Smile Like Yourself Again: The Many Wonders of Cosmetic Dentistry

Posted .

Far too many people suffer needlessly with an imperfect smile and a corresponding, self- conscious lack of confidence. We want you to know that our office aims to restore the smile you once had or even give you the smile you have always wanted. These types of life-changing procedures are typically accomplished through the wonders of cosmetic dentistry.

Our gifted dental professionals — Dr. Anne Nicholas and her team of specialists — provide a number of cosmetic dentistry services in Palm Desert, California, that will remarkably improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile.

For instance, Dr. Nicholas and her team of specialists offer the Zoom Chairside Whitening System, which is a completely safe and effective bleaching process that lightens the discoloration of enamel and dentin. The complete procedure is simple and takes less than an hour. Dr. Nicholas and her team of specialists can assess your smile through an oral exam to determine if you would be a good candidate for Zoom teeth-whitening.

Bite correction is another important service that Dr. Nicholas and her team of specialists offer. Malocclusion (or an improper bite) is the disharmony of biting contacts. In other words, the teeth do not fit together properly when the mouth is closed. Dr. Nicholas and her team of specialists are highly trained and well qualified to remedy this problem whose repercussions can extend well beyond just being a cosmetic concern. An improper bite can lead to more severe dental problems if it’s not corrected.

Dental implants are a wonderfully effective solution for those who are missing one or more teeth. If you wish to smile, speak, and eat with confidence once again, dental implants are probably exactly what you’ve been hoping for all these years. With more than 17 years of experience, Dr. Nicholas is a veritable expert in implant dentistry. So, if you have missing teeth or your dentures aren’t very secure, we’d recommend meeting with Dr. Nicholas and her team of specialists to discuss the possibility of dental implants.

Crown-lengthening is another surgical dental procedure that can significantly improve the appearance of your smile. Dr. Nicholas and her team of specialists use crown-lengthening for a couple of important reasons: If a tooth needs to be repaired but not enough of the tooth is visible above the gum line to properly support a crown or a filling, crown-lengthening is employed. Or sometimes crown-lengthening is a relatively simple solution for addressing what’s referred to as “a gummy smile.” If the teeth appear to be “too short” because they are covered by too much gum tissue, crown-lengthening reshapes the excess gum and bone tissue to reveal more of the patient’s natural tooth.

These treatments described above are just a few of the cosmetic dental procedures that we have available for improving your smile. So, if you’d like to learn more about the wonders of cosmetic dentistry and the many various procedures that our practice offers, please contact Dr. Anne Nicholas and her team of specialists who are serving Palm Desert, La Quinta, Rancho Mirage and the surrounding areas of the Coachella Valley at the Palm Desert Center for Advanced Periodontics, Cosmetic, Sedation and Implant Dentistry.
