Cosmetic dentistry uses whitening treatments, restorations, and orthodontics to make your smile more aesthetically pleasing.
Most cosmetic procedures are elective, but some provide the added benefit of improved oral health. For example, by replacing an extracted tooth with a bridge or a dental implant, you can reduce the risk of gum recession and bone loss.
At Advanced Oral Dynamics, the team offers a wide range of cosmetic dentistry services, including:
Dental implants replace your natural tooth roots. At Advanced Oral Dynamics, the team offers traditional dental implants and All-on-4® implants. With routine checkups and preventive care, dental implants often last a lifetime*.
Orthodontics uses custom oral appliances –– like Invisalign®, CandidPro®, or metal braces –– to improve the alignment of your teeth or jaw. At Advanced Oral Dynamics, the team uses orthodontics to fix various issues, including crooked teeth, crowding, and bite abnormalities.
Teeth whitening removes stains from your teeth. At Advanced Oral Dynamics, the team offers in-office teeth whitening with the Philips Zoom!® system and take-home teeth whitening trays.
A crown is a synthetic cap that covers a damaged or decaying tooth. Once bonded in place, a crown restores your tooth to its near-original size, strength, and appearance. Crowns make biting and chewing easier and last for 12-15 years* on average.
If you lose a single permanent tooth, your dentist might recommend a bridge. A bridge is a restoration that fills a space where a tooth used to be. Your dentist uses two crowns or a metal framework to prevent your bridge from moving out of position.
If you’re missing some or all of your permanent teeth, but don’t have enough bone to support dental implants and don’t qualify for bone grafting, Advanced Oral Dynamics might recommend dentures. Dentures are removable oral prosthetics that replace your teeth and surrounding tissues.
If you have more than one cosmetic imperfection, your dentist might recommend a smile makeover. A smile makeover combines two or more cosmetic procedures to improve the appearance of your smile as well as your oral health.
Veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored material (like porcelain) that your dentist bonds to the front of your teeth. Veneers help cover up minor imperfections, like stained, crooked, or unusually shaped teeth.
Only a qualified dentist can determine the type of cosmetic dentistry that can most benefit you. After a review of your dental records and a discussion of your goals, the team at Advanced Oral Dynamics can make recommendations that align with your budget and needs.
