Galena Cosmetic DentistryAlmost anybody could be a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry. If you feel unhappy about your smile or want to brighten, straighten and repair your teeth to look younger, cosmetic dentistry may be right for you. Today’s advanced cosmetic dentistry procedures can enhance your smile and boost your self-confidence and health.

If you have been living with a less-than-perfect smile, thinking that it is not worthwhile or not possible to improve it, you might be surprised at the possibilities. The entire field of dentistry has changed enormously with the advent of computers, lasers, and increased focus on cosmetic solutions.

Abundant Cosmetic Dentistry Choices

Cosmetic dentistry solutions are typically customized for your individual dental needs. Some are quick one-visit procedures, such as dental bonding, laser gum recontouring, and in-office teeth whitening, and some require some time to pass for the final results, such as Invisalign, which is an alternative to braces for repositioning all the teeth.

In between is a host of other cosmetic dental options. Dental porcelain is a new material for white fillings, porcelain veneers, and placing dental crowns. It is so similar-looking to tooth enamel that nobody will know you have any dental restorations.

Solutions for More Extensive Dental Problems

In some cases, a person has dental issues that cannot be successfully addressed by cosmetic dentistry and restorative work is needed. If you have lost some teeth, dental implants – artificial tooth roots – can be positioned in the jaw bone to anchor bright new teeth. You can even have all your teeth replaced in this permanent way.

There is also the option of a full mouth reconstruction, where a customized series of procedures will correct your dental problems and create a new, straight smile.

Dr. Ted Murray and Dr. Kristen Berning take a conservative approach to cosmetic dentistry, using today’s most natural-looking dental materials and the latest techniques. Your safety, comfort, and reduced recovery time are our priorities, and our professional dental team strives daily to ensure a relaxing experience and beautiful results for you.

We place a high value on patient education. If you would like to know more about the cosmetic dentistry options to improve your smile, we will be glad to schedule an initial visit for you. Dr. Ted Murray and Dr. Berning are both happy to answer questions and explain how the various procedures work and which ones would give you the best results.
