A: Do you feel confident about your smile? Unfortunately, many people feel self-conscious, or even embarrassed, about their teeth. Over time, the beauty of our smiles can become hindered with unsightly teeth stains, misalignment and other esthetic imperfections. In fact, the desire for a beautiful smile is so strong that every year Americans spend more than $1.4 billion on over-the-counter teeth whiteners. For obtaining a gorgeous smile, Dr. Erika Peddicord recommends cosmetic dentistry.
Q: What is cosmetic dentistry?
A: With cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Peddicord will perform one or more procedures designed to improve the appearance of your teeth. Cosmetic treatment often runs the gamut from conservative to extensive, depending on the patient’s dental health. Working with a professional, as opposed to using store-bought whitening treatments, helps ensure stunning and long lasting results.
The road to a beautiful new smile begins with a consultation. During your visit, Dr. Peddicord will discuss your smile goals and examine your teeth. She will then assess the cause and severity of your cosmetic issues, recommending the most appropriate cosmetic techniques. Our cosmetic treatments include teeth whitening, tooth bonding, tooth contouring and porcelain veneers.
