Cosmetic dentistry refers to a group of oral treatments that improve the appearance of your teeth, gums, and smile. These treatments usually aren't necessary to prevent tooth decay and gum disease, but they can improve jaw alignment and restore damage from accidents or injuries.
At Emery & Scuro DMD, PC, the team offers a comprehensive suite of cosmetic dentistry services, including:
Teeth become yellow and stained due to the natural aging process, poor oral hygiene, and habits like tobacco use or drinking coffee. Teeth whitening treatments provide a safe and effective way to eliminate stains, restoring your teeth to their near-original, pearly white condition. The team offers both in-office teeth whitening and take-home whitening trays.
Bridgework refers to the design and placement of dental bridges. A dental bridge is an oral prosthetic that fills a gap in your smile caused by a missing tooth. There are several types of dental bridges, but all feature a false tooth and supportive framework to restore your smile.
Veneers are custom-made shells of porcelain or composite resin your dentist bonds to the front of your natural teeth. Veneers restore balance and symmetry to your smile. They’re also an excellent option if your teeth don’t respond to traditional whitening treatments.
If you’re missing one, several, or all your permanent teeth, dental implants can restore your chewing and biting abilities. Dental implants are small, metal posts that serve as replacement tooth roots. Depending on your needs, they can attach to crowns, bridges, or implant-supported dentures.
If you have crooked and overcrowded teeth or misaligned jaws, orthodontics can align your smile and help you achieve the best possible jawline profile. There are several types of orthodontic treatments available, for both children and adults.
Traditionally, dental fillings used metal amalgam, gold, or silver. Although these materials are incredibly durable, they don’t blend in with your teeth. This means they’re visible whenever you speak or yawn. Tooth-colored fillings mimic the color and light-reflecting properties of your tooth enamel, ensuring no one knows you’ve had any work done.
If you develop a cavity or chip or break a tooth, a dental crown can prevent further damage and limit pain. Crowns are tooth-shaped coverings that cover the entire portion of your tooth that sits above the gum line.
The type of cosmetic dentistry that will most benefit you depends on your oral health, your goals for treatment, and your budget. Following an oral exam, review of your medical history, and an in-office discussion, your Emery & Scuro DMD, PC provider can develop a treatment plan that aligns with your needs.
