Our Extensive Cosmetic Services

When you come in to discuss our cosmetic services, we'll start by identifying your aesthetic goals. We'll also pinpoint the areas in your smile you want to target for improvement. Our dentist will then perform a thorough oral examination and may also take digital scans to determine your most effective options for treatment.

Some of the popular cosmetic dental services to whiten, straighten, or transform your smile include:

  • Teeth Whitening: At our practice, you can choose between in-office teeth whitening with Opalescence Boost™, administered by our skilled team, or our take-home teeth whitening method, which allows you to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your home. We use Colgate Elite 3D Optic for take-home whitening kits, which include custom trays for even, beautiful results. We also offer Opalescence™ prefilled trays for patients who want a quick whitening boost without waiting for custom trays to be created.
  • Tooth-Colored Restorations: If you're missing teeth or have one or multiple compromised teeth, they can stick out as unwanted focal points in your smile. We offer multiple options for aesthetically pleasing dental restorations. From crowns to tooth-colored composite fillings and sturdy dental implants, we'll leverage our experience to artfully complete your smile. The high-quality materials and custom design used to create your restorations mean they'll fit in seamlessly, improving the cosmetic appeal of your whole smile.
  • Dental Veneers: Veneers are a great solution to provide a uniform appearance for the size, shape, and color of your visible front teeth. We're happy to place as many or as few as you want and can use veneers to fix a single tooth or your entire visible smile. These thin porcelain shells cover the front surface of your teeth and can be customized to give you the smile design you want. Veneers can also be a great fix for cracked, damaged, or slightly crooked teeth and for concealing gaps between teeth.
  • Invisalign® Clear Aligners: Invisalign orthodontic treatment helps straighten teeth for adults without using typical metal braces. Invisalign clear aligners are a series of translucent trays that are custom fit to your teeth and gently apply pressure over time to guide your teeth into the proper alignment. Clear braces are a convenient option for teeth straightening because the trays are removable and discreet. You won't have to worry about altering your diet, and your normal oral hygiene routine can stay the same. Our dentist will be available to consult with you about whether your misalignment issues are treatable with Invisalign clear braces.

Laser Dentistry for Revitalizing Your Smile

If you have a "gummy smile" where your gums encroach high up on the surface of your teeth, laser contouring is an excellent option for enhancing the appearance of your teeth. Laser dental treatments use specific wavelengths of concentrated light that are strong enough to affect gum tissue but won't damage the structure of your teeth.

Our dental team is excited to be able to offer laser dentistry. We've undergone special training to deliver this advanced treatment safely, and we're passionate about showing you how these procedures can benefit your oral health and smile aesthetic. If you struggle with a gummy smile, don't hesitate to ask how laser gum contouring can enhance the appearance of your smile.

Springfield Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Transforming your smile can involve a single treatment or multiple treatments, leaving you with many questions or concerns. Our team is ready to provide answers and help you feel confident about any service we recommend. Some of the most common questions we receive about cosmetic dentistry include:

Are cosmetic dental treatments permanent?
The longevity of cosmetic dental treatments varies depending on the type of procedure and how well you maintain your oral health. For example, teeth whitening may need touch-ups over time, while dental veneers and dental implants can last for over a decade with proper care.

Can anyone undergo cosmetic dental procedures?
Generally, most adults are candidates for cosmetic dental procedures. However, a thorough evaluation by our dentist is necessary to determine which treatments are suitable for you based on factors such as oral health, existing dental conditions, and treatment goals.

How long does it take to see results from cosmetic dental treatments?
The timeframe for seeing results depends on the specific treatment being performed. Teeth whitening and dental veneers can produce noticeable results after just one session, while treatment with Invisalign aligners may take several months to achieve the desired outcome.
