What Cosmetic Dental procedures are offered?
The following provides a brief explanation of the cosmetic dental procedures offered by Dr. Cobham:
Cosmetic Teeth Whitening: Over time, nearly everyone’s teeth become stained and worn from food, drinks, medication and personal habits such as smoking. A professional teeth whitening treatment can restore your teeth to their natural appearance while boosting your self-confidence and making you look more attractive and even younger.
Whiten your teeth at home or at our office!
Our at-home whitening treatments are an excellent and affordable option to help patients update their smile. They consist of a specific whitening gel and trays to allow our patients to whiten their teeth gradually over the course of a few short weeks. We also provide professional whitening services at all our locations. Your cosmetic dentist in Burlington, NC will bleach your teeth using a high-quality hydrogen peroxide treatment. The whole process only takes about an hour and it can lift the discoloration on your teeth by several shades! Check out our teeth whitening page to learn more about our services.
Tooth-Colored Fillings: Tooth-colored fillings, sometimes called white fillings, are dental fillings that more naturally mimic the look, feel, and function of your natural teeth. The tooth-colored fillings is made of a strong composite resin that bonds directly to the enamel and dentin (the bony tissue just beneath the enamel) of your tooth and provides a durable, long-lasting solution – a solution so strong you could bite into hard or crunchy foods without damaging your dental work.
Inlays and Onlays: Dental inlays and onlays are restorations used to repair rear teeth with mild to moderate decay or cracked and fractured teeth that are not sufficiently damaged to need a crown. An inlay, which is similar to a filling, is used inside the cusp tips of the tooth (the bumps on the top of a tooth). An onlay is a more substantial reconstruction, similar to the inlay but extending over one or more of the cusps of the tooth.
Veneers: Porcelain veneers are placed on the surface of your teeth and are indistinguishable from the rest of your real teeth. Veneers can be used to correct a wide variety of dental flaws, such as chipped or broken teeth, misaligned teeth, and severe staining or discoloration.
Lumineers: Lumineers are similar to veneers in that they are placed on the surface of your teeth to correct dental flaws. One advantage of Lumineers is that we don’t need to remove healthy tooth structure to prepare your teeth. This means that Lumineers can be taken off at some point in the future, if necessary.
Crowns: A crown is a dental restoration that is used to cover a tooth that has been damaged by decay or injury. All-porcelain crowns are a vastly preferred alternative to metal crowns because they look and feel like your natural teeth, and their durability makes them a long-lasting choice for the front teeth that show when you smile.
Fixed Bridges: As its name implies, a porcelain fixed bridge replaces missing teeth by using the surrounding teeth as anchors on either side of the gap to create a literal bridge made of a porcelain, artificial tooth. A fixed bridge will not only restore your beautiful smile, it will support your facial tissues for a more youthful look, and help prevent the remaining teeth from shifting.
Restore your smile!
Have you lost teeth due to decay, damage or trauma? We offer several treatments to help restore your smile back to its natural beauty! Dental Implants will give you the look and feel of your natural teeth. The implant will eventually fuse to your jaw and become part of your natural facial structure. We also offer other services like bridges, crowns, inlays and onlays. Consult with your cosmetic dentist in Burlington, NC to learn more about your restorative options.
Straighten your teeth with our most advanced treatments!
We currently offer several options to help our patients straighten their smile. Traditional braces are a tried and true way to align your teeth. They use metal wires and regular adjustments to move your teeth over time. Invisalign and ClearCorrect are more advanced methods that use clear aligners to gradually shift your teeth. The alignment trays are custom-made and adjusted every few weeks. Check out our Orthodontics page to learn more about our teeth alignment options.
