Cosmetic dentistry uses restorations, whitening treatments, and/or orthodontic appliances to transform your smile.
Most cosmetic procedures are elective, so they aren’t covered by dental insurance. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t worth the investment. When your smile looks stunning, you feel your best. Plus, most cosmetic procedures are very affordable, thanks to advances in treatment.
At J Park Dental, Dr. Park and her team offer various cosmetic dentistry services, including:
Teeth whitening removes stains caused by tobacco use or poor oral hygiene. Dr. Park offers in-office chairside teeth whitening with Philips Zoom!® One treatment session can make your smile up to 8 shades* lighter.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment system that uses removable plastic aligners to improve the position of your teeth and jaw. At J Park Dental, Dr. Park uses Invisalign to correct alignment issues, such as crowding, crooked teeth, and bite abnormalities.
Veneers are shells of porcelain that Dr. Park bonds to the front of your permanent teeth. They cover oral imperfections, like smaller-than-average, pointy, or unusually shaped teeth.
Dr. Park might recommend dental implants if you’ve lost one or more permanent teeth because of extractions or trauma. Implants are small posts Dr. Park inserts into the empty sockets where your teeth used to be. The posts integrate with your bone over time, providing a foundation for crowns or implant-retained dentures.
A dental crown is a synthetic cap bonded over a decaying or severely damaged tooth. The crown restores your tooth to its near-original shape and size, reducing your risk of other problems.
Cosmetic gum contouring
Consider cosmetic gum contouring if you have excess gum tissue, resulting in a gummy smile. Dr. Park uses special tools during treatment to recontour your gumline, making your smile more balanced and symmetrical.
The type of cosmetic dentistry that will most benefit you depends on various things, including your age, dental health history, and budget. After an oral exam, a series of digital X-rays, and a discussion of your goals, Dr. Park makes custom treatment recommendations.
