ABOUT COSMETIC DENTISTRY PROCEDURES
Smile rejuvenation and the new “smile lift” can be achieved through cosmetic dentistry. A smile lift softens the lines and creases on one’s face. Thanks to advances in modern dental materials and techniques, Dr. Mangot can help you attain the smile you always wanted. The brightness of your smile may be adversely affected by certain foods and beverages that can stain your teeth, such as tobacco products, coffee, tea, red wine, colored juice and soda, and minerals in well water. The contour, color, and alignment of your teeth can be changed by such cosmetic techniques as bleaching, bonding, veneers, and inlays.
One of the most versatile procedures in all of cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers may be just the esthetic solution you are looking for to achieve that rejuvenated smile. A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is used to dramatically change teeth’s position, size, color, and shape. Porcelain veneers are laid over your own teeth to mask any problems, resulting in a beautiful, natural smile. This mode of treatment is considered a minimally invasive one, meaning that this is accomplished in a comfortable, pain free way. That smile that you have been dreaming of can be created in as few as two appointments using porcelain veneers.
NATURAL COLORED FILLINGS
Porcelain and composite fillings were created as an alternative to metal fillings (like amalgam). They are bonded to the tooth, which helps to strengthen it. Composite restorations, porcelain inlays, and porcelain onlays usually require the removal of less tooth structure than metal fillings, allowing you to keep more of your natural tooth. This technology allows you to replace old fillings, or place new fillings, in a conservative, cosmetic manner.
There are several ways to safely lighten the color of your teeth through vital tooth bleaching. ZOOM 2 offers you the opportunity to significantly lighten your natural teeth in just one hour! Some patients use this as a “jump start” and continue lightening their teeth at home with custom home bleaching systems. All are effective and safe.
A great way to ” test out ” your new smile is to have Dr. Mangot fabricate the Snap-On Smile. With just a few impressions and a picture, we can create a new smile for you prior to any restorative treatment plan we have established. Snap-On Smile is also an affordable way to improve your smile.
