Cosmetic dentistry refers to treatments or procedures that work to improve the appearance of a person’s teeth or gums. Since your smile is one of your most important features, we believe in providing you with options that will either enhance or transform it to give you confidence and an overall healthier mouth.
Cosmetic dentistry procedures include teeth whitening, repairing chips or rough spots, reshaping teeth that do not match the others, closing gaps, filling cavities and providing you with implants. Dr. Nishimura has the expertise to perform any of the listed cosmetic procedures and more, enabling you to greet every day with the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. In addition to equipping you with a smile you are confident with, many of the procedures are in place to ensure your mouth is as healthy as possible. Whether your teeth were damaged due to an accident or you have just been unlucky in the teeth department, we can help.
It is important to note that cosmetic dentistry does not necessarily improve the function of your teeth. Cosmetic dentistry is different from orthodontic treatments; this branch of dentistry deals with abnormalities of the teeth and jaw. All of our cosmetic treatments are provided by our friendly and attentive team, and we strive to give you options in the most comfortable and convenient way possible. Below you will find information on some of the most common cosmetic dental procedures; however, if you have questions about a treatment that is not listed feel free to contact our office today, as it may be something we offer.
Teeth can either become stained or discolored due to natural reasons or outside elements. Regardless of the reason, our tooth whitening treatments are both effective and efficient and will leave you with a brighter smile you can wear with confidence. Professional in-office and at-home whitening services are both excellent options when you are interested in obtaining a whiter, brighter smile.
Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that entails a tooth-colored resin being applied and hardened with a special light. Bonding is designed to improve a person’s smile and it is one of the easiest cosmetic dental procedures. Bonding can also be used to repair a chipped, cracked or broken tooth, or to close a gap or change the shape of a tooth.
Dental veneers are custom-made shells that cover the front surface of a tooth. They are a great way for you to obtain the smile you have always wanted. They are also used to correct broken, chipped, cracked, crooked or misshapen teeth. Veneers are made out of porcelain and are durable, resistant to staining and provide you with a natural look.
Enamel shaping changes the configuration of your teeth to improve their outward appearance. This procedure is typically used to fix minor imperfections, such as uneven or overcrowded teeth.
Braces are a common treatment for crooked or misaligned teeth. They can also improve an individual’s overall oral health and smile, and are used on both adults and children. Braces are designed to apply steady pressure over time to the specific teeth in need of correction or alignment.
The above procedures and treatments are some of the most common within the cosmetic branch of dentistry. If you have any questions or need to schedule one of these procedures today, please feel free to contact our office today to get started.
