Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is the area of dental practice focused on improving the appearance of your teeth and giving you the smile of your dreams. Advancements in dental technology have expanded the options in cosmetic dentistry, and there’s an approach to fit virtually every set of needs — whether you need to repair a chip on one tooth or want a complete smile makeover.

What can I do to brighten my smile?

Professional teeth whitening is a great way to increase the wattage of your smile. While there are many products on drugstore shelves or online that promise to whiten your teeth, none match the power of the technology available from a professional. Dr. Chee offers a powerful teeth whitening system that doesn’t harm your tooth or gum tissue.

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are thin porcelain “shells” that fit over your natural tooth tissue. Veneers are a great option for improving:

  • Extreme discoloration
  • Worn down teeth
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Minor misalignment
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Gapped teeth

Dr. Chee removes a small portion of tooth tissue to make room for your custom veneers, and uses a colored dental cement to match the shade of your surrounding teeth.

What is dental bonding?

Dental bonding is a popular, affordable cosmetic option where Dr. Chee uses a tooth-colored resin to address your various cosmetic concerns. Many people choose bonding because it can be done in one visit and requires no special preparation.

Bonding can improve the appearance of decayed teeth, chips, fractures, and discoloration. It can also close a gap between teeth, lengthen teeth, or perfect the shape of your teeth.

Dr. Chee begins by etching the surface of your tooth to allow the resin to adhere properly. She carefully shapes the resin over your natural tooth tissue before using a special light to harden it. She then trims, shapes, and polishes the resin until it matches your surrounding teeth.

How will I know which cosmetic procedure is right for me?

Dr. Chee uses the SNAPⓇ digital imaging system to scan your current smile and create a photo that shows you how your smile could change using various cosmetic dentistry options. She can even print a copy of your photo for you to keep as you wait for your cosmetic dentistry appointment!
