Popular Types of Cosmetic Dentistry

You’ve finally decided it’s time to give your smile the makeover that it needs. But what cosmetic treatment aligns best with your Cosmetic Dentistry dental goals? Your San Tan Valley cosmetic dentist offers a full range of cosmetic dentistry services to accommodate your individual needs and budget. Take a look at some of our most popular options, and how they can improve your smile!

Dental Bonding

If you are looking for a non-invasive and conservative way to make small changes to your smile then dental bonding could be right for you. Dental bonding can hide severe stains, chips, cracks, minor gaps and overlapping.

We first apply a tooth-colored resin to the problem areas and mold the putty-like material to the tooth. Once we have the proper shape we will use a laser to harden the resin to change the shape and look of your tooth permanently.

Teeth Whitening

For those looking to get a brighter smile from teeth whitening, in-office teeth whitening in San Tan Valley can get smiles up to 10 shades whiter in just one session. Our highly concentrated bleaching agent is applied to the teeth and a laser is directed at your smile to activate the gel.

Each gel session takes about 15 minutes, after which we will remove the gel and reapply another layer. Three gel applications are performed during one visit, so you can get a noticeably whiter smile in just 45 minutes.

Dental Veneers

If you are looking to hide more moderate to severe stains, chips, overlapping, crookedness or spacing between teeth that dental bonding can’t fix, then dental veneers can help. These thin porcelain shells go over the front of your teeth using dental cement that we harden with a laser.

This cosmetic treatment is minimally invasive and doesn’t require anesthesia; however, we will remove a trace amount of tooth enamel prior to applying the veneers, so the procedure is considered irreversible.

Dental Implants

If you are missing one, several or all of your teeth, dental implants can replace your smile. These screw-like metal posts are surgically placed into the jawbone where your missing tooth once was. Then a metal abutment is attached to the top of the implant. This abutment serves as a connector from which to hold an artificial tooth. A dental crown is then cemented to the abutment to complete your smile. While this process does take several months and can be costly, the benefits that patients receive with dental implants over other cosmetic treatments are well worth it.

If you are interested in any of these cosmetic dental treatments then contact your San Tan Valley cosmetic dentist at Ocotillo Trails Family Dentistry, PLLC. Let us give you the smile you’ve been hoping for.
