Cosmetic dentistry uses oral restorations, teeth whitening treatments, and orthodontic appliances to improve the physical appearance of your smile.
Many people consider cosmetic treatments elective, but some provide the added benefit of improved oral health. For example, by replacing a missing tooth with a bridge or dental implant, you can prevent your remaining, healthy teeth from shifting out of position.
At Gables Family Dental, the team offers various cosmetic services, including:
Crowns are synthetic coverings that protect a decaying or damaged tooth. When bonded to the top of a tooth, a crown restores its shape, size, and appearance while reducing the risk of other, more serious issues.
Bridges are dental restorations that “bridge” a gap in your smile. Specifically, they fill the space where your tooth used to be with a pontic. Bridges prevent your remaining teeth from moving out of position and encourage optimal oral health.
Dental implants are screw-like posts that your Gables Family Dental provider inserts into your jaw during an outpatient procedure. The posts integrate with your natural bone and provide a foundation for restorations like a bridge, implant-retained dentures, or crowns.
Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that uses a series of removable oral aligners to improve the position of your teeth and jaw. Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible and provide stunning results within 12-18 months.*
Teeth whitening uses solutions like hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide to remove stains from the surface of your teeth. The team at Gables Family Dentistry offers both in-office teeth whitening and take-home teeth whitening trays.
Teeth bonding uses a composite resin material to repair minor damage to your tooth enamel, like chips, cracks, or pitting. The team uses tooth-colored bonding, so the work looks natural and blends in with your smile.
If you have several cosmetic issues you’d like to address, the team might recommend a complete smile makeover. A smile makeover uses several different treatments to transform the aesthetic appearance of your smile.
The cost of cosmetic dentistry depends on several factors, including your goals and the approach used. Following a comprehensive oral exam and a review of your dental health history, the team can provide you with an estimate.
