If you want to find out more about our cosmetic dentist in Kennewick or if you are interested in seeing how we can help you then the only thing that you have to do is take a look below.
Bonding is quite possibly the most effective way for you to repair a huge range of minor issues. This can include tooth decay, chipped teeth and more. Bonding will require your Kennewick dentist to remove any decayed or damaged areas before applying a professional bonding agent. This is then shaped to match the shape of your natural teeth. The whole procedure is quick and painless, but it is an effective way for you to put an end to your dental woes.
A cosmetic dentist in Kennewick, Washington will normally use dental implants to replace any missing teeth. Your dentist will implant a very small screw into your jaw. The screw will then serve as a permanent support for the crown. First, the screw needs to heal, and the surrounding tissue has to fuse to it. Your dentist will then add the crown and when everything is sorted, you won’t be able to tell the difference between that and your normal teeth.
Whitening is another type of cosmetic dentistry. It’s the most common of all cosmetic procedures. Your dentist will start by cleaning your teeth to make sure that there is absolutely no tartar left on the surface of your teeth. A whitening solution will then be applied so that you can achieve the shade of white you are looking for. You can even go a shade lighter than your teeth if you want, so there really are no limits to how you want your teeth to look.
Indirect fillings are otherwise known as inlays or onlays. They are made in a laboratory and they are also designed to suit your teeth. Indirect fillings are normally used when moderate tooth decay has occurred or when there is not enough of a tooth left in order to support a normal filling. Inlays are used when a tooth’s cusp is still there. The inlay can be placed onto the surface of the tooth, repairing it effectively.
Veneers are made for each patient on an individual basis. They are designed to resemble the natural look of your teeth and they are also made out of super-strong ceramic. They are very realistic and again, normally indistinguishable from a normal tooth. Veneers are ideal if you want to fix any cosmetic issue, such as cracked enamel or even crooked teeth. Our dentist can easily advise you on the best form of treatment if you are not sure.
