Fromuth & Langlois Dental is dedicated to helping patients achieve positive oral health not just today, but in the long-term as well. While oral health is certainly the main priority, that doesn’t mean your smile’s appearance doesn’t matter. In fact, cosmetic dental treatments are quite popular with our patients, and for good reason. A beautiful smile has the potential to change your life, and cosmetic dentistry from our dentists can help you achieve that goal. Give our office a call to schedule your next smile makeover!
One of the most comprehensive cosmetic treatments available today is porcelain veneers. Unlike the composite resin veneers of the past, porcelain ensures that your smile looks as natural as possible. Each veneer is carefully customized to fit over your smile’s imperfections exactly. Once we’ve designed and fabricated your veneers, we’ll attach them to your teeth using a unique bonding agent. This ensures that they stay secure, even as you chew your favorite foods. While most porcelain veneers can last 10 to 15 years before needing any kind of replacement, you’ll want to make sure you practice daily oral care and maintain routine visits.
Dr. Fromuth and Dr. Langlois want to ensure all patients that the materials they use to restore teeth are safe, durable and metal-free. The last thing patients want is for their cosmetic dentistry to look unnatural, which is why we’re proud to utilize Emax and Zirconia ceramics as well as SonicFill composites to restore damaged teeth. Regardless of the type of treatment you need, we’ll make sure that you’re happy with your restoration and the current appearance of your new smile!
Chips, cracks and discoloration can appear in teeth over time, leaving your smile less than desirable. However, not everyone wants to go all the way in terms of treatment, nor spend as much money when they only have minor improvements they’d like to make. Cosmetic bonding utilizes the same composite resin material traditionally used for tooth-colored fillings to hide minor imperfections. Once applied and shaped over your tooth, we’ll use a curing light to instantly harden the material. When properly maintained, your bonding should last at least 10 years without issue.
Traditional metal braces can be effective at realigning teeth, but they are not ideal for everyone. For example, if you’re an adult who cares about their appearance, Invisalign clear aligners may be a better solution. If you have only mild to moderate levels of realignment to resolve, clear aligners can make it easy to complete treatment discretely and without metal brackets and wires. During your consultation, our office will determine if Invisalign treatment is right for you.
One of the more popular forms of cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening gives you the opportunity to give your smile a boost. Whether you choose to do it in our office via BOOST Whitening from Opalescence or Zoom! take-home whitening trays from Philips, you can expect a smile that is several shades whiter! In-office whitening only takes an hour to complete and is ideal for those with important upcoming events. If you’d prefer to whiten teeth on your own time or are in need of routine touch-ups to keep your teeth white, take-home whitening trays may be a better option.
Cosmetic dentistry is not something that should be pursued without some planning. With so many methods to choose from, it can feel overwhelming at first. But with the help of advanced software, our office can create a simulated image of what your future smile could look like, whether it’s after porcelain veneers, teeth whitening or another cosmetic or restorative treatment. By providing us with a photo, we can upload it to our digital imaging software and help you build better expectations for your future smile makeover!
