Tired of hiding your smile behind your hands because of flaws in your teeth? Our Oregon City, Ore., dental staff has seen what stains, chips, and cracks can do to an otherwise beautiful smile and healthy mouth, which is why we offer a variety of solutions that can let you smile with confidence again.
Cosmetic dentistry is a simple way to boost your confidence and even improve your overall oral health. That’s right, people often assume that cosmetic dentistry is something done entirely out of vanity, but that could not be further from the truth. Patients with worn enamel, chips, cracks, breaks, or even misshapen teeth all face an increased risk of future oral health problems like decay and gum disease. Those same patients also all could improve their situation by having natural-looking cosmetic dentistry solutions like bonding, veneers, or crowns.
Drs. Annalisa and Kyle Smith can use their training and application skills to help you correct:
● Gaps in your smile
● Mildly crooked teeth
● Heavy stains, including those caused by medicines
● Chips, cracks, and breaks in your teeth
● Misshapen teeth
● Missing teeth
Our office uses only the latest methods, and we will never jump into a treatment without first explaining every step of the process. Drs. Smith have studied everything from teeth-whitening to dental implants.
We use a special teeth-whitening treatment that can improve the brightness of your smile by up to eight shades in just a few weeks. The at-home trays are custom-made for every patient and designed to reach every corner of your teeth. The bleaching gel works quickly and is long-lasting. We have seen our teeth-whitening treatments turn a mouth of dingy, unhealthy-looking teeth into a Hollywood smile!
Bonds and Veneers
If you have hairline cracks, chips, or even breaks in your teeth, our office can place durable dental bonds or porcelain veneers to hide those flaws and offer better protection to your tooth. Dental bonds are used to fill chips or cracks in the teeth to prevent future decay or damage. When the enamel of your tooth breaks, the dentin is then exposed to harmful acids and bacteria that can cause decay and even the possibility of a root canal down the road. The bonds seal up the chips and cracks and naturally blend in with your smile!
Porcelain veneers are much stronger than dental bonds and will not stain or fade. To place veneers, we conservatively remove a portion of your enamel and then bond the veneer to your tooth. Patients with weak or eroded enamel are great candidates for veneers because the porcelain will actually strengthen the tooth and decrease the risk of further damage or even breakage.
One area in which dentistry has expanded in the last few years is dental implants. Implants are often the runaway favorite when it comes to replacing missing teeth or stabilizing arches of dentures, and for good reason. The implants almost mimic the strength of your natural teeth and can last decades, if not forever, when cared for properly. Studies also have shown that dental implants can actually add 10 years to your life compared with having removable, non-implant-retained dentures.
At Oregon City Family Dentistry, Dr. Annalisa has received the proper training to place and restore dentals implants. Patients can receive their dental implant treatment all under one roof and are not asked to travel across town to various dental offices. After only a few visits with us, you can walk out of our office with permanent, natural-looking teeth and bid good riddance to your floppy removable dentures. Our dental-implant-retained dentures allow you to speak clearly and eat the food you love again. Plus, you’ll look fantastic!
