You don’t need to be a dentist to understand the power of a confident, attractive smile. Even relatively healthy teeth can develop a variety of aesthetic flaws, ranging from stains to chips to cracks to gaps and more. If you’re ready to have a smile you’re always eager to show off, the team at Carefree Dentistry is ready to give it to you using our wide selection of cosmetic services. Your dream smile is much closer than you might think—schedule a consultation today to learn more about your options for cosmetic dentistry in Phoenix, AZ!
A veneer is a thin sheathe of dental porcelain we can apply to the front of a tooth to enhance its appearance in every way you can imagine. With this simple treatment, we can improve the shape, size, color, and spacing of any number of teeth, completely transforming the smile in as little as two appointments. Veneers can even be used to help slightly crooked teeth appear straight, which is why dentists often refer to them as “instant orthodontics.”
Traditionally, crowns are used to repair severely damaged and decayed teeth, but thanks to advancements in dental materials, we can now use them for cosmetic purposes as well. Restorations made of 100% dental porcelain perfectly mimic real enamel, and they can be placed over misshapen or undersized teeth to give the entire smile a more uniform appearance. With these crowns, the only people who will know you’ve had dental work done will be you and your dentist!
Fast, easy, and effective, nothing is better for quick fixes than direct bonding. In as little as an hour, your dentist can apply a color-matched composite resin to a small chip, stain, or crack, and then artfully sculpt it to make the imperfection disappear. The resin is then hardened and polished, resulting in a flawless, natural-looking tooth. While the procedure itself is short, the results are designed to last, enduring for about 10 years in most cases.
Getting a dramatically brighter smile is easy when you partner with Carefree Dentistry. We offer Zoom! in-office whitening for patients who want to make their teeth six to eight shades brighter in as little as an hour. It’s perfect for people who want to look great for a special event that is just around the corner! Or, for those with more flexible schedules, we can send someone home with an Opalescence kit. This combines custom mouth trays with a bleaching gel multiple times stronger than anything you can buy on your own, allowing you to whiten your smile whenever and wherever you want!
Have you wanted to straighten your teeth for years, but you’ve avoided doing so because you didn’t want to be stuck with metal braces? With Invisalign, you can get the beautifully straight smile you’ve always wanted using a series of virtually invisible trays. They’re able to fix a wide array of issues including crooked, crowded, and gapped teeth while allowing a patient to maintain their normal daily appearance. Invisalign is removable as well, so patients can maintain their regular diet and brushing habits during treatment!
Sometimes, the issue someone has with their smile has nothing to do with their teeth, but rather the gums. Too much gum tissue can cause the smile to look out of balance, making the teeth appear too short and stubby. We can use a diode laser to painlessly remove any excess tissue so the teeth appear longer and fuller. This may also serve as an important first step before placing a veneer or crown, ensuring the restoration has enough room to adequately fit.
Before you commit to any cosmetic treatment, we can give you a preview of the results using digital imaging. We’ll take a picture of your current smile and edit it to show you how you’ll look after getting whitening, veneers, or any other procedure you’re thinking about. Once you like what you see in the simulated “after” image, we can get to work turning it into your real-world smile!
