Winston-Salem Cosmetic Dentistry
Confidence in your smile involves more than good oral health; confidence comes from knowing that your healthy smile also looks its best.
Today, we have access to so many innovative materials and techniques that there is really no esthetic problem we cannot correct. Whether you are interested in a simple teeth whitening treatment or want a full smile makeover, the team at the Winston-Salem dental office of Dr. Jeffrey J. Tibbs, DDS, can help!
What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
There is no particular set of services that makes up cosmetic dentistry. Any treatment that offers the benefit of enhancing your appearance can be considered cosmetic.
With state-of-the-art materials, even a service as basic as fillings can improve your appearance while also improving your oral health.
Options for Improving Your Appearance
The first step in any smile makeover is a consultation with Dr. Tibbs. He will listen to your concerns so he can understand what is important to you and how you would like us to help. Your makeover may consist of a single process like whitening, or we may decide that your best smile will be achieved by combining several of our esthetic dental treatments.
Teeth Whitening – Professional whitening is the most popular cosmetic service we offer. Whether you choose a fast in-office whitening or a customized take-home kit, you can achieve a smile that’s about six shades brighter.
Porcelain Veneers – Just about everyone has heard of veneers because they provide such a dramatic smile transformation. We can create a full set, or you may find that all you need to achieve the look you want is one or two veneers placed strategically.
All-Porcelain Crowns – Dental crowns are a good example of a treatment that protects your oral health but also provides esthetic benefits. Our crowns are made using porcelain, a material that mimics the appearance of natural teeth. Since crowns completely conceal the treated teeth, we can use them to correct the appearance of stained or poorly proportioned teeth or change the shape of a tooth completely.
Tooth-Colored Fillings and Bonding – Another updated material we use is tooth-colored composite, which we can shade to perfectly match your natural teeth. We can fill a cavity in a tooth and make a repair that’s virtually invisible. This feature also makes composite filling material perfect for a process called dental bonding that can be used to fill in chips, cracks, and breaks and improve the size and shape of a tooth.
