Our smiles connect our inner and outer selves. It’s important to possess a smile that truly represents who you are. If you’re not comfortable with your smile, you’re not in command of it. Patients with lackluster teeth are less likely to show them, covering their smiles and their laughter. They also tend to feel less confident. This doesn’t need to be the way you live your life: with cosmetic dentistry, nearly any aesthetic change is possible. It’s time to transform your smile from an enemy to an asset.
Ithaca Smile Makeover with Dr. Raminder Singh
Cosmetic dentistry comes in all shapes and sizes. If you’re interested in a few minor tweaks, Dr. Singh will perform beautiful, subtle work. If you’re looking for a brand new grin, we’ll work with you to put your ideal teeth in place. A smile makeover typically consists of a combination of cosmetic treatments. The end result is your perfect smile, tailored to fit your aesthetic wishes. It may include any of the following treatments.
Dental composite has been around for many years, but modern materials and bonding techniques make it more durable and attractive than ever. The tooth-colored composite will be bonded to teeth within just one appointment. Dr. Singh will shape, place, and bond the composite chairside. Dental bonding may be used to correct front teeth lacking in shape, shade, size, or structure.
Whitening offers all the drama of more involved treatments without requiring the same expense or amount of time. In-office whitening will drastically change a smile’s brightness within just 45 minutes. If you’d like to whiten at home, we will provide custom whitening trays and hydrogen peroxide gel. Brighter teeth communicate youth and health, and set off your smile. Many patients are amazed by the difference whiter teeth make, and how satisfied they are with their results.
Porcelain veneers provide similar changes to whitening and bonding, but do so in a more enduring way. These v-shaped porcelain restorations are bonded to tooth surfaces. Once in place, veneers will last for decades (with proper care). Veneers make it possible to:
- Lengthen teeth
- Permanently whiten teeth
- Strengthen sensitive teeth
- Close gaps
- Cover cracks or chips
- Create an entirely different smile (with a full set of veneers)
