Cosmetic Dentistry Services
Improve Your Teeth and Your Smile!
Are you unhappy with your smile? Our dentists can help correct imperfections, repair damage, and restore your teeth to their natural beauty. Our cosmetic dental services include whitening, crowns, bridges, dentures and implants. Cosmetic dentistry offers you the opportunity to make positive changes to your teeth and to your smile.
When a cavity occurs, the decay must be removed. A filling replaces the section of a tooth that has been damaged due to decay. There are two types of fillings that can be used to repair and fill a cavity: (1) amalgam (silver fillings) and (2) “white” or tooth-colored composite fillings. We prefer “white” or tooth-colored composite fillings because they “bond” to the tooth structure and help strengthen the decay-weakened tooth. In addition, composite fillings are typically less sensitive to temperature.
Teeth Whitening - Achieve a Sparkling Smile
Transform your teeth from their yellowing stage back to a younger, brighter appearance!
As our bodies age, our teeth naturally darken and become discolored. You can carefully and effectively get that dazzling white smile you’ve wished for through the personalized tooth whitening that we provide at our dentist office in Hixson. We offer teeth whitening options to match your needs!
We utilize veneers that are wafer-thin, custom-made shells that cover the surface of your tooth to improve its appearance. These veneers are made of tooth-colored materials and closely mimic a natural-tooth look. They resist stains very well and require just a small amount of tooth removal.
There are many benefits to veneer placement. Those benefits include:
- The whitening of discolored teeth
- The restoration of worn down teeth
- The mending of chipped and broken teeth
- The ability of aligning your uneven and irregularly shaped teeth
- The filling of the apparent gaps between your teeth
The process of placing veneers generally takes two visits to our dental practice. The first visit will be your diagnosis and treatment planning stage. X-rays will be taken and your dentist will map out a plan so you understand how the treatment works and what the results will be.
The second visit will be the preparation of the tooth. This will include your dentist shaping your tooth to allow room for the veneer. Once the tooth is properly shaped, impressions will be made of your tooth and will be sent to the dental lab where your veneer will be custom made for you.
Your last visit will involve the bonding of the veneer to the tooth. Your dentist will check the fit and color of the veneer, and if it is perfect for you and your smile, it will be bonded into place.
