Comprehensive Cosmetic Dentistry
Once you have achieved healthy teeth and gums, we look forward to discussing how we can make your smile really sparkle. From porcelain veneers, gum recontouring, professional teeth whitening and more, we are pleased to offer a range of cosmetic services. If you are not completely satisfied with the appearance of your smile, let the Drs. Boyd help with services in cosmetic dentistry.
Smile makeovers are possible with porcelain veneers. These wafer-thin coverings remake the appearance of cosmetically flawed teeth, sort of like a do-over for the teeth that show when you smile. Dental porcelain is a material that looks and feels just like the natural tooth enamel, with one key difference -- it is highly resistant to stains and discoloration. With porcelain veneers, your teeth stay the same beautiful shade of white for years to come.
Porcelain veneers are a good option for correcting the following issues.
- Chipped teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Short, stubby, or otherwise misshapen teeth
- Slightly gapped or misaligned teeth
- Chalky or oddly textured teeth
When cared for properly, porcelain veneers can last for more than a decade. Most people are good candidates for the treatment -- discuss your eligibility for veneers with the Drs. Boyd.
Soft Tissue Laser
If too much gum tissue is covering up your front teeth, you’ve got what we call a gummy smile. With the precise, efficient soft tissue laser, your doctor can gently remove the excess gum tissue and reveal the beautiful tooth enamel that is hiding behind. Most gum recontouring procedures are completed in just one visit, and the recovery is usually brief.
Forget the days when filling a cavity left behind a noticeable gray spot. Tooth-colored fillings are a discreet alternative to silver, or amalgam fillings. They are made of biocompatible composite resin, a metal-free material that is highly customizable to match the surrounding tooth enamel. Tooth-colored fillings can restore a new cavity or replace existing silver fillings. And unlike the amalgam alternative, white fillings actually bond with the tooth, restoring up to 95 percent of its original strength.
When aesthetics are a primary concern -- like for cracked, broken, or functionally flawed front teeth -- all-ceramic crowns provide a beautiful solution. These natural-looking restorations bring back the form and function of damaged teeth that show when you smile. Ceramic crowns blend very well with the surrounding teeth, and can last for many years with proper care.
Professional Teeth Whitening
There’s no way to prevent the teeth from growing darker with age. Exposure to coffee, red wine, and other highly pigmented foods and beverages really takes a toll on the shade of your smile. Professional teeth whitening rejuvenates your teeth for a younger, better-looking smile.
Drs. Boyd offers in-office and take-home whitening treatments so you can whiten at the pace you are comfortable with. In-office whitening is completed in just one visit to our office, while take-home systems reveal results over approximately two weeks.
