Smiling is a gift that gives both ways. To friends and strangers, a warm smile elicits feelings of being welcomed and loved. Consequently, when you smile, you also release endorphins and serotonin, which make you feel happier. This makes smiling one of the most rewarding and warm gestures you can offer despite its simplicity. At Wheelock and Associates Dentistry, we offer cosmetic dentistry to make you proud of your smile so you can keep sharing it with the world.
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Simply put, cosmetic dentistry is the process of beautifying your smile. The term “cosmetic dentistry” is an umbrella that encompasses several treatments, all intending to enhance the appearance of your teeth. Through this practice, we can boost your confidence and improve your oral health all together.
Am I a Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?
We may suggest cosmetic dentistry for any of our patients who would like to improve the beauty of their smiles. Cosmetic dentistry might be the solution you need if your smile is flawed by imperfections such as:
- Cracked, chipped, fractured, or broken teeth
- Gaps and spaces between teeth
- Discolored, yellowed, or stained teeth
- Slightly misaligned or uneven teeth
- One or more missing teeth
- Teeth that appear too long, too short, or too pointed
- Very worn teeth
- Misshapen teeth
Our Cosmetic Dentistry Services
The Wheelock and Associates team is proud to offer many procedures to take your smile to the next level. Here are some of our most popular treatments:
Dental crowns are prosthetic ‘caps’ that are shaped and colored to match your natural teeth. They can be placed over a damaged or otherwise compromised tooth to protect the structure and restore the appearance. Crowns are also used as the visible component of a dental implant.
Dental implants are metallic posts that support an abutment and dental crown. This procedure is used to restore a complete smile when there is a single missing tooth.
Implant-supported prostheses are artificial teeth (either partial or complete) anchored in place by dental implants. This is an excellent option for people who have lost several teeth and are looking for a permanent solution.
