Cosmetic Dentistry in Phoenix
24th Street Dental Biltmore
If you’re unhappy with the way your smile looks right now, you’ve landed in the perfect spot! Patients frequently desire to alter or correct cosmetic flaws they find unattractive. 24th Street Dental Biltmore offer a range of treatments, ranging from minor adjustments to extensive repairs, that can enhance your smile. These procedures are effective in dealing with issues like chipped, misshapen, discolored, or even absent teeth. Apart from enhancing the appearance of your smile, these procedures often resolve other oral health problems, such as an irregular bite.
We provide resin composite fillings as an alternative to amalgam fillings. These fillings are made from a mixture of tooth-colored plastic and glass and are used to restore decayed teeth. During the procedure, Dr. Donnelly, at 24th Street Dental Biltmore, applies the composite material in layers and uses a curing light to harden it at intervals. The filling is then polished to prevent staining and premature wearing. Amalgam fillings, on the other hand, are more noticeable as they are made from silver and other metals. Additionally, we also offer cosmetic bonding, which is a more affordable alternative to veneers. Dental bondings are similar to composite fillings as both involve shaping, curing, and polishing the resin composite material.
Porcelain veneers are a dental solution for improving the appearance of your front teeth. These thin shells can address a variety of issues such as stained, misaligned, worn down, chipped, or abnormally shaped teeth. Veneers can even be used to fill gaps between teeth. Compared to dental crowns, veneers are a more conservative option as they only require a light buffing of the tooth to accommodate the added thickness. We also provide Lumineers®, a type of veneer that does not require any reshaping of the enamel.
In a nutshell, we will start by cleaning and lightly polishing the surface of your tooth. Next, we will take a precise impression of your teeth to create custom-made veneers. Once your veneers are ready, we will use a special cement to bond them to your tooth. To ensure a secure fit, we will use a curing light to quickly harden the cement.
The use of dental implants has completely transformed the process of replacing missing teeth. In this innovative procedure, a titanium post is surgically placed into the jawbone, serving as an artificial tooth root. This post is able to effectively support a variety of prosthetic tooth options, including a single crown, a fixed bridge, or even a whole set of prosthetic teeth.
Compared to other alternatives, implant-supported restorations provide numerous advantages. They offer a superior appearance, closely resembling natural teeth. In terms of durability, stability, and comfort, implants easily surpass other options. Additionally, implant-supported restorations provide the convenience of not requiring regular removal for cleaning, as they can be cared for just like natural teeth. On top of all these benefits, they also have positive effects on overall oral health.
One of the most common complaints we receive from our patients is about the color of their teeth. Many people desire a brighter, whiter smile, which is why we offer in-office whitening. While there are numerous whitening products available in stores, none can compare to the effectiveness of our professional-grade bleaching process.
During the procedure, Dr. Donnelly, at 24th Street Dental Biltmore, directly applies the bleaching solution to your teeth. The solution is left on your teeth for approximately 45 minutes while you relax in our office. To enhance the whitening process, we also use laser technology to activate the chemicals. This combination of bleaching solution and laser treatment can eliminate years of staining in under an hour!
24th Street Dental Biltmore dentist, Dr. Donnelly, specializes in treating patients who have a “gummy smile” caused by excess tissue. Through a cosmetic procedure, he can remove this tissue and lengthen your crowns to improve your appearance. Additionally, the procedure can be used to place a dental crown on a tooth that has broken off at the gumline. To contour the gums, we may use a dental laser. These lasers are able to cut and cauterize tissue simultaneously, resulting in a virtually painless treatment and recovery process.
If you have a smile that is in desperate need of a complete makeover, Dr. Donnelly, at 24th Street Dental Biltmore, might recommend a full mouth reconstruction. This process involves rebuilding and restoring all of your teeth in both your upper and lower jaws. It often requires multiple procedures that can take several months or even longer to complete. The specific procedures suggested will be based on your unique situation.
