Cosmetic Dentistry Q&A
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry refers to the branch of dentistry that focuses on aesthetic concerns, not on health-related concerns.
Over time, your teeth undergo a fair amount of abuse, from chipping and cracking to staining and discoloring. On top of this, as you age, your natural enamel begins to wear down, leaving a dull, yellowish color.
The goal behind cosmetic dentistry is to undo the effects of wear and tear, time, and previous dentistry, to give you a bright, natural-looking smile that lights up your face.
What types of cosmetic dentistry are available?
Dr. Burnett offers numerous procedures to improve the look of your teeth, including:
Veneers are thin laminates that are affixed to the front of your teeth, giving you whiter teeth or changing the size and shape of your teeth to hide several imperfections.
Dr. Burnett can provide veneers in just a single one-hour visit. It’s important to note that if you choose to get veneers, he files down the front of your tooth to make room for the veneer and this process is irreversible.
Replace silver fillings
Dr. Burnett offers natural-looking white fillings to replace your outdated silver fillings. Dr. Burnett can tackle all your rear teeth and refill them with white fillings that should last a lifetime.
Implants and crowns
If you’re missing a tooth, Dr. Burnett offers dental implants and crowns at an affordable cost. With specialized equipment, Dr. Burnett ensures that the new tooth fits in seamlessly with your existing teeth.
Dr. Burnett offers state-of-the-art laser teeth whitening at his practice, which whitens your teeth in a fraction of the time it takes over-the-counter products, such as strips, gels, and toothpaste, to do the job.
Can I get same day results?
The answer to this question depends on the cosmetic procedure you want. Thanks to his in-office lab and advanced imaging equipment, Dr. Burnett can perform several of these methods in just one visit, such as:
- White fillings (though this depends on how many you’d like replaced)
Teeth whitening may require more than one visit, depending upon your whiteness goals.
