How To Improve Your Smile in Aiea
Want an Improved Smile, Your Aiea Dentist Has Options
Your smile is one of the first features other people see. And when you feel good about your smile, you feel confident about yourself. In some cases, however, dental problems caused by decay or tooth loss can make it difficult and even embarrassing to confidently share our smiles with those around us.
The good news is that thanks to continual advancements in cosmetic dentistry, there are many ways to repair and positively alter the appearance of your teeth. From dental stains and chips to crooked teeth and uneven spacing, cosmetic dentistry can help individuals with minor tooth blemishes or severe dental flaws. Dr. Marana is highly skilled and experienced in Aiea cosmetic dentistry and can perform a variety of smile-enhancing services in our office. We’ve listed some of our most common cosmetic services below.
Common Cosmetic Services
Good news for coffee drinkers: You don’t have to tolerate stained teeth any loner. Discolored smiles can occur for a variety of reasons, including beverages, foods and smoking. A whiter smile is one of the most popular cosmetic requests among patients when they visit our office, and it’s also one of the easiest to achieve. Professional in office whitening performed by Dr. Marana takes as little as one appointment, and results can be noticed shortly after treatment.
If your teeth are misshaped, discolored, gapped or if you simply desire a complete smile makeover, then veneers may be the best cosmetic option for you. Veneers are wafer-thin, tooth-colored shells that are adhered to the front of your teeth to mask a wide range of dental flaws. The end result is a dramatically improved smile that will last many years with proper care.
Invisalign is a great option for someone who desires a straighter smile without the hassle of wearing metal wires and brackets. Patients simply wear a series of clear, custom made aligners on their teeth, which gradually shift the teeth to the final, desired position over the course of treatment. Because they are clear, no one will notice you are wearing them. Unlike traditional braces, the convenience of being able to remove them is also an advantage as you have the freedom to eat what you want and continue oral hygiene as normal.
While crowns also fall into the restorative dentistry category, today’s modern crowns offer cosmetic benefits as well. Today’s crowns are composed of durable porcelain material, which is designed to replicate the original tooth in function as well as mimic the appearance of the natural tooth’s enamel. Crowns can be used to repair teeth that are poorly shaped, severely decayed, fractured, chipped, have large fillings, or to cover spaces between teeth.
Bonding is one of the more conservative dental techniques available, intended to repair chips, mask stains, close gaps and improve alignment. The simple, one-visit treatment improves the appearance of teeth by shaping and polishing composite resin material, which matches the tooth's natural color.
