While cosmetic dentistry is not a specific dental field, there are a number of organizations that provide advanced training for cosmetic dentistry procedures. Since all dental treatments are aimed to improve the appearance of a patient’s smile, teeth, and gums, many treatments are in fact cosmetic in nature. Dr. Dockham enjoys learning and training in providing cosmetic treatments, so you can rest assured your mouth and smile are in good hands.
Dockham Dental Care provides a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures including:
Crowns & Bridges
If you have received severe damage to your teeth or are suffering from tooth decay, crowns may be necessary. A crown restores the strength, function, and esthetics of the remaining tooth by covering it. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials, and the options will be discussed when you come in for a consultation or appointment. Together with Dr. Dockham, you will find the crown option that best fits you and the part of your mouth that needs to be restored.If injury, gum disease, or decay cause tooth loss, bridges can be used. If it is not corrected, a missing tooth, or teeth can cause greater problems for you health. Composite, or tooth-colored fillings can be adhesively held into place. This bonding allows for more conservative preparations where less healthy tooth structure is removed. Because they are tooth-colored, composite fillings look more natural, and can be polished and shaped to match the tooth, leaving it feeling like a natural tooth.
Porcelain veneers are custom-made, thin casings that are applied to the front side of teeth to correct discoloration, chips, and misshapen teeth. Like composite fillings, they are made with tooth-colored materials, and will look and feel natural in your mouth. Typically, a small amount of tooth enamel will have to be removed in order to fit the veneers onto your teeth. This makes the procedure an often irreversible treatment option, so be prepared for a permanent improved look to your smile!
Professional Teeth Whitening
One of the easiest and simple ways to rejuvenate your smile is through teeth whitening. Our in-office whitening system is powerful and as convenient as an at-home whitening kit. Sometimes we recommend a combination of the two. When you visit our office for whitening procedures, we will suggest and develop a whitening plan personalized to you. This plan is based on your dental conditions, budget, and overall expectations. Teeth whitening can lead to a healthier mouth because we tend to take care of our teeth when they look more attractive and cleaner. We think you will love the results of our whitening program, and will enjoy having a more dazzling and brighter smile.
Clear Correct™ Teeth Straightening
A simple and clear alternative to traditional braces, Clear Correct™ is a series of custom-made, clear, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. As you wear them, each aligner moves your teeth a little bit at a time. Most people will not notice you’re wearing them, because they are practically invisible. Because they fit you perfectly, you will feel more comfortable when you are wearing them. Plus, you can eat whatever you like, since they are removable and your clean your teeth normally.
