When you catch a glimpse of your smile in the mirror, are you dismayed by obvious discoloration or damage? You don’t have to let your grin’s imperfections cause your self-esteem to decline. Instead, let us give you a beautiful, custom-tailored smile that has all the traits that you want. With veneers, teeth whitening, direct bonding, and many other options for cosmetic dentistry from our Burien, WA dentist, we’re able to correct a wide variety of smile flaws so you no longer have to feel embarrassed when you let your excitement or happiness show.
If you’re unhappy with your smile for a variety of reasons, like staining, gaps, chips, and cracks, then veneers may be a great solution to enhance your grin. This treatment is incredibly versatile and can address all of the imperfections listed above, plus more. Each veneer is custom-crafted for an individual tooth. They’re thin, durable shields that fit over the visible portion of your teeth to conceal flaws and create a complete and beautiful smile.
Lumineers are able to provide similar results as porcelain veneers, and we typically recommend them to patients who don’t want to commit to veneers. With veneers, a small portion of your enamel will need to be removed to accommodate the thickness of the restorations. If you get Lumineers, no alteration of your permanent teeth is necessary because they’re so thin. This allows us to bond them directly to your natural teeth to conceal flaws.
At Seahurst Park Dentistry of Burien, we offer metal-free restorations so you won’t have to choose between having a beautiful or healthy smile. We offer zirconia and E-MAX dental crowns that mimic the natural appearance of enamel while still being extremely durable . Our metal-free restorations are also safer on the gums and won’t cause issues like dental sensitivity or permanent discoloration like traditional crowns and fillings.
Did you break or chip a tooth, leaving your smile looking unsymmetrical? Direct bonding is a cost-effective, fast, and completely natural-looking cosmetic solution that can restore the original appearance of damaged teeth. Dr. Thomas will use a putty-like composite resin to reform the missing portion of your tooth. After curing and texturizing it, the resin will be virtually indistinguishable from the existing tooth structure, providing it with protection from further harm while also making your smile look complete.
If you’re tired of using store-bought teeth whitening products that always make big promises but never deliver, our professional take-home teeth whitening kit is perfect for you. It contains customized whitening trays and a highly concentrated bleaching gel to provide you with noticeable results in as little as two weeks. Plus, you won’t have to worry about our gel being bad for your teeth, because we only use products that have been extensively tested and proven to be safe.
If you want straighter teeth but dislike the idea of getting traditional braces, ask us about clear aligners. This subtle and convenient treatment can gradually shift your teeth into their proper positions — all without the use of annoying brackets and wires. All you have to do is wear the aligners for 20 – 22 hours each day and follow other easy treatment instructions. Within a matter of months, you should begin to notice results.
