What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry helps correct aesthetic dental problems like tooth discoloration, chipped teeth, broken teeth, and tooth gaps. These cosmetic treatments improve the look of your teeth so you can smile with confidence.
Are there different treatments in cosmetic dentistry?
There is a wide range of cosmetic dentistry treatments offered by Dr. Ortale, including:
Dental crowns are cap-like restorations that fit directly over your teeth to cover up imperfections, such as tooth decay, extreme tooth discoloration, damaged teeth, a more. Not only do dental crowns restore the appearance of your smile, but they also strengthen and protect it. These restorations, which are available in several different dental materials, act as barriers to keep bacteria away from your damaged tooth and restore your tooth’s shape and size.
Dental veneers are extremely thin resin or porcelain shells that change the shape, shade, size, and length of your teeth. They are custom-made to fit your teeth perfectly, becoming a seamless addition to your smile. Dr. Ortale recommends veneers to patients with tooth discoloration, damaged teeth due to grinding, a cracked tooth, a weak tooth, and more.
If you have a missing tooth, a dental bridge literally bridges the gap to repair your smile. A traditional bridge is created using two anchoring teeth, called abutment teeth, to securely hold a pontic, also known as a false tooth, in place. A dental bridge restores your ability to chew and smile without discomfort, and it helps keep your natural facial structure.
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular, least expensive cosmetic treatments in dentistry. Dr. Ortale offers teeth whitening services to all of his patients above the age of 15 and uses custom whitening trays to provide the most dramatic results. To remove deep stains and maintain your bright, white smile, Dr. Ortale recommends Opalescence® products.
Can I get more than one cosmetic treatment?
Dr. Ortale knows that no two smiles are the same. What works for one patient might not have the same impact on another. That’s why he tailors his individualized treatment plans to suit each unique case. For many patients, this may mean implementing more than one cosmetic treatment, such as teeth whitening and dental crowns, or veneers and a dental bridge.
As a longtime dentist, Dr. Ortale is committed to creating your perfect smile, using any treatments necessary to achieve that goal. For a full list of the cosmetic treatments available, call Kevin Ortale, DDS, PLC, or book an appointment online today.
