Inspire smile envy – Columbus GA dentist discusses five popular types of cosmetic dentistry proceduresPosted by Dr. Joseph Narde & Dr. Samantha Cook
At Willow Point Dental, Dr. Narde & Dr. Cook may prescribe bleaching in the office, from the comfort of your home, or a combination of both methods. Since these products are either applied by or their application is supervised by a dental professional, you can safely use powerful whitening agents that get results. Routine cleanings at our office help to prevent staining or maintain white teeth, and we’ll discuss other ways to keep stains at bay or prolong the results from bleaching treatments.
Dental bondingModern dentists use materials that are made to mimic the natural appearance, feel, and function of healthy tooth structure. Composite resins are “replacement” tooth structure that may be used for a variety of purposes; for instance, this durable and toothlike material is great for fillings to treat cavities. Composite is prepared, molded, and affixed to natural tooth structure during bonding procedures. Bonding is a cost-effective way to correct imperfections, such as gaps between teeth. Treatment can be completed in a single visit. Preparation is limited to slightly roughening the surface of the tooth to be bonded, and applying a conditioning liquid that helps the composite bond to natural structure. Dr. Narde & Dr. Cook artistically apply applies the dental material to your tooth and shapes it to achieve your cosmetic goals, be it lengthening a short tooth, rounding out a pointy one, or closing a space.
CrownsVery poorly-shaped natural tooth structure may get “new life” with crowns made from strong yet durable porcelain. Crowns are designed to fit over prepared natural teeth, much like a cap or crown fits securely over a person’s head. This type of procedure is often restorative in nature and frequently follows root canal therapy to treat a deep infection. Crown treatment at Willow Point Dental generally involves retaining as much of the natural tooth as possible for ideal form and function.
Cosmetic orthodonticsThere are so many options to straighten your teeth! Dr. Narde & Dr. Cook offer ClearCorrect, which uses transparent aligner trays to discreetly correct crowded, crooked teeth. Even “conventional” metal braces got an upgrade. You may be a good candidate for cosmetic braces, designed with tooth-colored brackets and wires that blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
Of course, the above procedures are just a glimpse into how Willow Point Dental transforms your smile and, potentially, so much more. We also offer a range of sophisticated tooth replacement, including:
