At Anderson Dental, we offer a number of cosmetic solutions depending on your situation.

The best course of action is to simply tell our Doctors of Anderson Dental what you’d like your smile to be like, and he’ll advise you of the best treatment to achieve those goals.

Here’s a little of what we do:

Dental Veneers

Porcelain Veneers & Resin Veneers

Often an alternative to crowns, veneers are very thin pieces of specially-shaped porcelain or plastic that are glued over the front of your teeth with little or no anesthesia needed. They are the cure for teeth that are severely discolored, chipped, have small holes or pits, misshapen or crooked, or for the correction of unwanted or uneven spaces. Unlike crowns, veneers won’t require Anderson Dental to remove much of the tooth itself in most cases. It is important to ask your Doctors of Anderson Dental how much tooth will be removed. In some cases more tooth will need to be removed, which may increase the risk of trauma to the tooth.

Dental Bonding

What is tooth bonding?

Bonding is a composite resin filling placed in the back teeth as well as the front teeth. Composites are the solution for restoring decayed teeth, making cosmetic improvements and even changing the color of your teeth or the reshaping of teeth. Bonding will lighten any stains you may have, close up minor gaps and can be used to correct crooked teeth. Basically, bonding will cover any natural flaws applying a thin coating of a plastic material on the front surface of your teeth. After this, our Doctors of Anderson Dental will apply a bonding material and sculpt, color and shape it to provide a pleasing result. A high-intensity light then hardens the plastic, and the surface is finely polished.

Teeth Reshaping & Dental Contouring

What is teeth contouring and reshaping?

Tooth reshaping, or contouring, is one of few instant treatments now available in cosmetic dentistry. Dental reshaping and contouring is a procedure to correct crooked teeth, chipped teeth, cracked teeth or even overlapping teeth in just one session.

The dental contouring procedure can even be a substitute for braces under certain circumstances. It is also a procedure of subtle changes. A few millimeters of reduction and a few millimeters of tooth-colored laminate can create a beautiful smile when performed by our Doctors of Anderson Dental, with no discomfort to you. Tooth reshaping, or dental contouring, is commonly used to alter the length, shape or position of your teeth.

Same-Day Dental Crowns

Tooth Crowns in Royal Palm Beach

A tooth that has been structurally damaged by decay or trauma sometimes needs to be crowned or “capped” so that it can look good and function properly again. A crown is a durable covering that is custom-made to fit over the entire tooth from the gum line up. Crown fabrication traditionally takes place in a dental laboratory. But these days, there’s a much more convenient alternative: same-day crowns made right here in the dental office.

Advanced dental technology known as Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing, or CAD/CAM, allows us to fabricate laboratory-grade crowns and other dental restorations in minutes. It’s an amazing innovation when you consider that traditionally, crowns take two or three visits and just as many weeks of waiting. Now you can have a restored tooth without the wait.

Best of all, studies have shown that CAD/CAM tooth restorations are just as successful as crowns made with traditional materials and techniques. And the amazingly lifelike appearance of a same-day crown means that no one will know your tooth has been restored.

FAQs About Cosmetic Dentistry

What Kind of Dentistry is Cosmetic?

Cosmetic dentistry is a specific and professional focus on bettering the overall appearance of your mouth, which includes your teeth, gums, and smile. Cosmetic dentistry’s range of focus can be anything from minor fixes to major cosmetic surgeries such as teeth whitening, fillings, dental implants, and veneers, and more! So, if you want whiter teeth, dental veneers, or full a smile makeover, come see the expert cosmetic dentists at Anderson Dental who will not only improve your oral health, but will also give you the dramatic results you're looking to find!

Can Veneers Fix Rotten Teeth?

Depending on the severity of the tooth decay present, veneers can restore rotten or decaying teeth that are situated in the front of the mouth. Our professional staff at Anderson Dental in Lake Worth will assess the condition of your teeth via X-ray, and if the decay is too severe, the tooth may be ineligible for a veneer and require a root canal or even complete removal. If you're thinking about getting veneers, contact us to speak with one of our expert cosmetic dentists or if you're ready to get started, schedule an appointment online!

What’s the Difference Between a Dentist and a Cosmetic Dentist?

The major difference between general dentistry and cosmetic dentisty is that a general dentist’s main responsibility is the prevention and treatment of dental disorders associated with discomfort as well as maintaining overall health of your teeth, whereas a cosmetic dentist is mostly concerned with the overall appearance of your teeth and smile. For example, a general dentist deals with oral issues like tooth sensitivity, and a cosmetic dentist deals with things like tooth color, dental implants, and whitening treatments.

Are Veneers Bad for Your Teeth?

No, porcelain veneers are not bad for your teeth as long as you see a qualified cosmetic dentist and get the proper treatment. At Anderson Dental in Royal Palm Beach, we have certified cosmetic dentists who will treat any decay and prep your natural teeth to make sure they are healthy before implanting veneers, ensuring they’re harmless to you and your teeth.
