Thanks to cosmetic dentistry procedures, imperfections, and flaws in your smile can be easily corrected, hidden, or repaired. Your cosmetic dentist in Scottsdale, AZ, Dr. Renuka Kumar, can help you decide which of these cosmetic dentistry options is ideal for your situation.
Veneers and Lumineers
Veneers and Lumineers are thin shells designed to cover flaws in the fronts of your teeth. Once the restorations are attached to your teeth, chips, gaps, uneven surfaces, and discolorations are hidden from view. Veneers and Lumineers can also change the shape or length of teeth and whiten your entire smile. Veneers are made of porcelain, while Lumineers are made of a ceramic material.
Nearly everyone's smile gradually becomes duller over the years. If you don't like what you see when you look in the mirror, teeth whitening offers a simple, inexpensive solution. Whitening bleaches away stains in your tooth enamel, leaving your teeth white and bright. Both in-office whitening and take-home whitening kits are available at the Scottsdale dental office.
Dental implants allow you to replace your missing teeth from top to bottom. Implants bond to your jawbone and serve as replacement roots for your new tooth. Just like natural roots, dental implants are securely attached to your jawbone.
The implants are made of titanium, a biocompatible metal that bonds to the bone. Dental implants are paired with dental crowns, bridges, or dentures to restore teeth. Implants feel like natural teeth, offer excellent biting power, and will probably last your entire life with proper care.
Invisalign offers a new way to straighten teeth. Aligner trays worn over your teeth gradually realign your teeth, instead of metal brackets and wires. The removable trays are clear, which makes them practically invisible.
You'll receive a series of trays and will wear each tray for about two weeks. Trays are designed using a 3D image compiled from digital impressions, photographs, and X-rays taken in the dental office. Invisalign is ideal for both teenagers and adults.
