There’s a big difference between cosmetic dentistry and aesthetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry involves just fixing one tooth or issue, for instance with a crown, implant, or bridge. The goal is to make your tooth look great and match the rest of your teeth. Aesthetic dentistry takes a wider look at the whole mouth and finds solutions to give you a beautiful smile you’re proud to wear. At Sugar Fix, we do this with veneers, Invisalign, and whitening treatments. Let’s dive a little deeper into these aesthetic dentistry techniques!
Porcelain veneers are little pieces of thin porcelain that we bond to your teeth. They’re not only pretty, they’re also really strong! Nearly everyone is a candidate for veneers, and they can instantly give you a smile makeover with minimal or no-prep. Modern dentistry has allowed us to get even better results than in the past AND we don’t have to remove as much of the tooth structure. Because of the advances in veneers, many of our patients wish they would have gotten them sooner.
Sugar Fix offers a few different whitening services that vary in terms of cost, commitment, and result. KöR Whitening is our most sophisticated system. It’s a take-home system with custom trays that you wear for two weeks. The product is second-to-none. It’s able to whiten teeth that haven’t been able to whiten with traditional methods without any sensitivity. Some people come in thinking they need veneers for the smile of their dreams and they’re happy to find out that we can get them the bright white smile they want with KöR Whitening!
Invisalign is an alternative to traditional metal braces for those who want to straighten their teeth on the sly. It’s a series of clear aligners that are made specifically for your mouth. All you have to do is switch out your tray every two weeks, and this process gradually straightens your smile without the pain that is often associated with the tightening of metal braces.
Dentistry isn’t one-size-fits-all. Sometimes we have to implement more than one technique to get you the smile you’ve been dreaming about. Aesthetic dentistry makes smiles look pretty while taking into consideration someone’s entire bite, the form, and function, as well as their entire face, where the eyes sit, their lip volume, etc. It’s not just a matter of putting teeth in; there’s so much to consider when it comes to enhancing someone’s smile!
