Most people who are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth do not realize the numerous ways cosmetic care can improve a smile. Cosmetic dentistry can correct crooked teeth, spaces between your teeth, chipped teeth, broken or missing teeth, stained or discolored teeth. Dr. Craig Anderson and Dr. Brady Atkins create a customized treatment plan for you, based on your age, goals and your comfort level financially.
Imagine a white, straighter, more brilliant smile! Placement of porcelain veneers is a conservative cosmetic treatment that makes a dramatic difference in the appearance of your teeth. If you have crooked teeth, chipped teeth, gaps in teeth or dull or stained teeth, veneers may be the perfect solution. Your dentist will skillfully create a straight, brilliant smile that enhances your appearance and your self-esteem.
Opalescence™ - At Home Tooth Whitening
You may be quite happy with the size and alignment of your teeth, but dentist-supervised tooth whitening gives you the dazzling smile you always wanted. Tooth whitening is safe, effective and long lasting. Our practice trusts the Opalescence™ tooth whitening system.
Your Opalescence™ home whitening kit involves a special tray that is customized to fit over your teeth and powerful, prescription-strength whitening gel, which is inserted into the tray before you wear it. Your dentist gives you detailed instructions about how long you should wear the tray each day, and the gel won't migrate to your gums. You should expect the entire home whitening process to take between two and four weeks, leaving you with a dazzling smile.
Whether you had braces in the past and your teeth have shifted or you have never had braces and are looking to redefine your smile, Invisalign could be the answer for you. Invisalign is a system of clear aligners that work to move teeth into the most ideal position. Invisalign is an aesthetic alternative to conventional braces - the aligners are clear and largely unnoticeable.
Porcelain Crowns and Bridges
You can erase years of wear and tear with porcelain crowns. Anderson & Atkins Dentistry uses a tooth-like crown made of porcelain to restore your tooth after the decay has been removed. Crowns are also used to restore chipped teeth, broken teeth, gaps in teeth and other damage. Porcelain bridges can be placed to replace a missing tooth. The bridge is anchored to existing teeth or crowns on either side of the missing teeth. Ask your dentist if a crown or bridge is right for you.
Tooth Colored Fillings
With new advancements in dentistry, you can now have tooth-colored fillings instead of silver fillings resulting in a long lasting, brighter, whiter smile. The new tooth-colored material is bonded to the tooth for a stronger restoration.
Composite bonding is a tooth-colored material applied and adhered to the surface of the tooth, often without reducing the structure of the tooth. The bonding material is sculpted by your dentist so that it resembles a natural tooth, correcting chips, broken, stained or discolored teeth and in some cases correcting gaps. While it is less of an investment than porcelain veneers, bonding doesn't last as long and can sometimes become stained from foods and beverages. We encourage you to make to make an appointment to talk with our team about your options.
