Are you overwhelmed by the sheer number of cosmetic dentists in your area? It can be difficult to know what qualities to look for in a good team of professionals. That’s why we’re offering some tips to help narrow down your search results and ensure that you get the high-quality treatment you deserve. That way, you won’t feel like you’re taking a gamble on your smile. We’ve compiled a list of 10 factors to consider on your search to find the best local cosmetic dentist to refresh your unique smile.
Any local pharmacy or grocery store offers rows of whitening toothpastes, mouthwashes, gels, and strips that promise smile brightening results, but these over the counter whitening products are not able to deliver these transformative results. At Green Hills Dental Center, we offer professional teeth whitening options that remove stains, brighten teeth, and give patients the picture perfect smiles they desire. Most patients whiten smiles up to ten shades with professional whitening, and with our help, they experience less dental sensitivity and other adverse effects.
Porcelain veneers are thin sheathes of dental grade porcelain that fit over the fronts of teeth to conceal chips, cracks, stains, and other smile irregularities. Veneers offer patients the opportunity to transform their smiles almost instantly with one minimally invasive procedure. A small amount of tooth enamel is removed allowing the veneer to fit seamlessly into patients’ smiles. Bite impressions are taken and sent to our dental lab where a custom veneer is crafted, and patients receive a temporary veneer to wear while the custom solution is made. Once the final veneer is completed, patients return to exchange their temporary for the custom porcelain veneer.
In most cases, the difference between restoration dentistry and cosmetic dental care is clear, but all-ceramic restorations offer both high quality dental restoration and beautiful cosmetic solutions. Unlike other restorative materials, all-ceramic crowns, inlays, and onlays blend flawlessly into patients’ smiles. Even porcelain fused to metal restorations may develop darkly colored lines over time, but all-ceramic restorations look and feel natural for decades. Additionally, this material is stain resistant allowing patients to continue drinking coffee and wine and consuming other foods and drinks that may stain tooth enamel while maintaining their naturally bright appearance.
Sometimes, patients visit our team unhappy with the appearance of their smiles, but it’s not always the size, shape, or health of teeth that patients are unhappy with. The amount and positioning of gum tissue also affects the way patients’ smiles look. At Green Hills Dental Center, we offer soft-tissue laser dentistry to reshape gums perfecting the appearance of smiles. Laser dentistry allows our team to perform cosmetic gum recontouring with minimal healing time, no sutures, and healthy gums.
Do you have a chipped or discolored tooth? A minor cosmetic flaw can have a big impact on your self-esteem. Now, you can fix certain aesthetic issues using a minimally invasive solution. Direct bonding uses a composite resin material that matches your enamel color to improve the overall color, size, and shape of a tooth. In as little as one visit, you’ll enjoy a drastic improvement in your smile with results that look natural.
