Cosmetic dentistry treatments help your smile look its best, correct bite problems and restore missing teeth. Newberg, OR, cosmetic dentist Dr. Angela Toy offers the cosmetic services you need for an attractive, healthy smile.
Veneers address flaws by concealing them beneath a thin layer of porcelain. The tooth-shaped shells are applied to your teeth using dental cement and only cover the fronts of your teeth. Many of your favorite Hollywood actors get their bright, white smiles from veneers, but the restorations offer other benefits beyond whitening. They're a good choice if you want to hide discolorations, uneven surfaces, cracks, chips, or other imperfections. Veneers are also used to lengthen teeth, change their shape, or conceal slight gaps between teeth.
Invisalign offers a more subtle way to correct alignment and bite problems. The orthodontic system uses removable aligner trays made of clear, comfortable plastic to straighten your teeth and eliminate overbites, underbites and other bite problems. You'll wear each set of trays in the series for two weeks before swapping them for the next set. Many adults only need to use the aligners for about a year, although children and teenagers will need to wear aligners for the same amount of time they would have worn metal or ceramic braces.
Bonding, one of the least expensive cosmetic treatments, offers excellent results. Your Newberg, OR, dentist applies a putty-like material called composite resin to your teeth to lengthen them, change their shape, hide discolorations, or fill in chips or cracks. The material bonds to your teeth when it's hardened with a curing light. After a little shaping and polishing, you'll have a brand new smile.
Bridges and dentures are still good options if you've lost teeth, but they don't offer the impressive benefits that dental implants do. Implants are synthetic replacement roots that bond to your jawbone. Once they've become a permanent part of the bone, they're topped with crowns that look just like natural teeth. Dental implants prevent bone loss common after losing a tooth, allow you to eat hard and tough foods without a problem, and will last your entire lifetime with proper care.
