Cosmetic dentistry has come a long way. Now, more than ever you have the opportunity to have a dazzling smile quickly and painlessly. Dr. Sandquist knows your smile is one of the first things people notice. Perfecting your smile can give you the confidence to flash it everywhere you go.
COSMETIC DENTAL TREATMENTS CAN:
- Brighten stained or discolored teeth
- repair cracks or breakage
- Fill gaps between teeth
- Correct overcrowding
- Reshape teeth
- Replace missing teeth
- Replace old dental fixtures, such as fillings and crowns
- Porcelain Veneers
- Porcelain Crowns
- Composite Fillings
- Tooth Whitening
Veneers can be used to cover discolored, stained, and chipped teeth, and also to camouflage unsightly gaps or misshapen teeth. They are made from durable porcelain that is bonded directly onto the front of your teeth. Veneers are not permanent and will need eventual replacing, but they will give you a bright, white smile for many years.
Crowns are used to repair teeth that fillings or other types of restorations cannot. They are custom made to match the color and shape of your teeth; adding strength and stability to teeth that may be too weak or decayed to stand on their own. Crowns can last for many years, but eventually will need replacing.
These are tooth-colored fillings that restore teeth that have minor decay, breaks or cracks. The fillings can be made from several types of materials, and you can discuss the best options for you with your dentist. Composite fillings are strong and long-lasting, but as with many dental treatments, they will need to be replaced after many years.
A brighter, whiter smile is one of the easiest ways to boost your confidence. Whitening will bleach the color of your tooth enamel, but not fillings, crowns or other dental work - this is something to keep in mind before embarking on a whitening treatment.
