Why Choose Donlands Family Dentistry for Cosmetic Dentistry?
- Teeth Whitening For Brighter Teeth In 90 Minutes
- Invisalign Straightens Teeth Without Wires Or Brackets
- Metal-Free Emax & Zirconia Ceramics
If you are hoping to make a big change to your natural smile, porcelain veneers may be the perfect vehicle for this goal. This style of restoration is meticulously customized and designed to be extremely thin in nature, almost resembling a shell. The “shell” then fits into place over just the front surfaces of the natural teeth, hiding them from view behind a brand-new, seamless appearance that can correct countless dental flaws all at once.
Metal-Free Dental Crowns
In today’s modern dental landscape, restorations like crowns don’t have to be crafted from metals, silvers, and golds. Donlands Family Dentistry can use highly esthetic materials instead that provide outstanding quality, including Zirconia and Emax. These options are so lifelike that they even reflect light in the same way as original tooth enamel, and their 100% biocompatible nature is very safe and comfortable, even for patients with proven sensitivities and allergies to more traditional dental materials.
Even the smallest cosmetic imperfections can drain your sense of self-esteem over time. Thankfully, bonding is a fast and cost-effective treatment option for correcting minor issues like thin gaps between teeth, chips in the enamel, and more. In most cases, this procedure will only require a single appointment of your time. Tooth-colored composite resin will be applied to the tooth/teeth in question and sculpted with an artistic flair so that it blends beautifully into place with no one around you being the wiser.
Invisalign® Clear Braces
Many adults dream of finally achieving a straighter smile, but they understandably dislike the idea of wearing metal braces for months or years on end. Invisalign is an excellent alternative for image-conscious patients who still want to correct noticeable gaps and misaligned teeth. Instead of age-old wires and brackets, you will wear a series of custom aligners that are designed from clear plastic, making their appearance more subtle. Their removable nature also allows for a full diet and stress-free oral hygiene throughout the treatment process.
Even healthy teeth can lose their natural shine over the years, becoming dull or yellowed in appearance. If you’re ready to regain a confident glow, professional teeth whitening options are available here at Donlands Family Dentistry. Looking for fast, dramatic improvements? Our in-office Whitening can lighten enamel by several shades in as little as an hour. Alternatively, our take-home kits provide the same beautiful transformation at a more flexible and gradual pace.
Sometimes, excessive gum tissue can leave teeth looking overly short or unbalanced. Our team may recommend aesthetic recontouring with the help of the state-of-the-art Sirona soft tissue laser to sculpt a more proper gum line, removing small amounts of soft tissue where needed and revealing unnecessarily hidden dental structure. You can finally leave your “gummy” smile safely in the past!
Virtual Smile Design
When planning a smile makeover, many patients understandably feel a little nervous. What if the final result isn’t what they have in mind? Thankfully, our team here in East York can essentially give you a sneak peek into the future with the help of virtual smile design technology. All we need is a current photo of you, which can be manipulated to reflect the positive changes of services like Invisalign, cosmetic bonding, and teeth whitening before any actual treatment begins. With the help of this “sneak peek,” you can pursue the treatment you want from a place of full confidence.
In some cases, a single cosmetic service is not enough to help a patient reach their goals. In such instances, we may recommend a smile makeover. This personalized treatment plan can combine multiple services in the most efficient way possible, all with the goal of helping you to achieve a stunning and confident grin. A smile makeover may include things like veneers, teeth whitening, gum recontouring, metal-free crowns, restorative procedures, and more.
Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry
If you’d like a precise estimate of the price of your treatment, we recommend scheduling a consultation with our East York dental team. Of course, if you aren’t quite ready to make that step yet (or your appointment is on the calendar, but you want to learn more on the topic of the cost in the meantime), then you can also read on. As always, if you have any questions, you can reach out to us anytime – we’re here to help!
Which Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?
The road to making your dream smile a reality starts with a consultation, which is when our East York cosmetic dentists will help you determine which treatment is right for you. For example, if your confidence has been negatively impacted by gaps between your teeth, then we will discuss dental bonding, veneers, and Invisalign. Conversely, if you want to remove stubborn stains, we will determine the cause and severity to determine if professional teeth whitening, dental bonding, or veneers are the best fit. We even use state-of-the-art Virtual Smile Design technology, which allows you to take a look at the final result before you even start your treatment!
Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making
It’s common for patients to fixate on the price tag without fully considering all of the benefits of investing in cosmetic dentistry. However, whitening, straightening, and otherwise perfecting your smile can have an immense, positive impact on multiple facets of your life. To begin, having a gorgeous grin can help you make a great first impression and boost your confidence, helping you succeed in your personal and professional life. It’s also worth mentioning that investing in the look of your smile can also benefit your oral health. After all, you’ll be significantly more motivated to brush, floss, and adopt other good dental care habits if you love your smile!
Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
Have questions about cosmetic dentistry in East York? Our team would love to help you find the answers you’re looking for so you can confidently decide which smile-enhancing treatment is right for you! In addition to giving our team a call or scheduling a consultation, you can also read on to learn the answers to some FAQs we get from patients.
How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Improve My Oral Health?
Naturally, cosmetic dentistry can do wonders for the appearance of your smile, but did you know that many of these treatments benefit your oral health as well? For example, Invisalign can fix crooked or gapped teeth that harbor plaque and bacteria, increasing your chances of gum disease. Similarly, veneers can address misshapen teeth that negatively impact your bite and speaking patterns.
It’s also worth noting that when you have a smile you love, you care for it. As a result, investing in cosmetic dentistry can inspire you to adopt good habits, like implementing a solid oral hygiene regimen at home, getting a dental checkup and cleaning every six months, and avoiding unhealthy dental habits, like using tobacco products.
What Should I Expect at an Initial Consultation for a Smile Makeover? ?
At your appointment, you’ll meet with one of our talented cosmetic dentists, who will learn all about your smile goals and conduct a full assessment to see the state of your teeth and gums. This is crucial because any existing oral health issues need to be treated beforehand. Otherwise, you won’t get the beautiful, long-lasting results you deserve.
While planning your treatment, we can use Virtual Smile Design to give you a glimpse into what your new and improved smile will look like. Not only will this alleviate any nerves you’re feeling, but this will also keep you motivated throughout the treatment process!
Toward the end of your visit, we will provide you with an estimate of the cost and review all of the available financial solutions. That way, transforming your smile doesn’t cause you any stress and there are no unwanted surprises when it comes to the cost.
How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?
There are two main factors that impact the answer: the cosmetic dental treatment you choose and how well you care for your smile. Let’s start with the first point. While professional teeth whitening can last anywhere from several months to a few years, other treatments, like veneers, can last for more than two decades. That’s why it’s important to consider which dental flaws you’d like to address as well as how long the results will last. Naturally, how well you care for your smile will play a role in the longevity of your results as well, no matter which treatment you pick. If you smoke, don’t floss regularly, and skip your biannual checkups and cleanings, then there is a good chance that oral health problems will surface, and your results won’t last very long.
