Cosmetic Dentistry in Salida, CO

Are you unhappy with the appearance of your smile? Enhancing your smile with cosmetic dentistry can have extraordinary benefits for your self-esteem, confidence, and even your overall happiness. At Relaxation Dental Specialists, we offer a range of cosmetic treatments, so we can reshape, whiten, straighten, and improve the overall appearance of your smile. In some cases, cosmetic dentistry goes much further than appearance and can also improve oral health issues, like bite misalignments.

Zoom Teeth Whitening

The most popular cosmetic dental treatment in America is teeth whitening. At Relaxation Dental Specialties, we offer ZOOM! teeth whitening, as a way for patients to instantly reverse the effects of staining. ZOOM! Whitening is a safe and low-cost way to whiten smiles that have yellowed due to smoking, coffee, or other food or drink stains.

ZOOM! whitening is a fast acting in-office whitening system. In only an hour, you can transform your dull and yellowed teeth to beautiful pearly whites. Our in-office whitening system is safe, effective, and fast acting.

Unlike most of the other whitening systems, ZOOM is a light-activated whitening gel that was scientifically formulated with pH balanced Hydrogen Peroxide. When the Hydrogen Peroxide gel is activated by the ZOOM! Light, it gently removes deep stains and discoloration in the teeth. After your whitening treatment, you’ll only need the occasional whitening treatment.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers can totally transform your smile. Veneers are thin porcelain shells that work by covering the existing tooth. Porcelain veneers are a common cosmetic dental treatment used to reverse chips, misshapen teeth, or fix permanent stains. The process for veneers only takes a few visits to our office.

During the initial consultation, we look at the existing shape of your teeth, what you would like changed, and how veneers can help your reach your goal. During the next appointment, we will prepare your teeth for veneers, then take an impression of the teeth. Then, the impression will be sent to the lab, where your new veneers will be fabricated. Once your final veneers are bonded to your teeth, they will feel like your real teeth and look even better.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is an easy cosmetic solution for filling cracked teeth or gaps in your teeth. Dental bonding is sometimes used to cover stains from discolored teeth or to fill in a pit from a cavity that has been removed.

Dental bonding is created from a composite resin, which is then sculpted and shaped over a gel that is placed over the tooth. Then, the resin is hardened by exposure to ultraviolet light. After the resin hardens, it is then polished for cosmetic detail.

Dental bonding is the best cosmetic solution to silver amalgam fillings. Lasting upwards to 10 years, bonding is a safe and low-cost way to cosmetically enhance your smile and treat dental problems.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are a convenient cosmetic solution for dealing with missing teeth. With dental bridges, we span the gap of a missing tooth by using the neighboring teeth as anchors. The dental bridge process is simple.

The existing teeth adjacent to the missing space are reshaped for crowns to fit over them. These teeth are considered “abutments,” since they serve as the base for the bridge. The bridge, which is made up of two crowns and a center replacement tooth, are then placed over the abutments with a strong adhesive.

Dental bridges restore your ability to eat and speak properly, as well as the aesthetic beauty of your smile. With proper maintenance and regular dental checkups, dental bridges can last for years.

Dental Crown Lengthening

Crown lengthening is performed as a cosmetic dental treatment, and sometimes as a restorative dental treatment. Have you ever heard of a “gummy smile”? “Gummy smile” is a term used to describe smiles in which the teeth appear too small, and the gums are too visible. Sometimes people have gummy smiles, because there is too much gum tissue hiding the teeth.

In crown lengthening procedures, we reshape extra bone and gum tissue, making the teeth appear more visible and beautifully shaped. In restorative cases, crown lengthening is used to remove decay under the gumline and reshape the gum and bone tissue, before restoring a broken or decayed tooth with a porcelain crown.
