Focused on You.
Smile enhancement can have a significant impact on your overall appearance; even little changes can boost your confidence, self-esteem, and encourage you to smile more. At Dr. Q Dentistry, we strive to provide the best cosmetic dentistry around. Cosmetic operations can range from a simple color adjustment to replacing missing teeth, and everything in between, thanks to recent breakthroughs in dentistry.
Dental veneers are a possible solution to help you achieve the look you desire. They are a popular choice for those with chipped teeth, a gap between teeth, or misshaped teeth.
Dental veneers are thin porcelain laminates that adhere to the front part of the teeth to give teeth a more classically shaped look. Porcelain Veneers can be done just on 1 tooth or up to 20 teeth. When 16-20 have porcelain veneers, that’s usually called a Smile Design.
The terms dental crowns and caps are synonymous. If dental decay, cracked fillings, root canals, clenching or grinding the teeth have caused extensive damage to the underlying tooth structure a dental filling may not be a sufficient restoration. The only way to completely restore the cosmetic appearance and function of this tooth is often full coverage with a dental crown. The good news is that a completed dental crown looks and feels like a natural tooth.
A dental bridge replaces the missing teeth with artificial teeth called “pontics,” and is supported on the ends by prepared natural teeth. Once fabricated and fitted a dental bridge will be permanently “fixed,” or cemented into place. Like crowns, bridges can be made of either porcelain baked on to a metal substrate or many of the new ceramic materials that have been developed.
If your gums rest too low on your teeth and you are unhappy with your smile, you may be a candidate for gum contouring surgery. Also called gum reshaping or tissue sculpting, this cosmetic dental procedure can even out an uneven gum line and give you a smile you can be proud of. Usually we do this procedure with a diode laser where there is minimal discomfort and post op pain.
Smile design is a cosmetic dental procedure that corrects teeth imperfections and restores your dental health and appearance. It involves a customized treatment and long-lasting results for a straighter, whiter, and natural-looking smile. Our teeth wear down, chip, or discolor over time. However, smile design gives you a smile you’ll love for life. It may consist of a combination of the following procedures depending on your needs and
desires: Porcelain veneers, Dental implants, Crowns & bridges, Orthodontics, Teeth whitening, Gum contouring.
