Are you not satisfied with the appearance of your smile? Are unsightly stains, dullness, crookedness, misalignment, etc., make you feel inhibited to smile before others? Cosmetic dentistry may be the answer you are looking for.
Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of a person's smile. A wide range of cosmetic procedures are available to correct problems, such as gaps between the teeth, misaligned teeth, and chipped, broken, or misshapen teeth. At Harbor Dental, we offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry services to help our patients achieve their smile goals and get the smile they always wanted.
There are many cosmetic dental techniques to help patients achieve a beautiful, dazzling smile. By having teeth that are straight and white, patients can have a beautiful smile that is easy to care for and makes them feel great.
Teeth whitening can brighten your smile in several shades and is an ideal cosmetic treatment before a special occasion or event. Teeth whitening is most effective on teeth that are completely healthy. However, if you have cavities or minor dental issues, teeth whitening can exacerbate these issues. Discolored teeth can also be caused by certain medications and dental conditions. It’s important to talk to your dentist Fort Collins CO about teeth whitening before beginning the procedure.
Cosmetic veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored materials customized and bonded to the front of teeth to create a beautiful, healthy smile. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility. Unlike dental crowns, they do not cover the entire tooth.
Dental bonding is a quick and effective way to repair or replace small parts of a tooth. This treatment involves a tooth-colored composite resin material being applied to the tooth, shaped, hardened, and polished. Bonding can make teeth look natural and healthy, and can last for many years.
If you’ve lost a tooth, you’re not alone. While dentures and bridges are options, many people find that dental implants are a much better solution.
Dental implants are small titanium posts that are embedded in your jaw bone. An artificial tooth is then attached to these implants, restoring your smile and your bite. Dental implants are permanent, and with proper care, they can last decades. In fact, many patients find that their implants feel more natural than their own teeth.
Orthodontic treatments are used to straighten the teeth and correct any bite issues. Braces consist of brackets and wires that attach to each tooth. The brackets are bonded to the front of the teeth and the wires are threaded through them to apply pressure. Braces use gentle pressure to move teeth into proper alignment.
When people have an uneven gum line, it can make them self-conscious about their appearance. The gum line can be raised or lowered, and reshaped, to achieve a beautiful smile.
Invisalign® is another popular cosmetic treatment. Instead of moving or removing teeth, Invisalign® uses a series of clear, custom-made aligners to shift the teeth into alignment. Invisalign® aligners are removable and virtually invisible, so patients can straighten their teeth without anyone knowing.
