Do you want a straighter, brighter smile just like the celebrities you see on the covers of magazines? Rodney L. Allen, DDS and his dedicated team may be able to deliver just that. With our wide array of cosmetic dentistry services, we can give you the picture perfect smile you’ve always wanted. Call our dental office to schedule a consultation to discuss options for cosmetic dentistry in Parker, CO. We welcome patients from Highlands Ranch and other nearby communities.
Veneers are thin sheaths of porcelain crafted to fit over the front surface of teeth. This popular cosmetic dentistry solution allows us to correct or conceal several flaws using one, minimally invasive treatment option. Like any procedure, it’s not right for every patient, but if you want to perfect a smile that’s marred by chips, cracks, stains, and uneven spacing between teeth, it may be the simplest solution to achieve your dream smile. The porcelain veneer process is simple and comfortable. We design and place the veneer at two separate appointments. During your first visit to our dental office, we’ll remove a small amount of surface tooth enamel. Then, we capture impressions that are used by our lab to create your veneer, and we place a temporary veneer that protects your prepared teeth until your final solution arrives in our dental office. You’ll return for a second appointment where your temporary will be exchanged for the high quality, smile perfecting porcelain veneer.
If you want to conceal smile flaws in just one visit, dental bonding may offer a viable alternative to porcelain veneers. In addition to a single appointment procedure, dental bonding is a more affordable solution. However, we don’t recommend dental bonding for patients who want to improve a large area of their smiles. If we determine that dental bonding is right for you, the process is completed in just one short visit. For most patients, we won’t need to remove any dental structure in preparation for your dental bonding procedure. We will numb the area. Then, we place a tooth-colored composite resin material directly onto the tooth. Once we’ve shaped the composite into position covering or correcting the cosmetic irregularities, we use a curing light to harden the resin into place. Finally, we’ll polish and shine the filling in order to match the surrounding dental structure.
Possibly our most popular cosmetic option, take home teeth whitening offers dramatically brighter smiles. In most cases, patients see results up to ten shades brighter in just two weeks of daily application. Unlike over-the-counter teeth whitening solutions, our take home kits include custom crafted application trays and a professional-grade whitening solution that offers predictably brighter results than are possible with store bought whitening products. Additionally, these professional whitening kits are customized to your unique smile brightening needs.
Are you an adult who wishes they could straighten teeth without having to deal with metal brackets and wires? There’s a solution for you at Dr. Allen’s office! With the help of Invisalign, you can easily shift teeth into a straighter and healthier position over the span of just 12 to 18 months. There’s no need to sacrifice your favorite foods or change your oral care habits, so feel free to give us a call to learn more about the process and determine if it’s right for you!
In some cases, one cosmetic treatment is not enough to address all of your smile concerns. For example, perhaps you want to whiten your smile, but also shift teeth over time to remove gaps and misalignment. No matter what vision you have for your smile’s appearance, our team will work with you directly to find out which combination of services can help you achieve your dream smile. This can easily be addressed during a cosmetic consultation.
Like many dental treatments, cosmetic dentistry has the ability to be extremely personalized. While this is a good thing, it can complicate what your total costs will be as they are directly correlated to your needs. For example, small chips or stains will likely be much cheaper to address compared to having a full set of veneers bonded to your teeth. After discussing the materials, treatments, and any necessary pre-cosmetic work, we can break down your costs and start building a plan to finance your care.
At Rodney Allen, DDS, we care not just about your oral health, but your smile’s esthetic as well. There are many benefits to keep in mind following your cosmetic dental treatment. For example, you may notice that you have improved confidence afterwards as you’ll find it much easier to flash your smile off to friends, family, and that special someone you’ve had on your mind. In some cases, you can even expect easier at-home oral hygiene, especially after completing Invisalign.
