At Mapleridge Children & Adult Dentistry, we offer professional cosmetic dentistry services, so you and your family can have bright, healthy looking smiles. Whether you’re looking to restore a badly decayed and damaged smile with missing teeth or you’re just looking to fix a few minor imperfections, you’ll find that we have a cosmetic dentistry solution that’s perfect for you. We’re proud to offer a large selection of cosmetic dentistry procedures to the families of Liverpool and the surrounding areas. Look below to find more information about the types of cosmetic treatments you can choose from.

Teeth Whitening

While some foods will cause your teeth to become stained, teeth also naturally fade and become discolored over time. If you find that your smile doesn’t have quite the luster that it used to have, a professional teeth whitening could restore it to it’s former radiance. Just schedule an appointment with your local Liverpool, NY cosmetic dentist, and we will utilize effective teeth whitening methods that you can’t get at your local store, to brighten your stained or discolored teeth.

Our procedure uses a custom-tray that we create using an impression of your teeth. We’ll then provide you with a whitening gel that you’ll place in the tray and then put in your mouth over the course of a few days. After the process is finished, you’ll find that you have a whiter and brighter smile!

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are thin shells made from porcelain that can be placed over the front of your natural teeth to restore your teeth’s appearance and correct imperfections. These shells are custom made, so they fit perfectly on your teeth and provide a completely natural look.

Before you get dental veneers, a small amount of your tooth enamel will need to be removed in order for the veneers to fit comfortably on your teeth. The veneers are bonded to your teeth, ensuring that they stay secured in place for a strong, perfect looking smile. Some of the cosmetic issues that veneers can be used to treat include:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Teeth with gaps between them

Crowns

Dental crowns are custom made caps that are placed over the natural tooth. They are typically used to restore teeth that have been damaged by decay or other means, covering up the imperfections for a natural, complete looking smile, while also protecting the weakened tooth.

The process of getting a dental crown usually takes two visits to your dentist. The first visit, consists of reshaping the parts of your tooth that have been damaged, creating a structure that will be able to support the new crown. You will be given a temporary crown to wear until your next visit, while we create your custom crown that is designed to fit comfortably and match the color of your natural teeth. At your second visit, your permanent crown will be cemented to your teeth, and you’ll finally have that complete smile again.

As your trusted Liverpool, NY cosmetic dentist, we offer several different types of crowns in order to best suit your needs. These include:

  • Porcelain
  • Porcelain fused to metal
  • Zirconia
  • Full gold crown

Bridges

Dental bridges are a common tooth replacement option, using a custom-made appliance that will bridge the gap between teeth where there’s one or more missing teeth. The bridge will be bonded onto your surrounding teeth for support, ensuring that the appliance is secured in place for a long-lasting, complete smile. Since the bridge relies on the foundation of your other teeth, it’s important to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Bridges can be made of a variety of different materials, including the following:

  • Gold
  • Alloys
  • Porcelain
  • A combination of the above

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays are indirect teeth restorations that are designed to treat mild to moderate levels of tooth decay, for a healthier, more radiant looking smile. They are typically your dentist will use them as an alternative to fillings because they help treat a tooth without removing or even disturbing the complete structure, which can cause less trauma to dental tissues. They are a very versatile treatment option, since they can even be used to restore cracked or fractured teeth if the damage isn’t extensive enough to the point that it needs a crown instead.

After your dentist takes a mold of your teeth that need restoration, the inlays and onlays are custom made to fit comfortably on your teeth. Inlays are designed to contour your tooth’s biting surface, while onlays cover either a small portion or the entire chewing surface of your tooth. Both types can be made from:

  • Porcelain
  • Gold
  • Composite resin
