In addition to offering an array of general and restorative dental services, our practice is dedicated to improving our patients’ quality of life and appearance through cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Dovgan is experienced with performing cosmetic treatments that enhance one’s smile without negatively affecting oral function. Our most popular cosmetic services include professional teeth whitening, tooth-colored fillings, cosmetic bonding, and porcelain veneer placement.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Store bought whitening products cannot stand up to the effectiveness of a professional teeth whitening treatment. Using prescription bleaching solution and intense LED lighting (to deepen and accelerate the stain removing process), an in-office whitening treatment can brighten one’s smile about eight to ten shades, on average. After treatment, our patients enjoy an instantly brighter, whiter smile with little to no tooth sensitivity. For patients who want to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own home, we also offer custom at-home whitening kits. Professional whitening is more than effective; it is safe.
Tooth-colored Fillings and Cosmetic Bonding
Traditional fillings were made from a metal compound called amalgam. While this compound effectively protected damaged tooth structure from cavity-causing bacteria, it was dark and unnatural looking. As a remedy to the conspicuous nature of amalgam, our dentist offers tooth-colored (white) fillings. White fillings are made from a compound of durable plastic mixed with glass called composite resin. This compound can be tinted to match natural tooth structure. Composite resin allows our patients to enjoy discreet and natural looking dental work that will not be detectable to others.
Composite resin is also used for cosmetic bonding treatments. This treatment method is used to conceal imperfections on teeth such as chips, cracks, and stains. Applied to the teeth in liquid form and hardened with a curing light, composite resin can produce a more attractive looking smile.
Porcelain veneers are cosmetic enhancements that are used to produce a complete smile makeover. These wafer thin, handcrafted pieces of porcelain are cemented over the outer surfaces of teeth. Tooth shaped and custom made, veneers produce a stunning yet natural looking smile by concealing flaws like crooked and misshapen teeth along with stains, chips, and cracks. Veneers are also referred to as instant orthodontics. This is because after receiving veneers, patients leaving our practice enjoy an instantly straight, bright, and beautiful smile.
With cosmetic dentistry, there is no smile that cannot be improved. We strive to help our patients look and feel their best. To reserve a smile makeover consultation with Dr. Dovgan, call our friendly team today.
