Cosmetic dentistry uses advanced technology and artistry to give your mouth a more appealing look. Oral health is still a priority for cosmetic dentists, but they go beyond issues of dental decay, gum health, bone loss and other fundamental dental concerns to focus on restoring beauty and balance to your smile.
Cosmetic dentistry is not about vanity. Sparkling smiles, straight teeth and natural jaw profiles have myriad physical and emotional benefits. A healthy mouth hosts fewer harmful bacteria. Studies have established a clear link between the bacteria characteristic of gum disease and serious medical issues, including heart disease and gastrointestinal problems. Correcting a misaligned bite adds elegance to your facial profile, but also may reduce headaches and muscle strain. And straight teeth are less likely to trap food and decay. A glorious smile is also one that you’re eager to show to the world, fortifying your confidence.
Comprehensive, State-of-the-Art Cosmetic Dentistry Solutions
Cosmetic dentists take a comprehensive approach that uses a variety of innovative techniques. In-office tooth whitening transforms yellow or stained teeth. Porcelain veneers cover flaws and flash the perfect smile to the world. Dental crowns stabilize teeth while increasing their aesthetic appeal. Dental implants, bridges or dentures replace missing teeth. Invisalign orthodontic treatment straightens teeth, restoring balance and beauty.
Gum health is also an integral part of improving the vitality and aesthetic appeal of your entire mouth. Gum recontouring restores your natural gum line and promotes periodontal health. Planing and scaling deeply cleans, reaching bacteria that erode bone and loosen teeth. In the hands of the trusted cosmetic dentistry specialists of the Contos Smile Center, each technique brings you a step closer to a brilliant smile.
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. Our experienced dentists recommend an approach that has been proven in an array of studies and in their own practice. It involves a one-hour office visit, during which your dentist will apply a hydrogen peroxide gel to your teeth and use a special light to enhance the product’s effectiveness. The gel is reapplied every 15 minutes. Your dazzling new smile can be up to eight shades lighter.
Customizable Cosmetic Dental Procedures
Cosmetic procedures are highly customized, based on a patient’s current oral health, the number of complications or conditions present, and the patient’s own vision for the perfect smile. Some procedures, such as an orthodontic treatment, may take months. Others require only a quick office visit. There are many cosmetic options available, and our skilled dental professionals are happy to help you choose the procedures that best fit your lifestyle and expectations. By sharing your dreams for a glorious new smile with your dentist, and reviewing our many before-and-after pictures, you can benefit from techniques that will transform your smile, your image, and your enjoyment of life.
