Smile and the Whole World Smiles With You
What's in a Smile That Makes This Saying True?
It's easy to take a smile for granted, unless you're self-conscious about yours. In that case, you may spend more time and thought on hiding your smile than enjoying the moment. Natural imperfections, accidental damage, or food stains have always caused embarrassment and social anxiety. Don't dim your smile because of stained, chipped, or crooked teeth. With modern cosmetic dentistry, you can put those days behind you.
Brighten Your Day With a Natural, Healthy, Radiant Smile
Raptou Family Dental has been restoring luster to teeth and confidence to smiles for over 15 years. In that time, we've had patients come to us with the full spectrum of cosmetic dental issues. From whitening to implants, veneers to bridges, every one of our patients has left our office smiling unabashedly.
Whitening the teeth is one of the easiest and most noticeable changes that you can make to improve the appearance of your smile. Whitening, or bleaching, is a non-invasive and simple dental treatment that will alter the color of your tooth enamel to make your smile look whiter and brighter. Read More About Teeth Whitening.
Composite dental fillings are different. Composite resin, a mixture of fine glass, plastic, and other materials, is used to fill in the cavity. The material is not as strong as amalgam (although it can stand up to most normal daily wear and tear), but it does blend in beautifully with your enamel, making it ideal for cavities that affect the teeth visible when you smile. Read More About Composite Fillings.
Cosmetic contouring or crown lengthening (AKA: "crown-elongation" or "crown-extension") is a surgical procedure that is done when the tooth is too short to provide adequate retention for a restoration (usually a crown). Read More About Cosmetic Contouring.
Tooth veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry technique for creating a beautiful smile. They consist of thin sections of durable porcelain that are custom made for the unique shape of your teeth. A crown is a covering that will wrap and protect the entire surface of a tooth, allowing it to look and function just like the original tooth. Read More About Porcelain Veneers & Crowns.
Bonding is a procedure where we apply a tooth-colored composite material to a tooth, shape it, allow it to harden and polish it. It can be used in certain situations where a tooth has been damaged or become stained. These are generally minor repairs that can be resolved through this relatively inexpensive means rather than through a more costly dental procedure. Read More About Composite Bonding.
All Ceramic Crowns
A crown is a covering that will wrap and protect the entire surface of a tooth, allowing it to look and function just like the original tooth. Crowns work to strengthen the tooth while protecting the existing structure, extending the life of the tooth longer than it would be with a filling or another restoration. Read More About All Ceramic Crowns.
When your teeth suffer damage or decay, treatment is needed right away. These issues can compromise the structural integrity of the affected teeth as well as your oral health. If teeth near the front of your mouth are affected, these issues can also impact the quality of your smile. At Raptou Family Dental we can restore your oral health and repair your smile with cosmetic reconstructions. Read More About All Cosmetic Reconstructions.
