We can transform anyone's smile into the beautiful bright smile that they have always dreamed about. There are several choices available for cosmetic dental work and Dr. Sheets will be able to help you determine which one will work the best in transforming your smile. Below is a list of Cosmetic Procedures offered in our practice. Please select a procedure to learn more.
Zoom In-Office Whitening
The Zoom2! In-Office Whitening System is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. It's safe, effective and very fast. In just over an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. Whitening is ideal for anyone looking for immediate results. The convenience of Zoom2! compared to days of wearing trays and gradual whitening makes it the perfect choice for busy individuals.
For a more natural progression of whitening, Dr. Sheets may recommend a professional-grade gel and tray whitening system. Dr. Sheets’ customized whitening trays are molded to fit your mouth perfectly, so that the whitening solution can fill in the area around and between each tooth. The Nightwhite and Daywhite whitening gel is professional strength so you will be able to whiten rather quickly, seeing results after two-to-three applications.
Porcelain Veneers can change the shape, color, length, or width of your teeth. Veneers are a thin, semi-translucent laminate permanently bonded to your teeth. While they are not suitable for every patient, veneers are the most aesthetic alternative for a variety of dental conditions involving the front teeth, including diastemas (spaces between teeth), broken or chipped teeth, unsightly, stained, or washed-out fillings, permanently stained or discolored teeth that can't be bleached, or crooked teeth.
Cosmetic tooth bonding can work wonders for your smile. Tooth bonding can correct a tooth gap, cover spots, chips, and discolorations, repair fractures, and even re-shape teeth. It is also great for an instant repair of a broken front tooth.
The tooth bonding procedure involves roughening the surface of the tooth, applying an adhesive, and eventually shaping a putty-like resin into the desired shape. After the material has hardened Dr. Sheets will then further trim and shape it and polish it to make it match the rest of your mouth's structure.
One of the many advantages of bonding is that it usually takes only one visit to complete.
Many people have teeth that look too "short" due to the relationship between their teeth and gums. This creates a "gummy" smile.
Gum contouring removes some of the tissue to eliminate a “gummy” smile. Gum Contouring involves trimming away excess gum tissue with a special laser which also seals blood vessels, keeping bleeding at a minimum. After the procedure takes place, the gum is left to heal and the results are most often immediate. In some cases, where more gum tissue is removed the healing process may take longer.
Ultimately this procedure creates a consistent even gum line that results in a better looking smile.
Partial Dentures & Repairs
An important step in maintaining a healthy smile is to replace missing teeth. When teeth are missing, the remaining ones can change position, drift into the surrounding space, and possibly damage tissue in the mouth. In addition, it may be difficult to clean thoroughly between mispositioned teeth. As a result, you run the risk of tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease, which can lead to the loss of additional teeth.
A removable partial denture fills in the space created by missing teeth and fills out your smile. A denture helps you to properly chew food and may improve speech and prevent a sagging face by providing support for lips and cheeks. Thanks to Dr. Sheets you will now be able to chew more easily, speak with clarity and finally smile with confidence.
Cracked Tooth Syndrome
Unlike teeth with obvious fractures, teeth with cracked tooth syndrome usually have fractures that are too small to be seen on X-rays. Sometimes the fracture is below the gum line, making it even more difficult to identify. If you are experiencing pain in a tooth when you bite or chew, or sensitivity to cold temperatures, or discomfort which may or may not be consistent, you may be experiencing cracked tooth syndrome. After a thorough examination and detection, Dr. Sheets will recommend treatment depending on the location, direction, and extent of the crack.
