Enjoy a Dazzling Smile with Fairhope Cosmetic Dentistry
Truthfully, even healthy smiles can end up falling victim to stains, gaps, cracks, chips, and other flaws that take away from their appearance over time. If you’re unhappy with the teeth that are currently staring back at you from mirrors and photographs, Dr. Knight invites you to schedule a cosmetic consultation here at Fairhope Modern Dental. Our available services can dramatically improve your look and help you live your everyday life with plenty of confidence.
Invisalign® Clear Braces
If you’re interested in straightening your teeth but don’t want to wear metal brackets and wires, Invisalign treatment may be the ideal compromise. Patients wear a series of clear aligners that are very subtle in appearance and conveniently removable as well. The people around you probably won’t even notice your treatment – they’ll just see the beautiful improvements that follow.
Veneers are thin porcelain coverings that attach to the front surface of a tooth to change its appearance. They are usually used on otherwise healthy teeth to make minor cosmetic changes, such as shade or shape adjustments. They can also be used to close small spaces between teeth.
When a damaged or weakened tooth needs a new restoration, patients don’t have to sacrifice their smile’s self-confidence for the sake of their oral health. Instead, all-ceramic crowns, inlays, onlays, bridges, and more are the best of both worlds – seamless quality and long-lasting function. These materials are free of potentially harmful metals, 100% biocompatible, and so similar to natural enamel that even reflect light in the same way.
If the cosmetic flaws that you want to fix are relatively minor, dental bonding is a simple and effective solution. After preparing the tooth, Dr. Knight will apply tooth-colored composite resin (precisely shaded to match your existing enamel) to the tooth and sculpt it into a shape that hides the offending area. In most cases, this process will only require one appointment. While direct bonding isn’t likely to last as long as all-ceramic dental crowns or porcelain veneers, patients can still look forward to enjoying beautiful improvements for several years.
Teeth become dull and discolored over time for a wide variety of reasons, such as diet, poor oral hygiene, genetics, or even the use of certain medications. If you are ready to make a dazzling change, consider exploring Zoom!® Whitening here in Fairhope. Dr. Knight offers both in-office and take-home techniques that will lead to professional-strength results.
