They say the eyes are the windows to the soul, but the smile is what a first impression is typically based upon. This is why it is essential that the teeth look beautiful. This can help patients have confidence in their appearance and enjoy better self-esteem. Dr. Carl McMillan of the Cary and Cornelius Holistic Dental Centers understands the importance of a quality smile and therefore, provide their patients with cosmetic dentistry solutions.
Cosmetic dentistry is the field of dentistry that has a specific focus on the aesthetics of the smile. Aesthetics refers to the appearance of the teeth, gums, and the smile as a whole. Dr. Carl McMillan believes that when patients have a smile they love, they will display confidence in both their personal and professional worlds.
Cosmetic dentistry typically includes elective procedures that are done specifically to improve the way they the smile looks and not necessarily improve health. They may include treatments such as tooth-colored fillings, composite resin bonding, porcelain veneers, dental bridges, dental implants, and teeth whitening.
Each of these procedures has a place in cosmetic dentistry, and patients interested in rejuvenating the appearance of their smile will often wonder which one is best for them. Some patients may benefit from just one treatment while others may want to consider a series of services to achieve dramatic results. This can be determined during a consultation appointment with Dr. Carl McMillan and patients can have an evaluation, which allows them to make the choices necessary for enhancing their smiles.
Procedures available in our practice include:
- Composite resin fillings – fillings for cavities that are more aesthetic and safer than traditional silver amalgam fillings
- Teeth whitening – take-home kits are available at our facility
- Veneers – porcelain facings that are custom-made and bonded onto the front of teeth to cover imperfections
- Composite resin bonding – dental bonding used to repair areas of imperfection faster than veneers
- Dental implants – replacements for missing teeth that can last a lifetime
- Dental bridges – tooth replacement options that are more permanent than dentures but less expensive than dental implants
