Miami and Coral Gables, FL
You look at your calendar and see it—a big social event approaching. Maybe it’s a wedding. Maybe it’s a class reunion or a holiday gathering. Whatever the event on your calendar might be, if it’s one where you know pictures are going to be taken, you have several different factors to consider. What are you going to wear? Do you want to change your hair? And, if there’s something that makes you self-conscious about your smile, are you worried about showing your teeth? Now for the good news. Thanks to modern cosmetic dentistry, you can make dramatic changes to your smile in just a few weeks. Read on to see how Drs. Raul Garcia and Conchi Sanchez-Garcia, cosmetic dentists in Miami, can help you get your smile “event ready.”
Cosmetic dentistry improves function as well as form
Technically, the purpose of cosmetic dentistry is to improve the appearance of your teeth. However, many patients who have cosmetic work done report that their oral health improves. Many times, for example, a cosmetic procedure can improve the alignment of your bite, which makes it easier to clean your teeth. Thus, improving their overall oral health.
Let’s look at some of the ways that cosmetic dental treatments could improve oral health
- Tooth-colored fillings: These composite fillings can repair areas of decay while retaining a greater quantity of your natural tooth structure. Also, they avoid the potential health hazards associated with receiving fillings made of dental amalgam, which contain mercury. Your Coral Gables cosmetic dentists also can install a composite filling to replace existing fillings, and thus eliminate those unsightly dark spots in your smile. A tooth-colored filling can be matched to the shade of your other teeth, allowing it to blend in with your smile.
- Teeth whitening: Teeth whitening is the most popular procedure in cosmetic dentistry for a reason. We usually can complete a whitening treatment in less than an hour. Using the KoR Bleaching System, we can remove even deep-set stains from your teeth, lightening your teeth by as many as 16 shades. Our in-office whitening treatments produce long-lasting results and can be used on patients of almost any age, ranging from teenagers to senior citizens.
- Veneers: Veneers can transform the appearance of your smile in just a couple of weeks. Made of a thin shell of dental porcelain, a veneer can be placed on a single tooth that has apparent aesthetic flaws, or veneers can be placed on all the visible teeth in your mouth, giving you a smile full of brighter, perfectly-aligned teeth. Our dental porcelain is durable, stain-resistant, and has a translucency similar to tooth enamel, making for a natural and beautiful choice.
- Bonding: What if you’re self-conscious about some of the issues that can be treated by veneers, but your upcoming event is happening in a few days as opposed to a few weeks? Then a dental bonding treatment may be right for you. A bonding procedure can be completed in a single appointment. Bonding is minimally invasive, and the resin used can be matched to the shade of your natural teeth, helping the treated teeth blend into your smile.
