Our Cedar Mill area cosmetic dentist believes that the services he offers have the power to change your life. While the term cosmetic is often seen in a negative light, the truth is that the effect cosmetic treatments have on patients are incredible. They change the way they see themselves, which changes the way that others see them. And this has the ability to change their work life, social life, and more. Below are some of the cosmetic treatments we offer.
Restorative treatments are those that replace missing or damaged teeth. In many cases, these treatments are cosmetic. However, there are cases where these treatments are needed to better the health of the patient. Some of the restorative treatments we offer include the following:
Teeth whitening can be done in one of two ways: at home with a kit or in our office with a special light. Both options are completely safe and are an easy way to change your look. The at-home option takes longer, but is subtler. The in-office option is completed in about an hour and delivers dramatic results.
Veneers are like placing a cover on your teeth. You can opt for porcelain or composite veneers. The dentist will adhere the veneers to the front of your teeth, masking any imperfections that hide beneath. These can be used to mask anything from chips to discoloration to gaps between the teeth.
Invisalign is a system of clear, plastic trays that place force on your teeth to move them into place. It is usually considered a cosmetic treatment because the problems it corrects are rarely big enough to cause health problems. Invisalign allows you to get the smile you want without anyone ever knowing you are in treatment.
