Cosmetic Dentistry

Even if you have impeccable oral health, there may be a few aesthetic elements you’d like to change. Treatments in cosmetic dentistry focus on enhancing your overall appearance and bringing symmetry to your smile.

At Well Rooted Dentistry, our team offers a wide range of aesthetic treatments to boost your confidence. As a holistic practice, we use only biocompatible dental materials to promote whole-body health. Below, we will explore the most common treatments offered by your cosmetic dentist in Providence, RI.

Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is safe, effective, and can brighten your smile by several shades. At Well Rooted Dentistry, we offer two teeth whitening systems:

  • ZOOM!: Hence the name, ZOOM! whitening offers dramatic results in a short amount of time. In fact, most patients can achieve a brighter, whiter smile in just one hour.
  • KöR: Patients who have dental sensitivity may be better suited for KöR teeth whitening. This system involves both in-office and at-home whitening that can lighten the teeth by up to 16 shades.

Dental Bonding

Chips, cracks, gaps, and discoloration can detract from your smile. Bonding involves the application of a biocompatible material called composite resin. This material is custom shaded to the color of your natural teeth. Your dentist uses the composite resin to conceal any dental imperfections. After applying it to your teeth, the material is shaped, molded, and polished for beautiful, lifelike results. Dental bonding can be completed in a single office visit.

Tooth Contouring

Dental contouring involves removing minute amounts of enamel to change the shape or size of a tooth. Our dentist use the most conservative methods to preserve as much natural tooth structure as possible. Tooth contouring can address chips, cracks, or misshapen teeth. In some cases, your cosmetic dentist in Providence, RI will combine tooth contouring with dental bonding for dramatic results. This procedure only takes about one hour to complete.

Porcelain Veneers

Individuals who want to dramatically improve their smile’s appearance can opt for porcelain veneers. Like bonding, veneers can camouflage a range of aesthetic flaws, including deep discoloration, cracks, chips, or slight misalignment. Veneers are strong, thin shells crafted from medical-grade ceramic. These shells are affixed to the front teeth surfaces to bring uniformity to your smile. In most cases, patients can complete porcelain veneer treatment in about two appointments with our cosmetic dentist in Providence, RI.

Laser Gum Contouring

Some individuals have excess gum tissue that covers portions of their teeth. This condition, which is caused by genetics, can make the teeth appear too small or disproportionate with the rest of your smile. Our periodontist performs laser gum contouring, which eliminates excess gum tissue and reshapes the remaining gumline. While traditional contouring was performed with scalpels and sutures, this advanced technique uses laser light energy. As a result, patients enjoy a reduced risk for bleeding, infection, and other postoperative issues. Laser gum contouring can be performed as a standalone procedure or in conjunction with other cosmetic treatments, such as veneers.
