Cosmetic Dentistry for Southern Maine
It is important to note that, since cosmetic dentistry is a special type of dentistry, only a qualified dentist should be doing this type of dentistry. You want a dentist who is specially trained in cosmetic dentistry, preferably one trained at the nation’s premier cosmetic dental school, the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. Gray, ME cosmetic Dentist Dr. Robert Beebe is an LVI Fellow and offers a full range of cosmetic dentistry services as well as affordable financing options.
Only you can decide to take the first step towards improving your smile and your dental health. Once you do, Dr. Robert Beebe will be with you every step of the way. He will explain all of your options, and recommend the procedure or procedures which will give you the smile you have always dreamed about.
Here is a list of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures:
- Teeth (or tooth) whitening. This is also called “bleaching”
- Composite and porcelain veneers
- Dental implants (to correct missing teeth)
- Dental bonding
- Dental bridges (to replace missing teeth)
- Tooth contouring and reshaping (for more minor changes)
- Dental fillings (Fillings are now matched to the color of your teeth)
- Dental crowns
- Cosmetic gum surgery (used to correct a “gummy smile”)
In some cases, a combination of several procedures may be used to correct a problem. Each mouth is different, and only a qualified cosmetic dentist can determine what will work best for you.
There are very few dental problems that cannot be corrected by cosmetic dentistry. Most cosmetic dental procedures require around two appointments. While most of your questions and concerns will be answered during your initial exam with Dr. Beebe and Lori, that is hardly the only time Dr. Beebe will be available to you. At LVI, he learned the importance of keeping you informed about each step of your procedure. Every aspect of your treatment will be explained to you in as much detail as you like, until you feel comfortable.
Each cosmetic dentistry procedure is highly dependent on the individual features of your mouth and teeth – Dr. Beebe will discuss your options with you and give you a recommendation based upon your individual needs and his many years of experience. He will always make a recommendation as to what he considers the best route to take, but all other possible cosmetic options will be presented to you as well. Treatment will be based upon what your needs and your wants are.
A beautiful smile will improve your life in so many ways and it can be less then a month away! You will find yourself becoming more outgoing and confident. You willl no longer be embarrassed to smile and laugh. You will discover that cosmetic dentistry is truly something worth smiling about!
