Portland, OR Cosmetic Dentistry Services
Our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Jeff Dewey, DDS believes the services he offers have the power to change your life. While the term cosmetic is often seen in a negative light, the truth is that cosmetic dentistry treatments can have an incredible effect on patients. They change the way patients see themselves, which changes the way that others see them. This has the ability to change their work life, social life, and more.
Cosmetic dentistry primarily focuses on the aesthetics of your smile rather than the health and function of your teeth and gums. This type of dentistry gives patients the smiles they’ve been looking for, from whitening to recontouring to replacing missing teeth. When you are looking to change the appearance of your smile, whether minor or drastic, then cosmetic dentistry from Summit Dental is the answer.
From more conservative treatments to more aggressive procedures, cosmetic dentistry can offer anyone a more attractive smile. Advancements in dental technology have also created more natural, tooth-like options and materials then ever before, so no one will be able to tell that you have received restorative dental work.
Below are some of the cosmetic treatments we offer at our Portland, OR dental office to help you change your smile and your life.
Restorative treatments are those that replace missing or damaged teeth. In many cases, these treatments are cosmetic. However, there are cases where these treatments are needed to better the health of the patient. Some of the restorative treatments we offer include the following:
- Dental Implants
CEREC Single-Visit Restoration
Summit Dental is now offering CEREC restorations at our Portland office. With CEREC, teeth can be restored in a single setting for the patient, rather than multiple appointments required with earlier technology. With advanced CAD/CAM technology, Dr. Dewey can design and place ceramic crowns, veneers, inlays, and onlays all in one single visit! No additional appointments or temporary restorations are required.
Teeth whitening can be done in one of two ways: at home with a kit or in our office with a special light. Both options are completely safe and are an easy way to change your look. The at-home option takes longer, but is subtler. The in-office option is completed in about an hour and delivers dramatic results. Learn more about our teeth whitening services.
Veneers are like placing a cover on your teeth. You can opt for porcelain or composite veneers. The dentist will adhere the veneers to the front of your teeth, masking any imperfections that hide beneath. These can be used to mask anything from chips to discoloration to gaps between the teeth.
Invisalign is a system of clear, plastic trays that place force on your teeth to move them into place. It is usually considered a cosmetic treatment because the problems it corrects are rarely big enough to cause health problems. Invisalign allows you to get the smile you want without anyone ever knowing you are in treatment.
