At our office, we use professional-grade whitening agents (peroxides) to bleach away stains from your enamel. Compounds such as hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide react strongly to the presence of stains on your teeth and destroy the bonds that hold them to your enamel. We offer both in-office whitening and professional take-home whitening kits at SmileSpot. Call us today to ask us about our options or discuss your whitening needs with Dr. Pham during your next visit!
Dental bonding uses a special type of dental resin to reshape your teeth. During treatment, this putty-like resin is applied directly to your tooth, then sculpted and smoothed until it looks like a natural part of your smile. Once the shape is perfect, the resin is hardened with UV light. The result is a completely natural-looking tooth with enhanced shape and color. Dental bonding can be used to treat issues like stained, misshapen, and gapped teeth.
Enameloplasty (also called shaping and contouring) is often used alongside dental bonding. This treatment consists of gently removing a thin layer of enamel from a few of your teeth to treat imperfections like pointed, uneven, or slightly chipped teeth. The process is painless and provides you with a more appealing smile.
Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped dental prostheses made of porcelain, and they are designed to cover up the front chewing surfaces of your teeth. By doing so, veneers can hide a wide variety of cosmetic flaws including stained, crooked, uneven, misshapen, or gapped teeth. Veneers are very versatile and have a long lifespan of 15+ years. They are also minimally invasive, which makes them an ideal option if you want to improve the appearance of your smile without extensive treatment.
The most obvious benefit of cosmetic dentistry is enhanced self-esteem and confidence. You’ll feel proud of your teeth, and you won’t feel embarrassed when smiling, laughing, or speaking. Cosmetic dentistry can have more than just aesthetic benefits. These treatments can also benefit your oral hygiene, as well! Most patients are more likely to take better care of their teeth after they have invested in a proud, bright smile.
The cost of cosmetic treatment varies depending on the specific procedures required to enhance your smile. To get an accurate estimate of the cost of your treatment, schedule a consultation with Dr. Pham today. For your convenience, we offer flexible financing options to keep the cost of care within your budget.
