Cosmetic dentistry refers to a group of procedures designed to improve the aesthetic appearance of your teeth and smile. Thanks to dental restorations, oral prosthetics, teeth whitening treatments, and clear aligners, it’s possible to achieve the smile of your dreams.
At Erin McLendon, DDS & Associates - family and cosmetic dentistry, the team offers a variety of cosmetic dentistry services, including:
Dental implants are posts made from titanium that replace your natural tooth roots. Your provider inserts them into your jaw during an outpatient procedure, and they later integrate with your natural bone. Dental implants provide a foundation for restorations, like bridges, crowns, or implant-retained dentures.
Teeth whitening uses medical-grade solutions like hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide to cut through stains and discoloration. The team offers two types of teeth whitening –– in-office whitening with Philips Zoom and take-home teeth whitening trays.
Veneers are custom-crafted shells of porcelain bonded to the front of your teeth. They’re used to cover minor oral imperfections like tooth stains, unusually shaped teeth, or gaps between teeth.
A crown covers a damaged or decaying tooth. It restores your enamel to its near-original condition, making daily activities like biting and chewing hassle-free. With preventive care and good oral hygiene, crowns often last 10-15* years.
If you lose a single tooth or several teeth in a row, the team might recommend a bridge. A dental bridge has an artificial tooth that fills a space in your smile.
Some oral issues, like crowded or overlapping teeth, require orthodontic treatment. The team offers clear aligners to adults and teens from ClearCorrect™ and Invisalign®. Clear aligners are much easier to care for than traditional braces and they’re removable.
Cosmetic dentistry transforms the physical appearance of your teeth and smile, but it often provides an additional benefit of improved oral health. For example, by replacing a missing tooth, you can reduce the risk of potentially serious issues like gum recession, bone loss, or shifting teeth.
