cosmetic dentistry TulsaFor decades, cosmetic dentistry was affordable only for the most financially fortunate. However, today many dental procedures are readily available and more economically doable than ever before. Your dentist can provide multiple options that will improve your appearance; a simple inquiry can get you started.

Choices for Your Smile Makeover

Teeth Whitening: You have options here … you can undergo in-office teeth whitening and dramatically lighten and brighten your smile in just about an hour. Or you can select take-home whitening where you can whiten at your own pace in the privacy of home; however, this method does take longer to achieve the desired results.

Porcelain Veneers: This cosmetic option can resolve many dental maladies. Veneers are very thin shells made to look just like your own teeth in size, shape, and color, A small layer of enamel is removed from the front of teeth being treated. Veneers will be cemented in place to correct deep dental stain, chipped enamel, uneven dentition, or unwanted openings between teeth. One or multiple teeth can be improved with porcelain veneers.

Porcelain Crowns: Porcelain crowns are used for more than restoring a broken tooth. Porcelain crowns are also utilized to repair a decayed tooth; as the final step in endodontic care; as the abutment teeth in a partial bridge, and as a final restoration for tooth replacement.

Dental Implants: Tooth loss can be devastating; restoring a tooth with a dental implant provides the closest thing to having your biological tooth back. The implant itself is a small titanium post that is surgically embedded in gum tissue where tooth loss has occurred. While the area heals, a cosmetic enhancement will be fabricated that will look and act just like your natural tooth.
