Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of oral health care used to improve the physical appearance of your teeth, gums, and smile. These treatments usually aren’t necessary to improve your oral health, but they can help you feel more attractive and confident.
Cosmetic dentistry can safely address common issues like crooked, stained, or crowded teeth, transforming your smile and your self-esteem.
At Edgewater Dental, Dr. Sajadi offers several types of cosmetic dentistry, including:
Teeth whitening uses medical-grade solutions to whiten and brighten your teeth. Dr. Sajadi offers both Philips Zoom! in-office teeth whitening and take-home whitening trays with professional whitening gel.
Philips Zoom! can deliver a smile that’s 8* shades whiter within one hour. Take-home whitening trays can provide similarly stunning results, but this option brightens your smile at your own pace.
If you have crooked, crowded, or misaligned teeth, you might benefit from orthodontic treatment with Invisalign. Invisalign uses a series of clear, plastic aligners to gradually straighten and reposition your teeth. It’s just as effective as traditional braces but much more comfortable and discreet.
Crowns are a type of oral prosthetic used to cover a chipped, cracked, or decaying tooth. A crown prevents further damage while restoring your tooth’s shape, size, and appearance. With proper care, crowns can last 10-15 years.
Bridges are oral prosthetics that fill a gap in your smile caused by a missing tooth. There are several types of dental bridges, but the most common is the traditional bridge. A traditional bridge has one false tooth and two crowns. Dr. Sajadi bonds the crowns to your two abutment teeth on either side of the gap.
Dental implants are small metal posts that provide a sturdy foundation for oral prosthetics like crowns, bridges, or implant-supported dentures. Dr. Sajadi places the implants into your gum line. Your bone grows around each post, fusing them to your jaw.
Veneers are thin, tailor-made shells of porcelain, ceramic, or composite resin. They attach to the front of your natural teeth, improving the appearance of your smile. To achieve a balanced, Hollywood-worthy smile, Dr. Sajadi typically recommends six or eight veneers.
If there are several things you’d like to change about your smile, you might benefit from full mouth rehabilitation. Full mouth rehabilitation combines the science of restorative dentistry with the aesthetics of cosmetic dentistry. It helps you achieve a healthy, attractive smile that you can be proud of.
To determine if you’ll benefit from cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Sajadi conducts an oral exam, reviews your oral health history, and asks about your goals for treatment. After gathering the necessary information, he develops a care plan that aligns with your budget and desires.
