Turn on the television to nearly any station and you're likely to see a bright, beautiful smile on any number of celebrities and reality TV stars. With television shows like "Extreme Makeover" continuing to increase in popularity, the public has become more interested in cosmetic dentistry and more aware of its accessibility; though the people we see in movies and TV all have perfect smiles, that doesn't mean cosmetic dentistry is a luxury only celebrities can enjoy. Cosmetic dentistry is not as expensive as most people think, and many procedures are even covered by insurance.
Cosmetic dentistry can refer to a host of dental procedures that are designed to enhance one's smile by correcting flaws such as chipped, cracked, discolored or gapped teeth. Patients can benefit from a variety of cosmetic dentistry solutions such as porcelain veneers or tooth-colored fillings. Whatever the case, the end result is help our patients finally enjoy that beautiful movie-star smile they've always dreamed about.
Cosmetic dentistry is changing the face (and the smile) of dental care to provide patients from all walks of life with fabulous as well as functional smiles. Modern dental health means more than just healthy gums and teeth; a brighter, more beautiful smile can improve your self-esteem and make you more confident, which can in turn lead to greater success in your social life and career.
Cosmetic Dentist Sarasota: What We Do
After carefully assessing your needs and goals, your Sarasota dentist will explain the many different options and techniques available to help you reach your perfect smile:
Teeth Whitening: Looking for a brilliant smile that reflects the true you? Whiter teeth and brighter smiles are no longer reserved for the glamorous "elite." A number of teeth whitening options allow you to choose how you want to whiten your teeth, from in-office laser teeth whitening sessions to at-home teeth bleaching kits.
Porcelain Veneers: Custom-fit, completely natural-looking shells are applied to the front of your natural teeth. These smooth, beautiful veneers cover cracks, chips and overlay gaps, creating a beautiful, lustrous smile.
REAL PATIENT REVIEW
"Dr. Koval is an excellent dentist who does beautiful dentistry- I still love my veneers 9 years later- looks like the day she put them in! That is also why I work for her - she's very compassionate and cares about her family of patients." Rachelle Dental hygienist
Going for any length of time with missing teeth can be inconvenient, painful and limiting. On top of that, it's embarrassing! Dental implants are an innovative restorative solution that will get your smile back to where you want it to be. In this cosmetic procedure, artificial roots are embedded in the patient's jaw, and a prosthetic tooth is attached to the root. These permanent dental implant solutions will bring back both the function and the appearance of your real teeth. Caring for dental implants is as easy as keeping up with oral hygiene habits and regularly visiting your dentist. Sarasota residents can contact Koval & Koval Dental Associates to learn more about this permanent solution to missing teeth.
In this procedure, a tooth-colored composite is applied directly to the patient's teeth. The bonding material is then shaped and polished until it matches with the rest of your teeth, creating a natural, seamless smile.
Modern tooth fillings utilize a new and innovative composite resin material that matches the natural shade of your teeth. These tooth-colored, non-metallic fillings are a natural-looking alternative to old-fashioned silver amalgam fillings.
Teeth that are badly damaged or decayed may need to be repaired with caps. In this procedure, a crown is created using a mold of your original tooth. After the decay is removed, the new crown is applied to the tooth.
In certain cases, inlays and onlays can be an alternative to full-coverage dental crowns or fillings. Inlays and onlays are used to repair teeth that have been cracked or damaged. They offer a stronger, longer lasting, well-fitting and more attractive reparative solution to structural damage such as tooth decay.
This teeth-straightening option continues to increase in popularity. Invisalign® is an option consisting of custom transparent aligners for teeth that are misaligned, unevenly spaced, overlapping or gapped. For adults, this is a popular alternative to orthodontic braces. Like braces, invisalign® can provide stunning results in the form of a beautiful smile and a comfortable, functional bite.
