Cosmetic Dentistry Services
Feeling confident with your smile is important to your personal and professional life. We want to help you feel proud to show off your smile on a daily basis. That’s why we provide cosmetic dentistry services. Our cosmetic dentistry services include a wide range of options for you to choose from, including:
As we age, it is completely natural for our teeth to become stained by common foods and beverages that we consume. However, tooth discoloration can quickly age your smile. For patients with a dull or yellowed smile, we are happy to provide teeth whitening services to help them achieve their whitest and brightest smiles.
Unlike over-the-counter whitening products, we do not take a one-size-fits-all approach to teeth whitening. Instead, we create custom whitening trays designed specifically for your smile. This provides you with a beautiful end result that is more reliable than those you would get from store bought options. To learn more about our teeth whitening options, see Teeth Whitening.
For patients interested in a complete smile makeover, porcelain veneers are a great option. Porcelain veneers are ceramic shells that are secured to the front-facing portion of your natural tooth. Patients can get one veneer or multiple veneers depending on their budgetary and cosmetic goals.
With porcelain veneers, you can conceal misshapen, discolored, or gapped teeth to give your smile the consistency that you desire. This cosmetic solution provides you with long-term results that you can feel confident about for years. To learn more about the porcelain veneer process, see Porcelain Veneers.
Many patients are interested in what we can do to help with their crooked teeth. Our office is a proud provider of Invisalign. Invisalign is a more discreet alternative to traditional orthodontia.
Instead of metal brackets and wires, Invisalign allows patients to straighten their smiles using a clear aligner system. As your Invisalign treatment progresses, the clear aligners will slowly apply pressure to your dental structures and encourage them to shift into a straighter position. To learn more about the Invisalign process, see Invisalign.
With minor chips, stains, or cracks, we will often suggest concealing these blemishes with teeth bonding. Teeth bonding allows us to conceal minor blemishes using a tooth-colored, hardened resin material. This is an affordable and minimally invasive cosmetic dentistry solution to help you feel more confident with your smile. However, it is not as permanent as porcelain veneers and need to be touched up and replaced much sooner. It is ideal for young patients or patients how are not ready to commit to a permanent treatment. To learn more about what teeth bonding can treat, see Teeth Bonding.
Botox® Cosmetic treatment offers various benefits, including reducing fine lines and wrinkles for a youthful appearance. Botox treatment can also alleviate jaw muscle tension in patients with jaw pain and headaches. It is the perfect treatment to top off a healthy and beautiful smile. As a dentist, Dr. Romay has a lot of knowledge about the musculoskeletal structure of the face and neck. She has undergone lots of training to be able to administer Botox to help her patients battle signs of aging and to treat TMJ disorder. To learn more about the benefits of Botox, see Botox Cosmetic.
Dermal fillers are injectable substances dentists and doctors can use to restore facial volume, smooth out wrinkles, and enhance facial features. As a dentist, Dr. Romay understands how the muscles in the face and neck affect the smile. Her goal is to deliver healthy and gorgeous smiles to her patients which is why she offers dermal filler. A key benefit of dermal fillers is their ability to provide immediate, natural-looking results, offering a non-surgical solution for facial rejuvenation and contouring. This is one of the best ways to compliment a healthy smile. To learn more about what dermal fillers can treat, see Dermal Fillers.
SureSmile has numerous benefits over conventional metal braces. In contrast to braces, SureSmile aligners deliver a more discreet and agreeable treatment choice. Similar to Invisalign, SureSmile is a clear aligner system that involves wear aligners for a few weeks before moving on to the next set. They are removable so you can eat and care for your teeth with ease. SureSmile can treat patients with an overbite, underbite, crossbite, open bite, crooked teeth, and gaps between the teeth. To learn more about the benefits of SureSmile, see SureSmile.
