If we could tell our neighbors in Fishers, Indiana one thing about the cosmetic dentistry we offer, it would be how simple and transforming cosmetic dentistry can be for the person who doesn’t
like their smile. We have so many tools at our disposal for offering smile makeovers that literally change our patients’ lives.
Sometimes, when I am out in the community, I see people who cover their mouths when they smile or laugh because they don’t want to reveal their teeth. Some people even try to keep their mouths as closed as possible when they eat or talk. It’s painful to see these people struggle. I know that I have the skills to offer a beautiful new smile to nearly every one of these people.
Here are the cosmetic dentistry tools we have available.
Dull, dingy or stained teeth can result from aging, drinking dark beverages like coffee, tea or wine, and other causes. We have two different ways we help our patients achieve brighter smiles. Our in-office and at-home whitening services both get excellent results. The choice simply depends on whether or not our patient is in a hurry or prefers to carry out treatment at home.
Veneers are thin porcelain shells permanently bonded to the front of your teeth. In a very short time, you can correct such problems as deep staining that would not respond to whitening, uneven teeth shapes or lengths and gaps between the teeth. There is an art to designing the right veneers for you so they complement your appearance and even your coloring. We take great pride in helping our patients achieve the smiles of their dreams with these veneers of fine and very strong porcelain.
Tooth bonding refers to the use of tooth-colored composite material that bonds very tightly with your natural tooth material. For isolated corrections, tooth bonding is the perfect solution. This
material is mixed to exactly match your natural tooth color and then is used to fill in spaces or repair breaks. It can even be used to lengthen teeth so a patient’s smile has a more uniform shape. Tooth bonding can be used to cover one or more teeth that have become badly discolored.
While crowns are often used to protect a weakened tooth, they also serve an important purpose in cosmetic dentistry. If a person has badly damaged one or more teeth, crowns restore the
appearance of that person’s smile. They will also enable the patient to retain those teeth which is our goal whenever possible.
Invisalign and Clear Correct
These systems of correcting the alignment of the teeth utilize clear acrylic aligners that are fit over the teeth and are worn 22 or more hours a day. To your friends and family, they are nearly invisible. In fact, unless you tell them, they may never know you are receiving treatment to align your teeth. Gently, day by day, they ease teeth into a more ideal position. Correcting the alignment of your teeth is beneficial to your health as well as your appearance. When your teeth are crooked, it is so much harder to clean them properly. This can lead to gum disease which can eventually lead to the loss of teeth. The sooner your teeth are well aligned, the better.
When a patient’s teeth can’t be saved, we are pleased to provide them with comfortable, aesthetic dentures. The science of making dentures has advanced considerably in recent years and our patients benefit from these improvements. If you anticipate needing dentures but are concerned about comfort and functionality, please consult with us and let us put your mind at ease.
For every cosmetic dentistry patient that comes to us from Fishers, Indiana or surrounding communities, we will offer not only an improvement in appearance but also an improvement in health. If there are dental or oral situations that need to be addressed before cosmetic improvement are done, we will let you know. We are dedicated to your overall health and happiness with your smile. From Fishers, Carmel, Geist, Noblesville and other communities, we hope you will let us help you achieve a smile that makes you happy every time you flash it to your friends and family.
