repaired, you can trust him to give you perfectly beautiful, natural-looking results.
And if your cosmetic needs also require restorative dentistry, Dr. Jobst has you covered there too. In fact, the two often overlap. For instance, if you need a dental crown for functional purposes, you can choose to upgrade the crown materials for aesthetics. This makes the crown both restorative and cosmetic.
Cosmetic Dentistry Options
At Grand Lake Dental, we have numerous options when it comes to giving you a beautiful smile.
Some of our options include:
- Teeth whitening
- Tooth-colored bonding and fillings
- Porcelain veneers
- Porcelain crowns
At Grand Lake Dental, we offer several options for teeth whitening.
The fastest, most impressive treatment involves in-office teeth whitening with Zoom!®, which is much more effective than anything you can buy at a store. In fact, it can brighter your teeth up to eight shades whiter. And we can achieve those amazing results in one hour.
We also offer several take-home options, including strips, pens, and Zoom! whitening gel with a customized tray.
Cosmetic Dentistry with Composites
While needing a filling for dental decay is restorative dentistry, utilizing composite fillings add a cosmetic touch. Rather than metal fillings that are highly visible, we use tooth-colored composites. This makes your fillings practically invisible and natural-looking.
We also use the same material to hide cosmetic imperfections in a process called bonding. If you have a chipped, irregularly shaped, or unusually small tooth, we can fix it. When completed, you will enjoy a perfectly shaped tooth that matches the color of your natural teeth.
Cosmetic bonding can also fill in gaps between teeth and change the color of a tooth.
While bonding can fix imperfections in a tooth or a few teeth, if you need several teeth fixed, porcelain veneers may be your best option.
Porcelain veneers are color-matched to give you the perfect shade and then fabricated with the shape and size that will give you a natural look based on your face shape. They are super-thin covers attached to the front surface of your teeth.
This treatment is the fastest way to a stunning smile.
Cosmetic Dental Crowns
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that covers the visible part of a tooth. While dental crowns are often used in restorative dentistry, some material options are highly visible and obvious.
At Grand Lake Dental, we offer tooth-colored porcelain crowns. The result is a restoration that matches your natural teeth.
For cosmetic dentistry purposes, a porcelain crown can cover a tooth that is misshapen, severely discolored, cracked, chipped, or broken. It is an excellent option if you have one to three problem teeth.
