Northampton, MA – Have you spent your adulthood trying to hide your teeth, embarrassed to smile broadly because it isn’t as pretty as you’d like? Then make your New Year’s resolution to be to smile proudly in your next family photo by treating yourself to a smile makeover. Cosmetic dentistry offers something for everyone, and a new smile can be just a phone call away.
“We offer everything from minimally invasive procedures to total smile makeovers,” says Dr. Lisa B. Emirzian. “From bonding and crowns to porcelain veneers and tooth whitening, we can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.”
Creating the perfect smile for each patient is an art, and the Northampton MA dentists at EMA Dental have perfected it. If you’re looking for a minimally invasive way to better your smile, dental bonding could be your answer. Bonding can improve gaps, chips and even discolored teeth. By etching the surface of the tooth and then gently applying a bonding liquid to the tooth, the dentist prepares the tooth to apply the composite resin. The resin will be sculpted and then trimmed, smoothed and polished to create the most natural appearance possible.
Bonding is a great option because it can be completed in one visit and without anesthesia. It results in an immediate improvement and will last many years for most patients.
Porcelain veneers can also correct stained, misshapen or crooked teeth, and without undergoing a major procedure. Veneers are thin, ceramic shells that are adhered to the visible surfaces of your teeth with a special dental adhesive. They are both versatile and simple, and many patients love them.
“Our patients love veneers because they give such an incredibly natural look,” says Dr. Emirzian. “They are super thin and are even highly resistant to staining, so they’ll maintain their beauty for a long time to come. They are very strong, but to be sure they last their entire lifetime, your dentist will give you special instructions on how to care for them.”
Dental crowns are another popular esthetic option that work to restore broken teeth or to protect weak teeth. They are also excellent for supporting teeth that may have had large fillings, or can cover teeth that are misshapen or severely discolored.
One option that EMA Dental offers is all-ceramic crowns, which provide a more natural appearance than traditional metal ceramic crowns. The best option for the type of crown you need will be determined by your dentist based on the location where it is needed and your specific goals.
If crooked teeth are keeping you from smiling, Dr. Emirzian and EMA Dental also offer Invisalign as an option.
“Patients love Invisalign because it is an invisible and comfortable way to straighten your smile,” says Dr. Emirzian. “Through a series of clear, removable aligners, your teeth gently move to their more esthetically pleasing locations, resulting in the smile you’ve always wanted. Proper alignment of teeth also improves overall dental health by making all areas more accessible for brushing and flossing properly”
Tooth whitening offers an easy and effective way to brighten your teeth so you can smile broadly. Over time, our teeth become discolored, because of the foods and drinks we partake in, as well as other habits. Additionally, as we age, our enamel gets worn down, which then shows the yellow core beneath it.
But there is good news for you and your smile. EMA Dental offers many whitening options including ZOOM! Advanced in office whitening treatment and customized at-home whitening program. In-office whitening is the fastest way to get the brightest smile because it utilizes a cutting edge technology that can whiten teeth eight shades in just an hour.
The at-home whitening treatment is just as effective as In-office whitening, but the results are achieved over a couple of weeks instead of hours. Gel is applied using custom-made bleach trays. And in just a few weeks, your smile will be brighter than ever.
A total smile makeover can involve more than one of these procedures and will provide the most esthetically pleasing smile possible. To determine which procedures might be right for you, schedule a consultation with a cosmetic dentist who will work with you to develop a treatment plan that will best meet your goals..
