Genetics plays a big part in whether patients will have a naturally beautiful smile. The color of the tooth enamel and the alignment of the dental arch are often linked to family history. However, this doesn’t mean that patients with imperfect teeth cannot attain the smile of their dreams. Using cosmetic dentistry, one of the best Philadelphia area practices can provide patients with a myriad of cosmetic services to improve the function and beauty of their smiles. Dr. A and the team at Innovative Dental By Dr. A are committed to helping patients achieve the smile of their dreams!
Several cosmetic dentistry procedures are available through Innovative Dental By Dr. A for Philadelphia area patients, including:
When tooth loss occurs, dental implants are the best solution in many instances. They are stand-alone titanium metal posts surgically placed into the jawbone for strength and stability. A dental crown is placed on top to act as a false tooth and restore the appearance and function of the smile.
Another solution to tooth loss is the dental bridge. This is a porcelain restoration that uses the surrounding teeth for support. This permanent option is more economical than dental implants.
Porcelain crowns are used for protection, restoration, and for cosmetic benefits. They are custom-made for patients and bonded over natural teeth.
Dr. A offers fast in-office whitening or convenient take-home trays.
Straightening the teeth has both cosmetic and health benefits. Dr. A provides alternatives to traditional braces such as Six Month Smiles and Invisalign.
Bonding is a wonderful way to cover cosmetic flaws in the smile, and is a more affordable, faster alternative to porcelain veneers. This material is applied to the natural teeth, shaped, hardened, and polished for a beautiful effect.
Using tooth-colored fillings for dental decay is the best way to treat cavities without spoiling the beauty of the smile.
Addressing a “gummy smile” or excess gum tissue can be done with a process called gum recontouring. This can make a dramatic change in an imperfect smile.
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are fabricated in a dental laboratory and bonded over the front of teeth. These are purely cosmetic in nature and do not improve the function of the natural teeth, though they are strong and beautiful.
