Do you wish your smile was straighter, brighter or undamaged? You can turn your dream into reality with a variety of cosmetic dentistry treatments designed to improve your smile. Dr. Stephen Pratt, Dr. Stephanie Winterton, and Dr. Christopher Flint of Hobble Creek Dental Care in Springville, UT, can tell a few treatments you may want to consider.
Professional teeth whitening lightens teeth by three to eight shades in an hour-long treatment in our Springville office. Hydrogen peroxide used to whiten teeth breaks apart dark pigments that become lodged in tiny pores in tooth enamel after you eat or drink dark or brightly colored foods. Teeth whitening results can last two to three years or longer, as long as you avoid stain-causing foods and beverages. Take-home kits are also available for at-home whitening or occasional touch up of your whitening results.
Braces for adults
Six Month Smiles, an innovative orthodontic treatment for adults, uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires to straighten teeth that are visible when you smile. The treatment is less expensive than other orthodontic treatments and takes months, rather than years, to improve the appearance of your smile.
There's no reason to treat your entire tooth when cosmetic issues only affect the fronts of teeth. Veneers consist of thin layers of porcelain attached to your teeth with dental cement. Veneers lengthen teeth, hide gaps, and conceal uneven surfaces, chips, discolorations, and cracks. They're also an excellent choice if you're looking for a long-term whitening option or want to change the appearance of an oddly shaped tooth.
Bonding offers a simple, effective way to change the appearance of a tooth or repair damage. We use composite resin, a flexible material that hardens and bonds to your teeth when it's exposed to a curing light. Tooth-colored composite resin can be used to alter the shape of a crooked tooth, lengthen a short tooth, hide a discolored tooth, and conceal small cracks and chips that draw unwanted attention to your smile.
