Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What dental issues can cosmetic dentistry address?

You want your smile to be as beautiful as possible. Cosmetic dentistry helps you fix minor and significant smile flaws, including:

  • Tooth discoloration
  • Uneven or misshapen teeth
  • Crooked or gapped teeth
  • Uneven gum lines or gummy smiles

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin sheets of porcelain that lay over your existing teeth. Veneers offer a solution when you have several cosmetic problems to address, including:

  • Chips and cracks
  • Discolored teeth and stains
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Unusually shaped or irregularly sized teeth
  • Slight alignment problems

To fit veneers, Dr. Pierson files down your existing tooth enamel about one millimeter. He adheres the veneers to your teeth to create a more uniform, sparkling smile that still looks natural and preserves your existing teeth.

What if I do not want metal visible in my mouth?

That’s not a problem, because the restorations used by Dr. Pierson are metal free. They’re useful in correcting and preserving your oral health and bite but look just like your natural teeth.

Dr. Pierson uses the well-respected brands of E.MAXⓇ and Empress dental ceramic. These blend right in with your existing tooth enamel and provide a significant degree of durability. Their structure is safe for patients who struggle with painful sensitivity or allergies to some metals used for dental restorations.

What whitening options are available?

Pierson Dental offers both in-office and take-home options for teeth whitening. These strategies are practical for teeth that are yellow due to the natural aging process, food or drink staining or tobacco discoloration.

The in-office solution is fast and effective, leaving your teeth dramatically brighter in just one hour. One of the expert technicians at Pierson Dental applies a revolutionary light-activated gel to your enamel and then cures it with a specialized light to attack deep stains and stubborn discoloration.

At-home whitening offers a more gradual whitening effect. The team at Pierson Dental provides you with custom-made oral trays and a high-grade whitening material that you wear about 30 minutes each day for several weeks to create a brighter, more radiant smile.

What is gum contouring?

Cosmetic issues with your smile may sometimes be due to uneven or excessive gum tissue. Dr. Pierson offers gum recontouring, which involves sculpting the gum line into a more pleasing and symmetrical look, which improves the appearance of your smile.
