When Is Cosmetic Dental Care Appropriate?
Many services in modern dentistry combine the benefits of tooth-colored materials with the preservation or improvement of dental health. Patients who are in need of treatments for damaged, decayed, or missing teeth can benefit greatly from functional and cosmetic dental prosthetics such as porcelain crowns, bridges, and dentures.
Patients who wish to look their best for weddings, graduations, and public speaking engagements can also benefit greatly from as aesthetic enhancement with composite resin bonding, veneers, and teeth whitening. Even brightening your teeth by a few shades can serve to greatly enhance the appearance of your smile and boost your confidence.
Dr. Alford and our team are committed to creating ideally healthy and attractive smiles. Crowns and other restorations provided by our practice are made in-office, limiting the number of appointments necessary to complete treatment. These prosthetics are also matched to the shade of the neighboring healthy teeth, creating a seamless and natural looking smile. Available cosmetic restorations include:
- Tooth-Colored Fillings
- Same-Day Crowns
- Porcelain Bridges
- Full and Partial Dentures
For patients in need of reconstructive treatment, we provide pretreatments such as scaling and root planing or root canal therapy before pacing your prosthetics. Restorations can also be added to dental implants placed in-office, ensuring bite stability and the long term health of the jaw.
Teeth Whitening and Porcelain Veneers
Brighter teeth can make a significant difference in the appearance of your smile. Dr. Alford provides custom whitening trays and bleaching gel to comfortably enhance the appearance of patients’ teeth on the schedule that best works for them. We work closely with patients to customize the shade of their smile based on their personal aesthetic goals, avoiding the sensitivity that comes from in-office treatments.
If patients have internally stained teeth, or teeth that are too discolored for topical whitening, we are provide porcelain veneers. These durable tooth-colored shells are made in our office or by a lab dependent on the needs of each patient. Veneers can even correct teeth that are slightly crowded, asymmetrical, or worn down.
