Cosmetic Dentistry in Tyson’s Corner
Almost everyone has part of their smile that they would like to change, whether the issue is crooked teeth, an obtrusive gum line, or yellowing of the teeth. Cosmetic dentistry can address each of these problems and more with customized treatments that improve the overall aesthetics of a person’s smile. If you are unhappy with any element of your smile, Dr. Kallas Dental Center can provide dedicated cosmetic care through one of three offices serving Merrifield and the surrounding communities. Read on to learn exactly what cosmetic dental care can do for your smile.
Reasons to Consult a Cosmetic Dentist
While the primary goal of cosmetic dentistry is to improve the appearance of a patient’s smile, many cosmetic dental procedures will improve the health of the teeth and gums as well. Additionally, cosmetic dental care can boost your confidence and give you a younger appearance that you will want to show off.
Types of Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
When you visit our office for a cosmetic dentistry consultation, you might discuss a wide range of treatments, depending on the problem areas you wish to address. Here is a look at just a handful of the most popular cosmetic procedures we perform in our offices:
- Tooth Whitening – Nearly anyone can benefit from tooth whitening, because daily habits can cause teeth to become stained or dull in color. Our whitening techniques include Zoom! In-office whitening, take-home whitening kits, and Opalesence whitening toothpaste, so you have a wide array of options to fit into your lifestyle.
- Crowns – Teeth that have been damaged by cracks, chips, and cavities may be treated with crowns, which are tooth-shaped caps that cover the teeth. Crowns are custom fitted to match the shape, size, and color of your teeth for natural looking results.
- Veneers – Veneers are ultra-thin porcelain caps that are placed on teeth that have been prepared with the excavation of a thin layer of tooth enamel. Once bonded to the surfaces of the teeth, veneers can correct issues such as crowding and gaps between the teeth.
- Gum Recontouring – Issues such as a toothy smile or lengthy gum line can be easily corrected with laser-assisted gum recontouring, which is a much less invasive alternative to grafting procedures.
