You use general dentistry for basic checkups and regular semiannual office visits. At these appointments, the dentist will examine your teeth and gums, clean and polish your teeth, and consult you on ways to improve your oral health. The dentist can also be your first resource when you break a tooth or even knock one…
Minimally Invasive Solutions and Aesthetic Dentistry
As an aesthetic dentistry office, we look for ways to restore our patients' damaged teeth and enhance their smile using minimally invasive methods. Understanding that everything in the body works together and that each portion of your tooth has an important role to play, we work to preserve as much of your natural tooth structure as possible.
Our approach to dental care and the preservation of teeth is what makes us different from a traditional cosmetic dentist.
Dental Restorations from an Aesthetic Dentistry Office
To understand the differences between our office and another dentist here is an example for you to consider. If there is a cracked tooth, you will need to restore it as quickly as possible. There are several ways to do so, including dental bonding and placing a dental crown.
In our office, we will attempt to correct the damage with the least invasive option first. In this scenario, that would be dental bonding, an inlay or an onlay, depending on the extent of the damage. With dental bonding, we will apply a tooth-colored bonding material to the surface of the tooth, shape it and then harden it.
Keep As Much of The Tooth As Possible
The natural tooth remains intact which means that the process is reversible. With dental crowns, on the other hand, the process is permanent. In order to place a crown, a portion of the enamel must be removed from all sides of the tooth. Since a crown is a cap, this must happen first in order for it to fit securely.
The challenge is that removing enamel is permanent. Once done, you cannot reverse the procedure and the tooth will always require a crown for protection. In this way, the restoration permanently alters the tooth. If necessary, we will provide patients with dental crowns or other permanent solutions but our primary goal is preservation at the same time as restoration.
Aesthetic Dentistry Looks Amazing
Even though we look to preserve the tooth structure and use minimally invasive solutions, we can still perform smile makeovers, replace missing teeth, and restore damaged ones. Our solutions look natural because this is the best way to improve a smile. There is no need to look as though you had a lot of dental work done.
This can appear fake or manufactured. Instead, we will give your smile a beautiful appearance that looks as though you were simply blessed with a stunning smile. Our patients appreciate the difference it makes and how much better they feel as a result.
Some of our dental solutions include:
- Dental bonding
- Dental veneers
- Dental crowns
- Dental implants crowns
- Teeth whitening
