What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry focuses on correcting imperfections in your smile’s appearance through mainly aesthetic treatments. Our Wexford, PA dentist, Dr. Gabriel practices this field of dentistry to fix common issues that plague many people’s teeth. With cosmetic dentistry, our team can alter a tooth’s shape, length, and spacing to keep your smile looking consistent throughout. Compared to other fields of dentistry, cosmetic procedures are less invasive.
Our Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
Want a perfect smile without the need for invasive treatments? If so, our office provides porcelain veneers customized to fit over your teeth’s surface. These thin shells are used to cover a variety of minor cosmetic issues including severely discolored, chipped, broken, and uneven teeth. The result is a beautiful smile resistant to staining.
Inlays & Onlays
A cavity that’s too large for fillings but too small for a dental crown can be solved with custom inlays and onlays. These composite restorations can be altered by Dr. Gabriel to perfectly match the color, shape, and size of your teeth as well as compliment your bite’s alignment. Our team of dental professionals recommends inlays and onlays for their ease and versatility.
Dr. Gabriel offers Invisalign therapy as an alternative to traditional metal braces. These custom-made, clear aligners work by gradually shifting your teeth into place. In addition to being transparent, Invisalign trays can also straighten your teeth in just half the time of braces. This treatment is perfect for adults who want a non-intrusive solution to crooked teeth.
Your gums are just important as your teeth when it comes to your oral health. If you’re suffering from receding or excess soft tissue, Dr. Gabriel offers gum procedures including soft tissue grafting and crown lengthening to fix your teeth’s appearance. Our team will be able to recommend either of these treatments based on your smile’s needs.
Tooth-Colored Fillings & Bonding
We recommend tooth-colored fillings and bonding not just for cavities, but if you have cracked or damaged teeth as well. Dr. Gabriel provides great restorative options to restore your teeth and repair spots with imperfections. These modern solutions are customized to blend with your beautiful smile and are delicate enough that you won’t notice them at all.
It’s natural for your teeth to become discolored over time. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean you should have to like it. Dr. Gabriel and our team can easily improve the color of your teeth by several shades through professional teeth whitening. On top of being convenient and non-invasive, teeth whitening can be done in a single appointment.
The Cosmetic Dentistry Experience
Our cosmetic procedures are designed to be straightforward. Most patients find comfort and convenience in knowing these treatments are non-invasive compared to more drastic dental procedures. You can expect to receive quality dental care that’s simple and painless during your visit. Dr. Gabriel will give you his complete attention and develop a treatment plan customized works for you while also addressing the goals for your smile.
