Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

Why should I consider cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dental procedures aren’t medically necessary, but they can provide you with some significant benefits. Having cosmetic flaws fixed helps provide you with a healthy and beautiful smile, which can boost your self-esteem and make you feel comfortable and confident when you’re talking to other people. Some of these procedures can also lower your risk of developing tooth damage or other dental problems.

Am I a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry?

If you have minor cosmetic flaws that affect your smile or cause other problems, such as discomfort while chewing, you might be a good candidate for cosmetic procedures. Dr. Ledakis or Dr. Baez will let you know which kind of procedure would work best for you. In general, cosmetic treatments can improve your smile by correcting the following problems:

  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Uneven tooth shape or size
  • Improper tooth alignment
  • Overbite or underbite
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Decayed teeth

What kind of teeth whitening is available?

Dr. Ledakis and Dr. Baez offer Zoom Whitening, Boost (Obelescence), and Colgate in-office whitening for making teeth brighter. These types of whitening procedures break down stains on your teeth, resulting in a more radiant smile. These whitening options provide effective results for different kinds of stains, including stains from foods, drinks, tobacco products, and the aging process. Keep in mind that you’ll typically have better results if you have teeth whitening done after having your teeth cleaned.

What other types of cosmetic treatments are available?

Dr. Ledakis and Dr. Baez offer several kinds of cosmetic treatments to help you achieve a healthy smile by correcting minor flaws. Some of the treatments they offer include:

  • Lumineers® that cover teeth to hide stains, chips, and other flaws
  • Empress® veneers, crowns, inlays, onlays, and bridges for tooth restoration
  • Composite fillings that match your tooth’s natural color
  • Zirconia crowns for decayed or broken teeth
