common cosmetic dentistry treatments
At Metropolitan Dental Care, we offer a wide variety of cosmetic dentistry treatments, including:
- Dental Crowns: When back molars are chipped, fractured, or severely stained, we offer custom-made dental crowns designed to cap a tooth. It will not only reinforce the tooth’s structure, but provide a new and improved looking tooth.
- Porcelain Veneers: These custom-made shells are made from durable porcelain and designed to cover a multitude of issues, such as chipped, discolored, gapped, misaligned, and uneven teeth. When placed, your smile will be dramatically transformed. Although similar in function to dental crowns, porcelain veneers are thinner and only cover the front surface of teeth. While dental crowns are both restorative and cosmetic in nature, veneers are only recommended for cosmetic purposes. Results can reveal a stunningly beautiful smile.
- Teeth Whitening: When dental staining and discoloration are considered mild to moderate and only affect the outer layer of the tooth, we can brighten their appearance with a professional teeth whitening treatment. Your teeth will instantly look healthier and more attractive.
- Invisalign®: This treatment provides patients a discreet and effective solution in correcting crooked and misaligned teeth. Invisalign® aligner trays are virtually invisible and can address mild to moderate dental misalignment. Aligners should be worn for 20 to 22 hours a day and removed for eating and drinking anything other than water. Treatment is ideal for adult patients desiring a straighter smile.
- Orthodontic Treatment: If dental misalignment is more severe or a bite disorder is involved, traditional orthodontics may be recommended to help you straighten your smile.
- Gum Contouring: Gums are designed to frame teeth and create a healthy and attractive smile. When gums lines are uneven or there is an excess amount tissue, it can make teeth appear imbalanced. We offer laser gum contouring to help improve smiles.
- Tooth-Colored Fillings: If you have unsightly metal filling, we can replace them with composite resin shade-matched to blend with the natural aesthetics of your smile.
