Why Patients Seek Out Casual Cosmetic Dentistry
The only thing casual about it is the treatment involved - our tools and skills will always be at the highest bar. Treatment without big patient commitment is appealing for many reasons. Some of the most common include:
Any of those sound appealing? You might be interested in one of the following treatment options.
Whitening has long been the standard for quick cosmetic treatment. It's popular because it's not painful, it's effective, and it has a big impact on your overall smile. Just lightening the shade of your teeth livens up your entire face. You look younger and feel more confident. In-office whitening offers immediate results, while home whitening will yield a more gradual lightening of your enamel.
Dental bonding involves the shaping and placement of tooth-colored composite on a tooth. It can be used to lengthen, reshape, whiten, fill gaps, or otherwise tailor a tooth. The resin is hardened immediately after being placed, so you don't need to wait for a restoration to return from a lab, or return for a second appointment. Dr. Okamura will match the shade of the composite to your surrounding teeth so that the bonded area blends in.
Contouring – The edges of your front teeth play a big role in your smile. By reshaping the edges, we can add symmetry and change your grin's overall appearance. Dr. Okamura will contour your teeth in a single appointment, without anesthesia. You'll be amazed by what a significant difference tiny aesthetic adjustments can make.
