Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is an area of dental practice focused on enhancing the appearance of your smile. It includes options that improve the look of natural teeth, choices that fully or partially cover natural tooth surfaces and options that replace missing teeth. 

Many cosmetic services also act to restore damaged teeth. Cosmetic treatment options include:

  • Dental implants
  • Teeth whitening
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Bonding
  • Inlays and onlays
  • Dental crowns
  • Veneers

Just as no two smiles are exactly alike, no two cosmetic treatment plans will be alike. The team at Dr. Whyte Smile works with you to understand your treatment needs and goals before creating a customized plan of action. 

How does teeth whitening work?

The Philips ZoomⓇ teeth-whitening system uses a professional-strength whitening solution activated by a special lamp to blast apart stains and brighten your smile. This in-house treatment takes just over an hour to complete, and there’s no need for advance preparation or recovery time.

The Zoom system can whiten your smile 8-10 shades with just one visit. The Dr. Whyte Smile team will advise you on how to maintain your results through at-home care.  

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers cover the visible surface of your teeth with an incredibly thin shell of porcelain. Veneers are usually only placed on the teeth seen when you speak or smile, and they create a gorgeous, natural-looking effect. 

Veneers can correct issues with the size, shape, color, or alignment of your teeth. This makes them a great value as compared with multiple treatments on individual teeth.

This treatment has long been a favorite among public figures and the Hollywood elite. Thanks to advancements in dental technology, everyone can now enjoy the benefits of custom dental veneers.

What is a smile makeover?

A smile makeover is a combination of multiple treatments that improve the beauty and strength of your smile. The process begins with a thorough consultation to decide which treatments are best suited for your needs. 

In many cases, smile restoration can be completed in just one day. CERECⓇ same-day crown technology eliminates the need for multiple visits and delivers beautiful and durable results.
