Our patients choose cosmetic dental procedures/surgery for various reasons—to repair a defect such as a malformed bite or crooked teeth, treat an injury, or just improve their overall appearance. Whatever the reason, the ultimate goal is to restore a beautiful smile. For these and many other reasons, cosmetic dentistry has become a vital and important part of the dental profession here in Washington, PA. Common cosmetic dental procedures can be performed to correct misshaped, discolored, chipped or missing teeth. They also can be used to change the overall shape of teeth—from teeth that are too long or short, have gaps, or simply need to be reshaped.
Some of the more common cosmetic procedures involve:
- Bonding - You’ll be happy to hear that not all cosmetic issues require intensive cosmetic dentistry. This non-invasive technique involves using a tooth-colored resin (the same material used to fill a cavity) to mask small imperfections such as stains, cracks, chips and even gaps between teeth.
Our cosmetic dentist will apply the resin and then shape, trim, and hardened it into place with a dental laser. Bonding doesn’t require anesthesia, drilling or other invasive techniques and can often be performed during your dental cleaning.
- Teeth Whitening- If you want to brighten your smile and remove years of stains then professional teeth whitening at our Washington, PA dental office can give you the brilliant results you deserve. Whether you are planning your wedding or just looking to give yourself a little smile makeover, our cosmetic dentist can help you achieve a visibly whiter smile in often just one chairside whitening session. If you are dealing with stains caused by aging, smoking, foods or drinks, then professional teeth whitening might be right for you.
