Beyond a Beautiful Smile
Often, cosmetic procedures are considered as luxury treatments. Few patients realize that many of these services often help to reinforce the health of treated teeth. Procedures such as porcelain crowns and composite fillings protect damaged teeth by covering vulnerable points, providing added strength and function while enhancing a natural aesthetic.
Cosmetic treatments can also be combined to comprehensively restore health and function to an entire smile. In cases of total mouth rehabilitation, also known as cosmetic smile makeovers, patients may receive dental implants to replace missing or severely damaged teeth, followed by the placement of crowns and veneers to cover other flawed teeth.
Cosmetic Dental Services
Fairfield cosmetic dentist Dr. Toolson uses innovative technology such as CEREC® CAD/CAM technology and digital x-rays to ensure your cosmetic treatment improves all aspects of your smile. Following a thorough examination of your dentition, cosmetic dental procedures are tailored to address any existing dental problems and prevent the development of future problems. In the long-run, this multi-faceted approach to cosmetic dentistry ensure lasting results and improved long-term oral health.
Depending on your dental needs and smile goals, your cosmetic treatment plan may include one or more of the following treatments:
Opalescence Take-Home Whitening Kits: This at-home bleaching treatment uses customized trays to adhere whitening gel to teeth. Unlike other bleaching treatments which can cause teeth sensitivity, Opalescence bleaching gel contains potassium nitrate and fluoride which help to reduce sensitivity and cavities while strengthening tooth enamel.
Composite Fillings: Made of tooth-colored resin, composite fillings are a safe, more aesthetic alternative to amalgam metal fillings. Most often used to fill cavities, composite fillings do not contract with exposure to hot or cold elements, preventing teeth from cracking and becoming overly sensitive.
Crowns: At Fairfield Family Dental, we use CEREC® in-office milling technology to create customized crowns in just one appointment. With this advanced technology, digital scans are taken of the patient’s dentition and are used to create a restoration that blends in seamlessly with the rest of their smile. As the crown is made of durable porcelain, it is highly resilient, providing added function.
Veneers: Veneers are recommended for patients with deep intrinsic staining, chips, cracks, or misshapen teeth. To apply, the tooth is lightly buffed, ensuring a secure bond of the porcelain veneer to the tooth’s surface.
