Designing a new smile with cosmetic dentistry can change lives. Based on your smile, the world assesses your openness, friendliness, intelligence, personality, and even your social status! No wonder celebrities, actors, models and entertainers have long valued dazzling white smiles and gorgeous teeth. At Scottsdale Smile Center, we can help—whether you want to just whiten your teeth or if you want one of the many new procedures that can offer dramatic dental and gum improvements. Our experienced cosmetic dentists utilize state-of-the-art digital photography to show you how your “new” smile will look—a before-and-after virtual preview—before you even sit in the dentist’s chair.
Every treatment is delivered by our top-notch cosmetic dentistry team in our Scottsdale office—a luxurious environment, complete with extra amenities. Please take a look at the following descriptions for more information on our cosmetic dentistry treatments, and contact us today for an appointment.
Porcelain dental crowns can restore severely damaged teeth and improve their appearance at the same time. These custom-designed restorations cover the entire tooth, offering support, strength, and protection. Crowns can be used to attach a dental bridge; restore fractures, chips, and cracks; protect weak teeth; cover a dental implant; restore a tooth following root canal therapy; and much more. A crown is made to provide you with the most precise and accurate fit possible, and it is color-tinted to match your surrounding teeth.
CEREC® is one of the most significant advances in dentistry over the last several years. CEREC® is the only system of its kind – the only system which allows for in-office fabrication of dental restorations that can be completed in a single visit. With CEREC® same-day crowns, patients at our practice can now benefit from fewer injections, reduced dental visits, and less drilling. Our dentists can now create many dental restorations, including crowns and fillings, right here in the office without requiring a return weeks later for the final fitting.
The application of tooth-colored filling material (known as “composite”) to the teeth has been an effective dental technique for many years. Cosmetic dental bonding can be used to restore decayed teeth, close spaces between teeth, repair chips, correct discoloration, and give misaligned teeth a straighter appearance.
Tooth-colored fillings, also known as composite or “white” fillings, are a major improvement over the mercury-based “silver” fillings of the past. With a durable ceramic material, cavities and decay can be treated with none of the risks previously associated with mercury fillings, and yield a cosmetic result that blends in with your natural teeth!
Dental bridges are designed to literally bridge the gap left by one or multiple missing teeth. Composed of porcelain, alloys, gold, or a combination of these substances, this tooth replacement option is securely bonded to adjacent healthy teeth, helping to restore both form and function. As an added benefit, dental bridges can help you maintain your natural facial contour while also relieving stress in your bite—both of which may result from improper occlusion caused by missing teeth.
Inlays and onlays are designed to restore your teeth back to their original appearance and function without removing an excessive amount of tooth structure. These treatments can frequently help patients avoid the need for a crown. Inlays and onlays are conservative porcelain restorations that can provide a natural looking, beautiful substitute for silver mercury fillings. Our office has performed thousands of successful inlay and onlay procedures.
Excess gum tissue is frequently the cause of a “gummy smile,” and can often make individuals feel self-conscious every time they open their mouths. Laser gum reshaping is an advanced, virtually painless way of renewing the contour of the gums for more symmetrical, balanced results.
A Smile Makeover is accomplished through Smile Design. Smile Design is truly a work of art, coupled with science. The term “Smile Design” applies to the enhancement of a smile using a combination of methods. A patient’s eyes, lip line, coloring, gum tissue contouring, and facial structure are all considered when a new smile is designed for you. With their advanced training in cosmetic dentistry, our doctors can offer you a beautiful new smile, whether you are interested in subtle or dramatic changes.
Instant Orthodontics offers a way to improve teeth alignment and create a whiter, more refreshed-looking smile in only two to three visits. The precise and durable application of porcelain veneers to teeth affected by misalignment or deep stains can dramatically enhance their length, width, color, and shape, ultimately restoring teeth to their natural beauty. Porcelain veneers also resist staining, helping patients maintain a whiter smile for many years to come.
