Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers allow a patient to change the shape, size, color, and spacing of their teeth to whatever they want to create their perfect smile. Extremely thin ceramic shells are bonded to the front of the teeth that are designed to look like healthy white enamel, and once in place, they instantly improve a patient’s appearance. Veneers can be used to mask chips, cracks, stains, and gaps all at the same time to completely transform smiles.

Metal-Free Restorations

Thanks to the latest advancements in dental materials, you’re no longer limited to just getting a silver or gold crown should you need one of your teeth repaired. Now, our team can provide patients with restorations made of 100% dental porcelain. This material can be used to recreate natural dental structure down to the finest detail, even mimicking how real enamel reflects light. With one, only you and your dentist will be able to tell which tooth isn’t original!

Direct Bonding

If you have just one troublesome flaw in your smile that you’d love to get rid of, then direct bonding is the perfect solution. We use a specially-colored composite resin to cover minor stains, thin gaps, and small cracks. Applied directly to the tooth, your dentist will mold it into a pleasing addition that looks just like healthy enamel. The entire process only takes about an hour, but the results can be trusted to look great for a decade or more.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Woman with smooth skinDo you want to know more about how you can transform your smile through cosmetic dentistry? With various treatment options available and many different factors to consider, it is quite normal to have a few lingering questions. Fortunately, we have answers! In this handy FAQ section, our expert staff at Dental Wellness of Lexington goes over some of the most common questions we hear from patients regarding cosmetic dentistry. If you still have questions after reading the information below or feel ready to schedule an initial consultation with a cosmetic dentist, do not hesitate to give our office a call!

Do Porcelain Veneers Stain?

Porcelain veneers can both conceal cracks, chips and other minor dental flaws while also brightening your smile. A beautiful smile with porcelain veneers will stay whiter longer thanks to porcelain’s stain-resistant properties. While they may eventually become discolored over a long period of time, you can keep your veneers looking vibrant by limiting your consumption of dark foods and drinks. Coffee, black tea, red wine and pasta dishes with red sauce can all contribute to staining over time.

Can Cosmetic Dentistry Improve the Health of My Smile?

While cosmetic dentistry primarily focuses on aesthetics, many cosmetic procedures can also boost the health of your smile. For example, dental bonding can restore and support a chipped tooth before the small chip develops into a more serious fracture. In addition, by filling in dental gaps, metal-free restorations prevent bite problems from developing and allow the wearer to eat a healthy, balanced diet. Other treatments, such as Botox, can reduce jaw pain associated with teeth grinding and TMJ disorder.

How Long Will It Take to Improve My Smile?

You can improve the appearance of your smile in just one hour at Dental Wellness of Lexington, depending on which treatment you pursue. In-practice teeth whitening and dental bonding can typically be completed in just a single visit to our office, offering dramatic results in a short amount of time. Other procedures, such as porcelain veneers or metal-free restorations, will more likely involve at least a pair of appointments with one of our cosmetic dentists.  

Can Cosmetic Dentistry Benefit Children?

Yes! There are many cases in which cosmetic dentistry can benefit teenagers and even young children. Every parent knows how active children can often trip, fall or accidentally collide with another kid on the playground. If your young son or daughter unexpectedly chips their tooth, dental bonding may be able to repair the damage. For adolescents who might feel insecure about their smile, professional teeth whitening can often help boost their confidence.

Am I a Good Candidate?

You can likely answer this question yourself by considering this one simple question: are you happy with the way your smile looks? If the answer is “no,” then you are likely a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry. Most adults (and some children) who are in good oral health can benefit from cosmetic dentistry treatments. If you have gum disease or another oral infection, those issues will need to be treated first before cosmetically enhancing your smile.
