Cosmetic dentistry uses restorations (like crowns and bridges), oral prosthetics (like dentures), and whitening treatments to improve the physical appearance of your teeth, gums, and smile.
Most cosmetic treatments are considered elective, but some offer the added benefit of improved oral hygiene.
Dr. Grace and the team offer a variety of cosmetic dental services, including:
Crowns are custom-designed coverings applied to the top of a damaged or decaying tooth. Once bonded in place, a crown covers all of your tooth enamel above the gum line. Porcelain crowns look very similar to your tooth enamel. As a result, they blend in with your smile and look completely natural.
Veneers are paper-thin shells of porcelain that Dr. Grace bonds to the front of your permanent teeth. Veneers make your smile appear more balanced and symmetrical. They cover minor imperfections like stains or pointy or unusually shaped teeth.
A dental bridge fills a gap in your smile caused by a missing tooth. Aside from reducing the risk of more serious issues in the future, bridges prevent your existing teeth from moving out of the proper position.
Dentures are oral prosthetics that replace your natural teeth and some of the surrounding tissue. Dr. Grace and the team offer several types of dentures, including implant-supported, complete, and partial dentures.
Teeth whitening is a group of procedures that use solutions like hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide to remove stains from your teeth. Dr. Grace and the team offer in-office teeth whitening as well as take-home teeth whitening trays.
Only a qualified dentist, like Dr. Grace, can determine if you might benefit from cosmetic dentistry.
After an in-office oral exam, a review of your dental health history, and a discussion of your goals, Dr. Grace and the team can develop a custom care plan that helps you achieve the look you desire.
