Cosmetic Dentistry Services
Dr. Rebol and Dr. Sparks are experienced cosmetic dentists in Asheville, NC. They help our patients achieve their dream smiles by providing various cosmetic services. If you are looking to improve the overall appearance of your smile, we may recommend one of the following treatment options:
Straightening crooked teeth is easier than ever with Invisalign, a discreet alternative to traditional braces. Shaped similarly to retainers, the clear, plastic aligners gradually encourage your teeth to shift into a straighter position over time. Great for correcting mild to moderate orthodontic concerns, Invisalign provides our patients with many benefits they won’t get from other orthodontic solutions. Benefits include no dietary restrictions or added oral hygiene precautions.
As we age, common foods and beverages stain and dull our smiles. While this is normal and natural, we understand that tooth discoloration can result in many self-esteem issues. Our office proudly offers ZOOM Teeth Whitening Solutions to help remove years of stains and discoloration from your dental structures. We offer in-office appointments and at-home whitening kits to interested patients.
Porcelain veneers are thin caps we customize for your smile. They replace only the front-facing portion of your tooth to ensure you maintain your natural tooth’s functionality beneath the veneer. With porcelain veneers, patients can regain control of their appearance and correct a wide range of concerns like misshapen, discolored, or chipped teeth.
Minor dental blemishes like chips, stains, and gaps can have a big impact on the overall appearance of your smile. To help with this, our doctors provide teeth bonding solutions. Teeth bonding is a fast and affordable cosmetic dentistry solution. Using a tooth-colored resin material similar to that used during dental fillings, teeth bonding allows our doctors to conceal minor blemishes within just one appointment.
Why Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry focuses on the aesthetics of your smile. We want to give you a nice, even smile that you’re proud to show off in public. But don’t be mistaken and think cosmetic dentistry is solely for looks. Many cosmetic dental issues people are worried about are caused by underlying oral health issues. It’s crucial to treat those root causes to improve oral health and relieve the symptoms.
Treating Crooked Teeth
Crooked teeth are a good example of this. Patients with crooked teeth usually don’t like how they look, so they come to us. But crooked teeth can have a lot of oral health impacts. For instance, they’re harder to clean than normal teeth. They’re cramped and come together at odd angles that can be hard to get between. Even specialized dental tools may not be able to reach certain spots. Then, you’re still at risk of tooth decay and gum disease, even if you’re technically doing everything right.
Crooked teeth also create an uneven bite. When your bite comes together, the pressure of it evenly distributes throughout all of your teeth. But when the bite is uneven, certain teeth take on more pressure than others. These teeth wear down faster and are more prone to damage, like chips and cracks. The longer this goes on, the more you’ll need restorative services to care for those teeth.
Uneven bites are one of the main causes of TMJ disorders. Because your bite isn’t coming together properly, your jaw isn’t tracking properly either. It starts to wear down the joint and causes it to malfunction. The muscles that help move the jaw become strained. Pain and tension radiate throughout the jaw, face, head, and neck. You may also have trouble biting and chewing, or your jaw can get stuck in certain positions.
Crooked teeth are a cosmetic problem but can have all these oral health implications. When we treat the root cause, we improve your overall oral health.
Smile Makeovers in Asheville, NC
A smile makeover takes cosmetic dentistry a step further than the normal patient. We combine multiple services to completely make over your smile and give you back the confidence to show it off. Each patient’s situation is different depending on their unique needs. The mission is to whiten, reshape, and balance out your smile.
As with any of our cosmetic services, we start with a consultation. The dentist performs a thorough oral examination and assesses the condition of your oral health and any issues that may need to be treated. If you have conditions like cavities or gum disease, we want to treat that before working on the cosmetic goals. We’ll also talk to you about your cosmetic wants, medical history, and budget so that we can create the ideal personalized treatment plan for you.
We have various digital tools to plan out your dream smile and give you an idea of how it will look. The foundation of your smile comes first. Invisalign corrects crooked teeth, or we refer you to a trusted orthodontist if you need more care. If you have missing teeth, we recommend you replace them with dental implants. They’re the solution that looks and feels the most like your natural teeth.
To get a white, even smile, we can use multiple tools. Professional teeth whitening carries many benefits compared to over-the-counter solutions. If your discoloration doesn’t respond to whitening treatment, porcelain veneers or dental bonding can match any shade of white you desire. These solutions can also treat cracked and worn-down teeth.
