Cosmetic Dentistry - Boynton Beach, Fl
Cosmetic dentistry is the art of transforming a person’s smile from one they are hesitant to show into one of their dreams. In today’s society, people are drawn to the beautiful and welcoming smiles seen in the media and hope to have the same. If you are not perfectly happy with your smile, you are not alone. Many cover their mouths when they laugh and hide their teeth when photographed. Fortunately though, an experienced cosmetic dentist can make dreams come true.
Honestly, as a cosmetic dentist in South Florida, I experience this every day. New patients enter my office for the first time, and they literally refuse to smile with their teeth showing. We sit down and discuss what embarrasses them. We work together to address all of these worries and begin to imagine their smile makeover. When treatment is completed, the very same people are looking for every opportunity to show their new smile.
However, people are often reluctant to meet with a cosmetic dentist because they are unfamiliar with potential treatment options. Furthermore, finding reliable information on the internet about aesthetic dentistry is challenging. That’s why we offer a free cosmetic dentistry consultation.
How Many Different Procedures Are Considered Cosmetic Dentistry?
If your teeth are stained or discolored, teeth whitening has become extremely effective. Various products exist, but please consult with your cosmetic dentist to determine the product that will meet your needs.
Veneers are extremely thin pieces of porcelain bonded onto the front side of your teeth that are custom made to create the perfect shape, color, dimensions, and contour. Porcelain veneers are used to treat discolored teeth, gaps between teeth, chipped teeth, rotated teeth, black spaces between teeth, small teeth, and gummy smiles. As a cosmetic dental office in Boynton Beach, Lumineers are an extremely common type of veneer used in our practice. Lumineers are a special type of veneer that are made even thinner , so minimal or even no tooth structure needs to be taken off the front side of a tooth.
Tooth colored fillings (also referred to as Tooth colored bondings.)
Advancements in tooth colored fillings have truly changed the scope of dentistry. Now, tooth colored fillings can be shaped and polished to perfectly blend with natural teeth. Tooth colored fillings can even be used on all of your front teeth to create a new, radiant smile. Chipped teeth, short teeth, small teeth, discolored teeth, gaps between teeth, teeth with cavities, black spaces between teeth, and unsightly silver fillings can all be treated with tooth colored fillings.
A dental implant is essentially a titanium screw that is placed into the jawbone. On top of this screw, a nicely contoured and colored crown (also referred to as a “cap”) can be placed to replace the missing tooth. People will not be able to recognize that the tooth is not your own. Furthermore, several dental implants can be used to replace numerous missing teeth.
Orthodontics & Invisalign
Orthodontics and Invisalign use tooth movement to straighten teeth and create beautiful results and proper function.
In most situations, a cosmetic dentist uses a combination of these techniques to create an esthetic and radiant smile. Before you begin, the first step of your Smile Makeover is a comprehensive evaluation to create a simulated picture of the ideal end result, which is often called a Smile Design.
Can Cosmetic Dentistry Enhance My Facial Features?
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, you may subconsciously try to avoid people seeing your smile. You may cover your mouth when laughing, hide your teeth when photographed, or shield your teeth with your lips when speaking. Years of straining your facial muscles to keep your smile a secret may alter your facial tone over time. Cosmetic dentistry can transform your smile into something you will want to show off. When you speak, laugh, and take pictures, you will comfortably and proudly smile, reducing the strain on your facial muscles and tone.
Also, missing teeth can affect your facial features. If a patient has been missing several teeth for an extended period of time, the jawbone may resorb and cause the cheek to slightly sink in that area. Thus, if you lose a tooth, you should try to replace it as soon as possible. Dental implants and dental bridges are excellent options to replace missing teeth and restore your smile and facial features.
What Is A Smile Design?
The most important part of your first appointment with us is to speak freely about your aesthetic goals and desires. Try to picture your ideal smile and express your thoughts. As experienced cosmetic dentists, we listens attentively, understand your desires, and will work with you to design your perfect smile.
Many factors are considered when creating a natural welcoming smile, such as:
- Curvature of your lips
- Display of your teeth in all environments (smiling, laughing, speaking, and relaxing)
- Facial dimensions and shape
- Midline of your teeth aligning with the midline of your face
- Facial musculature
- Healthy, beautiful teeth (without any stained, discolored, chipped, rotated, missing, or small teeth)
To ensure that you and Dr. Eriks have the same smile in mind, a custom simulated picture can be created to see the ideal result before you even start. This is called your Smile Design. You are essentially designing your new smile with your cosmetic dentist. The Smile Design allows you to see your finished Smile Makeover before you even begin, so you can make any desired changes and there are no surprises when the cosmetic dental treatment is completed.
What is A Smile Makeover?
A Smile Makeover is a complete transformation of your smile from one you are uncomfortable showing to one that you are proud of in every situation.
The first step of a Smile Makeover is a complete evaluation by Dr. Eriks. You should feel comfortable sharing your goals, worries, desires and hesitations. You and Dr. Eriks will create a Smile Design together, which is a simulated picture of the ideal end result. All undesirable dental conditions, like stained, chipped and rotated teeth, will be addressed. Numerous dental procedures, such as teeth whitening and porcelain veneers, may be used harmoniously to make your perfect smile a reality.
Do You Offer A Free Cosmetic Consultation?
