What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a specific field of dentistry with a focus on making your teeth look sparkling and new. Your cosmetic dentist matches their restorative work with your teeth’s natural color, allowing the extra work to blend in. Improving your teeth’s appearance often boosts your oral health as well, by making teeth straighter and easier to clean. All dentistry should be cosmetic dentistry to some degree. Restorative work should both look good and increase your self-confidence.

What cosmetic dentistry procedures can I find at The Shores Dental?

We specialize in the following procedures:

  • Composite fillings: Our mercury-free fillings are made of a resin material that blends perfectly with your teeth, with a durability that lasts for years. This material can also incorporate fluoride to treat the targeted area.
  • Invisalign: A comfortable, convenient alternative to braces, Invisalign consists of a series of clear plastic aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. Invisalign offers the benefits of braces without the need for installation of brackets and wires.
  • Porcelain Veneers: These thin shells of resin or ceramic are bonded to your teeth’s surface, giving them a sparkling new look. Veneers are particularly effective on the front teeth.
  • Bonding: Similar to fillings, bonding uses resin materials to fix more serious cosmetic issues with your teeth, such as cracks, chips, signs of visible decay, and discoloration. They can also resculpt a tooth’s appearance by restoring missing or decayed portions.
  • Full Mouth Restoration: If you have multiple issues with cracked or decayed teeth, consider this holistic approach to fully restore your teeth’s appearance. We use a combination of veneers, crowns, bridges, and other procedures as needed to give you the best possible smile.

At The Shores Dental, we pursue an individualized approach, customizing treatment for each patient based on their needs. We work closely with you to set goals and create a treatment program to achieve them.
