At Main Line Family Dentistry, our dentists can provide smile makeovers as a part of cosmetic dental care. A smile makeover uses multiple cosmetic treatments to straighten and brighten the smile. During a one-on-one consultation, a member of our dental team will discuss your goals, budget, and current dental problems. Then, they will create a treatment plan customized to your needs. We offer cosmetic dentistry in our Bryn Mawr, PA dental office to not only improve the look of the smile but also patients’ oral health.
Straightening crooked teeth often make it easier for patients to clean their smiles. Patients with crooked teeth are more prone to developing gum or tooth infections. Even brightening the smile with professional treatment encourages patients to maintain their results. After patients achieve great results with cosmetic dental care, patients are motivated to keep their teeth bright and healthy.
Cosmetic Dentistry in Bryn Mawr, PA
With cosmetic dental treatments, we improve the look and health of the teeth and gums:
Patients can straighten their teeth with Invisalign, an alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign uses clear aligners that straighten the smile over time. An added benefit of these aligners is that they can be removed so patients can eat and drink without any restrictions.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain ceramic. We bond these shells to the front of the teeth to cover areas of tooth stains, damage, and gaps between teeth. Veneers are a long-lasting option for patients that can cover one or even all of the teeth in the smile line.
Dental bonding treatment uses biocompatible resin to cover areas of discoloration and damage. Similar to dental veneers, tooth bonding can change the shape, size, and shade of teeth. We also color-match the bonding material and make sure that it matches the look of natural teeth for a seamless result.
Our professional teeth whitening treatment can take ages off of the smile. At Main Line Family Dentistry, we offer take-home teeth whitening. We customize this treatment to fit each patient’s unique smile. Our dental team will instruct patients on how to use their custom-made trays and gel at home for the most effective results.
Cosmetic Dental FAQs
Do you want to know more about cosmetic dental treatment? Read answers to these common questions below:
Should I choose porcelain veneers or dental bonding treatment?
Although veneers and tooth bonding are similar treatments, they use different materials. Dental veneers cover the front of the tooth enamel. We use veneers that are made of porcelain ceramic, a reflective and natural-looking material. Tooth bonding treatment uses a biocompatible resin that we apply to areas of tooth damage or discoloration. We often recommend bonding treatment for smaller chips or cracks in the enamel. Porcelain veneers offer long-lasting results but tooth bonding treatment can be a more economical option for patients.
Can I whiten bonded teeth or tooth veneers?
No, bonded teeth or dental veneers do not react to whitening treatment because these options are made of resin or porcelain. But if you have old and discolored veneers or bonded teeth, we can provide you with a replacement. Porcelain veneers or tooth bonding treatment should last and stay bright with the right care.
How long does teeth whitening treatment last?
Take-home whitening results can last for several months. Patients will also begin to see results after multiple uses. Every patient is different, so your teeth may react differently to treatment than other patients.
