Cosmetic dentistry is all about improving the appearance or aesthetics of your smile. While the focus is on aesthetics, some treatment procedures are also restorative (e.g. dental crowns, dental implant). Finding the right dentist nearby is your first step toward your smile makeover. Our Fort Lauderdale cosmetic dentist wants to partner with you to achieve your best smile. Our dentists provide a wide range of cosmetic dental procedures to correct any facet of your smile you dislike or want to improve.
How can teeth whitening improve my smile?
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry procedure in high demand. It is a quick way to refresh your smile: to whiten, brighten and give a more youthful appearance to your smile. Teeth whitening is performed at your Fort Lauderdale dentist's office, usually only requiring a single visit. Your dental hygienist first completes a thorough dental cleaning to remove any plaque, tartar and debris from your teeth. Once your dentist has done a check-up to ensure no areas of decay or infection, your dental hygienist applies a bleaching agent to remove stains and brighten your teeth noticeably brighter.
How can I straighten my teeth discreetly?
Straight teeth are not just about aesthetics, they are easier to care for. When teeth are misaligned, they can be more difficult to brush and floss and more prone to cavities. Orthodontic treatments to move and straighten teeth have come a long way in recent years. Patients no longer have to suffer with "metal mouth," but can use clear aligners to achieve straight teeth. For this reason, more and more adults are selecting clear aligners, such as Invisalign, ClearCorrect, or SmartMoves, to achieve a healthy straight smile. Most patients report once they have completed treatment with clear aligners, they feel more attractive and confident with their healthy straight smile.
How can veneers improve my smile?
Dental veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made porcelain coverings that permanently attach to the front of your teeth to change the color, size and/or shape of your teeth. Whether you have chipped, cracked, stained, or misshapen teeth, porcelain veneers can transform your smile. Veneers are also an excellent option to close gaps between teeth, known as diastema. Porcelain veneers simulate the light-reflecting quality of natural teeth giving them a natural appearance. They resist stain from drinking coffee or wine keeping your smile bright and youthful.
Dental crowns can also be used for the chipped, cracked, broken or misshapen teeth. A dental crown covers the entire tooth
Can cosmetic dentistry replace a missing tooth?
Yes, dental implants are an excellent option to replace one or more missing teeth. Your dentist in Fort Lauderdale places a titanium screw into your jawbone that will replace your missing tooth root. Once the implant has fused with your bone, a process called osteointegration, your dentist places a dental implant crown on the implant to restore both the aesthetics and the function of your smile.
Dental bridge is another treatment option for replacing one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge replaces a missing tooth or teeth by placing crowns on either side of the gap and attaching another crown to replace the missing tooth. A bridge is one solid prosthetic that is permanently cemented in place to restore both the aesthetics of your smile as well as the function of your bite.
