How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Help Me?
Can Cooper cosmetic dentists improve my smile ?
From small changes to major smile makeovers, your Gilbert cosmetic dentists have a large variety of cosmetic procedures that can drastically improve your smile!
We have many techniques and options to treat your discolored teeth, chipped teeth, and even misshapen and/or missing teeth! Our Gilbert cosmetic dentists can reshape your teeth, fill gaps between teeth, restore your worn or short teeth to their original length (or longer) or alter your teeth's length entirely.
Common procedures for our Gilbert cosmetic dentists include:
- Bleaching (Tooth Whitening)
- Veneers (Porcelain) and Lumineers
- Dentures (Full and Partial)
- Dental Implants
Often, in addition to creating a perfect smile, these improvements will improve oral problems such as your bite as well!
Bonding is tooth-colored material used to fill in gaps or change the color of teeth. Requiring a single office visit, bonding lasts several years. Bonding is more susceptible to staining or chipping than other forms of restoration. When teeth are chipped or slightly decayed, bonded composite resins may be the material of choice. Bonding also is used as a tooth-colored filling for small cavities and broken or chipped surfaces. Additionally, it can be used to close spaces between teeth or cover the entire outside surface of a tooth to change its color and shape.
Crowns, also known as caps, are used in cases where other procedures will not be effective. Crowns have the longest life expectancy of all cosmetic restorations, but are the most time consuming.
Contouring and Reshaping
Tooth reshaping and contouring, is a procedure to correct crooked teeth, chipped teeth, cracked teeth or even overlapping teeth in a single session. Tooth reshaping and dental contouring, is commonly used to alter the length, shape or position of your teeth. Contouring teeth may also help correct small problems with bite. It is common for bonding to be combined with tooth reshaping. This procedure is ideal for candidates with normal healthy teeth, but who want subtle changes to their smile. Your Cooper dentist will take X-rays to evaluate the size and location of the pulp of each tooth to ensure that there's enough bone between the teeth to support them.
