What Issues Can Cosmetic Dentistry Address?

At Indian Springs Dental Excellence, we focus on first ensuring your oral health rather than just improving overall aesthetics. After completing the basics, we will do a one-on-one cosmetic consultation. The following conditions can be treated using cosmetic dental services:

  • Tooth discoloration
  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Slightly crook or misaligned teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Worn or weakened teeth
  • “Gummy” smile
  • Gaps or uneven spacing

The beauty of cosmetic dental care is that many different treatments can be combined and completed at the same time. Combining treatments reduces the need for multiple appointments saving you valuable time and money.

How Else Can Cosmetic Dentistry Help Me?

When you think of cosmetic dentistry, it's not uncommon to imagine yourself getting a surface treatment like teeth whitening. You’d be surprised to discover that cosmetic dental care can significantly help improve your overall quality of life as well.

Comprehensive treatments, such as dental implants, can improve the look and feel of your smile and help reestablish essential functions that you use every day. The ability to speak properly and smile with full confidence encourages healthy self-expression and happiness. Being able to chew properly provides essential stimulation to your jawbone so it will remain strong and healthy. Strong bones help prevent natural facial features from shifting or sagging. When you have strong teeth, gums, and bone structure you can eat healthier, digest your food properly, and sustain better overall health.

Although commonly performed on adults, people of all ages can benefit from cosmetic dental care. In fact, there are quite a few services that can be tailored to children, teens, and seniors.  

Popular Cosmetic Treatments for Adults

From years of use, your smile can become worn down and dull. Issues like decay, discoloration, damage, or trauma can deteriorate dental health, function, and beauty.

Indian Springs Dental Excellence provides exceptional cosmetic services to battle the inevitable issues that come with age.

The five most popular treatments with our adult patients include:

  1. Teeth Whitening with BriteSmile®
  2. Porcelain Veneers
  3. Gum Reshaping with our BIOLASE® Waterlase® Laser
  4. CEREC Crowns
  5. White (Composite) Fillings

Is Cosmetic Dentistry for Seniors?

Absolutely! Growing older does not mean that the look, feel, and function of your smile needs to be anything less than terrific. Senior patients often experience tooth loss, gum disease, tooth sensitivity, enamel discoloration, dry mouth, and other complications.

Advances in cosmetic dentistry provide for efficient, quality treatments such as dental implants, fixed bridges, porcelain crowns, natural-looking restorations, and many others. Modern treatments offer the opportunity to recapture a sense of youthfulness and boost confidence.

Benefit of Cosmetic Dental Care for Teens

Misaligned teeth, cavities, and tooth discoloration are just a few of the concerns your adolescent worries about as they make the transition into adulthood. Other popular fads like facial or lip piercings, along with inconsistent dental hygiene, and tobacco use can take a toll on the overall appeal and well-being of your teen’s oral health. Rigorous sports activities also increase the risk of damage due to trauma.

When your teen has dental chips, cracks, or fractures, enamel-colored bonding is an aesthetically-pleasing way to repair the damage and let them smile with confidence. We also provide a discreet way to straighten teeth with Invisalign. This method allows responsible teens to discreetly correct misalignment issues and avoids the obvious metal wires and brackets of traditional orthodontic treatment.

For teens looking to brighten their smile before a dance, social gathering, or just in time for their yearbook picture, we offer professional teeth whitening with BriteSmile®.

How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Help My Child’s Smile?

Since the enamel on your child’s teeth is about 50% thinner than the enamel of adult teeth, decay can quickly do more damage, increasing the risks of cavities.

Cosmetic dentistry services such as white composite fillings, and porcelain inlays and onlays are safe treatments we can customize to your child’s smile. These treatments are an ideal option for protecting teeth against further decay or injury. Further protection with fluoride and sealants applied during cleanings and exams is also beneficial.

Why Choose Professional Teeth Whitening?

Many factors can contribute to tooth discoloration. Certain medications, dark foods, and drinks, or tobacco products, can all stain teeth. Professional whitening treatment offers many benefits that you often can’t get from over-the-counter products. Our trusted dentists provide:

  • Professional-grade whitening gel
  • Proper application of whitening solution
  • Quicker treatment time
  • Maximized comfort
  • Customized treatment

With professional teeth whitening, the specially-formulated gel can reduce tooth discoloration significantly by breaking up the pigment molecules, destroying them on a molecular level. Treatments can last for many months with proper oral hygiene and regular checkups.

What Does Whitening with BriteSmile® Involve?

Our professional-grade BriteSmile® gel contains 15 percent hydrogen peroxide, which is a lower concentration than other products. This formula is safer and gentler on your enamel, with less chance of tooth sensitivity.

