Who is Cosmetic Dentistry For?
If you’ve always thought that cosmetic dentistry was only for celebrities constantly in the spotlight, nothing could be further from the truth! Cosmetic dentistry comes in many levels, and can help anyone address imperfections in their smile.
Many people dislike something about their smile, but convince themselves that it is either too trivial or too difficult to fix. However, being happy with your smile comes with numerous benefits, from a boost in confidence to more positive social and career opportunities.
Trying to decide if cosmetic dentistry is right for you? Consider these questions:
- Do you like the way your smile looks in the mirror?
- Do you cringe at the color of your teeth?
- Are you bothered by a tooth gap?
- Do chips, cracks, or missing teeth hold you back from smiling?
- If you could change one thing about your smile, what would it be?
Cosmetic Smile Enhancements We Provide
We love helping our patients achieve a smile they can feel proud of, and provide a wide variety of comprehensive services to deliver the best results. Our cosmetic services include:
Teeth Whitening for a Dynamic Smile
It’s common for teeth to become stained over time. Years of exposure to staining substances, such as dark foods and drinks or tobacco, can conceal your natural enamel and leave your teeth noticeably discolored.
When you’re unhappy with the color of your smile, professional teeth whitening can produce astonishing results. This treatment lifts years of set-in stains from your enamel, revealing the true color hidden underneath.
Is Professional Teeth Whitening Effective?
We provide teeth whitening that uses a professional-strength gel, which delivers the most potent whitening possible in a single session. Depending on the level of discoloration, professional whitening can brighten your smile by as much as eight shades.
What are My Options?
Our office provides two choices when it comes to teeth whitening: in-office whitening and take-home whitening kits. There are benefits to each, and deciding which is right for you is simply a matter of choosing the one that best suits your needs and lifestyle.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
When you visit our office for whitening, we’ll talk you through the process and show you where your teeth rank on a color chart so you can accurately track your results.
Your treatment is monitored by a dental professional from start to finish, which helps to ensure your comfort and minimize any sensitivity. We make sure the whitening gel is evenly distributed across your entire smile to achieve the best possible result.
A single session takes about an hour to complete, and you’ll be able to see immediately what your results are. Your new, bright smile will be ready to wear to any big event, job interview, or simply to enjoy throughout your daily life.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening Kits
If your schedule makes extended office visits inconvenient, a take-home kit can still deliver great results while fitting neatly into your lifestyle. A shorter office visit is all that’s needed to take impressions that we use to craft your custom whitening trays.
Each kit contains custom trays and professional-strength whitening gel, with a special applicator to keep the process clean and simple. You can use the kit to whiten your teeth when and where it’s most convenient for you. These kits are great for flexible whitening, and you can also use them for convenient touchups before an important occasion.
How Long Will It Last?
Professional teeth whitening lifts stains that have built up over the years, essentially resetting your smile to its natural state. While the difference can be dramatic, it sadly isn’t permanent. Over time, the same factors can cause teeth to become discolored again.
In most cases, it takes years for teeth to develop stains, though frequent exposure to staining substances can speed up the process. To help your teeth whitening treatment to last as long as possible, we recommend limiting your consumption of foods and drinks like coffee, soda, and tomato sauce, and cutting out tobacco use entirely. Your six-month cleanings will also help your smile stay bright and fresh.
Can Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening Be Just as Good?
There are multiple whitening products available in stores and online, from toothpaste to whitening strips and even gel kits. However, while these products use the same active ingredients as our whitening services, the concentration is much lower. This means you would have to whiten more frequently to achieve the same result.
Not only can this become tedious, but it also puts you at risk of over-whitening. Too much whitening in a short period can cause teeth to become sensitive, weaken enamel, and even leave teeth permanently discolored. Overall, these products can be good for touch-ups or routine maintenance, but if you want visible results, professional whitening is the safer and more effective choice.
CEREC® Crowns for Quality and Convenience
Teeth that are damaged, discolored, or misshapen no longer have to be detrimental to your smile thanks to same-day crowns with CEREC. Our office relies on this innovative technology to help you achieve a healthier smile in only a single visit!
Should I Get a Crown?
Crowns are one of the most versatile dental treatments available, capable of both protecting and visually enhancing your smile. Here are some of the ways a crown could benefit your smile:
- Protect teeth from decay and damage.
- Stabilize teeth with cracks, fractures, or damage.
- Improve bite by altering small, worn, or misshapen teeth.
- Boost a tooth’s aesthetic appeal.
- Replace a tooth by completing a dental implant.
- Protecting a tooth with a large filling, especially after root canal therapy.
Are Crowns Permanent?
