What Cosmetic Dentistry Can Do for You

Cosmetic dentistry is an advanced approach to improving the appearance of your smile. These days, anyone can achieve a beautiful smile, no matter what you might dislike about your current appearance. Cosmetic dentistry can help if you have:

  • Discolored teeth
  • Chipped, cracked, or worn teeth
  • Small or poorly shaped teeth
  • Crooked or crowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Chipped, cracked, or worn teeth
  • Small or poorly shaped teeth
  • Crooked or crowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Missing teeth

Often, we have multiple ways of treating these common cosmetic concerns. During your consultation, Dr. Collins will explain your options to you, including the benefits, limitations, and costs of each procedure, and the two of you can decide which is the best treatment approach.

Discolored Teeth

Discolored teeth are one of the most common complaints about their smile. When your teeth are discolored, it can make your smile look old and unhealthy. If tooth discoloration isn’t from cavities or infections, it’s probably from smoking or dark-colored foods and beverages. This is called extrinsic staining, which usually responds very well to teeth whitening. We utilize Opalescence take-home whitening.

Intrinsic staining may be related to enamel defects, tooth bruising, or other conditions. This discoloration is inside the tooth, and teeth whitening can’t remove it. Most often, porcelain veneers are the best approach for dealing with this discoloration.

Chipped, Cracked, or Worn Teeth

You use your teeth every day, and they can become worn down over time. In addition, accidents and injuries can cause your teeth to chip and crack. This damage to your teeth can destroy the harmonious symmetry of your smile and alter the attractive proportions of your teeth.

In some cases, we recommend dental bonding to repair your teeth. This is an inexpensive and quick way to repair tooth damage, but it doesn’t last a long time. Porcelain veneers are often the best choice for long-lasting cosmetic tooth repairs. In some cases, tooth damage might weaken the tooth enough that a dental crown is needed to support and protect the tooth.

Patient Testimonials

“I had to take my daughter that is terrified of dentists in to get her cavity taken care of. A friend recommended Collins Dentistry and said they would make the experience a good one (as good as going to the dentist can be!). They used really good numbing gel and she didn’t even cry. I have recommended them to friends.”

“I used to be terrified of the dentist and of having any work done on my teeth due to terrible past experiences, but Dr. Chris and his team are amazing. They make me feel so comfortable, they explain everything, and they never hesitate to help me with whatever it is that I need.”

– Lacee G.

Small or Poorly Shaped Teeth

Attractive teeth are large enough to show when we smile and often have a specific proportion that helps convey an impression of healthy youth. Sometimes, your teeth might not develop into this attractive size and shape. Common causes of this are retained baby teeth and peg laterals.

Often, porcelain veneers work great to correct this complaint. Dental crowns or dental bonding may be the best approach for your smile.

Crooked or Crowded Teeth

Crooked or crowded teeth are one of people’s most noticeable concerns about their smile. These problems can also be hard to correct. Most often, orthodontic approaches like braces or Invisalign are the best way to straighten teeth.

Gaps between Teeth

Rather than having crowded teeth, you might have gaps between teeth. This is commonly a developmental problem, a smile formation called a diastema. Some people might think these are attractive, but for many, it can make you ashamed of your smile and reluctant to show it.

Orthodontics can treat gaps between teeth, but sometimes dental bonding or porcelain veneers might be a better approach to closing a gap. It will be faster, less expensive, and can simultaneously correct cosmetic concerns about the size or shape of your teeth.

Missing Teeth

If you have a gap in your smile because you are missing one or more teeth, cosmetic dentistry has multiple solutions for this as well. A dental bridge is often an excellent solution for just one missing tooth. A dental implant is often the best option for more missing teeth or to get an optimal replacement tooth.

A Custom Smile Makeover

Often, people have more than one concern about the appearance of their smile. This means they need a combination of procedures to achieve their desired beautiful smile. At Collins Family Dentistry, we offer a convenient solution: a smile makeover.

A smile makeover is a custom combination of procedures Dr. Collins will design for you after listening to your cosmetic concerns and goals. Not only will Dr. Collins help you achieve your desired results, but he can also help you pick procedures that will meet your needs in other ways, including achieving results quickly, getting an affordable smile makeover, having long-lasting results, and more.
