Porcelain veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain that can be used to cover stains or mask flaws such as cracked, broken, or misshapen teeth. Porcelain veneers are sometimes referred to as "instant orthodontics" because they can also be applied to straighten the appearance of a crooked smile.
Tooth whitening is perhaps the most commonly sought cosmetic dentistry procedure at our practice. Even the most beautiful smile can appear unhealthy or dull when teeth are stained or yellowed. By offering our patients an in-office customized and at-home whitening treatment, you can decide when you are happy with the shade, when you may need a touch-up, and when it works best for you to whiten! This flexibility ensures our patients can enjoy smiles that are up to ten shades brighter.
By applying a thin coating of a tooth-colored resin composite material to teeth, our dentists can improve the appearance of a number of cosmetic flaws. In many cases, cosmetic bonding is more affordable and just as effective as porcelain veneers, though results will not last as long.
When a tooth has been damaged by a cavity, the doctor will most likely perform a root canal to remove the infected tooth pulp. To restore functionality and appearance, and to seal the tooth from further damage, a dental crown will then be placed over the entire tooth surface.
If a patient is missing one or more teeth but is not necessarily a good candidate for dentures or dental implants, he or she may be fitted with a dental bridge. A bridge is an artificial tooth that is held in place by a dental crown on either side of the gap created by the missing tooth.
We offer both full and partial dentures to our patients in the Renton, Greater Seattle area. Unlike dental bridges or dental implants, dentures are removable replacement teeth. Our dentists use the most modern materials and methods to create our patients' dentures, so they can always be assured of a comfortable fit and the most realistic appearance.
Traditional metal fillings are often composed of mercury, which, in addition to creating a black appearance, have shown in studies to potentially be harmful to our patient's health. For this reason, we aim to use only composite, or tooth-colored fillings, exclusively. White fillings applied by our dentists are less likely to cause tooth breakage such as metal fillings. White fillings are also virtually undetectable which makes your smile healthy and beautiful at the same time.
Many of our patients combine a number of cosmetic dentistry procedures to achieve the ultimate in smile design. For example, a patient may choose to eliminate the "gummy" appearance of his or her smile with gum recontouring, and then enhance the results with a tooth whitening session. To learn more about the smile makeover or smile design opportunities available to our patients, we encourage you to make an appointment to consult with a member of our team office.
