Cosmetic Dentistry

What is a cosmetic dentist?

Cosmetic dentistry improves the aesthetics of your teeth and smile. You might benefit from cosmetic dentistry if you have teeth that are:

  • Discolored or stained
  • Gapped or spaced out
  • Chipped, broken, or worn
  • Misaligned, misshapen, or uneven

Cosmetic dental procedures can vary in duration and complexity depending on your desired results and the extent of restoration you need. Some cosmetic treatments require a single office visit, while others take multiple appointments. Also, if your teeth have underlying dental issues like disease or decay, Dr. Elazegui treats those problems before beginning treatment.

Dr. Elazegui offers a wide variety of cosmetic treatments at EDental such as teeth whitening, veneers, and dental crowns.

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is one of the simplest and most common cosmetic dental procedures available for improving your smile. This treatment uses bleaching agents like hydrogen peroxide to brighten your teeth.

While several over-the-counter products are available, Dr. Elazegui offers professional treatments to provide immediate results, including in-office procedures with light-activated whitening agents and at-home treatments with custom-made bleaching trays.

What are porcelain veneers?

When you want to cosmetically improve the appearance of your tooth’s shape, size, color, or length, porcelain veneers can provide solutions.

A porcelain veneer is a thin shell of tooth-colored material applied over the surface of your teeth. Because of the natural look and feel of porcelain-made veneers, this cosmetic dental procedure is a great option for highly visible areas like your front teeth.

Care for veneers is the same as natural teeth, and they typically last between 7 and 10 years.

What are dental crowns?

Dental crowns are caps that completely cover the visible part of your tooth above the gumline. This part of your tooth provides functions like chewing as opposed to your tooth’s root which is below the gumline and holds your tooth firmly in your jaw.

Crowns look like teeth, restore your smile, protect the tooth they’re covering from additional damage. This type of cosmetic dental treatment is especially effective for teeth that are:

  • Misshapen
  • Worn down
  • Broken
  • Discolored
  • Decayed
