At Dental Care of Mesa, we offer a host of cosmetic dentistry services. There are many different treatments that can help revitalize your smile and improve the look of your mouth, teeth, and gums. Each smile is unique, and we can look at the teeth or parts of your mouth you are wanting to improve and give you suggestions on what your best options are.
Some patients are most concerned about restoring the function of their teeth, which we are eager to help with. We can restore that functionality in a number of ways. Our cosmetic dentistry procedures go a step further to ensure not just restorative function, but also a look that matches the rest of your mouth and produces a beautiful smile.
There are many over-the-counter whitening products out on the market, but the safest and best results can still be found at your dentist. We understand your dental history and what kinds of whitening techniques can be more successful. The teeth whitening services we are able to offer will last longer, be more effective, and are able to be administered in a safe controlled environment. You don’t have to worry about following instructions or having perfect technique. Further, we are able to touch up and round out the application over time and give you the exact look you want.
Dental bonding is a way to repair chipped, broken, or cracked teeth. It is performed using a composite resin that covers the damaged areas and gives it a natural look. More importantly, it seals the damage and prevents bacteria from getting in and creating more decay or infection.
A veneer is a thin white material made from porcelain, resin, or ceramic. It is custom designed to fit the front of each tooth exactly with a natural look. Before veneers are applied, some of the front enamel has to be removed by a special tool. A veneer is a permanent solution, since the grinded enamel cannot be replaced, so we can help you know if it is the right solution for problems like crooked teeth, damaged or decayed enamel, or gaps.
Dental crowns are caps that cover a tooth that has been filed down to allow the crown to fit. They are made from strong materials like gold, porcelain, metal, ceramic, or other newer materials to last a long time in your mouth. When a tooth is severely decayed, discolored, cracked or broken, but the tooth’s interior pulp remains healthy, a restorative crown allows us to file off the damaged parts of the tooth and reinforce the remaining healthy tooth. A crown is placed in two to three visits. First, we file down the tooth and place a temporary crown. Later, we apply the permanent crown, which is designed and created to match your smile exactly.
Dental bridges are a way to fill gaps in your teeth when there are one or two missing teeth. There are different types of bridges that require slightly different procedures. Standard bridges require you to have the teeth on either side of the missing teeth filed down and fitted with crowns. Replacement teeth are connected between these crowns. Some bridges do not require crowning, while others are designed for the back of the mouth where there is no healthy tooth in place on one side of the gap.
An implant is a metal post to go in the place where the root of the tooth would be. The end of this implant is fitted with an abutment, an extension that fits the crown portion of the artificial replacement tooth. The implant procedure is more intensive because the implant must be put directly into your jawbone and is a more expensive solution. The process is also longer and requires more time to heal.
