Cosmetic Dentistry Can Help You Achieve a Gorgeous-looking Smile
Veneers can completely transform the appearance of a smile. These thin shells are placed over the front of teeth to conceal chips, blemishes, and other cosmetic imperfections. At Windermere Dental, we offer both traditional porcelain veneers as well as minimal-prep LUMINEERS®. To prepare your teeth for traditional veneers, Dr. Susana Moncada will first remove a small layer of enamel before taking detailed impressions. After your veneers have been custom-crafted from dental-grade porcelain at an advanced dental lab, you will return to our office to have them bonded in place. Those who are seeking a less invasive and more timely option can choose LUMINEERS®, which are incredibly thin and can be placed during a single appointment.
If you are seeking a discreet way to straighten your teeth, we offer Invisalign® and ClearCorrect™ orthodontic treatments. Both treatments use a set of plastic aligners to gently move teeth into proper position. The aligners are virtually invisible when worn, and they can be removed, allowing you to continue enjoying all of your favorite foods. With Invisalign® and ClearCorrect™, we can effectively address a range of alignment issues, including underbite and overbite. However, patients with more significant misalignment may be better suited for traditional orthodontic braces. When you visit our practice for a consultation, Dr. Moncada will examine your smile and discuss your goals to determine the orthodontic treatment that is right for you.
We offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments to help you achieve a bright, beautiful smile. During an in-office whitening, we will use a peroxide-based whitening gel to break up stains and brighten your smile by several shades. If you are seeking a more convenient option, we can provide custom trays and a professional-strength gel so that you can achieve a whiter smile at home. In many cases, patients will undergo an in-office whitening and then use a take-home kit to perform touch-ups and extend the results of their treatment. If you are a first-time patient in good oral health, we will even provide a free take-home teeth whitening kit after your examination, dental x-rays, and cleaning.
In some cases, a single cosmetic procedure will not achieve the aesthetic results a patient desires. With a smile makeover, Dr. Moncada will create a custom treatment plan that includes multiple cosmetic procedures. During your initial consultation, Dr. Moncada will listen closely to your goals and take your budget into consideration in order to personalize your smile makeover. Thanks to our advanced imaging software, we can even show you the simulated results of your smile makeover, providing you with an even greater level of customization. By carefully staging your treatments with the end result in mind, we can minimize appointments, recovery times, and costs while achieving dramatic results.
Patients looking to repair minor chips or cracks in their teeth, or searching for a low-cost alternative to porcelain veneers can benefit from dental bonding. This treatment serves as both a restorative and cosmetic procedure. During your visit, tooth-colored resin is applied to the affected tooth and then hardened. Dr. Susana Moncada has over a decade of experience improving patients’ smiles with dental bonding. This procedure is often included in smile makeover treatment plans, or completed at the same time as teeth whitening. Contact our dental practice today to enhance your smile with this efficient, cost-effective treatment.
