Cosmetic dentistry improves the appearance of your smile. It corrects aesthetic concerns you’d like to address, such as stains, crowding, or missing teeth.
Cosmetic procedures are elective, but some reduce the risk of dental complications. For example, straightening crooked teeth with braces makes them easier to clean and care for.
Dr. Geller offers various cosmetic dentistry services, including:
Teeth whitening minimizes the appearance of stains and discoloration. Dr. Geller provides in-office teeth whitening as well as take-home teeth whitening trays. After a review of your dental records and a discussion of your goals, he can recommend a whitening treatment that aligns with your needs.
Veneers are shells of porcelain bonded to the front of your permanent teeth. Dr. Geller uses veneers to cover minor oral imperfections, like chips, spaces, stains, and discoloration. With routine checkups and good oral hygiene, veneers last 12-15* years on average.
Dental implants are titanium posts that replace your permanent teeth. They fuse with your jawbone, providing a base for crowns, bridges, or implant-retained overdentures. Dr. Geller has over 30 years of experience placing and restoring dental implants.
A dental crown is a cap bonded on top of a damaged or decaying tooth. After the bonding material dries, the crown restores your tooth to its near-original size, shape, and appearance, allowing you to bite and chew.
If you’ve lost a permanent tooth due to trauma or extraction, Dr. Geller might recommend a dental bridge. A bridge is a restoration that features an artificial tooth. The prosthesis fills the space where your tooth used to be, restoring your smile to its near-original condition.
Dentures are removable appliances that replace your permanent teeth and the surrounding tissues. Dr. Geller offers several types of dentures, including complete, partial, and implant-retained overdentures.
If you have a malpositioned jaw or an abnormal bite, Dr. Geller might prescribe orthodontics. Orthodontics is a dental subspecialty that uses brackets, archwires, and rubber bands to improve the position of your teeth, jaw, or bite.
To determine the type of cosmetic dentistry that’s right for you, Dr. Geller asks about your goals, reviews your dental records, and conducts an oral exam. After gathering the necessary information, he makes treatment recommendations that align with your budget and needs.
