Hi, my name is Dr. Jason Mount and I’d like to spend a few minutes talking to you about Cosmetic Dentistry, I have a lot of patients that come in asking about different ways that they could improve their smiles and really what we try to do here is customized for each patient and it depends on what kind of issues you have going on. I have some patients that they like their teeth, they like the size and shape of their teeth and the color of their teeth. They just don’t like where they’re at and for that patient, the best thing to do is to do braces.
Adult braces for them just move the teeth around, get them in a much better position. It really improves the smile in a short amount of time. Some folks don’t like the color of their teeth and that’s really the only issue that they have. We have a new whitening system that we do now in office. It’s very nice. it’s called “Zoom Whitening” and usually, within about an hour’s time. You can come into the office and get the treatment done and you leave with teeth that are roughly around eight to ten shades whiter than when you came in. It is a really great way to improve your smile in a really fast way and definitely on the smaller end of the scale as far as budget goes to.
Then the other way that people can improve their smiles is with veneers. These are a fantastic way to straighten teeth and change the color of teeth all at the same time and in a very short amount of time as well. With veneers, if we have a patient who doesn’t like the position of their teeth and they don’t like the color of their teeth or if they have like some chip edges or rough places on their teeth that they wanting to get taken care of, what we can do is we can bring you in, do just a little bit of work on your front teeth to make room for the veneers and then the veneers are a very thin porcelain covering they go right over the fronts of your teeth.
We can make them pretty much any shade of white that you want and with that usually within about three weeks you can go from the teeth that you already have to your brand-new smile. Veneers are great, they really are! They last a long time, they really improve a person’s smile and it’s a wonderful way to really make a big change in your smile.
