Southdale Dental Associates offers cosmetic dentistry procedures for improved smiles.
EDINA, MN, September 26, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Dr. James D. Raymond, an Eden Prairie cosmetic dentist from Southdale Dental Associates, recently announced the availability of cosmetic dentistry to their Eden Prairie/Bloomington area practice. Cosmetic dentistry is defined as "The branch of dentistry dealing with the appearance of teeth". There are many dental products and procedures available in the cosmetic dentistry field.
Tooth whitening is one of the most popular procedures performed by Eden Prairie dentists today. With the easy availability of over the counter products and the numerous professional whitening options its prominence is understandable. While over the counter products do whiten teeth, procedures done by a cosmetic dentist tend to have much longer lasting results.
Straightening is another very commonly requested service with Bloomington cosmetic dentists. Even people who had braces as a child can experience shifting that can lead to the development of misaligned teeth in adulthood due to changes in the mouth and gums. With the many recent advances in tooth straightening options, including Invisalign, tooth straightening has become a lot more popular in the adult population.
Veneers and bonding are used to correct a myriad of cosmetic issues. Severe staining or discoloration due to age, chipped, broken or misshaped teeth, gaps in teeth or worn down teeth that have become too small in appearance are a few conditions that veneers and bonding can fix. Veneers require a thin, porcelain, tooth-shaped layer to be bonded over the front face of the teeth, where bonding involves brushing a resin composite substance over the teeth, curing it, and carefully shaping it to match the patient's mouth and other teeth.
The results bonding or veneers provide are stunning, and the Eden Prairie cosmetic dentists at Southside Dental Associates are experts at both procedures. Because a layer of enamel must be removed from the front of the teeth, however, veneers and bonding are irreversible procedures and should be reserved for those who have no other options.
When only a few teeth become uneven or misshaped, contouring and reshaping is a viable alternative to full veneers. This pain-free procedure can usually be completed in one visit to the Eden Prairie cosmetic dentist, and the results are quite remarkable.
Gingivectomy and crown lengthening are cosmetic procedures that correct a condition known as "gummy smile". Although not a dental health issue, gummy smiles can be aesthetically unpleasing or embarrassing. Cosmetic dentists in Bloomington can correct this issue with a gingivectomy, which involves removing excess gum tissue and reshaping the gum line. Sometimes a small portion of the upper or lower jawbone is also removed to expose more of the teeth, which is called crown lengthening. Both procedures have quick recovery times and patients are overwhelmingly satisfied with the dramatic results.
Dr. Raymond and the rest of the Eden Prairie cosmetic dentist team at Southdale Dental Associates would be happy to discuss these and other cosmetic procedures with you.
