Welcome back to the Oregon City Family Dentistry blog!

We make it our mission to keep your mouth healthy and your smile looking great all through life. With summer here, you might want to see what we can do to help you boost the appearance of your smile through cosmetic dentistry. That way, you will have a gorgeous grin to share at cookouts, camping trips, and around the pool.

In all seriousness, these sort of procedures can be life-changing.

They greatly improve your look, your oral health, and your confidence. That’s why we would encourage you to come in for a consultation if there is anything that bothers you about your teeth and gums. Keep reading to hear about some of the possibilities, and then be sure to follow up and schedule your consultation.

Teeth Whitening Solutions

Have you ever tried to whiten your teeth with a store-bought DIY kit? If so, you know that they are not very effective and they may actually damage your gums and soft tissues when the gel spills over the one-size fits-all trays.

That is not what happens when you trust the job to your Oregon City dentist. Our professional whitening system will brighten discolored or stained teeth, without harming the health of your mouth.

Around here, a mold is taken of your teeth so that custom trays can be built for you to bleach at home with prescription strength formula. You will have clear directions, adequate materials, and will see great results!

Dental Bonding

Unsure about doing a big makeover? Bonding is a simple cosmetic treatment in which tooth-colored materials are actually bonded to your tooth’s surface in accordance with your needs. Bonding can improve the appearance of any teeth that are chipped, broken, cracked, stained, or have spaces between them. It is easy and affordable too!

Enamel Shaping

This is one treatment that most people don’t know much about. Enamel shaping works by removing or contouring enamel to reimagine the appearance of your teeth. The process, which often is combined with bonding, is usually quick and comfortable, and the results can be seen immediately.

Dental Veneers

This is a great catch-all solution that happens over the course of two visits to OC Family Dentistry. Veneers can be used for filling in the spaces between your teeth and repairing any teeth that are chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, or crooked. Great! But what are they? Veneers are thin but durable porcelain shells that cover the front of teeth to improve your overall look. They are kind of like false fingernails in the way that they work.

Short-Term Orthodontics

Times have changed at the dentist’s office. If you missed out on braces back in your teen years, there are some great options for adult braces that avoid filling your mouth with metal wires and brackets.

If we discover that your teeth are severely crowded, crooked, or do not meet properly, we will refer you to an orthodontist rather than selling you a cosmetic solution that does not meet your real needs. One way or another, we will find you a treatment that will work for you!

You Make The Call!

We hope this post has been helpful. As you can see, at Oregon City Family Dentistry, we have some great cosmetic dentistry solutions available.
