How long have you lived with a grin that you’re just not happy with? How long have you been smiling with your lips closed and strategically hiding your mouth behind your hands?
And now think about what you’d like for the upcoming new year. Do you want to endure another twelve months of embarrassment and avoiding social situations? Or do you want to — finally — get the beautiful smile that fits your personality and spirit?
While cosmetic dentistry is about improving the appearance of your pearly whites, its results are far from superficial. Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. How you feel about your smile is reflected in your self-confidence, how you carry yourself, and, consequently, how other people perceive you — whether in a job interview, on a date, or just in ordinary daily interactions.
At Kirchner Dental of Jeffersonville, IN, we offer a comprehensive menu of cosmetic dentistry solutions. Whatever your particular dental problems, goals, and budget, Dr. Kirchner or Dr. Sherry can recommend the procedure — or series of procedures, in a full smile makeover — that will best fit your needs. Call 812-406-0914 today to book your cosmetic dentistry consultation.
Tooth bonding is a relatively simple, painless, and inexpensive procedure that can nevertheless deliver stunning results and cover a wide variety of flaws. If you have any of the following dental complaints, you may be a good candidate.
- Your teeth have small chips or cracks
- Your teeth are stained or discolored
- You have gaps or spaces in your smile that you’d like to close up
- You’d like to tweak the shape or length of your teeth
- Tooth bonding may also be used to protect tooth roots that have been exposed due to gum recession
Tooth bonding requires little preparation, and can typically be completed in just one office visit. Unless we are working with a decayed area or repairing a chip near a nerve, anesthesia is generally not required.
We will apply a putty-like resin that’s an exact match to your tooth color, mold it, and then harden it with a special light. Finally, the resin will be trimmed, smoothed, and polished so that it gleams just like your natural teeth.
Whiten your dingy smile, and you will look more vibrant and years younger. At Kirchner Dental, we use Zoom professional teeth whitening products, which are far more effective than anything you’ll find at the drugstore.
The in-office treatment gives you fantastic results in just one dental visit. We apply a safe but powerful whitening gel to your teeth, and activate it with an LED light. By the time you walk out of the office (in about an hour), your teeth will be up to eight shades lighter.
If you choose the at-home system, we will provide you with custom trays perfectly fitted to your mouth and a supply of whitening gel. You will wear the gel-filled trays for a prescribed amount of time each day, and will get dramatic results in a week or so. The at-home treatment gives you control over your whitening.
A dental veneer is a thin shell that is bonded to the front of the tooth, hiding chips, stains, and a host of other imperfections. Veneers can even cover gaps, disguise mildly crooked teeth, and give worn-down pearly whites a flawless appearance. Dental veneers are custom-made, perfectly matched to the shade of your teeth, and look totally natural.
At Kirchner Dental, we offer three fantastic veneer options. Durable, stain-resistant e.max porcelain veneers require the removal of a small amount of enamel before fitting. We also have two types of “prepless” veneers that don’t require enamel removal: Lumineers and DuraThin. Dr. Kircher or Dr. Sherry will be happy to discuss which veneer will work best for you.
Gummy Smile Treatment
When you smile, are you dissatisfied with the look of your gums? Are they too prominent, making your teeth look small? If you have an overly “gummy smile,” we can help you out. With our technologically advanced, minimally invasive dental laser, we can actually trim back and reshape your gumline, giving you a beautifully balanced grin.
It’s time to give yourself the smile you’ve always wanted. To discuss which procedures will best fit your needs, schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Sherry or Dr. Kirchner of Kirchner Dental. We even offer ClearCorrect and Invisalign invisible orthodontic systems!
