Discover Cosmetic Dentistry in Kingman
As the name implies, cosmetic dentistry helps patients achieve beautiful smiles by correcting flawed, decayed or missing teeth. But treatment for diseased tooth enamel or missing natural teeth also comes with benefits for overall health and wellness. At Riata Dental, we are committed to improving your oral health and the appearance of your smile with personalized cosmetic dental treatments in Kingman, AZ.
The Health and Aesthetic Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
Dr. Uldrikson provides cosmetic dentistry for aesthetics as well as health. Dental conditions like tooth decay, lack of natural teeth, and infections can make teeth look damaged and are also indicators that something is amiss with your overall oral health.
Certain cosmetic, restorative treatments like crowns and composite fillings improve your oral health by replacing decayed enamel with durable porcelain or ceramic. By removing parts of tooth structure that have been damaged by decay, Dr. Uldrikson can prevent bacteria from further damaging an existing tooth or spreading to otherwise healthy teeth. Cosmetic dentistry can help to preserve your natural teeth and limit damaging bacteria from spreading, but if you have a tooth that has been extracted, we can fill in the gap in your smile with a dental bridge. Not only does a cosmetic dental bridge give you the appearance of a complete smile – it allows for better biting and chewing function and prevents other teeth from shifting out of place to fill the space in your smile.
Cosmetic Dental Treatment Options
Our Kingman cosmetic dental procedures help you regain the appearance of a naturally healthy smile. Dr. Uldrikson can utilize materials that blend-in with organic dental enamel, so your treatment looks as seamless as possible. Our cosmetic dental treatment options include:
Composite Fillings – As a mercury-free dental office, we use tooth-colored resin instead of metal amalgam to fill-in small spots of decay. Our patients don’t have to deal with dark-colored teeth that show obvious signs of a filling.
Porcelain Crowns – Dr. Uldrikson and his team are especially skilled in cosmetic and functional dental restorations with porcelain crowns. We’ve helped many of our patients replace damaged dental enamel and re-enforce weakened teeth with these life-like and durable treatments.
Veneers – Veneers are typically used to treat smaller flaws on teeth, such as cracks, chips, or even un-balanced tooth shape. With veneer therapy, teeth are modified and improved by applying thin slices of porcelain that allow them to look bright white, healthy, and balanced.
Teeth Whitening – Our teeth bleaching services include in-office service and take-home kits that come with custom trays for optimized results. For patients who prefer same-day whitening treatment, we use trusted Zoom! whitening to create brighter smiles in about an hour. Our personalized at-home whitening kits include the professional bleaching power of LumiBright whitening to create teeth that are an average of three shade whiter in just a few weeks.
When designing your cosmetic dental treatment plan, we customize care to meet your preference and your insurance coverage. Dr. Uldrikson helps patients make the right choice so they get convenient, effective, and appealing cosmetic dental care that works best for them.
