What Can I Accomplish Through Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry allows patients to undergo various treatments that can transform their smile. These procedures can improve or conceal:
- Misshapen teeth
- Gummy smiles
- Worn teeth
While these services can typically address these imperfections effectively, it is important to note that patients with extensive misalignment, overlapping, or gaps may require traditional orthodontic services to correct these issues.
Services We Provide
Dr. Booty believes that each and every patient deserves his full attention and hands-on care. He will dedicate the time needed to create the best results for all cosmetic dentistry procedures including:
- Teeth Whitening
- Professional teeth whitening provides dramatic results for a brighter smile in just one treatment. The high-quality solution used for this treatment can also decrease dental sensitivity.
- Porcelain Veneers
- These thin porcelain shells can be applied to the front of one or more teeth to create a more cohesive smile by concealing cracks, chips, minor misalignment, and more. Your veneers can be custom created and shade matched to your surrounding teeth for seamless placement.
- Dental Bonding
- A tooth-colored composite resin is used to fill gaps, cavities, or cracks to reestablish the natural shape of your tooth.
- Gum Contouring
- This procedure serves to alter the gum line for more even exposure of the tooth and gum by removing excess gum tissue.
- Smile Makeover
- For patients who desire widespread alteration to their smile, this treatment combines multiple procedures for a complete transformation.
Patient satisfaction is of the utmost importance to Dr. Booty. He can offer a wax-up that you can try on to see how your end results will look so that you can make any adjustments you would like. Prior to undergoing any procedures, you will attend a consultation with Dr. Booty during which you can discuss your goals, and he can conduct an evaluation to determine the best treatment plan for you.
Dr. Booty is personally invested in the goals of each patient and will work with you to ensure that you receive the most effective and efficient cosmetic treatment available.
Am I a Candidate for These Treatments?
Patients who wish to improve the aesthetics of their smile must first meet several requirements. Patients should be in generally good overall oral health, and will also need to have any outstanding issues—such as gum disease—addressed. If there is any indication that you have a root canal infection, this must also be treated before you can undergo any cosmetic procedures. In other words, any restorative needs will need to be addressed prior to receiving cosmetic treatment. Undergoing cosmetic procedures with any of these conditions can be detrimental to your oral health.
