3 Cosmetic Dental Procedures to Enhance Your Smile

cosmetic dentistry TulsaWhenever you speak, smile, or eat your teeth are on display. Keeping them looking their best will bring out the best in your appearance. If your teeth have become stained or discolored, are crooked or uneven, or one or more teeth are missing, your dentist has a solution that will fit your needs. Cosmetic dentistry is no longer just for the well to do; there are several options available that will enhance your smile.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening has become a popular method with a variety of products available at the local store or online. A consultation with your dentist will identify the best solution for you that is safe and effective producing results that you can’t expect with strips, pastes, rinses, and one size fits all methods. Zoom! Teeth Whitening can lighten teeth up to eight shades in one in-office session. Whitening kits for patients who wish to whiten at home are available, as well.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers provide an ideal solution for a variety of dental maladies. Chipped or uneven dentition, deep dental stain, gaps between teeth … all can appear to be corrected in a couple of dental visits.

Porcelain veneers are very thin, tooth colored shells that are made to match your natural teeth in size, shape, and shade. They are appropriate to correct one or numerous teeth. Your dentist will try them in and when fit is correct, they will be permanently cemented to the front of the teeth requiring treatment.

 Dental Implants

Missing teeth can impact more than your appearance. Your ability to eat the foods you love as well as word pronunciation can be affected following tooth loss. There are several ways to correct missing teeth, but dental implants allows the patient to have their dentition restored to the closest thing to your natural teeth as possible.

Your dentist will review your overall health and perform a complete dental exam to determine bone strength where the implant is needed. Bone augmentation is available if required.

The implant will be surgically placed in gum tissue where bone will fuse to the implant allowing it to become a stable base for the restoration that will eventually cover it.

These are just a few procedures cosmetic dentistry can offer to improve your appearance. Our team welcomes the opportunity to provide all the information needed for a smile makeover. Contact the office of Dr. Mark Massaro at 918-779-3399 today to schedule your visit.
