Is Cosmetic Dentistry for You?

Although many people wouldn’t count visiting the dentist among their most favorite activities, there is nothing nicer than feeling confident enough to smile. And a brilliant smile requires not just regular flossing and brushing but frequent visits to a dentist, for professional treatment of teeth and gums.  Unsightly dental flaws can negatively impact dental confidence. If the flaws you perceive about your teeth make you afraid to smile, cosmetic dentistry might be right for you. At Blue Ocean Dentistry, we aim to change your opinion about dentistry. We don’t want you to dread visiting the dentist. We want you to look forward to your preventative dental cleanings, which are designed to help keep you out of the procedure chair. 

Cosmetic dental procedures address virtually every type of dental issue: 

Teeth Whitening  

Even on less than perfect teeth, whitening brightens your smile. Professional teeth whitening procedures are better than Do-It-Yourself (DIY) whitening because professional preparations protect enamel. What’s more, professional treatments and lasts longer than Over-the-Counter versions. Even less-than-perfect teeth look better when they are white. So, once you start, you may discover you won’t want to stop there. 

Porcelain Veneers   

When porcelain veneers first appeared on the dental scene, they were obvious. Dentists created many a perfect mouth full of teeth that looked the same as every other person with veneers. Today, porcelain veneers transform smiles because they are customized according to the color and shape of the patient’s teeth. What’s more, they boast an opacity that gives them a natural look. Thin layers of porcelain are molded and bonded to the surface of healthy teeth. They help to cover many problems, including stains, cracks, chips, and mis-shapened and unaligned teeth. 

Porcelain Bridges and Crowns– No more gaps when you smile

If you were born with a gap in your teeth or had an extraction, a porcelain bridge can fill the empty space and give you proper bite alignment. Porcelain bridges are a long-term solution. But they can also be removed and replaced, if needed.

Porcelain crowns are used where teeth are too damaged, stained, or worn down for veneers. They fit over the original tooth like a cap and are made to match the color of your teeth. 

Natural Fillings – Get rid of unsightly metal 

Fillings used to be made of metal. So, they stand out when you smile. These can be replaced with tooth-colored fillings, bestowing on the wearer an even-toned and attractive smile. 

Implants – Restore missing teeth permanently

Whether you have one or more missing teeth, implants are the most permanent and aesthetically pleasing way to restore them. Teeth are implanted using a titanium screw that is surgically placed into the gum. Crowns that match your tooth color are placed on top of the screw once it adheres to the bone.
