What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry uses whitening treatments, dental restorations, and custom oral prosthetics to improve the physical appearance of your teeth and smile. Some procedures provide the additional benefit of improved oral health. For example, by getting a dental crown, it’s possible to preserve your tooth and prevent further damage or decay.
What Services Does Cosmetic Dentistry Provide?
The team at King Centre Dental offers a variety of cosmetic dentistry services, including:
Dental Veneers and Laminates
Dental veneers and laminates are thin shells that cover oral imperfections like stains, gaps, or unusually shaped teeth. Dental veneers last an average of 12-15* years and require the removal of a thin layer of tooth enamel. Laminates aren’t as durable as veneers, but there’s no pre-prep required. As a result, they’re more affordable but easier to damage.
Teeth whitening uses FDA-approved solutions, like carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide, to remove stains from the surface of your teeth. At King Centre Dental, the team offers in-office teeth whitening and take-home teeth whitening trays.
Orthodontics is a field of dentistry that diagnoses and treats misalignments of the teeth and jaw. The team at King Centre Dental offers Invisalign® and traditional metal braces to give you a beautiful and healthy smile. Invisalign is a relatively new treatment system that provides excellent results without the metal brackets, archwires, and rubber bands of traditional metal braces. Traditional metal braces are more noticeable and may require additional hygiene care, but they are smaller, more comfortable, and faster-acting than ever before. And conventional metal braces can correct more severe cases of tooth misalignment that other orthodontic treatments cannot.
Dental implants replace your tooth roots. The implants are small titanium posts that your dentist inserts into your jaw during an outpatient procedure. Following placement, the implants integrate with your natural bone structure, providing a base for dental restorations like crowns, bridges, or fixed dentures. We place a dental crown on top of the implant, ensuring that it looks great in your smile and functions like your natural tooth.
Crowns are synthetic caps bonded to the top of a severely damaged or decaying tooth. They restore your tooth to its near-original shape and size, restoring your ability to bite and chew. And they look great – you will be hard-pressed to distinguish them from your natural teeth.
Dentures provide an excellent way to gain a brand-new, beautiful smile. They are removable prosthetics that replace some or all of your permanent teeth. They restore your bite functionality and significantly reduce the risk of potentially serious oral health problems, including gum recession and bone loss.
Full Mouth Restorations
Sometimes, a single cosmetic procedure isn’t enough to improve the appearance of your smile. A full mouth restoration combines two or more techniques to help you achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of.
What Type of Cosmetic Dental Treatment in Alexandria Will Benefit Me?
To determine the type of cosmetic dental treatment that will benefit you most, your King Centre Dental provider conducts an oral exam and asks what you like and don’t like about your smile. After gathering the necessary information and taking oral X-rays, they design a custom treatment plan to meet your needs.
