The most important thing we do as dentists is taking care of your oral health, but it’s our goal for you to feel confident about the appearance of your smile too. Often, the same procedures we use to ensure your teeth are healthy also have aesthetic benefits, but there are other circumstances in which you may wish to have a cosmetic treatment done to help you achieve a beautiful smile. Cosmetic dentistry is safe and affordable, and modern treatments are more effective than ever before.
No matter what you wish to correct about your smile, there’s a cosmetic procedure available to meet your needs. At Gold Coast Smiles, we offer the following cosmetic dentistry services:
Teeth whitening comes in two forms: in-office and at-home kits. In-office whitening is ideal for significant stains, as it is the gold standard for correcting discoloration. With this simple treatment, we can whiten your smile by several shades in as little as an hour. If your stains are minor, an at-home bleaching kit may be a better fit for your needs. The at-home treatments we provide are more effective than the ones you can buy over-the-counter, using custom-made bleaching trays and advanced whitening gel to give you a whiter smile in a few weeks’ time.
Bonding is one of the unsung heroes of cosmetic dentistry, with an ability to correct gaps, chips, cracks, and even tooth discoloration. During this procedure, we use a tooth-colored composite material to restore, fill-in, and reshape your teeth. After the bonding material has been applied, we sculpt it to match the shape and size of your natural teeth and then use a curing light to harden it. Cosmetic bonding looks realistic and can last for years before needing to be replaced.
Invisalign lets you straighten your teeth without the inconvenience of traditional metal braces. This advanced orthodontic system replaces the brackets and wires with clear plastic aligners that gradually shift your teeth into place to correct misalignment and bite issues. These aligners are virtually invisible, comfortable to wear, and they can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. When used as directed, Invisalign aligners are as effective as braces. When treatment is complete, you’ll use a custom-made set of Invisalign retainers for both the upper and lower arches to maintain your beautiful smile for a lifetime.
With dental veneers, we can correct a wide range of cosmetic and minor functional issues, including stained teeth, gaps, chipped and damaged teeth, and even some malocclusions. Dental veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that blend in perfectly with the rest of your teeth for a completely natural appearance. First, we prepare your tooth for the veneer by shaving off a small amount of enamel, then we cement or bond your veneer directly onto the prepared tooth. Veneers can last for many years with proper care.
