Cosmetic Dentistry in Lincoln NE
Smiling can have a profound effect on the moods of the people around you and on your own health and well-being. A beautiful smile indicates youthfulness, health, and confidence.
Unfortunately, many patients feel self-conscious or displeased with their smile. Even tiny flaws can be a reason for a patient to withhold his or her beautiful smile from the world.
If there is anything you wish to change about the appearance of your teeth, Lincoln Dental Associates would be happy to discuss your concerns and help determine the best treatment option for you.
The cosmetic services offered in our office include:
We’ll give each patient their own custom bleaching trays to take home with them so they can whiten their teeth from the comfort of their own home. At the first appointment, we’ll take impressions of the patient’s upper and lower arches and fabricate a set of custom bleaching trays. Patients will use these trays with the provided Opalescence whitening gel at home to whiten their teeth. Noticeable results are typically seen within two weeks.
Repairing Chips or Rough Spots on Teeth
Chipped teeth or teeth with a rough surface not only look bad, but they can make one’s teeth more vulnerable to decay. At Lincoln Dental Associates, our dentist will use a tooth-colored filling material to give teeth an even, smooth appearance as well as repair chips and cracks in teeth.
Cavities not only compromise the health of one’s teeth, but it also can negatively impact the appearance of them. At Lincoln Dental Associates, we use nearly-invisible, tooth-colored resin fillings instead of the noticeable silver (amalgam) fillings. Porcelain fillings are also available.
Teeth that are crooked, misaligned, irregularly shaped and rough can ruin the appearance of a smile. We’ll use sanding discs to smooth teeth and reshape minor irregularities of teeth edges so patients can regain their naturally beautiful smile.
Closing Gaps Between Teeth
Nobody wants an embarrassing gap between their teeth, especially in noticeable spots such as between the two front teeth. At Lincoln Dental Associates, we offer patients a variety of dental treatment options to close those embarrassing gaps between their teeth including Invisalign, dental implants, veneers, crowns, resin fillings and porcelain bridgework.
Cosmetic Gum Surgery
For some patients, their smiles might be too “gummy” where their gums cover up a lot of their teeth, making the teeth look short. This condition can be treated with minor surgery that reshapes the gum tissue to give it a more leveled appearance.
Patients with gaps in their smiles from missing teeth can benefit from dental implants. The titanium rods of dental implants are capped off with natural, tooth-like crowns, thereby providing a permanent replacement for missing teeth.