A special blue curing light is used to activate the gel for about 20 minutes while you relax in the dental chair. The light does not get hot. It is not a laser or an ultraviolet light. It is simply a soothing blue light that is designed to work with the BriteSmile® teeth whitening gel. We repeat the process to achieve the desired color. Treatment time can be as quick as 20 minutes, depending on the severity of discoloration.

How is Invisalign Different from Traditional Braces?

The Invisalign system involves a series of clear plastic aligners each custom-designed for an ideal, comfortable that applies gentle pressure in specific areas to correct mild to moderate orthodontic problems. The trays are changed every two weeks to straighten your smile gradually. This system is virtually invisible and continues to be a popular and highly-favorable choice among patients.

While traditional, metal braces are a reliable method for correcting mild to complex orthodontic issues, they are very noticeable. Braces use metal brackets semi-permanently bonded to the teeth along with wires and rubber bands to guide your teeth into optimal alignment. Throughout treatment, traditional braces are periodically tightened to ensure the right amount of pressure is applied to your aligning smile.

Consider the Clear Aligner Advantage

In addition to aligning smiles discreetly, Invisalign can offer other benefits including:

  • Removable design
  • No dietary restrictions
  • Easy to care for
  • Trouble-free oral hygiene
  • Shorter treatment time
  • More comfortable and discreet

Is Invisalign Treatment for Anyone?

Invisalign treatment can be for just about anyone in good oral health but does require wearing them diligently. The aligners need to be worn for 22 hours daily to achieve the best possible results and to avoid orthodontic relapse. This treatment has better success with responsible teens and adults that will be able to comply with these important guidelines.

Comparing Inlays, Onlays, Bonding, Crowns, and Veneers

Enamel-colored inlays, onlays, bonding, white fillings, porcelain veneers, and CEREC crowns offer cosmetic results as the treatments restore damage, function, and aesthetics. Depending on your specific situation, we work with you to choose the best solution for your specific needs. We also take into consideration your aesthetic desires and budget.

Here are some important aspects to consider when deciding between these treatment solutions.

Tooth-Colored Inlays: An inlay is a type of custom-crafted filling. Porcelain inlays are popular because they resemble your natural tooth.

  • Bonded to the tooth's center
  • Long-lasting fit
  • Porcelain resists staining
  • Minimal tooth alteration before placement
  • Ideal for minor dental damage

Tooth-Colored Onlays: An onlay is sometimes also referred to as a partial crown. Onlays can be utilized to conservatively repair teeth that have large defective fillings or have been damaged by excessive decay or trauma.

  • Applied "on" teeth, including at least one of the tooth’s cusps
  • Can provide full coverage for the biting surfaces of teeth
  • More conservative option to a crown
  • Help preserve more of the tooth's natural structure
  • Can replace old, worn restorations

Enamel-Colored bonding: At Indian Springs Dental Excellence, we offer dental bonding matched to your exact enamel shade for repairing teeth that are decayed, chipped, fractured, or discolored. We can also help make your teeth appear longer and use it as an alternative to amalgam fillings.

  • Can be done in a single visit
  • Among the easiest and cost-effective treatments
  • Can be used to close spaces between teeth
  • Can change the shape or color of teeth
  • The composite resin is shaped and polished to match surrounding teeth

White Fillings: We only use enamel-colored fillings made of the highest-quality, body-safe materials like composite resin. Fillings are used to restore the natural appearance of a decayed, damaged, or previously filled tooth.

  • Discreet treatment
  • Treatment completed in a single visit
  • Minimal preparation of tooth needed
  • Treatment is often covered by insurance
  • Created to mimic look, feel, and function on natural teeth

Porcelain Veneers: Veneers are thin, yet durable ceramic sheets which mimic your natural tooth enamel. We offer life-like porcelain veneers for addressing dental cracks, chips, mild misalignment, and deep, persistent enamel discoloration. Veneers can help you achieve a picture-perfect, more uniformed smile that looks very natural.

  • Can mask numerous dental and aesthetic issues
  • Quickly restore aesthetics
  • Applied to most visible teeth of the smile
  • Not typically covered by dental insurance

CEREC Crowns: Crowns are both reliable and versatile. They can be used to treat many issues, from dental damage to root canals and dental implants. At our Hamilton dental office, we proudly provide CEREC crowns for prompt treatment that does not compromise quality.

  • Most durable option
  • Protects entire tooth structure
  • Improves tooth shape, strength, and aesthetics
  • Usually covered by insurance
  • Major reshaping of the tooth needed for placement
