Research has shown that when you smile you can trick your brain into thinking you are happy, even if you don’t feel particularly good humored. If smiling can help eliminate stress, elevate mood and possibly even boost immunity, then shouldn’t we be smiling all of the time? Watson Family Dentistry has some cosmetic procedures that can really make you feel like smiling.
Professional teeth whitening is much more effective than the products available over-the-counter. For one thing, our professional grade whitening gel is stronger. Additionally, your custom-fitted mouth trays keep the whitening gel closer to your teeth. This makes for a more comfortable experience, especially for those with sensitive teeth. Plus, the result is a brighter smile.
Creating a movie star smile is possible when our Watson Family dentists use their technical expertise and artistic abilities to place custom veneers. Only your dentist will know you are wearing veneers! These thin, porcelain sheets are bonded to the front of your existing teeth to transform your smile. Veneers are stain resistant and can fix or camouflage a host of smile imperfections. These include tooth discoloration that whitening can’t remove, like tetracycline stains. Misshapen, cracked and chipped teeth can also be corrected. Veneers can also be used to hide minor gaps in your smile. We will consult with you before designing your smile and our dentists will handcraft your veneers to fit your needs and work within your budget.
Bonding can sometimes be used to repair teeth that are chipped, cracked or discolored. It isn’t as strong as a porcelain veneer and doesn’t last as long but it can improve the appearance of a tooth. Bonding can also be used to fill in spaces between the top of the tooth and the gums caused by receding gums.
Cerec® Same-Day Dental Crowns
Crowns can be used to cover up teeth that are too small or misshapen teeth. Our state-of-the-art Cerec milling machine allows the procedure to be completed in one visit to our office. Cerec crowns are made of a tooth-colored ceramic block so they look and function just like a real tooth.Schedule a Smile Improvement Consultation
