Cosmetic Dentisty

 

A beautiful smile is a sign of health and happiness, and one of the most important communication tools you have. Our smiles are the first thing that makes an impression on people we meet. When you smile, you not only connect with those around you, you make yourself feel good, too. That stunning, memorable smile is now easily within your reach! Dr. Christensen will help you identify your cosmetic dental goals and discuss your options with you. We offer a wide variety of cosmetic and restorative procedures to provide you with the healthy, natural looking, and dazzling smile of your dreams!

Tooth colored fillings:

Gone are the days when cavities and other tooth ailments could only be treated with unsightly metal fillings that weaken teeth. Now, modern, tooth-colored fillings made of durable resin can be bonded to your teeth for a stronger, more durable, and more natural-looking effect that are virtually undetectable.

Porcelain Crowns:

Also known as “caps”, these slide over prepared teeth to hide misshapen, misalignment, cracks, or other imperfections. Crowns decrease physical discomfort in teeth, look completely natural, and offer extra support to teeth that are weak or damaged. They improve the overall appearance of your smile and make your teeth more durable.

Porcelain Veneers:

An alternative to crowns, veneers can perfect your smile by correcting flaws and misalignment. Porcelain veneers are made of thin, customized material designed to look incredibly natural. They are bonded to the front of teeth, giving them a straight, uniform appearance.

Whitening:

We offer in-office teeth whitening to restore teeth to dazzling perfection! In-office whitening procedures allow for the use of stronger whitening agents. We use the most advanced whitening technology to give you the most dramatic results in very little time.

Envision A Smile:

Computer imaging is an exciting new tool! Photographs of your smile are digitally enhanced, giving you a preview of what your smile could look like after having a cosmetic procedure done. Being able to see how your results can look can help you select the procedures that are right for you.

Implants:

A dental implant is designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. You regain the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that your teeth appear natural. Often the result is not only an enhanced smile but also a more youthful appearance, since missing teeth cause the face to “collapse”, making you look older. A dental implant is a tiny surgical grade titanium post that is inserted directly into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for the artificial teeth. Implants are an excellent solution to missing individual teeth. Because they don’t require the cutting down of neighboring teeth – as bridges do – dental implants allow for maximum bone preservation in the areas surrounding the implant sites.

Smile Makeover:

Improving the look of your teeth and gums creates a healthier, more youthful appearance. After a full examination of your overall dental health, the appearance of your smile, your bite alignment, and taking into consideration your desired outcome, Dr. Christensen will recommend procedures customized to work together just for you, correcting any number of problems you may have with your smile.

Orthodontics:

Orthodontics are not only important to a great smile and improved self-confidence, but to better dental health. Crooked, misaligned teeth are harder to keep clean and are at risk for decay and periodontal disease, as well as detracting from one’s appearance. They can also cause extra stress on the chewing muscles that can lead to headaches, TMJ syndrome, and neck, shoulder and back pain. The benefits of orthodontic treatment include a healthier mouth, a more pleasing appearance, and teeth that are more likely to last a lifetime!

Depending on your age, your needs, and your individual goals, we provide a range of orthodontic options to choose from. Each treatment plan is catered to the individual needs of each patient.

Braces:

The American Dental Association recommends that an orthodontic evaluation is performed on children by age 7 to determine if orthodontic treatment is required and to advise the best time for patients to be treated. The first permanent molars and incisors have usually come in by age 7, and crossbites, crowding, and other problems can be evaluated. When treatment is begun early, incoming permanent teeth can be guided into proper placement. Early treatment can also regulate the width of the upper and lower arches, gain space for permanent teeth, and simplify later treatment.

Invisalign:

Invisalign is an innovative treatment using clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth. A clear, nearly undetectable plastic mold is worn at all times, taking it out to eat, brush, and floss. Using computer imaging, a series of custom aligners are created that slowly move your teeth. You are given multiple aligners at a time, and change to the next aligner in the series about every two weeks. Treatment time can be comparable to that of traditional braces. Depending on your needs, treatment time can range from 6 months to 20 months to achieve a brilliant, straight smile. Click on the Invisalign link on our homepage to find out more!
