Cosmetic Dental Care Virginia BeachCosmetic dentistry is generally used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance (though not necessarily the function) of a person’s teeth, gums and/or bite. It primarily focuses on improvement dental aesthetics in color, position, shape, size, alignment and overall smile appearance. Services include:

Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are very similar to dental crowns but are used mainly for cosmetic purposes.  Only the front portion of the tooth is covered with a customized porcelain shell that helps transform chipped, discolored, or malposition teeth into a beautiful smile.

Veneers can improve many dental discrepancies:

•    To make teeth whiter
•    To improve the look of broken or chipped teeth
•    To close spaces between teeth
•    To make crooked teeth appear straight

Porcelain Crowns
A porcelain crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth.  It is used to restore the tooth to an ideal shape and size, color, and improve the overall appearance. Crowns are needed when:
•    Teeth are broken or fractured
•    Teeth have fillings and/or cavities that are larger than the remaining tooth structure
•    Teeth that are severely discolored, worn down, and need cosmetic modification
A natural, tooth colored crown will blend in beautifully with the rest of your teeth.

Zoom Teeth Whitening
zoomTeeth whitening lightens the shade of teeth by removing stains and discolorations.  A whitening agent, typically a peroxide product, is applied directly to the outer layer of the tooth and time is allowed for the bleaching to take place.  A special light is also utilized to enhance the whitening process.  Our prescription strength whitening agent combined with our special ZOOM light and works faster and more efficiently than any over-the-counter whitening products.
