Smiling with confidence makes you feel great. A beautiful smile is also an important social and professional asset. Yet there are many people who avoid showing their teeth in public or in photographs because they don't like what they see. If that describes you, then why not start the process of getting the smile you've always wanted with a smile makeover?
A smile makeover goes beyond simply responding to dental problems as they arise. It's a comprehensive smile-rejuvenation plan that's uniquely suited to your own facial features and aesthetic preferences. The results can be quite dramatic — both in terms of how your will look and how you will feel.
Common Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures include:
Dental bonding and reshaping
Dental Bonding and Reshaping
Do you have small imperfections on the surfaces of your front teeth? Dental bonding could be the answer. Composite bonding is a popular option to erase the appearance of small cracks, chips or gaps in your teeth.
Holland Dental offers dental bonding that does not require numbing medication. The resin material is first matched to your teeth's color. It is then hand-shaped and smoothed over your tooth to blend in with the overall structure. This quick and easy process gives you immediate results with zero recovery time.
The fastest way to give yourself a brighter smile is to remove years-old stains from your tooth enamel. But over-the-counter whiteners only work on minor stains. Holland Dental uses a professional-grade gel to whiten your teeth for the deepest, brightest results. Professional whitening can give you dazzling results that will make your smile look years younger.
Tooth whitening is appropriate for adults and older teens who have healthy teeth and gum tissues. We recommend whitening before updating any new dental work, as restorations cannot be bleached to match your teeth after they are placed.
Veneers are the best and most dramatic option for a complete smile makeover. Porcelain veneers are thin restorations that are custom-made to fit over the front of healthy teeth, instantly masking cosmetic issues such as chipped, stained, or crooked enamel.
The typical dental veneers process takes 2-3 visits to complete, with each one about two weeks apart.
A dental implant is a restoration that replicates the function of anatomical tooth roots. Once it’s integrated with the supporting bone, your implant supports a fixed prosthesis on top of it, such as a crown or bridge. Since implants are very strong, Dr. Holland can pair them together to anchor multiple tooth restorations.
Untreated tooth decay can easily spread to adjacent tooth structures. Dr. Holland will screen your bite regularly to detect the decay early, treating it while the cavities are still small. Our modest composite restorations match your natural tooth enamel and provide conservative, attractive results that are healthier for your teeth than traditional silver fillings.
Not all cavities hurt or cause tooth sensitivity. Thankfully, we can detect cavities early during your regular dental checkups in our Indianapolis office.
Like fillings, inlays fit inside your tooth. They're typically made out of a tooth-colored material like ceramic or porcelain or a special dental composite. Defective fillings can be replaced with inlays and bonded to your tooth.
An onlay also fits inside the tooth but also extends onto the chewing surface of a back tooth. It's difficult to determine if inlays or onlays can be used instead of crowns or caps. Contact us today to schedule an appointment to determine if you are a candidate for tooth-colored inlay or onlay.
