Which Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment Is Right For You?
posted: Oct. 12, 2021.
There are many ways we can help you achieve your dream smile.
We know how important a beautiful, healthy smile is for our patients. Every day, we talk to people who feel embarrassed or self-conscious because of their smiles, and the goal of your White Bear Lake, MN, dentists Dr. Scott Kron and Dr. Jason Ross is to provide the latest and most advanced cosmetic dentistry options to help people get smiles that make them feel and look their best. Meet our most popular cosmetic treatment options:
Who doesn’t want a brighter smile? Unfortunately, the foods we consume every day can certainly take their toll. If you want to get a visibly brighter smile in under one hour, then you’ve come to the right place! Our dental team can get your smile several shades whiter in just a single whitening session with our powerful and highly effective whitening gel and laser dentistry. Remove stubborn stains that at-home whitening can’t, and get results immediately.
Who is this treatment right for? Anyone who has yellow external stains caused by aging or a diet that wants a drastically whiter smile can benefit from whitening treatment.
Dealing with a chipped tooth? Have a small gap between your front teeth that you want to cover? If so, dental bonding may be the ideal cosmetic dentistry to suit your needs. During bonding, our White Bear Lake, MN, dental team will pick the shade of composite resin that most closely matches the tooth. From there, we will roughen the surface of the tooth with a special liquid and then apply the resin. We will shape, contour, and trim the resin to achieve the ideal look. Then the resin is hardened permanently to the tooth with a laser.
Who is this treatment right for? Bonding is ideal for someone who has minor flaws in one or two teeth that they want to have corrected. Bonding can hide small discolorations, chips, cracks, and gaps between teeth while also correcting unevenness and asymmetry in teeth.
Sometimes a tooth is just slightly longer than another or may even be a little too pointy or sharp. If it’s enough to make the tooth stand out from the rest of your smile then our dental team may recommend tooth reshaping. This conservative cosmetic dentistry involves shaving off a small amount of enamel to reshape and resize a tooth.
Who is this treatment right for? Reshaping is ideal for someone with excessively pointy or elongated teeth who want to make teeth look more even in shape and size.
Veneers do what simple bonding just can’t and helps hide widespread and more serious flaws in a smile. If you have cracks, chips, discolorations, slightly crooked teeth, or other imperfections that impact your smile’s appearance as a whole then these thin porcelain shells can help recreate your dream smile. These layers of porcelain are bonded to the front of your teeth, providing a new smile that is the ideal color and shape that you want.
Who is this treatment right for? Anyone who has strong, healthy teeth that want to correct and hide cosmetic flaws in their smiles. Anyone who wants that perfect “Hollywood” smile. Anyone who wants a straighter smile without resorting to braces.
