Cosmetic Dentistry in Albuquerque
We know just how important it is to make a first impression, and to keep it – and your smile plays a big role in that! Cosmetic dentistry is focused on solutions to improve how great your smile looks – by whitening or straightening your teeth. And sometimes there are great health benefits too.
Clear braces, such as the brand Invisalign, provide an alternative to bracket braces to improve the alignment of teeth. A series of clear trays are worn all day every day to progressively move teeth into their ideal position. There can also be many benefits to your oral health by having your teeth correctly aligned.
With so many whitening options available to you – both over-the-counter and at your dental office – it’s important to have a discussion with your doctor as to which products are best and appropriate for you, even for teeth that are prone to sensitivity or resistant to whitening. And don’t forget about touch-ups: no whitening product has permanent results and periodic maintenance will be required.
The enamel surface of teeth can have imperfections in its color or texture. Microabrasion uses acid and/or abrasive products to remove these variations in the enamel layer to produce a smoother surface with more uniform color, and may be done in conjunction with whitening.
