Cosmetic Dentistry

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry aims to improve the appearance of your teeth, gums, and smile. While many cosmetic procedures also offer functional improvements, the primary goal is to make your teeth look better, brighter, and healthier. You may find that an improved smile boosts your self-confidence, too.

What are some common cosmetic dentistry treatments?

Dr. Latif offers a wide range of cosmetic procedures to improve the appearance of your smile.

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dental treatments practiced today. A bright, white smile is a sign of youth and vitality, but many of the foods and drinks we love stain our teeth, making them look dull and yellow.

Dr. Latif offers professional-grade at-home whitening treatments with custom-made trays and special whitening gels. You wear the trays for about a half-hour, twice a day, for approximately a week to brighten your smile.

Veneers

Veneers are a quick and minimally invasive treatment to cover a range of imperfections, including crooked and misshapen teeth, gaps, and severe discoloration. Veneers are made of porcelain, which is custom-shaped and tinted for a natural appearance. Veneers are usually installed over two visits and with proper care can last for 10 years or more.

Crowns

Crowns are also referred to as caps. These custom-made porcelain covers for individual teeth are used to address issues like chips, cracks, uneven sizing and shapes, and discoloration. Dr. Latif usually installs crowns over two visits. With proper care, crowns will last for many years.

Tooth replacement options

Nothing disfigures a smile like a missing tooth or teeth. Dr. Latif offers tooth replacement options like dental implants and dental bridges. Both options offer permanent solutions for missing teeth and require a couple of visits for installation. Dr. Latif offers personalized advice on the treatment he thinks will best resolve your needs.

Chao Pinhole gum rejuvenation

Dr. Latif uses this innovative treatment to restore a receding gum line. The treatment is minimally invasive and usually takes just one hour. Dr. Latif uses the Chao Pinhole rejuvenation technique to loosen your gums and slide them back down over the exposed tooth. With minimal bleeding and downtime, your smile is back to normal quickly.

How do I know which cosmetic dentistry treatment is right for me?

Dr. Latif provides comprehensive cosmetic dentistry consultations. He talks with you about your concerns and ideal smile and examines your teeth to determine which treatments will best help you achieve your goals. He’s always happy to answer your questions and help you plan the treatments you need for a beautiful smile.
