Cosmetic Dentistry

aurora cosmetic dentistry
General dentistry refers to the dental care you need to keep your teeth and gums healthy, clean, and strong. Cosmetic dentistry refers to an array of customized dental treatments and procedures that are tasked with improving the appearance of your teeth and gums. At Pioneer Hills Dental, our cosmetic dentistry goals are to not only give you the appearance of a healthy, beautiful smile, but to ensure that your mouth is a healthy as it looks.

Dr. Terrance Wolbaum has been working to improve the beautiful smiles of visitors for years, and this foundation of experience allows him to create custom solutions for each visitor.  The team at Pioneer Hills Dental can design a combination of procedures that provides you with a sparkling smile while fitting your budget constraints.

Porcelain Veneers and Bonding

If you are not confident or happy with your smile, porcelain veneers are a great way to take care of several issues at once without spending undue time in the dentist’s chair.  A veneer works as a shell for a damaged or badly stained tooth.   Pioneer Hills Dental  has helped many Colorado men and women improve their smiles with this easy, natural-looking cosmetic dentistry solution. Each custom piece restores the shape and color of the tooth permanently.  Veneers are a great aesthetic solution to your smile that may even help you avoid orthodontic treatment. The thin wafer of porcelain can hide a chipped incisor or fill in a gap between two teeth. Subtle changes to your smile can be achieved with veneers, and in most cases, veneer application is completed in only two office visits. For quick reinforcement of a cracked tooth, try bonding. We apply a mixture of quartz and resin to give your teeth a sparkling white finish that also stabilizes them if there is any damage.

Dental Implants And Implant-Supported Dentures

Missing teeth are perhaps the most noticeable and difficult obstacle to a beautiful smile. If you have one or more missing teeth, the Aurora implant dentistry team at Pioneer Hills Dental can show you how dental implants can solve your problem permanently.  For tooth replacement,  a custom-designed dental implant offers you the best natural, durable solution available today.   If you have a gap in your smile due to a missing tooth, a dental implant is the best way to replace it. An anchor of titanium is embedded in the bone below the gum to create a base that holds a replacement tooth that is indistinguishable from the rest of your teeth.

We can also install the same anchoring implants to stabilize your dentures for a set of teeth that won’t budge, but that are still easy to remove for cleaning and repairs.

Teeth Whitening

If you are interested in whitening your smile, consult with Dr. Wolbaum so you can determine together if your gums and supporting bone structure are healthy enough for teeth whitening.  Dentist-supervised treatments provide greater tooth whitening results faster than store bought kits.  At Pioneer Hills Dental, two types of treatment are available:

  • A 45-minute,  in-office treatment which, on the average, whitens teeth 5-10 shades
  • An easy Pioneer Hills Dental take-home kit which contains a higher concentration of whitening agent than a store-bought kit.  We’ll create custom trays and provide you with prescription-strength gel so you can safely remove stains and yellowing from your teeth in the privacy of your own home.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will it be expensive to improve my smile?
A: We offer many affordable options to help you find a solution that fits your budget. If you are getting veneers or bonding to repair a damaged tooth, your insurance may cover the costs.

Q: Isn’t cosmetic dentistry just for movie stars?
A: Everyone can benefit from the self-esteem boost that comes with a more attractive smile. If you are not comfortable revealing your pearly whites for photos, you may find a new sense of confidence after teeth whitening or straightening.

Q: Are these procedures painful?
A: Veneers and bonding do not cause any pain because they are simply cemented to the exterior of the tooth. We perform more extensive procedures, like the installation of dental implants, with plenty of local anesthesia.

Q: Will the results last?
A: With proper care, your cosmetic results will last for decades with only minor maintenance work from our team.

Q: Can children use Invisalign instead of braces?
A: Teens above the age of 14 and adults can use Invisalign, but the company does not recommend it for children because their teeth are still developing and settling into their final positions.
