Is cosmetic dentistry or tooth whitening really necessary when I can just use whitening toothpaste?

Tooth whitening is just one aspect of cosmetic dentistry. While Dr. Crowley offers tooth whitening using Opalescence, his practice offers an array of cosmetic procedures that can whiten your teeth, and do much more to improve your appearance and your self-esteem.

Am I a good candidate for veneers?

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells designed to cover the front of your teeth. Veneers can address stained, decayed, or crooked teeth. Dr. Crowley will take an impression of your teeth in order to provide the dental technician with a model. The process is irreversible since Dr. Crowley will have to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth in order for the veneers to fit properly. For many patients, the results are more than worth it.

Can the dentist fix the gap between my front teeth?

In most cases, Dr. Crowley can use a procedure called “bonding” to make a gap less noticeable, or to repair a chipped tooth. Bonding is a sort of overlay that Dr. Crowley can apply to make your teeth more uniform in color or spacing. He’ll examine your smile and make recommendations based on what is right for your circumstances.

Can cosmetic dentistry be used to straighten my teeth instead of braces?

Only metal braces or Clear Correct can truly adjust or straighten crooked teeth. However, Dr. Crowley can use another method of cosmetic dentistry that will reshape or contour your teeth. Reshaping or contouring your teeth can even your tooth surface, and help correct your bite. These procedures are best suited for patients who have healthy teeth and just want slight changes to their appearance. If you’re interested in a smile makeover, call or schedule an appointment online with Dr. Crowley. The practice is currently welcoming new patients and accepts most major forms of insurance.
