What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry encompasses not only the health of the teeth, but also their aesthetic value. There are several products and procedures that exist within cosmetic dentistry with the goal of improving both the well-being and appearance of the teeth, giving the individual a higher level of self-confidence. During a consultation with Dr. Hiebert & Dr. Smith, they will be able to discuss the problems that you would like to correct and suggest a treatment plan that will best achieve the results you are looking for.
Cosmetic Dental Treatments We Offer
- Porcelain Veneers
- Porcelain Crowns
- Teeth Whitening
- Dental Fillings
Porcelain crowns replace the exterior portion of a tooth to re–establish its original function and to create a natural appearance. Crowns are the treatment of choice in situations where tooth decay has destroyed most of the original tooth, when a traumatic event has caused damage, or in cases of severe enamel erosion. They are also an option for people who grind and clench their teeth so much that the original structure of their teeth has been compromised.
Porcelain veneers are effective aesthetic treatments for damaged, chipped, or stained teeth. Some veneers are designed to be removable but most are permanent and are bonded very tightly to the teeth they are protecting. The advancements in technology have improved the durability and life for veneers and in many cases can remain functional for 10 years or more.
In-Office & Take Home
White teeth are often a good indicator of good health and excellent oral hygiene. Hiebert Smith Dental Group offers two effective teeth whitening treatments. You can have your teeth whitened in our dental office or at home with an at-home teeth whitening kit.
In the past, dental cavities were filled with a mixture of metal alloys, also known as amalgam. Today, tooth-colored or composite fillings are a mixture of resin, glass or quartz and porcelain ceramics. These materials are resilient and long lasting.
Invisalign® Clear Braces
Invisalign is the clear alternative to metal braces. It is a breakthrough technology that straightens teeth with a series of clear, virtually invisible, custom-molded aligners. These aligners replace the wires and brackets of the past.
