Germantown’s Premier Cosmetic Dentist
We partner with our patients in creating their perfect smile. Yes, “perfect smile” is a subjective phrase, but we think you will agree when you experience for yourself the life-changing benefits of top-notch cosmetic dentistry. We’ve included a list of our most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures below for your convenience.
Porcelain veneers are an excellent treatment option for patients who are unsatisfied with the appearance of their smiles. These thin, porcelain shells are affixed to the front of your natural teeth, instantly creating a new smile. Porcelain is a translucent material that mimics the look of natural tooth enamel. Veneers cover stains, chips, and cracks, and they can even improve the look of overly spaced or worn-down teeth. We can give you veneers in as few as two visits. With proper care, this revolutionary treatment can last 10 years or more.
Porcelain Crowns/Inlays and Onlays
Porcelain crowns are individual restorations that fully cover your tooth. Crowns fit upon your natural tooth, covering all of its surfaces and restoring its functionality. We create porcelain crowns that are matched in size, shape, and color to your smile, so they are indistinguishable from your adjacent natural teeth. Inlays and onlays are smaller restorations than crowns that restore the bite surface of a patient’s tooth. Sometimes called indirect fillings, these restorations are made in a laboratory to fit snugly within your smile.
We provide two teeth whitening options to brighten your smile quickly in our office, or in the comfort of your own home. Dr. Cooley can help you determine if take-home or in-office whitening is best for your budget and schedule. Our in-office whitening treatment, Philips Zoom! WhiteSpeed®, takes about an hour, and offers instantaneous results. When you select an in-office whitening treatment, you also receive a take-home kit to maintain your results. Our take-home whitening kits are Philips Zoom! DayWhiteÂ® and NiteWhiteÂ® for comfortable day or nighttime whitening.
A smile makeover describes the combination of more than one dental procedure into a comprehensive plan that improves the look of your smile. We can create a smile makeover plan that addresses your unique needs while taking into account your budget, schedule, and personal goals. Your smile makeover may include porcelain veneer application, teeth whitening, all-porcelain crowns, laser gum reshaping, or any other treatments that help you achieve the look you want and increase your confidence in your daily life.
Laser Gum Reshaping
Excess or uneven gum tissue can taint the appearance of an otherwise beautiful smile. Using laser gum reshaping, we remove excess tissue for patients with “gummy” smiles and recontour an asymmetrical gum line. Because we uses a precision laser, we can very conservatively remove your tissues until your gums are even and beautiful. Laser tools cauterize your gums immediately so you will have very minimal, if any, bleeding following treatment and shortened healing time compared with a traditional metal blade reshaping. This treatment is often done in conjunction with teeth whitening or porcelain veneer placement for a more dramatic cosmetic improvement.
