woman pointing to her teethDo you often find yourself focusing on your imperfect teeth when you look in the mirror? Do you frequently hide your mouth when smiling or taking a picture? You don’t need to live with the weight of your insecurities. You can invest in the beautiful smile you deserve with cosmetic dentistry in Farmington. Depending on the complexity of your aesthetic concerns and your overall goals, you may need one or more procedures to achieve your dream smile.

Teeth Whitening

Not everyone has a naturally bright smile because of genetics. Age, lifestyle factors, and other issues can also cause your teeth to look yellow or brown. This can make you look several years older than your true age. You don’t need to feel self-conscious any longer. You can get your teeth as much as 8 shades brighter after just one office treatment. If you prefer, you can also achieve in-office results around your own schedule with a take-home kit. Whitening treatments can be used alone or with other cosmetic procedures, like veneers.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are thin shells bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth to improve their overall color, size, and shape. They are often recommended for people who have several aesthetic concerns because they can fix multiple issues using one treatment, like chips, discoloration, or gaps. This can prevent needing various treatments to reach your desired results.

Veneers can be used alone or with other cosmetic treatments, like crowns or dental implants. It’s often best to have your veneers and restorations placed at the same time to enjoy a more seamless look. Since veneers are now made of porcelain, they are thinner, so less of your enamel is removed during the bonding process. You’ll enjoy a less invasive procedure while achieving your picture-perfect smile quicker.

Porcelain Crowns

Metal crowns don’t need to cause an eyesore when you smile because you have another option. Porcelain crowns are made of all-ceramic material and can be customized to match your natural tooth. No one will know it’s there to restore its health, function, or appearance.

Crowns are routinely used with other treatments. Besides cosmetic purposes, they can also be used with many restorative procedures, like a bridge or root canal. You’ll invest in a healthy, beautiful smile that lasts.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings are a biocompatible alternative to amalgam restorations. A composite resin material is used to treat the decay. This allows it to be used to match the color of your enamel to blend in with your teeth. Often, the treatment can be used along with other procedures, including cosmetic bonding.
