What can cosmetic dentistry do for you?
Improve your bite — Roughly 20% of Americans do not have an ideal “bite.” One of the many benefits of cosmetic dentistry is that your bite will likely improve tremendously, helping you eat better. You also won’t damage your teeth every time you bite down on something because of your bite. You will be now able to enjoy biting down into anything and having your teeth properly bite down and align together.
Start showing off your beautiful smile — No more hiding your smile during meals or while your picture is being taken. Now, thanks to cosmetic dentistry at Jax Beaches Family Dentistry, you can show off that beautiful smile.
Enjoy any kind of food you want — After cosmetic dental procedures you’ll likely be able to enjoy just about any type of food you want – biting into a fresh ear of corn or chomping into a juicy steak without fear of damaging your teeth or an inability to break down the food itself.
Feel better about yourself — Dental health and the appearance of your smile can impact many aspects of life. Tooth, gum and jaw pain can cause migraines, insomnia, and other persistent issues. Feeling great about your new beautiful smile can make you more confident at work, socializing and dating.
A crown is a cover or a cap placed over a tooth. A crown restores the tooth to its normal shape, size, and function. A crown can make the tooth stronger and improve the way it looks. Make no mistake, you want an experienced dentist doing this type of work on your mouth.
If you are dealing with gum issues you need to consider PerioProtect™ perio trays. Perio Trays work by sealing close to the gums to prevent medication from seeping into the mouth. The pressure created by the seal forces the medication into pockets under the gum line, reaching deeper than any other non-invasive gum disease treatment can.
A gum lift or gum contouring procedure also referred to asa “gingivectomy.” It reshapes excessive or uneven gum tissue around the teeth in a simple and painless process that typically requires only one appointment.Gum contouring is typically performed as a cosmetic procedure to improve your smile. However, it can also be recommended as a restorative dental procedure to reduce the effects of chronic periodontal disease and generally improve gum health.
Dental or Porcelain Veneers are customized shells made of porcelain or a composite resin that fit over your teeth to improve their appearance. Veneers are especially helpful in improving your smile if you have teeth that are chipped, stained or misshapen. The purpose of veneers is generally cosmetic, but you may have them fitted as part of an overall dental makeover that includes treatment for gum disease.
Veneers are stain-resistant resin-based composite or porcelain covers that are glued to the front of the teeth. They will create a cosmetically satisfying appearance by covering teeth that are discolored, misshapen or chipped.
Dental bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure in which a tooth-colored composite resin material is applied to your teeth to improve your smile. Bonding can improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, broken, cracked, stained or have spaces between them.
Bonding your front teeth requires minimal preparation of the tooth. Anesthesia is usually not needed unless there is an old restoration or decay present. The tooth is roughened with a conditioning gel to help the bonding material adhere to the tooth. The composite resin is then applied and cured with an ultraviolet light.
Total Smile Makeovers
This is some of the most fun and exciting comprehensive work we perform at Jax Beaches Family Dentistry.Smile makeovers dramatically correct the appearance of your smile with the help of a single or multiple cosmetic dentistry procedures including teeth whitening, dental veneers, composite bonding, tooth implants, etc. The smile makeover often takes into consideration factors such as skin tone, facial appearance, tooth alignment and spacing, hair color, lips, and gum tissue to develop the ideal smile customized for the individual.

Patients who experience the most benefit from having their teeth whitened include patients who:
• Are in good overall dental health
• Maintain good dental health (i.e. brush two times a day, floss, receive regular dental checkups every six months, etc.)
• May suffer from slightly discolored or yellow teeth
• Wish to improve the look of their smile
• Are in good physical health
Teeth whitening is a safe, effective procedure, and does not typically include any negative side effects. One rare and minor side effect is increased tooth sensitivity to hot or cold that typically lasts very briefly.
