Personalized Service and Great Results
Many people are born with a less-than-bright or beautiful smile. Knowing your options and finding the cosmetic dental solution that’s right for you and your budget can be a challenge. The team at Chris Wolberg, DDS, and Associates will consult with you about the full range of available services to give you a smile you’ll be eager to share.
Some of our popular cosmetic dental treatments include the following:
- Teeth Whitening
While you may see DIY teeth whitening kits in retail stores, partnering with a cosmetic dentist Richmond, VA gives you faster, longer-lasting results. Our dentists will tell you if your teeth will respond to the whitening process. If your teeth have a yellow, brown, or grey tone, whitening may not effectively brighten your smile.
You can complete teeth whitening in the office or at home with our dentist’s supervision. The in-office procedure happens in 1 visit; the at-home process may take a few weeks. Both approaches use a bleach mixture to break down stains and whiten your teeth.
Veneers are another cosmetic procedure that improves smiles. Our cosmetic dentist team in Richmond, VA, may recommend veneers if you have:
- teeth with visible chips or cracks
- gaps between teeth
- lack of uniformity in teeth shape
- an uneven smile
Veneers are thin porcelain shells- about as thick as a fingernail that we bond directly to the tooth. We custom-create each set of veneers to match your natural tooth color.
- Removable Braces
If your teeth have minor misalignment and you are looking for a less-visible alternative to traditional metal braces, removable braces may be right for you.
The process uses multiple sets of clear aligner trays to straighten your teeth. You only remove the trays to eat, drink, or clean your teeth. You’ll wear each set for about two weeks, then shift to a new one, continuing until your dentist determines your teeth align properly. While many people find removable braces more convenient to wear, this option is more expensive than metal braces.
- Crowns, Bridges, and Implants
We recommend crowns to cover a damaged or worn tooth. A bridge is a restorative procedure to replace missing teeth. If possible, we anchor the bridge to other healthy teeth. If the teeth supporting the bridge aren’t healthy, we may crown them before creating the bridge. Another cosmetic dentistry solution to fill a gap from a missing tooth is an implant. The implant consists of a metal post that we then crown. Unlike a bridge, an implant doesn’t rely on other teeth for support.
