Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

Dental Impressions

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry uses advanced techniques to improve the look of your teeth and overall smile. Cosmetic dental techniques can enhance the look of uneven, broken, or stained teeth. But moreover, these procedures can even improve how your teeth function in some cases.

A wide range of cosmetic dental services is available at Dental Impressions, including:

  • Bonding
  • Whitening
  • Veneers
  • Tooth reshaping
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Dental implants

Dr. Bader and his team can make minor repairs or major restorations to enhance your smile's appearance. Cosmetic dentistry can also improve your self-confidence and help you love your smile again.

What is bonding?

Dr. Bader uses tooth bonding to fill in tooth gaps, chips, or cracks. Bonding can also help the appearance of discolored teeth.

This technique involves using tooth-colored bonding agents that closely match your natural tooth color. During a bonding procedure, Dr. Bader covers the entire tooth in the bonding material, then reshapes it for a more natural look.

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that Dr. Bader fits over your front teeth to restore their shape or color. He may recommend veneers if you have teeth that are:

  • Uneven
  • Discolored
  • Poorly shaped
  • Cracked or chipped

Dr. Bader makes an impression of your teeth and sends the mold to a dental lab that creates custom-made veneers. Your veneers are complete in 1-2 weeks.

Once the veneers are ready, Dr. Bader lightly buffs the surface of your front teeth to remove a small amount of enamel.

He glues the veneer to the front of your tooth with a special dental cement. Then he uses a special light to harden the cement and permanently bond the veneer.

Which cosmetic dental services are right for me?

If you want to improve the look of your smile, Dr. Bader is ready to help. When you come in for a cosmetic consultation, he evaluates the health and condition of your teeth with a thorough exam to determine which one is right for you.

However, before recommending any particular solution, Dr. Bader will always discuss your cosmetic goals and expectations. Doing so ensures that you receive a treatment that can satisfy your desires.
