Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is a field of dental care focused on improving and maintaining the appearance of your smile. It encompasses a wide range of procedures, from simple teeth whitening treatments to restorative procedures like veneers, all of which aim to make your smile beautiful.
People love cosmetic dentistry because it enables them to achieve the look that they’ve always wanted. Whether you think your teeth are too discolored, crooked, or worn-down, Dr. Kim can give you the smile of your dreams with high-quality cosmetic dentistry.
What cosmetic services do you offer?
Dr. Kim offers a wide array of cosmetic procedures at Oronoco Dental, including:
Professional teeth whitening is one of the quickest and easiest ways to improve your smile. Oronoco Dental administers both in-office and at-home teeth whitening, so you can choose between brightening your smile in a single session or doing it over a few weeks from the comfort of your home.
With in-office whitening, Dr. Kim applies a protective barrier around your gums, then carefully paints a professional-strength whitening gel on your teeth. You leave the office within an hour with a stunning white smile.
With at-home whitening, Dr. Kim uses an impression of your mouth to fabricate custom-fitted whitening trays. You fill the trays with a whitening solution and wear them every day for a certain amount of time. Within just a few weeks, you’ll have a noticeably whiter smile.
Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells that are bonded to the front side of your front teeth. They cover cosmetic defects like cracks, chips, and stains, and can even be used to fix the appearance of crooked teeth, crowded teeth, or teeth that are spaced too widely apart.
Dr. Kim fabricates your veneers from an impression of your smile and can match their color to the shade of your natural teeth, so your veneers look natural in your mouth.
Invisalign® is a modern orthodontic treatment that straightens your smile with a series of clear, plastic aligners. A straight smile and properly aligned jaw offer several health benefits, but they also make for a more cosmetically appealing smile.
What happens when I get cosmetic dentistry?
When you come to Oronoco Dental for cosmetic dentistry, your journey begins with a consultation. You discuss what you like and dislike about your smile, and Dr. Kim gives you in-depth explanations about what treatments can help you achieve your dream smile.
Depending on your needs, Dr. Kim might recommend just one procedure, or she might suggest combining multiple procedures for a full smile makeover.
