Having yellow or crooked teeth or gaps in your smile can affect not only your confidence but also your dental health. You may dream of your ideal smile, one with perfectly aligned bright white teeth.
At Scott J Owens DDS Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we will work with you to create a custom smile makeover to help you achieve your dream smile. Together, we’ll develop a custom treatment plan to improve your smile through various dentistry treatments. In addition to cosmetic dentistry, we offer general dentistry services to provide preemptive dental care.
If you have gaps between your teeth and want a permanent solution instead of dealing with the hassle of dentures, you may want to consider dental implants. A dental implant consists of a tiny titanium screw that your dentist will surgically implant into your jaw, a small hook called an abutment, and a dental crown.
Dental implants last a lifetime and look and act like natural teeth. They can also help improve your overall dental health. Because the dental implant goes directly into your jaw, it encourages bone growth, increasing your jaw density. You’ll also find it easier to clean than a gap, meaning fewer bacteria and potential for cavities.
To complete the dental implant process, you’ll need to schedule two surgeries and plan multiple office visits. Although it’s an involved process, many patients feel it’s worth it to have a full mouth of teeth again without the need for regular replacements.
If you are self-conscious about your grey or yellow teeth, you may want to consider dental veneers. We offer porcelain veneers and LUMINEERS at Owens Cosmetic & Family Dentistry.
We will bond your veneers or LUMINEERS onto your natural tooth to conceal any yellowing, discoloration, cracks, or chips to give you a beautiful smile. Our personalized dental treatment lets you choose between porcelain veneers or LUMINEERS to create your perfect smile.
In your free consultation session with Dr. Owens, you’ll determine whether LUMINEERS or porcelain veneers are better for your needs.
If you choose porcelain veneers, we will take a small sample of your teeth to create a perfectly matched veneer. Once completed, we will bind it to your teeth with a strong cement, hardened with a light beam. After cleaning away any excess cement, you’ll have a new, whiter smile.
Unlike porcelain veneers, LUMINEERS don’t require any preparation of your teeth like grinding. They can also go directly over existing dental work, including crowns.
As we age, many people notice their teeth taking on a yellow color from years of drinking coffee, tea, and red wine. If your teeth are healthy and don’t require dental implants or porcelain veneers, you may still want to whiten them to achieve your perfect smile.
Whether teeth whitening is the last or only step in your smile makeover plan, it can put the finishing touches on your smile. You can choose between ZOOM! Whitening or take-home whitening trays.
In-office ZOOM! Whitening takes less than an hour at the practice and can make your teeth up to eight shades lighter. You may want to have your teeth professionally cleaned about two weeks before the process for optimal results.
If you prefer to do the treatment at home, we can also provide teeth whitening trays. These work on their own or as a touch up after the ZOOM! Whitening in-chair treatment. You’ll get customized teeth trays designed for your teeth to take home and be shown how to use the gel, and instructed on how long to wear your trays. At-home trays produce the same effects as in-chair teeth whitening but at a slower pace.
