Cosmetic Dentist Create Perfect Smiles

Your smile is a crucial aspect of your appearance and self-image, and it plays an important role in how others perceive you as well. Flawed teeth diminish your attractiveness and lessen your confidence. At Monet Aesthetic Dentistry, we can create your dream smile and change your life in the process.

Dr. Metzger has advanced training in cosmetic dentistry. She provides functionally aesthetic dental solutions that renew structural integrity and enhance natural beauty at the same time. Your tooth-colored filling, white crown, or custom-made porcelain veneers will blend seamlessly with your existing smile and deliver lasting comfort and function. To replace missing teeth, we offer fixed bridges and dental implant restorations that beautifully complete smiles and positively influence oral and overall health. Dr. Metzger approaches dentistry from our patients' perspective and delivers premium solutions for amazing smiles. Let’s take a closer look at some of the cosmetic services offered by your dentist in Farmington.

Porcelain Veneers

Sometimes there just seems to be so many flaws in a single smile. Chips, cracks, breaks, or permanent stains can make the idea of ever having a beautiful smile seem almost impossible. Porcelain veneers are made for just such a smile. Crafted from strong dental porcelain or composite resin, these are thin sheaths that are securely cemented to the facial side of the teeth. You’ll never have to think about those flaws again when you have porcelain veneers giving you an entirely new and attractive smile.

Metal-Free Dental Restorations

Patients no longer have to settle for silver or gold crowns when it comes to repairing the teeth that show prominently in the smile. At Monet Aesthetic Dentistry, we now only use 100% dental porcelain to restore the most prominent teeth. This material is strong, durable, and well-known for its ability to resemble real enamel in every way, even replicating its translucent appearance. Now, Dr. Metzger can create a restoration so lifelike that only she and the patient will know that they’ve had dental work.

Dental Bonding

Direct bonding is one of the fastest and most affordable cosmetic treatments we offer. With it, we can get rid of minor stains, chips, and gaps in just an hour or less. Dr. Metzger simply applies a tooth-colored resin to any damaged/missing enamel and uses it to literally sculpt a tooth to perfection. After a quick polish, it will look like just another part of the natural tooth. The procedure is quick, painless, and the results can be trusted to last for a decade or more.

Invisalign® Clear Braces

If you’ve always wanted to straighten your teeth, you no longer have to get noticeable metal braces to do it. Invisalign is able to achieve the same results using a series of clear plastic aligner trays that are practically invisible when placed on the teeth. With them, patients can get the treatment they need without sacrificing their daily appearance. Even better, they can easily take the trays out whenever it’s time to eat or brush their teeth!

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening can lift stains and discoloration caused by foods, beverages, medications, tobacco, and the aging process. Dr. Metzger offers take-home trays for gradual bleaching. Specially formulated bleaching gel penetrates the uppermost layers of the teeth to erase stains and reveal a brilliantly white smile. The natural tooth structure remains unchanged.

Take-home bleaching can be used in the privacy of your own home and on your own schedule. We recommend that you wear your custom take-home trays daily for ten days up to two weeks for optimal results.

No two mouths are identical, so it’s impossible to have a flat fee for cosmetic dentistry. Many things can influence the amount you’ll pay, like your consultation and any preparatory procedures. Dr. Metzger will examine your mouth and learn more about your goals to determine which elective service is right for you, like:

  • Porcelain Veneers: Applying veneers to the front sides of your teeth can correct many imperfections at once, like chips, stains, and gaps. You’ll enjoy dramatic results quickly using a minimally invasive method.
  • Metal-Free Dental Restorations: All-ceramic materials are used to customize restorations to look like real teeth. They are durable and biocompatible for a long-lasting solution that supports your overall wellness.
  • Dental Bonding: A cosmetic resin is shaded to match the color of your tooth. It will blend in when used to treat minor imperfections, like decay, chips, and cracks.
  • Invisalign: Clear aligners are worn over your teeth to fix bite and alignment issues. In about 12 months, you’ll have a straight, healthy smile.
  • Teeth Whitening: A professional whitening system can improve the color of your teeth by up to 8 shades.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Expensive?

You don’t have to be rich to afford cosmetic dentistry. You have several solutions to address common aesthetic flaws, which means there’s a solution to fit your budget.

Does Cosmetic Dentistry Hurt?

Dr. Metzger will always keep your comfort as her top priority. Depending on your treatment plan, she may use numbing medication to block pain, but it isn’t always necessary. After the effect of any medications wears off, some procedures can cause temporary tenderness. You can manage it with an OTC pain reliever and eating soft foods. Dr. Metzger will review any additional aftercare instructions before you go home.

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?

Every procedure has a different life expectancy and many factors will affect your results. You can get the most from your new smile with good oral hygiene. Commit to brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing daily. Break any bad habits that can damage your teeth, like chewing on your fingernails. Eat nutritious foods and limit sugars. Don’t forget to visit your dentist every 6 months for a cleaning and checkup.

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Take?

Everyone’s timeline differs. A consultation is your first step toward an attractive smile. It’s not unusual to require a little prep work, like a dental cleaning, filling, or gum disease therapy. Some procedures can be performed in one appointment, while others can take multiple visits. We will explain exactly how long you can expect the process to take during your consultation.
