Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a dental specialty that targets the appearance of your teeth and gums. Whether you have chipped teeth or severe tooth discoloration, cosmetic treatments can revitalize the shape, color, or size of your teeth.

While cosmetic dentistry focuses on aesthetics, it can also improve your smile’s function. For example, fixing a cracked tooth with cosmetic treatment can also restore the natural fit of your bite.

What dental concerns can cosmetic dentistry fix?

Dr. Albelais can transform your smile if you have one or more of the following cosmetic concerns:

 

  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Worn-down teeth
  • A gummy smile
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gapped teeth

 

Even if you feel generally happy with your smile, cosmetic dentistry can improve the overall uniformity and brightness of your teeth for a Hollywood look.

What are the most common cosmetic dentistry treatments?

Dr. Albelais has the specialized training and experience necessary to offer a broad range of cosmetic treatments, such as:

Veneers

Veneers are extremely thin porcelain restorations that bond to the surface of your teeth. These thin porcelain shells are completely stain-resistant and help enhance the shape, size, and color of damaged teeth.

Dental bonding

Dental bonding uses a solution of composite resin to fix enamel chips, fill in gapped teeth, correct misshapen teeth, and more. Applied as a liquid, composite resin blends in with the color of your teeth once hardened.

Invisalign®

Invisalign is a system of clear aligners that straighten your teeth much in the same way as braces. Clear aligners are translucent, removable, and easy to clean for those who want to straighten crooked teeth discreetly.

Teeth whitening

Professional teeth whitening removes stains from your teeth with powerful peroxide solutions. LED light therapy can also accelerate the whitening process to brighten your smile by up to several shades in a single visit.

Gingival contouring

Gingival contouring can help treat a gummy smile, in which the teeth look small because the gum tissue is too long. By removing a small portion of gum tissue, Dr. Albelais can bring balance to your teeth and gums.
