A perfect smile isn’t necessarily an exact science and there’s more to having a healthy smile than just straight, white teeth with the help of cosmetic dentistry. Pinpointing the root cause of your dental concerns whether they are chips, cracks, or discolorations in the teeth before they turn into failing, missing or decayed teeth is a great way to maintain your oral health. Dr. Vakil can address your dental concerns through restoration dentistry to stop any further damage from occurring and pair it with customized cosmetic dentistry treatments for a more streamlined treatment plan that’s more convenient with less trips to the dentist. When crafting a smile that includes aesthetically pleasing results paired with custom designs from restoration dentistry, Dr. Vakil considers facial aesthetics to ensure your treatment plan is not only aesthetically driven, but healthy and functional.
In short, porcelain veneers are thin shells that cover the front of the tooth that show when you smile and have become increasingly popular when it comes to cosmetic dentistry. Once a small portion of your enamel has been removed, your veneers will fit, feel and look completely natural and restore the proper size, shape and alignment of your natural teeth. With minimal maintenance and maximum longevity, veneers can last for a lifetime.
Dental crowns are ceramic caps for your teeth that conceal cosmetic and functional damage through restoration dentistry. While also being durable and crack-resistant, dental crowns are an excellent choice for molars and front teeth and may be suffering from a crack. A tooth crown can generally last 15 years or more when cared for properly.
If you have one or more missing teeth, dental bridges serve as a permanent replacement. Made up of two or more custom dental crowns fused together, dental bridges effectively restore function and aesthetically pleasing results to your smile. With a dental bridge, remaining teeth can also be kept from shifting out of place and altering your bite.
Arguably one of the top treatments in cosmetic dentistry is teeth whitening. A perly-white smile is not only beautiful to look at, but serves as a confidence boost when showing off your smile. Zoom!®Whitening System is a fast, safe and effective teeth whitening system that treats all teeth simultaneously with reduced sensitivity, faster treatment times and longer lasting results.
If your smile is suffering from crowded or spaced teeth or a misaligned bite, talking with Dr. Vakil about traditional braces or Invisalign® may be your best option to make those corrections. We understand that metal bracket-and-wire systems may seem outdated, but cosmetic dentistry has come a long way with creating clear aligners that correct your dental concerns discreetly without anyone knowing.
