On top of cleanings and cavity fillings, have you ever wondered what services are offered at Dr. Marchbanks’ office? Did you know there were cosmetic services that Dr. Marchbanks specializes in?
While we believe that preventative dental services are the key to having and maintaining a smile, we realize that even with the most diligent care, some of our patients are still disappointed with their smile.
Teeth are more than just a way to break down food—they are the first thing someone sees when you smile. For the millions of Americans who are self-conscious about their teeth, this can actually lead to poorer economic outcomes, fewer job opportunities and a lower feeling of self-worth. Study after study has found the correlation to an uncertain smile and less success in these buckets. And these are all things we want to help our patients overcome!
Through cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Marchbanks is able to restore and reshape smiles. Some patients have admitted to a certain apprehension about perusing cosmetic procedures for fear they may look vain or that they are unnecessary. We do believe those fears are needless. The procedures done in our office help to rebuild smiles that help to boost quality of life.
Below are some of the procedures that Dr. Marchbanks specializes in. If you feel like you are a candidate for one (or several), give our office a call today!
The foundation of cosmetic dentistry is to create positive changes to your mouth. Teeth whitening is one of the most basic ways to accomplish that goal. It’s estimated that 90% of dental patients have asked about tooth whitening at one point or another. Professional tooth whitening removes stains and brightens your smile, which results in a lighter shade of teeth. Many dentists note that patients come in for whitening before important interviews or big events like a wedding. This quick-and-easy procedure leaves patients more confident about their smiles and appearance, and in-office whitening can be completed in a single visit. Ask us next time about how you could benefit from this completely pain-free procedure.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic that are used to recreate the natural look of teeth while also strengthening each tooth individually. Each veneer is uniquely crafted for a patient, because only then do we ensure that your smile remains natural. Veneers allow for small adjustments to the color, tooth size or shape, and position of the tooth as well.
Severe tooth loss can lead to a host of issues that impact self-esteem, nutrition and oral health. Due to the severity of these issues, many of our patients are curious about dental implants, but just as many worry about the cost or pain associated with the procedure. Modern implants use titanium to form an artificial root of the tooth. Once surgically implanted into the jawbone, the titanium actually bonds with the jawbone and heals much quicker than previous iterations of the technology. This advancement has made the procedure easier and gives increased confidence and comfort to patients, so don’t hesitate to ask us for more information.
Millions of American adults are unhappy with the way their teeth look. Some have never had braces, and others had braces in their teenage years but have since seen their teeth shift around again. While many of us are familiar with traditional braces, their bulkiness and visibility are a turn-off for most of us in the professional world. Thankfully, due to progress in orthodontic technology, other products that straighten teeth have hit the market. One of the most popular options is Invisalign. Invisalign is a treatment process that relies on a series of removable trays that slowly move and correct alignment.
