Dental Veneers: Conceal Your Smile Flaws
When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, dental veneers are one of the most often requested treatments. That’s because with one procedure, you can completely change the look of your smile.
Dental veneers are sort of like press-on artificial fingernails. You’d apply artificial fingernails to change the color or shape of your natural fingernails. Well, dental veneers work the same way. They’re thin but durable pieces of porcelain or composite material that are bonded to the fronts of your teeth to conceal your dental imperfections. This includes:
- Broken, chipped, or fractured teeth
- Misshapen or worn down teeth
- Minor misalignment issues
- Small gaps between teeth
Dental veneers are a favorite procedure of celebrities because it’s so easy to get a flawless smile. And because cosmetic dentistry has become increasingly popular and accessible over the years, you can enjoy the fabulous results of dental veneers for yourself.
Gum Reshaping: Improve Your Gum Line
Perhaps your smile insecurities stem less from your teeth and more from your gums. For those with a “gummy smile” — where the tissue around the teeth dominates your grin — or an uneven gum line, it can be just as embarrassing as any other dental imperfection.
Luckily, it’s easy to adjust the gum line to bring balance to your smile. And to maximize comfort, we’re proud to offer dental sedation options! You can opt for nitrous oxide (commonly known as laughing gas) or oral sedation to help you relax throughout your procedure.
When all is said and done, you’ll have a smile you’re excited to show off!
Tooth Recontouring: Adjust The Look Of Your Teeth
Do you have an irregularly pointy tooth? Or maybe you have a tooth with a rough surface that just bothers you to no end. At Fairhope Cosmetic Dentistry, we can correct tooth irregularities with a process called tooth recontouring.
If you were contemplating dental veneers, tooth recontouring might be able to help you achieve some of the same results, depending on what your smile goals are. This procedure involves removing small amounts of enamel, which is the hard outer layer of your teeth. It might sound scary, but don’t worry! There are no nerve endings in the enamel, so it should be a comfortable procedure. Still, if you request dental sedation to help you relax, we can make that happen.
Dental Implants: Eliminate Your Smile Gaps
Missing teeth can certainly distract from an otherwise healthy and beautiful smile. But at Fairhope Cosmetic Dentistry, we can replace missing teeth with the help of dental implants. Dental implants are considered to be one of the greatest advances in dentistry in the past half-century. That’s because they allow you to replace both the root and visible crown of the missing tooth for a prosthetic that’s reliable and life-like!
A dental implant is a small titanium post, which is inserted into the bone socket of the jaw bone. That’s where the natural tooth root once stood. In time, the artificial tooth root fuses to the jaw bone. Your dental implant simply becomes a part of you, which is what accounts for the sturdiness of the prosthetic.
Your dental implant will then be topped with a dental restoration, so you no longer have to live with the hassle of a smile gap!
Start Your New Year With A Smile Makeover
Just like dying your hair or purchasing a new wardrobe, making over your smile will boost your confidence. But unlike those things, you’ll be able to enjoy the results of a smile makeover for years to come. After all, a beautiful smile never goes out of style!
