4 cosmetic dental procedures available with Dr. James A. Oshetski
- Posted on: Feb 14 2020
At the practice of Dr. James A. Oshetski, patients in and around the Brunswick, ME community can obtain quality care with a team of professionals. In addition to general dentistry solutions including routine evaluations, x-rays, and dental fillings, our team also provides a wide selection of cosmetic dentistry options for the smile. Cosmetic dental procedures focus on enhancing the appearance of the smile while maintaining function and purpose. Below are the four cosmetic dental procedures patients can consider when they visit his practice:
• Porcelain veneers – patients who have imperfections near the front of the smile may want to disguise these issues using porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are ceramic facings that are custom-made and bonded in place to change the appearance of the smile. These restorations are strictly cosmetic and are not covered by dental insurance plans.
• Professional-grade teeth whitening – while many drugstores offer over-the-counter whitening products to enhance natural tooth enamel, many of these fall short of providing similar results to professional-grade whitening options. Dr. James A. Oshetski is pleased to offer whitening options that exceed our patients’ expectations.
• Dental bonding – imperfections of the smile, including gapped, broken, or stained teeth, can also be improved by using composite resin materials referred to as dental bonding. Dental bonding is a clay-like material that Dr. James A. Oshetski can mold into place over a tooth and cure using a specialized light. This material mimics the appearance of natural tooth enamel and can be completed in just one visit.
• Tooth replacement options – patients who have lost or extracted teeth that need to be replaced are urged to ask our team about restorative treatment options available to them. Our practice offers several solutions including the placement of dentures, dental bridges, or dental implants. In some situations, a patient who is missing all of their upper and/or lower teeth may consider combining their dentures with dental implants for better stabilization, strength, and function.
