There’s nothing wrong with wanting the best possible smile. While some people naturally have healthy and perfectly aligned teeth, many of us are not quite so lucky. The good news is that Shine Dental Associates of the North Shore offers a wide array of cosmetic dental treatments to help you find your most brilliant smile. Whether it’s some minor whitening or major reconstructive work that needs to replace damaged teeth, we have the experience, the skills, and the friendly professionals who are eager to help you find your greatest smile.
This is a popular service and one that gets requested by many our customers. There are many reasons why a smile might lose its whiteness. Food stains, tobacco stains, age – these are just some of the many reasons that a smile will become more yellow over time. We have a variety of procedures that can replace that yellow with white and bring back the beauty of an old smile or even give you your best one yet!
Tooth whitening will work with most patients, but not necessarily all of them. Come in and see us for your free consultation and x-rays. After a brief cursory examination, we will be able to tell you what your options are and what we can do for you and your (soon to be) pearly whites!
Porcelain Crowns & Bridges
Crown and bridge work can be an excellent way to fix up broken or poor looking teeth in the right circumstances. Dental work has come a long way in recent years, and you might be surprised by just how much we can do with our dental prosthetic work. Crowns and bridges are fixed dental prosthetic devices. You can think of them as being like dentures, but these are permanent in your mouth.
Depending on the work you are getting they are either cemented onto existing teeth or implants you already have. This gives a permanent prosthetic that looks outstanding and will stand up to the test of time when done properly.
A crown is used to cover up a damaged tooth. This serves two purposes for you: it strengthens the damaged tooth, and it also can be used to improve the overall shape, alignment, and even overall appearance. While it’s possible to get these in metals, we also have realistic looking porcelain and ceramic crowns that will match the color of your natural teeth, even after whitening!
Bridges can be used to do the same thing when you’re missing one or more teeth and have gaps. You don’t need to be ashamed of your smile. In the right situation, a bridge will look great, bring stability to your jaw and the prosthetics bring a beautiful appearance to your smile.
Speak to our trained dentist and staff and let them review your options! We also have a trained specialist on staff for any difficult issues that may arise regarding your crowns and bridges.
Are your teeth healthy but just don’t have the overall whiteness or shape and form that you’re looking for? Do you ever wonder how it seems like every single Hollywood actor and actress has the perfect smile? The answer often comes in the form of cosmetic dentistry work and with the use of veneers.
Dental veneers go by several names that also include porcelain laminates, dental porcelain laminates, or porcelain veneers, but they all refer to the same thing. These are extremely ultra-thin custom-made shells that are designed to cover the front surface of teeth. They are designed to be bonded to the front of your teeth and are the color of healthy, shining, bright teeth, improving the appearance of your smile. These shells not only affect color but can also be customized to change shape, size, and length to give your smile a healthy, beautiful, and uniform appearance that will turn heads and get attention.
These are a great option for people with healthy teeth that are free of cavities and tooth decay but they are purely cosmetic, so if there are any specific tooth health issues, those need to be addressed before veneers are added over the top.
While you wait for your veneers to adhere, our modern rooms are equipped with flat-screen televisions for your comfort. Wi-Fi is also available for your enjoyment.
The way dental implants have improved and advanced in recent years is nothing short of absolutely amazing. While it was once a good rule of thumb that implants would have to be replaced every ten years or so, the modern dental implants look better and more realistic than ever and when correctly set.
Whether you are missing a single tooth or multiple teeth, our professionals can make an accurate dental cast of your mouth and use that to create implants that look great, will fit properly, and can even improve upon the appearance of the original teeth. These look like real teeth, help fill in any gaps you have in your mouth, and create a full and beautiful smile that will help you regain your confidence and enjoy the best of life once again.
Implants come in many different forms, and the cost will vary based on the number and how they need to be shaped and placed, but these are a fantastic way to take care of a major aesthetic problem many people are facing while also bringing a high functionality and support back to your teeth. We can fill in any gaps in your smile and leave you feeling like new.
We do have sedation available for family members that are anxious about their visit. We will work at your pace to keep you comfortable the entire time. We will give you the smile you always wanted!
Many of our patients who aren’t happy with their smiles aren’t aware that they might be candidates for gum contouring. If you have uneven gums or especially large gums that seem to mask a major portion of your teeth, reducing the appearance of that lovely smile, you might be a perfect candidate for laser gum contouring.
Our experienced and skilled cosmetic dentists can reshape your gum line to lengthen the appearance of your teeth, reduce the amount of gum that shows when you smile or create a more even, symmetrical, and natural looking gum line.
Our office is both sleek and modern with state of the art digital x-rays and laser technology equipment. Our trained technicians will make your smile beautiful after your laser gum contouring.
