At Oquirrh Dental in Magna, UT, we want everyone to have not only a healthy mouth, but a beautiful smile. Good oral health and beautiful smiles go together. We offer many cosmetic dental services to help you to have beautiful teeth, and many dental services that rebuild, straighten or restore teeth for good oral health have cosmetic benefits as well. Let’s take a look at some of the services we offer here Magna UT cosmetic dentistry and what they can do for you.
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular options in cosmetic dentistry. With professional teeth whitening, you can get teeth that are noticeably whiter in just one visit. There are several different options for teeth whitening, with all of them including protection for your gums. This protection allows us to safely use the strongest whitening agents for the best results.
Porcelain veneers can dramatically improve your smile and offer the most natural-looking results. This is because porcelain is translucent and reflects light the same way that natural dental enamel does. Porcelain veneers are thin coverings that fit over the front of your front teeth. With porcelain veneers you can change the color of your teeth, cover lines, reshape your front teeth and more.
Dental bonding is an economical alternative to porcelain veneers. Bonding can accomplish most of the same things that veneers can, but the material is less costly, though it still provides beautiful results. Sometimes dental bonding can be completed in just one office visit, so you can leave the office with your beautiful new smile the same day you came in.
Orthodontics is not just a cosmetic procedure. Straight teeth are healthier because they are easier to clean thoroughly, and maintain the structure of the underlying bones and of your jaws. Crooked teeth or misaligned teeth can cause other teeth to shift and put stress on your jaws. Getting straight teeth for your oral health and for your smile can be accomplished with traditional orthodontics like braces, or with Invisalign aligners. Invisalign is for teens and adults who require straightening of their front teeth and do not have serious bite issues. For cases that require braces, there are options including lingual braces that go on the back of your teeth, colored braces, clear braces and more.
Inlays and onlays are tooth-colored repair materials similar to fillings. Made of resin, porcelain or gold, inlays and onlays are often used when a significant portion of a tooth has been damaged. Unlike fillings, inlays and onlays can actually increase the strength of a tooth, and they can last for decades.
Dental crowns are a step beyond inlays and onlays, and they are used when a tooth is severely damaged and needs complete restoration 180 degrees around. Dental crowns restore full strength, function and appearance to damaged teeth.
