If you’re considering cosmetic dentistry, you may have a few questions about which treatment is right for you. At Smillie Dental, Dr. Joseph Smillie offers a comprehensive set of cosmetic dentistry options. This information will help you decide on a treatment depending on your needs and what kinds of cosmetic issues you would like to correct with the help of a cosmetic dentist in Port Orange.
Teeth Whitening – Surface Stains and Discoloration
Teeth whitening is the best way to remove most surface stains from your teeth. Teeth whitening uses powerful whitening agents called peroxides. When these peroxides come into contact with a stain on your tooth, they break the molecular bond that holds it in place. In turn, this leads to the removal of the stain.
Teeth whitening can treat stains caused by smoking and tobacco use, the natural aging process, and the consumption of dark foods and beverages like wine, berries, tea, and coffee.
We offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening services for convenience, comfort, and rapid results.
Porcelain Veneers – Misshapen, Chipped, Discolored and Gapped Teeth
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin pieces of porcelain that are applied directly to your teeth to cover up a variety of imperfections. The process of veneer placement is fast and non-invasive and usually only takes two appointments at Smillie Dental.
Veneers are a popular way to restore teeth that are slightly damaged or misshapen. They can also cover up gaps between the teeth and treat interior tooth discoloration caused by a metal-amalgam filling, root canal or a reaction to antibiotics like doxycycline.
Invisalign – Crooked, Gapped, Crowded, or Misaligned Teeth
Invisalign is a great choice if you’ve always wanted orthodontic treatment, but you don’t want traditional metal braces. Braces can be unsightly and uncomfortable, and taking care of them can be a pain.
Invisalign uses clear, retainer-like plastic aligners to gently shift the position of your teeth. These clear aligners are totally transparent and removable and typical treatment times are just under a year for most patients.
With Invisalign, you can treat gaps, crowded teeth, slightly crooked teeth, and misaligned teeth. While Invisalign is not appropriate for every orthodontic treatment, it is a powerful cosmetic option, and it’s especially great for older adults who wish to straighten their smile without metal braces.
