Do you wish you had a more dazzling smile? At Sandy Lake Dental & Orthodontics, we’re happy to offer custom cosmetic dentistry. Beginning with a special consultation, we’ll discuss your goals and concerns before creating a plan to help you achieve the results you’ve dreamed of. With our wide range of services, we can provide the comprehensive treatment you’re looking for.
Your treatment plan may include one or more of the following:
Porcelain veneers are extremely thin ceramic coverings that are bonded to the front teeth to cover stains, misalignment, spaces, and other common imperfections. They are one of the most comprehensive cosmetic treatments available and can completely transform a smile on their own. A complete veneers treatment normally requires just two to three visits, but it can yield beautiful results that will last for years.
To get porcelain veneers, you’ll first need to schedule a consultation with Sandy Lake Dental & Orthodontics. This will give you the chance to describe what you would like to change about your smile to your doctor. Once that is decided, they’ll remove a tiny portion of your enamel (about 2mm) to create room for the veneers, take an impression of your teeth, and send it to a dental lab. You’ll be fitted with a temporary set of veneers to “test drive” your smile before your final ones are placed. When you return to the office, your doctor will securely bond your veneers to your teeth and your new smile will be ready for the world!
When we restore your damaged teeth, we don’t want them to simply be functional. We put in the extra effort to make sure they are beautiful as well! We do this by using metal-free, all-porcelain crowns and bridges. These restorations strengthen your teeth just like traditional metal ones, but they have the added benefit of being able to be shaded to match the rest of your smile. You’ll no longer have to worry about unsightly gray restorations sticking out in your mouth whenever you talk, laugh, or eat. Also, because they are metal-free, this means your new tooth won’t experience sensitivity when it is exposed to hot or cold temperatures. Plus, they are completely biocompatible, meaning we can use them to treat patients who suffer from metal allergies without issue.
Does your smile look a little dull, yellow, or discolored? If so, your answer isn’t on your toothbrush. While whitening toothpastes do a great job of helping your teeth maintain their current shade, they do very little to break up deeply ground-in stains.
In order to truly make your smile shine, you need to get professional teeth whitening. For this, we can offer you two options. We can provide you a custom-made take home kit so you can whiten your smile on your own schedule, or to save time, we can offer you a complete treatment in our office that only takes an hour. No matter which method you choose, you’ll soon have a smile that will be up to 10 shades whiter!
