When you have a smile that you’re proud to show off, you start to experience noticeable improvements in both your self-confidence and your perception of the world overall. Having good oral health doesn’t automatically mean that your smile appears the way you want it to. If you’re in need of a cosmetic boost, whether it’s through quick whitening treatments or detailed porcelain veneers, Dr. Her can help you obtain your vision of a new smile!
If you have multiple imperfections in your smile that you’d like to address with one treatment, porcelain veneers are likely the treatment for you. We make our veneers from natural-looking ceramics designed to mimic tooth enamel exactly, ensuring that your smile looks as lifelike as possible. Each veneer is custom-made to fit over your tooth exactly, ensuring that all chips, cracks, discolorations, are no longer visible. With the right at-home care, they should last at least 10 years or longer.
In order to make your smile look natural throughout, Dr. Her needs to use materials that actually match the color of your current enamel. Ironically, cosmetic dentistry is better when it’s not noticeable, and using the right ceramics ensures this following your treatment. At Lifetime Dental, we use Bruxzir, Emax and Celtra Duo ceramics to restore teeth, whether it’s through dental crowns or porcelain veneers. Every restoration we design is custom-shaded, meaning those around you won’t be able to tell the difference between your natural teeth and restorations.
While some cosmetic treatments require permanent changes to your natural teeth, you shouldn’t necessarily have to remove healthy enamel if you only have a few imperfections to resolve. With the same material we use to restore teeth damaged by cavities (composite resin), we can hide multiple cracks, discolorations, and even gaps through cosmetic bonding. Once we’ve shaped and molded the resin to your tooth, we can harden it instantly using a special curing light, ensuring long-term durability and natural-looking esthetics.
One of the most popular forms of cosmetic dentistry available today is teeth whitening, which is capable of making smiles several shades whiter. With professional solutions from Dr. Her, you can whiten your teeth either in-house or at home on your own time. While in-house whitening takes only an hour and take-home solutions are performed over the span of two weeks, both utilize the same professional-grade bleaching solutions designed to remove even the toughest stains from teeth.
