Now more than ever, patients desire straight, bright teeth and are asking dentists how to achieve that. With the advances in modern dentistry the smile you want is closer than you think. Cosmetic dentistry refers to a host of dental treatments designed to correct chipped, cracked, discolored, and unevenly spaced teeth to enhance the overall look of your smile.
At Uptown Dental we provide cosmetic treatments to help you improve the look of your smile, in a lot less time than you think. We have solutions that will restore your smile! Some of the more popular cosmetic treatments performed in our office include:
Teeth whitening is one of the fastest and easiest ways to enhance your smile. The effects are long-lasting and can help you brighten a smile dulled by aging, food and drink stains or fluorosis. Your beautiful, pearly white smile can be restored with simple tooth-whitening procedures.
Teeth require dental crowns due to cracks, old damaged fillings, or bite problems. A dental crown is a custom-designed, tooth-shaped restoration that is fitted over the prepared surface of a damaged tooth to recapture the appearance and function of the tooth. A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth and is attached securely to the existing teeth on either side of the gap.
Quite often the larger teeth at the very front of your mouth can be stained, broken, or damaged, lending a generally unattractive appearance to your smile. This can easily be corrected with dental bonding. Bonding is a simple, painless and affordable procedure that has many uses, including: repairing chipped teeth, closing spaces between teeth, reshaping and covering badly stained teeth.
Dental fillings heal the damage caused by cavities, prevent further decay from taking place, and help you restore your teeth’s structure and strength. Made of a tooth colored resin material, these fillings are made to match your existing teeth and to provide you with a smile that looks clean and natural.
Made of porcelain and custom fitted to your teeth. Veneers offer a way to repair crooked or chipped teeth. They can also be used to cover badly stained teeth and to smooth out an uneven smile. Porcelain veneers are highly durable, thin porcelain shells that fit over the front surface of your natural teeth leaving you with an attractive, natural-looking smile. The process of fitting and bonding veneers to your teeth can be completed in as little as two visits.
Also known as indirect fillings, inlays and onlays made from porcelain, composite or gold materials are a long-lasting yet cosmetic way to provide a “filling” to teeth with tooth decay or similar structural damage. Dental inlays and onlays can also be used to repair cracked teeth in place of a dental crown if the damage is not too substantial. Whereas dental fillings are molded into place within the mouth during a dental visit, inlays and onlays are created in a dental laboratory before being fitted and adhesively bonded into place. Since dental inlays and onlays can be made from durable tooth-colored porcelain, they offer a much more enduring and natural-looking result than metal fillings.
