Cosmetic dentistry can be transformative to your smile and your confidence!
Our office specializes in cosmetic dentistry. This means that we not only pay attention to the health and function of your teeth, but we also pay close attention to aesthetics. We want you to maintain great oral health but we also want you to have a beautiful smile and the confidence to smile often!
With our expertise, advanced technology and knowledge, we can help you visualize and attain the beautiful smile you want. Using one procedure, such as veneers, or perhaps a combination of procedures, we can transform your smile and help you have the confidence that comes with knowing your smile looks great!
Procedures used alone or in combination to create beautiful smiles include:
Teeth will naturally lose their brightness over time. Drinking coffee or tea, or using tobacco, as well as certain childhood medications can cause teeth to discolor or darken even faster than normal.
Dr. Potts and Dr. Mahmood prefer to use the Kör Whitening system. Your teeth get equally white without any of the side effects of other whitening systems.
Fastbraces® is an affordable and fast option to traditional braces with a unique design that includes flexible wires.
There are two major brands of invisible braces—Invisalign and Clear Correct. Dr. Potts is certified to place either brand, but he prefers Clear Correct. Not only are their lab fees less expensive, but they are also more flexible during treatment if adjustments need to be made. The procedure is similar no matter which brand you choose.
Snap-on Smile is a manufactured smile that snaps right over your existing teeth. If you’re looking for a fast way to get a smile makeover at a fraction of the price of porcelain veneers, then snap-on smile might be for you. Made out of crystallized acetyl resin by Den-Mat Laboratories, it will not be the type of stunning smile you would get with porcelain veneers, but it can improve your smile. Below are pictures that will give you an idea of what type of results you can expect.
Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural appearance of teeth. To place a veneer, a thin layer of the original tooth enamel must be removed. Afterward, an adhesive layer is placed between the prepared tooth and the veneer. The adhesive is then hardened with the use of a specialized curing light.
Cosmetic bonding is the process of filling or restoring teeth with a tooth-colored material in order to improve a tooth’s appearance. In order to bond a tooth, composite material is added to the tooth structure to adjust the size, shape, or color of the existing tooth.
This technique can minimize or eliminate stains, yellowing or spots by removing a very thin layer of the tooth’s enamel.
