Dr. David Vierhus Can Improve Your Smile
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Perfect smiles are no longer considered a gift of the genes. With cosmetic dentistry, your dentist can give you a smile makeover like never before. Cosmetic dentistry addresses and enhances several cosmetic aspects of your smile such as tooth shape and color alignmen, spacing and missing teeth.
What are the most common cosmetic dentistry treatments?
As we age, the mineral structure of the teeth changes and the enamel becomes darker and more opaque.. Accumulation of stains and debris causes discoloration and loss of natural luster. Teeth whitening uses a gel, which breaks down the stains to restore the natural color of the teeth. After examining the state of your teeth, only your dentist can get you the right solutions to obtain the best results. Bleaching is an effective relatively inexpensive way to add youth to your smile.
Veneers are wafer-thin casings that cover the front surface of the teeth to improve the appearance. They perfect the color, shape, size or length of the teeth. 1/2 a millimeter of the enamel is removed from the tooth surface and veneers are permanently cemented to the teeth. Once cemented, porcelain veneers are strong and durable. Each custom-made for individuals, they fit perfectly and can make any smile Hollywood ready.
A great alternative to standard metal braces, Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment that straightens the teeth while maintaining the aesthetics of your mouth. Invisalign® or invisible braces shift the teeth horizontally, vertically and even rotates them if required. These custom-made aligners replaced every two weeks use small amounts of force to bring the teeth to the required projected position. Dr. Vierhus has completed hundreds of cases and is considered a Preferred Invisalign® provider.
As an alternative to silver fillings, mercury-free composite materials, tooth-colored fillings are used for cosmetic improvements of your smile. These white fillings can treat discoloration, chips, cracks, and cavities.
