While the overall health of the teeth and mouth are a large priority, we also understand that having a beautiful smile is a huge priority for our patients. Cosmetically enhancing your smile has the added bonus of making patients smile even more, which actually leads the brain to release additional dopamine and serotonin which greatly boosts the mood.
Here are some of the many cosmetic dentistry treatments available at Gentle Family Dentistry:
- Whitening – A bright white smile just can’t be beaten. Teeth can discolor for many reasons, including age, the food we eat, the beverages we drink, trauma and bad habits like smoking. An in-office whitening treatment is the best way to safely whiten your teeth in just one session.
- Veneers/Lumineers – For a total tooth makeover, veneers are a common procedure. Made from thin porcelain shells, veneers are attached to the teeth in the smile window to completely transform the appearance of the tooth. While veneers are permanently attached, Lumineers are an alternative option that can be removed.
- Dental Crowns – While generally used for restorative treatments, dental crowns are also an ideal cosmetic option. Teeth, like fingerprints, are unique for each person, which can sometimes cause teeth to be asymmetrical and misshapen. Crowns can transform the shape of a tooth to make it match the rest of the teeth in the mouth.
- Bridges – When a tooth or a few teeth next to one another are missing, many negative side effects can occur. A dental bridge is a great way to halt those negative effects, such as teeth spreading, and restores the smile where the teeth were missing.
