What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is built around the principle of smile design. When devising your cosmetic dentistry treatment, our team will take into account your facial composition and features to determine which treatments will best help you conceal cosmetic concerns and achieve a brighter, more symmetrical smile. Our treatments range from minimally invasive procedures such as teeth whitening to more comprehensive treatments such as a smile makeover.
During your consultation, we will evaluate your smile and discuss which treatments will best help you address your unique concerns.
Cosmetic dentistry treatments are increasingly popular with patients since they can transform a smile without the need for extensive surgery. There is little recovery downtime associated with most cosmetic procedures and patients who undergo these minimally invasive treatments are usually able to return to their normal routine immediately following their appointment.
Choosing Your Cosmetic Treatments
During your initial consultation, we will evaluate your smile and discuss which treatments will best help you address your unique concerns. Duggan Dental Group has several treatment options available for you to choose from, and these range from minimally invasive to more comprehensive procedures.
We will usually begin cosmetic treatment with teeth whitening to ensure that your smile is at its brightest before beginning other procedures. We offer in-office and take-home treatments, which both provide patients with a more concentrated and effective whitening solution than over-the-counter whitening treatments.
Dental bonding is a cost-effective and efficient method of concealing minor chips, cracks, and gaps in your smile. We will use resin that is carefully matched to the color of your smile to brighten and reshape your teeth without removing any of your existing tooth structure.
Made from translucent, high-quality materials that closely match the appearance of your surrounding teeth, porcelain veneers are a great option for patients who want comprehensive coverage for aesthetic concerns with highly lifelike results.
One of the aspects addressed in smile design treatments is how much of your gums show when you smile. If your smile reveals three to four millimeters of gum tissue, you may be a good candidate for gum contouring. During this procedure, we will conservatively reshape your gums to conceal a gummy smile and provide overall symmetry.
Patients who choose to undergo two or more cosmetic dentistry treatments can combine their procedures into a smile makeover. A smile makeover may span several visits, but is designed to help you comprehensively enhance all aspects of your smile including discoloration, gaps, and disproportionate teeth.
BOTOX® injections can provide therapeutic relief from headaches, but can also decrease the appearance of wrinkles. These injections consist of a highly purified protein called botulinum toxin which is injected into different areas of concern on the face to alleviate pain and conceal frown lines and other prominent wrinkles.
Schedule Your Consultation
We believe that every patient deserves a smile that is not only healthy but brilliant. Our doctors can help you design a treatment plan that complements your facial features and boosts your overall self-confidence. For patients who are unsure about cosmetic dentistry and wish to "try on" treatment prior to committing to a procedure, our office also offers wax-ups and advanced digital previews as an added service.
