Cosmetic Dental Services
Cosmetic dental services provide a wide range of benefits designed to address your specific needs. At Advanced Dental Arts NW, we offer both simple and more complicated treatments that can improve both the look and function of your smile. Cosmetic dentistry includes whitening stains, restoring damage, and repairing natural imperfections. We invite you to inquire about our cosmetic services, we may surprise you with how easy it is to make a significant difference.
A dental implant is a restoration that we are excited to provide. Dental implants allow us to do more than place a false tooth, it allows us to restore the missing tooth root. This is the first restoration that includes rebuilding the foundation of a tooth. Using a titanium post, we surgically insert the post into your jawbone, creating a direct connection between the tooth and bone. We can do this without disturbing any neighboring teeth and fully restore a missing tooth. Unlike a bridge, partial or full denture, a tooth implant is a permanent solution.
Tooth veneers can cover chips, cracks, and hide both intrinsic and extrinsic stains. This is a simple, and popular cosmetic dental technique, giving the result of a beautiful smile. Dental veneers are a thin shell of porcelain material that we customize to fit your tooth or the tooth you want. With it, we can help a tooth appear shorter, longer, wider, or more narrow, all while giving the tooth a perfectly shaped, beautifully white look. Veneers are different then crowns, which wrap around the entire tooth, veneers cover only the face of the tooth.
A porcelain dental bridge is a fixed, meaning cemented into place, appliance that is used to replace a missing tooth. This will provide structure, keep your neighboring teeth from shifting, and improve your chewing function while improving your look.
Dental bonding is a simple procedure in which we can easily make cosmetic changes to your most visible teeth. Dental bonding is used when a tooth has been damaged or become stained. This process is the application of a tooth-colored composite material, the same material that is used to fill cavities, to a tooth. Once placed, we then shape it, dry it, and polish it, helping it blend in your mouth.These repairs are generally for only minor repairs; it will not provide the same longevity and durability that can be found with a dental crown or veneers.
Teeth whitening is one of the easiest changes you can make, that offers a significant change in the look of your smile. We can whiten away the 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. There are many store-bought products, with varying levels of success, but none can provide you the same whitening power that is prescribed for a dentist’s care.
Aligners can discreetly straighten your teeth. Made of clear, strong medical grade plastic, aligners are designed to be worn over your teeth, but nearly invisible. With them, we can make simple changes to the appearance of your teeth, closing gaps, and straightening your most visible teeth.
6 Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles are a modernized form of traditional braces. It utilizes clear brackets and a white wire; this helps them be virtually invisible. The teeth are moved gently, using low force. The entire process is, on average, complete in six months. Dr. Russell Teasdale has been fully trained and certified to provide you with the highest level of care, and the smile you deserve.
