Cosmetic dentistry is what I call a feel-good experience or a procedure. The difference between cosmetic dentistry and traditional dentistry is cosmetic dentistry, we do it to improve the looks or the way someone feels about their smile, whether it's dark teeth or it's the chipped teeth or some people grind their teeth and they wear their teeth quite a bit. Those kind of things, there's a lot of things we can do to help them feel better.
We offer laser whitening in office. It's about a 35 to 40 minute procedure and we can get your teeth several shades whiter with ... the laser also minimizes the sensitivity of traditional, in-office techniques. We offer cosmetic crowns and veneers made out of porcelain. You know, some people they have crowns on their front teeth that are the old traditional crowns that have metal underneath them.
You know, sometimes you'll see that black line around the gumline. Well, that happens because that's the metal showing under your crown and not everybody wants to see that when they do a big smile, so the kind of materials we have today for cosmetics ... they're more natural like. They're made out of 100% porcelain. They're translucent like natural teeth when you put light on them. They look like natural teeth. They don't look fake.
We can also do even contouring if you don't like the shape of your teeth, we can contour. We work with great orthodontists in the area and we can even get some straightening of your teeth without people even knowing that we're doing it by using techniques like Invisalign. There's a lot of options. We just want to be able to talk to you about them and tell you what they are and we can find what best meet your needs.
