It is incredibly rewarding to journey with a patient through a smile makeover and see their confidence rise. After a consultation and oral exam with Dr Rick, he will review his recommendations with you and show you how he can help you achieve your perfect smile!
Popular cosmetic dentistry options
- Porcelain veneers are a thin piece of ceramic that adheres to the front of a tooth to disguise a minor imperfection. In addition to the problems mentioned above, you may want to cover the large gap between the teeth.
- Professional teeth whitening is an excellent solution for staining on your teeth due to lifestyle habits like smoking, drinking wine, and drinking coffee. The normal aging process causes discoloration of the teeth as well.
- Cosmetic crowns can preserve a cracked or decaying tooth with an attractive crown made to match the shade of your other teeth.
- Even if you did not have braces as a teenager it’s never too late to correct alignment problems. Invisalign uses specially designed transparent plastic aligners that put pressure on your teeth to move them into the desired position. Each set of aligners is designed especially for you based on your individual treatment plan.
Restorative forms of cosmetic dentistry
If you have lost a natural tooth or several teeth to disease or trauma, consider dental implants. Dr. Rick creates new tooth roots and once the new roots have fused to the existing bone, he attaches your new tooth. Patients love dental implants because they are non-removable and they restore full functionality of the mouth and jaws. Dental bonding can be an excellent option to fill teeth diagnosed with a cavity.
You deserve to look your best, and it all starts with your smile.
