Bright white, gleaming smiles can be found all over television and magazines, but is there any way for the average person to obtain a beautiful smile? Absolutely! Cosmetic dentistry can be used to fix dental issues and give you the gleaming, beautiful smile you deserve.
Cosmetic dentistry will help with a variety of dental problems. The first step to a great smile is a consultation with a dentist who will evaluate your dental needs, and explain your options. Serene Smiles of Fredericksburg will do a thorough exam, and provide you an informative and easy-to-understand consultation to discuss your options.
Teeth whitening is one of the most common forms of cosmetic dentistry. Discoloration on the teeth can come from many things, such as food (wine, coffee, blueberries), some medications, or smoking. Whitening is a pain free procedure that removes stains and returns tooth enamel to a bright white. Depending on the severity of the staining, the dentist may recommend one procedure or several procedures to obtain the look you want.
For chipped, cracked, or decayed teeth, bonding may be helpful. This procedure uses tooth colored material which is hardened to the tooth with a special light, then polished. This procedure can last for many years, and is helpful for repairing many smile issues.
Veneers are thin, porcelain laminates that are bonded directly to the teeth. They are a great option for changing the shape of teeth, closing gaps, or changing the color of teeth that aren’t responding to traditional teeth whitening methods.
Dental implants are prosthetic implants for missing teeth. This can be a great solution for missing teeth, or for teeth that need to be removed.
Braces & Invisalign
The process of straightening teeth typically happens during adolescence, although some adults elect to straighten their teeth as well. Braces typically involve metal wires attached to teeth via metal posts. Invisalign treatments involve clear plastic mouth guards that gradually straighten the teeth.
Other options are available to address a variety of dental needs. These can include gum lifts, bite reclamation, inlays and onlays, tooth reshaping, and more.
