Your smile is one of your most important features. Dentistry is continually evolving, and with a variety of advanced treatment options, achieving a beautiful, healthy, aesthetic smile is made easy for patients of all ages.
If you follow the recommended dental routine (brush three times a day, floss regularly, and receive checkups for your dental health every six months) but still aren’t happy with your smile, cosmetic dentistry can help. No matter if you have a chipped tooth or want your teeth all neatly straight and bright white, the solution to your problem is Kenmar Dental’s cosmetic dentistry options! When you come in for your next treatment (or your very first), we can discuss the right treatment for your teeth to help you smile with confidence.
Defining cosmetic dentistry is simple: we offer many options to help your smile become brighter, more natural, and straighter than before. Unlike corrective dental work, cosmetic dentistry is elective and depends greatly on the overall health of your teeth and gums. Some of the cosmetic treatments you can choose from include:
In short, cosmetic dentistry can be an alternative to expensive orthodontic and dental work. Although it may sound like cosmetic fixes are temporary or ineffective, we only offer treatment options that will help our patients improve their smiles in a permanent and long-lasting way. Cosmetic dentistry isn’t a simple makeover; it’s a complete change for brighter and healthier teeth.
If you're considering cosmetic dental treatment, ask yourself a few simple questions:
If you've answered yes to any of these questions, cosmetic dentistry may be the answer you've been looking for!
Over-the-counter teeth whitening kits can be useful for those that only want their teeth to be a bit brighter, maybe one of two shades whiter. These teeth whitening kits, however, are not designed to be a be-all-end-all solution to stained teeth. Many use these kits incorrectly or may not find them to be effective at all.
Instead of trying to brighten your teeth yourself, come into the clinic to have your teeth whitened quickly and safely. We use the very latest whitening technology, so you’ll typically see three to eight shades of color difference depending on the amount of time applied and the number of visits. Within a single hour, you will be able to visibly see results.
If you worry about the safety of a teeth whitening procedure, you can rest assured that every procedure is performed under the supervision of our dentists. One of the only side effects that you may experience is more sensitivity to hot and cold that should fade over time.
Perhaps you find your teeth a bit crooked, or you have a chipped tooth that is otherwise in good health. Maybe you even have gaps in your teeth that you worry may have to be corrected with orthodontic work. Instead of expensive repairs, veneers might be the option you are looking for. Veneers are thin porcelain coverings that are applied to teeth to make them more aesthetically pleasing, straighter, and whiter.
The procedure is fairly straightforward. We first take an impression of your teeth, much like we would for crowns or implants. With the veneers created to match the shape of your teeth perfectly, the application begins. We’ll remove a small amount of enamel from the tooth as an anchor for the veneer, then the dentist bonds the veneer to the tooth, giving it a natural look and feel. Within a single visit, your smile will look amazing.
Veneers are not recommended for those that grind or clench their teeth as the veneer can chip with enough force.
