Cosmetic Dentistry in Norman
Improving Smiles of Oklahoma Families
Cosmetic dentistry isn't just about improving the appearance of teeth. It's about creating a smile that exudes health and confidence. Dr. Carmen achieves this goal by addressing periodontal health first and foremost and then recommending cosmetic enhancements that are right for your personality and lifestyle.
Periodontal health refers to the condition of your gums. Your gums provide the foundation for your teeth, and like a house, if the foundation is unsound the entire structure is in jeopardy of collapsing. Before initiating cosmetic dentistry, we will ensure that your gums are in optimal condition. When you invest in yourself, you want that investment to provide lasting benefits.
Cosmetic Dental Options
Whether you just want to refresh your appearance with teeth whitening or profoundly transform your image with a complete smile makeover, Dr. Carmen will exceed your expectations. As a cosmetic dentist, he understands how subtle changes will impact your overall smile, and he carefully designs treatment plans that are unique to each patient's needs and desires. Depending on your case, he may recommend, porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, or a combination of treatments.
Have you noticed that you smile isn’t exactly white anymore? Unfortunately, dull and yellowed teeth are a common consequence of the foods and beverages we enjoy, an injury and the natural aging process. To whiten teeth, Dr. Carmen offers the Kör Take-Home Whitening System. Powerful bleaching ingredients and fluoride are combined to give you a smile that is up to eight shades brighter without the discomfort of tooth sensitivity. Just fill the mouth trays with the Kör gel and wear them according to Dr. Carmen’s instructions.
Fixing a minor imperfection in one or two teeth can make a huge difference in the appearance of your smile. With cosmetic bonding, Dr. Carmen can reshape a chipped or slightly broken tooth and even make a slightly crooked one look straight. A small amount of liquid composite resin is applied to the tooth, carefully sculpted and then quickly dried with a curing light. The resin perfectly matches the color of your tooth, so the finished look is completely natural.
If your smile is marred by a number of cosmetic imperfections, then you may want to consider porcelain veneers. Made of fine dental porcelain or composite resin, veneers cover unsightly teeth in order to give you a completely new smile. Norman cosmetic dentist Dr. Carmen carefully considers the size of your mouth, the shape of you lips and your facial features in order to design veneers that are appropriate and complementary to you.
Cosmetic Gum Lift
Teeth aren’t the only components of your smile. Your gums may show, too. However, if your smile reveals an excessive amount of gum tissue, then your teeth can look too short. In this case, Dr. Carmen can perform a gingivectomy or gum lift. Using soft tissue laser, Electrosurge, or traditional surgery, a small amount of gum tissue is removed to reveal more natural tooth structure. The result is a smile that looks more balanced and pleasing.
A Smile Makeover is a treatment plan that combines several cosmetic dentistry procedures. Moore cosmetic dentist Dr. Carmen will first ensure your oral and dental health before making recommendations to renew the appearance of you smile. He’ll consider the color, shape and alignment of your teeth as well as the condition of your gums. Each procedure will build on the progress of the previous until you have a smile that makes you completely happy and confident.
