Tips for Choosing a Cosmetic Dentist
There are certain things to look for when choosing the right cosmetic dentist. Some of which include:
- Educational background
- Professional experience and training
- Before and after photos of satisfied patients
- General reviews of past patients
- Type of technology used
- Timeline for various treatments
It is up to you to determine what is most important but remember, a good cosmetic dentist has the knowledge and expertise to carefully craft a new smile. It takes a skillful hand and artistic eye to ensure your new teeth and gums look natural, so make sure to do your homework and don’t hurry your decision just to get started on your new look.
Fortunately, at Tyson Dental Esthetics, Dr. Berrada is a highly-skilled and trained cosmetic dentist who will always have your best interest in mind, making sure you are safe and comfortable while working toward a better smile.
Your Cosmetic Dentistry Consultation
Your cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Berrada will be time well spent, as you will receive a thorough oral examination, which will give her the necessary information to construct a personalized treatment plan. Based on the goals you have in mind as well as the realistic expectations set by both you and the dentist, she will suggest various treatment options along with a cost estimate of how much you can expect to pay for a particular service.
Each cosmetic treatment has its own process and costs, all of which can be factors you consider when choosing how you want to go about changing your smile. While an entire set of veneers may cost more than you originally planned to spend, you may opt for cosmetic bonding for only a few teeth, as this is often a more cost-effective solution.
Ultimately, it will be your decision as to how you wish to go about achieving your fully transformed smile.
The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
Apart from the improved aesthetic you will have thanks to whichever cosmetic treatment you receive, cosmetic dentistry offers additional benefits, such as:
- Greater confidence in the way you look and feel
- Improved oral health because of the ability to hide imperfections and reduce the possibility of increased damage or decay
- Fast results that will have you enjoying a beautiful smile quicker than you ever thought before
- Longer-lasting results as long as you agree to maintain your new smile properly
Cosmetic dentistry has a way of not only improving aesthetics but also changing people’s lives. A smile says a lot about a person, so when flaws and imperfections exist, this can take a toll on self-esteem and cause a downward spiral when it comes to relationships, careers, and more. By embracing the possibilities offered with cosmetic dentistry, you can say goodbye to your current appearance and hello to a new version of a healthier, more beautiful, and more self-assured you.
Our Cosmetic Procedures
At Tyson Dental Esthetics, our vast array of cosmetic services makes it possible for you to choose how you wish to improve your smile. Both you and Dr. Berrada will work together to create a personalized treatment plan that is designed to help you reach your smile goals in no time at all.
What used to be an eyesore in your smile is now invisible thanks to modern dental technology and materials. Tooth-colored fillings cross the boundary between restorative and cosmetic dentistry. As a filling, they are restorative. However, because they are made of composite resin shades to match the color of your tooth, they are cosmetic, as well. So now, you can have your tooth repaired even as you maintain the attractive appearance of your smile.
Veneers use thin pieces of durable porcelain used to transform the appearance of stained, cracked, chipped, or misaligned teeth. To give you the most pleasing results, we will carefully design your veneers to complement your overall appearance and the current shade of your teeth. You can achieve a new smile in as little as two appointments with porcelain veneers.
Lumineers are very similar to porcelain veneers in that they involve applying thin pieces of porcelain to the teeth, but there is one main difference: with Lumineers, the teeth don’t have to be modified to fit them. They go directly on the teeth as-is, making them a faster way to enhance the smile. The results aren’t as permanent as porcelain veneers, but they offer a great treatment for those looking for a quick result or who want to “test drive” their new smile before getting veneers.
Metal-Free Dental Restorations
If you happen to damage one of the teeth that shows when you smile, we won’t simply repair it with a metal crown and call it a day. Rather, we’ll utilize a more elegant solution using an all-porcelain crown, inlay, or onlay. These metal-free restorations are just as strong and durable as their metal counterparts, but they can also be specially shaded to perfectly blend with the smile. With them, we won’t just repair your smile, but we’ll restore it to its original form and beauty.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Cosmetic bonding is another alternative to veneers. Using a small amount of composite bonding material, Dr. Berrada can help you change the appearance of a cracked, chipped, or stained tooth in a single visit. During a consultation visit, Dr. Berrada will assess your needs and talk to you about the results you hope to achieve. Then, once we have all the preliminary information we need, we can recommend a specific treatment to help you.
