To answer the point concisely, cosmetic procedures are most appropriate for patients who have great oral health. The purpose of cosmetic dentistry in Gilbert, AZ is to refine and polish the appearance of your teeth and gums that are healthy and functioning with very little to zero disease, decay or damage. There are additional requirements when considering a cosmetic procedure. Extensive dental prosthetics, for example, can cause issues with teeth whitening because if a porcelain crown is present it may no longer match the rest of your teeth after the whitening process.
Overview of Cosmetic Procedures:
Dental Veneers: Porcelain veneers conceal an extensive series of dental flaws. They can address gaps, hide discolored, chipped, or crooked teeth, and are locked in place for a lasting smile enhancement.
Teeth Whitening: Professional whitening by Lifetime Family Dental can lighten your teeth 6-10 shades. Laser whitening in-office can also activate the peroxide gel more quickly compared to at-home treatments.
Cosmetic Bonding: For same-day treatment of misshapen & chipped teeth, tooth-colored resin is an excellent option. It can also fill minor cavities in your front teeth.
Dental Restorations: Porcelain inlays & onlays, dental implants, and crowns can be used in conjunction to address both cosmetic and structural issues.
Gum Recontouring: Is your smile too gummy or uneven? The removal of excess gum tissue can give your smile more attractive proportions.
