Cosmetic Dentistry

Good oral hygiene and a dentist can help you keep your teeth healthy and functional. However, do you know what cosmetic dentistry can do for your smile? Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that focuses on improving the appearance of your smile. Although most cosmetic procedures are elective, there are times when they may be deemed therapeutic.

 With the best Dentists in Parker CO, including Dr Amber Schmidt, you can achieve your aesthetic goals with a variety of cosmetic dentistry solutions. Several cosmetic solutions are available to you. We've compiled a list of the top five cosmetic solutions to help you to get the white and bright smile of your dreams.




Whitening the teeth

Cosmetic dentistry procedures such as teeth whitening are among the most popular. The teeth whitening treatment is also known as teeth bleaching and can be done at home using teeth whitening trays. There are many teeth bleaching products available over the counter, but they are not always the safest and most effective way to get the results you're hoping for.

Some doctors advise that patients should only whiten their teeth after they have been professionally and thoroughly cleaned. Our teeth can become stained as a result of eating and drinking certain foods and drinks, as well as from taking certain medications. Our office treatments can assist you in achieving the results you desire.



Veneers in dentistry

Dental veneers are made by bonding thin ceramic shells to the natural teeth. The veneers are made to fit your teeth perfectly so that you are assured of the best possible fit. The use of veneers can resolve several cosmetic concerns, such as cracked and damaged enamel, gaps between teeth, and crooked teeth. Whitening veneers can make a patient's smile several shades brighter, which is why they often choose this cosmetic solution.

Replacement of old fillings

The dental solutions for cavities of today use tooth-coloured fillings that are blended to match the shade of the natural teeth. In the early days, metal fillings were often used in your mouth and were very visible when you smiled. The quickest way to transform your smile is by replacing old metal fillings with white fillings.



Permanent Solutions for Implants

A dental implant is a permanent replacement for a tooth that has been extracted or lost. Implanting a titanium post into the jaw replaces the missing tooth. A dental crown or prosthetic tooth will be anchored to the post. As soon as the healthy jawbone has fused to the implant, the implant is permanently secured. To keep your natural teeth healthy and to promote positive gum health, you should clean your implants just as you would your natural teeth.

Dentistry in cosmetics

In addition to helping to resolve issues with bites and jaw alignment, braces can also provide cosmetic solutions for those with slightly misaligned teeth. After addressing other concerns with their teeth, many adults consider their orthodontic options. A discreet brace that becomes almost invisible once it is in place is one of the options available.

The Parker Dentist encourages patients to ask questions that will assist them in making the best decisions for their cosmetic needs. Cosmetic treatments can usually be considered only after functional concerns with the teeth have been addressed.
