Smiles connect us. Communicate. Bring joy. But if we hide our teeth because we are embarrassed by some flaw or damage, we can’t share those life-bringing smiles at all! That’s why we decided to offer our patients the option of cosmetic dentistry. And really, our cosmetic services aren’t just about appearance at all. Like every other service we offer at Covington Dental, our cosmetic services also keep an eye on your health, offering strength and balance as well as beauty.
If you feel uncomfortable about any aspect of your smile, please give us a call.
We’d love to talk to you and show you what we can do.
Porcelain veneers! They are the wonderful tool dentists have been using for years to give stars and celebrities their gorgeous, flawless smiles – and now a smile like that can be yours too! Okay, that might sound a little like hype, but it is actually the truth. Veneers are thin shells of beautifully crafted porcelain that cover the front of broken, discolored, chipped, crooked, or gaped teeth to create a personalized, perfected smile. We offer both traditional porcelain veneers and minimal-prep veneers. Minimal prep veneers are perfect for people who aren’t sure they want the change to be permanent, since these little gems can be removed and reversed. We will help you decide which type of veneer is best for you depending on your case.
“Snaggle tooth.” “Vampire mouth.” Did you have to suffer through any name calling about the shape or size of your teeth? Are you tired of hiding your smile so no one sees the unevenness behind your hand? We have a quick and simple procedure that might just give you a brand new sense of confidence – Tooth recontouring. While tooth recontouring is a simple procedure, it can make a dramatic difference in your smile. All it requires is an artistic touch to sculpt your canines to perfection, create symmetry between your teeth, and smooth away flaws. Ask us about it today!
If too much gum tissue covers your tooth, either to allow us to place a restoration or to allow your pearly whites to show to their full advantage, we can gently sculpt your gum line with our ameliorative diode laser. Ameliorative means that it heals as it works so no stitches are required. No cutting either!
You’d be amazed what a difference whitening your teeth can make in your appearance. It can give you an instantly brighter, friendlier look; take years off your face; and create the perfect accessory to any outfit…even when you aren’t wearing one!
We offer in-office whitening Ultradent Boost, to get your teeth up to eight shades whiter in about an hour. Just sit back, listen to music while you get your glow on. Or if you prefer to whiten on your own time at your own pace, we also offer prescription-strength GoWhitening gel and custom made trays so you can freshen up any time, any place.
If your flaws are smaller, or you need a quick fix, composite bonding may be just the cosmetic solution you have been looking for. Our bonding material is a blend of resin and glass for a completely customizable, personal look. Unlike more advanced procedures like porcelain veneers, cosmetic bonding is custom colored and applied right here in our office instead of being created in a lab. To get the most natural appearance requires a truly artistic touch – aren’t you lucky you chose Covington Dental as your cosmetic practice?
