Cosmetic dentistry focuses on the aesthetics as well as the function of your teeth. Both aspects are important for your teeth as well as your overall well being.
At Reich Dental Center here in Roswell, GA, we offer several cosmetic dentistry services to our patients.
Our doctors offer cosmetic dentistry procedures that can help address any current oral needs, as well as prevent future problems from occurring.
Some of our most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures include teeth whitening, dental bonding, porcelain crowns, and veneers.
One of the most popular cosmetic dental services in the United States is teeth whitening. In fact, Americans spent nearly $1.5 billion on at-home teeth whitening products last year. While this is an option, professional whitening services such as those offered by our team, are the best route of achieving ideal results.
Professional whitening is the most effective and safest way to obtain whiter teeth. Most of our patients can expect their whitening treatment to last for six months or more.
You will experience an improvement of up to six shades' whiter teeth from our services. Professional whitening is also safer.
The home-bleaching kit that uses dental trays includes a powerful whitening agent. However, misusing this agent can damage your enamel and be counterproductive. In addition, it is not as strong as the treatments used in our office.
Our professionals offer two different options when it comes to teeth whitening.
|The first option is the more traditional route that will require two to three in-office treatments. Each treatment session will last for approximately one hour.
|The alternative is a Zoom whitening session. A Zoom whitening treatment can achieve the same results as the multiple treatments and will require a single prolonged exposure that lasts for two to three hours. The bleaching chemical is supplemented with a UV light, which helps it remove stains from your teeth.
If you have suffered a small chip or crack in your teeth, or have two teeth that have an unusual gap, dental bonding may be the answer to your dental needs.
Our doctors utilize dental bonding as a flexible treatment option for small cosmetic issues.
Bonding is a cosmetic procedure that uses a tooth-colored resin material that bonds to your enamel. It is by far the cheapest and easiest cosmetic dental solution available.
Our team uses dental bonding for a wide variety of cosmetic issues to provide your tooth with a full, symmetrical look.
One of the most common problems treated with dental bonding is chipped teeth. If you have chipped your tooth but have not damaged the nerves or core of it, then bonding is an excellent solution.
The affordability and ease of use are what makes the dental bonding option so appealing to patients. Our professionals can easily apply the bonding material without causing you any discomfort.
In fact, dental bonding can often be placed in less than an hour and does not require the use of any anesthetic. This means that you can get back to your daily responsibilities faster.
Crowns are a staple of restorative dentistry, but they are also an excellent cosmetic option.
Specifically, porcelain crowns are a means of encapsulating a damaged or stained tooth and giving it a brand-new look. This long lasting and great looking treatment is one of our most popular.
What is the Process of Getting a Porcelain Crown?
|The first step to receiving your porcelain crown is to meet with our team. During this consultation, our professionals will conduct a thorough oral exam. We will also need to obtain digital images of your oral cavity.
|Once the decision is made to proceed forward with a porcelain crown, we will need to grind down the target tooth and take a mold of it. The tooth is ground down so that the crown is not oversized and blends in with your smile.
|This mold is sent to a dental lab, where it is used to create your porcelain crown. You will likely be fitted with a temporary crown while you await the final model.
|When you return, our professional will check the fit of your porcelain crown.
|Once they have ensured that it fits correctly, it will be cemented into place.
|While it will take a few hours to cure, you should be able to resume normal eating and drinking habits later in the day.
|Most patients do not experience any discomfort with the placement of a crown.
What Are Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin dental appliances with shells that resemble natural teeth attached to the surface of the anterior (front) teeth for enhanced aesthetic appearance.
What are veneers made of?
Veneers are usually made of resin-composite or porcelain materials, and once they are bonded, they can't be removed.
Why Do People Get Veneers?
We recommend veneers for several cosmetic-related concerns such as broken, chipped, and discolored teeth.
Some patients only require one veneer for their chipped or broken teeth, but most get between six to eight veneers for a symmetrical smile and general evenness.
Types of Veneers
There are several types of veneers, and one of our trained dental experts can conduct an assessment before recommending a suitable option for you.
The Process: How Are Veneers Done?
|When you visit us, the first step involves grinding the damaged teeth before making an impression of a mold. The mold helps our experts to customize porcelain veneers that help you achieve the desired look without compromising quality.
|Our professionals use cutting-edge technology such as CAM/CAD to design veneers specifically for your mouth.
|As you wait for the permanent veneers to be made, the dentist will provide you with temporary veneers.
|Everything is done in the dentist's office so that you can leave with permanent veneers on the same day.
|If composite resin veneers are recommended, the dentist will etch the tooth's surface to prepare it for the composite material. Depending on the patient's intended look, the dentist may be required to add extra composite layers.
|Once the right look is achieved, the dentist will finish by hardening or curing the composite using a special light.
|It's important to schedule an appointment with our experts before having the composite done to ensure your teeth can maintain them.
