Cosmetic dentistry enhances the appearance of your teeth and gums, but did you know it can also improve your oral health? Cosmetic dentistry works double-duty by restoring and strengthening your teeth. At Blue Bird Dentistry in Fredericksburg, VA, we offer various cosmetic dental services to give you the healthy, attractive, and comfortable smile you deserve.

Professional Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening removes extrinsic stains on enamel caused by dark-pigmented foods and drinks and tobacco use. When you love how bright your smile looks, you are more diligent with oral hygiene, like brushing, flossing, and dental checkups. 

Dental Bonding and Tooth-Colored Fillings

Cosmetic dental bonding aesthetically restores teeth with chips, breaks, and uneven spacing. Your dentist uses a strong, pliable composite resin material to alter the tooth's shape, size, shade, and strength, resulting in an attractive and functional smile. 

Our tooth-colored fillings rely on the same material as dental bonding. If you have a silver filling or need to treat a cavity, you may want to try tooth-colored fillings that are made to match the shade of your natural teeth.  

Porcelain Veneers

Sometimes, stains originate inside a tooth that teeth whitening may not be able to remove. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of material that conceal interior stains and alter a tooth's shape and spacing. Veneers easily and quickly correct small chips or minor misalignments, creating a uniform, natural-looking smile. 

Porcelain Dental Crowns

Porcelain dental crowns cover damaged, discolored, or poorly shaped teeth. Not only do they improve your tooth's appearance, but they also strengthen the tooth and improve function. Your cosmetic dentist can use dental crowns to restore damaged teeth, protect a weak tooth, or attach dental bridges.

Tooth Replacement Options

Replacing lost teeth with bridges or dental implants prevents tooth migration and bite misalignment. You can chew, speak, and smile with confidence and ease when you have a complete set of functional teeth. A dental bridge closes the gap in your smile, and dental implants provide a permanent solution to tooth loss.

Invisalign® and ClearCorrect®

Invisalign and ClearCorrect straighten teeth and correct malocclusions using custom-made, clear aligner trays. Straight teeth are easier to clean because there are fewer places for bacteria to hide. Straight teeth also improve your bite alignment, reduce the risk of decay and gum disease, and prevent excessive dental wear, jaw problems, and breathing problems.
