At Value Dental Centers Tempe, your oral health is of utmost importance to us. We do understand, however, that the appearance of your smile can affect how you feel about yourself. To address such concerns, we offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry treatments at our Tempe, AZ, office. With the right treatment or combination of treatments, we can completely transform your smile so you can feel confident in all your personal and professional interactions.
What Cosmetic Dentistry Can and Cannot Do
Our wide range of treatments can treat a variety of surface flaws and blemishes. We can whiten yellowed teeth, reshape chipped or cracked teeth, fill in gaps, reshape gums, and even correct minor misalignment.
Unfortunately, cosmetic treatments cannot be used to correct more serious problems. However, we offer tooth-colored fillings and crowns and natural looking bridges and dentures to repair or replace damaged teeth. Any underlying oral or periodontal issues should be treated prior to a cosmetic procedure. This means getting cavities filled and receiving the appropriate treatment for periodontal disease, if necessary. By treating these underlying issues first, your results will be even more dramatic.
Cosmetic Dental Procedures Available at Value Dental Centers Tempe
We offer a full range of cosmetic procedures to meet the individual needs of our patients. When you meet with one of our skilled cosmetic dentists, he or she will ask you about your goals. He or she will also discuss your lifestyle and budget with you. After thoroughly examining your teeth, a treatment recommendation can be made based on your goals and budget. Your dentist may recommend multiple treatments, or he or she may select one procedure that can address multiple concerns at once. Any of the following procedures may be recommended:
- Teeth Whitening: Professional teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to eliminate surface stains and dramatically whiten your smile. We offer both in-office and at-home whitening systems for your convenience.
- Porcelain Veneers: Using thin shells of custom-made porcelain, veneers can conceal intrinsic stains and lengthen the teeth to repair chips. Porcelain veneers can also fill in gaps and address other minor misalignment issues.
- Dental Bonding and Contouring: Dental bonding can achieve many of the same results as porcelain veneers at a more affordable cost. Contouring may be used to reshape teeth that are sharp or too pointy, and can shorten overly long teeth.
- Invisalign®: For more moderate misalignment issues that cannot be addressed with porcelain veneers or dental bonding, we offer patients Invisalign®. Rather than traditional metal braces, this system uses clear aligners to straighten your teeth over a shorter period of time.
Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
Our cosmetic dental procedures are an effective and minimally invasive way to improve the appearance of your smile. People not only notice your smile when they first meet you, but they notice how you feel about your smile. If you feel self-conscious about your smile, those feelings may affect your relationships with others. When you smile with confidence, other people feel they can trust you and feel comfortable around you.
With our treatments, we can correct any imperfections to dramatically transform your smile. A straighter and brighter smile may give you the confidence to pursue a new job opportunity or to approach someone new and strike up a conversation.
