Historically, restorative dentistry involved the diagnosis and treatment of diseased or damaged teeth. In today’s society, we understand the importance of a healthy and attractive smile.
Whether you live in image-conscious Scottsdale or a quiet suburb, and regardless of your age; chipped, broken, stained, or misaligned teeth can cause you to shy away from the camera and hold back a smile. From repairing a small chip on a front tooth to designing an overall rehabilitation, Aesthetic Dentistry of Glendale can transform your smile and change your life. We’ve been doing it for years, for hundreds of patients.
Nearly every current dental treatment involves some element of aesthetics, including:
- Teeth whitening
- Replacing silver fillings with tooth-colored composite
- Crowns and bridges
- Dental implants
Your smile makeover starts with a consultation, where we listen to your goals and desires. Then we develop a plan to get you there. Exciting advancements in techniques and materials make your beautiful smile a reality. To ensure the best possible outcome we use digital photography, molds, diagnostic lab tests, and the best available materials.
Bonding, sometimes overlooked in the cosmetic dentistry, offers many benefits compared to conventional silver fillings. A significant amount of tooth structure must be removed for a silver amalgam filling, since it is simply compressed into the prepped tooth without a bonding agent.
A bond is a tooth-colored filling placed in or on a tooth. Only the affected area is removed, so it is a more conservative restoration, requiring less drilling and often no anesthetic. The white resin is painlessly and securely adhered to the tooth with a special light. Bonds may be repaired if chipped or stained (a silver filling requires a complete redo). They blend well with your natural teeth, so they are not noticeable. Durability depends on the size, location, and condition of the tooth before the procedure. But typically, they are quite long-lasting.
Don’t let less-than-perfect teeth hold you back. Smile confidently with a great new look from Aesthetic Dentistry of Glendale.
