Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is a smile makeover?

A smile makeover, or cosmetic dentistry, is both an art and a science. Dr. Lee takes a detailed approach to cosmetic dentistry, gathering X-rays of your teeth and reviewing each one carefully. One-by-one, he’ll map out your teeth and develop a plan to improve the appearance of your smile. Through teeth whitening, chip repair, or dental veneers, Dr. Lee can greatly improve the quality of your teeth.

If needed, Dr. Lee also offers permanent dental implants, crowns, and bridges to help fill in gaps from missing or decayed teeth. Using state-of-the-art technology and advanced materials, Dr. Lee will work with you to ensure that any new teeth match your existing teeth flawlessly.  

How does in-office whitening differ from at-home kits?

Over-the-counter whitening kits are not as effective as in-office whitening procedures and can damage your teeth if used improperly. At Dr. Lee’s office, he uses a special light that allows the whitening gel to penetrate deeper than is possible with at-home whitening kits. He also takes great care to protect delicate gum tissue during the whitening procedure, so your entire mouth remains in beautiful shape.

How do I keep my teeth looking great?

After you’ve invested in cosmetic dentistry, you’ll want to protect your beautiful new teeth by practicing excellent oral hygiene. Floss and brush your teeth regularly to remove food and plaque buildup. If you play a sport that could result in injury to your teeth or gums, or you grind your teeth during the night, you may also want to invest in a custom mouthguard to protect your teeth from wear and damage. Dr. Lee will take impressions of your teeth and design a tear-resistant guard that’s custom-fit to your smile.
