Common cosmetic dentistry procedures available in West Palm Beach
At our practice, dental health is just as important as the beauty of a smile. We offer our West Palm Beach area patients a wide range of cosmetic dentistry procedures to help them in rejuvenating the appearance of their teeth and gums. Below is just a sampling of the common aesthetic procedures we offer in our practice:
When patients are faced with root canal therapy to save a tooth, we instead give you the option to have the extraction of the tooth and replacement with solutions such as dental implants. Dental implants used in our practice are titanium or ceramic for better biocompatibility.
Crowns are restorations that offer protection, coverage, and strength and beauty. They are common in general and cosmetic dentistry and are fabricated to look just like the natural tooth structure to integrate nicely into the smile.We are different in that we use Digital computer technology to take the images of the teeth. Gone is that gooey awful tasting impression material! And we use life like material which is metal free and biocompatible.
Replacing missing teeth can be achieved with dental bridges, porcelain restorations fabricated to replace missing teeth cosmetically and functionally. This is cemented using the adjacent teeth to support the false tooth and restore function and aesthetics to the smile.
Cosmetic restorations such as veneers have been used for many years to disguise imperfections of the smile. These thin shells are bonded over the front of a tooth to cover problem areas and are commonly used in complete smile makeovers.
Brightening the smile is done easily with our ‘take home system’ and/ or in-office Kor whitening procedure that provides effective results in one hour.
Using composite resin material which is BPA free, patients can repair teeth that are broken or unusually shaped. This material is commonly used to cover imperfections and is a more economical and faster alternative to porcelain veneers. However, this is limited to smaller defects of the tooth and is a short term solution.
Instead of using silver amalgam fillings, which are made with toxic mercury and metals, our practice uses composite resin or porcelain fillings. They are not only more aesthetic, but also safer to use in the smile.Back to Cosmetic Dentistry Page
