Why Choose Advanced Dental Arts NW for Cosmetic Dentistry?
- High-Quality, Metal-Free Materials
- Invisalign for Straighter, Healthier Teeth
- Address Multiple Flaws with Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers can cover chips, cracks, and hide both intrinsic and extrinsic stains. This is a simple and popular cosmetic treatment that always results in a beautiful smile. Each veneer is a thin shell of porcelain material that we customize to fit over a tooth. With it, we can help a tooth appear shorter, longer, wider, or narrower, all while giving it a perfectly shaped, beautifully white look. Veneers are different from crowns which wrap around an entire tooth-- veneers cover only the face of the tooth.
Metal-Free Bonded Porcelain Restorations
A porcelain dental crown or bridge is a fixed restoration that is used to repair or replace a damaged or missing tooth. These provide structure, keep your neighboring teeth from shifting, and improve your chewing function while also restoring your appearance. Dr. Teasdale only uses metal-free materials such as eMax or Zirconium that look and feel just like natural enamel and have the strength to stand against the strongest of bites.
Cosmetic bonding is used when a tooth has been damaged or become stained. This process involves the application of a tooth-colored composite material to a tooth (the same that is used to fill cavities). Once placed, we shape it, dry it, and polish it, helping it blend into your smile. This type of repair is generally only recommended for minor flaws; it will not provide the same longevity and durability as a dental crown or porcelain veneers.
Teeth whitening is one of the easiest changes you can make that will dramatically enhance the overall appearance of your smile. We can whiten away years of wear from your teeth, often making a patient look fresher and sometimes even younger. Teeth whitening is non-invasive and done quickly under our care. While you might find many whitening products at the store, none can provide you with the same level of whitening power like the treatments we offer.
Invisalign® Clear Aligners
Made of clear, strong medical-grade plastic, Invisalign aligners are designed to be worn over your teeth, but they are nearly invisible. With them, we can make simple changes to the appearance of your smile, closing gaps and removing any crookedness or crowding.
Part of an aesthetically pleasing smile is having a balance between your gums and teeth. If you have a “gummy” smile, your appearance can seem off-kilter. At Advanced Dental Arts NW, we have the technology and training to handle this issue with gum recontouring. Using our soft tissue laser, we can remove excess tissue, revealing more of your enamel to give you a perfectly proportioned look. The best part? This laser causes little to no bleeding or discomfort, so recovery is nice and fast!
As you age, fine lines and wrinkles can develop on your face, especially on your forehead and around your mouth and eyes. The good news is that Dr. Teasdale offers a way to turn back the clock: Botox injections. This substance relaxes the muscles that are responsible for facial wrinkles. As an expert in the facial structures, Dr. Teasdale knows exactly where to place Botox to deliver the optimal results. Through Botox, you can enjoy a more youthful appearance for several months.
Full Mouth Reconstructions
If your smile has suffered significant decay, damage, or even tooth loss, you may think that a beautiful set of teeth and having confidence in your appearance are out of your reach. That’s simply not true! Dr. Teasdale and our experienced team can create a custom treatment plan that will address every flaw and transform your smile. By the end of your full-mouth reconstruction, you’ll have the smile you’ve always dreamed of.
