Cosmetic Dentistry – Rexburg, Id
Help Your Smile Shine and Boost Your Confidence
A healthy mouth is important, but a dazzling smile has its own value. Many people notice your smile before anything else when meeting you for the first time, and it can have a very real effect on how other people perceive you as well as your overall confidence. Dr. Snarr offers many cosmetic procedures that aim to enhance the beauty of the teeth; you can learn more about these various services by scheduling a consultation to discuss cosmetic dentistry in Rexbrug, ID here at Bright Smiles Family Dental of Rexburg.
Why Choose Bright Smiles Family Dental of Rexburg for Cosmetic Dentistry?
- EMAX and Zirconia Crowns
- Opalescence Whitening Options
- Treatments for Excessive Gum Tissue
Are you afraid that it will take multiple procedures to fix everything that’s wrong with your smile? Actually, in many cases all it takes is just two simple visits to place veneers. A thin sheath of tooth-colored material is used to cover up stains, cracks, chips, and other flaws; it can even hide rotated teeth and close small gaps. In short, when there are multiple improvements you want to make, veneers provide an efficient path to achieving your smile goals.
Metal-Free Dental Restorations
We can provide you with crowns made of EMAX or zirconia. These materials closely resemble the color of enamel and even reflect light in a similar way. When they are shaded to match your other teeth, most people can’t tell the difference between a crown made of these materials and the natural parts of your smile. Crowns are usually placed for restorative purposes, but they can also be used for cosmetic reasons if we decide that they’re the best option available.
Sometimes, most of your teeth look fine, but there’s just one minor chip or discolored spot that bothers you whenever you see yourself in the mirror. We can use direct bonding to reshape your damaged tooth or hide a small imperfection in just one visit. The bonding material is blended to match the color of your teeth, and then we can mold it onto the enamel before hardening it in place with a curing light.
Our professional-grade Opalescence whitening kits are more effective than over the counter options. That’s because Opalescence whitening gel contains carbamide peroxide, which can penetrate the tooth to break up underlying stains. After about two weeks of using the kit, you’ll notice that your smile has brightened considerably. Whiter teeth can lead to improved confidence and enhance the way others perceive you.
You may have additional gum tissue covering your teeth, and as a result your smile looks a bit too “gummy.” We can take away the gum tissue that is unneeded so that the teeth have a chance to shine and the soft tissues framing them don’t draw more attention than necessary. The process of reshaping the gumline by removing excess tissue is called gum recontouring, and it can be done in just one comfortable visit.
Perhaps you have misshapen teeth you want to hide, but you also want to improve your gummy smile. Or maybe you’re thinking of having teeth whitening done but also have a minor crack that needs to be hidden. You can tell us about the changes you want to make during your initial consultation. We can put together a comprehensive treatment plan called a smile makeover designed to address all the different imperfections that are bothering you.
What are Dental Veneers?
A dental veneer covers the front surface of a tooth to improve its color, size, and shade using a minimally invasive procedure. When applied to the teeth most visible when smiling, veneers can fix multiple aesthetic issues, including:
- Stains and discoloration
- Chips or cracks
- Gaps between teeth
- Shorter than average teeth
Veneers are made of porcelain, allowing them to be made thinner than ever. They will fit your teeth like a glove without having to remove a large amount of enamel, like with crowns. You’ll maintain more of your natural structure for a less invasive treatment.
The Process of Getting Veneers
Your first step to a beautiful smile is scheduling a consultation with your cosmetic dentist in Rexburg, Dr. Snarr. He will examine your mouth and learn more about your goals to ensure veneers are right for you. He will explain how many veneers you’ll need and what to expect during the road ahead.
After treating any dental issues, like tooth decay, you’ll begin the first step in your plan. Your teeth are cleaned before their surfaces are etched lightly. This is necessary to ensure the veneers sit flush to prevent any uncomfortable ledges when running your tongue over your teeth. Once your mouth has been prepped, Dr. Snarr will take an impression of your teeth to create your veneers. It can take a couple of weeks for the dental lab to craft your veneers to match your specifications, so you’ll need temporary ones while you wait.
Your temporary veneers will be removed once your permanent restorations have been sent back to our office. Dr. Snarr will bond your veneers to your teeth and polish your smile before you leave. You’ll walk out of our office looking and feeling your best.
Your results can last for about 10 years; however, it’s not uncommon for veneers to last for decades with the right maintenance, like a solid oral hygiene routine. Don’t forget to schedule a cleaning and checkup every 6 months to protect your investment.
The Benefits of Veneers
Veneers continue to rank among the top cosmetic procedures annually, and for good reasons, including:
- Natural-looking results
- Minimally invasive procedure
- Corrects several issues simultaneously
- Quick results and recovery
- Durable for a long-lasting solution
- Cost-effective option
You don’t have to hide your teeth. Veneers are an excellent method to revamp your smile. Dr. Snarr will help you turn back the clock to reveal a youthful, confident, and attractive smile. Contact our office today to schedule your consultation for veneers.
