Taking your smile to new heights with cosmetic dentistry
Individuals and their families travel from throughout the region and beyond to Lincoln, Nebraska, for Drs. Chris and Robin Post’s considerable cosmetic dentistry expertise and artistry. Our dentists at Centre Place Dental have mastered the art and science of cosmetic dental procedures. They are happy to provide a glimpse into some of those offerings with you and look forward to helping you reach your “goal smile.”
Cosmetic Dentistry 101
Imagine just about any characteristic of your teeth. Shade. Shape. Spacing. We can improve upon these and other elements of your teeth with cosmetic dental services. Those procedures that are designed exclusively for healthy teeth and gums to correct aesthetic imperfections include:
- Professional teeth whitening
- Dental bonding
- Porcelain veneers
Teeth whitening involves breaking up stain molecules in the teeth with powerful yet safe bleaching ingredients. Dental bonding and veneers are designed to do much the same; they cover up cosmetic concerns. These conditions range from yellow or stubborn deep stains and discoloration to chipped and gapped teeth. They achieve these aesthetic improvements in different ways. With bonding, the dental material (composite resin) is applied directly to the teeth as a putty. Drs. Chris and Robin Post then use their artistic talents to reshape the resin. So, it disguises the imperfections. The material is then hardened and secured to the tooth.
With veneers, porcelain is used to cover up these and other flaws. The porcelain material is made in a lab based on scans or impressions of the tooth. Before the veneer is placed, the tooth’s surface is reduced ever so slightly. That way, the veneer fits on top of the tooth well. It does not jut out too much, looks natural, and is not vulnerable to damage.
Cosmetic, restorative dentistry
Dental restorations at our practice are not only durable and strong, but they are also beautiful and look indistinguishable from the healthy natural tooth structure. Depending on your unique needs, our dentists may recommend white fillings, porcelain dental crowns, or prompt tooth replacement with porcelain bridges or dental implants (designed like natural teeth, from the roots upward!). Even orthodontic treatment at our office is discreet and accounts for cosmetics. We are proud providers of SureSmile®, which uses transparent and removable aligner trays to straighten teeth instead of silver-colored metal braces fixed to the teeth.
We look forward to introducing you to all advanced modern dentistry offers to boost your smile appeal and oral health. Call (402) 799-4977 today to schedule your appointment at Centre Place Dental in Lincoln, NE.
