Our goal is to help you love to smile!
Most people would think of getting teeth whitening or perhaps veneers when cosmetic dentistry comes to mind. The good news is we can do that and so much more.
Cosmetic dentistry aims to create a positive change in your teeth and enhance your smile. It can provide you with a refreshing, natural-looking smile that will make you look great and feel better about yourself.
Cosmetic dentistry can help you improve your smile by making your teeth whiter, reshaping teeth that don’t match the others, closing gaps between teeth, filling cavities with tooth-colored materials, repairing chips and rough spots with fillings that match and even covering broken teeth with porcelain crowns and give you a smile that creates a positive change.
Veneers are used to improve discolored teeth, straighten, reshape and fix gaps and broken teeth. This conservative procedure involves bonding a porcelain veneer to teeth after the surface has been shaped, creating a brilliant, natural aesthetic result.
Everybody wants clean, white and healthy-looking teeth, but as you get older your teeth get stained and eventually lose their luster. There are a lot of factors like your diet and lifestyle that can cause the yellowing of your teeth. If you’ve been wanting to get rid of the unsightly color and stain on your teeth, you’ve come to the right place! Millions of patients worldwide have enjoyed brighter, more youthful smiles with teeth whitening treatment.
Composite fillings are used to restore decayed teeth and provide resistance against fractures caused from chewing. Composite material can also be used for cosmetic improvements of teeth to correct their shape or color. Here at Lake City Dental, we use a number of advanced techniques to replace unsightly or worn down silver fillings with beautiful, unnoticeable white fillings. White fillings are superior because they don’t expand or crack teeth as amalgam does. White fillings (composite materials or porcelain) provide the highest quality filling. There has been considerable debate over recent years regarding the safety of mercury fillings, with the majority of dentists now in agreement that the use of white fillings is safer and superior to amalgam.
Crowns are used to rebuild and restore weak, yellowed or damaged and crooked teeth and can dramatically enhance your smile. Crowns are a high strength cover crafted from dental porcelain that fits over weakened teeth, while bridges are used to replace missing teeth. During your examination, the doctor will discuss the best options to rebuild your smile.
Implants are another procedure to replace missing teeth. An artificial root is placed into the jawbone and a porcelain crown is attached to it. Implants provide the most natural looking and feeling tooth replacement and can last a lifetime.
Partial or complete dentures are used for the rehabilitation and maintenance of the oral function, comfort, appearance, and health of patients with missing or deficient teeth. At Lake City Dental, we use an advance flexible thermoplastic material that provides a superior fit and better comfort.
