A veneer is a thin, decorative covering laid over your teeth usually for the purpose of enhanced esthetics. These are custom-designed to exactly match the natural shape and color of your existing teeth.
We offer two types. Porcelain veneers are hand-crafted in our dental lab and are made of porcelain. Composite veneers are made of composite materials and crafted for fit and look inside your mouth.
Veneers are cosmetic, if you have chipped, cracked or broken teeth or your teeth are discolored with stains, or worn and disproportionate, veneers can rectify those problems and give you a beautiful smile.
By covering damage or discoloration, veneers can give you back your natural smile and your confidence as well. Matching the shape and color of your teeth make veneers a perfect fit and the right choice for your smile.
Created in our lab then perfectly fitting to your smile. You can see them before they go in and we can do a single tooth or a full arch.
Dental crowns are a “full coverage” restoration of your existing tooth that completely replaces the damaged or decayed tooth structure. At Areté Smile Design Center, we superior esthetic qualities use crown materials. We will always choose the appropriate crown material for its intended location and application.
• Natural: Porcelain or zirconia dental crowns are extremely durable and allow for seamless match to existing teeth.
• Durable: Our crown materials are long lasting and durable.
• Functional: Crowns allow for optimal functionality while eating and speaking and help restore overall oral health.
• Brighter Smile: Crowns can help you feel better about your overall health and smile.
Used for restorative and cosmetic purposes, a crown can help an ailing tooth regain strength and integrity while also returning its natural beauty. We approach crowns with a level of precision and skill rarely seen in the industry.
A dental bridge will, quite literally, bridge the gap where a tooth or teeth are missing. Using the teeth on either side of the gap we anchor a pontic, a false tooth, in the opening bridging the gap.
When a tooth or teeth are missing the jawline can look aged, your bite can be affected and your smile can look off. Teeth can become crooked moving toward the gap and decay can result from teeth shifting.
If you’re having trouble chewing properly or speaking clearly, that may be the result of missing teeth and a bridge will help. If you’re shy about your smile due to missing teeth a bridge will help that as well.
Missing teeth can cause the face to sag, the lips to flatten, look thin and lead to decay and pain. A bridge is a treatment option to fill in gaps and avoid further problems with your teeth and gums.
Botox is most commonly used for the reduction of wrinkles, however, it has many therapeutic properties. Botox can be used for muscle relief therapy, TMJ disorders and relieving migraine headaches. When responsibly used by trained doctors, its neurotoxic effects can be harnessed therapeutically by temporarily blocking the nerve stimulation to specific muscle fibers. Backed by 15 years of clinical studies, Botox has been shown to prevent up to 9 headache days per month and is proven to reduce symptoms of TMD as well.
Fillers are products such as collagen, hyaluronic acid, and calcium hydroxylapatite, that add fullness to parts of the face and reduce the look of wrinkles. Usually, these injectable fillers can be applied in a single visit and they can last up to six months at a time depending on location. Fillers can be used to add plumpness to lips that appear thin and flat. They can also relax the wrinkles and soften the worried look that can come from lines between the brows.
Both Botox & Fillers can be used for cosmetic as well as therapeutic purposes. Relaxing migraines, smoothing wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, and forehead or plumping lips, when administered by trained professionals, the results are lasting and beautiful.
Invisalign are clear plastic trays that fit snuggly and precisely over the teeth and help to move them gradually to the perfect arch-form, bite alignment and give you the most beautiful smile possible.
Those who have crowded teeth, gaps that need to be closed or help to reduce a gummy smile. These are not the best option for more complex cases but they will correct many smile defects.
Invisalign has advantages over metal braces; they are more comfortable, fewer risks to teeth and gums, they are virtually invisible so there are no self-confidence issues and they create a beautiful smile quicker.
The Invisalign clear aligners look better than the usual metal brackets, wires, and rubber bands. Because they are virtually invisible they are perfect for adults, who don’t need to look like teenagers and kids as well.
Bonding or dental bonding is a precise technique where white, tooth-colored composite filling material is used to fill or repair minor defects in teeth. Bonding is used for improving the aesthetic appeal of your smile. Fill in a gap between teeth or slight lengthening of teeth for an enhanced look. Applying bonding requires precision and attention to detail and that’s where we at Areté shine as bright as your smile. Detail, experience, and care all go into making your bonding experience the best possible.
Basically, there are two groups that are good candidates for dental bonding. Those who are looking for restoration; fillings, repairs of chips, cracks or breaks and those who are in need of cosmetic help. This would include no-prep veneers, small gaps between teeth or an oddly shaped tooth. The bonding material can be applied to the teeth to fix dark or white spots. Also, if you have a small, old mercury filling, composite binding is a perfect replacement or for repairing an otherwise healthy tooth.
Bonding works to improve the appearance of teeth, change the shape, sharpen the color and generally make your smile brighter and more attractive. We believe that achieving your perfect smile will give you confidence and improve your self-esteem.
A gingivectomy, or “gum lift” is a simple surgical procedure that removes any excessive soft tissue from around the gum line. Underneath this excessive tissue is your natural tooth. The procedure is quick, safe and effective with lasting results.
With our advanced soft tissue surgical technology, the procedure is relatively painless. We use a Radiosurge electrosurgery unit that is specifically designed for delicate and intricate soft tissue removal and management. No scalpels or harsh cutting is involved.
Anyone with excessive soft tissue build-up or someone whose teeth inadequately erupted from the gums when they were growing up. In either case, a “gummy smile” is easily rectified with this procedure. The procedure gives you a much clearer smile.
A gingivectomy raises the gum line, resulting in a balancing of the tooth to gum ratio for a fuller, brighter smile. This can build self-confidence giving you a boost in your self-esteem. Never underestimate the power of a beautiful smile.
