At Hutton Family Dentistry, we are proud to offer the following services to enhance and revive your smile:
Which Cosmetic Dentistry Services are Right for Me?
Before recommending treatments, our dentist first examines your smile, checking teeth for damage and wear and evaluating your gums for infection. A strong oral health foundation includes healthy teeth and gums. These are essential before we can help improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry procedures.
If Dr. Hutton discovers any issues, such as gum disease, our team works to start your treatment quickly. Our skilled hygienists provide treatment for gum disease with periodontal deep cleanings, also knows as scaling and root planing.
Once proper oral health is established and your gums have recovered, our dentist conducts a detailed consultation. This involves discussions about your needs, concerns, and goals for treatment. She works closely with you to create a cosmetic dentistry treatment plan that is all your own.
Cosmetic Treatments for a More Dazzling Smile
Teeth are strong, but they are porous. This means that enamel easily absorbs pigments from dark foods and beverages, causing staining over time. The color of your teeth can also change due to an injury, taking certain medications, and smoking.
We can brighten your smile with comprehensive cosmetic treatments. These include:
Porcelain Veneers: These are thin yet durable shells made of beautiful porcelain. Veneers are placed on the front surfaces of the most visible teeth in your smile. Because they cover natural teeth, veneers can address many smile issues at once, providing you with the Hollywood-worthy smile you’ve always wanted.
Professional Teeth Whitening: This service offers customizable treatment that produces stunning results. Whitening can eliminate years of staining from your teeth quickly and safely in the dental chair or in the convenience of your own home. Professional whitening uses powerful, specialty-grade whitening solutions to effectively whiten teeth.
7 Ways Porcelain Veneers Can Transform Your Smile
Once applied to the surfaces of teeth, veneers can help address these seven common dental issues:
- Deep Discoloration
- Mild Misalignment & Bite Issues
- Dental Chips, Cracks, and Fractures
- Worn or Misshapen Teeth
- Gaps Between Teeth
- Uneven Teeth
- Excessive Gum Tissue
How Does Professional Teeth Whitening Work?
Professional teeth whitening works using the following methods:
In-office whitening works by eliminating stains and whitening enamel in as little as an hour. Once in the dental chair, we apply the whitening gel evenly to your teeth. The entire process is monitored by a member of our team to ensure your treatment is working safely. Whitening your teeth at our office allows us to use the most powerful whitening solutions, offering quick and effective results.
Take-home whitening kits provide a convenient way to whiten your smile in the comfort of your own home, on your own time. If you have a tight schedule, take-home teeth whitening offers the benefit of whitening your teeth at your own pace. These kits include a custom trays that can be ready the same day. They are designed to fit your smile, resulting in even whitening on each tooth.
Cosmetic Fillings to Repair Teeth and Renew Appeal
Teeth can chip, crack, and become worn over time. When your teeth are healthy but experience damage, we offer white, composite fillings to help repair enamel and restore smile aesthetics.
Composite fillings are designed to blend naturally with your tooth enamel and withstand the pressures of regular biting and chewing. Composite fillings are ideal for treating teeth with minimal to moderate forms of decay, as well as chips, cracks, and fractures. These tooth-colored fillings can be applied to any tooth in your smile.
Cosmetic Porcelain Crowns for Versatile Treatment
Crowns are restorations that serve many functional and aesthetic purposes. They work by encasing the entire structure of a severely damaged, worn, or weak tooth.
Made from strong and beautiful porcelain, crowns function and look just like a natural, healthy tooth. Crowns are also extremely versatile and can be used alone or combined with other services to help you achieve a beautiful and functional smile once more.
How We Use Porcelain Crowns to Help Your Smile
Porcelain crowns allow Dr. Hutton to:
- Strengthen weak teeth
- Reshape teeth that appear short due to wear
- Protect a tooth after root canal therapy
- Repair teeth with significant dental chips, cracks, and fractures
- Cover teeth with deep stains
- Restore a tooth’s overall appearance and function
- Replace a missing tooth with a dental implant
What Cosmetic Treatments Can Replace Missing Teeth?
When attached to dental implants, crowns, bridges, and dentures can replace one to all missing teeth in your smile. Dental implants are titanium posts that replace missing tooth roots. Once placed by a skilled periodontist or oral surgeon, they fuse naturally with living tissue and bone, becoming a permanent part of your jawbone.
Porcelain crowns are ideal for restoring a single missing tooth completely when attached to one dental implant. Bridges help fill in the gap created by two or more lost teeth. Partial dentures are a great way to replace multiple missing teeth in your smile, while complete dentures can use four to eight implants to restore your all teeth in your smile.
Dr. Hutton works with trusted local specialists in our area who can skillfully place your dental implants. Expert technicians fabricate our restorations at local labs who specialize in creating beautiful appliances made to mimic your unique smile.
