Have you ever caught yourself admiring a person’s smile and wishing you had one that looked as good? Not all of us naturally have a Hollywood smile, but we can definitely work towards one with the help of cosmetic dentistry. It is the dedicated branch of dentistry that mainly focuses on improving the aesthetics of one’s smile. At Sunset Oak, Dr. Volki makes sure every patient is treated with the utmost attention to detail, which helps us provide customized dental solutions to all your oral concerns.
Broken, cracked, or chipped teeth are quite common in the case of external oral trauma. A bad fall, a sports-related accident, or even biting something too hard can result in damaged teeth, which can be quite painful. If that wasn’t enough, they can completely ruin the aesthetics of your smile and even result in a root canal infection. As dentists, we recommend getting damaged teeth restored at the earliest to stay clear of such downsides.
At Sunset Oak Dental, we treat damaged teeth with the help of oral restorations such as crowns, veneers, onlays, or composite bonding techniques. All these restorations are carried out using tooth-colored material, such as dental-grade ceramic or composite resin. We will thoroughly diagnose your oral condition, scan the teeth using our state-of-the-art digital scanning devices, and use the digital impressions as a reference for fabricating the restorations. Once bonded in place, your teeth will be as strong as ever, and the restoration would be indistinguishable from the adjoining natural teeth.
Discoloration of teeth is quite common among individuals who consume a lot of colored foods, beverages, wine, smoke cigarettes, chew tobacco, or do not practice optimum oral hygiene. The teeth may turn dull over time due to the accumulation of plaque, which can often lead to embarrassment when someone mocks you. A simple yet effective solution to this concern is teeth whitening. This procedure is carried using a whitening gel that contains hydrogen peroxide - a bleaching agent predominantly used to whiten teeth. Depending on the severity of staining and your preference, we may suggest conventional teeth whitening, take-home whitening trays, or laser teeth whitening.
The gums are just as important as the teeth when it comes to a pleasing smile. The accumulated tartar deposits on the teeth could result in gum diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis. They can show symptoms such as receding gum line, decaying gum tissues, deeper gum pockets, redness and bleeding, discharge of pus from the gums, etc. Gum diseases can be treated by removing the decayed tissues by laser therapy, getting rid of the plaque and tartar deposits, and grafting healthy tissues in their place. Once the therapy is completed, your gums will gradually heal and return to their ideal condition, provided you practice optimum oral hygiene.
Cavities are caused due to the microbes present in the tartar deposits. They release harmful acidic substances that erode the enamel and decay the underlying tissues. Initially, we remove the decay using an ultrasonic scaling device and clean the cavity. Next, a suitable filling material will be prepared by matching it with the color and texture of your enamel to make it as indistinguishable as possible. The filling will be applied to the cavity, shaped accordingly, and hardened using a curing light. It will be polished to just the right luster to make it appear natural.
Along with these services, we offer various other cosmetic treatments to ensure you get the smile you’ve always dreamt of.
