Cosmetic Dentistry Done Right
- Posted on: Jun 30 2017
Patients of Ardmore dentist Dr. Lindsey Marshall know that our entire dental team prioritizes friendly, personal service. It is important to us that each case is approached with an understanding of its unique nature. No patient is the same, and no dental problem is exactly like any other. This is as true in general dentistry as it is in cosmetic dentistry. Sometimes, this is overlooked.
Did you know that there is no formal licensure for cosmetic dentistry? This means that any dental office that performs smile-enhancing procedures can market itself as a cosmetic dentistry practice. This is important for patients to recognize as they seek the appropriate provider to plan a course of treatment aimed at revealing inner beauty through the smile.
Cosmetic dental treatments require more than an inclusion of modern dental materials. The use of select materials also contributes to the final result. After completing her program at The Harvard School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Marshall continued to expand her knowledge and skill set at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. If an upgraded smile is in your future, you are in good hands.
How to Improve your Smile
The best first step you can take if you want to feel better about your smile is to make a note of what concerns you, and also of what you would like to see when you look in the mirror. Is it more brightness? Straighter teeth? Is there a gap or a chip that you finally want to erase? These are all concerns that can be handled with conscientious cosmetic dentistry.
- Teeth whitening is a job for your dentist, not a store-bought product. Once teeth become dull or yellow, particles of debris have settled in the pores of your teeth. This cannot be polished away or lifted with a weak concentration of peroxide. Our patients have options in whitening that include home whitening and in-office treatment.
- Porcelain veneers are crafted in a dental lab of dental porcelain that mimics the characteristics of natural enamel. In a two-visit process, veneers are designed, made, and adhered to the appropriate teeth for a whole new smile.
- Dental bonding is the process of disguising a small imperfection with the tooth-colored composite material. Suited to inconsequential flaws like chips or stains, bonding is completed in a single visit and can last for years with good care.
