When you enter a room, you want to make a great first impression with a beautiful, healthy smile. Your smile is often the first thing people notice when they meet you, and having a smile you’re proud of can make a world of difference in your self-confidence and how you interact with others.

According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, about 99 percent of Americans believe that having an attractive and authentic smile is important for personal and professional success. When you have a smile you love, you are more likely to share it with the world, which can also improve your quality of life.  

Of course, not everyone is born with a perfect smile, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a beautiful grin like the celebrities we see on TV. Cosmetic dentistry at Palms Dental can make your dream smile a stunning reality. Cosmetic dentistry can upgrade your smile’s appearance if you have discolored, misaligned, or otherwise imperfect teeth. But did you know cosmetic dentistry can do more than improve aesthetics? It can improve your overall dental health, too! Dental health is essential for your overall health, and cosmetic dentistry can help preserve it.

If you live near West Bradenton, FL, and want to improve your oral health, you can count on our team at Palms Dental, led by Dr. Christopher Stock. Dr. Stock is an exceptional cosmetic dentist who uses state-of-the-art technology to provide the highest quality of care in a warm and comfortable environment.

What Issues Can Cosmetic Dentistry Fix?

The main goal of cosmetic dentistry is to improve your smile’s aesthetics and enhance your natural beauty. With cosmetic dentistry, your dentist can correct the following imperfections:

  • Intrinsic tooth discoloration 
  • Extrinsic tooth stains 
  • Broken teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Fractured teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Gaps in teeth
  • Crooked or misaligned teeth
  • Overlapping or crowded teeth
  • Teeth with height or size discrepancies

Palms Dental provides various cosmetic dentistry services designed for your unique goals, whether the problem is due to tooth decay, diet, injury, or gum disease.

The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry Services 

Cosmetic dentistry has numerous benefits when it comes to enhancing appearance and dental health. Our cosmetic dentistry services have the following benefits:

#1 Dental Bonding

Bonding can repair decayed teeth, close spaces between teeth, and fill cavities. Bonding can also protect exposed tooth roots that often occur due to gum recession. Treatment with dental bonding can last up to 10 years with routine dental checkups and good oral hygiene. 

#2 Porcelain Veneers 

Veneers are tooth coverings that hide cracks, chips, stains, mild misalignments, and gaps. Veneers are often made of porcelain and can also repair chipped, broken, or misshapen teeth. If properly cared for, veneers can last for over a decade.

#3 Ceramic Same-Day Crowns 

At Palms Dental, we offer PlanScan same-day dental crowns. Using CAD/CAM technology, we design and fabricate all-ceramic crowns so you can have a new and improved smile in a single dental appointment. Ceramic dental crowns restore and protect the underlying tooth from further decay or damage.

#4 Teeth Whitening  

Professional teeth whitening removes stains and brightens teeth by several shades. Palms Dental offers UltraDent for in-office whitening and Opalescence Go for at-home whitening. When your teeth are whiter, you’re more likely to practice good oral hygiene to maintain a bright smile. 

#5 Invisalign 

Invisalign clear braces use plastic aligner trays to correct malocclusion. Aligned teeth are easier to keep clean, and they’re less likely to get chips, breaks, and fractures. 

#6 Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings match the natural shade of your teeth and repair tooth decay. Ultimately, tooth-colored fillings prevent further decay from spreading in the tooth, and they protect the tooth’s structure.  

#7 Crowns and Bridges 

Our customized dental crowns and bridges restore your smile’s function and appearance by protecting damaged teeth or replacing missing teeth. Crowns and bridges restore chewing ability and reduce the risk of tooth mobility, additional tooth loss, infection, and gum disease. 

#8 Dental Implants 

Dental implants permanently replace missing teeth and restore your ability to chew, speak, and smile with comfort and ease. Surgically placing the dental implants stimulates the jawbone and prevents bone loss or resorption that can occur from losing a tooth. 

#9 Smile Makeovers 

Smile makeovers enhance your smile’s beauty using a combination of treatments. For example, you can have teeth whitening, Invisalign, and dental bonding to whiten and straighten your teeth and fix any chips or breaks.
