Everyone wants straight, white teeth, but not everyone is blessed with them naturally. Cosmetic dentistry procedures are a great way to achieve a stellar smile when either genetics or insufficient brushing have let you down. These procedures help you to look and feel better, and some of them add to the functionality of your mouth. Plus, you are more likely to take better care of teeth you are proud to show off, thereby improving your oral health.
Among the cosmetic dentistry options available to Miami-area patients at Garcia | Mayoral Dentistry are:
Patients who have only tried over-the-counter whitening products are usually blown away by the results achieved by a professional, in-office whitening. During this 90-minute treatment, our dentists will polish your teeth and then apply a hydrogen peroxide-based bleaching agent. They will then shine blue light technology on the teeth to maximize the effects. The result can be teeth that are up to eight shades whiter. Best of all, the procedure is safe and pain-free.
For patients who prefer it, our team can also set you up with an at-home whitening kit. In the comfort of your own home, you can use one of our dentist-recommended products that improve the brightness of your teeth. We offer whitening strips, tray whitening, paint-on whitening and whitening toothpaste and mouthwash to provide you with every option possible.
While orthodontics used to mean having to tolerate metal braces on your teeth for years, Invisalign is a faster, inconspicuous way to straighten the teeth. Invisalign uses a series of aligners custom-designed to fit your specific mouth and gradually nudge your teeth into the proper position. Best of all, these aligners are clear and hard to spot, so you will not have to make your teeth look worse while in the process of making your teeth look better.
For patients who want teeth that are a particular size, shape and shade of white, the easiest approach is usually veneers, which are prosthetics that attach to the frontside of your natural teeth. You can get a veneer to cover up a single chipped tooth, or a whole row of veneers to conceal yellowed or misaligned teeth.
Bonding is one of the least intense ways to tackle imperfections on the teeth such as cracks, discoloration and decay. Our doctors will sculpt and smooth resin that matches the color of your teeth to cover these unwanted flaws. Bonding can also be used to alter the size of the teeth or fill in excessive space between teeth to help create a more beautiful smile.
Missing teeth can be a source of great insecurity and stifle your willingness to flash a smile. Implants are a successful way to fill in any gaps with a permanent prosthetic. Our dentists will perform surgery to secure a post to your jawbone, and use that post to attach a realistic-looking tooth that aligns perfectly with the rest of your mouth. In addition to helping you chew and speak normally, dental implants help to strengthen the health of your jaw.
