Just a few decades ago, cosmetic dentistry was only in the early stages of offering enhancements to dental patients. Before than, braces and crowns were about the only choices for those with less-than-perfect smiles. But now there’s a wide array of improvements possible, many of which are quick and simple to administer.
What makes cosmetic dentistry a joy to offer our patients is the way a person who never liked her (or his!) smile can now have the beautiful new smile she always wished for. Here’s some of the procedures we offer to help you achieve that exquisite smile.
INVISALIGN AND CLEAR CORRECT
These two systems straighten your teeth just like braces, but you don’t have to put up with a mouthful of metal. Both systems are practically invisible and can be removed each day to enable you to clean your teeth. And they are not just restricted to patients in their teens. No matter what your age, ask us if you are a good candidate for this type of straightening.
BONDING AND VENEERS
These are quick solutions for cracked or chipped teeth. With bonding, tooth-colored composite material is used to correct chips or minor irregularities. A veneer is a thin shell of tooth-like material that is cemented to the front surface of your teeth. Discolored, damaged or irregularly-spaced teeth can be quickly corrected with veneers.
If age, food, medications or health conditions have dulled your smile, whitening may be a good solution for you. A quick evaluation will tell us if your teeth will respond to our in-office or at-home whitening solutions.
If you have small imperfections of shape or spacing, enamel shaping might be a good solution. With a little gentle shaping and polishing, we can quickly improve the evenness of your smile.
Of course, crowns, bridges and dental implants offer solutions for seriously broken or missing teeth. If you’re in the Fishers, Indiana area, contact us right away so we can help you show your friends and coworkers your beautiful new smile!
