Cosmetic dentistry refers to procedures that are designed to improve the health and beauty of your smile. Our team offers an array of options to address discoloration and other common issues. In today’s blog, your Rochester, MN, dentist talks about improving smiles with cosmetic dentistry.
Your Initial Consultation
First, we will want to meet with you and talk about your hopes for your smile. We will conduct a cosmetic consultation, during which we will examine your smile with digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, so we can assess the cause and severity of your esthetic concerns. From there, we will create a personalized treatment plan to tackle these concerns.
If you have stained teeth, then we can remove them with a professional teeth whitening treatment. Our team will first create a set of plastic trays, custom-made to fit comfortably. We then send these home with you, along with a powerful bleaching gel. At home, you simply add the gel to the trays and wear them for the amount of time each day that we specify. After one to two weeks, you could have smiles several shades brighter! You then keep the trays and leftover gel for touches down the road.
Porcelain veneers are very thin restorations that we apply to the front of the teeth, instantly reshaping the teeth and masking multiple cosmetic concerns at once. Each one is custom-made to ensure a lifelike appearance and that they blend with your smile. They also preserve your bite balance too. We could use veneers to mask teeth stains, close gaps between teeth, lengthen worn down teeth, and even repair minor chips and cracks. Our team can correct misshapen teeth, and also correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you can obtain a straighter looking smile without the need for braces or aligners.
If you have misalignment, then we could also offer a cosmetic approach that forgoes metal brackets and wires. Instead, our team will employ a series of plastic aligners, custom-made for your smile and clear in appearance. Each set is worn for two weeks, 20 to 22 hours per day, and gently shifts the teeth closer and closer to their optimal positions. Results take about a year, and they’re easy to use and clean.
Same-Day Dental Crowns
Our team can also create and place new crowns in one visit. Not only that, but we use materials that ensure a lifelike appearance.
