Having a great smile is something everyone desires. After all, it’s one of the very first things people notice about you. Cosmetic dentistry is more popular than ever, with more and more people looking for ways to improve or restore the appearance of their smiles. According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, a staggering 99.7 percent of adults view a smile as an important social asset, with 74 percent believing that an unattractive smile has the potential to inhibit career success. In some cases today’s cosmetic dental treatments also have a restorative component. At Century Smile, here are our most popular dental services and how you can book an appointment to get the beautiful and confident smile you’ve always wanted.
Most celebrities that have bright white, dazzling smiles have had veneers. Veneers are a popular, mostly painless procedure that can address many common dental concerns. Very thin, yet durable, ceramic material veneers are bonded to the front of each tooth to form a beautiful, natural-looking smile.
2. Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic dentistry is a method of professional oral care that focuses on improving the appearance of your mouth, teeth and smile. And although cosmetic dentistry procedures are usually elective, rather than essential, some cases of treatment also provide restorative benefits. There are many different forms of cosmetic dentistry, including composite fillings, teeth whitening, laser gum reshaping, and more. Our office offers all of these procedures, and we find that teeth whitening and composite fillings are some of the most popular services we offer. A composite filling can be used to repair a broken tooth for less than it would cost to get a veneer, and teeth whitening is a simple procedure that can give patients with good existing tooth structure an extra boost.
Invisalign aligners are the clear alternative to metal braces for adults and teens. These clear aligners are the virtually invisible way to improve your smile. Start with a fast, precise digital scan (no goopy putty required). Then we will will map out a custom treatment plan just for you. You’ll even get to preview your new smile.
4. Sedation Dentistry
Sedation dentistry uses medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. It’s sometimes referred to as “sleep dentistry,” although that’s not entirely accurate. Patients are usually awake with the exception of those who are under general anesthesia. Sedation dentistry — even for cleanings — is a frequently requested procedure at our office and we are happy to oblige. We use sedation dentistry to help patients feel more comfortable in the dental chair and to make their experience at Century Smile a positive one.
