Cosmetic Dentistry services offered at Vineyard Dental
Veneers – Cosmetic Dentist
Porcelain veneers are an excellent aesthetic solution that can conceal unsightly stains and chips as well as crooked or misaligned teeth. These thin, stain-resistant wafers are an effective way to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Easy to apply and extremely durable, porcelain veneers slide right over your teeth and are virtually undetectable achieving a healthy “natural” look. In fact, porcelain veneers are the most aesthetic restoration in dentistry.
Laser Whitening – Cosmetic Dentist
Our in-office Phillips ZOOM tooth whitening system is one of the most effective tooth whitening systems available. Most of our patients prefer Phillips ZOOM whitening because it is about a one hour visit with minimal sensitivity with this bleaching technique. With proper care and an occasional touch-up at home, your whiter smile will sparkle for years.
Crowns – Cosmetic Dentist
Metal-free crowns (or caps) are dental restorations that fit securely over your existing teeth. A crown protects a tooth that is fractured, broken or has insufficient structure to hold a filling. Naturally looking and durable, crowns are made from porcelain and are virtually undetectable improving the smile of many patients.
Composite Fillings – Cosmetic Dentist
Tooth-colored fillings are an alternative to traditional metal fillings. Old-fashioned amalgam fillings are extremely noticeable and can reduce the strength of your teeth. New tooth colored fillings are safe, durable, and are virtually undetectable, making those around you think you’ve always had a flawless set of teeth.
Dental Implants – Cosmetic Dentist
Dental implants enable dentists to create healthy, attractive smiles in an innovative way. Implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into the jawbone where it replaces the natural tooth root. The artificial tooth roots are capped with a realistic aesthetic crown that is indistinguishable from the rest of your teeth. The artificial tooth roots are made of bio-compatible titanium, allowing bone and gum tissue to grow securely around the implant. For those who are missing a tooth or several teeth, dental implants are a sturdier and more natural looking alternative to bridges or dentures.
Bonding – Cosmetic Dentist
Bonding involves the direct application of a tooth-colored material to the tooth reinforcing the tooth structure and is typically used to create a more attractive smile. It is a simple and effective way to mask minor chips, cracks and stains on your teeth. Bonding can also be applied to change the size and shape of your teeth, creating a smile that appears more symmetrical and space free. This procedure provides a fast solution and the treated tooth will be virtually indistinguishable from your other teeth and your smile will look as good as new.
Inlays & Onlays – Cosmetic Dentist
In areas where strength and aesthetics are needed, porcelain inlays and onlays are an excellent option. In the contact areas of teeth, there is a fair amount of wear and tear. If a composite filling material is placed in an area of high stress, then it tends to wear down over time. In cases such as this, porcelain fillings are suggested due to their excellent aesthetics and durability. When a cusp of a tooth is missing, however there is still enough tooth structure to support a large filling, then inlays and onlays can be considered. Just like veneers, they are strong and they are bonded to the teeth using a thin layer of resin material. With the new materials available today, these are almost invisible when they are placed.
Tooth & Gum Contouring – Cosmetic Dentist
A smile can look aged when worn-down front teeth have lost their youthful shape. Natural teeth can be slightly reshaped to create a softer, straighter and younger look.
Gum contouring is a valuable tool that an experienced cosmetic dentist uses to help create a gorgeous and beautiful smile. The lips and gums act as a frame for patient's smile. Healthy gums are a very important part of a pleasant appearance. It's not just the teeth that look beautiful; it's the combination of everything that is seen. When there is too much gum it gives the patient an unattractive gummy smile even if the teeth are wonderfully aligned and proportioned well. Laser gingivoplasty is the surgical reshaping of the outer surface of the gums and when used during cosmetic gum contouring, a beautiful smile is usually achievable. Gingivoplasty involves the surgical reshaping of the outer surface of the gums by thinning the gum tissue so the tissue looks natural and pleasing.
Invisalign – Cosmetic Dentist
Get the beautiful smile you've always wanted. Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners. Because there are no metal wires and brackets, Invisalign is comfortable. And since it is removable, eating, brushing and flossing is no problem. You can still enjoy your favorite foods and smile without holding back. It has been proven effective in both clinical research and in practices nationwide. The length of treatment is usually less than conventional braces. So whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart or have shifted since wearing braces, you'll have a new reason to smile.
Anti-Aging Treatment – Cosmetic Dentist
As we age, that gleaming, white, ear-to-ear grin we so readily flashed in our twenties eventually succumbs to the ravages of time and bad habits. Eventually our smile loses its shape and luster. As time goes by, our lips become less plump and gravity draws the upper lip down slightly, covering more of the upper teeth. Gum recession, grinding, tooth darkening, old silver fillings, and gum disease contribute to this aged look. A customized combination of our cosmetic services can help reverse this appearance.
