Porcelain Veneers

Do you suffer from several cosmetic imperfections at once? Instead of needing multiple separate procedures, you may be able to invest in just porcelain veneers! These are individually-made shields that are structured to cover the visible portion of damaged, misaligned, and discolored teeth. Since they’re made from durable porcelain, they’re also stain-resistant, allowing you to enjoy their beautiful appearance for up to 25 years.

Metal-Free Dental Restorations

In the past, receiving a cavity filling or dental crown meant having a bulky hunk of metal placed in your mouth that everyone would surely notice. Dr. Condie utilizes natural-looking and durable materials, such as zirconia, for a completely flawless appearance. The material is also gentler on your gums, minimizing the chances that you’ll have a reaction to the material. To learn more about our metal-free restorations, contact us today!

Continue reading below to learn a little more about this wonderful process, or if you have any questions or would like to arrange a visit, feel free to give us a call today!

What Is Dental Bonding?

Also sometimes referred to as cosmetic bonding, dental bonding has become a very popular smile-enhancement solution these days. It’s handily capable of addressing minor chips, cracks, spacing issues, and even discoloration! In just one quick visit, Dr. Condie can examine your situation, take a small amount of tooth-colored composite resin, and expertly mold it over any present aesthetic issues until they practically disappear! The results aren’t just comprehensive; they’re also beautiful and long-lasting.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Dental Bonding?

If there’s some type of minor imperfection in your smile that you’d like to correct, you’re likely a good candidate for this process. Of course, you’ll still need to visit us for a consultation so that we can confirm you’re in good oral health before we carry out the treatment. That said, a few issues that are often addressed with dental bonding include:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Slightly misshapen teeth
  • Staining or discoloration

The Dental Bonding Process

After we’ve determined that you’re a suitable candidate for dental bonding, the process is actually quite fast! Once we’ve solidified the details of your treatment plan, including the number of teeth being treated and the shade being used, Dr. Condie will get to work. The resin is applied to the affected teeth and used to mask any visible issues before it’s bonded and sealed using a curing light. This leads to a naturally looking solution that vastly improves the appearance of your smile.

The Benefits of Dental Bonding

Dental bonding can offer several awesome benefits, some of which are:

  • Versatility – The treatment can be used to redesign the size, shape, and color of one or more teeth, meaning it can cover a wide range of issues!
  • Quick and easy treatment – Dental bonding is non-invasive and can be completed in one quick appointment with fast results, whereas other options can sometimes take multiple appointments.
  • Long-lasting results – With proper care, your results can last for 10 or more years before needing to be touched up or replaced!

Are you an adult who’s still struggling with crooked teeth? In many cases, it may feel like it’s too late to undergo the orthodontic treatment you need without having to suffer through wearing a mouthful of metal that makes you feel like you’re back in middle school. Instead, rely on Invisalign! This method straightens your smile seamlessly while also providing easy use, a comfortable fit, and an overall faster treatment time than traditional orthodontics.

In-Practice Teeth Whitening

Contrary to popular belief, a healthy smile isn’t always a beautiful one. For instance, dental stains can form for a variety of reasons, many of which are completely out of a person’s control, such as age, genetics, and even certain medications. With Zoom! Teeth Whitening from Dr. Condie, we can brighten your teeth quickly and dramatically over the course of only one appointment. The results will be sure to put a smile on your face!

At-Home Teeth Whitening

Of course, some patients prefer to whiten their smiles at a slower, more gradual pace, or in the comfort of their own homes. Dr. Condie can help you with this as well by providing you with take-home trays and gel. All you need to do is wear both together for a predetermined period of time each day, whenever you’d like. Our patients love the convenience of the process, and how quickly they start to see results.

Gum Recontouring

When you smile, do you feel like most of what you can see are your gums? Many people believe the ideal smile is a mouth full of beautiful pearly whites. If you have a disproportionate ratio of gums to teeth, it can make you feel embarrassed. Dr. Condie offers laser gum recontouring, which involves our team going in and reshaping your gumline to reveal more of your beautiful teeth. The laser is precise and cauterizes the area on-contact, making the process fast and minimizing any recovery time.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Below are common questions we’ve been asked about cosmetic dentistry and our responses. If you have others or want to talk to Dr. Condie about your concerns, reach out to our team and schedule an appointment!

Does Cosmetic Dental Treatment Hurt?

The saying goes that beauty is pain, but it isn’t the case for dental work. For certain procedures, some discomfort may be involved, but it shouldn’t hurt or cause severe pain. Even when shifting teeth with Invisalign, you may have some soreness at the beginning and when you switch to the new set of aligners, but it should be temporary and easily managed by eating softer foods and taking OTC pain medicine. Getting veneers and metal-free restorations also entails removing a sliver of enamel, but before we do this, we will give a local anesthetic, meaning you shouldn’t feel any pain while we treat you.

How Long Does Cosmetic Treatment Take?

Treatment time varies not only depending on the procedure(s) you’re getting but also on your unique plan. For in-office whitening, results are achieved in about an hour. On the other end of the spectrum, Invisalign can take up to 18 months. When you meet with us to discuss your goals and needs, we put together a completely custom plan, at which point we can discuss the timing of the procedure(s) and give you a clearer idea of when you’ll have your perfect smile.

Am I a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?

The basic requirement to qualify for cosmetic dentistry is simple—you just need to have a healthy (i.e., infection and decay-free) mouth. If you have a cavity, gum disease, or any other problem, we will work to resolve it first. After that, we can refocus on aesthetically improving your smile. The best way to tell if you are ready for cosmetic dentistry is to meet with Dr. Condie so that she can examine where your smile is currently and discuss where you want it to be!

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?

In select cases, such as Invisalign, the results are intended to last the rest of your life; in others, repeated treatment is necessary. For instance, whitening usually needs to be redone about every two or three years, and veneers and restorations must be replaced about every 15 or so years. The lifespan of your smile will also vary based on how well you take care of it. If you continue to come in for regular checkups with Dr. Condie and practice good oral hygiene at home, you can maximize your results for as long as possible.
