Enjoy a Stunning Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic dentistry is designed to enhance the appearance of your smile, correct surface blemishes, and improve your self-confidence. Dr. James Magee III proudly offers a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures at his Orlando Cosmetic Dentistry practice. In addition to the treatments listed below, restorative procedures, such as porcelain crowns, can also improve the esthetics of your smile. Contact Clifford Family Dentistry today to learn more about your treatment options and find out which ones may be right for you.
We offer several types of teeth whitening. Our patients can choose between in-office laser whitening and take-home teeth whitening trays. If you undergo laser whitening, Dr. Magee or our hygienist will apply teeth whitening gel to your teeth. A powerful laser will activate the gel, allowing it to break apart the chemical bonds between stains. In just 30 minutes, laser whitening can lighten your smile by six to eight shades or more. The procedure will be virtually discomfort-free with minimal post-whitening sensitivity. Dr. Magee will also provide whitening trays for routine touch-ups.
If you opt for at-home treatment, you will receive a set of teeth whitening trays, custom-fabricated from impressions of your teeth. You will fill the trays with teeth whitening gel and wear them for a prescribed number of hours, usually 1-2 a day, over a period of a few days. Talk to Dr. Magee about tooth sensitivity and other concerns so he can recommend the best teeth whitening solution for you. At-home teeth whitening is less expensive but the results are not as immediate and typically not as dramatic as the effects of in-office care.
Porcelain veneers can thoroughly transform your smile in just one or two office visits. Dr. Magee will take impressions of your teeth. Based on these measurements, our partner dental lab will fabricate thin porcelain shells that will adhere to the front of your teeth. Veneers can cover up a diverse range of blemishes, including stains, chips, and small cracks. They can also correct slight misalignment, close gaps in your smile, and even reshape your teeth.
Alternatively, your Orlando cosmetic dentist may recommend bonding. Using tooth-colored composite resin, he can achieve many of the same effects that he can with porcelain veneers. Bonding does not usually last as long as veneers. However, it is a very affordable treatment, and you can receive multiple touch-ups in the future.
Even if you long for a straighter smile, you may dread the thought of bulky metal braces. Fortunately, Invisalign® can achieve comparable results using virtually undetectable aligner trays. Dr. Magee will take impressions of your teeth, and Invisalign® technicians will custom-create a series of aligners. Approximately every two weeks, you will switch to a new tray. In about 9 to 18 months, you could enjoy a stunning smile, better bite alignment, and improved oral health.
