At SmileCOS Dentistry, we provide high-quality and effective cosmetic dentistry procedures that help restore your smile.
What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry refers to a reliable and efficient method of oral care that focuses on improving your smile and teeth appearance.
Even though cosmetic dentistry mostly revolves around improving your smile by getting rid of oral defects, it can also help improve your smile.
Cosmetic dentistry procedures have many benefits, especially enhancing the aesthetics of your smile.
You don't have to worry about oral defects like a gummy smile or cracked or stained teeth that could affect your confidence.
Invisalign is a popular type of cosmetic dentistry.
It is a clear aligner used in orthodontic treatment and can help enhance your smile significantly. Invisalign aligners are made from a high-quality, flexible thermoplastic material that makes them long-lasting.
Aligners are mostly preferred over braces because they are less conspicuous. This means that people can't easily notice that you are wearing aligners, as is the case with braces. Therefore, if you don't want everyone to know about the oral appliances you are using, we recommend that you choose Invisalign aligners.
They cover your teeth and fit them tightly, making them much less noticeable than the wires and brackets of traditional braces. We recommend traditional braces for people with severe forms of crookedness because they help speed up recovery.
Besides, they can be suitable for kids and teens. On the other hand, Invisalign aligners are ideal for adults who prefer a more comfortable and nearly invisible teeth straightening method.
However, the teeth shouldn't be too crooked as that might need a specialized approach.

CEREC Same Day Crowns
CEREC same-day crowns are durable, quick, and convenient methods of dental restorations. We apply same-day crowns to patients with missing teeth or severely damaged teeth.
To design a same-day CEREC crown for your teeth, we capture digital images of your teeth before using the CEREC system to create a custom ceramic crown. All this is done on the same day, as the name suggests.
The new and advanced CEREC technology comes with a lot of advantages compared to traditional methods of creating dental crowns. Some of the benefits of CEREC same-day crowns include the following:
||Speed: You can get these crowns within the same visit. We will design and fit the custom ceramic crown on the same day of the appointment. This saves you time and restores your teeth' function within the shortest time possible. Most people prefer same-day crowns because they are quick to install.
||Comfortable: Compared to other methods of teeth restoration, like traditional braces, ceramic crowns are very comfortable. Braces you get through traditional placement methods barely fit and are made from resin. This makes them uncomfortable and difficult to use. You might struggle with chewing or speaking as they don't fit perfectly. You don't have to worry about that with CEREC same-day crowns, as they are made of ceramic that fits perfectly.
||Prevent tooth decay: Another benefit of ceramic crowns is that they prevent tooth decay. They fill up any spaces that bacteria might occupy and cause tooth decay. As a result, your teeth will remain in excellent condition since oral infections are kept at bay.

Teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures we perform. We can perform this procedure in our offices in a single appointment.
When performing this procedure, we remove tartar, plaque, and any other debris on your teeth' surface. This will ensure they have their natural appearance.
After that, we can whiten the teeth with nontoxic reagents that will leave your teeth looking as bright as ever. Your teeth become stained over the years due to unremoved food debris, medication, and habits like smoking.
When we perform a teeth whitening procedure, it coats the stained teeth and restores their natural appearance. This process is done in our offices and guarantees maximum efficiency.
You are warned against using some OTC whitening strips as they might cause bad reactions. Some of these strips could contain reagents you are allergic to, making them dangerous.
This is why we encourage you to come in for professional teeth whitening procedures that don't have any side effects.

Dental bonding is the repair of discolored, damaged, or decayed teeth using materials that look like your natural teeth.
To perform a dental bonding procedure, we will drill out the tooth decay and then carefully apply the bonding onto your tooth's surface. Afterward, we will sculpt it to the right fit before treating it to high-intensity light.
Commonly referred to as composite bonding, this process covers all your tooth surface and helps fix its defects. We recommend dental bonding to patients with tooth decay and cracked or chipped teeth.
The procedure helps restore these defects and keeps your teeth in good condition. Besides, teeth with worn-down edges can also benefit from a dental bonding procedure.
