Your smile is the first trait people notice, and a great smile can open several windows of opportunity. Tooth discoloration, malformed, and missing teeth may make it difficult to achieve the perfect smile. However, Dr. Michael Hoang, DMD, offers several cosmetic dentistry treatments that can give you a stunning smile.
Available cosmetic treatments
Aesthetic dentistry, also known as cosmetic dentistry, consists of several treatments focusing on improving a patient’s self-image and smile aesthetics. A gorgeous smile is essential for aesthetic reasons and overall health. Studies show that oral health is interconnected with systemic health, meaning that poor oral health can lead to heart conditions. Dr. Hoang offers several cosmetic dentistry treatments, including:
- Porcelain veneers
Veneers are sheets of porcelain shells that cover the front of your teeth to correct dental imperfections such as misshapen teeth and improve their appearance. These shells can also enhance the appearance of misalignments and mild gaps. Veneers guarantee excellent results without invasive procedures, and many patients prefer them to orthodontic treatments and teeth whitening products.
Crowns are tooth-colored porcelain caps that replace missing teeth or cover damaged or decayed teeth. Porcelain crowns can hide discolored teeth or replace discolored fillings to improve your smile.
- Teeth whitening
Several forms of teeth whitening include in-office teeth whitening and at-home whitening kits. Dr. Hoang utilizes the Philips Zoom teeth whitening technique to brighten your smile up to 8 shades whiter. This whitening technique also corrects discoloration due to aging, tobacco use, and diet, helping you achieve a Hollywood smile within one appointment.
- Cosmetic fillings
Cosmetic fillings are tooth-colored and allow you to smile without feeling self-conscious. They are an excellent substitute for metal fillings.
When to consider cosmetic dentistry treatments
Anyone can benefit from cosmetic dentistry as long as your overall health is in top condition. You can talk to your doctor about cosmetic dentistry if you are unhappy with how your smile looks or if you need to improve your speech and chewing. Dr. Hoang may discuss your smile and oral goals and examine your mouth before developing a treatment plan. Some of the treatments, such as crowns, are not purely cosmetic. They prevent bone loss, restore clear speech and prevent your teeth from shifting.
What to expect during a cosmetic dentistry appointment
After determining your unique needs, Dr. Hoang may develop a treatment plan based on your needs. He explains in detail each procedure to help you make an informed choice. The team strives to correct your smile imperfections to give you a smile that can brighten a dull room. During your consultation, your doctor considers your facial shape, hair and skin coloring, teeth alignment, color and size, and gum size. Depending on your oral needs, your treatment plan may include one or several cosmetic dentistry treatments. Dr. Hoang uses cutting-edge technology and quality materials to give you your dream smile.
