Cosmetic Dentistry

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve your appearance. A beautiful, bright, healthy smile can increase self-confidence and overall life satisfaction.

Many regular dental treatments can be cosmetic. Modern tooth-colored fillings are virtually invisible when compared to traditional silver fillings. Tooth-colored crowns or caps are now others options instead of gold or silver. In this section, we will look at some of the best treatments we can use to greatly improve your smile and the way you feel about yourself. Come to our office located in Sherwood, Oregon for an appointment today.

Tooth Whitening
Tooth bleaching, or tooth whitening, has become so popular and widespread that many companies have marketed their own type of whitening products. Although there is some merit to these at-home bleaching kits, having a nationally board-certified dentist perform this procedure is completely different. Since a professional can help abbreviate the whitening process as a whole, it can be completed in only a few short visits, compared to weeks of at-home treatment.

Cosmetic bonding is a common dental procedure that allows us to cover problem areas with a tooth-colored resin. This resin bonds to the surface of your tooth.

Dental Bridges
Bridges are typically attached to two teeth on each side of an open space. This allows us to fill the gap with an artificial tooth which helps improve chewing ability and prevent future jaw problems.

Veneers
Veneers are effective aesthetic cover-ups for damaged or stained teeth. While some veneers can be removable, most are permanent and bond tightly to the teeth that they protect. In addition, technological advancements have improved bonding agents to the extent that it is very common for veneers to remain functional for 10 years or more.

Dental Implants
A dental implant is an artificial tooth that can fill the void of a missing tooth. There are many different types of dental implants, from individual crowns to dentures. A cosmetic dentist can not only ensure the most comfortable replacement but that it will be implanted in the most accurate and aesthetic manner possible.
