Cosmetic Dentistry in Charlottesville, VA
As your trusted cosmetic dentist in Charlottesville, VA, Dr. Harrison takes the time to understand your cosmetic goals for your smile. He also ensures that any treatment he provides is also for the betterment of your dental health. At Harrison Dental Associates, our goal is to provide you with a healthy and beautiful smile. Cosmetic treatment plans may include any of the following dental services:
A discreet alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign is one of our most popular dental services. Patients often request Invisalign because of the many benefits it offers. Made of clear, plastic material, Invisalign aligners make straightening crooked or misaligned teeth easier than ever.
Patients simply wear invisible aligners throughout their treatment duration, only removing them to eat, drink, or brush their teeth. The aligners apply slight pressure to your teeth which will, over time, encourage them to shift into a straighter position. No more metallic brackets and wires, dietary restrictions, or oral hygiene hazards. Invisalign is here to help patients suffering from mild to moderate orthodontic concerns.
For patients looking for a complete smile makeover, porcelain veneers are your best option. Created as frontal porcelain caps that attach to your tooth’s surface and conceal any and all blemishes, porcelain veneers take a “your smile but better” approach to cosmetic dentistry.
If you have irregular-shaped or gapped teeth, porcelain veneers can conceal these blemishes and replace them with beautiful teeth. Unlike a dental crown, the dentist only secures porcelain veneers to the outer facing portion of your tooth. This means they only require slight enamel removal.
Minor chips or cracks can drastically affect the cosmetic appeal of your smile. Luckily, tooth bonding is one of the most effective and cost-efficient methods of tooth repair. As long as the damage is not too deep into your tooth, small damages can be repaired using dental bonding material similar to that used during a dental filling.
The dentist applies tooth-colored resin over any small blemishes to conceal and restore your tooth. It also hides any stubborn stains that cannot be removed by teeth whitening.
Over the years, many people will experience a dulling or discoloration with their smiles. This is caused by staining agents that are in common foods and beverages that we consume on a daily basis. Because of this, our office offers teeth whitening solutions. Whether you are interested in an at-home teeth whitening kit or an in-office teeth whitening session, Dr. Harrison is happy to provide you with whatever teeth whitening solution best meets your needs.
