Our smiles are one of the first features people notice about us. Yet, more than half of American adults are insecure about their teeth. This smile insecurity may be due to chipped enamel, gaps, discoloration, or even a missing tooth. Whatever the reason for your frustration, our cosmetic dentist, Dr. David P. Ney, can transform your teeth, giving you a smile to be proud of.
What Does a Cosmetic Dentist Do?
Cosmetic dentistry is all about elevating your confidence and self-esteem. Just like a great salon experience can make you feel like the best version of yourself, a cosmetic dentist can help bring out the best in your smile. With 25 years of experience, Dr. Ney has the knowledge and skill to design a personalized treatment plan that addresses and corrects your smile imperfections.
Dr. Ney’s approach to dental care is comprehensive. Before addressing cosmetic aspects, he ensures that any underlying oral health issues are addressed. This holistic approach balances beauty and health to create a smile that is aesthetically pleasing and promotes optimal oral well-being for each patient.
Cosmetic Dentistry Services
There are many different procedures that a cosmetic dentist like Dr. Ney can use to enhance your smile. While some individuals will need just one treatment, others may benefit from a combination of procedures to best meet their smile goals.
- Mini dental implants: Used to replace missing or severely damaged teeth, mini dental implants are a sleek and streamlined upgrade from traditional dental implants. They can be used in many procedures, from single tooth replacement to dentures. They’re less invasive than conventional options, quicker to place, and help fill those unwanted gaps in your smile. Besides looking good, they also keep your jawbone healthy by providing essential stimulation.
- Porcelain veneers: These thin porcelain shells are permanently bonded to the front of your teeth and combine looks with function. A cosmetic dentist uses veneers to cover imperfections on your teeth and create a uniform smile. So, if you have teeth that are stained, chipped, or have gaps, veneers can provide a natural yet noticeable transformation.
- Dental crowns: These are like protective helmets for severely damaged teeth. Crowns are used to restore the look and function of the tooth since tooth enamel will not regenerate like other types of cells in the body. Tooth-colored crowns, specifically, serve a dual function: They guard the tooth from further damage and restore its appearance.
- Dental bonding: Dr. Ney sculpts a tooth-colored resin to cover flaws, like a touch-up job on a car’s paint. Not only does dental bonding improve the look of flawed teeth, but it also offers protection against tooth sensitivity and decay by bolstering the tooth’s structure.
- Composite dental fillings: Gone are the days of shiny silver fillings peeking out whenever you laugh. With today’s composite fillings, we can discreetly restore your tooth’s health.
How Much Does a Visit to a Cosmetic Dentist Cost?
The price of cosmetic dentistry services ranges depending on several factors:
- The type of the procedure
- The number of teeth needing treatment
- The materials used
- The technology of equipment needed
