Cosmetic Dentistry


Beautiful woman smilingCosmetic dentistry has skyrocketed in popularity over the past few decades. At Florida Smiles Dental, we specialize in several cosmetic services aimed at improving the appearance of your teeth and overall smile. From minor cosmetic changes to full-tooth restorations, we have got you covered!

Teeth Whitening


One of the most common complaints we receive involves the brightness of our patients' smiles. For this reason, we offer professional teeth whitening treatment. Teeth whitening is one of the most basic and cost-effective ways to improve your smile. Stains from certain foods, drinks, medications, and personal habits, also known as extrinsic stains, are easy to remove with a bleaching solution. However, many store-bought bleaching products leave people dissatisfied with the results. Because we are trained professionals, we use a bleaching agent with a much higher concentration than store-bought alternatives. Our whitening treatment could make your teeth up to eight shades brighter in just a single appointment!

Types of Dental Crowns


Prized for their versatility, dental crowns have long been a reliable restorative dental prosthesis for damaged and missing teeth. When used on their own, over existing teeth, dental crowns can help fix chipped, cracked, or broken teeth and restore their shape and function, and when paired with dental implants, crowns make an ideal solution to replace missing teeth. Designed to mimic natural teeth, dental crowns come in several varieties, so patients can choose the one that best suits their needs. The types of dental crowns most commonly used include: porcelain dental crowns, metallic dental crowns, porcelain fused to metal dental crowns, and temporary dental crowns.

Porcelain Crown


A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that completely covers the visible portion of a damaged or decayed tooth. In previous years, a dental crown was fabricated using a gold or silver amalgam. These days, porcelain is usually the material of choice. Porcelain is a ceramic compound that mimics the light-reflective properties of natural enamel. It can also be textured and color-matched to your existing teeth. Thanks to porcelain and other ceramics, crowns can also be used to fix the aesthetics of an unsightly tooth.

Placing Dental Crowns


Placing dental crowns requires preparation. When you go to the dentist, they may identify the damaged tooth or portion and open it to create a crown base. Typically, dentists trim damaged teeth to make them ready for placing crowns. Once prepared, the dentist may apply a temporary crown cap on the tooth. You may need to wait a few weeks before the dentist calls you again to place the permanent crown. Please note that the materials described earlier are for permanent crowns. Temporary crowns only serve as transitional caps to avoid damaging the tooth further. Moreover, temporary crowns may not offer the same durability and eating freedom as permanent crowns. When you get it, you may ask your dentist to advise you on precautions to handle temporary crowns.

Dental Veneers


A dental veneer is a razor-thin shell that is bonded to the front surface of a tooth. Like our dental crowns, our veneers are typically made from porcelain. Veneers can be used to fix teeth that are severely discolored, worn down, chipped or broken, misaligned, uneven, irregularly shaped, or even gapped. During the procedure, we have to remove a small amount of enamel to accommodate the thickness of the veneer. For this reason, the veneer procedure is considered irreversible.

Veneers vs Dental Crowns


Are you planning on having a smile makeover or replacing a missing or broken tooth and need help figuring out where to start? Different types of dental treatments can be of great help to you. The most popular dental treatment types are dental veneers and dental crowns. Most patients do not know the appropriate type that suits the condition they are suffering from; hence, they will require an experienced dentist to guide them. At Florida Smiles Dental we have employed a team of skillful and knowledgeable dentists with years of experience in the dental industry.

Dental Bonding


Patients looking for a less-invasive and more cost-effective solution may benefit from dental bonding. Dental bonding involves the application of composite resin, a putty-like material, to the surface of an aesthetically displeasing tooth. For example, dental bonding is an excellent solution for minor chips or cracks. During the procedure, the composite resin will be color-matched to the existing shade of your enamel, making it virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your tooth.
