Cosmetic Dentistry

There is no reason to hide your smile because you are embarrassed by your teeth. At First Dental Associates, our top-notch Reading, MA dentist provide cosmetic dentistry optionsĀ that will give you a smile you love to show off. Here are some of our cosmetic dentistry treatment options:

Snap-On Smile

Here at First Dental Associates, we are a Preferred Provider for Snap-on Smile, which means we have more training and experience in fixing smiles with Snap-On Smile. These beautiful tooth coverings will solve multiple cosmetic dentistry issues by literally snapping into place over your natural teeth.

Dental Veneers and Crowns

There are other types of tooth coverings that will address unsightly gaps, chips, and discoloration. For instance, dental veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells that bond to the front of the tooth, covering cosmetic flaws. In addition to traditional porcelain veneers, which require minimum preparation, we provide e.max veneers, which are made from a high-end ceramic that most closely resembles your natural teeth.

A dental crown is different from veneers in that it covers the entire tooth, usually after a root canal or some other restorative procedure. Like veneers, crowns are typically made from porcelain, but at First Dental Associates, you have the option for zirconium crowns, which are stronger and more natural looking.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures in Massachusetts. It is hard to avoid some tooth discoloration, even if you take wonderful care of your teeth. Simple wear and tear will reduce your layer of enamel, thus yellowing your teeth.

For your convenience, we offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments. Sapphire and Lumibrite are available for in-office treatments, while LumiSmile and Crest Whitestrips Professional Whitening are available for take-home solutions. With all these choices, you are certain to find a teeth whitening solution that works for you.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

One of the biggest drawbacks to having a cavity repaired is the silver amalgam fillings that make the dental work obvious. Although amalgam fillings are safe and effective, they are not aesthetically pleasing. That is why our Reading, MA dentist at First Dental Associates offers tooth-colored composite fillings as an alternative. These fillings blend in with the natural color of your teeth, which is especially useful when one of your front teeth needs a filling.

Invisalign Invisible Braces

Straightening misaligned teeth is another important cosmetic dentistry procedure, but traditional braces can be very unappealing for many people, especially adults and older teenagers. However, Invisalign offers an alternative to the metal brackets and wires commonly associated with teeth straightening. These clear tooth coverings will gently move your teeth into alignment in less time and with less hassle than traditional braces.

Cosmetic Composite Bonding

Dental bonding can be used to fix chipped or fractured teeth, as well as fill in gaps between teeth. For this process, a tooth-colored composite resin is used to sculpt and shape the cosmetic flaws away. Bonding can be used on its own to fix minor cosmetic issues, or along with other treatments, like Invisalign or teeth bleaching, for more significant problems.

As you can see, there is no shortage of solutions for your cosmetic dentistry needs at First Dental Associates. Call our trusted Reading, MA dentist atĀ 781-435-7290 today to schedule an appointment, or simply fill out our online form and one of our associates will contact you.
