A person’s smile is a big part of their overall look, and those with crooked or problem teeth can feel a great deal of insecurity when it comes to having a confident and happy appearance. Cosmetic dentistry can help any person get their smile back on track, and give them back the confidence they deserve each time they talk to a person and make a good impression! From teeth whitening to fixing broken or chipped teeth, cosmetic dental procedures provide a way for anyone to have the smile they have always dreamed of with no pain and minimal inconvenience!
One of the most common types of cosmetic dental procedures we perform here at Island Dental Associates is teeth whitening. Teeth can lose their clean white color for a variety of reasons ranging from diet to age, and an off-color smile is one that leaves many discouraged. Teeth whitening is a non-surgical procedure that is painless and safe, and patients can begin seeing results in as little as a single visit to the office. Depending on the color of the teeth, and the desired shade of white, different methods may be taken to whiten the teeth sufficiently for each patient.
The replacement of silver or off-colored fillings with tooth colored or white fillings is another form of cosmetic dentistry that we perform, and this helps patients to have less noticeable fillings as well as a more natural looking tooth structure. In previous years, nearly all fillings were a dark silver color, much different than the natural white color of teeth, and these filled areas become very noticeable within the mouth when the material used to fill the tooth does not match the color of the tooth structure itself. At Island Dental Associates, we take out these silver colored fillings and replace them with a white filling material to leave even filled teeth looking natural and healthy!
We perform a vast array of different cosmetic procedures, and filling replacements and teeth whitening treatments are just small parts of what we do in terms of cosmetic dentistry. Nearly any concern with the appearance of teeth can be fixed to leave a person with a natural looking and beautiful smile, and we work hard to help our patients get their confidence in their smile back!
