If you have teeth that are worn, discolored, misshapen, misaligned, or missing you might be a candidate for cosmetic dentistry. People choose cosmetic dentistry for different reasons.
Some people have generally healthy teeth and choose to change their smile to a dazzling appearance.
Others have dental problems and need to restore their teeth to health and full, comfortable function. During their restoration (makeover) process, we create a youthful, beautiful smile.
Regardless of your reasons, doesn’t it make sense to get the best and most natural result possible? We believe that everyone deserves to have a dazzling smile and a clean, healthy mouth regardless of your reasons. Our office specializes in a multitude of cosmetic and esthetic dentistry procedures that can help give you the perfect, even teeth you’ve always wanted. Whether you are looking to subtly enhance your smile or are in need of more extensive work, we can help you to look and feel more beautiful and confidant.
Cosmetic Versus Esthetic Dentistry
The term “cosmetic” makes us think of changing something to make it more beautiful. You may associate the word “cosmetic” with doing something for the sake of appearance. The term “esthetic” carries with it the connotation of beauty taken to a higher art form. You may associate the word “esthetic” with appreciation for the artfulness of the appearance and the appearance being “in good taste.”
We believe every dental restoration should look like a tooth. It should be esthetic and look natural. But it also has to be able to stand up to the forces of your bite over time. Form follows function, and properly functioning teeth have a specific shape for a reason. We seek to balance the esthetic results of your smile with predictable functional and healthy outcomes that last many years. We also seek to balance the color. Matching the color of your restorations to your natural teeth is important so your restorations don’t stand out when you smile. We can bleach your teeth to a lighter, brighter, more youthful shade before match your restorations to your new natural color.
