Cosmetic Dentistry

Having a flawed, lackluster smile can take a toll on one’s well being and mental health. An imperfect smile can make us feel very self-conscious. Fortunately, cosmetic dental treatments can transform your smile and your life. Our team at Dental Studio offers an array of cosmetic treatments that can transform even the most flawed and damaged teeth into an aesthetically pleasing smile.

Teeth Whitening

Dental Studio is proud to offer Sinsational Smile - a revolutionary teeth whitening system that delivers beautiful results in a 20 minute, in-office treatment. Sinsational Smile involves using prescription-strength whitening solutions, comfortable oral trays and an LED light system, which accelerates the teeth whitening process. Patients who receive this treatment will be sent home with whitening pens that can be used for touch ups after their initial in-office session.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers can produce a full smile makeover. This treatment involves placing tooth-shaped cosmetic enhancements over teeth. A veneer is a custom-made, razor-thin shell that is constructed from high-quality porcelain. Porcelain veneers are bonded over the front of teeth to conceal flaws like jagged edges, chips, stains and gaps.

Cosmetic Bonding

Like veneers, cosmetic bonding is used to conceal damaged teeth and other smile imperfections. Cosmetic bonding is less expensive than veneers and typically has a shorter lifespan. Bonding involves applying composite resin over teeth. Composite resin is a tooth-colored compound that is placed over the teeth with paintbrush-like strokes in liquid form and then hardened with a curing light. Composite resin is tintable so that it can be matched to biological tooth structure.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

When patients suffer with a variety of issues including cosmetic problems and damage that affects the functionality of a smile, full mouth reconstruction might be a wise treatment option. Full mouth reconstruction can involve a combination of cosmetic and restorative procedures. When patients receive this type of treatment, custom treatment plans will be developed to suit a patient’s unique needs.

Dentures

Tooth loss has devastating effects on our oral function, health and emotional wellness. Today’s dentures can address all of the effects of tooth loss. Partial and full dentures are custom made by technicians from very lifelike materials such as porcelain and acrylic.

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, we invite you to schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation with our team at Dental Studio. At your appointment, we will help you determine what types of procedures are right for your needs and your budget!

FAQs

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry involves using professional treatments to address imperfections and damage to teeth and gums that affect the aesthetics of a smile. Treatments can include a combination of restorations and smile enhancing-prosthetics. Some patients benefit greatly from an in-office teeth whitening treatment while others might need a combination of treatments and procedures to achieve a uniform, vibrant smile.

Common treatments used to improve the appearance of teeth include placing white restorations, porcelain veneers, or composite resin over teeth. Those who suffer with various imperfections and/or have experienced tooth loss, might need full mouth reconstruction. Full mouth reconstruction involves a person receiving a combination of procedures to improve the appearance and functionality of one’s smile. This can involve receiving restorations, cosmetic enhancements, and/or partial dentures. Those who have sustained total tooth loss will benefit from receiving full, custom dentures.

What is a veneer?
A veneer is a custom cosmetic enhancement that is made to fit permanently over the front surface of a tooth. Wafer thin, these tooth-shaped pieces of porcelain conceal flaws and extrinsic tooth damage. Once bonded over a tooth, a veneer will hide chips, cracks, permanent stains, and jagged edges. A series of veneers can be made and bonded over anterior teeth to produce a flawless-looking smile.
I have sensitive teeth, can I still whiten my teeth?
Many teeth whitening products that are sold over the counter contain abrasives or unstable formulas that can exacerbate tooth sensitivity. Fortunately, those with sensitive teeth can receive whiter teeth with professional treatments. Our team at Dental Studio offers Sinsational Smile, a fast, in-office whitening treatment that dramatically lightens teeth. While patients might experience mild tooth sensitivity after professional treatment, it will subside within a few days.
How does bonding work?
Cosmetic bonding is a treatment that involves applying composite resin to teeth. Composite resin is a tooth-colored compound that is made from a mixture of glass and plastic. This compound is used for restorations like fillings as well. When used in bonding treatments, composite resin can conceal flaws like chips, gaps, or stains. Cosmetic bonding can make a smile appear more uniform, white, and vibrant. Composite resin is applied to teeth in liquid form and hardened with a curing light.
