Many imperfections can appear in teeth over the years, making it difficult to address all of them at once. When you want to hide all of them with ease, porcelain veneers are the perfect solution. These ultra-thin sheaths of dental ceramic are custom-made to fit over the visible portions of teeth and look incredibly natural. Not only is the material used incredibly lifelike, but it actually resists stains more effectively than natural enamel due to its smooth surface.
Without the most natural-looking materials possible, we wouldn’t be able to properly meet your smile goals. Our dental office makes use of the latest dental materials designed to stand the test of time while still looking incredibly beautiful and lifelike. Regardless of the type of cosmetic treatment you need completed, we’ll make sure that your improvements look natural, whether it’s creating a shade that blends in with your smile or restoration that lasts for several years.
Does your smile have minor discolorations from aging or chips and cracks as a result of a bad fall? When you don’t want to completely transform your smile but would still like to fix minor imperfections, cosmetic bonding makes the process easy and straightforward. Using composite resin, we hide and fil minor imperfections in your smile in just one visit. With proper care, cosmetic bonding can last several years without worry.
One of the most popular forms of cosmetic dentistry today is teeth whitening, particularly take-home varieties available at our dental office. We utilize Opalescence take-home kits so you can easily whiten teeth on your own time. There’s no need for hot LED lamps or activation devices to make the gel whiten teeth. Simply fill your trays with the prepackaged whitening gel and wear them for about 30 minutes a day over the next two weeks. Your smile will be several shades brighter and ready to show off to friends and family!
In many cases, people are perfectly fine with how their teeth look and are more concerned with their gums. If you feel like your teeth are covered by too much gum tissue, we can remove small portions of it in a safe and precise manner. Gum recontouring, also known as crown lengthening, is performed via our soft tissue laser. Not only does this allow for more conservative treatment, but shorter healing times as well.
At first, it may be confusing to hear that a dentist offers Botox. However, because of our dentists’ expertise with oral and facial structures, they are fully capable of administering Botox treatment in a safe and effective way to reduce wrinkles and signs of aging. This treatment temporarily paralyzes specific areas of your face, preventing lines from forming around the eyes, mouth, and eyebrows. It’s proven to last for several months before requiring retreatment and is an ideal addition to your overall smile makeover.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
There are a variety of treatments out there than can help to enhance your appearance. However, it pays to be well-informed when it comes to treatments of any type, so we’re here to help! Here are the answers to some of the most common questions we receive about cosmetic dentistry in Whitinsville. If you don’t see the information that you’ve been looking for below, don’t worry. Give us a call and we’d be happy to get you started with an initial consultation.
Is Cosmetic Dentistry Expensive?
Many people associate cosmetic dentistry with expensive treatments, but that doesn’t necessarily have to be the case. Its pricy reputation may stem from the fact that dental insurance rarely covers cosmetic c treatments, so you typically need to pay out of pocket. Improving your smile might seem costly at first, but you have to consider the investment you’re making in your self-esteem, confidence, and quality of life.
Is Cosmetic Dentistry Safe?
As long as you’re under the care of a trained professional, then yes, most cosmetic dentistry treatments are perfectly safe for most patients. However, not every treatment is right for every patient. That’s why your dentist examines your mouth beforehand and gives you an honest assessment of which procedures may or may not be right for you. Some cosmetic services may pose a risk if an underlying oral health issue isn’t treated first. For instance, placing a veneer over a decayed tooth may make the decay more difficult to treat later on. However, your dentist will plan to address issues like these ahead of time.
How Do I Know If I Need Cosmetic Dentistry?
If you aren’t entirely confident in the smile you see in the mirror, you could most likely benefit from cosmetic dentistry. Stained or discolored teeth often can’t be fixed with over-the-counter whitening products, but professional whitening can get the job done. Chipped or cracked teeth could expose the center of the teeth to dangerous bacteria, so opting for a crown or veneer can help with this. If you’d like to look younger, cosmetic dentistry can make a difference. The best way to find out if you could benefit from cosmetic dentistry is by scheduling a consultation with us.
Does Cosmetic Dentistry Hurt?
Patients are often hesitant to commit to treatment because they are worried that the procedure to be painful. That’s why we do everything we can to make your treatment experience as comfortable as possible. Most cosmetic treatments are non-invasive. For instance, whitening and bonding shouldn’t even require a local anesthetic. For treatments like veneers, where your tooth needs to be reshaped, your mouth will be numbed ahead of time. There may be some residual soreness for a few days afterward, but this should be mild and temporary.
