Types of Cosmetic Dentistry
New technology is being developed every day so your dentist can offer you the best and most efficient dental care. One of the areas that have grown exponentially in the last few decades is cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry can repair, cover, and replace teeth and give you a more beautiful smile. Dr. Linda Rak Canepa and her team strive to give all their patients in the Rocky River, OH area a smile that they can’t wait to show off.
- Whitening – Bleaching your smile is one of the easiest, fastest, and most affordable ways to rejuvenate your smile. Many products boast whitening power from chewing gum to at home kits, but none will give you the same results professional whitening can. We offer both in-office treatments that will give you whiter teeth in just one visit, and take-home kits with customized trays so you can still get professional results on a busy schedule.
- Veneers and Crowns – Both veneers and crowns are made of a thin porcelain cap that is bonded to your tooth. Veneers are a great way to hide stubborn stains, cracks, gaps, chips, and misshapen teeth to give you a more cohesive smile. Crowns are better for more extensive damage since they fit over the whole tooth to give you back function and aesthetics.
- Implants – Missing teeth are not only terrible for your oral health, but for the appeal of your smile as well. Implants are placed directly into the bone to help reduce the risk of bone loss and give more stability to the crown. Once the crown is attached, you will have full function of your tooth again.
- Laser Dentistry – A lot of people complain of having a smile that is too gummy. Laser dentistry uses a soft tissue laser to remove the excess gum from around your teeth and make them look more natural without the need of invasive surgery and cutting. It can also be used in applying veneers and crowns.
