You'd like to show off your best possible smile, but frankly, the appearance of your teeth leaves something to be desired. Yellowed enamel, a gap between your two front teeth and a chip off a bottom tooth detract from your otherwise healthy gums and teeth. Here's where cosmetic dentistry comes in. Offered by Dr. Jennifer Georgiades at Emerald Coast Family Dentistry in Pensacola, FL, cosmetic dentistry services improve tooth color and shape and overall smile aesthetics. Yes, you can be proud of your smile. Here's how.
What a cosmetic dentist in Pensacola does
Dr. Georgiades translates her patient's smile goals into reality, and it all begins with an oral examination, X-rays and other imaging at Emerald Coast Family Dentistry. The dentist gets a good look at your teeth and gums, making sure they are healthy before studying the smile's potential for change.
Doctor and patient discuss:
- Tooth color and stains
- Tooth alignment
- Flaws such as chips, gaps, pits and uneven length
- Excess gum tissue
With clear goals in mind, Dr. Geordiades can offer a treatment plan customized to suit your needs, wants, budget and of course, personality. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry says that a smile is a real expression of the person inside. So when your smile looks it's very best, you can feel confident that the world sees the real you.
Offered cosmetic treatments
The most sought after and economical cosmetic dental treatment is professional teeth whitening. Offered as an in-office or at-home service, teeth whitening removes years of deep discoloration from smoking, dark foods and drinks, prescription medications and simple aging. Both methods use concentrated hydrogen peroxide gel and leave teeth several shades whiter in color without any adverse side effects.
Direct bonding, or composite resin bonding, uses a tooth-colored putty to reshape small flaws such as gaps, chips, cracks and odd shape. Sculpted by your cosmetic dentist in Pensacola, this unique blend of glass and plastic is hardened and polished to a durable finish that lasts for years with routine at-home and in-office care. Composite resin also restores decayed teeth with fillings that are seamless and bonded directly to healthy tooth structure. Tooth-colored fillings are a great alternative to dark metal fillings.
Porcelain veneers are tooth-shaped shells of fine porcelain. Translucent and natural-looking, custom-crafted veneers disguise the front of flawed teeth and add durability. They are a permanent refurbishment that lasts for up to twenty years.
