Dublin, OH smile makeovers begin with a consultation
The Dublin, OH cosmetic dentist ensures the patient’s oral health before tackling aesthetic issues. If problems exist, he or she restores them with modern services such as tooth-colored fillings, E4D CAD/CAM porcelain crowns, inlays and onlays, dental implants and implant-supported prosthetics. The cosmetic portion of a smile makeover involves a treatment plan incorporating the dentist’s findings and the patient’s goals. The Dublin, OH dentist uses one or more treatments to improve aesthetics and may preview the finished smile with computer imaging.
Porcelain veneers Also dental laminates, porcelain veneers cover the front side of healthy teeth that have cosmetic imperfections such as stains, chips, cracks, gaps and crowding. The super thin shells of ceramic give a natural appearance just right for the individual’s new smile. Dr. Buck or Burton needs 2 to 3 visits to complete veneers, but they last for years with good care.
Professional teeth whitening Whether at home or at the dental office, teeth whitening uses concentrated hydrogen peroxide gel to eliminate stains caused food, beverages smoking, age and other factors. Safe for soft tissues and tooth enamel, professional whitening improves tooth color by as much as 8 shades.
Invisalign clear aligners Repair oral health and appearance with Invisalign clear braces. Biocompatible, customized aligners straighten mild to moderate orthodontic problems quicker than traditional braces. Because aligners are removable, hygiene and meals are easy. Treatment with Invisalign makes over a smile in as little as 9 to 18 months–about half the time of metal or ceramic braces.
Composite resin bonding Using a tooth-colored combination of acrylic and glass, bonding fills small chips, cracks and gaps, smoothing rough surface defects. The doctor frequently uses it with whitening and other treatments such as gum contouring and veneers.
