Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

When most people think of a dentist, they think of a medical professional who specializes in oral health. And Dr. Patel certainly does have general dentistry expertise. But she blends that knowledge of tooth and mouth health with cosmetic dentistry — dental care that aims to deliver your brightest, straightest, most even smile. 

With cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Patel helps her patients resolve a wide range of cosmetic issues, including:

  • Yellowed or otherwise discolored teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Uneven teeth

If there’s something about your smile that bothers you, don’t hesitate to talk to Dr. Patel about it. She can explain all of your options for correcting the issue. Then, together, you can choose the right treatment to help you get your ideal smile. 

What does cosmetic dentistry include?

It depends on the changes you want to make to your smile. Some of the cosmetic dentistry treatments Dr. Patel offers are:

Teeth whitening

With Philips Zoom! teeth whitening, Dr. Patel can whiten your smile by up to eight shades in a single appointment. She also offers take-home Zoom! whitening options. 

Dental crowns

If you have a tooth that’s badly damaged, a crown doesn’t just protect it. It also restores the tooth’s shape and size — and your smile. 

Porcelain veneers

Veneers are thin shells that Dr. Patel bonds to the front of your teeth, instantly transforming their appearance. This is ideal for badly stained, cracked, uneven, or gapped teeth. 

Bridges

If you’re missing one or more teeth, Dr. Patel can fit you with a bridge to secure replacement teeth in your mouth without the need for surgery. 

Invisalign

You don’t need traditional braces to get straight teeth. With Invisalign®, you can straighten your smile with virtually invisible clear plastic aligners. 

How long does cosmetic dentistry take?

It depends on the treatments you choose. Teeth whitening can take only a single appointment while straightening your teeth with Invisalign can take up to 18 months. Dr. Patel talks with you about the treatments that interest you so you know exactly what to expect.
