Cosmetic Dentistry Services from Dr. Geghani Shahinyan
We believe that oral health and dental beauty go hand-in-hand. This is why we provide cosmetic dentistry services that combine comprehensive solutions to help address many issues.
From deep discoloration and missing teeth to excess gum tissue, our team can help you achieve a smile that is healthy and beautiful. Dr. Shahinyan works closely with our in-office periodontist, Dr. Valerie Klein, so that patients can completely rebuild their smiles after tooth loss.
We proudly offer the following services:
The Benefits of Amalgam-Free Cosmetic Dentistry
Our cosmetic treatments are crafted from natural-looking, body-safe materials at trusted local labs. This is because we are an amalgam-free practice. Our fillings, crowns, inlays, onlays, and other solutions only use high quality materials that are durable, safe, and beautiful.
In addition to providing amalgam-free materials, they also deliver lasting strength and durability. This is especially helpful for our cosmetic and restorative treatments. Amalgam-free materials such as composite resins and porcelain offer many benefits, such as preserving the natural beauty of your smile after decay, damage, or tooth loss. This helps make your treatment reliable and discreet.
What Are My Options for Professional Teeth Whitening?
With the safe power of Zoom whitening, we can lighten your smile by up to eight shades right here in our office!
This straightforward procedure involves a member of our team applying the whitening solution directly to the surfaces of your teeth. We protect your gums and lips with a mouthpiece as we use a curing light to activate the whitening gel. Typically, we repeat the solution application every 15 minutes in increments of three, totaling your treatment to about an hour.
If you wish to whiten your smile, but do not have to the time to receive treatment at our office, we also provide personalized take-home whitening kits. A quick, one-time office visit is all that is needed to take impressions of your smile for custom whitening trays.
These kits come with a powerful whitening solution that you apply in the convenience of your home. Your trays also provide easy touch ups when you need them. This is especially helpful for quick enhancements before a wedding, job interview, or yearbook picture!
How Did My Teeth Become Stained?
Dark foods and drinks, like red wine, soda, and tomato sauce, contain pigments that can easily stain your teeth. While smoking and using tobacco products are common causes of stained teeth, they are not the only reasons. Other forms of tooth discoloration happen in the dentin, the layer past the surfaces of your teeth. This kind of yellowing can be a result of trauma, genetics, or taking certain medications.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are thin yet durable pieces of porcelain used to create a stunning and more uniform smile. Because veneers are placed on the front surfaces on your teeth, they can help address multiple aesthetic issues all at once.
With veneers, Dr. Shahinyan can help with severe tooth discoloration, minor chips, cracks, dental gaps, and even mild forms of misalignment. These porcelain shells are completely customized to mimic the best aspects of natural teeth, providing you with a picture-perfect smile.
How Long Do Veneers Last?
Because veneers are made from the highest quality porcelain materials, they can last up to 10-15 years. The longevity of your veneers depends on your oral hygiene, diet, and whether you visit our office every six months for preventive care.
Can Cosmetic Dentistry Help with Missing Teeth?
Absolutely! Believe it or not, a beautiful and full smile is still achievable after tooth loss. We help make this possible by providing dental implant placement and lifelike dental restorations.
Our solutions for replacing missing teeth include:
- Dental implants, which can replace one to all missing teeth in your smile permanently
- Porcelain crowns to replace a single missing tooth using one dental implant post
- Fixed bridges, which can replace one or more missing teeth in a row
- Partial dentures made to replace multiple teeth lost in a smile
- Complete dentures complete a single arch or an entire smile of missing teeth
Who Can Get Dental Implants?
Just about any healthy adult can make a great candidate for dental implants. However, because implant posts need support from the jawbone, a full and healthy jawbone is essential for successful treatment.
If your jaw is too weak or thin to hold implants, Dr. Shahinyan offers bone grafting treatments that add bone to the area of the jaw in need of implant placement.
Renewing Dental Function and Appeal with Fillings, Inlays, Onlays, and Crowns
For minor chips, cracks, and small cavities in teeth, our white composite fillings are a great way to restore aesthetics and reshape tooth enamel. Fillings can also restore areas in your enamel where we’ve removed decay. The white composite materials used for our fillings are matched to the shade of your teeth for seamless treatment.
Porcelain inlays and onlays are best used for the areas where moderate damage has occurred or a large area of decay was removed. Both inlays and onlays are fabricated using a solid piece of porcelain. These aesthetic restorations are strategically designed to provide a perfect fit.
Dental crowns are ideal for treating teeth with large amounts of decay or damage. These lifelike restorations work by encasing the entire structure of a damaged tooth, helping to preserve and protect it. By using porcelain materials, our crowns can mimic the natural look, feel, and function of a tooth.
How Else Can Crowns Improve My Smile?
In addition to their aesthetic and functional benefits, crowns are extremely versatile. This means we can use crowns as a standalone service or in combination with other treatments.
With porcelain crowns, Dr. Shahinyan can help your smile in the following seven ways:
- Strengthen weak teeth
- Reshape worn or short-looking teeth
- Replace a single missing tooth with one dental implant
- Protect teeth after a root canal
- Repair teeth with severe chips, cracks, and fractures
- Cover teeth with deep enamel discoloration
- Restore a tooth’s overall appearance and function
