Cosmetic dentistry has become increasingly popular in recent years due to advancements in technology, allowing for faster and more efficient ways to achieve a brighter smile. Our approach involves starting with the most conservative treatment option and personalizing a plan based on each patient’s unique oral health and goals.
Designing the perfect smile for you is a lot like painting a picture or sculpting a statue. The process is as much an art as a science. Your individual facial features and bone structure determine how we approach your smile design. One way we work with patients to design their smile is by initially taking a digital scan on our Primescan that is projected on a computer screen to discuss in detail the changes patients are wanting. Once the preview is there, we can determine which procedures will realistically get them their perfect smile. Smile design is one of the most impactful and rewarding experiences for both the patient and the dentist. Through a collaborative process we can create a smile makeover plan perfect for you.
Dental veneers can solve many cosmetic dental issues. Veneers are thin porcelain shells that overlay the front of the teeth and are custom-made to match your smile, cover up any imperfections that are causing concern, and make your smile appear more symmetrical and balanced. Veneers can be used to fix single teeth or can be used to rejuvenate your entire smile.
Veneers are long-lasting, stain-resistant and natural-looking. Another benefit of veneers is their capability to improve the color and shape of a tooth or teeth with minimal adjustments to the tooth structure.
When you decide on veneers, we will discuss your ideal outcome at the first visit, performing a full examination and making sure you are a good candidate. We’ll also go over what you can expect going forward.
When the veneer process begins, we start with a wax up so you can see what the final smile would look like before we even start. Once the wax up is approved by you, we gently prepare the tooth, make a scan of the teeth preparation & the bite, and place a temporary veneer while the veneers are being made at the lab. Once the veneers have been processed, we always do a try in to make sure our patients will love their new smile.
Teeth whitening is an easy way to improve your appearance and brighten your entire face. Stubborn stains that don’t respond to regular brushing or flossing can be penetrated by professional teeth whitening systems. As well as take home bleaching trays, Comprehensive Family Dental offers a high-potency teeth whitening solution called KöR®.
If you have ever been disappointed with over-the-counter whitening strips that promised great results, but didn’t deliver, you will love KöR. According to KöR, intrinsic tooth color is a result of large natural pigment and stain molecules trapped within the microstructure of teeth. The larger these molecules are, the more colored molecules they contain, and the darker the teeth appear. The KöR whitening system penetrates through a proprietary KöR Dual-Activated, Tri-Barrel™ Hydremide® Peroxide formulation and delivery system that can get your teeth their brightest white.
Tooth-colored fillings are a simple procedure that can help fix unsightly tooth issues. If your tooth or teeth are chipped, gapped, or uneven, bonding can often repair these issues in a single visit.
The composite process involves resurfacing and preparation of the tooth, color matching, and application of the composite resin, which is formed into the shape that looks most natural. Once the composite resin hardens, your procedure is complete!
With proper care, tooth-colored fillings can last up to ten years or even longer–you’re going to love your new smile!
