Cosmetic dentistry is much more than simple vanity. It is an important aspect of proper oral care. Teeth can become unsightly over time from staining or because of gaps, flaws, chips or other problems with alignment or tooth shape. While it’s true that correcting these problems will lead to a more beautiful, confident smile, it can also prevent problematic conditions from arising. Gaps between teeth or teeth that are crowded and out of place are difficult to clean and are often problems spots for cavities and gum disease.
At Clark Family Dental, we’re proud to offer several cosmetic dentistry options to keep your smile both attractive and healthy:
Teeth Whitening – Teeth become naturally stained over time from tea and coffee, dark colored sauces and fruits, tobacco use, or even just age. It’s a simple matter to restore the teeth to their fresh natural whiteness. We offer both in-office whitening and take-home whitening and Clark Family Dental. For our in-office service, we take care of all the details so that after a single one-hour session, your teeth are sparkling again. If you prefer the comfort and convenience of your own home, we can provide you with custom made teeth whitening trays and professional-strength whitening gel with instructions on how to use them, and after three or four days you’ll have shiny white teeth again.
Invisalign – Standard wire braces can be daunting – they’re unsightly, awkward and sometimes even painful. But don’t let that stop you from seeking straighter teeth – well-aligned teeth are easier to clean and care for than crooked ones, and nothing helps confidence like a tidy smile. Invisalign aligners are made of transparent plastic and are nearly invisible when worn. They can be removed when necessary, so they don’t interfere with good oral hygiene practices. Best of all, at Clark Family Dental we give you all the different stages of your treatment at once, so you can switch aligners yourself when it’s time and don’t need to come down for long, painful adjustments.
Dental Bonding – For small problems such as chips, cracks or gaps we can make repairs using a tooth-colored composite resin material. Dental bonds are quick, cheap and easy solutions to minor problems on single or just a few teeth.
Porcelain Veneers – For problems that are larger or more extensive than dental bonding can fix, we also offer porcelain veneers, which can be used to fill in multiple gaps or repair badly damaged teeth. Porcelain veneers are becoming very popular, since they’re cheaper, faster and easier to install than full crowns.
