Cosmetic dentistry in Powell helps patients with healthy teeth make over their smiles. Whether an individual wishes to improve tooth color, adjust spacing, cover imperfections or achieve better alignment, Dr. Ryan Eskridge and Dr. Norman Straker transform aesthetics so quickly and dramatically you’ll be amazed.
Unveil Your Best Smile
It’s what cosmetic dentistry is all about. Your experienced team at Wedgewood Complete Dentistry can take your healthy smile and make those annoying imperfections disappear.
Patients have plenty of reasons for desiring to enhance their smiles including:
- Deep dental stains and enamel that has dulled and yellowed over time
- Spacing issues (gaps, crookedness, bite problems)
- Congenital imperfections or minor damage such as chips and hairline cracks
The dentist examines each patient carefully, takes digital X-rays and gets the individual’s
input on desired smile changes. He proposes one or more cosmetic services to arrive at that magically ideal set of teeth and gums.
It’s called a smile makeover, and Dr. Eskridge or Dr. Straker give the patient a realistic idea of what the finished smile will look like. The doctor will explain the procedures, outline their advantages and disadvantages, the expected outcomes and costs.
Available Cosmetic Treatments
In-office and at-home teeth whitening offer patients a fast, safe and effective way to brighten teeth by several shades. Wedgewood Complete Dentistry uses Zoom! whitening.
Over time, tooth enamel picks up stains from:
- Tobacco usage
- The aging process
- Dark beverages such as coffee, black tea, sports drinks and red wine
- Dark foods such as blueberries, curry dishes and soy sauce
- Prescription medications such as some antibiotics and antihistamines
- Acidic foods such as tomato sauces and citrus fruits
In the office, the doctor and his staff apply professional strength hydrogen peroxide gel to the patient’s teeth. Activated by a special light, the gel penetrates the enamel and lifts out years of discoloration. The at-home option uses this effective gel in custom-made trays. The patient wears the trays for a prescribed time daily for results similar to in-office whitening. Teeth stay white indefinitely with diligent brushing and flossing, professional cleanings and touch-ups as needed.
To address more complex imperfections, the dentists may suggest porcelain veneers in Powell. Made of translucent ceramic, veneers are ultra-thin shells custom-made to disguise the front side of one or more teeth. Imperfections include deep staining, odd tooth shape and size, cracks, and chips. After removing a small amount of enamel, the dentist bonds the veneers in place for a permanent, natural-looking change in just two dental visits.
Finally, for alignment issues, Dr. Eskridge offers Invisalign clear aligners in Powell, an inventive system which corrects mild to moderate orthodontic problems without the obvious look of metal or ceramic braces. Aligners are removable, comfortable and straighten teeth in an average of just one year.
