You want to change your smile. Enamel stains and a chipped front tooth embarrass you. Increase your self-confidence by selecting a superior cosmetic dentist in Monroe, Dr. L. King Scott. He offers many aesthetic dental services to produce your best smile.
What a Cosmetic Dentist Does
A fellow with the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Scott offers outstanding cosmetic dental services focused on individual patient goals and lifelike aesthetic makeovers. From natural-looking, feeling and functioning crown and bridge to dentures to professional teeth whitening, Dr. Scott remodels smiles so patients are truly happy.
How Should Your Smile Change?
As a cosmetic dentistry patient, tell Dr. Scott what bothers you about your smile and how you want it to change. Are teeth gapped or overlapping? Do stains mar the front of your mouth? Are teeth unevenly worn or cracked?
While Dr. Scott encourages realistic expectations for a smile makeover, he does change very damaged smiles with wonderful results. Modern imaging and complete dental exams ensure oral health first and foremost, and then comprehensive treatment plans address aesthetic needs according to patient desire and budget. Even small changes truly impact appearance and self-esteem.
The Cosmetic Dentistry Process
Cosmetic dentists offer what’s called a “smile analysis.” During this comprehensive consultation, the doctor explains his findings and treatment plan. Frequently, makeovers contain one or more of these dental treatments:
Professional teeth whitening Performed as an at-home treatment, Opalescence and LifeLike teeth whitening really brighten enamel stained by coffee, dark foods, smoking and simple age. Yellowed teeth brighten most easily, says Dr. Scott, as the patient applies safe bleaching gel via customized acrylic trays. The gel whitens teeth by several shades, without residual tooth or gum sensitivity. Trays are reusable, and touch-ups keep smiles white indefinitely.

Composite resin bonding This blending of porcelain and acrylic repairs chips, cracks, and gaps. It smooths pits and minor crowding. Strong and tooth-colored, composite resin matches natural tooth color. Your dentist applies and shapes the resin to achieve a beautiful finish.
Porcelain veneers by Velspath or Empress These custom-made, whisper-thin shells of ceramic cover the front side of stained or oddly shaped and cracked teeth. Strengthening enamel, reflecting light naturally and producing a straight-looking smile without orthodontics, veneers permanently refurbish teeth for a youthful appearance.
Invisalign Customized clear aligners straighten smiles with mild to moderate orthodontic issues. Treatment time is shorter than traditional metal braces, and patients enjoy the discreet appearance and convenience of these comfortable and removable appliances.
Crown and bridge and dentures Smile gaps or completely missing teeth are hugely embarrassing, to say nothing of how they affect oral function and health. Dr. Scott uses realistic crown and bridge replacements to span gaps created by two or more teeth in a row. With the AvaDent Anatomical Measurement Device, he makes beautiful dentures that help edentulous patients smile about their oral function and appearance.
