If you have what is known as a gummy smile, it can often be embarrassing or
cause you to experience oral health problems (i.e., gum disease, tooth
decay). Fortunately, there is a way to not only minimize the potential risk
but also create a more even gum line. By using a soft tissue laser, we can
easily remove unnecessary tissue, creating a balanced aesthetic that looks
beautiful and allows for greater oral health in the long run.
When minor imperfections keep your smile from looking its best, you may not
wish to pursue advanced solutions like veneers. Instead, you may prefer
something milder yet effective. This is where cosmetic bonding is a safe and
noteworthy solution. Using composite resin that can be color-matched to your
natural tooth color, this malleable substance is shaped and sculpted
directly onto the enamel. Once the area is completely covered, a
professional light hardens the resin to create a beautiful, flawless smile.
Are you looking to straighten your teeth once and for all? Prefer to move
forward with a solution that doesn’t require bulky metal brackets and
wires? With Invisalign clear aligners, you can easily enjoy your orthodontic
experience without compromising your daily appearance. Because of their
sleek and virtually invisible look, they fit snug against your teeth and
apply gentle, continuous pressure to shift your teeth in the right
direction. Not to mention, in many cases, patients can be finished with
Invisalign much quicker than with traditional metal braces.
Do you have one or more teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained,
discolored, misshapen, or have a gap between them? Fixing these problems can
often become costly, especially if you’re trying to address more than
one specific problem. The good news is that with porcelain veneers, you can
expect beautiful results that can last a decade or longer with proper care.
Placed in just two visits to the dentist’s office, it also
doesn’t take long to achieve your desired look.
Oftentimes, when stains and discoloration appear, they aren’t just
confined to the enamel layer. They can penetrate deep into the dentin layer
of your teeth, making it increasingly more difficult to remove.
Over-the-counter products often don’t contain the same high-quality
ingredients, which is why we offer professional teeth whitening. Whether you
choose in-office or at-home whitening trays, you can expect to see
tremendous results. For an in-office treatment, you can expect it to take
about one hour. For at-home whitening kits, it will likely take two weeks
before noticing substantial results.
If you are looking to completely transform your smile’s appearance
without undergoing multiple complex dental treatments, we have the solution
for you. With our Snap-On Smile that is made from durable resin, you can
expect to see a new and improved, damage-free smile that can last three to
five years with proper care. It simply slides on over your natural teeth and
snaps into place. In just two appointments, you will have impressions taken
and your new smile fitted to ensure maximum comfort.
An incomplete smile can leave you feeling embarrassed and hopeless. Whether
you are missing multiple teeth, combatting tooth decay, or struggling with
severe discoloration, you can begin to see a new and improved smile with the
help of full-mouth reconstruction. Once our team creates a personalized
treatment plan, we will go over the various options to choose from and
create a model of what your new smile will look like. Depending on the
complexity of your treatment, your dentist will provide you with a realistic
timeline for completion.
Frequently Asked Questions – Cosmetic Dentistry
Are you ready to transform your smile and boost your self-confidence with
cosmetic dentistry? Maybe you are, but you have a few minor concerns that
must be addressed first. Don’t worry; it’s totally natural to
have a few questions. That’s why we’ve assembled and answered
some of the most common ones in the following section. If you don’t
see the answer to your question, just
call Fort Dental
and we’ll be more than happy to help!
How Much Does Cosmetic Dentistry Cost?
There is no average cost of getting cosmetic dental work done. Several
different factors influence the price of your treatment, including the type
of smile flaws you’d like to correct. It’s worth mentioning that
quick and easy services like bonding and teeth whitening typically cost
less, while more personalized and longer-lasting services like veneers tend
to cost a bit more. Ultimately, when it comes to cosmetic dentistry, you get
what you pay for.
During your consultation, your cosmetic dentist can develop a customized
price estimate to give you an idea of how much it will cost to attain your
Can I Use My Dental Insurance?
Because many cosmetic services are considered elective procedures, most
dental insurance carriers won’t cover them. However, certain
treatments may toe the line into orthodontics or restorative dentistry,
which are often partially covered. Our staff would love to take a look at
your policy and find out how much coverage you’re entitled to.
I Want to Fix My Smile. Where Do I Start?
If your smile has so many imperfections that you’re not sure where to
begin, it can feel a little overwhelming. Luckily, your dentist has plenty
of experience with helping patients revamp their smiles. The first step in
the process is picking up the phone and giving us a call. Our team can take
it from there. We’ll examine your smile and come up with a fully
personalized treatment plan to give you the beautiful set of pearly whites
Do I Need Orthodontic Treatment?
Crooked teeth can make even the most confident person feel a little bit
self-conscious sometimes. Not to mention, they’re often harder to
clean and can lead to teeth grinding and TMJ disorder. Straightening your
teeth can bring oral health benefits as well as a more attractive smile.
However, you don’t have to wear a mouthful of metal brackets and wires
to align your teeth. We offer Invisalign so you can straighten your smile
with transparent trays that you wear over your teeth. Additionally, we offer
Snap-On Smile, which uses high-quality dental resin to instantly transform
your entire top row of teeth.
