Cosmetic dentistry has skyrocketed in popularity over the past few decades. At Artistic Dental, we specialize in several cosmetic services aimed at improving the appearance of your teeth and overall smile. From minor cosmetic changes to full-tooth restorations, we have got you covered!
BOTOX® is an injectable medication that can be used to combat wrinkles and prevent headaches. BOTOX can also be used for a number of other purposes. Based on your specific needs, we may suggest BOTOX to reduce migraine headaches, lessen excessive sweating, or treat a TMJ disorder. JUVÉDERM® is a dermal filler designed to improve and counteract wrinkles in your face.
Cosmetic dental contouring is a service designed to improve the shape of your teeth and enhance the overall appearance of your smile. In the cosmetic tooth contouring procedure, our dentist removes small amounts of tooth enamel, which is the protective outer layer of the tooth. By making careful changes to the shape of the enamel, we correct cosmetic dental flaws and give your smile a more attractive appearance. In certain cases, we may recommend combining cosmetic contouring with dental bonding to achieve optimal results. Our team is typically able to complete cosmetic contouring in just one visit to our office so you can achieve a more beautiful smile after just one appointment!
Patients looking for a less-invasive and more cost-effective solution may benefit from dental bonding. Dental bonding involves the application of composite resin, a putty-like material, to the surface of an aesthetically displeasing tooth. For example, dental bonding is an excellent solution for minor chips or cracks. During the procedure, the composite resin will be color-matched to the existing shade of your enamel, making it virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your tooth.
A dental veneer is a razor-thin shell that is bonded to the front surface of a tooth. Like our dental crowns, our veneers are typically made from porcelain. Veneers can be used to fix teeth that are severely discolored, worn down, chipped or broken, misaligned, uneven, irregularly shaped, or even gapped. During the procedure, we have to remove a small amount of enamel to accommodate the thickness of the veneer. For this reason, the veneer procedure is considered irreversible.
Crooked teeth not only affect the aesthetics of your smile, but they can also be detrimental to your oral health. For instance, crowded teeth can be much more difficult to properly clean, leaving you at a greater risk for developing tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease. Luckily, people in need of orthodontic care have more options than ever before. We specialize in clear aligner treatment. Clear aligners are designed for patients who want a discrete and effective alternative to traditional metal braces.
Dermal fillers are injected into the area around the nose and mouth to smooth wrinkles, lines, and folds. These dermal fillers, such as JUVÉDERM®, can restore the natural volume and contours of your face and give you a more youthful appearance. Over time, the facial skin stretches a bit, resulting in a loss of facial volume. The natural loss of subcutaneous fat in the face, as well as sun exposure, lifestyle factors, and heredity, can affect the appearance of the facial skin. Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore fullness in the face.
One of the most common complaints we receive involves the brightness of our patients' smiles. For this reason, we offer professional teeth whitening treatment. Teeth whitening is one of the most basic and cost-effective ways to improve your smile. Stains from certain foods, drinks, medications, and personal habits, also known as extrinsic stains, are easy to remove with a bleaching solution. However, many store-bought bleaching products leave people dissatisfied with the results. Because we are trained professionals, we use a bleaching agent with a much higher concentration than store-bought alternatives. Our whitening treatment could make your teeth up to eight shades brighter in just a single appointment!
