Cosmetic Dentistry in Orlando
If you feel dissatisfied with any aspect of your smile, you don’t just have to live with it. Cosmetic dentistry at Smile Solutions provides you with numerous options to correct the issue and improve your self-confidence at the same time. Typically, these are voluntary procedures to fix problems with cracked, chipped, stained, misaligned, or missing teeth. Dental insurance typically does not cover cosmetic dental procedures unless you can show that you also have a medical reason to have it performed. However, Dr. Thi Pham and her staff will help you explore options to make your cosmetic procedure as affordable as possible.
Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Services Performed at Smile Solutions in Orlando
You may know that you want to improve the appearance of your smile yet feel unsure of how to go about it. We encourage you to come in for a consultation to learn more about specific cosmetic procedures as well as what your smile might look at the conclusion of treatment. Below are some of the cosmetic enhancements that our patients request the most often:
Crowns and Bridges: A dental crown goes over the entire top surface of your tooth to help stabilize it or improve its appearance. Dr. Pham commonly uses crowns after root canals, to prevent additional tooth decay, and as an anchor for a dental bridge. A bridge is a partial denture to replace one or several of your natural teeth. Dr. Pham anchors dental bridges to the remaining natural teeth on either side of the missing one to provide support.
Dental Bonding: This is one of the most economical cosmetic dentistry options, which is one reason why it remains so popular. With dental bonding, Dr. Pham uses resin composite or plastic to cover common problems like stained, chipped, or misshapen teeth.
Porcelain Veneers: This wafer-thin shell adheres to the front of your tooth to disguise your cosmetic issue. Before Dr. Pham places it, she needs to remove a very small amount of enamel from the tooth as well as taken an impression of it. She then sends the impression to our dental lab to create your permanent veneer. If you prefer, you can request a temporary veneer in the meantime.
Teeth Whitening: Lifestyle habits such as drinking coffee, smoking, and eating a lot of dark-colored foods can all leave permanent stains on your teeth. You may be able to lighten them somewhat with an over-the-counter product, but nothing matches the results of professional teeth whitening. To start the process, Dr. Pham pours whitening bleach in a customized mouth tray and places one on your top teeth and one on your bottom teeth. Each session takes approximately one hour. You may need to schedule more than one appointment to achieve the level of brightness you desire.
These are just four potential options available to you. We will go over all cosmetic dentistry procedures with you in detail during your consultation session.
