Cosmetic Dentistry in Boca Raton, FL

Cosmetic dentistry is more popular than ever. Your smile delivers the first impression someone sees and can leave a long-lasting one. From subtle changes to minor repairs, your cosmetic dentist can perform a variety of changes that can improve your smile and transform your life.

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry refers to dental work that improves the appearance of a patient’s teeth, gums and/or bite. Primarily, it focuses on improving color, position, shape, size, and alignment of the teeth.

It can involve the addition of dental material to the teeth or gums, removal of tooth structure or gums, and surface treatments. Straightening teeth may also be considered cosmetic dentistry but is typically performed by an orthodontist rather than a cosmetic dentist.

Advanced Cosmetic Dentistry Services

A bright, beautiful smile can exude confidence. Despite good oral hygiene habits, many people are still unhappy with their smile. An experienced and knowledgeable cosmetic dentist can determine what service would work best for you to get you smiling once again.

Our cosmetic dentistry services include:

Teeth Whitening

Some people have teeth that are naturally more susceptible to staining or have darker enamel than others. Lifestyle choices, diet and genetics can all contribute to stained or darker enamel. Food and beverages, like coffee, soda, and highly-acidic foods, can especially stain your teeth’s enamel.

Teeth whitening can be completed in many different ways. In-office whiteners are stronger than any at-home toothpaste or mouthwash as they have more peroxide. In-office whitening is commonly performed on the front eight teeth and will not harm your enamel. Many studies support the overall safety of in-office whitening by bleaching. If you have hypersensitive teeth or have cavities, speak with us before your whitening procedure.

Dr. Robert E. Lane, D.M.D., offers the very latest teeth whitening procedures at highly competitive rates.

Dental Implants

Dental implants can look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth. You can continue brushing, flossing, and completing all around good oral health habits with dental implants. A dental implant, using a built-in connector – often made of titanium – is surgically placed into the jawbone. A temporary tooth will be placed while the implant integrates in with your natural jawbone to form a strong foundation for the new, replacement tooth. Once the bond is formed, an implant-supported bridge or new tooth can be attached to the connector.

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays are dental restorations, also known as indirect fillings. They can be used in place of traditional fillings to treat tooth decay or structural damage. While fillings are molded into place during a routine dental visit, inlays and onlays are created in a dental lab before being fitted and bonded onto the damaged tooth.

When the material is bonded with the center of the tooth, it is known as an inlay. An onlay is when the damage requires using one or more points of the affected tooth or full coverage of the biting surface.

Inlays and onlays are extremely stable, improve dental aesthetics, and can improve oral health by repairing the tooth decay or damage.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers resemble perfect, healthy teeth. Veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth that cover the front surface of your teeth to improve the appearance. The veneers can be bonded to the front of teeth and change the color, shape, size or length. Porcelain veneers are more resistant to stains and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth.

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap placed over the tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength. For cosmetic dentistry, a dental crown may be used to protect a weak tooth from decay, to restore a broken tooth, cover misshapen or discolored teeth, to cover a dental implant and more.

Dental Bonding

Bonding is the application of a tooth-colored composite resin (plastic) to repair with cracked, chipped or broken teeth. Our dental bonding procedures are often completed in a single visit and can be completed with no anesthesia.

Bonding is an alternative to veneers that can restore your damaged tooth and remain intact for several years.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges work by bridging the gap created between one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns on either side of the gap. A dental bridge can help restore your smile, help you chew properly, distribute the force of your bite, and prevent your remaining teeth from moving out of position.

Teeth Reshaping and Dental Contouring

Teeth reshaping, also known as dental contouring, involves removing small amounts of the tooth enamel to changes its shape, length or surface. If you have a minor defect or imperfection, such as a tiny chip or irregularly shaped teeth, teeth reshaping may be a great option for improving your smile.

Full-Mouth Restoration

Full mouth restoration involves rebuilding and/or replacing all of the teeth in a patient’s mouth. Patients with multiple missing teeth, numerous teeth with fillings that are failing, decaying, are cracked or broken may be candidates for a full restoration. Oral cancer may also require the patient to undergo full- mouth reconstruction as well. A full mouth restoration may involve a combination of cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as onlays, crowns, implants, and veneers. A full-mouth restoration can improve oral health and function as well as greatly improve a patient’s self-esteem.
