Cosmetic dentistry helps patients improve their smile's appearance through various 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!
Cosmetic Dentistry in Eagan
At our Eagan, MN practice, we offer several services approved by the American Dental Association:
We can conceal minor imperfections, like tooth chips and cracks, with dental bonding, a process where we apply a tooth-colored composite material 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.
If you are interested in improving your smile through cosmetic dentistry, schedule a consultation at Gentle Dental Eagan or call us at (651)-452-5511.
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. In addition, all our treatments are safe for your teeth and can deliver results in as little as one office visit. With teeth whitening, patients can brighten their overall look quickly and affordably, whether they want to stand out in photographs or improve their appearance for an important meeting or event.
Restoring a damaged or injured tooth 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, protecting the tooth from damage, and enhances the appearance of your smile. Dental crowns are customized to fit your specific dental anatomy, so they blend seamlessly into the rest of your smile and fit comfortably.
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 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, creating your ideal smile.
For a permanent smile enhancement, porcelain veneers offer beautiful, dramatic results. Made from ultra-thin ceramic porcelain, veneers cover many flaws, including internal tooth discoloration, unevenly spaced teeth, and chips or fracture lines. With proper care and cleanings, veneers will last 15-20 years. This long-lasting cosmetic fix allows patients to drastically change the appearance of their teeth with minimal dental work.
