Cosmetic Dentistry Q&A
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry uses safe and affordable treatments to enhance your smile. Most of these procedures are elective, but some provide the added benefit of improved oral health.
For example, by repairing a severely damaged or decaying tooth, you can prevent the need for root canal therapy or an extraction.
What services does cosmetic dentistry provide?
At Sauer Dentistry, the team provides a variety of cosmetic dental services, including:
Tooth-colored composite fillings
A filling repairs decaying enamel. Traditionally, fillings were made of metal amalgam, but the team at Sauer Dentistry offers composite fillings. Composite fillings are made of resin that looks very similar to your natural tooth enamel. As a result, the fillings appear natural and blend in with your smile.
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain bonded to the front of your teeth. They cover minor oral issues like stains, pointy, or unusually shaped teeth. With proper care and routine check-ups, veneers can last 12-15* years and sometimes even longer.
Teeth whitening is a quick and convenient way to eliminate tooth discoloration. At Sauer Dentistry, the team offers in-office teeth whitening with Philips Zoom! as well as take-home teeth whitening kits made by Opalescence®.
Implants are screw-like posts that provide a sturdy and long-lasting alternative to your permanent teeth. Implants are placed into your jaw during an outpatient procedure. In the months that follow, they integrate with your bone, creating a base for dental restorations like crowns, bridges, or implant-retained dentures.
CEREC crowns are synthetic caps bonded on top of a damaged or decaying tooth. CEREC crowns are unique in that they’re manufactured in-office. That means you can receive a brand new crown in a single visit.
Bridges are a type of dental restoration that closes a gap in your smile. If you’re missing a single tooth (or several teeth in a row) a bridge can reduce the risk of gum recession and prevent your existing teeth from shifting out of position.
How much does cosmetic dentistry cost?
The cost of cosmetic dentistry varies depending on your goals, oral health history, and the amount of work required. Following an in-office consultation, an oral exam, and a series of oral X-rays, the team can create an estimate that aligns with your budget.
