The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry in Madison
Your smile is one of the first things others notice about you. But when you’re uncomfortable with the way it looks, you might find yourself smiling less. A beautiful smile isn’t just a cosmetic issue—it may adversely affect your confidence and your overall quality of life. Not all of us were born with perfect teeth. But with the help of modern technology, you can correct almost anything you don’t like about your smile. Oak Park Dental offers a wide range of cosmetic dentistry procedures to meet your needs, whatever they may be.
Invisalign is a way to straighten teeth without the clunky, unsightly look of braces. It uses of a set of custom-made plastic aligners worn on the teeth to align them over time. A new set of aligners is switched in every two weeks to gradually shift your teeth into place. And Invisalign isn’t only for straightening individual teeth—it can also correct gaps, overbites, under bites, cross bites, or overcrowded teeth.
Porcelain veneers are thin, durable porcelain masks that fit over your teeth, correcting anything from yellowed teeth to cracks or chips. Porcelain veneers are custom made to fit your teeth and can be successfully placed in just two visits.
DURAthin prepless veneers offer an alternative to porcelain veneers, an attractive option to many patients because the process doesn’t require removing any of the enamel from the original teeth. Prepless veneers are able to correct many of the same problems that porcelain veneers can correct, and the process is completely reversible.
If you’re like most people, you’d like your teeth to shine a little whiter and brighter. Fortunately, Oak Park Dental offers all of the following teeth whitening options to fit your lifestyle and needs.
- Zoom! This process takes only 45 minutes and whitens teeth by an average of 8 shades. It uses a whitening gel and precision light system, and is completed in a single visit to the dentist.
- At-home teeth whitening. This system offers you the flexibility of whitening at home by simply wearing a custom-fit bleaching tray for a period of about two weeks, leaving you with a smile 6 to 10 shades whiter.
- KoR Deep Bleaching system. This treatment combines an in-office procedure with custom take-home trays to penetrate to the inner tissue of the tooth and fight deep stains. Other systems only fight surface stains.
Cosmetic Gum Lifts
Gum lifts, also called gum contouring or gingivectomy, can be performed for individuals who don’t like their “gummy smiles”—caused by an excess of gum tissue that covers up too much of the teeth. Dr. Gyurina is trained in traditional cut-and-stitch techniques as well as laser surgery, both of which allow her to sculpt and contour your gums to reveal a more beautiful smile.
Dental implants are recognized as the safest, healthiest, and most comfortable replacements for missing teeth. Because implants are bonded directly to your jawbone, they don’t slip around—they look and function just like natural teeth. And with proper care, implants can last a lifetime.
Cosmetic dentures offer an alternative method of replacing missing teeth that is often more budget-friendly than dental implants. Oak Park Dental offers partial dentures, full dentures, and implant-supported dentures.
