Through cosmetic dentistry, the appearance of the teeth and smile can be altered to more closely match the patient’s subjective concept of what is visually pleasing.
Cosmetic laser dentistry is a discipline within dentistry in which the primary focus is the modification of the appearance of a patient’s oral cavity and surrounding structures. This process incorporates the prevention and treatment of organic, structural, or functional oral disease. Cosmetic Laser Dentistry is now available in our Scottsdale, Arizona office. Enjoy the results with less pain.
In the past, dental fillings and other tooth restorations were made of gold, amalgam and other metals some of which were veneered with porcelain. Now, dental work can be made entirely of porcelain or composite materials that more closely mimic the appearance of the natural tooth structure. These tooth-colored materials are bonded to the underlying tooth structure with resin adhesives. At the Arizona Center for Laser Dentistry we also utilize CEREC® restorations (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) to give your restored tooth a more natural match to the rest of your teeth, and help preserve the healthy part of that tooth. This procedure can be completed in just one visit.
