Your smile is a reflection of your personality, your ambitions, and your self-confidence. If your teeth are chipped, loose, or cracked, it might be time for a thorough smile makeover. A cosmetic dentist is more than just a technician, using advanced restorative techniques to help their patients attain the smile they’ve always dreamed of.
What does a cosmetic dentist offer?
The most important thing that a cosmetic dentist can give you is a listening ear. If you’ve had poorly done dental work in the past, you might be wary about seeing a dentist at all. The truth is that most dental work can be undone, including crowns, veneers, and fillings.
If you have a small gap between two of your front teeth, Dr. Stillman will use composite bonding to close it. She also uses composite bonding techniques to cover chips and cracks, change the shape of teeth, or cover up discoloration. Bonding is difficult to do correctly and requires precision and artistry on the part of the dentist.
Teeth whitening is the recommended first step before getting crowns, bridges, implants, or veneers. Porcelain restorations cannot be bleached and would wind up a darker shade than the patient’s teeth. Patients can whiten their teeth at home with Opalescence Go, a hydrogen peroxide gel that is five times as strong as whitening toothpaste.
Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are placed over the patient’s teeth. They are an easy way to get a complete smile makeover and are durable if placed correctly. Dr. Stillman offers a Beautiful Smile Guarantee, which means that she will not place porcelain veneers or other dental restorations until you are completely satisfied with their color and fit.
