Cedar Walk Dentistry can help you achieve your goal of improving your smile this year by offering a wide selection of general and cosmetic dentistry services. See examples of how the various services offered by our practice can help you change your smile and improve your oral health.
Depending upon how you want to change your smile, you may not need to undergo years and years of orthodontic treatment. There are a number of cosmetic dentistry services that can alter the outward appearance of your smile without requiring dozens of office visits.
Some of the cosmetic dentistry services offered by Cedar Walk Dentistry include:
Veneers or dental crowns are tooth-colored porcelain or composite dental appliances that are fitted over your teeth in an effort to quickly change their appearance or restore their feel or function. They are a popular cosmetic dentistry service because all it takes is one or two office visits to completely change your smile.
Veneers and dental crowns can help improve your smile by doing the following things:
Fill in gaps caused by missing teeth by choosing dental implants. Dental implants are artificial dental prosthesis, such as crowns or dentures, which are supported by small titanium rods that have been surgically placed in the bone of the jaw.
People choose to restore their smile with dental implants for the following reasons:
If extensive changes need to be made to your smile, consider looking into Invisalign. Using a series of clear plastic aligner trays, Invisalign can quickly and effectively shift and move your teeth so that problems such as overcrowding, gaps, and misalignment can be corrected.
Many patients prefer Invisalign over traditional braces for the following reasons:
Whether you are happy with the way your smile looks or you want to make some changes, it is important to maintain your oral health. The best way to maintain your oral health is by scheduling regular, routine dental cleanings.
Dental problems such as gum disease, cavities, and tooth sensitivity are easier to treat when caught early. By scheduling routine dental cleanings every 4 to 6 months, dental problems can be detected in their early stages before they start to cause you any pain/discomfort or require you to undergo extensive expensive dental treatment.
Routine dental cleanings don’t just help you maintain your oral health. They can brighten and whiten your smile without the need for professional teeth whitening. The specialized dental equipment used during professional cleanings can remove minor stains and discoloration from your teeth. At the end of the cleaning, the hygienist or dentist will polish your teeth. For some people, the combination of the removal of stains/discoloration and the use of polish is enough to make their smile appear brighter and whiter.
If, after a professional cleaning, you aren’t satisfied with your smile, your dentist can help provide you with treatment recommendations that will help you get the look you desire. Some treatment recommendations that may be given include professional teeth whitening or veneers.
