A sparkly smile has a profound effect on how young you look. A whiter and brighter smile that reveals even teeth and a healthy, gleaming pink gum line can take ten years off of your true age. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry states 9 out of 10, or 92.5 percent of Americans agree that an attractive smile is an important social asset.
With cosmetic dentistry services by our McMinnville office, our dentists can make your smile light up a room when you enter it. Through different procedures, we’ll create that beautiful smile of which you’ve been dreaming. From teeth whitening and veneers to dental implants, crowns and bridges, Drs. Golly and Oliver can change an average smile into a brilliant one.
Smile design, using veneers, crowns and bridges, can create a new look for you, making your teeth look straighter, longer, whiter, and more vibrant in as little as three weeks. Bonding or veneers can plump out fine wrinkles by opening up a collapsed bite and the facial sagging that results from it. They can restore normal shape to worn down teeth, and fix widely spaced teeth and gaps in your smile.
Many adults want to change their smiles. Some want to correct problems they have had since childhood, such as discolored, gapped, or crooked teeth. Others want to fix conditions they’ve developed over time, such as cracked or worn-down teeth, to help create a more youthful smile.
Natural-looking alternatives such as advanced metal-free crowns, veneers, bridges, and inlays/onlays look, feel and function like your own teeth, allowing us to conserve as much of the natural tooth as possible. And, did you know that cosmetic dentistry may plump out the wrinkles and lines on the lower third of your face–without surgery?
If your teeth are dark or worn and make you look older, if gaps or chips make you feel self-conscious, or if crooked or discolored teeth stop you from smiling fully, a Smile Design can help. Although every patient’s smile is unique and may require more or less restoration, some new smiles can be completed in a single visit. A Smile Design can redesign the shape of your gums and teeth, and change the overall look of your smile. It’s not just about beautifying your smile, although that is of extreme importance. It’s also about adjusting your bite so that it is healthy and strong.

Invisible braces that we provide–such as Invisalign–straighten your teeth without the need for uncomfortable and unsightly metal wires and brackets. While braces produce beautiful results, many patients never wear them for fear of looking unattractive or having many cavities at the end of the treatment. Invisalign is an alternative way to produce results—and is nearly invisible. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth right before your eyes. Change them about every two weeks, and your teeth will move—little by little, week by week—until they have moved to the final position your dentist has prescribed.
Implants offer a permanent solution for replacing missing teeth for those patients who are suitable candidates for this treatment. Dental implants have become a choice treatment option for many patients who are missing one or more teeth. A dental implant is a replacement tooth “root” constructed of medical grade titanium. Dental implants are extremely stable, strong and natural looking. Patients with dental implants are able to eat, smile, and laugh without fear of embarrassment that their denture may slip or click, or that their bridge will trap food.
The benefits of dental implants include:
Eat all those delicious foods that are difficult to chew.
Smile without concern about your teeth.
Talk and laugh with the fear of missing teeth being noticed or dentures becoming loose or falling out.
Dental implants can never decay.
Dental implants have the potential of lasting a lifetime.
Teeth that appear too long, or too short, or a smile that is “all gums” can be improved greatly with gum line reshaping. With a painless laser procedure it is easy to transform a gummy smile to one that is beautiful.
It is possible to fix chipped teeth, reshape cracked teeth and close gaps between teeth with contouring materials. Layer by layer, a strong, natural looking material is carefully and artistically applied to recreate the smile you once had, or to give you the smile you have dreamed about for years. Your smile will look natural and last a long time.
Crowns and bridges, as well as implants with modern, natural-looking materials can close very wide gaps and restore function, appearance, and the proportion of your smiling face.
If more than half of your tooth has been restored with a filling, a crown is necessary. Without adequate support, the tooth may break away around the filling. As a rule, when fillings get larger, teeth become weaker. That is why a crown is necessary. A crown covers the entire tooth and holds it together. Crowns are used when large fillings wear out, when a tooth is cracked, or when cosmetic improvements must be made on teeth.
Bridges replace missing teeth with artificial teeth, look great and literally bridge the gap where one or more teeth may have been. They fill the unsightly spaces left by missing teeth.
