Can You Improve the Way My Smile Looks?
At Devonshire Dental Associates, we understand that image is very important for many of our patients. Truthfully, even healthy teeth can end up falling victim to common cosmetic flaws like stains, chips, cracks, and more – but our team of experienced doctors has a solution. Our cosmetic services can create dazzling transformations, helping you finally smile with all the confidence you deserve. All you need to do is schedule a consultation here in downtown Boston to get started!
How Can Veneers Make My Teeth Look Better?
Porcelain veneers are dental restorations that are designed to be extremely thin in nature. This is so they can fit comfortably and naturally over the visible surfaces of your natural teeth, hiding years of cosmetic imperfections safely from view. Veneers are ideal for patients who’d like to give certain teeth a complete makeover; they can even be used to alter the size or shape of these teeth to better match the rest of your smile.
Veneers are crafted from high-quality, tooth-colored ceramic materials, and their resistant nature helps them stand up to gradual staining better than your original tooth enamel. With proper maintenance both at home and in our office, patients can expect to enjoy them for 10-15 years or even longer.
Are There Tooth-Colored Options for Dental Crowns and Other Restorations?
There definitely are when you come to Devonshire Dental Associates. Having to make the choice between correcting dental problems with restorative work and sacrificing your natural smile can be a heart-wrenching one – that’s why our doctors are proud to have combined the best of both worlds in metal-free restorations like crowns, inlays, onlays, bridges, and more. These restorations are crafted from tooth-colored materials that both feel and look like your original tooth enamel; in fact, they even reflect light in the same way! They’re also durable, functional, and even safe for patients with metallic sensitivities or outright allergies.
Can You Fix Chips and Cracks in My Teeth?
If your smile is suffering from minor chips, cracks, or gaps between teeth, direct bonding is the easiest way to correct the problem. This useful cosmetic service only takes a single appointment, and the results can serve you well for several years. One of our doctors will simply apply tooth-colored composite resin (the same material used for tooth-colored fillings) to the affected area of the tooth and then sculpt it into a pleasing, seamless addition that covers the problem.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Can You Whiten My Teeth?
Of course. Teeth whitening is easily one of the most popular cosmetic services in the dental field today, and it’s not hard to understand why. A wide variety of circumstances can lead to discolored and stained smiles, including coffee, wine, certain fruits, medications, old age, and even simple genetics. If you’re ready to refresh your look, in-house teeth whitening is the answer! This procedure is completed over the course of just a single appointment, and patients can expect their tooth enamel to be several shades brighter by the end.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
Can I Whiten My Smile At Home?
Definitely! Some of our patients aren’t interested in making big, dramatic changes to their smiles overnight. Instead, they’d like to undergo a more gradual transformation that happens on their own schedule. In this case, we can provide high-grade whitening gel and custom-made oral trays. Your only job is to combine the two and wear them together for a certain amount of time (usually an hour or two) each day, whenever you have the free time. Many patients see improvement after only one use!
Can You Fix An Uneven or “Gummy” Smile?
Many patients are surprised to learn that their teeth aren’t actually the culprit when it comes to a smile that appears overly short or uneven in nature – it’s the gum tissue! An excess amount can cover perfectly healthy and beautiful tooth structure from view for no reason, as well as cause symmetrical issues that leave patients self-conscious. Our doctors can contour the gum line to correct these problems, removing unnecessary gum tissue and carefully shaping the area to create a pleasing and normal appearance.
Invisalign® Clear Braces
Can You Straighten My Smile Without Brackets and Wires?
With the help of Invisalign, it’s easier than ever for image-conscious patients to treat gaps and misaligned teeth in a beautifully seamless fashion! Correctly aligning your teeth and correcting your occlusion is not only cosmetic but will also benefit the overall health of your mouth. This modern treatment option uses clear, customized aligners instead of the traditional braces model. All the patient has to do is wear their aligners as directed, and they can look forward to enjoying a straighter smile while still feeling confident in their day-to-day life.
