With a great smile, you can take on the world. Cascadia Dental offers a variety of cosmetic dentistry services, including veneers, crowns, teeth whitening, chip repair, and more.
From fixing chips to closing gaps, veneers are a popular option to help you achieve a straighter, healthier-looking smile. Veneers are wafer-thin, durable shells made of porcelain or composite resin that are custom-made to cover the front surface of the tooth to improve its appearance.
Our prosthetic crown restorations are one of our most popular procedures and are made to restore a damaged tooth to its original shape and size. Crowns are permanently cemented right onto the tooth and fully encase the cracked, decayed, or otherwise damaged portion of the tooth above the gum line. These crowns — made of porcelain, ceramics, resin, metal, or gold — are custom made for each tooth and give support to teeth that aren’t working well on their own any longer.
Bridges are fixed dental restorations that close the gaps in your smile made by missing teeth. These dental restorations are typically made out of porcelain to look just like your natural teeth and aesthetically blend in with your smile. Traditional bridges are connected via crowns on the abutment teeth on either side of your gap. You may opt for dental bridges to adjust your smile, restore your speaking and pronunciation, restore your ability to chew, readjust your bite, or prevent your teeth from misaligning.
Teeth whitening is the process of whitening your smile through the use of hydrogen or carbamide peroxide to break down stains and discoloration. This procedure usually only takes one visit to our office and is a simple and pain-free way to feel better about your smile. Consult our specialists before deciding to opt for teeth whitening, as some discoloration is more difficult to lift than others, and veneers, crowns, and fillings will not whiten.
Gum Whitening / Gum Bleaching
At Cascadia Dental Specialists, we use dental lasers to lighten darkened gingival tissue via gum lightening or bleaching. Gum bleaching improves the natural color of your gum tissues surrounding your teeth if they are discolored or hyperpigmented. Gum hyperpigmentation can be due to several causes, from genetics to poor dental hygiene to regular coffee or tobacco use.
An anesthetic will be applied, or sedation dentistry will be offered before the dental laser will gently erase the patches of discoloration or deep pigmentation. Lighter, pinker, and healthier gums will be the result. Gum whitening will give your gums a more uniform and aesthetically pleasing appearance, and can augment periodontal surgery.
