At Woodland Lakes Dental Studio, we can help you keep your teeth and your smile looking amazing. Dr. Gabriel Polo specializes in cosmetic dentistry, which allows you to take years off your smile and keep you feeling like a million bucks.

What is cosmetic dentistry?

If you’re like most people in the world, you weren’t blessed with perfect, white teeth. Unfortunately, your smile is usually one of the features that helps to give you confidence when meeting people or making lifelong memories. Cosmetic dentistry can help you obtain the beautiful teeth that you’ve always wished for.

The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to help fix all the imperfections in your teeth, including their shape, color, or alignment. Some of the options we offer are:

Steps to a confident smile

Sometimes your everyday oral care routine just isn’t enough to give you a bright, confident smile. Although brushing and flossing are very important to the health of your teeth, they can’t always restore years of stains or imperfections. That’s where we can help. Here are four steps that we offer to get you a smile you can be proud to show off:

1. Veneers

With veneers, you don’t have to worry about a chip in your tooth or any other imperfections you have. Veneers are a thin covering for your teeth that’s made out of porcelain. 

They can give you a whiter smile and also fix worn down teeth or teeth that aren’t shaped properly. These shells fit over the front part of your teeth, giving you a stunning smile.

2. Teeth whitening

Coffee, tea, and wine can leave your pearly whites looking old and stained. Instead of giving up the things you love, why not get regular teeth whitening treatments for a dazzling smile? 

We offer professional teeth whitening services both in the office and at home. The benefit to using our whitening options is that we use a stronger bleach solution, which whitens your teeth much quicker than store-bought trays. 

3. Invisalign®

Crooked or gapped teeth can leave you with a lot of anxiety when it comes to your smile. Braces can fix your smile, but leave you with a lot of exposed metal in your mouth that can keep you from showing off your progress. That’s where Invisalign can help. 

Invisalign straightens your teeth with a progression of clear aligners that are fitted to you. Every couple of weeks you switch to a new aligner, getting you the beautiful smile you’ve hoped for.

4. Bonding

If you’re on a budget, dental bonding may be the solution for you. This process uses a resin-like material to fill in gaps, cavities, or chips in your teeth. We can match the exact color of your teeth so that the bonded area blends in smoothly with the rest of your smile. 

Bonding can usually be done in one visit, which means your smile will look amazing as soon as you leave the office.

Cosmetic dentistry can do a lot of things for your smile, but it can’t replace the basic oral care that your mouth needs. Brushing at least twice a day is vital for healthy teeth and gums. It helps to break down the plaque and germs that can wreak havoc on your oral hygiene. 

Flossing should also be done every day to ensure your smile stays beautiful and vibrant.
