Who Can Benefit From Cosmetic Dentistry?
Many patients can benefit from cosmetic dentistry at Oak Hollow Family Dentistry. In our office, we recommend that patients have a healthy smile before undergoing cosmetic dentistry. If you need restorative dentistry work done, we recommend working on that with our team of experts first. This will ensure that your teeth are healthy enough to undergo cosmetic dentistry procedures.
At Oak Hollow Family Dentistry, many patients ask us about the option of teeth whitening. Many wonder if over-the-counter teeth whitening works just as well as professional teeth whitening. The answer is no. Although helpful in some cases, over-the-counter teeth whitening is not as intense or accurate as professional teeth whitening. The first advantage to professional teeth whitening is that Dr. Hoffman can examine your teeth to ensure they are healthy enough to undergo the process. Next, Dr. Hoffman can help you choose the right shade for your teeth. Lastly, Dr. Hoffman has the tools and expertise to whiten your teeth more accurately and efficiently than over-the-counter whiteners.
If you are looking for a whiter, straighter, and enlarged smile, dental veneers may be for you. Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells that are placed on the outside of your front teeth. The veneers are custom-made to fit your smile. Once set, Dr. Hoffman will shape the veneer to your liking. The porcelain makes them durable and stain-resistant. Yet, it is still essential to avoid biting your nails or opening packages with your teeth because these actions can chip and break dental veneers. These are a great option to cover up discolored, broken, or crooked teeth.
Dental crowns are caps that fit over your teeth. They are often made of porcelain, making them both stain-resistant and durable. Dental crowns can cover up discoloration, broken teeth, or cracked teeth. An advantage of dental crowns compared to dental veneers is that crowns cover the entire tooth. This protects the whole tooth from future decay along with covering-up imperfections around the entire tooth.
If you have a cracked tooth, dental bonding may be for you. Dental bonding uses the same material that is used in dental fillings, composite resin. The difference between dental fillings and dental bonding is that bonding repairs a tooth on the outside while a filling repairs the inside of the tooth. Dr. Hoffman can use composite resin to make your teeth appear straighter and chip-free.
At Oak Hollow Family Dentistry, we offer Invisalign clear aligners as orthodontic treatment. This cosmetic dentistry option slowly straightens your teeth by periodically changing dental aligners. As you wear more aligners, they slowly progress your teeth into the alignment of your dreams.
Cosmetic dentistry is a beautiful way to brighten, straighten, align, and enlarge your smile. At Oak Hollow Family Dentistry, we offer several cosmetic procedures. These procedures include teeth whitening, dental veneers, dental implants, dental crowns, dental bonding, and orthodontics. At Oak Hollow Family Dentistry, our goal is to help you achieve the smile of your dreams. From the health of your teeth to their appearance, we are here for you.
