What does a Cosmetic Dentist Do?
Cosmetic dentistry is an art and a science, a perfect balance between aesthetics and health. Dr. Markham offers a wide range of cosmetic dental treatments, including:
- Porcelain Veneers: Placed on the front surfaces of the teeth, veneers can conceal a wide array of aesthetic imperfections, including discoloration, chips, fractures, and more.
- Dental Crowns: If a tooth is cosmetically flawed, weak, damaged, or decayed, a dental crown can reinforce the tooth structure for a seamless smile.
- Dental Implants: The most successful option for replacing missing teeth, dental implants can provide a natural-looking, complete smile.
- Composite Bonding: Minor aesthetic defects can be camouflaged by applying a high-quality composite resin material.
- In-Office Teeth Whitening: Dull, stained, or yellowed teeth can be brightened up to eight shades lighter with professional in-office teeth whitening.
- Traditional Orthodontics: Crooked, rotated, misaligned, and gapped teeth can be corrected with braces for a dramatic smile and optimal oral health.
- Invisalign®: Patients who desire to straighten their teeth inconspicuously can benefit from Invisalign, a system that corrects crooked smiles using a series of clear, thermoplastic trays.
Who is a Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?
The primary purpose of cosmetic treatments is to address the aesthetics of your smile. Therefore, eligible patients will be in good oral health. If you currently have extensive decay or gum disease, these issues will need to be addressed before pursuing cosmetic treatments. By restoring health and function to your smile first, you can enjoy long-lasting benefits.
