Porcelain Veneers

Are your teeth so flawed that you wish you could just hit a “reset” button? With veneers, you essentially can! Veneers are thin porcelain coverings that are fitted over your teeth to give your smile a whole new look. Whether your teeth are chipped, cracked, discolored, misshapen, or even slightly gapped, veneers can transform practically any smile into a gorgeous work of art.

Metal-Free Dental Crowns

For decades, getting a dental crown on a front tooth meant that you’d have to say goodbye to a natural-looking smile as you had an instantly noticeable piece of metal placed over your tooth. At East Center Dental, that’s not the case! We provide more aesthetically friendly crowns made from tooth-colored EMAX, zirconia, and porcelain, allowing us to repair your tooth without anyone being able to tell the difference!

Gum Recontouring

When you smile, do your gums take center stage instead of your teeth? This is called a “gummy smile,” and it can make your overall grin appear lopsided. Luckily, Dr. Rudolph can address this common problem in just one appointment. Using precise, highly advanced instruments, he can comfortably remove excess gum tissue to reveal more of the underlying tooth enamel. As a result, you’ll have a more balanced and confident grin.

Virtual Smile Design

Not only will you be sure you’re making the right decision, but you’ll also be excited for what’s to come!

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Are you unhappy with your smile? If you want to turn your pearly whites into a set you can flash with confidence, you may be interested in cosmetic dentistry in Warsaw, especially after reading the information above. Of course, you likely want to get some more information to determine whether it’s right for you. For your convenience, we’ve decided to answer some frequently asked questions below. Should you not find what you’re looking for, don’t hesitate to reach out for personal assistance.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Safe?

Yes, cosmetic dentistry is generally considered safe when administered under the care of a trained professional. However, not every treatment is right for every patient. During your consultation, Dr. Rudolph will examine your mouth to determine which procedures are best for your specific oral health needs.

If you have underlying issues that haven’t been addressed, some cosmetic services may pose a risk to your health. For example, placing a veneer over a decayed tooth could make it more difficult to treat later on. That’s why we’ll create a plan to address such problems before starting a procedure.

How Do I Know I Need Cosmetic Dentistry?

Here are some key points to consider in order to determine if you may benefit from cosmetic dentistry:

  • If you're not completely satisfied or confident with the appearance of your smile when you look in the mirror, cosmetic dentistry may be a suitable option for you.
  • Over-the-counter whitening products may not be effective for severe staining or discoloration. In such cases, professional whitening can be more successful in achieving the desired results.
  • Damaged teeth, whether chipped or cracked, can expose the inner layers to harmful bacteria. It's important to address any damage to your teeth promptly. Dr. Rudolph can recommend options like veneers, crowns, or other procedures to protect and restore the tooth.
  • A bright, vibrant smile is often associated with youthfulness. Cosmetic dentistry can help rejuvenate your grin, potentially making you appear younger by taking years off your overall appearance.

Ultimately, the best way to determine if you could benefit from cosmetic dentistry is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rudolph. He can evaluate your specific situation and recommend the most suitable procedures to achieve the changes you desire.

Does Cosmetic Dentistry Hurt?

Many patients are hesitant to pursue cosmetic dentistry because they’re worried it’ll be painful. Well, don’t worry – Dr. Rudolph knows this and will do everything possible to make your treatment experience comfortable.

The good news is that most cosmetic dental treatments are non-invasive (i.e., teeth whitening). It shouldn’t even require local anesthetic! For services that require your tooth to be reshaped (i.e., veneers), Dr. Rudolph will numb your mouth beforehand to minimize discomfort. You may experience lingering soreness and sensitivity for the next few days, but it should be mild and temporary.

How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Change Your Life?

It may seem frivolous to address aesthetic imperfections in your teeth, but it can actually improve several different aspects of your life. Having an attractive grin can lead to better oral hygiene, namely because you’ll want to preserve your results. As such, you might also be motivated to quit smoking and consuming dark-colored beverages. When you’re proud of your teeth, you’ll show it off more often, which can lower stress by causing your body to produce feel-good chemicals called endorphins.
