Cosmetic (Esthetic) dentistry is the form of dentistry that deals with the look and function of one's teeth. If you have chipped, stained, or crooked teeth, we can help you attain that perfect smile!
The doctor and experienced staff at Kneib Dentistry will ensure that you are comfortable and relaxed with us during any procedure. We offer nitrous oxide and premedicated oral sedation in order to make any experience as pleasant and painless as possible, and with our offices located in Erie, we can serve the entire region easily and conveniently.
Cosmetic dentistry at Kneib Dentistry is not a major operation. Often, it may require only a minimal number of treatments from Dr. Kneib before you are able to showcase your brand new look to friends, family, and coworkers. When you see how dramatic the results of cosmetic dentistry can be, you'll have plenty of reasons to smile.
What does cosmetic dentistry fix?
At Kneib Dentistry, our cosmetic dentistry can correct chipped, weakened, or discolored teeth. We can also offer an affordable alternative to getting the smile you deserve with our Snap-On Smile.
Cosmetic dentistry refers to cosmetic dental treatments meant to restore a more attractive smile. In addition to improving your appearance, many cosmetic procedures can also improve your self-confidence and self-esteem. A beautiful smile makes a great first impression on new co-workers and at professional events.
How does the appearance of my teeth affect me?
The appearance of the teeth has a dramatic effect on both the person's attractiveness to others and on their own self-image and self-esteem. Studies have shown that a person's appearance will have a strong effect on their social and career success by influencing how others perceive them.
While the appearance of the teeth is one of the most important contributors to facial beauty, it is also probably the most often neglected when improvements to appearance are sought. A person with low self-esteem connected to their facial appearance can often be greatly helped by dental procedures.
Dental makeovers at Kneib Dentistry have become more common, less invasive, and more effective in correcting deformities and dental problems. The effect of these procedures can be nothing short of dramatic, both regarding appearance, and also regarding correcting, at least partially, personality deficiencies caused by poor self-image. Ugly teeth are no longer a matter of fate; they are now becoming a matter of choice.
Once cosmetic dentistry procedures have been performed, what kind of results can a patient expect?
In general, cosmetic dentistry offers patients positive cosmetic changes to teeth and gums through using combinations of cosmetic dental procedures. For example, cosmetic whitening can brighten a patient's smile dramatically. Porcelain veneers are custom-made cosmetic coverings that can be attached to the front of teeth. Dental bonding adjusts the appearance of small cosmetic problems like chips or cracks in teeth.
Gum contouring can remove excess gum tissue surrounding a tooth or teeth. Crowns may be necessary for cosmetic procedures such as cosmetic implants; crowns are also used as cosmetic replacements for damaged or cosmetically damaged teeth.
Dental implants can correct cosmetic problems such as an uneven smile or cosmetic gaps between teeth. Cosmetic dentures, which include cosmetic partial and complete dentures, can change the overall cosmetic appearance of a patient's mouth and face to give the patient a more aesthetically appealing look.
