Our cosmetic dentist in Aurora focus on the aesthetics of your smile and what you can do to make your smile shine. Cosmetic dentistry aims to fix some imperfections like chipped teeth, stains, spacing issues, and more. Dover Dental Center is proud to offer three major options in the cosmetic dentistry field: veneers, teeth whitening, and bonding.
Dental veneers are thin coverings that are placed over the front part of your tooth. Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are custom-made to fit your unique tooth. The material is strong and long-lasting with a natural-looking surface and does not stain easily, making them the go-to for a veneer option. They mimic the natural appearance of a tooth and can be used to correct a wide range of dental issues, including:
The process for veneers is simple and at Dover Dental Center, we want to make sure you know each step while you are in our dentist’s chair.
We recommend scheduling a follow-up appointment with us a few weeks after the procedure to make sure the veneers are properly placed.
Teeth can become stained from drinking coffee, tea or wine and even from growing older. The most common stains are extrinsic stains and can develop on the outer layer of your teeth (your enamel). We use a special in-office whitening bleach that’s stronger than the bleach found in the at-home whitening kits.
Teeth whitening works by thoroughly breaking up the stains on your enamel, oxidizing the structure underneath, and overall brightening the smile of your teeth’s appearance. Everyone’s teeth are different and based on your specific needs, we offer different methods to give your teeth a whiter shade. Even though there are different whitening treatments to choose from, the benefits are the same: a whiter smile. Other benefits include:
Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material is applied and hardened with a special light, ultimately bonding the material to the tooth with the result of a restored smile for the patient. Unlike veneers and crowns, there is a minimal amount of tooth enamel removal. There are many advantages of dental bonding, including bonding being the easiest and least expensive process of cosmetic dental procedures. The treatment can normally be done in one office visit and anesthesia isn’t required.
Bonding material can chip so it’s important to avoid habits such as biting your fingernails, chewing on ice and eating hard foods. Based on your oral habits, dental bonding can last from 3 to 10 years before you need touch-ups or replacements.
At Dover Dental Center we aim to fix some imperfections like chipped teeth, stains, spacing issues, and more. As your cosmetic dentist in Aurora, we look forward to helping your smile shine and giving you the confidence boost you deserve with your pearly whites.
