Something New to Smile About: Bella Smile Makeovers

At Bella Smiles Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we know that not everyone is confident in the way their smile looks. That’s why we offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures that can help boost your confidence and give you a smile makeover. Here are a few of the procedures we offer to fix your dental imperfections.

Stained Teeth

We offer GLO teeth whitening treatments in our office to restore your teeth, in many cases whitening them even more than their original color.

Uneven Teeth

For teeth that are crooked or uneven, tooth contouring and reshaping is one way to get results fast. During this procedure, Dr. Gibson will remove enamel when needed and reshape your teeth using a type of resin to fill in gaps, lengthen teeth, and even out the look of your smile.

If you’re looking to align your teeth and bite, fast braces might be right for you. This type of braces targets the root of the tooth to achieve straightening results in much less time than traditional braces would.

Cracked, Chipped, or Damaged Teeth

There are a few different ways to deal with damaged teeth. The first option is composite bonding, where a dental resin is applied over teeth to re-shape broken areas. The second option is porcelain veneers, which are thin shells of porcelain that adhere to the front of your tooth.

If the damage is severe, dental crowns are another option to salvage your smile. This is a tooth-shaped cap that covers a damaged tooth, allowing you to use it again.

Missing Teeth

If you are missing a tooth, dental bridges might be right for you. In this procedure, an artificial tooth is used to fill in the gap left by a missing tooth.

Dental implants are another way to repair the look of a missing tooth. These are titanium rods that are implanted into your jawbone. An artificial tooth is then attached to the post for a sturdy, natural solution.

Cosmetic dentistry can be just the game-changer you need to put that spring back in your step. To learn more about our smile makeovers or to book a consultation, call Bella Smiles Cosmetic and Family Dentistry today!

Dental Care for Kids

It’s a good idea to teach your kids about the importance of oral hygiene at a young age, and a big part of that is regular dental checkups. Many people mistakenly think that a child’s dental health isn’t as important because their baby teeth will fall out anyway, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Good dental habits start at a young age, and healthy teeth and gums are necessary for the longevity of your child’s smile. Here are a few reasons why you should visit your child’s dentist at least twice a year.

Why It’s Important

Even though they will fall out as your child ages, it’s important that their baby teeth stay healthy so that their adult teeth will be able to form in a healthy, clean environment. Regular dental visits are necessary to make sure your child’s oral health is in top shape as well as to be sure their adult teeth are coming in correctly.

Sometimes baby teeth can even get in the way of a growing adult tooth, in which case it may need to be extracted. Your child’s dentist will be able to check for all of these things at a regular dentist appointment.

Your Child’s First Dental Visit

Your child might be anxious about visiting the dentist, but a pediatric dentist is trained to make the experience as calming and fun as possible. When preparing for your child’s first visit, try to use positive language to talk about the dentist to reduce their fears. The goal is that your child will come away from the experience excited about their oral health and unafraid to visit the dentist again in the future.