No smile is too far gone, which is why many patients can achieve a new lease on life with a smile makeover. No matter how many flaws or imperfections your smile may have, at Tyson Dental Esthetics, we can combine treatments to completely revamp, repair, and rebuild your teeth and gums. Whether you need teeth whitening and metal-free dental restorations, or instead, you require porcelain veneers and gum recontouring, our team can choose the right solutions for you to help you see a more beautiful smile.
For patients with stained teeth, professional teeth whitening with Venus Whitening makes it possible to achieve a whiter and more attractive smile in just one appointment. Over-the-counter products can offer some help, but only professional whitening can give you truly dazzling results. Let Dr. Berrada talk to you about your whitening options during a consultation visit.
Do your teeth appear to be too short for your face? Would you say that you have a “gummy” smile? If so, we can quickly change that thanks to our soft tissue laser. Your dentist can painlessly remove any excess gum tissue to reveal previously hidden dental structure underneath, and after that, they can shape your gum line along your teeth to give you that perfectly proportioned looked, all over the course of a single appointment.
Virtual Smile Design
Want to see how a cosmetic treatment will change your smile? With our Virtual Smile Design system, we can create your own personal “before and after” pictures. Using a digital photo of your current smile and our in-house software, we’ll manipulate the image to show you what a particular procedure will do for your overall appearance. This will give you a much clearer idea of what to expect after undergoing treatment, plus it will allow you to ask for any adjustments you want.
Cosmetic Dentistry FAQ’s
If you’re considering a smile transformation with cosmetic dentistry, you’re probably curious about the process and what it means for you. That’s why Dr. Berrada has included the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about cosmetic dentistry. Keep reading to get the information you need in order to make a confident investment in your smile.
Which Cosmetic Service is Right for Me?
Because we offer a wide range of cosmetic services, it’s difficult to know which one is best for you before examining your smile first. After an easy and informative consultation with Dr. Berrada, she will be able to provide you with a personalized treatment plan that includes the service(s) you could benefit from most. If you have a variety of cosmetic flaws, we may recommend porcelain veneers. For more minor imperfections, you could be a candidate for cosmetic bonding. The service right for you will all depend on your desired results.
How Long Does It Take to Get My Dream Smile?
In some cases, patients can achieve the smile of their dreams in just one appointment that lasts about an hour. For more extensive cosmetic work, you may have to visit our office multiple times. Your treatment time will directly depend on the types of problems that affect your smile. For example, our porcelain veneers will require 2 separate visits on average, but the results are beautiful, transformative, and completely customized.
Is Cosmetic Dentistry Painful?
No matter what service or treatments your smile needs, we will ensure that you feel numb and comfortable before we begin. Additionally, we offer sedation dentistry to give our patients a greater sense of relaxation. Some treatments like veneers or cosmetic bonding may require preparation of the teeth by removing a slight portion of enamel, but the local anesthetic will make this completely painless.
How Will I Benefit from Cosmetic Dentistry?
The main benefit of cosmetic dentistry is an improved appearance, but the advantages of this type of dental care go far beyond just looks. One of the more significant benefits that you’ll enjoy is boosted confidence. If you’ve been afraid to laugh or smile in public or for photos due to imperfections, you can now confidently flash your teeth in any setting. Additionally, cosmetic dentistry makes it easier to brush and floss at home with a uniform smile. Plus, if you get porcelain veneers, dental porcelain is relatively stain-proof, making it harder to discolor your new teeth.
How Can Advanced Technology Help Me Smile?
At Tyson Dental Esthetics, we want to offer our patients the highest quality and most efficient dentistry available, which is why we have technology like virtual smile design. This state-of-the-art service allows us to virtually map out your smile, and we can show you exactly what your new set of teeth will look like after cosmetic dentistry. What’s even more beneficial is that we won’t have to take messy and inconvenient putty impressions. Instead, we take digital images that are used to build a 3D version of your mouth.
