Cosmetic dentistry is one of the fastest growing trends in healthcare today. Patients are realizing that they no longer have to live with unsightly gaps, missing teeth, stained teeth, or ugly silver mercury fillings.
The advancements in dentistry in the past decades have nearly eliminated the use of metal of any kind in restoring teeth. Instead, patients can expect natural, tooth colored restorations, smooth, white porcelain veneers and crowns, and more beautiful end results that will last for many years to come.
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is an aspect of modern dentistry that allows us to conservatively restore your teeth back to their natural strength and beauty. It also allows us to enhance the appearance of your smile by closing gaps, straightening crooked teeth, lightening worn and chipped teeth, and whitening your teeth for a more youthful, clean and healthy looking smile.
It takes years of experience and advanced training to be able to design a natural looking smile. A Cosmetic dentist must be able to combine artistry with science to create a smile that looks undistinguishable from nature.
What will my new smile look like?
Every smile is as unique as the person who wears it. Dr. Merlo and Fahrney take great care in designing a smile that suite the individual patient. A series of careful facial measurements will help Dr. Merlo and Fahrney to create a smile that is in proportion to your bone, structure, age and gender.
Thanks to advances in computer technology, Dr. Merlo and Fahrney is also able to show you an image of your new smile before you even begin the procedure.
