All of our patients in Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, Arcadia, and greater Phoenix, Arizona, deserve to have teeth and gums that support a confident smile. Cosmetic dentistry facilitates these confidence-boosting smiles. Furthermore, even those procedures at Agave Dental designed to correct functional and health-oriented challenges to the teeth, gums, and mouth are also attractive – they look like natural teeth! Also, our four talented dentists take great care to craft cosmetic procedures and restorative treatments with a cosmetic side effect. They are exacting in their planning and use the latest precision diagnostics. With this blend of expertise and technology, any enhancements complement your one-of-a-kind smile. The materials we introduce or the shade or color we use never look fake, plastic, or too big for your smile. Our team accounts for all the characteristics that add to your uniquely unforgettable smile!
It’s been said (and research suggests) that the most beautiful faces are symmetrical. The same theory applies to teeth. Gaps between teeth and other forms of uneven spacing, as well as chips and other surface irregularities, can make a tooth located on one side of the face look larger or smaller than its counterpart on the other.
Youthful features are valued across cultures. Since children’s healthy teeth are generally white, teeth that are free of stains are furthermore associated with youth and vibrancy. The aging process causes the white protective enamel layer to thin. As the yellow dentin layer underneath is exposed, your teeth may appear stained instead of white. The effects of decades of coffee or tea consumption and even smoking may also wreak havoc on the color and appearance of your teeth.
Normal wear and tear and habits such as tooth grinding can lead to chipping. Age-related changes and the cumulative effects of acidic sodas and foods can alter the natural, smooth, and uniform texture and shape of teeth.
Are you familiar with the phrase “long in the teeth?” This notion refers to gum recession, which occurs as you get older and due to conditions such as periodontal disease. As tissue retreats and pulls away from the teeth, your smile may look “toothy.” More of the tooth is exposed and contributes to that overly “long” appearance. Teeth and gums that are evenly proportioned help to retain the overall beauty of your smile. These and other cosmetic imperfections can be resolved with the following:
- Professional teeth whitening
- Dental bonding (direct veneers)
- Porcelain veneers (indirect veneers)
- Orthodontic treatment (braces and clear aligner therapies like Invisalign®)
- Tooth contouring
- Gingival contouring
- Aesthetic dental restorations; composite or ceramic fillings, inlays, partial crowns, crowns, bridges, dentures, and implant-supported prostheses
