In the past decade, interest in cosmetic dentistry has dramatically increased. Besides, we all know that having a bright, beautiful, and healthy smile enhances our appearance and allows us to smile confidently.  

What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Modern cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the aesthetics of your smile. Suppose you are uncomfortable with your teeth and sometimes stop yourself from smiling. In that case, you should definitely consider cosmetic dentistry. 

We provide many cosmetic dental services at Matias Dental Group. After a quick consultation, Dr. Thiago Matias can suggest several cosmetic procedures. They will not only make you feel comfortable with your smile but also help strengthen your teeth so they can last your entire lifetime.

Some of the cosmetic dental services we provide are:

What is Dental Bonding?

Bonding is a dental treatment procedure where tooth-colored dental composite resins are applied to the damaged tooth. It is sculpted, trimmed, shaped, and hardened with ultraviolet light, then polished to match your natural teeth. 

What are Smile Makeovers?

Smile makeovers are commonly considered purely cosmetic, but they’re so much more! A smile makeover improves the appearance and health of the teeth and gum line through several cosmetic dental procedures. The goal is to reach the best possible smile for your unique self. 

Some techniques are teeth whitening, braces or Invisalign, Crowns, dental implants, veneers, and many more. Read more about smile makeovers here.

What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening focuses on improving the whiteness of your teeth. It is the most uncomplicated cosmetic dentistry procedure with the quickest results. We take your discolored teeth to another brightness level at Matias Dental Group.

What are Veneers?

Dental veneers are fragile resin or porcelain shells covering the tooth’s surface. Veneers can improve the aesthetics of your teeth by changing their shape, covering stains, and closing unwanted spaces. Follow this link to learn more.

What are Lumineers?

Lumineers are a brand of veneer that are ultra-thin and durable, and faster to apply than regular veneers. Traditional veneers are usually about 0.5mm thick — Lumineers are 0.2mm thick. For reference, that’s about the thickness of a dollar bill!

What is Internal Bleaching?

Internal bleaching is the process of whitening a tooth from the inside out. Unlike traditional tooth whitening, internal bleaching is completed from the inside out. Learn more here.

Thanks to the advances in modern dentistry, Matias Dental Group can improve your teeth and the balance of your smile with quick, painless, and surprisingly affordable treatments.

  • Fill in unattractive spaces between teeth.
  • Improve or correct bites.
  • Lighten or brighten the color of teeth.
  • Repair decay, chips, cracks, or broken teeth.
  • Replace missing teeth.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Different from General Dentistry?

General and cosmetic dentists can perform basic dental procedures like filling cavities by adding bridges, crowns, and veneers. A general dentist practice cares for the basic dental needs of your teeth. In contrast, a cosmetic dentist concentrates more on the aesthetics of the patient’s smile. 

How long does a smile makeover take to complete?

The length of time it takes to complete can vary depending on the specific procedures and goals of the patient. Some simple techniques, such as teeth whitening, can be completed in a single office visit. More complex procedures, such as veneers can take several weeks or month

It’s important to note that the time required for a smile makeover will depend on the individual case, the patient’s goals, and the complexity of the treatment plan. Dr. Matias can give you a more accurate estimate for your specific case.
