Dr. Anne Nicholas and her team of specialists are proud to help patients achieve the healthy, beautiful, functioning smiles they deserve. We have helped many patients achieve the smile aesthetics they have always wanted, and you can be counted among them.
If you have smile flaws that make you hesitant to smile with confidence, cosmetic dentistry treatments can change all of that, changing how you feel about your smile and how others perceive your smile. After all, your smile is typically the first thing people notice about you when you meet.
A Pretty Smile Starts at Home
Also known as esthetic dentistry, cosmetic dentistry improves your smile and self-image. Of course, having healthy teeth and gums is vital to an attractive smile. So it all begins at home with daily oral hygiene care – brushing, flossing, limiting sugary foods and drinks – and seeing your dentist at least twice a year for checkups and professional cleanings.
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Beyond that, there are many things Dr. Nicholas can do to improve your smile flaws. Generally, dental crowns, bridges, bonding, inlays and onlays, dentures, and implants are considered dental restorations, while dental veneers and teeth whitening are typically considered cosmetic dental treatments. Perhaps your teeth are discolored, crowded or gapped. By using the cosmetic dentistry option of dental veneers, all of those issues can be addressed at one time.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
Do you have teeth that are misshapen, chipped, discolored or missing? A full-mouth reconstruction is ideal if you are weary of the decayed, damaged, broken, cracked, infected, or missing teeth in your smile.
The benefits of full mouth reconstruction include:
-Restoring your teeth and bite pattern
-Provide better jaw alignment
-Give your teeth the appearance you want
-Improve your oral health as there will be less risk of bacterial growth and infections
-Lessen the risk of tooth decay and tooth loss, periodontal disease and other dental issues
-Fully restore the function of the teeth and upper and lower jaw
-A more confident smile that you will be proud to show off at any special events!
