Professional Cosmetic Dentistry With Your Centralia Dentist

Smiling with confidence feels excellent and is an essential social and professional asset. Yet, many people still avoid showing their teeth in public or in photographs because they don’t like what they see. If that sounds like you, are you a great candidate for a smile makeover with a cosmetic dentist?

A smile makeover goes beyond dental problems. It’s a comprehensive smile-rejuvenation plan to fit your unique facial features and aesthetic preferences. It comes with dramatic results in terms of how you look and feel. 

The makeover process is about giving you your desired smile. Take a good look and note the pros and cons of your smile. 

Some questions you can ask yourself are:

  • Are your teeth too large or small?
  • How are the alignment and spacing of your teeth?
  • Are your teeth crooked or gapped?
  • Are your teeth white?
  • Are any teeth chipped, cracked, or worn?
  • Does your smile have a gummy appearance? 

What is Cosmetic Dentistry Anyway?

Cosmetic dentistry improves the aesthetics of your smile. Nobody is born with incredibly perfect teeth. Most of us have considered braces, teeth whitening, and other aesthetic treatments. Some Cosmetic Dentistry Services your Centralia dentist provides, include: 

  • Dental bonding and reshaping
  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental veneers
  • Dental Implants
  • Dental Filling
  • Inlays/Onlays

Do I Need Cosmetic Dentistry?

Are you uncomfortable smiling? Do you sometimes stop yourself from smiling or hide your teeth with your hand? If so, cosmetic dentistry is for you. 

Dr. Ash & Roberts understand that your smile is part of your identity and the first thing people notice. They want to help you be proud of your smile and fearless to flash those pearly whites.  

What are Veneers?

A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain or resin covering the teeth’ front surface. Veneers are custom-made and improve the overall aesthetic of a smile. They can change the shape, close up spaces, and remove significant stains from coffee or red wine (read more here). Porcelain veneers are the most aesthetic and natural tooth possible.

What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is when tooth-colored resins (bonding material) are applied to the damaged tooth. It is sculpted, trimmed, hardened with ultraviolet light, and polished to ensure it matches the rest of the smile (see examples here). 

Tooth bonding can change the shape and color of teeth. Repairing chipped, broken, misaligned, or even discolored teeth is a fast and easy procedure.

Teeth whitening

Who doesn’t want a bright, white flashy smile? Teeth whitening is the simplest and easiest cosmetic procedure to improve your smile. Your Centralia dentist can professionally whiten teeth in our practice in one visit. Or, if you prefer, we can provide custom-made trays so you can whiten your teeth at home.

What Are My Next Steps?

Share your thoughts. In your first consultation at our dental office, describe what you would like to change in as much detail as possible. Bring photos of the smiles you want or how your smile used to look.

Dr. Ash & Roberts, your Centralia dentists, will have some thoughts to share with you. Both dentists have proper training, a keen eye, and a talent for creating fantastic-looking smiles. Cosmetic dentists are trained to look at smiles in facial balance. They will suggest dental procedures that will make you feel comfortable with your smile and help strengthen your teeth, improving your oral health.

An essential part of a smile makeover is a complete dental exam. An exam ensures your teeth are in tip-top shape and don’t have any underlying issues that need to be treated. Cosmetic dentistry has a fantastic array of dental care restorations and treatments. 

A smile makeover is an investment that lasts. Many procedures performed are irreversible. If you are contemplating changes, it’s a great idea to try them out before you fully commit to them. Ask about previewing your future smile with a “trial smile.”

With a “trial smile,” you can preview your smile and ask questions about the makeover process. But when it’s all done, there may be one thing you’re not prepared for — how great it feels to flash your new smile to the world!
