Cosmetic dentistry helps patients improve the appearance of their smile through a variety of procedures to whiten, align, and create more uniformity with the teeth and gums. Patients with healthy teeth and gums are good candidates for cosmetic dentistry. If you have a healthy smile, but desire a more symmetrical or whiter smile, Dr. Michael can help! At our Eagan, MN practice, we offer several services approved by the American Dental Association:
Dental Bonding: Minor imperfections like chips and cracks can be concealed with dental bonding, a process where composite material is applied to natural teeth. Dental bonding conceals discoloration that professional teeth whitening cannot fix. With proper hygiene, the composite resin material used by Dr. Michael can last up to ten years.
Teeth Whitening: Professional teeth whitening can lighten your smile up to eight shades! The powerful whitening agents used in both our at-home and in-office kits deliver more powerful results than those from over-the-counter solutions. All our treatments are safe for your teeth and can deliver results in as little as one office visit.
Dental Crowns: Restoring a damaged or injured tooth back to its original appearance is usually accomplished through a porcelain dental crown. You can think of a crown as a type of cap that fits over the natural tooth. This restoration adds reinforcement and enhances the appearance of your smile. Dental crowns are customized to fit your dental anatomy.
Bridges: if you are missing consecutive teeth and desire a fuller, natural-looking smile, dental bridges may be your best treatment option. Including one or more artificial teeth that are bonded to two dental crowns, a bridge can either be supported by your natural teeth or dental implants. Dr. Michael can customize a bridge with composite or ceramic materials that match your natural tooth color.
Porcelain Veneers: For a permanent smile enhancement, porcelain veneers offer beautiful, dramatic results. Made from ultra-thin ceramic porcelain, veneers cover an array of flaws including inner tooth discoloration, unevenly spaced teeth, and chips or fracture lines. With proper care and cleanings, veneers will last 15-20 years.
