WHAT IS COSMETIC DENTISTRY?

The advances in dental technology have lead to many new ways for patients to get a healthy, white smile. You may wonder “what is cosmetic dentistry?” and the answer is that it ranges from natural fillings to dental implants to braces, dentures and everything in between. The dentists at Gendler Dental Center in Hopkins, Minnesota provide a wide range of cosmetic dentistry services.

The cosmetic dentistry procedures we provide give our patients improved teeth and a more beautiful smile. Our practice also provides sedation dentistry to our high fear, high anxiety, low pain threshold patients as a way to relieve fear and help you get back to great dental health.

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE COSMETIC DENTISTRY PROCEDURES WE OFFER?

Natural Fillings: Gone are the days when you have to worry about opening your mouth to laugh or smile and having everyone see dark or silver fillings. The dentists at Gendler Dental Center can replace those fillings with natural-looking alternatives. In addition to looking better, a benefit of using natural-colored fillings is they strengthen the tooth.

We believe that porcelain is one of the best materials for dental inlays or onlays. It is more durable than other filling materials and can preseve more of the natural tooth. Porcelain creates a water tight seal when bonded to natural teeth.

With porcelain fillings we are able to match inlays and onlays to your natural teeth. With natural fillings, no one will even know you have fillings.

Dental Bleaching: There are many foods, drinks and items that stain your teeth, including:

  1. Coffee
  2. Wine
  3. Medications
  4. Tobacco

These substances can create unsightly stains and that makes your smile less attractive. You don’t have to live with stained, dingy teeth if you schedule an appointment with the dentists at Gendler Dental Center and have an in-office tooth bleaching procedure. This usually only takes one appointment, making it a faster, more convenient alternative over-the-counter tooth whitening kits.

During a tooth bleaching session, one of our dentists applies bleach to the surface of your teeth. AFter that’s done a powerful light is shone on your teeth. This process releases oxygen, which helps the bleach achieve outstanding results.

Ask us about home bleaching kits which are more effective than what you can purchase in the grocery store. With the kits we offer you will use a bleaching tray to whiten teeth while you sleep. The trays are fitted to your unique mouth shape and your teeth assuring the bleach reaches the surface of all of your teeth. You will receive detailed, easy to understand instructions for the entire procedure.

Dental Implants And Dental Bonding: If you sustained dental trauma and that means you have a missing tooth or multiple teeth, you may be embarrassed to smile. We can help you regain your smile through dental implants or other cosmetic dental procedures. at any point, you may have missing or damaged teeth. A dental implant is a permanent way to repair your smile.

If you opt for a dental bonding treatment, your dentist at our Hopkins, MN dental practice will apply a resin to the outer surface of the damaged tooth/teeth. The resin matches your other teeth and is useful for repairing a chipped tooth or for changing the shape of your teeth. Dental bonding is less expensive and less involved than other dental procedures and may be the ideal fit for your lifestyle and your budget.
