A person's smile has the ability to change their whole outlook on life. A winning smile is often seen as a sign of confidence. If you have unsightly, crooked or discolored teeth, your confidence level may not be at its full potential. This is where cosmetic dentistry can help.
The American Dental Association does not recognize Cosmetic Dentistry as a specialty. A family dentist with advanced cosmetic training and experience will be able to help you achieve an attractive smile; however, depending upon your condition you may require assistance from other dental professionals such as an orthodontist to straighten your teeth or adjust your bite, or a periodontist to re-shape your gum tissue or help you achieve good oral health before you start.
Cosmetic dentistry covers a diverse range of dental procedures to improve the appearance of your smile. Procedures may include tooth reshaping to improve the tooth appearance, tooth shape, tooth position, tooth color or tooth length. The process may be achieved by the use of one or more procedures including, but not limited to, tooth whitening (also known as tooth bleaching), replacing old metal crowns and silver fillings with tooth colored crowns and fillings, bonding to add tooth shape and color, veneers to add tooth width-length-color, crowns, fixed crown and bridge, dentures and dental implants. You may have already had cosmetic dentistry without realizing it. If you have had a crown or tooth-colored filling placed in your mouth, then you have had cosmetic dentistry.
One of the most positive aspects of cosmetic dentistry is the difference it can have on a person's attitude towards life. An enhanced smile means the person will smile more, seem friendlier and ultimately be a happier person. The psychological and emotional changes are said to be amazing. If you want a smile that people will remember then in just a few simple visits to your dentist you can have the smile of your dreams.
Ball Dentistry in Indianapolis offers both single-visit teeth whitening and take-home teeth whitening kits to brighten stained, discolored, or dull looking teeth.
We can fix minor cosmetic dental problems such as closing small gaps between teeth, adding tooth length or change the overall shape of a tooth by bonding a special resin to your tooth. Bonding is the least expensive dental procedure that can fix such issues compared to porcelain veneers or porcelain crowns.
We can correct many orthodontic problems without the hassle of traditional braces by using Invisalign! With no wires or brackets, Invisalign comfortably and invisibly straightens your teeth while allowing you to eat the foods you love and to brush and floss like you normally would.
Our extensive aesthetic dental training means we can place ultra-thin natural looking porcelain on uneven, chipped, discolored, or worn teeth to give you the smile you've always wanted.
Metal fillings are virtually a thing of the past and at Ball Dentistry we have the technology to replace any unattractive metal fillings with natural looking tooth-colored fillings making them almost invisible to the naked eye. These composite fillings are structurally bonded to your teeth making them much less likely to fall out which was a regular problem with silver/amalgam fillings.
Sometimes, gaps between the upper two front teeth are caused because the soft tissue fold between the upper lip and gums extends down farther than it should. A frenectomy is a simple procedure that removes this large fold and allows the space between the teeth to be corrected.
A gummy smile can cause you to be self conscious about smiling with friends and family and dread taking photos. We at Ball Dentistry can easily enhance a gummy smile with a gum lift and can give you that full smile you are looking for.
Occasionally, patients have a bite that is broken down after years of wear and tear on the surface of the teeth. We have special training that enables us to rebuild these teeth to create a comfortable, functional and aesthetic bite.
Our offices provide smile makeovers to achieve the beautiful, natural look you seek. We can reshape your natural teeth to make them straighter or more youthful in appearance. Our offices are easily accessible and makes it convenient to those living near Indianapolis to get the care they deserve.
