Improve your smile this season
Cosmetic dentistry has become a popular way to give patients the smiles they want.
You don’t have to go through extensive and expensive cosmetic dental procedures to get the smile you want. You also don’t have to be rich and famous to get a smile that’s worthy of the big screen. Cosmetic dentistry in Highland Heights has been giving patients the smiles they crave without breaking the bank. Some procedures are so simple that they don’t even require anesthesia. Here are some of the non- to minimally invasive cosmetic options to give your smile that special something.
While some people are quite satisfied with the subtle results they get from commercial products, there are some smiles that need an extra boost. Whether you’re getting your smile ready for holiday photos or a wedding, sometimes you need a whiter smile fast.
Professional teeth whitening takes as little as 45 minutes to complete. Just by applying a strong bleaching agent and using a laser to activate the gel, we can get your smile up to ten shades whiter in just one visit. Teeth whitening works best on those with yellow stains and will not brighten dental work (e.g. fillings; bridges).
Looking to fix any of these minor dental flaws?
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Short teeth
If so, dental bonding can do the trick. This procedure is simple and doesn’t even require anesthesia. We will use a special composite resin, like we would to fill your tooth, and match it to the rest of your smile. Then we will roughen the tooth’s surface and apply a liquid that will help the resin bond to the tooth.
Next we will apply the resin and then shape, cut and mold it to give you the look you want. Once this is complete, a laser will harden the resin. Bonding takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour per tooth and it’s considered the easiest and least expensive cosmetic dentistry in Highland Heights.
Looking to hide gaps between teeth, minor overlapping, cracks, chips or severe discolorations? If so, these thin porcelain shells will be able to hide all of these problems. Before applying the veneers, we will remove a small amount of your natural tooth’s enamel to make room for the added thickness of the veneers. Then we will use a special cement to apply the veneers to the front of your teeth and use a laser to harden the cement and permanently adhere the veneers.
An important thing to keep in mind is that due to the removal of your tooth’s enamel, veneers are not considered reversible. There are some types of veneers that require no tooth preparation; however, traditional veneers are a permanent cosmetic option.
