Cosmetic Dentistry in Garner, NC
If you have cosmetic concerns about your smile, you must set up an initial consultation at Garner Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. This consultation allows us to get to know you as an individual and to thoroughly evaluate the health and needs of your smile. An experienced cosmetic dentist in Garner, Dr. Jenne thoroughly examines your teeth, gums, and jaw before recommending any of our cosmetic dental treatments.
It’s important to know that some issues go beyond the needs of cosmetic dentistry. If our team feels your issue is better resolved through another procedure, we will also discuss this with you. Dr. Jenne often wants to fix any underlying dental issues before proceeding with cosmetic services. This ensures that your treatment will last you for as long as possible. Our goal is to always ensure that the treatment you receive from us supports the long-term stability of your dental health.
Our Cosmetic Dentistry Services
We offer various services to meet all of your cosmetic dentistry needs. Depending on your needs, we may employ just one or multiple of these to create your perfect smile.
Our office offers Botox injections to accentuate your beautiful smile. They smooth out fine lines and wrinkles in your face, including frown and smile lines. It works by preventing certain muscles from contracting, which causes these lines in the face. As a dentist, Dr. Jenne has advanced knowledge of the face’s musculoskeletal structure. This knowledge allows him to target specific muscles to give you the best results.
Made of thin shells of dental-grade ceramic, porcelain veneers can give you a complete smile makeover. We color-match the materials to blend in with your smile or give you a brighter one. Since they cover the front and sides of the teeth, they completely mask any cosmetic problems you have with your teeth. They can treat just about any cosmetic issue you have.
As a less permanent option, tooth bonding can treat almost all the issues that porcelain veneers can. The bonding material is moldable and malleable, so we can sculpt it exactly for your needs. Like porcelain veneers, we color-match the bonding material so that it blends in with your smile perfectly. This treatment is removable if you decide you’d like something different in the future.
The most popular cosmetic dental treatment, tooth whitening provides drastic improvements to your smile in a short amount of time. We provide professional-grade whitening gel and custom whitening trays for the best form of take-home tooth whitening. We’ll tailor your treatment plan to get the cosmetic results you want.
The Importance of Cosmetic Dentistry
If you feel embarrassed about your smile, this can hurt your self-esteem. Many of our patients with missing, cracked, or stained teeth avoid smiling altogether to reduce any unwanted attention toward their teeth. Just smiling can boost the serotonin levels in your brain, improving your mood. If you cannot feel free to smile in public, you won’t experience this boost. It can also make you seem closed off and aloof.
A good smile can also improve your relationships, both personally and professionally. People are naturally drawn to people with a bright smile. If you seem happy and smile freely, you’re someone that people want to be around. In the professional world, confidence is key. You’re likelier to do well in an interview for a new position or promotion. A winning smile is a great asset if you’re in fields like sales or have a job that requires public speaking.
Cosmetic dentistry can also impact your oral health. Many cosmetic dental problems are due to underlying oral health issues. For instance, discolored teeth can be due to enamel erosion, which weakens your teeth. A porcelain veneer can improve the appearance and function of affected teeth. The strong porcelain provides more support for weakened teeth. It also protects them more from further enamel erosion in the future.
Porcelain veneers or dental bonding can realign your bite. When you have an uneven bite, it puts pressure and strain on the jaw joint, leading to issues with TMJ. You may notice your jaw popping and clicking, pain throughout the face and head, or your jaw getting stuck in certain positions. We can bring balance to your bite, eliminating the risk of these issues.
