Which Cosmetic Option is Right for Me?
At Ravens Family Dental, we believe that your cosmetic results and tailored treatments go hand-in-hand. This is why, when determining which services best fit your needs, we take our time in creating your treatment plan.
Because your smile is as unique as you are, we conduct detailed consultations, exams, and take a series of digital x-rays to gain a complete understanding of your needs and goals. These factors are especially important for not only detecting potential oral and overall health issues but also for deciding which cosmetic treatments can help you achieve your dream smile.
Our available cosmetic solutions include:
What are Invisalign and SureSmile?
Invisalign and SureSmile are alternative solutions to traditional orthodontic treatment that consider your comfort as well as natural aesthetics. These systems use virtually invisible aligner trays made of clear and safe plastic. Each aligner is made to fit your specific smile and uses pinpointed pressure to gradually and gently straighten your teeth over time.
In addition to aesthetics, Invisalign and SureSmile offer many benefits, including interrupted diet and oral hygiene. Your clear trays are also removable, meaning you can eat, drink, and care for your smile without worry.
Who qualifies for Invisalign and SureSmile?
While your aligners are removable, you must wear them for up to twenty-two hours a day. This helps keep your treatment time on track as well as avoiding orthodontic relapse. Because of these treatment guidelines, our dentists often recommend Invisalign and SureSmile for responsible teens and adults who are more likely to follow through.
What are Veneers?
Veneers are thin yet durable pieces of porcelain we use to help you address multiple aesthetic issues all at once. When properly applied to the surfaces of your teeth, they address issues ranging from mild chips and cracks to dental gaps, severe discoloration, and even minor forms of misalignment.
Will My Veneers Look Natural?
Absolutely! Porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic treatment because they can mimic the natural shade, shape, and translucency of teeth. During consultations, our dentists use a keen eye for detail to thoroughly analyze your teeth, gums, smile, and other surrounding factors, like your skin and eye color.
We work closely with you to ensure you personally sign off on your veneer plan before we send any impressions and notes off to our trusted local lab. Once you receive your new veneers, you can confidently leave our office with the smile of your dreams!
How Can Composite Fillings Help My Smile’s Appeal?
Minor cracks, chips, wear, or decay can all impact the natural beauty of your smile. At Ravens Family Dental, we provide natural-looking composite fillings to help repair teeth while also renewing appeal.
The composite resin material we use is easily matched to the shade of your enamel and applied directly. White fillings are also ideal for helping to reshape parts of enamel that have been exposed after removing decay.
Composite fillings often require little prep before application, allowing you to keep more of your tooth’s natural structure. After applying your custom filling, the resin easily bonds to your enamel. These restorations can also be applied to any tooth in your smile.
Are Fillings Different from Dental Bonding?
Although these two cosmetic treatments sound similar, they are different. Dental bonding is a fast, cost-effective procedure that uses tooth-colored composite resin to help improve the shape, shade, and uniformity of your teeth. Bonding can also improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, broken, cracked, stained, or have spaces between them.
When Do I Need a Crown Over a Filling or Bonding?
Dental crowns are ideal for helping to treat a tooth that is severely damaged, decayed, or worn. While crowns are a restorative service, they use beautiful porcelain materials, also making them a favorable cosmetic treatment.
At Ravens Family Dental, we can provide you with quick, effective, and quality treatment with CEREC same-day crowns. With our in-house CEREC technology and milling machine, our team can craft customizable crowns within a single office visit. We can also create seamless dental bridges using this innovative treatment technique.
What is BOTOX and How Can It Help Me?
BOTOX is used to help treat a variety of conditions, such as TMJ disorder, facial pain, and aching muscles through a series of injections. With BOTOX, we can help reduce the pain from chronic headaches, lockjaw, and teeth grinding. Our dentists also use this treatment to help reduce fines lines and wrinkles, promoting a more youthful appearance.
How Can I Whiten My Smile Professionally?
Professional teeth whitening with Philips Zoom provides comfortable, safe, and effective treatment. Professional whitening uses a powerful, specialty-grade whitening solution to lift pesky surface stains from your enamel, revealing your smile’s natural glowing shade. While results can vary based on your level of discoloration, you can still count on teeth becoming noticeably whiter.
How Did My Teeth Become Stained?
Teeth become stained for a variety of reasons. Below are seven of the most common contributors to discoloration.
- Dark foods and drinks (red wine, berries, soda, tomato sauce, etc.)
- Smoking and tobacco use
- Poor oral hygiene
- Taking certain medications
- Environmental factors
How We Use Dental Laser Technology to Improve Your Smile
Dental laser technology has made it possible for our team to provide safe, precise, and virtually painless treatment during many of our procedures. One of these services includes gum contouring.
Also knows as a “gummy smile,” extra gum tissue can often make teeth appear too short. We help address this aesthetic issue using the precision of laser technology. Gum contouring involves removing excess gum tissue from your smile and reshaping it to help provide you with a more even appearance along the gum line.
