Luckily, when you want to rejuvenate your grin and upgrade your overall look, you can depend on the high-quality cosmetic dentistry in Fredericksburg, VA. With our vast range of dental treatments, you can have a smile that looks and feels fantastic. 

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the aesthetics of a person’s teeth, gums, or overall smile. At Blue Bird Dentistry in Fredericksburg, Dr. Mohamed Elnahass, DDS specializes in various cosmetic treatments to help patients reflect their personalities through their smiles. In addition to considering the appearance of one’s teeth, we pay particular attention to your facial profile and structure. Ultimately, we want you to love your new smile!

  • Porcelain veneers to alter the shape, shade, or alignment of teeth
  • Professional teeth whitening to remove stains and brighten teeth
  • Tooth-colored fillings to fill cavities or replace metal fillings

Our leading-edge technology streamlines treatments, enhances patient comfort, and enables us to deliver the best possible results for our patients. 

What Is a Smile Makeover?

Have you ever seen shows about home makeovers or stylish wardrobe overhauls? It’s similar to a smile makeover! A smile makeover alters or enhances your smile using a combination of dentistry procedures. For example, a smile makeover might include professional teeth whitening, dental crowns, and Invisalign or ClearCorrect to attain white, straight teeth. 

A smile makeover usually involves veneers, though other treatments may be included. If you have any of the following, chances are a smile makeover can fix it:

  • Misaligned teeth 
  • Stained or yellow teeth 
  • Missing teeth
  • Misshapen teeth 
  • Teeth with size discrepancies 
  • Dull or discolored teeth 

Your cosmetic dentist in Fredericksburg, VA can speak with you to determine your candidacy for a smile makeover if you’re dissatisfied with the look of your teeth or gums. 

What Are Veneers and How Do Veneers Work? 

Veneers are thin shells of material like porcelain or composite that cover smile flaws. At Blue Bird Dentistry, we use porcelain veneers in Fredericksburg, VA because they are stain-resistant, have a light-reflective quality, and look most like natural teeth. With porcelain veneers, we take an impression of your teeth and create custom veneers to seamlessly blend in with your smile and complement your natural appearance. When placing the veneers, we gently etch the front-facing enamel on your teeth so the veneers fit and adhere perfectly. Next, we bond the veneers to the teeth, make any final adjustments, and polish your new pearly whites. 

Why Do People Get Veneers?

Veneers can undoubtedly get the job done if you want a celebrity-caliber smile! Veneers are highly versatile as they can correct the following smile imperfections:

  • Gummy smiles
  • Minor tooth misalignments
  • Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth 
  • Discolored or stained teeth that won’t go away with teeth whitening
  • Gapped teeth or uneven spacing between teeth 
  • Teeth with size or shape discrepancies
