What Are The Benefits Of Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry can help you reach your dental goals, whether you’ve never been confident about your smile or have developed issues that have left you with a less-than-perfect smile. Treatments are entirely customized to you and can help:
- Correct misshapen or chipped teeth
- Resolve yellowing or discoloration
- Straighten your teeth
- Fill in gaps
Cosmetic dentistry treatments can even include replacing old, unsightly silver fillings with more natural-looking white compositing bonded fillings. No matter which treatment is right for you, the goal of cosmetic dentistry is to help you feel more confident every time you smile.
Which Type Of Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment Do I Need?
When you come into the office of Robert A. Rees, DDS, for your cosmetic dentistry consultation, Dr. Rees has a conversation with you about your smile goals. He likes to find out what you’d like to accomplish and which issues are most concerning for you.
After examining you and taking any necessary X-rays, Dr. Rees counsels you about which cosmetic dentistry solutions may be best for your needs. Cosmetic dentistry treatment plans can include one or more of the following solutions:
- Smile Makeover
- Inlays or Onlays
- Snap-On Smile®
- Lumineers® or Veneers
- Bonding and white fillings
- Professional whitening with Philips Zoom!®
Dr. Rees proudly offers VIP amenities for all cosmetic dentistry services. Not only can you drift away with soothing music on a comfortable headrest, but you can also opt for nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or sleep dentistry solutions to help put your mind at ease.
How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Take?
It depends on your unique smile makeover plan. In-office whitening with Zoom!, for instance, can take a single office visit. Bonding and white fillings also need just one office visit.
But if you need dental appliances, such as inlays or veneers, Dr. Rees schedules you for two to three visits, since the dental lab needs time to fabricate your beautiful new smile. In these cases, it can take several weeks to complete your cosmetic dentistry treatment plan.
