Cosmetic Dentistry

What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

If dentistry is a science, then cosmetic dentistry is an art.

Cosmetic dentistry is more than just the health of your teeth; it also takes into account the aesthetic nature of your smile. All the procedures and products that we use for cosmetic dentistry have the combined goal of strengthening the structure and integrity of your teeth with the visual beauty of a dazzling smile. The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to improve your confidence and personal levels of happiness with your appearance.

How Will Cosmetic Dentistry Improve My Smile?

If you think your teeth could benefit by being a few shades whiter, teeth whitening is a wonderful and quick improvement. When you look at your smile in the mirror and notice chipped teeth that you find yourself hiding, or unevenly spaced or sized teeth – these are issues that cosmetic dentistry can fix. Most people can benefit from cosmetic dentistry, whether the treatments are simple or complex.

What Are Examples of Cosmetic Dentistry?

Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening is a non-invasive procedure that creates a bright and polished smile. 

This is one of the most popular dental treatments due to how it can improve your smile. Sometimes our patients can benefit from removing the buildup of stains and discoloration that happens naturally with age. 

This is not a one-time-only procedure; often, it needs to be repeated to maintain a white smile. If you are considering getting a smile makeover in Galloway, OH, our dentist can walk you through the process of removing stains and if you are a candidate for this procedure.

Porcelain Veneers

This is a permanent procedure that uses wafer-thin porcelain shells to cover or reshape your smile to create a classic look. Galloway, OH dental specialists offer a variety of dental veneers that you can pick from. 

Dental Implants

Permanently replace missing or decayed teeth, dental implants 

Dental implants require a surgical procedure that creates stable anchors for a new permanent tooth replacement. Your Galloway Smiles dentist, Dr. Halderman, can determine if you are a good candidate for this dental procedure. 

Dental Crowns

Crowns are a dental “cap” that fix over your tooth. Depending on the needs of your teeth, you may need the extra support and stability that a crown can provide. 

Dental crowns are custom fabricated to fit your smile needs. From fixing broken to severely damaged teeth to badly stained teeth to holding together a bridge, crowns fix a variety of dental needs. 

At Galloway Smiles, our dental professionals will carry out a comprehensive evaluation and suggest the perfect dental crown for you.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Right for Me?

Cosmetic dentistry applies to anyone who feels like their smile could be improved. From professional polishing and whitening to fixing gaps in teeth, the possibilities are vast. 

Some common concerns people seek treatment for range from:

  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Missing teeth or large gaps
  • Chipped and broken teeth

Can I Get Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a great option to give yourself the gift of a smile makeover. During your initial assessment, Dr. Halderman will determine whether you have ongoing decay or gum disease. It’s essential to build your new smile on the foundation of healthy gums and teeth. If you need assistance getting there, we can help.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Out of My Budget?

This is an important concern and one our patients often bring up. Cosmetic dental procedures vary from small to large and can fit your budget. The final cost is based on how much dental work is needed. Here at Galloway Smiles, we work with you from the beginning to make sure your costs are clear before we get started.

When possible, we offer solutions at different price levels and can sometimes stagger your treatment over time so that you can spread out your out-of-pocket costs. It’s our goal that whether your new smile is a small or large project you feel you got what you paid for and that it was money well spent.

How Does the Process Look Like?

If your issue is relatively simple, our dental team will tailor a smile plan at your first appointment with us. If your smile plan is more complex, we’ll do equally detailed planning that may span a few visits.

First and foremost, we spend time asking you questions that allow us to understand all your concerns and the changes you’d like to make. We talk about what’s possible and what kind of time frame and budget you can expect. Much like building an addition to a house, we start with the end in mind. There’s a design part and then a building part.

If you decide you’re interested, we take several photos of your teeth and make a few impressions. We then use these to come up with a few different options to meet the goals you’ve told us are important to you. If any specialists will be involved, you’ll meet with them, and we’ll complete your plan. Once we’re all on the same page, we start the building part of treatment, and we’re with you the entire process to ensure great results.

How Long Will My New Smile Last?

Our goal is always to make your dental work last as long as possible. Today’s dental materials are durable and natural-looking, and when they’re properly maintained, they can last a long time. You can always expect some amount of upkeep; for example, it might be essential to wear a mouth guard or a retainer to protect your investment in your smile. By seeing you every six months, we’ll do our best to find any problems early on and make sure things are functioning well.

How Do I Get Started?

The first step towards the smile you’ve always wanted is to call our dental office—we love talking teeth, so you can expect to leave with all your questions answered and a really clear sense of what can be done to get you smiling with confidence.   

Cosmetic dentistry can help you achieve a dazzling and natural-looking smile that will last.
