Cosmetic Dental Treatments

A beautiful smile is one of the most important accessories you’ll ever wear. When you feel more confident about the way your teeth look, you’ll be comfortable smiling and laughing in public and around the people you love. Choosing to enhance your smile’s appearance can affect both your professional and personal life, as well as your relationships. 

At Chemi Dental, Dr. Hernández will work with you to identify the areas of your smile that you want to adjust or improve. We’ll then create a tooth-by–tooth strategy to enhance your smile as a whole, incorporating the best aesthetic techniques to achieve the look you’re hoping for. Because there are so many types of cosmetic treatments available, Chemi Dental is able to provide a treatment plan for practically every lifestyle and budget.

Opalescence Teeth Whitening System

The fastest way to give yourself a brighter smile is to remove years of stains and discoloration from your healthy teeth. While over-the-counter whiteners help to a certain extent, Opalescence, professional-grade teeth whitening offers five concentrations of teeth whitening gel for maximum treatment flexibility. Opalescence will provide you with the brightest, most dramatic outcome possible. Chemi Dental recommends Opalescence custom teeth whitening kits, which use specially fitted trays to hold the bleaching gel directly against your enamel, minimizing the amount of product required and ensuring even results across your teeth.

Tooth whitening treatments are often recommended before other restorative or cosmetic procedures are completed so that Dr. Hernández can match your updated dental work to your brightened smile. 

Whitening is safe for adults and teens; however, we recommend waiting to bleach your teeth if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have active oral infections such as cavities or periodontal disease. 

Whitening can make your smile appear several shades brighter, without the need for any additional cosmetic procedures. Simply wear your trays as directed to see full results in 10-14 days. 

Composite Dental Bonding

Do you have small imperfections on the surface of specific teeth? Dental bonding could be the answer you have been looking for. Dental bonding is a popular way to improve the appearance of teeth with small cracks, chips, surface discrepancies, or gaps between them. Best of all, the process is non-invasive and can be completed in just one appointment.

Cosmetic dental bonding usually does not require the use of local anesthetic (numbing medication.) Like white fillings, the resin material is first matched to your smile’s color to ensure a match that blends in with the adjacent tooth structures. Then Dr. Hernández hand shapes it to create a new tooth surface in that space. Results are immediate and there is no recovery time required. 

Tooth Shaping and Contouring

Sometimes teeth are simply misshaped, uneven, or larger than their neighbors. Because symmetry is a key element of a beautiful smile, Dr. Hernández may need to adjust the size and contour of specific teeth to create a more symmetrical appearance overall. Contouring and shaping usually involve minimally invasive buffing of the outermost layer of enamel, or sometimes incorporating composite bonding, to adjust the overall shape of certain teeth. Numbing is rarely required and results are immediate.

Implant Crowns

If you have missing teeth it can detract from both your smile’s function as well as your self-confidence. Dr. Hernández offers custom-designed dental implant crowns to fill in your smile and help it look whole again. Our goal is to provide lifelike restorations that match the appearance of your adjacent teeth so that no one can tell you had a missing tooth, to begin with.

Which Treatment is Best for Me?

Each smile makeover at Chemi Dental is different. Some people simply want to brighten up their teeth or address one specific area of concern. Others may have extensive tooth wear or just a small surface that is affecting their smile overall. We tailor our care plans to meet your needs.

Based on your preferences and goals, Dr. Hernández will explore the options that best suit your priorities and budget. We’ll work together to create a strategy that incorporates a range of aesthetic treatments in order to achieve the best possible results. The life-changing results are priceless, which is why we offer flexible payment options on each of our services.
