A person’s smile is a great first impression. By making improvement through cosmetic dentistry, Eighth North Dental Center helps our patients enhance many aspects of their lives, including their careers.

Eighth North Dental Center has pursued more than 500 hours of continuing education credits in the pursuit of enhancing his cosmetic dentistry services and offering the most comprehensive options. He typically recommends patients schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation in which patients can explain their cosmetic concerns. After examining a patient’s teeth, he can discuss available cosmetic services that could address the patient’s concerns.

Option #1: Teeth Whitening 

One of Eighth North Dental Center's most popular services is teeth whitening. Teeth can become stained through foods and drinks consumed as well as yellowed as a side effect from aging. Because darkened teeth can age a person, many patients opt for teeth whitening as a means to turn back the clock and make the teeth appear healthier. 

Professional teeth whitening at our Provo, UT office is more effective than over-the-counter whitening products that may only lighten teeth by one to two shades. Professional teeth whitening can whiten teeth anywhere from six to eight shades lighter—a dramatic difference.

 Option #2: Bonding and Veneers

Speaking of dramatic differences, cosmetic dentistry procedures such as bonding and veneers can dramatically change the appearance of a person’s teeth. Bonding utilizes tooth-colored material to re-shape a tooth or to conceal a gap in a patient’s tooth. Bonding enhances or adds on to a tooth that is chipped or stained. If a patient has multiple teeth with these concerns, veneers may be the best choice. Eighth North Dental Center takes a custom mold of a patient’s teeth and glues tooth-colored shells over the teeth to create the appearance of perfectly shaped teeth. Veneers have long been a method that Hollywood actors have used to improve their smiles.

Option #3: Tooth Colored Fillings and Dental Crowns

Eighth North Dental Center also utilizes cosmetic methods when a patient has a damaged or decayed tooth. For example, we use cosmetic or tooth-colored fillings to repair cavities. He also creates custom crowns if a patient has tooth decay so significant that a root canal is required. Crowns can also enhance the appearance of a stained, chipped or cracking tooth.

Whatever service is desired, cosmetic dentistry at Eighth North Dental Center office in Provo, UT can give you a smile that damage, injury or genetics had previously made impossible.
