Cosmetic Dentistry Revolves around your Objectives

Cosmetic DentistryKalil Dental Associates enjoys serving patients from Windham, Methuen, and surrounding areas with the quality dental care we would want for ourselves. Part of the joy of dentistry comes from seeing the difference a healthy, attractive smile can make on a personal and professional level. If you have been thinking about improving the appearance of your teeth, we are here to support you with the treatment you need.

Cosmetic dentistry is not a formal specialty. Dentists who conduct smile-enhancing treatments have obtained additional training beyond dental school. The techniques that are learned center on specific goals, such as drawing out natural beauty through the proper use of high-quality materials.

Various Paths to the Same Goal

Ultimately, the objective of cosmetic dentistry is to make the smile look as attractive as the patient desires. This doesn’t mean a full smile makeover in every situation. Often, it is just one or two treatments that attain the desired outcome.

  • Teeth whitening. We have moved beyond the days of home whitening kits. Today, patients may choose this option, or they may choose to undergo professional teeth whitening in the dental office. In cases of severe discoloration, a combination of the two may be planned.
  • Porcelain veneers. From tough stains to a turned tooth to a problematic gap, porcelain veneers have been used for just about every cosmetic smile problem there is. In less than a month, it is possible to have a great new smile.
  • Dental bonding. This veneer treatment differs from porcelain veneers in performance and materials. Dental bonding may be performed to cover a small flaw or area of damage, such as a chip. The ceramic that is applied and shaped to perfection is immediately cured to remain in place for years with good care.
  • Gum contouring. This laser gum treatment enhances the smile by balancing the gum-to-tooth ratio. Soft tissue dental lasers are a safe, precise way to bring out your inner beauty.

Dental care for your Unique Needs

We find cosmetic dentistry to be a fun and exciting area of practice. To learn more about how treatments can be tailored to meet your needs, call our Methuen or Windham office.
