A great smile compliments the real you by expressing your personality and showing people who you are. Unfortunately, dental defects can sometimes stop you from wanting to show your teeth off. However, cosmetic dentistry services can change all of that. Your Federal Way dentist, Dr. Todd Yoshino, loves to make people smile with confidence. As such, he offers many aesthetic treatments to recreate damaged smiles. Learn more here.

 

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dental services build on the foundation of healthy teeth and gums. They cover, rebuild, remove stains, realign crooked teeth, and more. Applied singly or in combination as a complete smile makeover, aesthetic treatments from Dr. Yoshino's Federal Way office are sure ways to make it so your smile is brimming with good health and confidence.

Cosmetic dentists have specialized training in state-of-the-art dental techniques. Combined with premier materials, these techniques render artistic results that are truly individualized.

At the heart of any makeover—whether simple or complex—is the dentist/patient consultation. During this dental, you will tell Dr. Yoshino what you would like to improve, and then be presented with realistic ideas on how to arrive at these goals. A finalized treatment plan works toward those goals step by step.

 

Offered cosmetic services

One of the most popular cosmetic services available is professional teeth whitening. Delivered either during one in-office visit or more gradually at home via custom-made acrylic trays, concentrated peroxide gel powers out stains from tobacco, dark drinks, dark foods, and some prescription drugs. It's an economical, fast, and supervised way to brighten dull tooth enamel for an immediate impact.

Another popular service is composite resin bonding. Using a tooth-colored blend of glass particles and plastic, Dr. Yoshino adds structure and shape to teeth flawed by cracks, chips, uneven length, small gaps, and more. Cured and polished, composite resin is durable and natural-looking.

Composite resin bonding often is combined with porcelain veneers. Veneers, or dental laminates, disguise the front side of teeth which have larger defects, such as substantial chips, intractable stains, or odd positioning (tooth rotation). Often called "instant orthodontics," customized veneers strengthen tooth enamel, too. They are a less invasive alternative to dental crowns.

Finally, for people desiring straighter, healthier smiles with less hassle than traditional braces, Dr. Yoshino offers Invisalign clear aligners. Made of smooth, biocompatible acrylic, these snug aligners reposition teeth discreetly and quickly for the best cosmetic and oral health benefits possible.
