Cosmetic dentistry services range from crowns, veneers and bridges to teeth replacements offering a high esthetic outcome.
Our cosmetic restorative treatment options for tooth colored bonding can fill in gaps or contour teeth to have an optimal look. In addition, this procedure takes less time than braces to close gaps in patients with an ideal bite. Many times teeth bonding services can be more cost effective and conservative than larger procedures for the right candidates.
Dental Veneers can aid in a highly effective cosmetic look. The teeth are minimally prepared and the veneers are cemented to cover the front portion of the teeth. This can be great for those with existing optimal bite and just looking to increase the general shape, contour and appearance of the fronts of their teeth. For patients with worn teeth, non-ideal bite or in need for tooth protection due to cracks or wear, a more full coverage option will be the best treatment to improve the smile.
Crowns can aid in a excellent cosmetic look to protect and cover teeth that need more protection. This procedure involves more preparation of the teeth, but aids in saving teeth that have cracks, worn or are brittle. In Addition, with the current dental materials available, Dr. Govani will create crowns that look incredibly real or even improve the shade of your smile to be what you have always wanted. Being up front with our team about what you hope to achieve is critical to reaching your goals.
Replacing Teeth Options
When teeth are missing patients can feel self conscious to smile, interact with others or be part of society. Many times this is at a subconscious level, other times patients feel it inhibits their social experiences. Moreover, many times patients feel embarrassed to smile or eat in public if they are missing teeth or do not feel confident in their smile. Dr. Govani has a special place in her heart to give patients the ability to smile again. With our tooth replacement options patients can feel confident in their ability to smile, function and interact with those around them.
When a patient has teeth that can not be saved, many times they feel hopeless. This is not the case, there are options. Dr. Govani is confident in providing comprehensive treatment options for those who need full smile makeovers. She works to deliver patients options to restore their smile to optimal health and achieve a cosmetic outcome. This can range from fixed implants to removable options. Dental implants can be a restorative and cosmetic service that help reconstruct a single region or an entire mouth that needs improvement.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dental procedures. At Govani Dental, we know regular brushing doesn’t always remove all stains from your teeth.
During your visit, we check your teeth and gums to ensure you are a good candidate for teeth whitening. Next, we take impressions of your teeth so we can create custom-fit trays for the whitening product. Trays that fit your teeth securely will prevent sensitivity and burning. You’ll take the trays for at-home treatments.
We also offer an in-house whitening option for patients who are looking for an ultra-bright whitening with convenient in-office service. Teeth whitening isn’t permanent, so how long the treatment lasts depends upon your exposure to causes that stain teeth. Whitening could fade in as little as a month, but patients who avoid stain-causing risks may be able to wait a year or more between treatments.
What Causes Teeth Stains?
Over time, our teeth can lose their bright white color and become dull. Many things can change the shade of our teeth such as certain foods, dark beverages or tobacco use. In addition, patients who have experienced an injury or trauma to their teeth often experience discolor. Patients that have been on certain medications or chemotherapy drugs often have changes to the shade of their teeth impacting their smile.
Teeth whitening can help reverse the effect of these factors and restore your smile. Patients feel new confidence in being able to smile brightly again.
Is Teeth Whitening Safe?
Even if you plan to use an over-the-counter product, we recommend you ask us whether teeth whitening is safe for you. Many healthy patients can enjoy the benefits of a more confident bright white smile with teeth whitening. Please read our blog on the reason we recommend a licensed dentist perform all whitening treatments.
We do not recommend teeth whitening for patients with severe recession or exposed roots, active periodontal disease or those with active decay or faulty restorations. We do not recommend whitening for those that are pregnant. For young patients we recommend they wait till they are over 16 years old to whiten. Those with allergies to peroxide should speak with our team as they may not want to consider bleaching agents.
Govani Dental provides a safe whitening treatment. Dr. Govani will do a full exam of your teeth and gums before recommended teeth whitening.
