The Cosmetic Treatment Consultation
The first step toward your new smile begins with a cosmetic consultation at our Denver dental practice. One of our dentists will examine your teeth, listen to your cosmetic goals, and consider your other factors before recommending one or more cosmetic treatments. Candidates for cosmetic dentistry should be in good oral health and free of gum disease or periodontitis. If you do have existing dental problems, one of our doctors can schedule your restorative treatment.
Depending on your aesthetic goals, your Denver dentist may recommend:
If your tooth is severely discolored or misshapen, a dental crown can revamp the appearance of your tooth by placing a durable “cap” over the damaged natural tooth. Dental crowns also strengthen and reinforce teeth. To receive a dental crown, part of your natural tooth structure will need to be removed. This process is irreversible. With proper care and maintenance, a dental crown can last for 10 or more years.
Dental bonding allows one of our dentists to artfully reshape the surface of your tooth using natural-looking composite resin. Cosmetic bonding is a great option for patients who have minor cosmetic issues. Dental bonding is non-invasive and highly affordable.
Patients who seek a dramatic “Hollywood” smile may be great candidates for porcelain veneers. The ultra-thin shells are placed on the front of anterior teeth and completely alter the appearance and color of teeth. To prepare for the cosmetic procedure, patients will need to have a small amount of their natural tooth structure removed. Then, the medical-grade porcelain shells will be manufactured under the guidance of your Denver dentist to match your cosmetic goals.
If your teeth suffer from mild to moderate levels of extrinsic staining, a member of our dental team can use teeth whitening to brighten your smile. The cosmetic treatment is non-invasive. Over-the-counter whitening kits cannot deliver the drastic results that our prescription-level gels can. After one hour, your teeth can be whitened by up to several shades. Many of our Denver patients undergo whitening treatments every few years.
Your Denver dentist offers two unique options that straighten teeth: Invisalign clear aligners and metal braces. Both orthodontic treatments straighten teeth. Many patients enjoy the convenient and discreet benefits of Invisalign clear aligners. If you have severe misalignment issues, you may be a better candidate for traditional braces. During your consultation with your Denver dentist, the two options will be discussed in detail.
We are proud to offer gum contouring. Patients who suffer from a “gummy” smile often have the appearance of small teeth. By gently removing excess gum tissue, your Denver dentist can deliver drastic cosmetic results. Gum contouring is considered a minor surgery. Many patients are able to resume normal activities the day after their procedure.
