Cosmetic dentistry is any procedure that you undergo to improve the appearance of your teeth and smile. Patients are often more self-conscious about minor dental cosmetic issues than they may realize. If you find yourself reluctant to smile or subconsciously bringing your hand to your mouth when you do smile, perhaps it’s time to consider a cosmetic dentistry procedure at West Broward Dental Associates. Some of our most popular offerings include teeth whitening, Invisalign, porcelain crowns and veneers.
Professional Teeth Whitening
The habits of everyday life take a toll on our teeth, often leaving them a dull yellow or gray color in spite of excellent oral hygiene habits. Drinking coffee or wine, smoking tobacco products, eating dark-colored foods, and even taking certain medications all increase the risk of permanent staining. Professional teeth whitening helps to increase the brightness of your teeth through the use of a strong bleaching agent.
Having your teeth whitened at our Margate dental office is a two-step process. First, you need to come in so we can take an impression of your teeth. This impression allows us to customize a tray for your top and bottom rows of teeth. When the trays come back from our laboratory, we will contact you to come in for another appointment. We will instruct you on how to put the whitening gel in the trays for at-home use as well as how long you should wear them. Most patients notice that their teeth are several times brighter within a few days. The results typically last for several months and the process can be repeated as often as you like.
Porcelain Crowns and Veneers
If you have a cosmetic imperfections, such as a stained, misaligned, cracked, or chipped teeth, you can disguise the problem with porcelain crowns and veneers. This is also a good option when you have a large space between teeth that you want to conceal without having to undergo orthodontic treatment.
A porcelain veneer is an extremely thin piece of a ceramic shell that we bond to the front of your tooth. We take special care to match the veneer to the shade and shape of your teeth so no one can tell that you have had a cosmetic dentistry procedure completed.
A porcelain crown is also made of ceramic, but is usually needed when there is more extensive damage to the tooth and covers the entire tooth for protection.
Cosmetic crowns and veneers can last more than a decade as long as you don’t subject them to unnecessary risks and keep up with your normal oral healthcare routine.
Invisalign can help reverse crowded and spaced teeth in a short time! It is a series of removable clear aligners used to shift and move teeth instead of having to wear metal braces. This allows you to maintain excellent oral hygiene while eating the foods you love without having to worry about whats trapped around metal wires!
