At AC Dentistry, cosmetic dentistry refers to dental procedures that improve the appearance of a person’s smile. It primarily focuses on the appearance of a person’s teeth, gums, and/or bite. Cosmetic dentistry procedures aren’t restorative. Instead, they focus more on the aesthetic appearance of a person’s smile.
A smile makeover is a customized treatment for patients seeking to improve the appearance of their smile. It generally consists of multiple treatments that can be performed in stages. The goal of a smile makeover is to give patients the smile they’ve always wanted, whether that means straighter teeth, whiter teeth, or teeth that appear more symmetrical.
Porcelain veneers offer a permanent solution for patients who want beautiful, natural-looking teeth. This is one of the most conservative cosmetic treatments available, as only a tiny amount of enamel is etched away per tooth. Veneers can improve the appearance of stained teeth, gaps and chips, and misalignment.
Chairside Composite Veneers
Chairside composite veneers are made of composite resin material. Composite veneers can be molded and shaped into the perfect smile line for the patient. The composite resin material also mimics the color and appearance of natural tooth enamel.
Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Patients who have worn or missing teeth are likely to have an increased risk for gum disease and tooth decay. These patients are also more likely to experience TMJ disorders, which can cause pain in the jaw and the facial area. Full mouth rehabilitations help restore dental health by improving a patient’s bite, smile shape, and tooth alignment.
ClearCorrect is a revolutionary system that uses a series of clear aligners to straighten teeth. It’s an effective treatment for a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crossbite, overbite, underbite, open bite, gapped teeth, and more. ClearCorrect aligners are custom-designed to perfectly fit your mouth, and they’re made from a BPA-free plastic material that’s safe on your teeth and body.
Dental bonding is a procedure that can improve the appearance of a chipped or discolored tooth. A tooth-colored material is used to fill in small chips, cracks, or gaps in teeth. The tooth-colored material used for dental bonding is bonded to the tooth with a dental-grade adhesive. The material can be shaped and polished to match the appearance of the surrounding teeth.
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that removes stains and discoloration from teeth. When performed by a dentist, teeth whitening is safe and non-invasive.
Teeth whitening is a simple, non-invasive treatment that can dramatically enhance your smile! As your teeth are exposed to staining agents such as coffee, tea, and wine, you can restore your tooth’s natural, brilliant white color with professional teeth whitening.
Custom-Made Take-Home Whitening Trays
Some patients want the convenience of whitening their teeth at home. Custom-made trays are the best solution.
A custom-fit tray means one size fits all. Custom trays fit comfortably, so most patients see little to no sensitivity. Custom-made trays are also made of higher quality materials and are more cost-effective than over-the-counter whitening products.
Professional In-Office KöR® Whitening
KöR Whitening is different from other whitening products because it is done in our office. We’ll take impressions of your teeth and then send them to KöR so they can make custom trays for you. The whitening gel is made with a proprietary formula that allows it to work much better and faster than other whitening systems. KöR Whitening also contains potassium nitrate and fluoride, which help strengthen your teeth and protect them from sensitivity. The effects of KöR Whitening are long-lasting, and with proper aftercare, your results will last for many years.
