Yes. Cosmetic dentistry uses dental restorations, whitening treatments, and other minimally invasive procedures to improve the appearance of your teeth and smile. Cosmetic treatments are elective, so they aren’t usually covered by dental insurance, but they can help improve your oral health.
Redmond Dentists offers various cosmetic dentistry services, including:
Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain shells bonded to your incisors (the teeth at the front of your mouth). Veneers mask minor imperfections, like chips, gaps between the teeth, and pointy or unusually shaped teeth. Because porcelain is tough and durable, you can continue to bite and chew confidently.
Teeth whitening uses bleaching solutions or lasers to remove tooth stains caused by tobacco, coffee, or the natural aging process. Redmond Dentists offers two types of in-office teeth whitening, including Philips Zoom!® teeth whitening and LaserSmile®.
Dental implants replace your tooth roots to address a missing tooth or more than one. They’re titanium posts inserted into your upper or lower jaw. The implants fuse with your bone after placement and support crowns, bridges, or implant-retained dentures.
A dental crown covers a damaged or decaying tooth. Crowns envelop all of the tooth enamel above the gum line, restoring your biting and chewing abilities. They can last up to 10 years with good oral hygiene and routine checkups.
A bridge fills a gap in your smile where a tooth used to be. Bridges have a false tooth (pontic) and two crowns or a metal framework. The pontic replaces your natural tooth, and the crowns or framework hold the bridge in place, preventing it from shifting.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear, removable aligners to improve the alignment of your teeth and jaw. It’s much more discreet than metal braces but provides comparable results in many cases.
No. If you have cavities or another oral health problem, Redmond Dentists treats those issues first. After your mouth heals, your provider can develop a personalized care plan and move forward with treatment.
