Cosmetic dentistry has skyrocketed in popularity over the past few decades. At Cambridgeside Dental Associates, we specialize in several cosmetic services aimed at improving the appearance of your teeth and overall smile. From minor cosmetic changes to full-tooth restorations, we have got you covered!
As a thin aligner, Invisalign is a well-known brand that has a long history in orthodontics. As an aligner, its strong material is able to flex and conform to the teeth perfectly. As it is suggested, the aligner is able to provide a straighter set of teeth that will be seen less by others. With Invisalign aligners being clear in nature, they are able to give a nice fit to the wearer.
Your smile creates a lasting impression on those around you. When your teeth are dull and discolored, it can send the wrong message. Discolored teeth can also make you self-conscious, and cause you to hide your smile, which can give the impression that you are unfriendly or cold. At Cambridgeside Dental Associates, we can help with teeth whitening.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that completely covers the visible portion of a damaged or decayed tooth. In previous years, a dental crown was fabricated using a gold or silver amalgam. These days, porcelain is usually the material of choice. Porcelain is a ceramic compound that mimics the light-reflective properties of natural enamel. It can also be textured and color-matched to your existing teeth. Thanks to porcelain and other ceramics, crowns can also be used to fix the aesthetics of an unsightly tooth.
A dental veneer is a razor-thin shell that is bonded to the front surface of a tooth. Like our dental crowns, our veneers are typically made from porcelain. Veneers can be used to fix teeth that are severely discolored, worn down, chipped or broken, misaligned, uneven, irregularly shaped, or even gapped. During the procedure, we have to remove a small amount of enamel to accommodate the thickness of the veneer. For this reason, the veneer procedure is considered irreversible.
Patients looking for a less-invasive and more cost-effective solution may benefit from dental bonding. Dental bonding involves the application of composite resin, a putty-like material, to the surface of an aesthetically displeasing tooth. For example, dental bonding is an excellent solution for minor chips or cracks. During the procedure, the composite resin will be color-matched to the existing shade of your enamel, making it virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your tooth.
As the name suggests, a CEREC same-day crown is a crown that is added to the prepared tooth the day that the tooth is prepared. If you have ever had a root canal treatment from a dentist, you know that the crowning procedure can take days. So the industry developed same-day crowns to get rid of the wait and deliver instant satisfaction to the patient.
