Cosmetic Dental Work Can Be Surprisingly Conservative

The idea of elaborate or drawn-out dental care can be less than appealing, even if the experience can lead to smile improvements. One reason people hesitate to look into cosmetic dental work is that they can worry that it will take too long, or that the work might be too involved for their comfort. At our Ankeny, IA dental practice, we can offer exciting cosmetic improvements with conservative amounts of work on your tooth structure. Through a single procedure, we can address several flaws that affect your confidence, and the quality of your appearance. Even if you are hoping to make significant changes, you can be relieved to know that much of your healthy tooth structure can be left untouched.

We Can Correct Smile Flaws With Minimal Changes To Your Tooth Structure

Through the placement of porcelain veneers, or through a dental bonding and contouring procedure, we can produce meaningful changes to the way you look when you smile. Either treatment option can be effective if you are bothered by discoloration, damage to certain teeth, or naturally occurring problems that hurt your appearance. In both cases, most of your dental material will be untouched, as our goal during treatment is to offer a conservative approach to restoring your smile.

How Long Will It Take You To See Your Desired Smile Improvements?

If you receive porcelain veneers, we can use your initial appointment as an opportunity to take measurements and determine the ideal shape and size of your restorations. When your restorations are ready, you will return for a follow-up appointment where they are affixed to the front of your teeth. Patients who elect to have their dental improvements made with a bonding and contouring procedure can offer results in a short time because no restorations are required. When you come in for an appointment, your dentist will provide tooth contouring as necessary, and cover flaws with a composite resin material also used for dental fillings. Depending on the number of teeth you are having corrected, you may finish with this work in just one appointment!

We Also Take A Conservative Approach To Restoring Teeth In Poor Health

If you have teeth in poor health, we can make sure that the restorative dental work you undergo minimizes changes to your tooth structure. If a cavity is caught in time, a dental filling can be put in place to address damage. In the event you need more support, it can be necessary to place a dental crown over your tooth. Our practice makes porcelain and zirconia crowns available, as they cover teeth without making unwanted changes to your smile.
