What is the Importance of Cosmetic Dentistry?
A great smile can give people the confidence they need to feel good about themselves and thrive within the world. It can even help the way that other people perceive them, enhancing their chances of both personal and professional success. According to a survey conducted by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, 92% of people believe that an attractive smile is an important social asset. Because we know the importance of a great smile, we offer our patients a broad range of treatments that can help straighten, brighten, and perfect their smiles.
For individuals with teeth that are slightly crooked or misaligned, Invisalign® is an excellent way to straighten and correct their smiles without the need for uncomfortable braces. While braces use fixed brackets and wires to adjust the position of teeth, Invisalign® slowly guides them into a new position using a series of clear retainers.
For patients that only have a few damaged teeth that they would like to repair, porcelain crowns are a convenient treatment option. These crowns can replace the entire outer layer of the tooth, creating a more pleasing overall appearance. These fixtures can help improve the color, shape, and size of teeth in order to help them better blend in with the rest of a patient’s smile.
Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are placed over the surface of teeth to improve their shape and color. These shells are a convenient and minimally invasive alternative to other more drastic and painful implants.
The color of a person’s smile is often just as important as the position of their teeth and jaw. Our laser teeth whitening procedure can correct changes in the color of a person’s smile that are the result of food, beverage, and lifestyle choices. This treatment is simple, effective, and leaves patients with a healthier, cleaner, more radiant smile. Dr. Latha has advanced fellowship training in laser dentistry with the Academy of Laser Dentistry and the World Clinical Laser Institute, ensuring state-of-the-art treatment and professional results you can trust.
Porcelain Fixed Bridges
Missing teeth can be detrimental to maintaining an even, healthy-looking smile. Porcelain fixed bridges are a safe, minimally invasive way to replace missing teeth with beautiful-looking veneers. In addition to improving the look of the patient’s smile, these devices can also make activities like eating and speaking easier.
