Understanding the Value
The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
The biggest benefit of cosmetic dentistry is that it can enhance your self-esteem and confidence. If you feel embarrassed about how your smile looks, you may avoid smiling, laughing, or even eating in public. Cosmetic dentistry can help you feel more confident about your smile and your appearance.
Cosmetic dentistry can also help rejuvenate your appearance and make you look younger. It even contributes to better oral health, since you’re more likely to take good care of your smile once you’ve invested in cosmetic treatment.
What We Offer
Cosmetic Dentistry Services at Forest Lake Smiles
We offer a full suite of cosmetic dentistry services, including:
- Teeth whitening
- Dental bonding
- Porcelain veneers
Take-Home & In-Office
We offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening at Forest Lake Smiles. In-office whitening is a great option if you want fast results, such as a whiter smile for an anniversary, wedding, or another special occasion. At your appointment, Dr. Siverson will use powerful, professional-grade whitening products to boost your smile by up to 5+ shades of brightness in just a single appointment.
We also offer take-home treatment, which allows you to treat yourself in the comfort of your own home and get more gradual, subtle results. When you come to our office, we’ll take impressions of your teeth and make a set of custom-fitted dental trays. Once your trays have been made, we’ll give you a set of whitening compound, and instructions for whitening your teeth. Then, you’ll simply follow these instructions to whiten your teeth gradually over the next several weeks.
Reshape Your Smile
Dental bonding uses dental resin to reshape your teeth and restore your smile. Dr. Siverson will apply tooth-colored dental resin directly to your tooth, then shape it and trim it using special dental tools to improve the appearance of your smile. The bonding process is completely non-invasive, and typically does not require numbing.
Dental bonding can be used to treat most cosmetic dental issues, including gaps in your smile, misshapen or uneven teeth, and stained teeth. It’s also very affordable, so it’s a good choice if you’d like to improve your smile on a budget.
Versatile, Long-Lasting Smile Restoration
Veneers are usually made of porcelain. These dental prostheses are thin and tooth-shaped, and are designed to fit over your natural teeth. Veneers replace the front chewing surfaces of your teeth, allowing them to treat just about any cosmetic imperfections in your smile. They are highly versatile, helping you to completely restore your smile in just two short appointments.
Veneers are also very durable and long-lasting, and look and feel completely natural. To find out if you’re a good candidate for veneers, contact the team at Forest Lake Smiles for a cosmetic consultation today.
What Are The Health Benefits
Of Cosmetic Procedures?
This primarily depends on the type of procedure you undergo at Forest Lake Smiles. Cosmetic dentistry is mostly concerned with restoring your smile and removing aesthetic flaws from your teeth, but there are some situations when it can provide you with oral health benefits, too.
Invisalign, for example, is often recommended as a cosmetic and orthodontic procedure, and it can really help improve your oral health. With Invisalign, you can get a better bite, which will help reduce your risk of oral health problems like TMJ/TMD, and will also help prevent wear & tear on your teeth, which can be caused by an improper bite.
In some cases, veneers can also be a good way to strengthen your teeth, particularly very small or misshapen teeth. A veneer can add more strength and size to the tooth, and help protect it and ensure that it will fit in properly with the rest of your mouth. Veneers may also be used to restore and repair teeth with superficial chips and damage.
Treatments like teeth whitening also have oral health benefits because they affect your day-to-day oral hygiene routine. At Forest Lake Smiles, Dr. Siverson has found that most patients tend to brush and floss more thoroughly after having their teeth whitened. It’s only natural to want to protect your investment and prevent future stains, and this helps improve your overall oral health, too!
Despite all of these benefits, though, it is important to note that cosmetic dentistry is not meant to restore seriously damaged teeth. If you have a broken, infected, or damaged tooth, restorative dentistry like fillings, crowns, and root canals may be required at Forest Lake Smiles.
Am I A Good Candidate
For Cosmetic Dentistry?
You are likely a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry if you have a healthy mouth that’s free of major issues like cavities, damaged teeth, and gum disease. If you do have any serious oral health problems, these typically must be resolved before you can pursue treatment at Forest Lake Smiles from Dr. Jonathan Siverson.
Orthodontics must also be done before you can have cosmetic dentistry, in most cases. For example, if you have crooked teeth, Invisalign is typically done before you can have other treatments like porcelain veneers and dental bonding.
If you have very serious orthodontic problems like a severe bite malocclusion (bad bite), orthodontic treatment with braces may be needed, rather than Invisalign.
To find out more and see if cosmetic dentistry is right for you, you can contact Forest Lake Smiles for a consultation with Dr. Siverson. At your appointment, Dr. Siverson can discuss your eligibility for different cosmetic procedures, and determine if you may need restorative dentistry or orthodontic treatment before getting cosmetic care.
Together, you can develop a smile restoration plan that fits your needs, and feel great about your appearance in Forest Lake. With our insurance and financing options, you can get the cosmetic care you need, even if you’re on a tight budget.