Crowns are designed to withstand daily use, and can last for years, even decades, if well cared for. However, no crown can last forever. Eventually, your dental crown will need replacing.
Fortunately, we can simplify this process thanks to our CEREC machine. We take a 3D image of your tooth after removing the crown, then send it to the machine which crafts your custom crown right in our office from high-grade ceramic material. In a matter of hours, Dr. Beye can place and adjust your new crown, allowing you to walk out with a complete and healthy smile.
The Benefits of CEREC One-Visit Crowns
CEREC crowns can be designed, prepared, and placed in the span of a single office visit. This offers numerous advantages to your smile, making it easy to see why so many patients are impressed and delighted by this technology.
With a same-day crown, there’s no need for multiple visits. Since the crown is milled in our office, it’s ready for placement within hours of your original tooth scan and preparation.
Not only does the 3D scan ensure a comfortable fit for your crown, but it requires no messy putty for the impression.
The CEREC machine uses high-quality ceramic material that closely mimics the shape, shade, luster, and durability of your natural teeth.
Same-day crowns eliminate the need for additional costs, including the dental lab, temporary crowns, and multiple office visits.
Veneers Create a Brand New Look
When your smile needs an aesthetic boost, but a crown may be too much, veneers offer the perfect middle ground. Each veneer is a custom-made ceramic shell designed to fit over a tooth, effectively concealing any dental imperfections.
What Can Veneers Fix?
Veneers are effective at addressing a wide number of issues, including:
- Crooked teeth
- Chips, cracks, and broken teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Teeth worn down by grinding
- Teeth that are too small or misshapen
- Permanent discoloration
Dental Implants Complete Your Smile
With dental implant placement from Dr. Beye, your missing teeth don’t have to be a drain on your health and confidence. We use high-grade materials combined with skill and years of experience to ensure that your dental implants look great, function well, and last for years to come.
Who Should Get Dental Implants?
If you’re missing teeth, you will likely be a great candidate for dental implants. Dr. Beye provides thorough evaluations to determine whether you qualify, examining the number of lost teeth, their location, the biting pressure applied to the tooth, and the thickness of the jawbone that will support it.
Jawbone density is one of the most important factors when it comes to placing implants. Since each implant is placed in and fuses with the bone, a strong jaw is necessary to provide the support an implant needs. Without this support, the implant is likely to fail.
If your jaw is weakened by bone loss, gum disease, or other health issues, Dr. Beye will look for the best treatment to improve your oral health, such as bone grafting, before proceeding with dental implant placement.
3 Advantages of Dental Implants
Dental implants have become one of the most popular methods for replacing teeth thanks to their numerous benefits. Here are three ways dental implants can improve your health and aesthetic.
Dental implants support high-quality restorations designed to look natural and appealing within your smile.
Dental implants hold restorations in place, so there’s no risk of slipping or coming out of place.
Implant-supported restorations don’t require altering your other teeth in any way, and they also protect your healthy alignment and jawbone strength.
The Dental Implant Process
Dr. Beye takes the time to tailor your treatment, so no two experiences are the same. However, here’s what you can generally expect from dental implant placement at our office.
Consultation & Planning: First, Dr. Beye sits down with you to discuss what you want to achieve with your smile. He examines your oral health to determine whether implants are indeed the best choice for your situation. Once you’ve decided on your treatment, he evaluates your structure to determine how many implants are needed, where to place them, and what kind of restoration the implants should support.
Placing Implants: Placing the implants requires precision and skill to ensure the best results. Each implant is inserted carefully into the jaw to provide optimal support for the restoration and ensure successful treatment.
Healing: Once the implant post is placed, a healing period is needed to allow the gums and bone to recover. During this period, the bone fuses to the titanium post, making any implant a permanent part of your smile.
Placing Restorations: Finally, the implants are ready to support your custom restoration. Dr. Beye fits the restoration securely in place, and it now appears as a natural part of your smile. You can eat, speak, bite, and smile with confidence thanks to your new lifelike restoration.
Smile Reconstruction Transforms Your Smile
For those with more complex cosmetic issues, Dr. Beye provides comprehensive smile reconstruction. Sometimes, you may have an issue in your smile that a single cosmetic treatment alone can’t cover. To help you achieve your ideal smile, our dentist combines cosmetic treatments into a tailored plan designed around your situation and personal needs.
With smile reconstruction, even the most complex aesthetic needs can be completely transformed. From simple whitening to restoring missing teeth, Dr. Beye evaluates your needs and educates you on your options. We always consider conservative treatment first, looking for what will be the most effective while still preserving your healthy, natural smile.
