Cosmetic Dentistry Services
We believe beautiful smiles are built on a healthy foundation. When you visit our practice, we’ll begin by assessing the health of your teeth and gums to ensure the success and durability of any cosmetic treatments we may recommend. All cosmetic treatments offered at our practice are chosen based upon our experience as well as their success in many scientific studies.
Straighten your smile without metal braces. Invisalign is the discreet, comfortable, and truly effective way to correct misaligned teeth without the pain, hassle, and headaches of traditional orthodontics.
White fillings don’t just look better, they’re better for your teeth, too! Composite and porcelain tend to be smaller than silver mercury-amalgam fillings and actually make your teeth stronger, too.
Restore the shape, function, and appearance of your tooth with a natural tooth-colored porcelain crown. They’re custom made to look just like your natural teeth and allow you to eat and smile with confidence.
One of the most flexible cosmetic treatments available, porcelain veneers fix chips, cracks, deeply set stains, and even small gaps between teeth. Transform your entire smile with the help of porcelain veneers.
A brighter smile can make you look and feel years younger. We offer custom take-home whitening trays and powerful in-office ZOOM™ whitening. Our cosmetic dentist will help you find the right whitening option for you.
Sedation Dentistry FAQs
Do I need sedation for tooth extraction?
Typically, your dentist will administer local anesthesia and sedation before a tooth extraction so you are pain-free during the procedure and remain relaxed.
Does sedation dentistry cost more?
There is a cost associated with sedation dentistry that patients would not have to pay for procedures that don’t require sedation. Generally, sedation is charged according to the amount of time you are sedated.
How does sedation dentistry work?
There are different types of sedation dentistry available that work in different ways. Your dentist may prescribe an oral sedative, which you can take before your procedure. Nitrous oxide is also an option, which you will breathe in before your procedure. After the medication has taken effect, you will feel relaxed, drowsy, and content.
Is dental IV sedation safe?
Dental IV sedation is safe. For some patients, including those with sleep apnea or who are obese, IV sedation may not be recommended.
Is dental sedation safe?
Dental sedation is safe, but it’s important to choose an experienced, trustworthy dentist for your sedation procedure.
What are the side effects of oral sedation?
Some common side effects of oral sedation include dizziness, dry mouth, nausea, or headaches. Not all patients will experience these side effects.
What can I expect after sedation dentistry?
After a sedation dentistry procedure, you can expect to feel drowsy and should have someone drive you home. It’s best to avoid drinking alcohol, a strenuous activity like exercise, and driving or operating machinery for at least 24 hours.
What should I do before dental sedation?
Before your dental sedation, you should avoid eating or drinking for about 6-8 hours, arrange for someone to drive you home after the procedure, and avoid taking medication unless your dentist has approved it.
Why no food or drink before IV sedation?
IV sedation stops your body’s reflexes temporarily. This causes a risk of vomiting if your stomach contains food or drink, so it’s important to avoid eating or drinking for several hours ahead of your procedure
Will I feel any pain with dental sedation?
IV sedation allows you to feel no pain during your dental procedure.
