Cosmetic dentistry uses whitening treatments, dental restorations, or orthodontic appliances to treat aesthetic imperfections.
Consider treatment if you go out of your way to cover your mouth when laughing or speaking. There are various cosmetic procedures that are safe, minimally invasive, and affordable. What’s more, they look natural.
Smiles for Maple Valley offers various cosmetic dentistry services, including:
Teeth whitening uses hydrogen peroxide gel (or another similar solution) to remove stains from the surfaces of your teeth. If you use tobacco or drink coffee, an in-office teeth whitening treatment can make your smile up to four shades lighter.
Veneers are shells of porcelain that your Smiles for Maple Valley provider bonds to the front of your permanent teeth. The veneers cover imperfections, like pointy or unusually shaped teeth, and last between 12-15 years with proper care.
If you chip or crack a tooth, your provider might recommend cosmetic bonding. Bonding uses tooth-colored resin to repair enamel damage. When the bonding material dries, you can bite and chew as you normally would.
Your Smiles for Maple Valley provider might recommend a smile makeover if you need extensive dental work. A smile makeover combines two or more cosmetic procedures. Typically, this type of treatment requires multiple visits spaced several weeks apart.
Clear aligners are removable oral appliances that place mild pressure on your jaw and teeth. Over time, that pressure changes their position, improving their appearance.
Smiles for Maple Valley offers clear aligners from OrthoFX™ and Invisalign®.
The type of cosmetic dentistry that will most benefit you depends on various factors, including your age, oral health history, and goals. After an oral exam, a series of digital X-rays, and a discussion of what you like and dislike about your smile, your Smiles for Maple Valley provider develops a custom care plan.
