Your teeth are essential, and their health and strength go a long way toward making sure you have a beautiful smile. A dull smile with stained, missing, or chipped teeth can affect your appearance and lower your self-confidence. If left untreated, these issues can also affect your health.
Lighthouse Dental offers various cosmetic dentistry services to help restore your smile to a natural-looking brilliance and restore your confidence.
Invisalign® Invisible Braces
An Invisalign Elite provider, Dr. Kevin Mistry can help patients obtain a straight and beautiful smile without the need for traditional metal orthodontics. Invisalign does away with metal wires and brackets and instead uses a series of custom-made plastic trays to correct your teeth.
With Invisalign, you will wear a set of trays for two weeks before swapping them out for the next in a series. By the time you finish the entire series, your teeth will be straight without a bit of metal ever touching your teeth. Practically invisible, you can wear your Invisalign without anyone knowing they are there.
Teeth can become stained from:
- Tobacco use
- Carbonated drinks
- Coffee or tea
At Lighthouse Dental, we offer many teeth whitening services to correct discoloration and staining. Our hygienists can help you choose the best one for your requirements to get your smile back to a luminous shine.
Porcelain veneers are a procedure performed by a cosmetic dentist. Custom veneers, many layers of thin porcelain sheets, can correct many issues, including:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Minor alignment issues
Veneers can provide a healthy and natural-looking smile without the need for major reconstruction. They are also durable and help to protect the teeth beneath them, ensuring your smile stays healthy for years to come.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are a more advanced restoration process that involves creating a porcelain cap secured over a portion of a tooth at the gumline. The crown becomes the new outer surface of a tooth, concealing broken or decayed teeth. This procedure serves to strengthen and improve your teeth’s appearance while preventing further damage to the tooth below.
For patients with missing teeth, we can provide bridges to fill gaps securely, restoring functionality to your bite and improving your smile’s look. Bridges use a row of porcelain artificial teeth that secure to surrounding teeth to provide strength and stability to their installation.
