Cosmetic Dental Treatments
Cosmetic Dentistry is part technical skill and part artistic eye. For a Cosmetic Dental Treatment to be successful, Dr. McDonald combines both requirements to produce beautiful smiles with stunning results. At Harvest Dental, we utilize many Cosmetic Dental Treatments, including:
- Invisalign Teeth Straightening
- Teeth Whitening
- Porcelain Veneers
- Tooth Colored Fillings
- Dental Implants and Crowns for Teeth
Invisalign Teeth Straightening
Invisalign Teeth Straightening is one of the most popular Cosmetic Dental Treatments available in our dental office. Invisalign is a great alternative to classic metal braces for straightening your teeth. Also referred to as clear braces, Invisalign is a series of clear plastic aligners that are custom fitted by Dr. McDonald. The series of clear aligners gradually shift your teeth into the desired position and alignment.
In addition to the benefit of being clear and virtually unnoticeable, the aligners are comfortable to wear and can be removed while eating or drinking. The total treatment time will vary dependent on your unique treatment plan, however most our patients achieve the desired result after about a year. Regular dental visits with Dr. McDonald are done to ensure that the teeth are moving into place and straightening properly.
Teeth Whitening is a wonderful Cosmetic Dental Treatment that can restore the brightness and improve your smile. There are many reasons that your teeth’s brightness may dull over time. Drinking coffee, dark sodas, tobacco use and poor oral care can lead to discolored teeth. Thankfully, Dr. McDonald can restore your white teeth with a Teeth Whitening process that uses specific chemicals to bleach the teeth.
There are two options for your Teeth Whitening Treatment. The treatment can be performed at our dental office or at home with a take-home whitening kit. Both treatment options have their benefits. The advantages of an in-office treatment include a shorter treatment time, quicker results, and the ability for Dr. McDonald to control and monitor the bleaching ingredients to help prevent tooth sensitivity. The advantage of the at home whitening kit is the convince of performing the treatment when your schedule allows.
Porcelain Veneers and Lumineers
Porcelain Veneers are a Cosmetic Dental Restoration treatment that is used to conceal many common dental flaws. Dr. McDonald has successfully helped patients just like you with Veneer treatments to repair small chips or cracks, improve tooth shape or size, close small spaces or gaps between teeth, and create a uniform appearance for your smile.
Dental Veneers are thin, tooth colored shells that are slipped over the front surface of the tooth structure and bonded or cemented into place. The Veneers are custom-created to your unique needs and specifications and created to blend in with the surrounding natural teeth producing a great look and feel.
Similar to Veneers Lumineers help restore chipped or damaged teeth. Lumineers are ultra-thin (approximately 0.2 mm) and highly translucent, to replicate the natural appearance of enamel. Traditional veneers may be thicker, requiring the grinding down of your tooth structure.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are a dental treatment used to restore, strengthen, or enhance your natural teeth. Also referred to as a “cap,” crowns can made from a variety of materials which encase a prepared tooth and are cemented in place. Crowns can be used on a single tooth, part of a dental bridge.
CEREC crowns are a unique type of crown that can uses digital impressions to create restorations that look excellent and fit great all done in one single appointment.
If you are looking to replace a set of missing teeth a dental bridge is a great option to restore your smile. Dental bridges come in a variety of sizes and materials providing a wide range of options to best fit the patients needs.
Composites Inlays and Onlays
Dental inlays and onlays are used when old fillings need to be removed or replaced. A dental inlay is similar to a filling and fits incised the cusps tips (top edges) of the tooth. A dental onlay is more extensive and extends over the cusps of the treated tooth. Inlays and onlays are a great minimally invasive option that not only restore the structure of your tooth or teeth but can be blended to match your smile for great nature looking results.
How to Start a Cosmetic Treatment
If you are ready to learn if a Cosmetic Dental Treatment is right for you, the first step is to schedule Free Consultation with our Dentist Office. Dr. McDonald or an experienced member of our dental staff will review your Dental Health History and current situation to see if you are a suitable candidate for treatment. We will then develop a treatment plan and our office staff will review the treatment costs. Dental Insurance may provide coverage for some of your treatment and our office staff can provide you with convenient payment and financing options if needed.
No matter what Cosmetic Treatment you choose, it is important to maintain Regular Dental Exams and Teeth Cleaning appointments. Routine checkups every six months promote good Oral Hygiene and extend the longevity of your Cosmetic Restoration.
