Is Cosmetic Dentistry Right for Me?
Many people have something about their smile they’d like to change. If you look at your smile and wish something was different, it’s worth considering if a cosmetic option would be a good fit for you.
Cosmetic services are designed to deal with a wide range of aesthetic issues. Whether you’re dealing with stained enamel, a chipped tooth, a dental gap, or a gummy smile, you can find effective solutions that meet your goals.
Many cosmetic services are also restorative, promoting better health and aesthetics at the same time. Using tooth-colored composite and porcelain materials, we can treat cavities, dental damage, and missing teeth with durable and lifelike restorations. You no longer have to worry about a filling or crown that stands out in your smile.
What Cosmetic Dentistry Options Do You Offer?
At Signature Smiles, we strive to offer comprehensive care and a wide range of options for you to choose from. Our cosmetic services include:
How a Complete Smile Makeover Can Create Your Ideal Smile
Every smile has a unique appeal, and may also have unique challenges. Sometimes a single treatment is not enough to deliver the results you’re hoping for. That’s where a smile makeover can make a real difference.
A smile makeover is a fully customized cosmetic treatment plan that combines multiple services to deliver your desired results. Dr. Klein works with you to determine your goals, then discusses the cosmetic options that can help you achieve them. Every aspect of your smile is considered in the planning, from your oral health to face shape, lip thickness, and even skin tone.
The number and type of treatments will depend on what you hope to achieve. Some makeovers can be straightforward, such as combining veneer placement on some teeth and whitening the rest to create a bright, uniform smile. In other cases, more comprehensive care is needed, such as repairing some teeth with crowns and replacing others with dental implants. Regardless, Dr. Klein and his team always take the time to understand the issues that matter to you, and never push for more services than you need to reach your smile goals.
Can Veneers Help My Smile?
Veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments, and for a variety of cases, they are the most effective option. High-quality porcelain is crafted into thin shells, which the dentist bonds to the front surface of your most visible teeth. Dr. Klein designs each veneer to look like a fully natural tooth, carefully planning the shape, size, and surface texture to give it a lifelike appearance.
How Many Teeth Can I Get Veneers For?
Veneers are usually applied to the central six teeth on the upper and lower arches, with the upper teeth being most common. They are made thin to minimize how much of the tooth needs reshaping but are also sturdy and typically last for a decade or more.
Each veneer is individually crafted, so you can get as few or as many as you need. If you have a single tooth that’s chipped or severely stained, you can get a veneer specifically made for that tooth. Typically, its counterpart on the other side will also receive a veneer so that the look of your smile remains balanced. Dr. Klein is careful to evaluate your smile and discuss your goals to achieve the desired results.
Do Veneers Harm Your Teeth?
To place a veneer, our dentist must reshape a thin layer of enamel, which creates the surface texture needed to bond the veneer securely. However, very little of the enamel is removed, and when done well, this treatment won’t cause any harm to your healthy tooth. Once in place, the veneer becomes a part of your tooth, providing protection from decay and everyday wear.
If the enamel is already thin, there may not be enough to safely remove for veneer treatment. In these cases, Dr. Klein will discuss whether alternatives, such as dental bonding or crowns, would be better options for you.
Professional Teeth Whitening You Can Do at Home
There’s no denying the appeal of a bright, beautiful smile! While we all start out with vibrant white teeth, daily exposure to staining foods and drinks will gradually cause enamel to become dingy and discolored. Fortunately, with professional teeth whitening, you can refresh your smile to look like new!
Our office provides Opalescence® Go, a customized whitening kit you can use conveniently at home. All it takes is a short visit to our office, where we take impressions of your teeth and use them to create a personalized set of whitening trays. The precise fit of the trays ensures that the whitening gel will spread evenly across all teeth.
Each kit is equipped with professional-strength whitening gel, giving you powerful whitening and high-quality results. You can use the kit when and where it’s convenient for you – perfect for brightening your smile before an important event. Since the trays are yours to keep, you can easily grab a new supply of gel during your routine visits. You’ll be able to whiten your smile in time for any special occasion, so you’ll always feel at your best.
We also offer specials on whitening treatments! If you are an established patient and getting married, you can receive a free set of pre-filled disposable whitening trays. If you participate in our SIA Plan there are even more specials!
Gum Contouring with Dental Lasers
Your teeth aren’t the only part of your smile that affects its aesthetic. If your gums sit low on your teeth, making them appear short or bulky, you may have what’s commonly called a “gummy smile.” If you’re interested in reshaping your gum line, our practice offers gentle gum contouring with laser dentistry.
Dental lasers have become a popular tool for treatment thanks to the many benefits they offer. With laser treatment, there are no incisions or sutures. The gum tissue is reshaped easily, and the process is virtually painless. Many patients don’t feel anything during treatment, and healing time is incredibly short. The laser also allows for greater precision, making it easier to create an even, beautiful gum line.
What if My Smile Needs Repairs?
At Signature Smiles, making sure your teeth and gums are healthy is always our highest priority. Thankfully, many treatments today make it easy for us to restore your smile without giving up its visual appeal. We use a variety of high-quality materials to make each restoration look natural and flattering. Our offerings include composite, porcelain, e.max, and zirconia, and Dr. Klein will work with you to choose the best material for your particular needs.
Restorative Treatments with Cosmetic Dentistry
Our practice provides several restorations that also enhance your smile’s appearance. Which one is right for you will depend on what type of oral health problem you’re facing and your treatment goals.
Composite Fillings: These customized fillings restore a tooth affected with mild to moderate decay. The cavity is filled with the composite material, which is carefully colored to match the surrounding enamel.
Porcelain Crowns: A crown caps the tooth, encasing it in a protective layer and restoring its structure. Crowns are versatile and can treat teeth that are decayed, damaged, misshapen, or even severely discolored.
Fixed Bridges: A bridge fits over a gap of 1-3 missing teeth, replacing them with a lifelike prosthetic. Crowns on each end of the bridge are placed over neighboring teeth to secure the restoration, completing your smile and restoring your bite.
Full & Partial Dentures: Today’s dentures look more realistic than ever, using quality porcelain to fashion your replacement teeth. Full dentures can replace a complete arch, and partials can repair a portion by fitting around your remaining healthy teeth.
Dental Implants: Implants provide the most realistic tooth replacements, restoring both the root and crown of a tooth. With implants, we can replace anything from a single missing tooth to all teeth, and if you have remaining teeth, they won’t need to be altered in the process.
