Cosmetic Dentistry Solutions for Your Smile Improvement

Having good oral health does not always mean having pearly white, straight teeth. A great smile can be the source of strong first impressions and heightened self-confidence. The Dental Center in Cedar Rapids, IA has the knowledge and experience to work with you in gaining the big, beautiful smile that you deserve. Cosmetic dentistry can improve the appearance and even function of your teeth. There are many solutions to choose from to get your teeth where you want them to be. Let’s take a brief look at three available cosmetic dentistry options in Sanford.

Replace Missing Teeth with Dental ImplantsCosmetic Dentistry in Cedar Rapids, IA

Dental implants are a great, permanent solution to missing teeth. The procedure surgically implants hardware into or onto the bone in your jaw to hold prosthetic teeth that function at the same level as and match your natural teeth. Chewing and speaking may also be made easier. Removable dentures can mean a potentially embarrassing situation, as they can shift or fall out during a conversation or meal. Dr. Wooddell and her team are prepared to work with you to help you better understand and execute this procedure. 

A Hollywood Smile with Veneers

If your teeth are not missing, but are not the most aesthetically pleasing to you, porcelain veneers are a wonderful option. Veneers are very thin, cap-like shells that are bonded to the front of the tooth. They easily change the color of the teeth and can be used to repair chipped, broken or uneven teeth, making them a viable option for those who want a bigger, whiter smile. 

Brighten Your Smile with Teeth Whitening

If you are happy with the shape of your teeth, but not the color, teeth whitening procedures may be a better fit for you. Professional tooth whitening can improve the color of your teeth tenfold within an hour or two. While stronger agents are applied in the procedure, in-office whitening ensures that your gums and the rest of your mouth are protected. There are also precautions put into place that prevent damage to the tooth enamel. Whitening can last for one year or longer, and is a great short-term fix for discolored or stained teeth.
