At Cloverdale Dental Group, we offer a full range of dental services to assist your entire family and ensure that they enjoy great dental health and care.
Good dental habits can prevent many dental health problems. Some dental issues are easily fixed with a filling or a root canal, while others require more complex treatment, such as the placement of dental implants and/or extractions. If esthetics are a concern, cosmetic dentistry may be what is needed to improve the overall health and appearance of your own and/or your family members’ smile.
What is a Cosmetic Dentist?
A cosmetic dentist performs procedures that improve the appearance of your smile. Some of the procedures that they may perform include whitening teeth, reshaping teeth, or completely making over your smile. The best cosmetic dentistry practices will look at the overall appearance of your teeth and help you create a smile that shines, impresses, and is beautiful, as well as is functional.
What Type of Cosmetic Treatment Options are Available?
These dental professionals can complete a variety of complex procedures. The procedures can vary depending on the needs of each patient. A few common procedures include:
- Teeth Whitening
- Composite bonding
Some of these treatments are much more complex than others, whereas some can quickly improve your smile with just one visit. For example, composite bonding involves the use of a specific type of dental material on your teeth to give off the appearance that your teeth are straight and white. It can be used to cover darkened areas and close spaces. There are other options to help achieve this same result, often with a better and longer-lasting result, but composite bonding is an excellent option if you have crooked, chipped or stained teeth and want a fix that is quick, less expensive and immediate.
Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry
Dental implants may be necessary for some of your family members. If you or a family member have had a dental injury, gum disease, or had a tooth pulled, a dental implant can replace that lost tooth and bring back that beautiful smile that many individuals desperately want. An implant also has many benefits such as making eating and speaking much easier and helps keep the rest of the mouth healthy. Visit your family cosmetic dentist to determine if you should consider an implant and the best treatment options for your specific needs.
