You want to make a good first impression, and if your smile is dull or damaged, that can be next to impossible. The minute you flash your smile, people notice. Luckily, Dr. Neslund of Carlisle Family & Cosmetic Dentistry provides smile makeovers using the most modern cosmetic dentistry techniques and his highly skilled hand.
With porcelain veneers, Dr. Neslund can hide all of your smile imperfections at once, including gaps, chips, cracks, permanent discoloration, and even slightly rotated teeth. These problems can be covered with durable, ceramic sheaths known as veneers. Each veneer is custom-made to your needs, including the color, shape, and size. In order to place your veneers, a small amount of tooth enamel is removed so that they look flush. With proper care, there’s no reason they shouldn’t last between 10 and 15 years.
Would you prefer to keep as much of your tooth enamel as possible? Lumineers are a fair alternative to traditional porcelain veneers because they do not require as much tooth enamel to place. In most cases, they require no removal whatsoever, making them fully reversible if you decide to remove them. Each veneer averages about 0.5 mm thick, despite the fact that they use the same porcelain material to cover teeth. Like traditional veneers, they are bonded to teeth and custom-made to your exact needs.
Without materials that effectively blend in with your existing tooth enamel, we wouldn’t be able to give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of having. Our dental office utilizes all-ceramic materials when performing cosmetic dentistry, whether it’s with composite resin via direct bonding or porcelain via veneers. Not only do these materials blend in perfectly with your smile, but their biocompatible attributes ensure that they integrate properly with your current oral structures.
Cosmetic dental bonding provides an excellent cosmetic dentistry fix for those small dental issues, such as a chip or a gap. If you've only got one or two minor issues with your front teeth and would like a more conservative option than porcelain veneers, cosmetic dental bonding is what you're looking for. Using tooth-colored composite resin, Dr. Neslund can reshape problem areas, sculpting your smile for a shapelier appearance. You might want to pair cosmetic dental bonding with teeth whitening for a complete smile makeover that really lets you shine.
The composite resin used for cosmetic dental bonding can also be used to provide you with tooth-colored fillings. Tooth-colored fillings are part of our commitment to cosmetic dentistry, ensuring that your smile looks great even in the face of dental decay and cavities.
Whether you need to whiten your smile in time for an upcoming event or while you’re on the road, our dental office can cater to both types of patients! Our teeth whitening treatments can remove stubborn stains on top of and inside tooth enamel, permeating through your tooth to reach stains that wouldn’t otherwise be reachable. Our take-home whitening solutions allow you to whiten teeth for 30 minutes a day over multiple weeks.
When you smile, do you feel like you see more gum tissue than you do teeth? Are your teeth smaller than what you’d like them to be? Gum recontouring works to remove excess gum tissue and show more of your natural tooth enamel in the process. The procedure only takes a single appointment to complete and is incredibly effective, just make sure to follow our dental office’s aftercare instructions to avoid potential discomfort.
Our comprehensive menu of cosmetic dentistry services includes teeth whitening and porcelain veneers. We also offer CEREC one-visit porcelain crowns, inlays, and onlays. Dr. Neslund can create a complete smile makeover plan for you, combining any of these cosmetic dentistry procedures and transforming your smile from damaged to dazzling.
Have you ever wondered how a cosmetic dental makeover could improve your life? If you don't feel confident in your smile, it can seriously diminish your ability to enjoy daily activities. You won't feel much like showing off your smile in pictures, and other people won't get to enjoy seeing your happy side. A more attractive smile can help you with relationships, impress prospective employers, or even land that big promotion. People are attracted to confidence -- gain more smile confidence with cosmetic dentistry care from our dental office.
Are your teeth moderately crooked, gapped or otherwise misaligned? Do you want to avoid traditional metal braces at all costs? Invisalign treatment uses a series of clear aligners custom-made to straighten your teeth. Each pair of aligners applies gentle pressure to your teeth, pushing them into a straighter position, removing gaps in even less time compared to metal braces. Plus, each pair is removable, so you don’t need to change your current habits just to straighten teeth.
