What kind of first impression is your smile making? Are there aspects of it you would like to change?

Cosmetic dentistry offers solutions for repairing and enhancing your smile, which often go hand in hand. Dr. Cordes can help, and here are some of the procedures he may suggest to improve your smile.

Teeth Whitening

Have your teeth lost a bit of their sparkle? Perhaps all you need is a quick boost. This can be accomplished by whitening your teeth, and brightening your smile has never been easier than with a take-home whitening system from our office.

We will create custom plastic whitening trays that you can use at your convenience at home. The best part is that they can be reused to update your smile whenever you like because you can always purchase additional whitening gel from our office.

Tooth-Colored Restorations

Gone are the days of metal fillings or crowns detracting from the appearance of your smile! Composite resin and ceramic porcelain are now the materials of choice for modern dental fillings and crowns. These materials are durable and can be customized to match your teeth so no one will ever notice your dental work.

Composite resin can also be used for cosmetic bonding, which can improve a number of dental concerns such as:

  • Spaces or gaps between teeth
  • Small fractures or cracks
  • Stains or discoloration
  • Size discrepancies
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Root exposure because of recession
  • Slight misalignment issues

Bonding is less invasive than other cosmetic procedures since it doesn’t typically require the removal of any tooth structure. It’s also often less expensive than other treatment.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are micro-thin layers of porcelain that fit over your teeth. They bond directly to your teeth, which adds strength and gives them the capability to repair many of the same issues that bonding can. The difference is that a veneer can completely change the shade, shape, or size of each tooth, which allows you the option to redesign your smile.A woman smiles | Cosmetic Dentist Apex NC
