Q&A Cosmetic Dentistry in Fayetteville, AR

Are you interested in cosmetic dentistry but want to know more? Read answers to these commonly asked questions about cosmetic dentistry:

How do clear braces compare to traditional metal braces?

Clear braces offer discreet treatment because they are invisible. It is also simple for patients to switch out their aligners as their teeth shift. Metal braces patients need to visit the orthodontist to tighten their brackets and add new wires. Patients can experience gum pain and irritation if the wires poke the gum tissue in their mouth. Alternatively, clear braces only require one or two days for patients to get accustomed to their new aligners.

Are dental veneers permanent?

Veneers may seem permanent because patients have to be sure that they want to cover their teeth with porcelain veneers. We prepare the tooth enamel for veneers, which means that patients must be committed to this cosmetic treatment for many years. Typically, veneers last 15 or more years with the right care.

When will I see whitening results?

Patients can see results from our professional in-office teeth whitening treatments within an hour. We use highly concentrated whitening gel for maximum effectiveness. Our dentists also utilize shade guides to ensure that patients’ smiles look bright after their treatment.

Does dental bonding work for cracked or chipped teeth?

Yes, we offer dental bonding for patients with damaged tooth enamel. Bonding treatment uses biocompatible materials that we can color-match and mold onto prepared teeth. However, we will recommend dental crowns if patients have particularly worn or weakened teeth. Dental bonding is effective for chips or cracks in the enamel. However, broken molars or large areas of wear are best suited for crowns.

Can veneers cover discolored teeth?

Yes, if you have a single discolored tooth or have sensitive teeth that do not respond to whitening treatment, we recommend veneers. Like many cosmetic treatments, we color-match dental veneers. We can match a single yellowed tooth to the rest of the smile or customize multiple veneers to brighten the smile.
