Millennium Dental is a modern dental office with advanced cosmetic options for restoring your smile.

Modern dentistry has made amazing advances in technology that make visiting the dentist feel more like going to the spa. The techniques and materials used to improve smiles have changed too, with more options than ever before. 

Test your cosmetic dentistry IQ. Did you know that…?

One: 1 in 4 people don’t show their teeth when smiling.

Did you know 1 in 4 people dislike their teeth enough to hide them while smiling? Are you one of those people? If so, know that you have several options to correct dark, discolored, or stained teeth. Whitening, bonding, or veneers can all be useful in enhancing your smile.

Two: Veneers hide chipped teeth.

You don’t have to live with chipped teeth. Dental bonding can repair chips, or porcelain veneers can completely hide the damage.

Three: Veneers fix the appearance of crooked teeth.

Making sure your bite is well-aligned and functional is included in the evaluation to determine which option will work best for you, of course. But if you have mildly crooked teeth, you may not need orthodontic correction. Instead, veneers may be able to make your teeth appear perfectly straight.

Four: 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth.

Do you have a missing tooth? Accidental trauma, a tooth that was badly decayed and jeopardizing your oral health—there are a multitude of reasons 178 million Americans are also experiencing tooth loss. Our dental team can restore smiles using bridges and crowns.

Five: Crowns restore beauty and function.

Cracked or worn teeth are a common problem, but a crown will provide an attractive new appearance while also restoring functionality. Additionally, a crown will help to protect your remaining healthy tooth structure from further cracks or breaks. 

Six: Metal fillings can be replaced or covered.

A tooth that is silver from amalgam metal fillings can be unsightly. However, a crown covers the entire visible portion of your tooth, putting fillings out of sight. Depending on the state of your remaining tooth structure, you can even choose to have your amalgam fillings removed and replaced with either a crown or with composite resin, which is now most often used in fillings. 

Seven: You can fix gaps in 1 to 2 office visits.

Many patients are unhappy with the large gaps between their teeth. Dental bonding or veneers are the answer and will give you the confidence to smile again.

Eight: Composite resin fillings were first used in the 1980s.

If you need a filling for a cavity in a conspicuous location, why not choose a composite resin filling? Unlike silver fillings, composite fillings are tooth-colored and blend in perfectly with your smile.

Nine: Crowns protect your tooth pulp.

A broken tooth is not only painful, but it also mars the beauty of your smile. A crown will cover and protect your broken tooth while ensuring your smile stays bright. Once your enamel has been compromised and your dentin is exposed, a crown will also protect the dentin and the innermost layer of your teeth—the tooth pulp—from food particles and harmful bacteria.

Ten: A smile makeover is 100% about your needs.

If you have multiple cosmetic dental issues you would like resolved, then a smile makeover is for you. A smile makeover may consist of veneers, whitening, and other individually tailored treatments to give you the look you want.

The smile you want, your way, is possible.

Because of the way Bioclear is placed on the tooth, it also offers better protection of your natural tooth from future decay than other cosmetic options such as veneers.
