A beautiful smile is a powerful attribute: it gives you the confidence you need to pursue your dreams. It can help you obtain a new job or a promotion, enter the dating scene, participate in social activities and simply live a more satisfying life.
If your smile isn’t as aesthetically pleasing as you would like, cosmetic dentistry with Dr. Mike Archuleta can help. At Kent Station Family Dentistry, we offer a complete range of cosmetic services designed to address the things you don’t like about your smile and enhance the elements that you do.
Porcelain veneers are tiny pieces of ceramic that Dr. Mike uses to cover up cosmetic imperfections or fix the size, shape or color of your tooth. Extremely versatile, they may be recommended if your teeth have small chips, cracks, stains, discoloration or uneven edges. Dr. Mike can place a single veneer to improve the appearance of an abnormal tooth or a set of veneers to transform all of the front teeth that show when you smile. Porcelain is a very strong material that can last for years with the proper care.
Dental crowns are used to restore structure and strength to damaged, weak or compromised teeth. Crowns are frequently placed on teeth that are badly cracked, broken or decayed, or teeth that have large cavities that threaten the tooth. They encapsulate the entire 360-degree exterior of your tooth, recreating the look of a natural, healthy tooth. Today’s crowns are created from top-quality, lifelike materials and should closely mimic your surrounding teeth in color, shape, size and texture.
Teeth whitening is designed to lift stains and discoloration and brighten your teeth for a more beautiful smile. In-office, chairside bleaching involves applying a professional strength bleaching agent to the teeth and activating it with a special light. The entire process takes an hour or less. Dr. Mike also offers the option of take-home whitening trays, which should be worn nightly for several weeks. He will help you select the approach that best fits your budget, lifestyle and goals.
Dental bonding is a quick and cost-effective way to repair minor dental damage and improve the appearance of your teeth. It involves applying a tooth-colored resin material to your tooth and sculpting it as needed to cover chips, cracks, stains or discoloration. Dental bonding can also be used to mask tiny gaps between your teeth.
A smile makeover is the process of improving multiple aspects of your smile through a combination of treatments and procedures. Your smile makeover will be tailored to your particular concerns about your teeth and smile as well as your goals of treatment. Most smile makeovers include two or more of the following treatments: teeth whitening, dental bonding, Invisalign or the placement of veneers or crowns.
