Cosmetic dentistry prioritizes enhancing the appearance of your teeth over correcting functional concerns. While many aesthetic treatments can improve tooth damage, they primarily aim to create more attractive smiles by correcting imperfections, such as discoloration or minor fractures.
If you’re unhappy with the way your smile looks, cosmetic dentistry can dramatically improve its appearance. Some of the most common aesthetic concerns that cosmetic dentistry addresses include:
Cosmetic treatments can also target multiple concerns in one treatment for a transformational smile makeover.
Federal Way Dental offers several cosmetic treatments, such as:
In-office teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure that removes stains and discoloration from your teeth. The team applies a carbamide or hydrogen peroxide solution to your teeth that breaks up and removes unwanted discoloration for a noticeably brighter smile in an hour or less.
Veneers are custom-made porcelain or laminate coverings that hide imperfections in your teeth. These cosmetic shells can alter the shape, size, and color of your teeth for a more polished, uniform appearance.
Invisalign is an orthodontic system that straightens teeth and improves malocclusions (abnormal bites) with thin, transparent clear aligners. These custom-made removable devices allow you to eat, drink, brush and floss without the hassle of conventional braces.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that cover the entire tooth from the gumline. A crown can improve the appearance of a damaged or decayed tooth, while also restoring its shape and size.
After a cosmetic treatment, the Federal Way Dental team may provide aftercare instructions to preserve your newly polished smile. Every treatment requires different types of aftercare, but common tips typically include:
The team also recommends staying current on your bi-annual teeth cleanings and dental exams to check for damage or decay.
