Cosmetic dentistry uses restorations, whitening treatments, and other similar procedures to improve the appearance of your teeth, gums, and smile.
Most cosmetic dental treatments are elective, but some can also enhance your oral health. For example, replacing a missing permanent tooth with a dental implant can prevent gum recession and bone loss.
At Ford Dental Group, Dr. Abdel-Hak and the team offer several types of cosmetic dentistry, including:
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that Dr. Abdel-Hak bonds to the outside of your permanent front teeth. Once placed, the veneers cover up minor imperfections, like stains, gaps, or unusually shaped teeth.
Lumineers are similar to veneers. The difference is that they’re thinner and don’t require any pre-preparation. That means Dr. Abdel-Hak doesn’t have to remove any enamel from your permanent teeth before bonding the Lumineers in place.
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure designed to eliminate stains caused by poor oral hygiene, tobacco use, food or drink coloring, or trauma. Dr. Abdel-Hak and the team at Ford Dental Group offer both in-office teeth whitening and take-home teeth whitening kits.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment system that improves the alignment of your teeth and jaw. Instead of using metal brackets and archwires, like traditional braces, Invisalign straightens your teeth with a series of removable plastic mouthpieces.
Invisalign treatment is comfortable, discreet, and safe for teens and adults.
A Hollywood Smile, or smile makeover, combines several different cosmetic procedures to improve the appearance of your smile. After an oral exam, a discussion of your goals, and a series of oral X-rays, Dr. Abdel-Hak and the team can develop a treatment plan that aligns with your needs.
If you’re missing one, a few, or all of your permanent teeth, Dr. Abdel-Hak might recommend dental implants. Implants are titanium posts he inserts into empty tooth sockets. After placement, they integrate with your jawbone, providing a base to hold a restoration, such as a crown, bridge, or implant-retained denture.
Anyone who wants a whiter, brighter, and more aesthetically pleasing smile can benefit from cosmetic dentistry.
After a conversation about what you like and dislike about your teeth, gums, or smile, Dr. Abdel-Hak and the team can make treatment recommendations that meet your goals and budget.
