Cosmetic Dentistry at Hill Dental Studio

Couple smiling on boatDo you wish you could smile with greater self-confidence? Are there tooth flaws that you’d like to address finally? At Hill Dental Studio, we love crafting beautiful smiles for our patients. We offer an array of high-quality cosmetic services that are customized to meet your desires.

Gum and Tooth Recontouring: If you’d like your gums and teeth to have a more even appearance, then consider gum recontouring. Do you have crooked, chipped or pointy teeth? If yes, then tooth recontouring may be an ideal solution for you. This reshaping procedure can give you impressive results quickly. Plus, it’s fast, effective and pain-free.

Porcelain Veneers: Achieve a stunning celebrity smile with porcelain veneers. These thin shells can cover various imperfections. These include teeth that are discolored, chipped, gapped or misaligned.

As a conservative dental approach to conceal teeth imperfections and fill in the gaps, porcelain veneers are an ideal choice for many reasons:

  • Only a very small amount of the actual tooth enamel is removed
  • They offer a natural-looking alternative that is less expensive than crowns
  • They are durable and stain-resistant
  • With proper care, they could last a lifetime
  • The procedure produces little pain or discomfort

Smile Makeovers: Imagine being able to achieve a straight, beautiful smile that exudes confidence. With a smile makeover, you don’t have to imagine. We can make your dreams a reality. Smile makeovers can include a broad array of cosmetic services that are customized to give you the look you want. You’ll even be able to “test drive” your new smile before any treatments begin.

Teeth Whitening: Do you have tarnished teeth that prevent you from smiling confidently? If yes, we offer an effective teeth whitening solution. Choose from Philips Zoom professional in-chair whitening or Opalescence take-home whitening system. With Zoom, you can get a megawatt smile during your lunch break.

In-chair whitening is ideal if you have a special event such as a wedding or graduation coming up. If you’d rather whiten your teeth in the comfort of your home, then Opalescence take-home whitening is a great alternative.

Tooth Bonding: With tooth bonding, a composite resin is applied to the teeth to conceal various teeth imperfections. This simple and affordable procedure can address teeth that are chipped, gapped or stained.

Tooth bonding typically lasts from 7-10 years with proper daily dental hygiene and regular checkups. It’s important that bonded teeth be checked periodically due to wear and aging or the need to be redone.

Some ‘Side Effects’ of a Sensational Smile

When your teeth look great, you’ll be more apt to show off your smile. Those who smile more often tend to be happier and have a more optimistic outlook. Even if you feel sad, the mere act of smiling could lift your spirits. A simple smile can activate the release of neuropeptides as well as neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin — big mood boosters.

When you are happy, you’ll possess more self-confidence. Smiling also can make you appear friendlier to others. People are more likely to approach someone with a friendly face versus a person who isn’t smiling.

While it may seem unfair, our society tends to judge a person based on their outward appearance. If you’re searching for a new job or would like to improve your social life, enhancing your smile can give you confidence professionally and personally.

Some studies reveal that people who smile on a regular basis appear more confident, and are more likely to be promoted. In addition, they are more likely to be approached by others. Cosmetic dentistry can give you more confidence to smile during your meetings, business appointments, dates and more.

Are any side effects associated with teeth whitening?

We take protective measures to minimize any discomfort during teeth whitening procedures. For example, we typically use a protective gel or rubber shield to prevent bleaching ingredients from damaging gum tissue. The most common whitening agents used by dentists are approved for use by the American Dental Association to ensure safety and effectiveness. When the whitening is completed, you may experience minor tooth sensitivity for a brief period.

Are over-the-counter whitening products effective?

While you may experience some degree of whiteness with over-the-counter whitening pastes, strips and other products, those products contain less whitening agent than a professional system. As a result, you likely won’t get the look you desire. Such products also can result in uneven whitening, which is not a good look.

Are there any particular considerations for dental veneers?

Here are some factors to consider:

Your smile goals.

The color of your teeth. For example, the majority of veneers are ultra-thin and translucent, so discolored teeth underneath may show through. Your dentist may first suggest teeth whitening to decrease discoloration. Veneers are crafted to have a natural tooth-like appearance. The veneer color must match that of any remaining teeth.

Your habits and lifestyle. For example, teeth grinding and clenching may make the veneers more prone to chips, cracks, and breaking.

Can I be sedated during my cosmetic dental work?

Yes, we offer nitrous oxide if you wish to be sedated while having work performed.
