Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures in Wilmington, DE

  • Teeth Whitening: Teeth whitening brightens and whitens the appearance of your smile in a fast and powerful procedure. During the hour-long treatment, your dentist applies a whitening gel to the teeth and directs a specialized light toward the mouth to aid in the whitening process. Afterward, your teeth will be noticeably lighter and brighter, with results varying from subtle to dramatic based on your preferences.
  • Crowns and Bridgework: Dental crowns cover a damaged, repaired, or otherwise weakened tooth to help protect it from future damage. Bridgework replaces missing teeth by bridging the gap between two healthy teeth. The bridge, held in place by dental crowns on either end, replaces the tooth above the gum line.
  • Invisalign: Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that allows you to subtly and dramatically correct your smile to straighten the teeth and correct bite issues. Rather than using the traditional metal brackets and wires, Invisalign’s clear plastic trays will slowly move the teeth into their new positions using carefully applied yet gentle pressure.
  • Dental Implants: Dental implants revive your missing teeth by replacing the tooth itself and its root. The implant lies directly in the bone beneath your missing tooth, staying in place permanently.
  • Cosmetic Fillings: Cosmetic fillings restore a decayed tooth by removing the decayed portion of the tooth’s enamel and replacing it with tooth-colored composite resin materials.
  • Veneers: Dental veneers fit over the tooth’s surface to cover its blemishes and revive its appearance. Veneers can change the shape, length, width, and color of a tooth, allowing for a truly versatile result.
