Porcelain Veneers

When it comes to fixing cosmetic flaws in your smile, few treatments are as comprehensive and effective as porcelain veneers. These thin ceramic shells can be placed over chipped, gapped, discolored, oddly shaped, and otherwise imperfect teeth. Because porcelain veneers reflect light just like natural enamel, the final results will look flawless yet still realistic. In fact, if you’ve ever admired a celebrity’s perfect smile, you may have seen porcelain veneers at work.

Metal-Free Dental Crowns

Whether you’re getting a dental crown to repair an injured or decayed tooth or to cover up a small, discolored tooth, you certainly don’t want your crown’s metallic shine to distract others when you smile. That’s why we can give you a metal-free BruxZir zirconia dental crown. This high-quality restoration resembles natural tooth structure so well that you may even forget which tooth is artificial. Plus, you can rely on its durability to last for many years to come.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

If you are looking for a more affordable alternative to porcelain veneers, you should consider cosmetic bonding. Using tinted composite resin, we can fill in chips and small gaps, cover stubborn discoloration, and reshape teeth—typically all in one appointment. Unlike porcelain veneers, cosmetic bonding doesn’t involve permanent changes to the enamel, but keep in mind that it also doesn’t repel stains as well as porcelain veneers. We can help you determine which option would work best for you.

Teeth Whitening

Have you noticed that your teeth appear more yellow or discolored than they used to? If you smoke, take certain medication, or consume coffee on a regular basis, your teeth can look more dull, especially over time. Although your professional cleaning every six months can remove some minor surface stains, deeper stains require a more powerful solution. At American Dental Care, we use Polar whitening to give you a noticeably whiter, younger-looking smile.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Feeling disappointed in your smile when you look in the mirror? Don’t get down on yourself – it’s not uncommon and you have the opportunity to make a change! Thanks to your cosmetic dentist in Conway, you can gain a grin you want to share with the world. If you’ve never received cosmetic dental treatment before, it’s logical that you want to learn more about it. To help you out, our team at American Dental Care has decided to answer some frequently asked questions from past patients. If you don’t see a certain question below, contact us!  

How Do I Know If I Need Cosmetic Dentistry?

Honestly, there’s a particular treatment available for anyone who is unhappy with their smile. If you want whiter teeth, professional teeth whitening is an option you can explore. If you have chipped or cracked teeth, talk to us about getting veneers or dental bonding. Rest assured – there’s a cosmetic solution for almost every problem! The only way to know for sure whether you’re eligible for the treatment you seek is to attend a consultation with our team. We’ll recommend specific procedures based on the changes you want to make.

Am I Eligible for Cosmetic Dentistry?

Not everyone makes a good candidate for cosmetic dental work. To qualify, you must be free of cavities, gum disease, and other health-related issues. Once your dental health troubles have been addressed, we can revisit cosmetic treatment options. To see if you are eligible for cosmetic dentistry, you’ll first need to meet with us for a consultation. After a thorough examination, we can tell you whether you are clear to move forward, and it offers the perfect opportunity to ask any questions you might have!

Does Cosmetic Dentistry Hurt?

Many patients are hesitant to receive cosmetic treatment because they’re worried it will be painful. Rest assured, we’ll prioritize making your experience as comfortable as possible! Some services like teeth whitening and dental bonding are noninvasive, meaning you shouldn’t even need a local anesthetic. However, treatments like veneers will require your dentist to numb your mouth beforehand. Although you might feel mild soreness and discomfort in the first few days following your procedure, you can easily manage it by taking over-the-counter pain medication or using a cold compress.

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?

It depends on the type of cosmetic treatment you choose. Some options last much longer than others, such as veneers which have a lifespan of 15 years or more with proper care. Dental bonding generally lasts 5-10 years. With at-home teeth whitening, once you reach your desired shade, you use your kit every 3-4 weeks for touchups to maintain your bright smile. Regarding Invisalign aligners, treatment takes 12-18 months on average and then you’ll wear a retainer afterward to preserve your results. You can also ask us about our Six Month Smiles orthodontic treatment. It’s key to remember that oral hygiene, health, and lifestyle habits all impact the lifespan of any cosmetic dentistry option.
