Cosmetic Dentistry Options at Admira

During your consultation, our team members will get to know your specific cosmetic goals and will work with you to recommend the treatments that will see you realizing them, so you can enjoy a smile that fully complements your sense of facial harmony.

The cosmetic dentistry options we offer include:

When to Consider Cosmetic Dentistry

Although you may be meticulous about your dental care routine, your teeth still might not look their very best. Drinking coffee, tea, or wine will eventually take a toll on your teeth, causing them to look dull and stained. Aging, and the use of some medications, can also result in a discolored smile. One easy and safe way to revive your smile from these factors is through whitening.

Plenty of adults are looking towards dentistry to heighten the appearance and function of their teeth. Cracked, chipped, or unevenly spaced teeth are easily resolved by procedures like bonding or veneers. Severely damaged teeth can be repaired with crowns, while bridges and implants are natural-looking options used to revitalize your smile. These methods will not only give you a more beautiful smile but will also rejuvenate your mouth’s functionality.

Understanding Cosmetic Dentistry

Everything beautiful and healthy in nature has its proper form, color, shape, and proportion. This same concept applies to every unique smile. By definition, aesthetic (cosmetic) dentistry addresses the appearance of your smile and is a key component to total oral wellness. As a team, we cater to our guests with an approach that combines science and artistry to ensure a smile that is healthy, functional, and beautiful.

For many of our guests, the aesthetic transformation that takes place is almost overwhelming. Enhancing your smile is a powerful experience and we never grow tired of sharing the wonderful feeling. Knowing you have a beautiful smile and perfect teeth affects every aspect of your life: You’ll see yourself differently, the world sees you differently, and you see the world differently from the inside out.

Whitening Your Teeth

Addressing Discoloration

One of the most common complaints our guests have about their teeth is that they are discolored or faded. Fortunately, there are a variety of teeth whitening treatments available, so you can enjoy a sparkling smile.

At-Home Whitening

The simplest tooth whitening treatment is an at-home procedure with either 16% or 22% carbamide peroxide. This takes several weeks to accomplish and involves wearing thin trays in your mouth for only 1 hour per day.

Porcelain Veneers

Perhaps the most effective method for whitening teeth is through the placement of porcelain veneers, which produces long-term, stain-resistant results. With veneers, we can achieve advanced results and the most uniform overall color.

Your Consultation

Both methods work well, but no two guests are exactly the same. Your personal consultation at Admira Dentistry can help us work with you to determine which teeth whitening option is most appropriate for you and your goals.

Dental Veneers and Laminates

In cosmetic dentistry, the most popular way to enhance a smile and restore proper function is with porcelain veneers or laminates. These thin but durable restorations are more conservative to the natural tooth than traditional crowns, and they never stain. Additionally, when placed by a competent physiologic aesthetic dentist like those at Admira Dentistry, porcelain veneers not only look and feel natural, they possess a greater level of durability and quality due to placing the veneers in the most ideal position with our measurable Biopak jaw tracking equipment.

Veneers or laminates are ideal for those who have chipped, stained, discolored, unevenly spaced, or slightly crooked teeth and desire a brighter, cleaner, more attractive smile. Fortunately, most veneers can be applied in one or two simple appointments. At Admira Dentistry, we are very careful to listen to your needs and desires and to make appropriate recommendations based on your own knowledge and experience.

Composite Resin Tooth-Colored Fillings

Introduced in the 1960s, composite resin dental fillings were created as an alternative to traditional amalgam (silver metal & mercury) fillings. A mixture of silicon dioxide and plastic, composite resin fillings are strong, durable, and cosmetically superior to silver amalgam fillings. Admira places composite fillings only, having made the switch from silver/mercury amalgam fillings in 1994.

In addition to filling decayed areas, composites are also used for cosmetic improvements of the smile by changing the color of the teeth and reshaping disfigured teeth. Following preparation, we place the composite in layers, using a specialized light to harden each layer. When the process is finished, he will shape the composite to fit the tooth and then polish the composite to prevent staining and early wear.

Composite Resins vs. Traditional Silver Fillings

  • Admira Dentistry is able to blend composite shades and shapes to match the color and contour of your original tooth surface.
  • The composite filling is actually bonded to your tooth, serving to support the remaining tooth structure, preventing breakage, and providing insulation against temperature changes.
  • Average-sized and small-sized composites have demonstrated a similar duration to silver fillings, lasting between seven and ten years.
  • The preparation of composite fillings requires less removal of tooth structure to achieve adequate strength. This is because composite resins bond to enamel via a micromechanical bond. As conservation of tooth structure is a key ingredient in tooth preservation, we prefer placing composite over amalgam fillings.
  • As composite materials and placement techniques continue to improve, more dental guests are seeing the value of composite fillings. Consequently, more dentists are offering them and many dental insurance plans provide coverage for their use.

Dental Crowns and Caps

As we age, there are many factors that can lead to defects on the surface of a tooth. Cracked, broken, decayed, or worn teeth can be restored to a natural-looking, healthy state with dental crowns. A dental crown is a type of restoration that covers the entire visible surface of a tooth to protect it from further damage and preserve correct jaw alignment.

Ideal Candidates for Dental Crowns

During your consultation, we’ll take stock of your dental needs, and work with you to determine the best course of action. A dental crown may be deemed appropriate for one or perhaps all of the following reasons:

  • Restore a tooth to its original shape.
  • Strengthen a tooth.
  • Improve the cosmetic appearance of a tooth.

Creating Your Crowns

Designed to fit snugly and function as normal teeth, crowns may be made with precious metal, porcelain pressed to metal, and all-porcelain, each very effective.

For strength and aesthetic purposes, we often recommend all-ceramic crowns for their precise color matching systems and durability.

In most cases, we can design and fit crowns in one short appointment. Once they’re on, caring for them is no different than proper hygiene for your other teeth. Conscientious, twice-daily brushing and daily flossing will help protect the base from bacterial growth, and regular visits to our office for professional cleanings will help ensure long-term proper function and durability.
