Repairing an imperfect smile is a common request of patients in the Raleigh area who visit a cosmetic dentist. Dr. Carl McMillan and the team of Cary and Cornelius Holistic Dental Centers believe in providing a wide selection of aesthetic services to ensure patients feel great about the appearance of their smiles, and therefore, enjoy better self-confidence. Below are just a few of the more common aesthetic treatments available through our practice for new and existing patients:
Repairing a smile after tooth loss can be done with the use of a dental implant. Our holistic dental practice offers zirconium ceramic implants, which are more aesthetic and biocompatible with the body. These posts are placed into the jawbone and restored according to the patient’s requirements.
Patients who do not want to use removable partial dentures may consider the advantages of placing dental bridges. These ceramic restorations use adjacent teeth for support and can help repair the function and appearance of the smile after tooth loss.
Covering imperfections of the smile can be accomplished with the use of porcelain veneers. Using ceramic restorations that are custom made, these shells of ceramic are cemented over the front of teeth to change their appearance. They are a fast, affordable, and effective way of addressing aesthetic issues that may make a patient feel self-conscious, such as breakage, misalignment, or gaps between teeth.
Dental crowns are ceramic “caps” that are custom-made and bonded over the entire tooth for protection and repair.
Brightening the smile with bleaching agents that are safe and holistic is a great way for individuals in the Raleigh area to improve the appearance of their smiles. This may be the first step for patients who are considering a full smile makeover.
When quick repairs are necessary, many patients may benefit from composite resin bonding. This is also a great alternative to porcelain veneers for repairing teeth and covering imperfections.
At the Cary and Cornelius Holistic Dental Centers, we also offer oral conscious sedation for patients who are undergoing extensive dental work, or for those who are faced with extreme dental fears and anxieties that may keep them from getting the dental care they need for a healthy smile!
