Cosmetic Dentist in Maple Valley
Aside from the health of your teeth and gums, the dentists and their team at Four Corners Family Dentistry want you to have a smile that is attractive, too. A good-looking smile builds self-confidence. In addition, research shows that when people see someone with beautiful teeth, they attribute a number of positive qualities to that person, such as intelligence, success and friendliness. Of course, not everyone has a naturally perfect smile. But that doesn’t mean we can’t give you one with cosmetic dentistry in Maple Valley. Our office offers a number of cosmetic treatments to enhance your smile.
If your teeth aren’t as white as they used to be—and whose are?—then consider teeth whitening. Stains and discoloration from common foods and beverages, smoking and certain medications can cause teeth to become dull and yellowed. With our at-home teeth whitening kit, you can have a smile that is up to eight shades whiter in only two weeks. Just fill the custom-fitted mouth trays with the whitening solution we provide and wear them according to the instructions from your Maple Valley cosmetic dentist.
In addition to stains and discoloration, teeth that are chipped and broken, misshaped or irregularly spaced can compromise a smile. Rather than go through all of the dental treatments required to fix each imperfection, why not have veneers? These thin coverings of dental porcelain are adhesively bonded to your teeth in order to hide flaws and present a new and beautiful smile to the world.
Bonding uses the same composite resin material that repairs a cavity. A small amount is applied to a tooth that is chipped, cracked, permanently stained or misshaped. The Maple Valley cosmetic dentist then sculpts the material to repair the tooth and create a more natural and attractive looking appearance. Once formed, the composite resin is quickly hardened with a curing light, so your smile is immediately strong and beautiful.
All Ceramic Crowns
When a tooth is damaged by severe decay or an injury, there’s no reason to add insult with a crown that’s obvious. Instead, Dr. Manpreet or Dr. Tran can encapsulate the tooth with an all-ceramic crown. Equally at strong as metal or porcelain-fused-to-metal, an all-ceramic crown creates the most natural looking restoration without compromising strength and durability. And because ceramic is translucent, your new tooth will reflect light similarly to your natural teeth.
Full Zirconia Crowns
Like an all-ceramic crown, one made of zirconia looks completely natural and is extremely strong. Zirconia, however, offers the added advantage of being biocompatible, so there is no worry about an allergic reaction or rejection. In addition, a full zirconia crown requires minimal prep thereby preserving more of a tooth’s natural structure.
