The most important benefit of cosmetic dentistry is that it makes you feel confident about your appearance. If you suffer from chipped, misshapen, stained, or otherwise imperfect teeth, you may feel embarrassed when smiling, laughing, or even eating among others.
At Dogwood Family Dental, Dr. Taylor is here to help. Explore this and the other benefits of cosmetic dentistry by scheduling an appointment at our office now.
In-office whitening offers immediate results and is ideal for special occasions. In this treatment, Dr. Taylor will apply a powerful whitener to your teeth and activate it using a UV light to maximize its performance. In less than an hour, you’ll have a much brighter smile.
Take-home whitening is a bit different. Dr. Taylor will take molds of your teeth and create a set of custom-fitted whitening trays. Then, you’ll use these trays along with a set of whitening products and instructions from Dogwood Family Dental to whiten your teeth at home. You can get professional-grade results while spending less time in the dentist’s chair!
Dental bonding uses dental resin to restore and reshape your smile. In this process, Dr. Taylor will apply a special type of resin directly to your tooth, then use special tools to reshape it and correct imperfections like chips, misshapen teeth, stains, and more. The procedure is fast, non-invasive, and ideal if you want cosmetic care on a tight budget.
Enameloplasty, also called “shaping and contouring” is often done with dental bonding. This treatment uses a special tool to gently remove a thin layer of material from one or more teeth. This can be used to correct pointed teeth, reshape uneven or misshapen teeth, and improve the overall appearance and evenness of your smile.
If you don’t like your smile for any reason, you’re likely a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Taylor can discuss your issues with your smile in detail and help you choose the right treatment for your needs.
You must have healthy teeth and gums to get cosmetic dentistry treatment. If your gums and teeth are not healthy, Dr. Taylor can treat you to restore your oral health before you get cosmetic treatment at Dogwood Family Dental.
Your teeth must also be relatively straight to get cosmetic dentistry. If you have major issues with your bite or the position of your teeth, you may need to get braces or Invisalign before you can get cosmetic care.
