Cosmetic dentistry can be as simple as whitening your teeth

 

Cosmetic dentistry strategies vary in complexity from simple teeth whitening to bridge techniques that feature traditional dental implant supports through a variety of alternative support systems. 

We use the Zoom teeth whitening system because of its ability to safely make your teeth look several shades brighter after even one visit. Invisalign® clear braces are similarly subtle in their ability to straighten your teeth without the visual downside of braces. Plus, you can still brush your teeth without any problems. 

On a more advanced level, porcelain veneers remain a popular cosmetic dentistry option because we can shape them to fit with the natural alignment of your teeth. The color shading also can be adjusted so it matches the rest of your smile without calling attention to the presence of veneers. 

Full arch restorations are appropriate for cases that require the extraction of multiple teeth. “All on four” is a technique that features the placement of a temporary bridge anchored on four dental implants, all accomplished the same day as the extractions. 

A hybrid bridge refers to dental acrylic and denture teeth that are attached to at least four dental implants by small screws. This differs from a full denture, which is not attached to the jaw at any point. Dr. Lucas also uses a LOCATOR brand implant attachment system that snaps in place on a socket. 

We welcome the opportunity to help you with your dental care, including cosmetic dentistry services that help you enjoy life to its fullest.
